  • 02:59 Story Lyrics
    Lucky

    Have you had your energy on for long?

    Together we have the synergy of a mob

    You find my head when I didn’t lose it

    I’m done with using any excuses

    Except accepted exceptions

     

    And I’ll give to you

    A place to sleep

    A room to have

    A bed to keep

    All I want in return is what you need me to do

    I’ll paint your house

    Mend your feet

    Fill you up and make complete

    All I want in return is what you need me to do

     

    I’m very close to therapy, after all

    High enough to bury me under law

    Winning in a failed institution

    Don’t ever let them say we were included

    We expect the best when we get on

     

    And I’ll give to you

    A place to sleep

    A room to have

    A bed to keep

    All I want in return is what you need me to do

    I’ll paint your house

    Mend your feet

    Fill you up and make complete

    All I want in return is what you need me to do

     

    All I want in return is what you need me to do

    All I want in return is what you need me to do

  • 03:32 Story Lyrics
    Pick It Up

    I tried to live a dream but I wasn't waking up (I wasn't waking up)
    Tolerated real but didn't sleep enough (I didn't sleep enough)

    Don't it feel better this way
    Even in a pact to get paid
    Without feeling blue and overdue
    Kick up your feet and pick it up

    Pick It Up
    We've got to pick it up

    Time is always on our heels until it catches up
    We've got to pick it up
    These wounds will never heal until we bring them love
    We've got to pick it up
    We've got to pick it up, or go

    Don't it feel better this way
    Even in a pact to get paid
    Without feeling blue and overdue
    Kick up your feet and pick it up

    Pick It Up

  • 03:04 Story Lyrics
    Hands in My Pockets

    You've got to got to got to give me your best now
    Because I got to got to get it and can't get your best out
    I'm running on stilts in circles, casted out by your mettle

    I got to get a way to take your ah dress down (Have some, baby)
    Because I'm curious to feel how you breathe when you pass out
    From either feeling weird or lacking, tired
    Will I surrender?
    It's hard to tell

    I'm keeping the keeping up
    Piecing the peace and love
    Easily easing up
    Even while you still need serving
    Passing up nobody near enough
    To no one who even knows that we need to be in love
    Without my hands in my pockets

    Dropping a drama bomb to pick up the action (passion?crazy?)
    An opportunity presented to seize the attraction
    The needier I am need you, fear you, haunt you
    All I remember is that you're hot as hell

    I'm keeping the keeping up
    Piecing the peace and love
    Easily easing up
    Even while you still need serving
    Passing up nobody near enough
    To no one who even knows that we need to be in love
    Without my hands in my pockets

    Without my hands in my pockets

  • 04:13 Story Lyrics
    Running

    Told all the right tales like you had said them before
    Took all the right steps and never fell to the floor
    Played all the wrong takes but they were right on time
    You make your mistakes when you tire of trying

    Save yourself and never run alone again
    Save yourself when ruin is your only friend
    Save yourself and never run alone again
    Save yourself from ruin you're running

    I see you staying in style with a wink and a smile
    Keeping it all to yourself after sharing a while
    Then you put it all back and try to look for a sign
    The law is coming for you, it's just a matter of time

    There are no cures on your radio
    No doctors in your stereo
    Too many people with problems
    and some are good at playing guitar

    Save yourself and never run alone again
    Save yourself when ruin is your only friend
    Save yourself and never run alone again
    Save yourself from ruin you're running

  • 04:14 Story Lyrics
    Weight of the World

    If you tell me anything about sorrow
    Write it down, I'll read about it tomorrow
    Are we living for the end of the world?
    Give it up, it's not for you to control

    You say you miss the weight of the world
    And it's all that you want now
    It's not enough to save your soul
    When you sell it tomorrow

    Counting seconds because the minutes are vital
    Savor everything in life, it's all borrowed
    Every moment you can feel yourself dying
    I don't want to know a thing about sorrow

    Voices in your head are so misleading
    In the end, the worst is never seen

    You say you miss the weight of the world
    And it's all that you want now
    It's not enough to save your soul
    When you sell it tomorrow

    Inner Beauty

    I want to take a little holiday

    Would you kindly feed my pussy?

