"Bread And Coffee" as written by and Daniel John/von Bohlen Didier....
Drown yourself in bread and coffee
Fast forward right through the news
We spend weeks just window shopping
What else can we really do?
We could be anybody

Every time you take the water
We are too afraid to smile
Our faces turn transparent paper glass after a while
We see everybody

It's a long distraction between our satisfactions
Any good time should be just rolling by
Now the bees are indicators
Maybe we should go outside.
A fire drill keeps humming
There are floods that change the tide
There's one day for everybody

We are pairs of apple lions
Starved for clothes that we could wear
Long strings of double lookers
Easy listeners everywhere
We could be anybody

It's a long distraction between our satisfactions
Any good time should be just rolling by
We keep a graveyard of ships sunk in glass
The silverware is buried out back
It's a long distraction between our better actions
Any good time should be just rolling by

    General Commentyeah i read some article in Spin, that they were tired of being classified "emo". so they decided to change their sound a lot. i don't understand why but they said it just wasn't the sound they wanted or something.

    General CommentI always thought the lyric went "we are pairs of apheleon" and just pronounced incorrectly. Didn't Davey also get a case of brain cancer between this album and the last as well? That sort of thing could go a long way towards changing their sound from silly pop songs that use the same 4-chord progression across an entire album to this. But does anybody have any idea what this dude is ever talking about?
