I'm looking for signs in the morning's pale blue skies I'm counting down the days to conspiracy the stereo groans with frequencies unheard by mortal man by I struggle to hear them I don't understand. I never understand. And as the Days go by and the clouds all sigh will you never come back to me? I'm seeing your life backed by evergreens, filled with midnight rides or at least that's how I think that it should be I have your words shot, ephemeral, lightning caught in glass hurled across the internet and on the phone, it's not your voice just artificial noise And as the Days go by and the clouds all sigh will you never come back to me? And as the days go by, I'm wondering why: will you never come back to me?

Analog Boy 03:06
All along, can't stop this coming on. It's just the painful realization that everything's gone wrong. Oh no, and what should I do? It's just the familiar feeling of what you own owns you. And we're so screwed, because we realize the truth. We're so screwed. I'm just an analog boy caught in a digital world. It's not fair - we see them everywhere. There's one in your pocket, without it you'd feel bare. We didn't need them then, and I don't see how. iI's just like "I-Robot," but they look like cell-phones now. And we're so screwed, because we realize the truth. We're so screwed. I'm just an analog boy caught in a digital world. Hey, I'm a superhero. Well, maybe not a superhero. Well, less like a hero than a boy. I need more comfort, I need more time, I need more comfort. I'm just an analog boy caught in a digital world.

I have always done just what I wanted to. Why am I always surprised when the ceiling falls through? They say you build your life brick by brick glass and wood blood and bone everyday. And mine's in flames. It's what I want. Nothing is. It's what I know that I can't trust. Well I . . . Why should I care what's down the road, when I'm right here? I don't know where I'll be tonight, much less in a year, so riddle me this: Who gets what they want today, then gets what they need tomorrow? No one I know. It's what I want. Nothing is. It's what I know that I can't trust. It's what I want. Nothing is. It's what I know that I can't trust. What I want is what I can't trust.

Countdown 04:09
The clock goes the wrong way around in my apartment - it only counts down to when time runs out. Seems everyday someone else leaves. Someone important to me disappears down the end of my street Living here's two times as hard as double I thought it would be, and you can't make me leave 'Cause every day's a battle that's won, my heart in my hand holding on, to give and give 'til it's gone. And I'm very unhappy here, and there's nowhere that I"d rather be. I'm bruised and I'm broken but I'm still here. And if I ever leave this place, middle finger up and tears run down, I'll sit and I'll whisper "I still hate this town." And I'm very unhappy here and there's nowhere that I"d rather be. I'm bruised and I'm broken but I'm still here. And if I ever leave this place, middle finger up and tears run down, I'll sit and I'll whisper "I still love this town." 4 3 2 1

Leaving 03:18
I don't want to have to be the one who says it's over, but it's over. Yeah, it's over. This whole thing, it's like a vaccum It makes lots of noise, and yeah, it sucks too, 'cause it's over. Yeah, it's over, and I don't want another part of this. I'm leaving, though I don't want to. Though autumn turns these summer leaves, my thoughts of you are evergreen. I'm leaving, though I wish it wasn't true. I may be going far way, but I'll close my eyes to be close to you. Wear a mask, yeah I'm like a raccoon See, I'm sorting through the trash of what we all could do, 'cause it's over. Yeah, it's over, and I don't' want another part of this. I'm leaving, though I don't want to. Though autumn turns these summer leaves, my thoughts of you are evergreen. I'm leaving, though I wish it wasn't true. I may be going far way, but I'll close my eyes to be close to you. I'm leaving, though I don't want to. Though autumn turns these summer leaves, my thoughts of you are evergreen. I'm leaving, though I wish it wasn't true. I may be going far way, but I'll close my eyes to be close to you. A broken glass lays on the floor, A broken watch in a bedside drawer.
