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)
