  • The deals we made to shake things up
    And the rights that they abuse
    Might just fuck us over
    But the doors won't shut
    Until they're sure there's nothing left to use
    Someone's taking over
    Threw it away, but now I say
    It's time to hand it over

    The joke's worn thin, the king stepped in
    Now we'll see who is who
    Look who's bending over

    But the stars weren't wrong, the time felt right
    We both knew it was true
    The smart ones exit early
    And the rest hope for a shoulder

    If we lose our touch, it won't mean much
    If everyone's confused
    Which door do we open?

    It's the same old trick
    They played their hand
    Now there's one thing to left to do

    It's time (hand it over)
    It's yours and it's mine (hand it over)
    One thing on my mind (hand it over)
    It's rightfully mine (hand it over)
    In the dark (hand it over)
    What's yours is mine (hand it over)
    Mmm, make it right (hand it over)
    And give me what's mine (hand it over)

    Oh, this time (hand it over)
    It's yours and mine (hand it over)
    Hey, it's time to (hand it over)
    Just give me what's mine (hand it over)
    Mmm, anytime (hand it over)
    It's yours and it's mine (hand it over)
    Oh, I need time (hand it over)
    No, no it's rightfully mine (hand it over)
    Oh, anytime Writer/s: Andrew Vanwyngarden, Benjamin Goldwasser
