"Swallowing the Decibels" as written by and Anand Mathew Wilder....
Nobody makes nice and make the Earth move any one
And he's in lyin' in a shadow groove can you ask for more?

I'm just as hungry as I was before
And no one's gonna remember your name when you're gone.
Cannot find another pretty diva with a new song.
Tumor if you're lucky you could last so long
at best you've left your town.
And sure enough until your back goes out and keeps your pain(?)
I'm gonna tell you not to lay up god no

Your work is done just go out don't come here, not next door
They might not care what you were listening to last year-- now they're broke/blonde/wrong(?)

I'm just as hungry as I was before
and best reflect your tan
And sure enough until your back goes out and keeps your best(?)
I'm gonna tell you not to lay up god no
reflect your tan
And sure enough until your back goes out and keeps your best(?)
I'm gonna tell you not to lay up god no

How could I spend your past if can't pretend?
I see you still beckon on the steps on the floor
and rather lie they won't take the time to get better than/then you will
they're going home and they won't stop trying
and we're swallowing the decibels
they're going home and no they won't stop trying
and we're swallowing the decibels...

    Lyric CorrectionI'm gonna tell you not to lay up god no

    Sounds more like: I thought I told you not to let/lay your guard down

    "at best you've left your town."

    Sounds more like: At best reflect your time..

    Same goes for "and best reflect your tan"

    "they're going home and no they won't stop trying"

    Sounds more like: They're/We're going no where but we won't stop trying

    Lyric Correction"now they're broke/blonde/wrong(?)"

    Lyric CorrectionI think instead of "I'm gonna tell you not to lay up god no";

    It might be "I thought I told you not to let your guard down" ? Maybe?
