Track Name: Landspeedrecord! - Visiting Hours
VISITING HOURS

Visiting hours are over so I guess we'll have to leave you now,
but could you real quick do me a favor
and check back in your hospital room?
Because I think that I left something there,
like my wallet or my ID or my childhood or my will to care.

Regret seems pointless now.
Regret is pointless.
How could you have wound up there?

It looked like a Comfort Inn but really was a prison to make sure you didn't win.
Did you really think that you'd be understood?
I don't think that anybody could.

How could you have wound up there?
It looked like a Comfort Inn but it really was a prison to make sure that you didn't win.

Visiting hours are over so I guess you'll have to go it alone
and stare the inspirational posters or wait in the lobby by the silent pay phone,
because I think that you left something there
like your sanity or your car keys or your childhood or your will to care.

Regret seems pointless now.
Regret is pointless.
How could you have wound up there?

It looked like a Comfort Inn but really was a prison to make sure you didn't win.

Track Name: Landspeedrecord! - Method Acting
METHOD ACTING (WRESTLING GARFIELD)

The geiger counter
The litmus paper
The seismograph
Before the earthquake

The air lock
The EEG
The hair trigger
Of the twelve gauge

Step into the dressing room
Where you rehearse your lines for a conversation that never happens.

I wish you’d spend more time in the present here.
Can’t wait out that long.
Can’t wait forever here.
(genuine's not real enough, fake is more appealing)

That’s the hard way of doing it - and it seemed so simple
Can’t hold out that long - but you're gonna have to wait anyway
Time weighs everything - stand your ground in vain.
Can’t hold out that long - let go or wait in vain.

The quick jab
The insult
The sour note
Before the end comes.

The giant space
Inbetween
The actress
And her own tongue.

I wish you’d spend more time in the present here.
Can’t wait out that long.
Can’t wait forever here.
(genuine's not real enough, fake is more appealing)

That’s the hard way of doing it - and it seemed so simple
Can’t hold out that long - but you're gonna have to wait anyway
Time weighs everything - stand your ground in vain.
Can’t hold out that long - let go or wait in vain.

Track Name: Landspeedrecord! - Best Revenge
THE BEST REVENGE

It's the wrapping on the floor.
After all the gifts are opened
that's what you ignore.
How could you resist all the bright colors?

It's the tilting at windmills part.
I saw it in your eyes and it scared me from the start.
How could you resist all the bright colors?
The best revenge is to pick myself back up again.

How does it feel to be the one
who switches channels in the middle of a transmission?
How does it feel to be the one
who loses interest in the middle of a conversation?
It wasn't rude but it was careless
to waste those five years
with your boredom and your tears

and the clank clank clank of your machinery
stamping out domes of happy snow globe scenery.
I believe the best revenge is to pick myself back up again.

It's the clothing on the floor.
After all the sex is over
that's what you ignore.
How could you resist all the bright colors?
The best revenge is to pick myself back up again.

How does it feel to be the one
who switches channels in the middle of a transmission?
How does it feel to be the one
who loses interest in the middle of a conversation?
It wasn't rude but it was careless
to waste those five years
with your boredom and your tears

and the clank clank clank of your machinery
stamping out domes of happy snow globe scenery.
I believe the best revenge is to pick myself back up again.
Track Name: Landspeedrecord! - Secret to Win
You don't have to come clean I don't care about your secret to win.
You don't have to feel bad because I was your willing victim.

But now you're not sure it's what you want.
It's only a taste, it's only the start.
It's only a taste, it's only the start.
It's only a taste, it's only the start.
It's only a taste, it's only the start.

Find yourself another place to hide.
Why should you leave your house when you can stay inside?
I beleive it when you told me you were too upset to try,
well I was too much of a little bitch to
pry the secret to win from your shaky hands
take it back again to your own personal amusement park in my head.

It's only a taste, it's only the start.
It's only a taste, it's only the start.
It's only a taste, it's only the start.
It's only a taste, it's only a

pry the secret to win from your shaky hands
take it back again to your own personal amusement park in my head.
Track Name: Landspeedrecord! - Neophobes
NEOPHOBES

Fuck all you neophobes you’re living in the past
Imitating bands that died off fifteen years or more ago.
Fuck all you neophobes you’re living in the past
Stuck in a high school dream that never changes course at all.

Another wasted year
Another wasted life.
Now… you’re running out into the fields of Cain.

Fuck all you neophobes you keep reliving the same old song
So afraid to do something new because someone just might laugh at you.
Fuck all you neophobes the present is moving too damn fast
You insist on standing still. If I can’t move you then the future will.

Another wasted year
Another wasted life.
Now… you’re running out into the fields of cane.
