Track Name: Arena of Love
Who's that hanging decorations for your party now?
It's the one who would have been the first one to cut you down
When things were just a little bit different
And you weren't so securely positioned

You know I don't believe in goals but I'm so glad you took the steps
That brought you here where you are today
But somehow I get the feeling
it won't be long 'til you're stepping away
Set a timid foot into the arena of love

This indifferent world is full of loneliness and fear
But some of us get lucky for a while
There are shit stains on our brains
But I love to see you smile

Put no faith in the forces that brought us together
They'll soon return to tear us apart
But let's enjoy this time,
later on we can stroke our lonely hearts
Set a timid foot into the arena of love
Track Name: Sympathetic Mind
Inside a classroom we get lectures
And then we go through metal detectors
They turn out the lights and show a movie
How to identify our latest enemy

Everyone I know is a terrorist
But I don't even know if they exist
Sometimes I think I hide a sympathetic mind

I think too much, my friends dismiss me,
Say I should shut up, no one will kiss me
I wish they'd understand, they mean so much to me
I wish they'd care about the things that I can see

Everyone I know is a terrorist
But I don't even know if they exist
Sometimes I think I hide a sympathetic mind

They search our lockers, they search our backpacks
And what they take out they never give back
They call it safety, I don't feel safer
They make a rule book and change it later

Everyone I know is a terrorist
But I don't even know if they exist
Sometimes I think I hide a sympathetic mind
Track Name: Please Caroline Stay
Her father smiled to see me on the stairs
He knew my parents well and called my name
I asked her what she wanted to do and she said she didn't care

And who would have known
As I drove out that long road
Filled up with the highest hopes
She wanted to be left alone

Her father was a doctor on the lake
Caroline didn't have too much to say
But oh what she'd written in the book I stole that day

And who would have known
As I drove out that long road
Filled up with the highest hopes
She wanted to be left alone

Please stay, stay
Caroline don't do it again
Caroline don't do it again
Track Name: The Great Rewards in Being Considered Normal
The dance is after the football game
And the lesson in the faces of the losing team
I'm just happy that for once it isn't us
I wonder, do I measure up?

Is my hair a bit too long?
Should I wait for a better song?
Do I talk too much or not enough?
I wonder, do I measure up?

And if you wanna dance with me
if you wanna dance with me
if you wanna dance with me at the semi-formal
That's my great reward
that's my great reward
that's my great reward for being normal

You and your friends sometimes disappear
I imagine what I don't hear
I wonder will our future be discussed
I wonder, do I measure up?

Is tonight a big success
Or am I just another mess
Am I worthy of your touch?
I wonder, do I measure up?

And if you wanna dance with me
if you wanna dance with me
if you wanna dance with me at the semi-formal
That's my great reward
that's my great reward
that's my great reward for being normal
Track Name: Fifth Year
All my friends are gone
These sidewalks are no longer mine
Pretend I'm new in town
I'll probably be fine

Left and leaving

The same girl I always see
And that boy I wanted to meet
Are snail tracks on my leaves
All drying a little too quickly

Left and leaving
Track Name: Swinging Lovers
I wish I may, I wish I might
Bring you back to this bed tonight

Let's try our best not to break each others' hearts

Believe me I wish in this dating scene
We could sleep around and not get mean

Let's try our best not to break each others' hearts

I don't wanna come off like a Christian creep
But my body makes promises it wants me to keep

Let's try our best not to break each others' hearts
