Vexatious

Album: Disappearing in Airports (2016)
  • All day long (Baby)
    So made up (Baby, baby)

    All the things that you said you believed in
    Another victim of the "who's starving" feeling
    Another object, yes, you want the pursuing
    Red dress, skinny mess, lips drawn, you go

    Can you do what's been done?
    Can you shine in the sun?
    So isolated
    Can you make it a day
    Without making your way,
    Making your way to the edge?
    (Hey hey)

    Vexatious (Baby)
    So blatant (Baby, baby)

    All of the things that you do to entice just
    Another reason for the world to embrace you
    Another glance, yes we're all looking up to
    Bed head, shirtless, lips drawn, you go

    Can you do what's been done?
    Can you shine in the sun?
    So isolated
    Can you make it a day
    Without making your way
    To the edge? To the edge?
    And you wish you were dead
    Keep on pushing ahead
    So suffocated
    Can't you see that we see
    You're so clever with all
    Yeah, all you precede

    Yeah (Yeah)
    Making your way to the edge

    Can you do what's been done?
    Can you shine in the sun?
    So isolated
    Can you make it a day
    Without making your way,
    Making your way to the edge? (To the edge)
    And you wish you were dead
    Keep on pushing ahead
    So suffocated
    Can't you see that we see
    You're so clever with all
    All, clever with all you precede

    Can you do what's been done?
    Can you shine in the sun?
    So isolated
    Can you make it a day
    Without making your way,
    Making your way to the edge?
    And you wish you were dead
    Keep on pushing ahead
    So suffocated
    Can't you see that we see
    You're so clever with all
    You're so clever with all you precede Lyrics licensed and provided by LyricFind
