Levitate

  • Oh, I know how to levitate up off my feet
    And ever since the seventh grade I learned to fire-breathe
    And though I feed on things that fell
    You can learn to levitate with just a little help
    Learn to levitate with just a little help

    Come down, come down
    Cowards only come through when the hour's late
    And everyone's asleep, mind you
    Now show up, show up
    I know I shouldn't say this
    But a curse from you is all that I would need right now, man
    Come down, come down
    Cowards only come through when the hour's late
    And everyone's asleep, mind you
    Now show up, show up
    I know I shouldn't say this
    But a curse from you is all that I would need right now, man

    Danger in the fabric of this thing I made
    I probably shouldn't show you, but it's way too late
    My heart is with you hiding, but my mind's not made
    Now they know it like we both knew for some time I'd say
    They're smirking at first blood, they're circling above
    But this is not enough
    Yeah, this is not what you thought
    No, no we are not just graffiti on a passing train
    I got back what I once bought back
    In that slot I won't need to replace
    This culture is a poacher of overexposure, not today
    Don't feed me to the vultures
    I am a vulture who feeds on pain
    Sleep in a well-lit room, don't let the shadow through
    And sever all I knew, yeah, sever all
    I thought I could depend on my weekends
    On the freezing ground that I'm sleeping on
    Please, keep me from, please, keep me
    Down from the ledges
    Better test it, wooden wedges under doorways
    Keep your wooden wedges under doors
    Chorus, verse, chorus, verse
    Now here comes the eight
    Wait, habits here too, you're the worst
    Your structure compensates
    But compensation feels a lot like rising up to dominate by track two
    At least they all know all they hear comes from a place

    Oh, I know how to levitate up off my feet
    And ever since the seventh grade I learned to fire-breathe
    And though I feed on things that fell
    You can learn to levitate with just a little help
    You can levitate with just a little help
