Anything
I met the day feeling cheaper than usual
I guess you could say that I’m on sale
So take what you can while you can,
Shop now intensive
I could snap at any moment and
I might feel more expensive


I don’t owe anything to you,
I don’t owe anything to you,
You don’t know me half as well as you think you do,
I don’t owe anything, anything to you.


I met the mirror with a pricetag hanging from my ear
And in that moment, I went un-phased
So take what you can, while you can
Less conscious only means more dough.
I could snap at any moment and remember
That I was not born to be sold.


I don’t owe anything to you,
I don’t owe anything to you,
You don’t know me half as well as you think you do,
I don’t owe anything, anything to you.


I don’t owe anything to you,
I don’t owe anything to you,
You don’t know me half as well as you think you do,
I don’t owe anything, anything to you.


Black Heart Inertia


Walking alone tonight
'Cause I've only got room for two.
Me and my burdened black heart,
It's all we know how to do.


Yet I look for a bigger bang
Than the kind I continually see.
Sick of all this inertia,
Oh, won't you mend me?


Lover, can you help me?
I'm a child lost in the woods.
A black heart pollutes me
And I think...


You're a mountain that I'd like to climb,
Not to conquer, but to share in the view.


Pulled by a false inertia,
Pushed out by circumstance.
Pistol firing at my feet
That's coercing me to dance.


Yet I look for a bigger bang
Than the kind I'm sorry to know.
Here I am, first foot of the climb.
Watch me go.


Lover, can you help me?
I'm a child lost in the woods.
A lit path eludes me
And I think...


You're a mountain that I'd like to climb,
Not to conquer, but to share in the view.
You're a bonfire and I'm gathered 'round you.
Set this old black heart inertia aflame.
Send it away... (8X)


You're a mountain that I'd like to climb,
Not to conquer, but to share in the view.
You're a bonfire and I'm gathered 'round you.
Set this old black heart inertia aflame.


Set it aflame, send it away... (6X)


Martini
She was a new mean beauty queen,
Money, drugs, magazines,
That didn't do nothing, That didn't do nothing,
They Gave Her Diamonds, Shiny Boys, City Speak, Every Joy,
That didn't do nothing, no nothing for her
You can lead a horse to water but you can't expect it to drink
Now ain't that something, Now ain't that something
Yeah when the world is at your gate, that won't satiate.
Why are you crying, you want for nothing at all


Don't be a fly in my Martini baby come on down
The roof is high and i'm not climbing tonight,
Come down and i'll give you something to cry about


Fast Cars, Bougie Bars, Trial,
And Drown In The Scars
It won't do nothing, it won't do nothing
Even the best frame won't change your wet painting into,
The Mona Lisa, The Mona Lisa,
You've got to dry your eyes baby,
I know it's your party and you,
Cry if you want to, cry if you want to,
Yeah when the world is at your gate & That don't fill your plate
Why are you crying, you want for nothing at all.


Don't be a fly in my Martini baby come on down
The roof is high and i'm not climbing tonight,
Come down and i'll give you something to cry about


Midnight Swim


A midnight swim
Is what I'm needing
A careless will
A fast for feeding


Chorus
I take to the deep
Where the lights been til now
Gotta break out and find
What the day left behind


So into blue
Begin an ark
The man was you
True and spark oh


Chorus
I take to the deep
Where the lights been til now, safe
Gotta break and out and find
What the day left behind


Water and salt
Secrets like new
Arrive salt
A midnight swim


Chorus
I take to the deep
Where the lights, until now, asleep
Gotta break in and find
What the day left behind


While All The Vultures Feed
The Future is on Fire
Of a dying breed.
Don't understate our relevance,
We're the eyes and the Walls
And we witness the Vultures feed.


Yeah!
Stay wide awake.
Stay wide awake.Yeah!


Ohhhh
Make haste 'cause predators precede.


Ohhhh
Stay wide awake.
Stay wide awake.Yeah!


Ohhhh
While all the Vultures feed.

Like angles in a sphere,
Of our own design.
No more perpetual innocence.
With words we make shapes,
And our angles can align.


Yeahhh

And our appetite's careless and menacing.
It humbles me...
We breath softly as like the predator?
Such is a sight to see.


(Chorus 2x)
Stay wide awake,
While all the vultures feed (x4)
