  • Cheap bed, in the red
    Sleep the words out of your head
    Cold floor, nice and raw
    Eat the meat that's on the floor

    High tide, some disguise
    Loving makes the cream taste nice
    New shore, final score
    On fresh demand, I'm wanting more

    This might not last too long
    So always take it
    This might not last too long
    So take it

    Reasons, reasons were here from the start
    It's my instinction, it's my instinction
    Reasons, reasons were part of the art
    It's my instinction, it's my instinction

    You cry, justify
    But deep beneath the feelings lie
    Photo, looking old
    Memory makes the day feel cold

    They've gone, sing your song
    Walk the flow, ah, too slow
    Post boom, second doom
    Stealing cake to eat the moon

    This might not last too long
    So always take it
    This might not last too long
    So take it

    Reasons, reasons were here from the start
    It's my instinction, it's my instinction
    Reasons, reasons were part of the art
    It's my instinction, it's my instinction

    It's my instinction, hey

    Cheap bed, in the red
    You cry, justify
    Post boom, second doom
    Stealing cake to eat the moon

    Reasons, reasons were here from the start
    It's my instinction, it's my instinction
    Reasons, reasons were part of the art
    It's my instinction, it's my instinction
    It's my instinction, ohh
