"Night of the Pencils" as written by and Joseph Prendergast....
When you feel hollow
what do you do
glue yourself together
or stick me to you
Mavis told the truth
I'm the one for you
Mavis told the truth
I'm the one for you

I wore 3D glasses
It was clear to see
when i took them off
I prefered life in 2D
Mavis told the truth
I'm the one for you

Lets spend the rest of summer stoned
and we'll wake up for the winter
Without a memory of the sun
And there'll be nothing to moan about
I dreamt a life where you were gone
In a jumble sale of memories
You wore a sign around your neck
And it read not for sale today

We're bigger than Memphis
you only exist when I want you to

You bosh those pills like they're a fucking joke
but there's a monster bubbling under your skin
Go wash your hands in a sink filled with glass
and feel the cuts laugh. HA HA HA HA

Oh fuck it, I'll try one and join the grins too
I'll trade moral for hypocracy and connect to you
from now on i'll unclip my belt
and enjoy this ride, we're off

it's such a ride
it's such a ride

we're bigger than Memphis
you only exist when I want you to

    General Commentno offence but are you deaf?

    'Lets spend the rest of summer stoned
    and we'll wake up for the winter
    Without a memory of the sun
    And there'll be nothing to moan about
    I dreamt a life where you were gone
    In a jumble sale of memories
    You wore a sign around your neck
    And it read not for sale today'

    then

    'you brush those pills like theyre a fucking joke
    but theres a monster bubbling under your skin
    Go wash your hands in a sink filled with glass
    and feel the cuts laugh. HA HA HA HA

    Oh fuck it, I'll try one and join the grins too
    i'll trade moral for hypocracy and connect to you
    from now on i'll unclip my belt and enjoy this life of our own.'

    General CommentPretty sure it's "spend the rest of summer stoned" instead of "stunned", but yeah.

    Mavis told the truth, I'm the one for you X4

    I wore 3D glasses, it was clear to see
    When i took them off, I prefered life in 2D

    Mavis told the truth, I'm the one for you X3

    AHHHHHHHHH!AHHHH!AHHHHHHHHHHHH!

    I spend the rest of summer stoned
    And awaken for the winter
    Without the memory of the sun
    And there'll be nothing to moan about
    I took the life when you were gone
    In a jumble sale of memories
    You wore a sign around your neck
    And it read not for sale today X2

    We're bigger than Memphis
    You only exist when I want you to X2

    You bought/crush some pills, I tell a fucking joke
    Forget the monster floating under your skin
    Go wash your hands in sink filled with glass
    And feel the cuts laugh - HAHAHAHA

    Oh fuck it all
    Try one, join the grins too
    I'll trade it all for hypocrits & connect to you
    From now on I'll grip my belt and enjoy this ride

    It's such a ride X4

    We're bigger than Memphis
    You only exist when I want you to X6

    General CommentYeah those lyrics sound about right, Pretty hard to decipher what hes saying.

    The only alteration I'd make is:

    You bought those pills they sell
    A fuckin joke
    But theres a monster goblin under your skin
    Go wash your hands in a sink filled with glass
    and feel the cuts laugh. HA HA HA HA

    Oh fuck it, I'll try one and join the grins to
    i'll trade for all for hypocrits to connect to you
    from now on i'll grip my belt and enjoy

    General Comment"You bosh those pills like they're a fucking joke." Listen to the 'One for the Grandparents' version.