    Don’t know how long I’m going to be away

    Going off to seek my inner beauty

    You be my margarita meter maid

    I’ll be your Keyser Soze

    Clear out your window with a coat of paint

    All to seek what’s really, truly myth-producing

    All you find is my inner beauty

     

    (Alright! Here we go! Take off!)

     

    My little Betty, don’t you want to stay?

    Aw, it don’t matter what you want to say

    Feelin’ your drippin’ from the balcony

    Girl, you come to seek my inner beauty

    My little kitty, don’t you want to play

    No, it don’t matter what you want to say

    I hear you thinking positivity

    Come to seek what’s really, truly myth-producing

    All you find is my inner beauty

     

    Have no fear, I’m alright

    Although I’m not your type

    I’ll try with all my might

    Until I don’t treat me right

     

    No, it don’t matter what you want to say

    No, it don’t matter what you want to say

    Feelin’ your drippin’ from the balcony

    Girl, you come to seek my inner beauty

    My little kitty, don’t you want to play?

    No, it don’t matter what you want to say

    I hear you thinking positivity

    Girl, you come to see what’s really, truly myth-producing

    All you find is my inner beauty

  • 03:40 Story Lyrics
    Take Me

    I’ve never seen the look before

    Never seen you gaze so far

    I’ve never seen the look before

    Now I’ve seen it break me apart

    The moment when you close your eyes

    May it be seconds away

    I’d never seen the look before

    I’m never gonna see it away

     

    I’d never seen the look before

    I’d never seen the look before

    I’d never seen the look before

    I’d never seen the look before

    Girl, you’ve got to

    Take me as I am, lover

    Take me as I am, on fire

    Take me as I am, now

    It’s up to you if it’s time for another

     

    I’d never seen the look before

    Never seen you stand so tall

    I’d never seen the look before

    Like you’ve never seen me at all

    Erase, replace me, show your pride

    It’ll be better, baby, have some faith

    I’d never seen the look before

    Never want to see it again

     

    I’d never seen the look before

    I’d never seen the look before

    I’d never seen the look before

    I’d never seen the look before

    Girl, you’ve got to

    Take me as I am, lover

    Take me as I am, on fire

    Take me as I am, now

    It’s up to you if it’s time for another

     

    Take me as I am, lover

    Take me as I am, on fire

    Take me as I am, now

    It’s up to you if it’s time for another

    Take me as I am, lover

    Take me as I am, on fire

    Take me as I am, now

    It’s up to you if it’s time for another

    Take me as I am, lover

    Take me as I am, on fire

    Take me as I am, now

    It’s up to you if it’s time for another

  • 02:50 Story Lyrics
    Forest to Rest Stop

    I know better than to change your mind

    And I know better than to say, You’re out of your mind

    I can’t remember ever seeing you in line

    I’ll do anything to save your life while I’ve got mine

    And you’re not a headline

     

    Conquering a valley of disharmony

    From forest to rest stop

    You’re going to get shot

    Conquering a valley of disharmony

    From forest to rest stop

    You’re going to get shot or you’re going to get shot

     

    You never even seemed the type

    All day working hard to feed the grind, at night unwind

    I can’t remember ever seeing you in life

    I would do anything to save your life while I’ve got mine

    And you’re not a headline

     

    Conquering a valley of disharmony

    From forest to rest stop

    You’re going to get shot

    Conquering a valley of disharmony

    From forest to rest stop

    You’re going to get shot

    Conquering a valley of disharmony

    From forest to rest stop

    You’re going to get shot or you’re going to get shot

  • 02:46 Story Lyrics
    Collected

    Free-falling, holding on and empty-handed

    Baby, I’m bleeding bad and I can’t walk fast

    Anticipated all but no compassion

    Tomorrow will be so bad when we can’t go back

     

    If you care, I can’t tell

    So collected, you couldn’t make it any worse by crying

    We’ll see how you feel on the other side

    If you care, I can’t tell

    So collected, you couldn’t make it any worse by crying

    We’ll see how you feel on the other side

    On the other side

     

    Free-falling, holding on and empty-handed

    Baby, I’m bleeding bad and I can’t walk fast

    Retired from your lies and slow reactions

    And now that you seem so sad

    Well, we can’t go back

     

