"False Alarm" as written by and Ira David Kaplan Georgia Mia Hubley....
Oh no, I think I'm falling for a false alarm
Like an all-day sucker stuck until you crush the right arm
Well I could open my eyes, I could just pay attention to McNew
Well I just held back back back to listen to your cues
So it's not enough I never meant to hold you down
Waiting for the firestorm, waiting for the false alarm

Well is it really true? Well, I know, I mean I guess, uh, why not?
Well is it really true? I don't know -- too hard to figure out
I'm gonna mark my words, cross my eyes and stomp my feet
'Cause I don't want you feeling bad, feeling bad, feeling worse than you do
Well I'll stand my ground, hide behind a fake smile
Maybe I'll talk about something else just for a little while

Aw, said it once, said it twice, said it...
You can tell it's the same old tune
Straight down to the bitter end
Tell me when there's more to go there soon
It's gonna hold my tongue in place, think about what to do
If you don't see nothing wrong this time, well I'm taking it out on you
