"All the Time Every Day" as written by and Will Sheff....
Do you stop and stare, struck down as shaken, washed
I was constantly panicking, wishing for what's lost
As I'm standing on some card, waiting to cross
But you say the fear like some weak leaf, when turned and tossed

All the time, every day, every day, all the time, all the time
Every day, every day

As the streets sell by the seats inside your car
Does each face have some collide against your heart
As you watch the blaze and fade it into the joy
Do you wanna scream the choice, so pleased with whom they are

Every day, all the time, all the time, every day, every day
All the time, every day

With that proper round, oh, that sweet and tender pain
Do you think how there'll come a time when you'll never fear again?
Do you try to make it right by thinking that if someone else feels it
It's real and it will go away? Do you?

Do you fall short of all that's in your heart?
When your friends think you should be put up you instead take a pause
Do you watch the world get cold and crushed and small?
And when you could do so much you do fuck off?

All the time, every day, every day, all the time, all the time
Every day, every day

I hate, and consuming all this and agreeing it's true
Is it hard each time just to feel something new?
For these so, so rich not to feel anymore
While we both make our way through the dark
No questions, any day, all the way, every time
Any day, any time, all the way

Said when you break erase the town
When you forget the bed, I'm in town
I do the same, don't be ashamed, I'm the same
Yeah, I'm that way
But I try every day and all the time

    General CommentI went to edit the lyrics and found that they have to be approved by the "licensor", which I guess is LyricFind. But LyricFind's lyrics are, frankly, "incredibly wrong", like kkaleds said. I submitted a correction, but considering that three other people did before me, I don't think it will go through. So even though christinemunn did a wonderful, near-perfect job of transcribing, I guess I'll just post the lyrics from the booklet here. These are them as they are in the booklet, with two very slight additions where extra lyrics are sung (but I left in the extra stuff in the last answer, because it's cool and should have been sung!)...except for one spot that I inserted a "you" that was obviously mistakenly missing from the print. There are also a couple words italicized for emphasis (along with all the "A:" answers), so I guess I'll put asterisks around those, since this is just a comment.



    Q: Do you stop and stare, struck dumb, hands shaking, washed by this constant panicked wishing for what's lost? As you're standing on some curb, waiting to cross, would you say you feel like some weak leaf, wind-turned and tossed?

    A: All the time. Every day. Every day, all the time. All the time. Every day, every day.

    Q: As the streets sail by the seats inside your car, does each face outside collide against your heart? As you watch them blaze, or fade into the dark, do you want to scream that you're so pleased with who they are?

    A: Every day, all the time. All the time, every day. Every day. All the time. Every day.

    Q: When that moment arrives (oh, that sweet and tender pain...) do you think how there will come a time when you'll never feel it again? Do you try to make it right by thinking that if someone *else* feels it, it's real, and it won't go away? Do you?

    A: ...

    Q: Do you fall so short of all that's in your heart when your friends, that you should pull up, you instead pick apart? Do you watch the world get cold, and crushed, and small? And when you could do so much, do you do fuck-all?

    A: All the time. Every day, every day. All the time, all the time, every day, every day.

    Q: And, considering all this, and agreeing that it's true, is it harder each time just to feel something new? But do you sometimes wish *not* to feel anymore? To wall it off? To make it all go away? To just put it to an end?

    A: No question. Any day. All the way, every time. Any day. Any time. All the way, all the day and all the night. All the way every time. All the pain, every day all the same...

    Q: When you pray for grace to come, were you born yesterday? Are you dumb?? Are you insane??? Don't be ashamed; I'm the same. Yeah, I'm that way. But I try, every day and all the time.

    General Commenti think these are the correct lyrics - from what i can gather. they're far closer than the ones posted above.

    Do you stop and stare, struck down as shaken, washed
    By this constant, panicked wishing for what's lost
    As you're standing on some curb waiting to cross
    Would you say you feel like some weak leaf wind-turned and tossed?

    All the time, every day, every day, all the time, all the time
    Every day, every day

    As the streets sail by the seats inside your car
    Does each face outside collide against your heart
    As you watch the blaze and fade it into the dark
    Do you wanna scream that you're so pleased with who they are

    Every day, all the time, all the time, every day, every day
    All the time, every day

    When that moment arrives, oh that sweet and tender pain
Do you think how there'll come a time when you'll never feel it again?
    Do you try to make it right by thinking that if someone else feels it
    It's real and it won't go away? Do you?

    Do you fall so short of all that's in your heart?
    When your friends who you should put up, you instead pick apart?
    Do you watch the world get cold and crushed and small?
    And when you could do so much you do fuck all?

    All the time, every day, every day, all the time, all the time
    Every day, every day

    And considering all this and agreeing that it's true
    Is it hard each time just to feel something new?
    But do you sometimes wish not to feel anymore?
    Wall it off? Make it all go away?
    Just put it to an end, no question
    Any day, all the way, every time, any day, any time, all the way

    And I say when you pray for grace to come
    Were you born yesterday, are you dumb? Are you insane?
    Don't be ashamed, I'm the same
Yeah, I'm that way
    But I try
    Every day
    And all the time
