  • Lyrics
  • Parading to the masses, we're coming so fresh to death
    I've been stealing looks from shadows you conjure with your purse
    Yeah, you're walking in stilettos, but your nose is bleeding out
    I've been running from the devil, but the devil's on my back
    I'm decreasing, took a leave of absence from the war
    If the wall is coming down, then we gotta press the pedal
    Got my hands up in the air, I'm saying I can't breathe
    I got my hands up in the air, I'm saying

    Hey, man, get away from me
    Yeah, hey, man, get away from me
    Yeah, oh

    Never ask for any favours, nothing I want from you
    I've been looking for an answer to keep me from falling through
    But I'm waiting for the voice to speak, 'cause I can't see
    I hope we'll hear the sound eventually

    I felt their claws obstruct and refuse refugees in the new Rome
    Lock our voices in the oven like s-Sylvia at home
    My eyes are on the world, and my hands anxious to feel something real
    True colours tend to glisten and then reveal

    Where's the love?
    And why are we so far from love?
    Chased by badges, ducking lights
    Push the dagger when it's right
    Martial law, inshallah, mi casa es tuya
    Ghosting like I'm Daniel Johnston, and I'm locked up in the basement
    Where Satan lies in satin tweets and realigns his facelift
    The criminals are laughing with their empty, toothless faces
    We melted all our gold to recommence our idol worship
    We all pretend one day we'll be the greatest of the Gatsbys
    Growling mouths with rabies and loyal like Sid and Nancy

    Hey, man, get away from me
    You pretend you got control
    Hey, man, get away from me

    I never asked for any favours, nothing I want from you
    Well, I've been praying for an answer to keep me from falling through
    Yeah, I'm waiting for the voice to speak, 'cause I can't see
    Oh, we'll hear the sound eventually
    We'll hear the sound, we'll hear the sound eventuallyWriter/s: Isom Innis & Mark Foster