    If you care, I can’t tell

    So collected, you couldn’t make it any worse by crying

    We’ll see how you feel on the other side

    If you care, I can’t tell

    So collected, you couldn’t make it any worse by crying

    We’ll see how you feel on the other side

    If you care, I can’t tell

    So collected, you couldn’t make it any worse by crying

    We’ll see how you feel on the other side

    If you care, I can’t tell

    So collected, you couldn’t make it any worse by crying

    We’ll see how you feel on the other side

    On the other side

    On the other side

  • 03:34 Story Lyrics
    Cameras

    A camera in your face can make your heart race

    Or remove all doubt that you were born a fool

    A camera, as you bake, can watch your cupcakes

    Or document why they don’t taste so good

     

    Always an eye on you

    (Everybody’s watching)

    Always an eye on you

    You’ve never been alone before

    Always an eye on you

    (Everybody’s watching)

    Always an eye on you

    You’ve never been alone before

     

    A camera on a snake can check your prostate

    Satellites in space record the moon

    A camera placed in faith can cause a heartache

    A dashboard cam can make bad cops be good

     

    Always an eye on you

    (Everybody’s watching)

    Always an eye on you

    You’ve never been alone before

    Always an eye on you

    (Everybody’s watching)

    Always an eye on you

    You’ve never been alone before

    Never been alone (4x)

     

    Always an eye on you

    (Everybody’s watching)

    Always an eye on you

    You’ve never been alone before

    Always an eye on you

    (Everybody’s watching)

    Always an eye on you

    You’ve never been alone before

    Never been alone (4x)

  • 03:13 Story Lyrics
    Fold with 'em

    Say you don’t need me because I’m all into your friends

    On your own to fold with ‘em, is not the end

    Gave you the time of your life and you blame me

    Even pretended to hate me

    When guarantees are ungiven, and everything given free

     

    I swooped in once dead and gone from movin’ and groovin’

    Chose your friends as second bests to be a default star

     

    Not too late to fold with ‘em end over end over end

    Not too late to fold with ‘em end over end over end

    Not too late to fold with ‘em end over end over end

    Not too late to fold with ‘em end over end over end

     

    Survey says, well that depends

    Absolutes don’t mean a thing when you’re unemployed

    You try to say we’ve got limits

    But mine I’ve never seen

    You’re complicating our lives with your crazy

    Been acting carelessly

    You want to lose before you do it

    I want to bruise it and abuse it

     

    I swooped in once dead and gone from movin’ and groovin’

    Chose your friends as second bests to be a default star

     

    Not too late to fold with ‘em end over end over end

    Not too late to fold with ‘em end over end over end

    Not too late to fold with ‘em end over end over end

    Not too late to fold with ‘em end over end over end

     

    It ain’t true, all you say you do

    Where’s the proof for your altitude?

    What if you knew that you had to change your attitude?

    Because it ain’t no good

     

    Not too late to fold with ‘em end over end over end

    Not too late to fold with ‘em end over end over end

    Not too late to fold with ‘em end over end over end

    Not too late to fold with ‘em end over end over end

  • 04:09 Story Lyrics
    Get a Hold

    You didn’t wake up when I tossed you into the ocean

    And the hair on your bed has gotten smelly from the overuse

    Oh, you say you’ve got ‘em, but I don’t see your distractions

    No, you don’t get a piece of the action, because you’d rather lie around in traction

     

    Don’t even try to get a hold of me

    We had ours until you suddenly

    Decided it was obsolete

    Don’t even try to get a hold of me

     

    Caught in the middle of a cursed, chaotic commotion

    But is there ever better weather for you slipping me the absolute?

    Go, call it the bottom, you cauldron of overreaction

    You were the villain here before by your actions

    Fulfilling my dissatisfaction

     

    Don’t even try to get a hold of me

    We had ours until you suddenly

    Decided it was obsolete

    Don’t even try to get a hold of me

    Don’t even try to get a hold of me

    We had ours until you suddenly

    Decided it was obsolete

    Don’t even try to get a hold of me

    How’d I know I had mistaken

    Your being with me as happening?

    But with no time wasted

    Epiphany, a time I doodee’d

     

    Don’t even try to get a hold of me

    We had ours until you suddenly

    Decided it was obsolete

    Don’t even try to get a hold of me

    Don’t even try to get a hold of me

    We had ours until you suddenly

    Decided it was obsolete

    Don’t even try to get a hold of me
