That's you.

Paints the world | with her magic wand

Please don't sing that song.

"Molly Smiles. | He opened the show with it.

For me

And then he | and my mom died.

Listen, I didn't mean to...

Okay. Yeah.

So what's next?

How about dessert?

Am I gonna be able | to pronounce it?

I don't know.

Can you say...Pez"?

I'm just not supposed | to act impulsively, you know?

Part of my whole sobriety thing.

Made a vow, | haven't broken it yet.


I haven't had a drink | in 224 days.

I'm also not supposed to have | romantic relationships my first year.


It's called | the Law of Contrary Behavior.

If I want a drink, | I don't have one.

If I want to skip a gig, | I force myself to go.

If I meet a girl | and I want her to come over...

...I send her home.


Those are vows | I haven't broken.

Ships crossing like ghosts | in the night

Night names, | unremembered faces in sight

Took what we can | in need to survive

Oh, my God, I love it!

It's the most | lyrically advanced thing I've done.

No, purple means | rock 'n' roll royalty,

and it picks up | the highlights in your eyes.

You're too hot for those | earth tones you've been wearing.

What about the song? | Is it too fast, too slow, what?

It's kind of like the same thing | over and over again.

Is there, like, a hook | or a good chorus or something?

A hook? | - Yeah.

I don't do hooks. | - Okay.

I'm not a sell-out. I don't | wear purple and I don't do hooks.

I said okay, okay?

Names... names unremembered, | faces in sight

Molly, I thought you were dead.

Neal's in the other room. | - That guy is still there?

You always do this. | When are you gonna grow up?

He's never going to leave.

All he does is mope | and play these loser songs.

Help me, please.

I don't know how to get rid of this guy | without breaking his heart.
