"Set Phasers To Stun" as written by Matthew A. Rubano, Frederick Paul Mascherino, Adam Burbank Lazzara, Mark O'connell and Edward Reyes....
Say yes, say yes, say yes, say yes
(Say yes, say yes, say yes, say)
I'm sorry it took me so long
I'm sorry it took me so long to come around
I'm sorry it took me so long to come around

Your famous last words started
Once your fingers hit the snooze
"Just nine more minutes please
They all know where to find me"

Every word that I said, what a big mistake
And the ones you left out are keeping me awake
Well, I will never make another promise without you
I won't ever make another promise with you in mind

So pace the stairs to your apartment
Like that's where you want to be (Where you want to be)
That's where you want to be (Where you want to be)

I'm sorry it took me so long
I'm sorry it took me so long (To come around)
I'm sorry it took me so long (To come around)

Well there's a secret I've been perfecting
I swore I wouldn't but you let me
I'm comfortably confused (And you)
You've gotten so removed
You know I, I could take the place of those pills
Ocean blue, paint it white
Now who you gonna call tonight?
Well I will never make another promise (Without you)
I will never make another promise (With you in mind)

So pace the stairs to your apartment
Like that's where you want to be (Where you want to be)
That's where you want to be (Where you want to be)

So pace the stairs to your apartment
Like that's where you want to be (Where you want to be)
That's where you want to be (Where you want to be)

Oh, we paint our sins on the ceiling
I keep them glued to my chest
It keeps me close like a promise kept
(Say yes, say yes, say yes, say yes)

If I talk in my sleep, will you just keep trying? (we paint our sins on the ceiling)
I might give it up if you just keep trying (well I keep them glued to my chest)
If I talk in my sleep, if I talk in my sleep, it's gone (it keeps me close like a promise kept)
Say yes, say yes, say yes, say yes
I'm sorry it took me so long
Say yes, say yes, say yes, say yes
I'm sorry it took me so long

So pace the (I don't want to stop, I just want to know)
Stairs to your apartment (I'm sorry it took me so long)
Like that's where you want to be (I don't want to stop, I just want to know)
Where you want to be
Where you want to be
(Where you want to be at)

    General Commenthere's the end:

    we'll paint our sins on the ceiling
    i'll keep them glued to my chest
    it keeps me close like a promise kept
    say yes, say yes, say yes, say yes


    if i talk in my sleep it'll just keep trying
    i'm not giving up if you just keep trying
    if i talk in my sleep, if i talk in my sleep
    (we'll paint our sins on the ceiling
    i'll keep them glued to my chest
    it keeps me close like a promise kept
    say yes, say yes, say yes, say yes)

    i'm sorry it took me so long
    (say yes, say yes, say yes, say yes)
    i'm sorry it took me so long

    i can't really make out the chorus aside from 'where you want to be'

    General CommentAhhh... the new album is a bit of a disappointment compared to TAYF but I guess you just have to move on. Much better live than on CD, I feel.

    General Commentdont compare it to TAYF then. i know it's hard not to, but if you compare it to TAYF then you will ruin the cd for yourself. i mean you would ruin every cd if you compared it to TAYF. nothing comes close.
