Track Name: Squares
Goddamnit, Sara, why won't you just get out of your head for once?
Into the moment for once?
So what if you bled for once?

Goddamnit, Sara, why don't you just hear what I said for once?
So what if I fled for once?
Or shut up instead for once?

You were my city.
You were my squares.
You were my island.

You were my hotel.
You were my trains.
You were my eyelids.

You were my army.
You were my guns.
You were my violence.

You were my city.
You were my squares.

Goddamnit, Sara, the timing's just never been right for us.
But I think it might've once
if we'd have just lied that once.

Goddamnit, Sara, I thought that you'd be out of my head by now.
But if we stay steady now,
I could be ready now.

You were my city.
You were my squares.
You were my island.

You were my hotel.
You were my trains.
You were my eyelids.

You were my army.
You were my guns.
You were my violence.

You were my city.
You were my squares.

Things are getting heavy now.
But if we stay steady now,
I could be ready now.
I could be ready now.
Track Name: The Night I Dragged Your Drunk Ass Back to Queens
There's something about the skyline
from the spot you picked in the park
that I can't out of my mind.
Not that I'm trying that hard.

And I'd inhale, overwhelmed by the scene,
but you say you're getting cold, and can't we find someplace to drink?

Well, ain't it always fuckin' somethin'.

We've been riding the R line
back to the edge of your house.
In New York, you can't see the stars shine
but they reflect off the edge of your mouth.

Like I said, you just don't know what it means
when you say you've been seeing some other guy in Queens.

Well, ain't it always fuckin' somethin'.

I've been getting better.
You can't prove I'm not.
It's only bad when I get drunk,
and I'm only drunk when it gets dark.
But there's something about the skyline
from the spot you picked...

eh, but then there's always fuckin' somethin'.
Track Name: Fuck's Sake
For fuck's sake, just come home.
What do you think you're proving?
What do you think you're proving?

For fuck's sake, just come home.
What do you think you're proving?
What do you think you're proving?

I don't know what's wrong with me,
these mornings when I just can't sleep,
but I try.
It doesn't seem like much to spend
for a couple lines of heroin,
so I might.

Lord knows I might just write a check that I ain't payin'.

All of the taxicabs with their lights on
are pointed at Manhattan.
They're pointed at the bridge.
None of the taxicabs with their lights on
wanna take me home,
or go to where I live.

For fuck's sake, just come home.
What do you think you're proving?
What do you think you're proving?

Why you ask when we both know
where I'm going when I go
at night.
When you ask me where I've been,
you're just looking for evidence
that I lied.

But we both know I lied, so why you gotta make me say it?

For fuck's sake, just come home.
What do you think you're proving?
What do you think you're proving?

For fuck's sake, just come home.
What do you think you're proving?
What do you think you're proving?
Track Name: Couldabeen
There's a part of me that wishes this whole plane would just go down.
There's a part of me that wishes this whole plane would just go down,
and let the fuel burn up my body before we even touch the ground.

Yeah, if I died,
people'd still think I
wouldabeen something.

Maybe it would save my reputation.
Maybe you'd forget about the blow.
Maybe I could sell a couple records.
Yeah, and maybe then you'd finally know how much you love me.

There are days when I wish the ice caps would hurry up and drown me.
There are days when I wish the ice caps would hurry up and drown me,
fill the streets with neck-deep water through this God-forgotten town.

Yeah, and through the storm,
we'll tell each other to keep warm
'bout how we couldabeen something.

Donnie says the armageddon's coming.
I'm like 50/50 if I care.
Yeah, and it's a funny disposition,
honey, when it's neither here nor there whether you love me.

There's a part of me that wishes this whole plane would just go down.
There's a part of me that wishes this whole plane would just go down,
and let the fuel burn up my body before we even touch the ground.

Yeah, if I died,
people would still think I,
I couldabeen something.
