Track Name: Graffiti
Every time a slide goes by
I'm hoping just to see your face
With broken bottles at our feet
And my arm around your waist
Back when the neighborhood smelled like trash
We always thought it'd be that way
Nobody's love was meant to last
Remember what you used to say

Don't let the paint drip
Let's not mess this up together
Don't let the paint drip
Don't let the paint mix
Let's not mess this up together
Don't let the paint drip

Your tattooed foot was my type of art
Did I ever tell you that?
The subway train became my beating heart
Your room became my habitat
We didn't know it then but we were
An entire generation lost
To bumper stickered toilet seats
And streets we'd never dare to cross

Don't let the paint drip
Let's not mess this up together
Don't let the paint drip
Don't let the paint mix
Let's not mess this up together
Don't let the paint drip

It wasn't meant to be graffiti
Ah it wasn't meant to be graffiti
Ah it wasn't meant to be graffiti
Ah it wasn't meant to be graffiti
Ah it wasn't meant to be
Ah it wasn't meant to be
Ah it wasn't meant to be
Ah it wasn't meant to be graffiti
Ah it wasn't meant to be graffiti
Ah—
Track Name: Apartments
In the apartments nothing's going on
In the apartments everyone just tries to get along
When the sun is up, everybody's gone
But tonight don't come home
Keep the television on
The apartments will be up in flames
A tragic day
The apartments are burning down
The apartments are burning down
The apartments are—

Refrigerator magnets turned to dust
All the books you say you'd read burnt up in the dirt
The clock ticks won't stop until the clock is burnt
While all the blood-shot tenants wait
For their six eleven trains
The apartments will be up in flames
A tragic day
The apartments are burning down
The apartments are burning down
The apartments are—
Track Name: Strangers
I spilled your drink on the ground
the music's getting too loud
And I'd rather just be home right now
(just be home right now)

Cigarette smoke on your clothes
I wish I knew you cause
I've got a feeling we'd be close if I did
(be close if I did)

Tomorrow we can forget
Tomorrow we can forget
But for now let's pretend
We won't be strangers when this ends
(pretend we won't be strangers when this ends)

Just ramble into my ear
It doesn't matter at all what you say
I wanna hear your voice
(just wanna hear your voice)

Don't let me fall down the stairs
Hold on like you kind of care about me
And we're in love a bit
We're in love a little bit

Tomorrow we can forget
Tomorrow we can forget
But for now let's pretend
We won't be strangers when this ends
(pretend we won't be strangers when this ends)
Track Name: Six Forty
Built it up then knocked it down
Watched her walk out the door and then dropped to the ground
A kiss and a shrug
Is that what you meant by love?

Nights like these feel so long
when you switch the lights off, just to turn them back on
A cord to unplug
Is that what you meant by love?

She wasn't wrong about me
She wasn't wrong
The morning's far away but
I can't sleep if she's gone

Loud songs fix broken hearts
Private thoughts become facts when you speak just to talk
Words yelled from above
Is that what you meant by love?

She wasn't wrong about me
She wasn't wrong
The morning's far away but
I can't sleep if she's gone
Track Name: Martha
Martha, Martha
Why don't you ever call
It gets so lonely
Laughing into walls I can't break
Here I just know strangers
Who call me the wrong name
Who say they love me
But feel no sense of shame locking me up

You used to say the world was infinite for us
That time was meaningless
But now I'm swimming in a fishbowl

Stop the knocking on the glass
Tell them Martha tell them fast

Flashing cameras
Fill my days with light
She sounded like you and
I dreamt through the whole night I was back home
And applaud me, applaud me
I'll still feel so ashamed
Time is drowning me
I guess it's all the same without you here
Track Name: Apartments (Reprise)
In the apartments nothing's going on
In the apartments everyone just tries to get along
When the sun is up, everybody's gone
But tonight don't come home
Keep the television on
The apartments will be up in flames
A tragic day

The apartments are burning down
The apartments are burning down
The apartments are burning down
The apartments are burning down
