I said, I don’t want it, I don’t want it I said, I don’t want it, I don’t want it My friend, she’s a giver, she’s a giver My friend, she’s a killer, she’s a killer Look, but don’t touch With your eyes, not your hands With your smiles crisscrossing And try to follow where we go I said, I’ll tell you, I’ll tell you My friend, she’ll kill you, she’ll kill you I said, I don’t want it, I don’t want it My friends, they’re all wanted, they’re all wanted

Been around in this old way I’ve been round this town most everyday I have compromised my life away To a smoking gun, a friendly face But there ain’t no paddle beat me back Sing out Been around in this old way Well my tongue’s been tied so I can’t say That the cops don’t care, yeah its ok That the very edge is steps away But there ain’t no law can beat me back Sing out Simple weights and pointed faith Come wrap around a person’s traits In random ways to say, they may not hear you In random ways to say, I see Been around in this old way With a beating heart to tell the tale That my inhalation follows what My exhales do necessitate But there ain’t no rhythm beat me back Sing out

I revive, move back, collide with troubled eyes around me How can I believe that time has all but undefined me I get up, can I get up, can I just get a minute here Drumming starts, a tell tale heart pumping blood into me I retrace my hurried pace when all but logic’s left me Try to face my reddened face but that’s impossible for me What I’ve done and what I’ll do is drowned out by a tell tale heart Waking up, needled up, it leaves me upside down Chorus: I can’t stop my head from spinning oh so fast And I can’t stop I combine, move back, align with smoky eyes around me Try to hide my worried mind when all but logic’s left me Severed ties, petrified, all sped up by a tell tale heart I’ll step back, I’ll step back, oh I’ll take another giant step back I can’t stop my head from spinning oh so fast And I can’t stop Hold it down Holy now Hold it down Oh, oh, oh I revive, move back, collide with troubled eyes around me How can I believe that time has all but undefined me I get up, if I get up, I might just need a minute here Rhythm stops in quiet parts of songs now listen closer here I can’t stop my head from spinning oh so fast And I can’t stop Rhythm stops in quiet parts of songs now listen closer here

It’s always fun to see It’s always fun to see It’s always fun to find Out just how close, just how high we go Just how close, just how high we go It’s always fun to know It’s always fun to know It’s always fun to find Out just how high we can build before we knock it down Just how high we can build until it all falls down Reload The weather We’ll give her All the sun, and half the rain To go Reload And measure The level It’s safe to go Then back it off a bit It’s my favorite thing to do My favorite thing to do My favorite thing to think About but never actually do Think about but never actually do And all the time I’ve spent Worrying and worrying And all the time I’ve spent Contemplating names in my head And wobbling, I’m wobbling, I’m Come watch me as I fall Come watch me as I fall Come watch me as I foll Ow arrows I follow arrows, I Follow arrows, I follow arrows, I do

Met a man well he was ten feet tall, we’re going down He told me that he knew me all along, we’re going down Said he’d leave me lying once he’s standing strong, we’re going down We’re going down I asked him why he took a chance so tall, we’re going down I asked him why he led a free for all, we’re going down I asked him why he’d plant a stance so strong, we’re going down Water pouring down In the middle of a bustling crowd, we shake From the middle of our ups and downs, we take Once the levee’s built back up it tends to break And when we’re standing tall, we’re moving
