Track Name: Get To Know
I told you I loved you.
You told me that’s exactly what you didn’t want me to do.
Now there’s mud tracks from your shoes.
Wherever you went I didn’t get invited to.

Oh oh oh oh oh, let’s get to know,
All the things we like,
And the things that we don’t know.

Today is your birthday.
You told me that my gift to you was comin’ back every day.
But love drives me to stay.
No matter what you do or say you know I’ll come back anyway.

Oh oh oh oh oh, you don’t care to know,
All the things I like,
And the things that I don’t know.

Oh oh oh oh oh, you just don’t know,
All the things I hate,
And the places I want to go.

Oh oh oh oh oh, let’s get to know,
All the things we like,
And the things that we don’t know.

Oh oh oh oh oh, let’s get to know,
All the things we hate,
And the places we want to go.
Track Name: Shake You Off
Fallin – For you. Seems like
It was less like I just fell and maybe More like
I was pushed. Sounds right. What am I
Supposed to do – when you Don’t leave me any room – to
Ask you for the check? You got your hands around my neck.
You got me wrapped around your-

[chorus] Much as I try, To shake you off.
I don’t get why, You haven’t thought,
That now my cup is empty I don’t want you to,
Run into the back and make another brew.

Seems like I played voluntarily.
Just a piece in your monopoly But honestly,
If I’d known that you’d just play me like a board game,
Do you think, I’d feel the same?
Am I supposed to do
The things you want me to when – I don’t know who you are?
If you don’t stop you’ll leave a scar.
You got me chasin’ after-

[chorus] Much as I try, To shake you off.
I don’t get why, You haven’t thought,
That now my cup is empty I don’t want you to,
Run into the back and make another brew. (2x)

Will you – Make your lies sound like the truth?
Never ask me any questions – Keep the focus in on you?
Will you tell me first – or Will you make it worse?
Your service isn’t worth the Wait to get dessert.
Think I’ll show myself out.

[chorus] (2x)
Track Name: Metaphorically Speaking
Eyes black as holes,
Leading to the center of the earth in which
You fall through constantly and I can’t help but pity you.
Your reasoning is unfathomable to everyone
But you.

Here you go again,
Trying to understand the world through a box of chocolate truffles.
Here you go again
Not wanting to listen to the birds.
They are trying to tell you
You are hypnotized.
There’s no life in your eyes.

Afterwards,
You’ll get thrown to the curb,
On the corner of Heartbreak and Disillusionment.
Sitting at the bus stop waiting for 258.
When you know it’s not comin. for days.

Here you go again,
Trying to understand the world through a box of chocolate truffles.
Here you go again
Not wanting to listen to the birds.
They are trying to tell you
You are hypnotized.
There’s no life in your eyes.

But you don’t wanna listen to us
‘Cuz you’re in love.
She’s eating the chocolate truffles of your heart
And when she’s done
She’s gone.
Track Name: Key To My Heart
Sorry, I’ve misplaced the key.
That not only opens up my heart,
It also opens me.
And I don’t know – Where it’s gone.
But I hope – It hasn’t gone too far.

Guess I’ll be the one who has to break your heart.
I don’t want to be. But you can see,
I’m not in a position to start – Loving you.

Don’t take this – The wrong way.
I’ve temporarily shut down And my key was thrown away,
Accidentally. Gonna get it back again.
And then hopefully – We can be more than friends.
I can’t be the one that holds the key to your heart.
You can see – I’m not in the position to start.

I can’t sleep at night,
Knowing that you’re awake too.
My heart hurts all the time,
Not being able to love you.

It’s hidden,
Around somewhere.
It’s behind a picture frame of mine,
Or underneath a chair.
I don’t know where.
But once it’s found I’ll make a spare.

I can’t be the one who holds the key to your heart.
I really want to be.
But you can see,
I’m not in the position to start,
Loving you.
Loving you.
Track Name: Under The Rug
Don’t – Go that way.
It’s okay to turn around but
If you make a sound
you’ll Wake – Your fate – Your destiny
To be imprisoned.

You’re – Not around.
You close your eyes and everything is perfect
And that’s how you prefer it.
Don’t – Waste your time – Trying to fix it
Won’t make a difference.

You don’t know if you are going to fast.
You don’t know if you are going to last.
You don’t know how to read your map
But you’ve – already gone – This far.

Every single faulty frowned upon,
You don’t know
Beneath the rug the unwanted lives on.

You don’t know if you are going to fast.
You don’t know if you are going to last.
You don’t know how to read your map
But you’ve – already gone – This far.

Every single faulty frowned upon.
Beneath the rug the unwanted lives on.
