THE APOLOGISTS: "We've got enough bones to pick to fill a museum / We're strung with crutches & casts / We've got enough bones to pick to fill a museum / We're strung with crutches & casts / And they're all hand-made / And they're all hand-made / And they're all hand-made // While you've been spending your time / Getting comfortable in your own skin / Everything else has been moving and changing / Oh, time well spent, oh time well spent! / Oh, time well spent, oh time well spent! / Oh, time well spent, oh time well spent! // "How do we live once we've discovered death?" / "How do we live once we've discovered death?" / "But how do we live once we've discovered death?" / It's OK we'll daisy-chain these nights together / Until we've made a life, until we've made a life / Until we've made a life, until we've made a life / Until we've made a life, until we've made a life // While you've been spending your time / Getting comfortable in your own skin / Everything else has been moving and changing / Oh, time well spent, oh time well spent! / Oh, time well spent, oh time well spent! / Oh, time well spent, oh time well spent! / Oh, time well spent, oh time well spent! / Oh, time well spent, oh time well spent! / Oh, time well spent, oh time well spent! / Oh, time well spent, oh time well spent!"

AUTOMATICA: "I am afraid / And living all the same / Help I'm only breathing myself in / I'm breathing in // If you gave me some Theophorin / I'd hide it under my tongue for later / It always happens this way / I stop making sense to me // Look at all our feelings! / We've muddled them up and now we'll claw them out / You've got to watch as we claw them out / We're clawing out // If you gave me some Theophorin / I'd hide it under my tongue for later / It always happens this way / I stop making sense to me // Animals just know better than us / Snap-Instinctual Reaction must be better than this / Than this // If you gave me some Theophorin / I'd hide it under my tongue for later / It always happens this way / I stop making sense to me / To me / If you gave me some Theophorin / I'd hide it under my tongue for later / It always happens this way / I stop making sense to me / To me."
