Burns From the Rope

 

 

Young People

 

Little piggy with a big gun

Got no reason but I'm sure he'll find one

We're all compensating for something

 

Eavesdropping on the party line

Party People drawing party lines, oh no

Cut cut on the low

~lit~

Pointing fingers at you in Dream World

But the bullet never goes

Privilege moves slow

They're saying the boy got eyes on you

Don't need a letter to put the heat on you

We're pinning you

 

Young People, pull the fence down

We're gonna work it out, work it out

 

Doesn't matter where you're from, we got you

Same word different tongue, we got you

 

Dreams with legs too heavy to run

We're gonna work it out

Donny don't need your vote to split God's equal sons

Juan ama a su familia just as much as John

Tryna feed his babies, but he's in the wrong

 

Young People, pull the fence down

 

 

 

 

Climber

 

Do what he say

Do what he say, don't don't

 

Paint me in your mountains

I drink from rivers that all flow from you

And I been burning like a forest

Holding my breath in when I’m not holding you

Higher, higher, climb

Getting higher with you

 

You only feel it when I give it to you

See me through closed eyes

He’s there hovering over you

Girl, don’t waste our time

 

You said I reach the peak of “climb in love”

Higher, higher, climb

He’s higher than you

 

*Burns From the Rope*

 

I wanna grip your heart strings

Be behind your every move

I said I’m in control and you want this

I’m climbing

 

There's someone else in your mountains

There’s someone else behind every move

There’s someone else in your mountains and I’m at your feet

Begging for a view

 

You only feel it when I give it to you

 

 

 

 

In Character

 

In Character, so adventurous

Head high, he’s with us

Catching up in stride

She’s tryna leave a tip, can’t make the change

Can you take the hint?

Nah, but every little bit helps in the thick of it

 

Well, I can’t recall my dreams no more

Cheap living, theories unfold to save face and keep score

Silence to my ears

When do we keep on settling

To see the end but not the light?

I saw the end but not the light

 

We step misstep wholeheartedly there

 

I can see the time and the place

Where all my missteps set a path for me

When I break free the herd keeps spitting at me

And I’m spitting back

 

Was beside myself trying to spill it all, that’s the truth

Trying to guess what happens is no better than lying low

Find the language of that feeling

Through freedom of authenticity

 

We step misstep wholeheartedly there

 

I can see the time and the place

Where all my missteps set a path for me

When I break free the herd keeps spitting at me

And I’m spitting back

 

 

 

 

Fun Run

 

She is so beautiful she might as well be a ghost

Or a friendly face at the most
 

The life of lovers is a slippery slope

It’s just long falls, butterflies and Burns From the Rope

 

Climb away, she’s here all over you

And I will come close

Nothing’s ever been more true

 

I am so lonely with my head up in the clouds

Living artificial nights, no I never leave my house

I don’t give a fuck about your love life problems

Just say damn the gods and move on

 

Climb away, she’s here all over you

And I will try

Oh that’s such a fucking lie

 

Well, I been trying so hard

Climb

 

 

 

 

Perfect Moments

 

What if there are no more perfect moments to share?

 

Scenes turn to memories, turn to feelings, turn to words

Rose tinted glasses keep me smiling

Tears today and laughs tomorrow

Mamma said quit chasing your shadow

Well Mamma, I try

 

I keep on climbing, but I ain’t getting any higher

I keep on burning, but feel no warmth from the fire

 

I turned my back on life seeking to explain it

turning wonder to a science, I need a new escape plan

don’t bother trying to reach me

I’m not looking at my phone

 

Because I’m busy looking for something to look forward to

 

I keep on climbing, but I ain’t getting any higher

 

 

 

 

La Petite Mort

 

Go head and start it

I pull off and park it when you said to me

“Let’s keep it moving”

 

Girl you know this deep loving is a scene

You’re serving time heals all

Food for thought in the bowl of your watch dog

 

He said that I got no business laying in your bed

Well that’s extraordinary interest for just a friend

“Oh it’s nothing, just trust me, I’m paving my way to the Good Life

I’ll ring you from there”

 

They’re always rockin’ & rollin’ & droppin’ & rollin’

On something their bodies won’t like in the morning

I’ll collect my doubts and get back to you

And I do, I wish you the very best

Just not anywhere that I can see you

Every love song’s a mistake by the time it’s written

 

And oh the trends, the trends aren’t in as fast as you

They said just let her through

Patience, I got no time for you

You say be patient, I will be coming through eventually

So high maintenance

Oh how the peasants live to serve the queen

“Why would I settle bb?

You may kiss the ring”

 

He said that I got no business laying in your bed

Watchdog start to whimper when he don’t get fed

“Oh it’s nothing, just trust me, I’m paving my way to the Good Life

I’ll ring you from there”

 

They’re always rockin’ & rollin’

 

Oh I just need one more time with you

No, I don’t need overtime

No, I can’t take all your love from you

 

I never meant to trap you

I’ve never been mad at you

 

Now I know that love’s just passing by

Flows like water, dries like cum, why do I act surprised?

Finder, keeper / lover, weeper, this is nothing new

And I don’t blame you girl, you’re doing what you gotta do

Do what you gotta do

 

I never meant to trap you

Never been mad at you
