Album: False Alarm (2019)
Play Video
  • I came back to breathe the smoke
    I've got a system and I'm usin' my head (talk that talk)
    Close enough to stay afloat
    But you can sink with all the weight you've been fed (that talk)

    Pulled and pried
    A push don't make it right
    Lost so easily
    Tell me what you're doin'
    Top shelf guy, supermarket price
    Don't think much of me
    Tell me what you're doin'

    (Just do it)
    I want it all
    Nonstop givin', I like the way you talk
    (Just do it)
    Don't hit the wall
    Can't stop livin', do anything you want
    (Just do it)
    Ooh, ooh, ooh
    (Just do it) ooh-ooh-ooh
    (Just do it)

    Precious toys don't work for play
    They make a killin' sittin' out of the game (talk that talk)
    Make that choice to be okay
    There's nothin' to it when you're makin' it rain (that talk)

    Taking flight, fallin' from a height
    Sounds the same to me
    Tell me what you're doin'
    Eyes shut tight, keepin' out the light (light)
    Means I disagree
    Tell me what you're doin'

    (Just do it) I want it all
    Nonstop givin', I like the way you talk
    (Just do it)
    Don't hit the wall
    Can't stop livin', do anything you want
    (Just do it) ooh, ooh, ooh
    (Just do it) ooh, ooh, ooh
    (Just do it)

    (Just do it)
    (Just do it)
    (Just do it, oh, oh, ohh)

    Use somethin', prove somethin'
    Now, now, now
    Choose somethin', lose somethin'
    Now, now, now

    Use somethin', prove somethin'
    Now, now, now
    Choose somethin', lose somethin'
    Now, now, now

    Do something, do something
    Do something, do something
    Do something, do something

    (Just do it)
    I want it all
    Nonstop givin', I like the way you talk
    (Just do it)
    Don't hit the wall, can't stop livin'
    Do anything you want
    (Just do it) ooh, ooh, ooh
    (Just do it) ooh, ooh, ooh
