  • Lorde meet King Push

    Life is like a costume party
    Just cover the floors in Cavalli
    Let's hide the hurt in a molly
    We're all tryna be somebody else
    You can't hide your tears in wealth
    When your heart knows you hate yourself
    It's all pain we felt
    Just the way that the card's been dealt

    Cover up all that is passed
    Drop an olive in your glass
    Putting on a disguise
    It's an ocular vice
    Everyone on the run
    Fifty feet all on the gas
    Take him out, take him out
    Gonna take him out

    We're the only theory they can't prove
    And we don't have anything to lose

    In my eyes, in my ears, bring might
    Love is only figured once in life
    Tell the crowd, search the town
    Can we make it out right now
    It's a full meltdown

    Try to break her spirit so it shouldn't be surprisin'
    We're here with no fear and gave her uprising
    Gonna blend in with the bullies and the bureaucrats
    Arrows pierce like lightning, choppers sound like thunder clap
    Never will you stand, we gon' lay you down
    Dominant and dapper kids comin' in to take the town
    Try to restrain us, even though you trained us
    We're better than you are, now we're gonna make you feed us

    Cover up all that is passed
    Drop an olive in your glass
    Putting on a disguise
    It's an ocular vice
    Everyone on the run
    Fifty feet all on the gas
    Take him out, take him out
    Gonna take him out

    We're all lookin' for status
    Cristal sent over on gratis
    Can't pretend we're not plastic
    When these poker faces take practice
    Who to trust? Who to love?
    Who to run from? Who to hug?
    Set fire to a government of thugs
    Respect only comes from the money or your blood

    We're out of sight, shadows of light
    They're closing in and I know where we're goin'
    But I don't know who I'll be

    In my eyes, in my ears, bring might
    Love is only figured once in life
    Tell the crowd, search the town
    Can we make it out right now
    It's a full meltdown

    (I can hear, and see a ghost)
    Was it meant to be?
    (In my mind, I know)
    'Cause I can't see
    (And if you keep acting up)
    I can't see
    (I'm your undertow) Writer/s: ALANA HAIM, DANIELLE HAIM, ELLA MARIJA LANI YELICH-O'CONNOR, ESTE HAIM, JOEL LITTLE, KAMAL IBN JOHN FAREED, PAUL VAN HAVER, TERRENCE THORNTON
