The Currents

Album: Wild World (2016)
  • Roll up another cigarette
    Using the minute that it takes
    To think about the power of your words
    We're living in the currents you create
    We're sinking in the pool of your mistakes
    So stub it out, your podium awaits

    Oh my God, my God
    I can't quite believe my ears

    I'm swimming to the surface
    I'm coming up for air
    'Cause you're making me feel nervous
    I need to clear my head
    I can't believe my ears
    I don't wanna believe my ears
    I'm swimming to the surface
    I'm coming up for air

    How can you think you're serious?
    Do you even know what year it is?
    I can't believe the scary points you make
    Still living in the currents you create
    Still sinking in the pool of your mistakes
    Won't you stop firing up the crazies?

    Oh my God, my God
    I can't quite believe my ears

    I'm swimming to the surface
    I'm coming up for air
    'Cause you're making me feel nervous
    I need to clear my head
    I can't believe my ears
    I don't wanna believe my ears
    I'm swimming to the surface
    I'm coming up for air

    "When anybody preaches disunity, tries to pit one of us against the other
    You know that person seeks to rob us of our freedom and destroy our very lives"

    Oh, I need a breath
    I need a breath
    Fill my lungs
    Let me fill my lungs?
    Oh, I need a breath
    I need a breath
    Fill my lungs
    Let me fill my lungs
    Oh, I need a breath
    I need a breath
    Fill my lungs
    Let me fill my lungs
    Oh, I need a breath
    I need a breath
    Fill my lungs
    Let me fill my lungs

    I'm swimming to the surface
    I'm coming up for air
    'Cause you're making me feel nervous
    I need to clear my head
    I can't believe my ears
    I don't wanna believe my ears
    I'm swimming to the surface
    I'm coming up for air Writer/s: DANIEL CAMPBELL SMITH, MARK CREW
