lyrics

What if I told you that if you listened to me I could help set you free?
Not with just a dream or something magical,
But something that actually qualifies with your psyche…
As long as you promise to take us to the top then I promise bombs won’t drop, (NO!)
But if you have doubts then loosen your intentions ‘cause surely these things won’t pop…
And I won’t fall no I won’t fall,
Even when things seem to stop!

Every time you thought you knew, aren’t ya glad ya did something new? (Aren’t ya glad?)
And every time you toughed it out, aren’t ya glad to show us something new, (A particular kind of spectacle)
And all these thoughts you thought you had do they recognize your own truth? (Do they recognize?!)
Every time you feel a test, is it comin’ from me or you?
Everything comes from me or you now, huh?!

So let’s take it one step back,
Break the country club’s back for doin’ things that they wouldn’t stop, (NOOOO!)
Like tellin’ people they mattered more for a money tree that they couldn’t they couldn’t crop, (Yeah, YEAH!!)
Are ya sick of all this shit can you too not believe it, well maybe that’s why these systems flop!
Because if you believe it then that’s how it’s all perceived and,
That’s why it feels like it’s all gonna drop…
It’s all gonna drop right now…

If I set you free,
Would you listen to me,
Have we been listening at all?
‘Cause all the things we see,
They happen to you and me,
‘Cause of what is done by you and me…

Oh I never knew the scariest part of you not being alive is that they tried to tell me that you were gone.
And I said, “No, sir. I ain’t gonna sing that song or do that dance. It’s my life. I’m gonna live it the way I wanna live it. Not in your trance, but mine.”
When someone tries to tell you how to live your life, you say, “NO! No, I’m just fine!”

Every time you thought you knew, aren’t ya glad ya did something new? (Aren’t ya glad?)
And every time you toughed it out, aren’t ya glad to show us something new, (A particular kind of spectacle)
And all these thoughts you thought you had do they recognize your own truth?
Every time you feel a test, is it comin’ from me or you?
Is it coming from me or you?
