This house is sold
Grab your forty grand
Turn your face to steel
Slowly leave the hall
You may not return
No more lessons

Rethink this case
Was it worth the try?
All the summers passed
Memberships apply
So here comes your time
Happiness required

It's more or less the other way
It's more or less the other way
It's more or less the other way
It's more or less the other way
It's more or less the other way
It's more or less the other way
It's more or less the other way

This job is almost over
This job is almost over
This job is almost over
This job is almost over
This job is almost over

Rethink this case

    General Comment:I downloaded this song as a Death Cab for Cutie song only to realize two weeks later that it was done by this band. Great song nonetheless.
