"It's Still Happening" as written by Chris Alan Vrenna, James Hamilton Leithauser and Clint Walsh....
Ã???I was screaming in my head or mouthing help me help me
Repeatedly...
All those people hanging out
While looking over my shoulder at the older, taller man saying â??no,no,no,.â??

All those people hanging out
In a place I did not recognize.
He was filling up a clear plastic box with colored candy, colored nuts...
All sold by the weight.â??
Here's where it all begins

I guess I'm stayin' here tonight
So shut the door and shut off the light
I guess I'm stayin' here tonight
It's been a long time

Ã???My first painting in class.
I'll be late
He took one to finish it, painting white on the background.
I got upset.
So don't stay up and wait

The painting didn't end up in the show, he told me later
It was because the teacher said it wasn't good at all.
We were pretending this in the lobby earlier..
But I don't play bass!

I'll come back here to you
As my grandmother pointed out 4 crocodiles
(or maybe they were alligators)â??

I guess I'm stayin' here tonight
So shut the door and shut off the light
I guess I'm stayin' here tonight
It's been a long time

All those people hanging out
So I'll be late
Don't stay up and wait

I guess I'm stayin' here tonight
So shut the door and shut off the light
I never made it home last night

It's been a long time
It's been a long time
It's been a long time

    General Commentthis song is about "the dreamer" (the character in this album) accepting that he/she is staying in the bizarre world of dreams for the night. The verses are just meaningless words that symbolize the dreams and the chorus "I guess I’m stayin’ here tonight So shut the door and shut off the light I guess I’m stayin’ here tonight It’s been a long time" is the dreamer's actual words.
