Headphones

Album: What If Nothing (2017)
  • I can take a beating like a good pair of headphones
    I can take a hit like Karate Kid
    You know you could learn a lot from a good pair of headphones
    Like how to take a beating
    I know I did

    Oh, it's just another chain reaction
    When you make a big mistake
    Suffer all the satisfaction
    Of feeling this way

    A pretty picture of a better man taking you out
    Holding your hand, it's your favorite band
    He says, "you're so fucking cute when you're rocking it out"
    And you laugh 'til you're out, out of breath, CPR, mouth to mouth

    Oh, it's just another chain reaction
    When you make a big mistake
    Suffer all the satisfaction
    Of learning something

    (I'm so glad we can still be friends)

    Well, I can take a beating like a good pair of headphones
    And I can stand the test of time like Harrison Ford
    So go ahead, rough me up like a good pair of headphones
    I wanna open my heart, but you won't open the door

    Why I gotta feel this way?

    It's just another chain reaction
    When you make a big mistake
    Suffer all the satisfaction
    Of feeling this wayWriter/s: ELI MAIMAN, KEVIN RAY, NICHOLAS PETRICCA, SEAN WAUGAMAN
