Paperweight 03:18
All the memories, all of the times, and All the pictures we laughed and smiled in Well, it seems they were all just a lie Don't spray another poisoned word at me Lookin' back, it was not surprisin' Even if I had not surmised it Nevertheless, I'm gonna survive You've played your final toyin' game with me You know that shot of our hot sunrise in Japan? I burned the photo But the frame will make a damn fine paperweight I'm gonna trash the thoughts and break away Peel the scab and wash the stain away Go dancin' all the pain away I'm gonna dance it all away I hope you find some guy who can stand ya And that you purchase a nice new camera And when he sees through your decorative plan He'll tear that thing apart, and watch you fade They'll ostracize and brand ya No hook will ever care to land ya And I'll be jitterbuggin', drink in hand 'Cos buried snapshots are your only trace You know that picture of us dining in Scotland? I hurled the photo But the frame will make a damn fine paperweight You know that shot of us streaking in Amsterdam? I kept the photo Plus the frame will make a damn fine paperweight

Flylashes 03:06
As I hold ubiquitous eyes On my dominion's life O' why should I feel lonely tonight? I've found I haven't spotted you 'round Does something keep you bound? This crown I'd gladly trade for your shroud You fly through my mind Escaping over again and over again A fly in your eyes You snare me over again and over again In this dormiveglian mist I feel your fingertips Our syzygy begins with your lips My guard has been dismissed to the dark I'm at your beck and call I'd give all mine for your dominion A fly in your eyes You'll snare me over again and over again The stars in your eyes I'll steal them over again and over again 'Til death

The Heist 02:28
Hey, somebody tell me how this all went wrong Well, somebody lost their focus and tripped the alarm (Ohh! I'm hit!) Who called the cops? Where did they come from? (Ohh! I'm hit!) No time to run; it's either them or us Hands down, they're not takin' us alive Put your hands down They're not takin' us alive tonight Hey, somebody want to check if the coast is clear? Well, I would, but sending you is a much better idea (No! That's it!) I call the shots! I'm in charge here! (No! That's it!) Then be my guests; I won't shed a tear (Whaddaya think? Should we bail?) (Hell yeah; let's get the f(woop!)k outta here) Hands down, they're not takin' me alive
