Boilermaker

Album: Typhoons (2021)

  • I was looking for some kind of saviour
    Someone still counting on my worst behaviour
    Knew there would be trouble
    With devil eyes and magic hands

    I'm all mixed up

    Head like a cocktail shaker
    Living in a house like an old bodega
    Got the odds looking in my favour
    Standing at the bottom of a boilermaker

    So keep your feet on the ground
    And listen to the sound of a real money maker

    Something's twisted up right inside me
    I'll let you use it up, so when you do leave
    Take me to the edge and let me show you what was on my mind
    Don't put all your money on me, 'cause you and me are two of a kind
    Going in blind

    I'm all mixed up

    Head like a cocktail shaker
    Living in a house like an old bodega
    Got the odds looking in my favour
    Standing at the bottom of a boilermaker

    I'm all mixed up
    Like a boilermaker

    Doo, doo, doo, doo, doo
    Doo, doo, doo, doo, doo
    Doo, doo, doo, doo, doo
    Doo, doo, doo, doo, doo
    Doo, doo, doo, doo, doo
    Doo, doo, doo, doo, doo
    Doo, doo, doo, doo, doo
    Doo, doo, doo, doo, doo

    I'm all mixed up

    Head like a cocktail shaker
    Standing at the bottom of a boilermaker
    I'm all mixed up
    Head like a cocktail shaker
    Living in a house like an old bodega
    Got the odds looking in my favour
    Standing at the bottom of a boilermaker
