(F--- A) Silver Lining

Album: Pray For the Wicked (2018)
  • "Out to the old, and to the new
    We rededicate this song to you..."

    Fuck a silver lining
    Fuck a silver lining
    Cause only gold is hot enough, hot enough
    Fuck a silver lining
    Fuck a silver lining
    Cause only gold is hot enough, hot enough

    One more, one more

    It's just cherries, cherries
    Everything is cherries on top
    No wings of wax or endless mountains
    Tragedies with penniless fountains
    It's just cherries, cherries
    It's coming up cherries on top
    Sunset shadows through the trophies
    I guess it just ain't big enough

    Say it one more, one more, one more

    Fuck a silver lining
    Fuck a silver lining
    Cause only gold is hot enough, hot enough
    Fuck a silver lining
    Fuck a silver lining
    Cause only gold is hot enough, hot enough

    It's just cherries, cherries
    Everything is cherries on top
    It's just cherries, cherries
    Everything is cherries on top

    (One more, one more)

    We've been falling, falling
    It's like we fell to the top
    I was born to cut a million
    Cut my teeth and made a killing
    Now I'm dodging, dodging
    Everything you think that I'm not
    Archetype of television
    Was lost in thought but held my vision, ey

    When ya gonna say my name
    When ya gonna say my name
    A quick charade
    Beyoncé
    Lemonade
    When ya gonna say my name
    When ya gonna say my name
    No delay
    No half-way
    Lemme hear you say

    One more, one more, one more
    (One more)

    [*Beep*] Silver lining
    Fuck a silver lining
    Cause only gold is hot enough, hot enough
    Fuck a silver lining
    Fuck a silver lining
    Cause only gold is hot enough, hot enough

    It's just cherries, cherries
    Everything is cherries on top
    It's just cherries, cherries
    Everything is cherries on top

    Silver lining
    Fuck a silver lining
    Cause only gold is hot enough, hot enough

    (One more, one more)
