  • I'm up in the woods
    I'm down on my mind
    I'm building a still
    To slow down time

    I'm up in the woods
    I'm down on my mind
    I'm building a still
    To slow down the time

    I'm up in the woods
    I'm down on my line
    I'm building a still
    Down the time ooh

    I'm lost in the world
    Been down my whole life
    I'm new in the city
    And I'm down for the night
    Down for the night
    Said she's down for the night

    Down the time
    I'm lost in the world
    Been down my whole life
    I'm new in the city
    But I'm down for the night
    Down for the night, down for the night

    You're my devil, you're my angel
    You're my Heaven, you're my Hell
    You're my now, you're my forever
    You're my freedom, you're my jail
    You're my lies, you're my truth
    You're my war, you're my truce
    You're my questions, you're my proof
    You're my stress and you're my masseuse
    Ma-ma-se, ma-ma-se, ma-ma-ku-sa
    Lost in this plastic light
    Let's break out of this fake ass party
    Turn this into a classic night
    If we die in each other's arms
    Still get laid in that afterlife
    If we die in each other's arms
    Still get laid yeah

    I'm up in the woods (run from the lights, run from the night)
    Run for your life
    I'm new in the city
    And I'm down for the night
    Down for the night, down for the night

    I'm lost in the world
    Been down my whole life
    I'm new in the city
    But I'm down for the night
    Down for the night, down for the night

    Who will survive in America?
    Who will survive in America? (Down for the night)
    Who will survive in America?
    Who will survive in America?

    I'm lost in the world
    Been down my whole life
    I'm new in the city
    And I'm down for the ride, known for the ride

    I'm lost in the world
    Been down my whole life
    I'm new in the city
    But I'm down for the night
    Down for the night, for a good time

    Hey oh wow oh

    Hey oh wow oh
    Hey oh wow oh
    Whoa whoa whoa
