Pulling back the shades to see
 morning comes so quickly
 oh ten o’clock we reunite 
 guess we pulled an all-nighter last night Pulling on this cigarette
 it’s rolled so tight 
 I cannot get 
the breath I need my one regret
 my day is feeling like this cigarette Something’s coming
 hold it there just a little bit longer 
something’s coming through
 something’s coming 
hold it there just a little bit longer 
 it will come to you 
s-t-a-t-i-c static Pulling teeth out one by one 
we’re still getting nothing done 
we’ve made our peace, the time will come 
but we’re still pulling teeth out one by one Something’s coming
 hold it there just a little bit longer
 something’s coming through
 something’s coming
 hold it there just a little bit longer  
it will come to you 
s-t-a-t-i-c static The receiver’s insufficient 
 and the speaker’s problematic 
the signal’s getting weaker and I’m thinking we can do without it
 oh baby, 
I’m afraid we may have caught the static s-t-a-t-i-c static I see a sea it’s a sea of static

The Punisher 03:52
Sticks and stones break my bones
 but words could kill me
 I’m trying, trying not to lose my head 
it feels like a punch in the face 
the things your saying 
you got to find another form of ventilation I know that it’s not me you are after 
I know your chest is burdened with a heavy load 
but I can’t be the matador
 when you are raging
 you’ve got to find another form of recreation

 You are the punisher
 you are the punisher 
just cause you’re the punisher
 doesn’t mean you should punish me Cross my heart, swear I’ll die 
if you won’t hear me
 I’m trying, trying just to sympathize 
day after day we have the same conversation
 I’m not accustomed to this form of desperation 
I’m not accustomed to this form of desperation You are the punisher
 you are the punisher
 why are you punishing me
