Set Phasers to Stun
Say yes, say yes, say yes, say yes
Say yes, say yes, say yes, say yes

I'm sorry it took me so long
I'm sorry it took me so long (to come around)
I'm sorry it took me so long (to come around)

Your famous last words started once your fingers hit the snooze
Just nine more minutes, please..
(And they) They all know where to find me
Every word that I said, what a big mistake
And the ones you looked down are keeping me away

Well I will never make another promise (without you)
I will never make another promise (with you in mind)

So pace the stairs to your apartment
Like it's where you wanna be
(where you wanna be)
It's where you wanna be
(where you wanna be)

I'm sorry it took me so long
I'm sorry it took me so long (to come around)
I'm sorry it took me so long (to come around)

Well theres a secret I've been perfecting,
I swore I wouldn't but you let me
I'm comfortably confused
(and you...) You've gotten so removed
You know I, I could take the place of those pills
Ocean blue, paint it white
Now who ya gonna call tonight?

Well I will never make another promise (without you)
I will never make another promise (with you in mind)

So pace the stairs to your apartment
Like it's where you wanna be.
(where you wanna be)
It's where you wanna be
(where you wanna be)
[x2]

We paint our sins on the ceiling
I keep them glued to my chest
It keeps me close like a promise kept
(Say yes, say yes, say yes, say yes)

If I talk in my sleep, will you just keep trying? (We paint our sins on the ceiling),
I might give it up, if you just keep trying (Well I keep them glued to my chest),
If I talk in my sleep, if I talk in my sleep, it's gone (It keeps me close like a promise kept).
(Say yes, say yes, say yes, say yes)
I'm sorry it took me so long
(Say yes, say yes, say yes, say yes)
I'm sorry it took me so long
So pace the stairs to your apartment
(Will you stop me, I just wanna know?)
(I'm sorry it took me so long)
Like its where you wanna be
(Will you stop me, I just wanna know?)
where you wanna beback to top
Bonus Mosh, Pt. 2
So, scream I heard about your message,
And how it reeked of your indifference,
It bleeds horizontal straight from your wrist.
(So scream louder now)
I'm bound to come around about
(Bound to come around)
But canít you, canít you feel it rolling off your lips,
Tensing up your shoulders,
Címon say it is...

[Chorus]
Well, it's love (It's love)
Make it hurt (I deserve it)
Well, it's love (It's love)
Make it hurt (I deserve it)
Well, itís love, itís love, itís love...
Make it hurt.

I said I use the inconsistencies
To undress the machine,
You're the poster boy, their selling point, the focus for their new campaign.
(Something has to be done)
I'm bound to come around about
(Bound to come around)
Oh, but canít you, canít you feel it rolling off your lips,
Tensing up your shoulders, címon...

[Chorus]

The keys to the castle
(Are right where I left them)
The princess walked in just to take more attention,
'Cause after all, well isn't that all that I've been after and,
After all, well isn't that all that I'm after,
You're so...

(No way out) I'll give up in you, I'll give up in you,
(No way out) I'll give up in you.
(No way out) I'll give up in you, I'll give up in you,
(No way out) I'll give up in you.

I wanted you for nothing more,
Than hating you for what you were,
If that's what you wanted to hear,
(Well, if that's what you wanted to hear)
I wanted you for nothing more,
Than hating you for what you were,
(Don't leave, leave) If that's what you wanted to hear,
(If that's what you wanted to hear)
I wanted you for nothing more,
Than hating you for what you were,
(Don't leave, leave) If that's what you wanted to hear,
(If that's what you wanted to hear)
(It's love, it's love) I wanted you for nothing more,
(Make it hurt, I deserve it) Than hating you for what you were,
(If that's what you wanted to hear)
That's what you wanted to hear,
(To hear) If that's what you wanted to hear.

