Face to the Floor

Album: Hats Of to the Bull (2011)
  • To pick up the tip
    Doesn't mean a lot,
    Fiddle inside your drawers

    If we own the night
    Then spread it out
    Or pack up
    Without a clue

    Well
    Caused by their own
    When by default
    Time to vámonos

    Like your face
    Getting forced
    To the floor

    Then I got a taste
    Of the benefits
    Five foot
    And change

    There's no better way
    To hash it out
    So let's set up
    Your time to fail

    Well
    Course now the cracks
    Should we intervene
    I hold this albatross

    Like your face
    Getting forced
    To the floor
    And either way
    You're way too close
    To it all

    Pay up, never
    Wait 'em out
    Clever, Madoff
    Take it all
    Take it all

    (Your, mouth, blessed)

    Take 'em all the way
    Right back down

    (Clue, less, mess)

    Pay up, never
    Take it all
    Take it all

    Like your face
    Getting forced
    To the floor (In a league of your own)
    And either way
    You're way too close
    To it all (You cannot veto the world)

    Like your face (like your face)
    Getting forced (getting forced)
    To the floor (In a league of your own)
    And either way (and either way)
    You're way too close
    To it all

    Too close to it all Writer/s: PETER LOEFFLER, SAMUEL LOEFFLER
