lyrics

I got an answer for
all the million words that they’re askin for
in a lie

Cuz I tell em I got the answer to
all the billion cries when they’re looking
into my eyes

And all, so beautiful

I’m showing the way I said
in a powerful voice only in my head
and they fell

Never wonder why tell me I do this when
I could easily take up a problem
And make it all well
With nothing left to sell

Say what you say stay thinking all day and never
take any payday thinking its gonna lead the way
You’ll never get it wrong

Oh, tell me that you
Say what you say stay thinking all day and never
take an old saying as the right way to make it okay
You knew it all along

Today, another way.

Why can it feel like that
if I never gave in to the broken hat
as The One

Can you tell me why can it feel like this
if you never took care, if you feel remiss
it’s undone

And all, so animal

I know it all breaks down
and the tiny old pieces are all around
in my head

If I tell you I know where the problem lies
in a palace on stone in the blue sky
No matter what he read
No matter what they said

Take time and ask for another
Make mind and break line
Any other way
Wait another day,
All they’re gonna say

Take time and ask for another
Make mind and break line
Any other way
Wait another day,
No, you’re on the way

Chorus (x2)
