"Kilojoules" as written by and Judah Dadone....
Well I've been making
Some cold calculations
Regarding our body heat
It's not easy
Believe me

You liken me to a vampire
My left hand was wearing
Fake plastic teeth
All winter
And taking you for all you were worth

Well I'm afraid I'm not qualified
To do any of these things for you
Well I'm afraid I'm not gonna
Give you back any of those kilojoules
The late nights and weekends
Our hearts only run slowly
On the local track
So I've arranged for your
Phobias to be performed by a string quartet

You shoot me one of those glances
I need to interpret
I've been feeling
Well rested, and healthy

Well I'm afraid I'm not qualified
To do any of these things for you
And I'm afraid I'm not gonna
Give you back any of those kilojoules
The late nights and weekends
Our hearts only go so slowly
On a local track
So I've arranged for your
Phobias to be performed by a string quartet

    My InterpretationSince the album is about a guy in love with a ghost, I feel like this is about how it'll be hard for them to be with each other.
    "Well I've been making
    Some cold calculations
    Regarding our body heat
    It's not easy --
    Believe me"

    And then how he's "not qualified".
