"Cough Coughing" as written by Justin Andrew Harris, Daniel Frederic Seim and Brent Knopf....
Force yourself to breathe
My hand is in the air
To stop the cough;

Redirect your sleeves
Spittle leaves the sphere
Can't wash off;

Kiss me kiss me please
I washed behind my ears
The lights are off;

Be careful who you tease
There's an easy chair
On the chopping block;

Careful who you tease

    General CommentI don't think the first few lines are right...
    it's:
    my hand is ONLY THERE
    and
    redirect your SNEEZE
    and
    THE spittle leaves a SMEAR
    and
    I can't wash off

    and I think its I'll wash behind my ears...
    but other than that yeah.
    great great song

    General Commentthis one seems to be giving a short narrative to do with his feelings toward a girl (presumably) for whom he has feelings, or with whom there's some sort of something going on, so he's telling her to kiss him because he's clean (translation: it's safe) - but he's also telling her to be careful (easy chair on the chopping block - easy not to realize you're in a danger zone - careful who you tease!) and to keep her distance (redirect your sneeze, etc. - he's trying to minimize contact.)

    i like how succintly they manage to convey all this stuff. it's great, perfect opening track to the album