A Decade Under the Influence
Taking Back Sunday - A Decade Under The Influence

Sad small sweet, so delicate
We used to be this dying breed
I've got a bad feeling about this
I've got a bad feeling about this

You kept still until the long drive home
And slept safe and close to the window
I've got a bad feeling about this
I've got a bad feeling about

Who's to say you'll have to go
I could go all night
Well say you have to go
I could go all night
To hell with you and all your friends
To hell with you and all your friends

Hey sad, hey small, hey sure, hey porcelain
You're skin and bones, I'm a nervous wreck
I've got a bad feeling about this
I've got a bad feeling about this

You kept still until the long drive home
You slept safe and close to the window
I've got a bad feeling about this
I've got a bad feeling about

Who's to say you'll have to go
I could go all night
Well say you have to go
I could go all night
To hell with you and all your friends
To hell with you and all your friends, it's on
Well I've got a bad feeling about this
I've got a bad feeling about

Anyone will do tonight
Anyone will do tonight
Close your eyes, just settle, settle
Close your eyes, just settle, settle
Anyone will do tonight
Anyone will do tonight
Close your eyes, just settle, settle
Close your eyes, just settle, settle
Anyone (anyone) will do tonight

Close your eyes, just settle, settle

Well I got a bad feeling about this,
I got a bad feeling about this (to hell with you and all your
friends, it's on).
I'm coming over but it never was enough
I thought of you and my worst brings out the best in you
Well I got a bad feeling about this

This Photograph Is Proof (I Know You Know)
Well, I'll wait till you listen,
I wont say a word.
To follow your instincts,
Well just never worked for me.
Your silent but strong,
Yea, I'm playing that card, and your...
(and your noticing nothing again)

Now I'm lying on the table,
With everything you said,
Keeping in mind the way that it felt,
When the most I could do was to just blame myself,
When the most I could do was to just blame myself..
(Feel it out for once and feel nothing like everyone else)

And I know you know, everything,
I know you didn't mean it...
I know you didn't mean it...
I know you know, everything (drop everything),
I know you didn't mean it (start it all over)...
I know you didn't mean it (remember more then you'd like to forget)...

So, we're talking forever and you almost feel better,
But betters no excuse for tonight...
You see, it's never bad enough to just leave or give up,
But it's never good enough to feel right...

Now I'm lying on the table with everything you said,
It will, all catch up eventually well, it caught up and honestly,
The weight of my decisions were impossible to hold...
But they were never yours...
They were never yours...
They were never yours...

Well I know you know everything,
I know you didn't mean it...
I know you didn't mean it...
I know you know, everything (drop everything),
I know you didn't mean it (start it all over)...
I know you didn't mean it (remember more then you'd like to forget)...

Drop everything, start it all over,
remember more then you'd like to forget.
Drop everything, start it all over,
remember more then you'd like to forget.

Would you like to forget...
Would you like to forget...
Well drop everything, start it all over,
Well drop everything start it all over (would you like to forget).
Well drop everything start it all over,
Wtart it all...

Well I, know you know everything,
I know you didn't mean it...
I know you didn't mean it...
I know you know, everything (drop everything),
I know you didn't mean it (start it all over)...
I know you didn't mean it (remember more then you'd like to forget)...

The Union
--second singer's part in parentheses ( )--


I wait around (for that still small center)
From saint to sinner (well which one is it)
Just who do you think you are? (just who do you think you are?)
So who did you call to get this (Well is it who i think it is? I swear to god)
I'm gonna kill him (Well is it who i think it is?)
You always knew it was on purpose (So what's the point if it don't serve it's purpose?)
Splintered but focused, you're as good as gold (You're built from distractions and brilliantly dull)
I had a better friend in my worst of plans
(I had a better friend) than i ever had in either one of you

Well I never made a scene
Well they came to me
I never made a scene (I didn't have to)
Well they came to me
(I didn't have to...I didn't have to...)
Well i never made a scene
(I didn't have to...I didn't have to...)
Well i never made a scene

(I always hoped to avoid the issues, got me alone so i could undress you)
Home is where you make it love don't get yourself confused
Besides what's it to you?
(I traded my conscience for your...for your confidence)
Attack my lungs with lies to pass the time
And make states move like regular days

