Track Name: Little Miss Sunshine
i watched you dance toward the light
i saw you peer into the sky
well i just couldn't take my mind off you
this time

you could show me what you like
and you could let me come inside
and we could watch a dvd or something
tonight

you should feel good
everyday you should
'cause i just love to see you smile or something
all the time

i can't even look you in the eye
sometimes i wish my feelings would subside
'cause i just think we're too young or something
sometimes

but you should feel good
everyday you should
'cause i just love to hear you laugh or something
all the time

i watched you dance toward the light
i saw you peer into the sky
well i just couldn't take my mind off you
this time
Track Name: Interior Design
orange coolers
and yellow carpets
these are a few things
that i'm gonna miss
the backyard's empty
like it always has been.

i don't want to go
i'm not gonna go
i don't want to go
i'm not gonna go

yellow and blue
like the kitchen and the family room
old pictures
smiling at me
this house is full
of our memory

i don't want to go
i'm not gonna go
i don't want to go
i'm not gonna go

the rainbows are dying
our colours are flying
everywhere
but here.
so it's time to move
it's time to split up
me and you
me and you

i don't want to go
i'm not gonna go
Track Name: The Fall of the Emperor
Walking from the starbucks
to my place of work
Sometimes I see Peto,
Yeah; he's a bird.
So I will read my Dr. Seuss
and I will make a tighter noose for you.
For you.

'Cause it's not what I do,
I won't live and breathe for you.
It's not what I am,
You are just a man without a body.

So I'll conjure up a plan
and I'll turn you into sand
and I'll send you on a tour
So you can finally explore
Everything but me,
I'm tired of doubting what I see.

'Cause it's not what I do,
I won't live and breathe for you.
It's not what I am,
You are just a man without a body.

So I'll conjure up a plan
and I'll turn you into sand
Just let me go; you're free now baby.
I can just be me.

I'll sit in a white room
where magnolias can bloom
Just let me go; you're free now baby.
I can just be me.

'Cause it's not what I do,
I won't live and breathe for you.
It's not what I am,
You are just a man without a body.

So the emperor, he roams
Through mountains, even snow
He's looking for a body
'Cause he finally let me go.
Track Name: Super Kid
Stella got a part in the play
Her teacher gave her a letter
She brought it home to her mom that day
and she said, "Mom! Mom! What does it say?"

It says you're gonna be a star
No matter who you are
Let's get you some ice cream
In daddy's magic car

Jimmy thought that there were monsters under his bed
So he went to tell his parents
"Monsters! Monsters!," he said.
So his dad went in, came out, and told him,
"Don't worry son, I killed them! They're dead!"

Now Jimmy wants to be a killer
and fight off all the monsters
Jimmy wants to be a hero
Or maybe just a doctor

What's it like to be curious and free?
Oh no; I can't remember
My youth is leaving me...

But I could be good at following
Like Hariet the Spy
Let's re-learn how to read
Oh, could you teach us to tell time?

I miss eating play-doh
and pretending that I'm super
I miss holding hands
and building castles in the sand

What's it like to be curious and free?
Oh no; I can't remember
My youth is leaving me...

I miss playing power rangers
and fighting about who is who
Learning not to speak to strangers
and don't feed your friends the glue

What's it like to be curious and free?
Oh no; I can't remember
My youth is leaving me...
but let's not get all sentimental
Like the people on Full House
yeah, this grown up stuff is mental
but maybe that's what life's about
but I could be good at staying young
I could be good at staying young
I could be good at staying young,
like Bart and Lisa Simpson.
Track Name: Wasted Art
You're on the road again
You're taking drugs again
Take it slow
'Cause you never know.

What happened to your brilliant mind?
Don't take a chance, you waste your time.
You had it all; you're such a mess
And we we're always such good friends.

So you rock and roll again?
You play guitar again?
You fake it all my friend
And you never called, again.

A party girl; she's on your mind
Now here's your chance; don't take your time
She wants it all, just give it to her.
After all, she's just a girl.

You've got it all worked out
You get her a drink
You don't stop to think
Her skin is so soft
and you can't stop
She's calling your name
but it's not the same
It's never the same
It's never the same
It's never the same.

It's never the same.

What happened to your brilliant mind?
Don't take a chance, you waste your time.
You had it all; you're such a mess
And we we're always such good friends.
Track Name: The Return
The forbidden forest,
They plugged it in.
Now they control you
and all of your friends.

You'll feel the pulse;
Feel it begin,
but you won't notice
'til the end.

Drove all night into his sky;
What you looking for?
It gets dark, and you see ghosts!
What were you looking for?

He says;
"You're paranoid.
I don't know you well,
but don't you worry;
I can tell.
Come with me,
Come be free!
I'll be your ruler
if you'll let me!"

And into the sun
We all got lost
Seperate from all of our flaws

Trees were blue
The sky was green
We played the games
on super teams.

Light it up,
and don't you stop...
It's gonna be a good one!
Brain functions
are getting lost...
Oh, isn't it a good one?!

He says;
"You're paranoid.
I don't know you well,
but don't you worry;
I can tell.
Come with me!
Come be free!
I'll be your ruler
if you'll let me...".
Track Name: Blue
Late night coming home
from wherever I go
decisions tamper with
what I thought I'd know
If I slowly count to ten
would you still be here
Trying to let me in?
I'm always right behind you
still you don't know half the shit I've been through

so I talked to you from inside of the walls
and I told you about all my flaws
and I closed my eyes yeah,
I got really high
and I thought about all the useless time

my room is full of you
it's all blue
and I'm slowly catching up
I just might give a fuck
my room is full of blue
it's all you
and I'm slowly catching up
I just might give a fuck

so I talked to you from inside of the walls
and I told you about all my flaws
and I closed my eyes yeah,
I got really high
and I thought about all the useless time
Track Name: The Colours! They Consume Me...
Every time I close my eyes, I get scared sometimes;
'Cause sometimes what I see, it's not real sometimes,
and somethings that I want are fucked up,
and somethings that turn me on are fucked up.

So what do I do when my mind's possessed with grey?
I just want my bright side to radiate.

I've gotta fight this.
Do you think I like it?
No, I don't like this.
Do you think I like it?
Do you think I like it?!

What do I do when my mind's possessed with grey?
I just want my bright side to radiate.

Sometimes I like it.
Do you hate me?
Do you hate it?
'Cause I didn't make it.
I did not create this.
It's something inside of me!

What do I do when my mind's possessed with grey?
I just want my bright side to radiate;
Oh what do I do?
Black and red and blue and grey!
I just want my bright side to radiate;

oh yellow! oh yellow! oh yellow!
oh yellow...

Wooden house
I'm smiling now
I'm by myself
oh yellow.

oh yellow.
oh yellow.
