    Cannonball

    You're kicking on back when the zig-zag put you on the floor
    But the Beach Boys bring that endless summer to your room
    From the dive bar you can make it to that sold-out show
    And you want that sacred love, won't you just make it so

    But if things stop and lock down
    [?] to the ground
    And every time you get lost, get found
    And when you raise up that glass, drink it down

    Like hand-written mail we're just tales that are soon forgotten
    Sink your teeth in the flesh of this new horizon

    Had 'em screaming out "Oh, my Lord"
    Being cannonball, bringing all hell to the board
    Being cannonball
    Cannonball
    Got me screaming out "Oh, my Lord"
    I'm a cannonball, bringing all hell to the floor

    Through the rooftop, through that gridlock, through the alleyways
    If the world's your canvas, just pick up that brush and paint
    If you're caught between a rock and me and watch you wait
    Better find another route, don't even fucking hate

    I'll follow ya
    As if you were my lover
    Yeah even if the dance is lost
    And we're all going under

    Like hand-written mail we're just tales that are soon forgotten
    Sink your teeth in the flesh of this new horizon

    Had 'em screaming out "Oh, my Lord"
    Being cannonball, bringing all hell to the board
    Being cannonball
    Cannonball
    Got me screaming out "Oh, my Lord"
    I'm a cannonball, bringing all hell to the floor

    Cannonball
    Ohhhh coming down
    You know you got me

    Bringing all hell to the board
    Cannonball
    Bringing all hell to the board
    Cannonball

    Bringing all hell to the board
    Bringing all hell to the board
    Got me screaming out "Oh, my Lord"
    I'm a cannonball, bringing all hell to the floor