(I didn't have to...I didn't have to...)
Well i never made a scene
(I didn't have to...I didn't have to...)
Well i never made a scene
(I didn't have to...I didn't have to...)
Well i never made a scene
(I didn't have to...I didn't have to...)
Well i never made a scene

Well I never made a scene

New American Classic
This is one of my favorite songs off of the new album and I hope you
enjoy this little diddy as much as I did......
-------------------------------------------------------------

Verse 1

We've got to get better said, it's all in your head
We could live through these letters or forget it all together
See the months they don't matter it's the days i can't
When the hours move to minutes and i'm seconds away

Chorus

Just ask the question come untie the knot
Say you won't care (x2)
Retrace the steps as if we forgot
Say you won't care (x2)
Try to avoid it but there's not a doubt
And there's one thing i can do nothing about

Verse 2

We all that we need is just a reaction
It's too much to ask for when there's no attraction anymore
If chasing our dreams was just a distraction
I'll have to remember i know i can't go back

Chorus

Just ask the question come untie the knot
Say you won't care (x2)
Retrace the steps as if we forgot
Say you won't care (x2)
Try to avoid it but there's not a doubt
And there's one thing i can do nothing about

(Musical Break)

Chorus

Just ask the question come untie the knot
Say you won't care (x2)
Retrace the steps as if we forgot
Say you won't care (x2)
Try to avoid it but there's not a doubt
And there's one thing i can do nothing about

I Am Fred Astaire
I'm under the assumption
that I'm gonna be the one thats leaving you
tonight, tonight...
Well I flipped every switch
that I could find on my way out just to upset you more
(just to keep you busy) just to make you angry (just because you were right) just because you were...

All tired scream safe haven,
Let's get this out and on the table...

Fast forward to say four o'clock,
I'm keeping time, I'm holdin', we're always holdin',
(we're always holdin), we're always holdin, holding out...
And that's what got us here in the first place,
you should have never come here alone
(you should have never bothered at all), bothered at all...

Scream older and wiser, still filled with resentment
We get it, we get it...Oh (I haven't been happier since)
Older and wiser, still filled with resentment
We get it, we get it...Oh, Bree Ann (I haven't been happier since, I haven't been happier, not since.)

Well five o'clock the floor caught fire with footsteps (my footsteps)
And spread like a disease to the door
(I'm stuttering through it but I hear it) I-I-I hear its good t-t-to stick to what you know
And you know a whole lot of this, it all could have been avoided when
you were courtside for this nightmare,
Well since then I got myself come and listen...

Older and wiser, still filled with resentment
We get it, we get it...Oh (I haven't been happier since)
Older and wiser, still filled with resentment
We get it, we get it...Oh, Bree Ann (I haven't been happier since)

I haven't been happier since (Bree Ann)
I haven't been happier since (Bree Ann)
I haven't been happier since (Bree Ann)
I haven't been happier not since...

Well, it used to take so much more (I used to, I used to too)
It used to take so much more (I used to, I used to too)
I used to, I used to too...back to top
One-Eighty by Summer
Go on just say it,
You need me like a bad habit,
One that gives you the interest of in depth and love.

Go on just say it (Are you afraid to),
You need me like a bad habit (Say what you want to, tell me you want to),
One that gives you the interest of in depth and love (Are you afraid to say what you want to, tell me you want to).

Well I hold my tongue use it to assess,
The damage from way back when it mattered,
But nothing seems important anymore,
Weíre just protecting ourselves from our self,
And I donít think Iíll ever come back down (Well I donít think Iíll ever come back down),
I donít think Iíll ever come back down (I donít think Iíll ever come back down),
I donít think Iíll ever come back down (I donít think Iíll ever come backÖ),
I donít think Iíll ever come backÖ

Are you ashamed to say what you want to tell me you want to.
Are you ashamed to say what you want to tell me you want to.
(Go on just say it) Are you ashamed to (Go on just say it) say what you want to tell me you want to.
(Go on just say it) Are you ashamed to (Go on just say it) say what you want to tell me you want to.

