lyrics

All of this comes so fast, I’m stranded in the desert like everything’s passed
We will be shrivelling up like prunes soon enough, and floating away on the wings of dust
Like old friends meeting after years apart, the buzz is gone
I know this place, there isn’t more to me
Than a 12-hour battery, instincts to police me
Thin lines to direct me, discontent & comfortably.

Picture yourself in a scene, you’re formerly 19
The sharpest businessman I’ve ever seen
As you wake at the break of dawn, there’s no one to hear a yawn
Scull down a cappuccino, on the railway: go.

Mornings like these, I wanna curl up and die
Feels like I’ve grown up too fast, what happened to a simpler time
When work was just a daydream, a weightless amphetamine
I know I should man up and take it as reality

But every day goes a little bit faster, when I sit here thinking of you
And one day I swear I’m gonna smile, one of these nights I’ll come home to you
You make me wanna’ work for something more than Monday ever could
And when I pick up the pace, it never felt so good

As the days go by, see my baby looking fly and now I’m vibin’
I feel your fresh beat girl upon which this funky rhythm is a-thrivin’

But aren’t we all just talk? We say we’ll never be that guy
Suddenly we close our eyes and just go with it
Feels like we aim so high, but straight from the blue sky
It’s looking like gravity always wins
I’ll be out there making a difference, but to who or what?
They tell me be reckless, go spend a lot
But don’t we end up the same, stepping on that train
You feel it in your shins, gravity always wins

With the freedom to run, and the freedom to dance & make fate
That’s something you can never take away
I choose it step by step, blow by blow
And every failure reminds me that I’m alive today
You can spend your days rotting in your homemade prison cell
But in the end you make up your own heaven or hell
I’ll sit down with my pen and I’ll write a revolution
Cause’ in the end the gravity’s up to me.

As the days go by, see my baby looking fly and now I’m vibin’
I feel your fresh beat girl upon which this funky rhythm is a-thrivin’
There’s a place not far, break a sweat into the tar now we’re arriving
Take a deep breath in, feel the weight around your skin keeping you vibin’

It’s so much easier to give up and sleep
I wanna’ wake up alive, and be present here
I wanna’ see you boycotting the escalators & take the stairs
Don’t you bitch out.
Put a fire in my hair and the movement in my bones
Help me reach the purpose you designed me for, and real soon I’m
Havin’ a vibe, havin’ a vibe, havin’ a vibe yeah, mmm mmmm.

As the days go by, see my baby looking fly and now I’m vibin’
I feel your fresh beat girl upon which this funky rhythm is a-thrivin’
There’s a place not far, break a sweat into the tar now we’re arriving
Take a deep breath in, feel the weight around your skin keeping you vibin’.
