TEACH ME TO FORGET I need to break free from a memory Make it two No three is all I need I've got to leave this penitentiary Because it's killing me It's killing me I've been strung out since the turn of the century But regretably it's all clear to me Still clear to me So teach me to forget You're never tortured by regrets And teach me to forget Because baby you're so god at it Please teach me to forget Because I've got nothing but regrets And teach me to forget Don't hesitate Just press reset I want to block a certain memory That of you and me And your blunt superiority A teacher of the elementary God how that gets to me But maybe you never knew? Because you're a professional forgetter too It's what you choose to do To avoid accountability So teach me to forget You're never tortured by regrets And teach me to forget Because baby you're so god at it Please teach me to forget Because I've got nothing but regrets And teach me to forget Don't hesitate Just press reset Please teach me to forget Because I've got nothing but regrets And teach me to forget Because baby you're so god at it Now teach me to forget You're never tortured by regrets And teach me to forget Embarrassments and moral depts

Just So 03:39
JUST SO If we’re still here tomorrow Let’s do that youthful thing And go down as sinners Cause we would never shop for wedding rings Let’s pretend a future Like lovers do Let’s pretend what’s out there Is different from the world we know Cause it could be just so Just so If we’re still here tomorrow Let’s do that youthful thing Let’s make it just so Forget the mess we’re in Pretend a future Pretend a home Decide that what’s out there Will be different from the world we know Just so

YOU’RE NOT IN LOVE Before the break of day Before the lingerie Before the resume Before you back away That’s all I need That’s all I need You’re not in love That’s all I need Not gonna plead You’re not in love Before the break of day I watch the shadow play The dance across your face Your hair The pillowcase That’s all I need That’s all I need You’re not in love That’s all I need Not gonna plead You’re not in love

WE GOT GAME There's a choice To be made We never used to blindly disobey Make some noise Never fade Retrace the steps of millions before us What is fair to get ahead? It's not an even game if you can't bid They don't care Never did If we want it we will have to take it from the overfed We got game And we were put to shame Acting kind So we came to speak our minds And what else What else What else could we do? Jumpcut Horses Riots You keep talking middle ground So sick of hearing about that middle ground That is it You can't go 'round There's just no other middle to be found Like with this bunch of racist loons The kind of guy you wouldn't like to spoon If in power One whisky sour And everyone I love would be jailed within the hour So... We got game And we were put to shame Acting kind So we have changed our minds And now what? Now what? Now what will they do? Jumpcut Horses Riots Is it true? Laser beam Swat team Not a dream I believe Paris Grey Singing "the sun will chase the clouds away" I believe what they say Because I want and have to believe that way Is it true? Paycuts Gunshots Riots Yes it's true Mind you It's true

SWEDISH GUNS What's that in the air? The Swedish guns And what's that right there? That's Swedish guns Let's have a second look It's Swedish guns Must be by the book It's Swedish guns And guess what came to town The Swedish guns And guess what burned it down The Swedish guns And every life they took With Swedish guns Now everywhere you look It's Swedish guns When you want something done When you want something done Just take me by the hand We'll make them understand If you want something done Get Swedish guns Take care of someone Get Swedish guns You need a helping hand Get Swedish guns Secure a piece of land Get Swedish guns They should turn around The Swedish guns And force us to the ground With Swedish guns Cause who can be to blame For Swedish guns A clue it's in the name A diabolic shame When you want something done When you want something done Just take me by the hand We'll make them understand