Iím making the difference,
It just seems pointless,
Well Iíll be obvious,
Thatís got out of focus,
Why canít you just be happy,
Why canít you just be happy.
And I donít think Iíll ever come back down (Well I donít think Iíll ever come back down),
I donít think Iíll ever come back down (I donít think Iíll ever come back down),
I donít think Iíll ever come back down (I donít think Iíll ever come backÖ),
I donít think Iíll ever come back...

(Just come backÖ {over and over, about 15 times})
Come on just say it,
Come on just say it,
Well Iíll just say it,
Iíll just say it,
I need you defenseless, dependent and alone.

(Just come backÖ {over and over, about 9 times})
She says live up to your first impression,
Well my best side was your worst invention,
In case you live without the attention,
In case you live without the attention.

(Just come backÖ {over and over, about 8 times})
She says live up to your first impression,

Little Devotional
Well I'm blowing smoke out of your window,
And you're slipping back into your dress,
You know you were always such a lady,
I've always been impressed.
But gentlemen they don't ask questions (We can laugh about it orÖ),
Just keep quiet and pay attention (We both showed love forÖ).
Gentlemen don't ask questions (We can laugh about it orÖ),
We could pay attention.

I said Iím gonna have myself in shambles,
'Fore your folks, theyíre up and looking for some answers.
I said Iím gonna have myself in shambles,
'Fore your folks, theyíre up and looking for some answers.

Well I picture you in blue,
But I have to say Iím more partial to the red.
Deep dark and devastating,
Leaving no question as to where you've been.
I calm the crowd by keeping quiet,
Move like a shadow up to your mattress.
Gentlemen don't ask questions,
We could pay attention.

Do you think heíd be better, doing what I do best (Cause weíve all been reduced toÖ ),
Do you think heíd be better, doing what I do best (Cause weíre all here on purpose).

I said Iím gonna have myself in shambles,
'Fore your folks, theyíre up and looking for some answers.
I said Iím gonna have myself in shambles,
'Fore your folks, theyíre up and looking for some answers.

Do you think he'd be better, doing what I do best,

Do you think he'd be better, doing what I do best (Cause weíve all been reduced toÖ),
Do you think he'd be better, doing what I do best (Cause weíre all here on purpose).

...Slowdance on the Inside
Passed out in our school clothes so we'd wake up in our Sunday's best
I never asked for your opinion, I just got it and I get it
You move slow like daytime drama
And I'm boring like his songs
So while I'm taking you for granted
We'll be humming along

Well cross my heart and hope to...
I'm lying just to keep you here
So reckless (so reckless), so,
So thoughtless (so thoughtless)
So careless, I could care less

Well cross my heart and hope to...
I'm lying just to keep you here
(So reckless)
Well she's so heartless,
And I could care less

So paint your face up something elegant
And this town maybe a darker shade of red
Cause a long night means a fist fight
Against your pillow and my pearly whites
I want to hear you scream you like me better on my knees
So let us pray
(we don't believe in second chances)
So let us pray

Don't you ask me
Don't you move (anywhere)

Cross my heart and hope to
I'm lying just to keep you here
So reckless (so reckless), so,
So thoughtless (so thoughtless)
So careless, I could care less

Well Cross my heart and hope to
I'm lying just to keep you here
(So reckless)
Well she's so heartless
And I could care less

Well cross my heart and hope to
I'm lying just to keep you here (I'll keep you here, I'll keep you here)

One of us never did it but we're taking it all.
And tell me why you never promised that you wanted it all.
And her eyes never batted when she said it
It's a long night, open, know it...

This glass house is burning down (open all night, know it...)
You light the match, I'll stick around (open all night, know it...)
I'll give you everything you want (open all night, know it...)
And wish the worst of what I was (open all night, know it...)

This glass house is burning down (open all night, know it...)
You light the match, I'll stick around (open all night, know it...)

Tonight won't make a difference
Tonight won't make a difference
