Burn It Down 04:19
Me and my witches bout to burn it down Saying me and my witches bout to burn it down Burn it down Burn it down Me and my witches about to burn it down Saying me and my witches about to burn it down Ain’t no water when it comes to revenge Saying ain’t no water when it comes to revenge Burn it down Why you runnin' from me?

Buzzkill 03:38
I'm training a lie To keep up the high Dig myself deep, deeper to fold Meanwhile your ignorance is choking my soul They got nothin' left on me But me to you We've got nothin' left to prove And the night's so young We'll be stayin' up to sun up And the night's so free You'll be hangin' out with me Appeasing the mass As they stare through the glass Entitlement flows, free unrepressed As if you've earned these scars on my chest They got nothin' left on me But me to you We've got nothin' left to prove And the night's so young We'll be stayin' up to sun up And the night's so free You'll be hangin' out with me With you With you With you With me And the night's so young We'll be stayin' up to sun up And the night's so free You'll be hangin' out with me And the night's so young We'll be stayin' up to sun up And the night's so free You'll be hangin' out with me With you With you With you With me

Wave 04:25
You say something’s right when it’s not But believe in where we’re from We’re not leaving them behind Cause we need them where we’re going In the wave And it bends this way for us Refracted in the rust We’re going leave them in the dust We don’t need them where we’re going In the wave Follow your footsteps into the dark You say something’s right when it’s not But believe in where we’re from We’re not leaving them behind Cause we need them where we’re going In the wave

Rock Bottom 03:56
Remember when you told me your secrets We were sitting by the pool Doesn’t mean much to me now though Then when you hit rock bottom You made me look like a fool Maybe that's just what you wanted Above it, looking down from your pink cloud I found you through the weeds in the garden as we made the roses grow I closed my eyes as you cut them down You whispered that I drove you to madness When I turned the mirror around You lit the match and burned it down Above it, looking down from your pink cloud Now you’re driving faster, it’s all behind you now all is well on your pink cloud Driving faster, straight into the ground It’s all behind you now

Dancelite 03:54
Dancelite I'm feelin' where you are tonight Dancelite And feelin' where you are tonight What you want tonight Dancelite I'm feeling where you are tonight Be in my dancelite I'm feeling where you are tonight, what you want But when I'm walking outside with you To do the things that I wanna do Be in my dancelite and feelin' Where you are tonight, what you want tonight Run around, run around, run around that fire now Run around, run around, run around that fire now I wanna pretend you're fine And leave it all and cross the line Dancelite I'm feeling where you are tonight Be in my dancelite And feeling where you are tonight, what you want But when I'm walking outside with you To do the things that I wanna do Be in my dancelite and feelin' Where you are tonight, what you want tonight Run around, run around, run around that fire now Run around, run around, run around that fire now I wanna pretend I'm fine And leave it all and cross the line

Breathless, leaving me behind You won't stay cuz I won't change Reckless, wanna make you mine What you won't say ignites your shame Checklist, running out of time Unknowingly I play your game Breathless, wanna make you mine We can't win and I won't change Who are you now? Which side are you on? Breathless, leaving me behind You won't stay cuz I won't change Reckless, wanna make you mine Unknowingly I play your game Checklist, running out of time We can't win and I won't change Who are you now? Which side are you on? If you wanted to stay, won’t be in the way If you wanted to leave then be there with me If you wanted to stay they’ll be in the way If you wanted to leave then go there with me

Fantasy 03:38
And it hurts, but not enough to make me bleed So I twist the tourniquet til I can't feel What I feel, you are the glitter in my dreams Now I thrash around for what I cannot see But I won't, I won't, I won't and I won't When it burns so slow that I'll give up before I blow If I can, I'll let go of my nagging need To be loved, even when I don't believe What I've done constitutes emergencies Cause I'm not everything you thought I'd be But I won't, I won't, I won't and I won't When it burns so slow that I'll give up before I blow And to me coming from you When I can't stop the stupid shit I do And to you coming from me When I can't breathe then you can't breathe But this time will be the same Except much closer to the flame Hit the ground, down on my knees and I can't breathe, I can't breathe You weren't there

Salt 04:56
You play so nice when you’ve got nothing left to kill An appreciation is just gone from your free will Keep fallin' for this trap cuz I care way too much And you wonder why they always just duck your very touch I believe it now I don’t wanna be Get me outta here I don’t wanna be Get me outta here I believe it now I don’t wanna be Get me outta here right now I don't wanna be down here Behind this fake support is there even a conscious soul? Take, take, take, take whatever you want I guess is your goal Passively demanding all this power, with bitter resentment Living like it’s some stroke of luck, nonono that’s white entitlement I believe it now I believe it now Get me outta here I don’t wanna be Get me outta here I don’t wanna be I believe it now I believe it now Get me outta here right now I don't wanna be down here You played so nice you just had nothing left to kill That appreciation is totally gone from your free will Kept fallin' for this trap cuz I just cared way too much And you wondered why they always just ducked your very touch I believe it now I don’t wanna be Get me outta here I believe it now I believe it now I don’t wanna be Get me outta here I believe it now Get me outta here right now I don't wanna be down here
