    Lucky

    Have you had your energy on for long?

    Together we have the synergy of a mob

    You find my head when I didn’t lose it

    I’m done with using any excuses

    Except accepted exceptions

     

    And I’ll give to you

    A place to sleep

    A room to have

    A bed to keep

    All I want in return is what you need me to do

    I’ll paint your house

    Mend your feet

    Fill you up and make complete

    All I want in return is what you need me to do

     

    I’m very close to therapy, after all

    High enough to bury me under law

    Winning in a failed institution

    Don’t ever let them say we were included

    We expect the best when we get on

     

    And I’ll give to you

    A place to sleep

    A room to have

    A bed to keep

    All I want in return is what you need me to do

    I’ll paint your house

    Mend your feet

    Fill you up and make complete

    All I want in return is what you need me to do

     

    All I want in return is what you need me to do

    All I want in return is what you need me to do

    Pick It Up

    I tried to live a dream but I wasn't waking up (I wasn't waking up)
    Tolerated real but didn't sleep enough (I didn't sleep enough)

    Don't it feel better this way
    Even in a pact to get paid
    Without feeling blue and overdue
    Kick up your feet and pick it up

    Pick It Up
    We've got to pick it up

    Time is always on our heels until it catches up
    We've got to pick it up
    These wounds will never heal until we bring them love
    We've got to pick it up
    We've got to pick it up, or go

    Don't it feel better this way
    Even in a pact to get paid
    Without feeling blue and overdue
    Kick up your feet and pick it up

    Pick It Up

  • 03:04 Story Lyrics
    Hands in My Pockets

    You've got to got to got to give me your best now
    Because I got to got to get it and can't get your best out
    I'm running on stilts in circles, casted out by your mettle

    I got to get a way to take your ah dress down (Have some, baby)
    Because I'm curious to feel how you breathe when you pass out
    From either feeling weird or lacking, tired
    Will I surrender?
    It's hard to tell

    I'm keeping the keeping up
    Piecing the peace and love
    Easily easing up
    Even while you still need serving
    Passing up nobody near enough
    To no one who even knows that we need to be in love
    Without my hands in my pockets

    Dropping a drama bomb to pick up the action (passion?crazy?)
    An opportunity presented to seize the attraction
    The needier I am need you, fear you, haunt you
    All I remember is that you're hot as hell

    I'm keeping the keeping up
    Piecing the peace and love
    Easily easing up
    Even while you still need serving
    Passing up nobody near enough
    To no one who even knows that we need to be in love
    Without my hands in my pockets

    Without my hands in my pockets

  • 04:13 Story Lyrics
    Running

    Told all the right tales like you had said them before
    Took all the right steps and never fell to the floor
    Played all the wrong takes but they were right on time
    You make your mistakes when you tire of trying

    Save yourself and never run alone again
    Save yourself when ruin is your only friend
    Save yourself and never run alone again
    Save yourself from ruin you're running

    I see you staying in style with a wink and a smile
    Keeping it all to yourself after sharing a while
    Then you put it all back and try to look for a sign
    The law is coming for you, it's just a matter of time

    There are no cures on your radio
    No doctors in your stereo
    Too many people with problems
    and some are good at playing guitar

    Save yourself and never run alone again
    Save yourself when ruin is your only friend
    Save yourself and never run alone again
    Save yourself from ruin you're running

  • 04:14 Story Lyrics
    Weight of the World

    If you tell me anything about sorrow
    Write it down, I'll read about it tomorrow
    Are we living for the end of the world?
    Give it up, it's not for you to control

    You say you miss the weight of the world
    And it's all that you want now
    It's not enough to save your soul
    When you sell it tomorrow

    Counting seconds because the minutes are vital
    Savor everything in life, it's all borrowed
    Every moment you can feel yourself dying
    I don't want to know a thing about sorrow

    Voices in your head are so misleading
    In the end, the worst is never seen

    You say you miss the weight of the world
    And it's all that you want now
    It's not enough to save your soul
    When you sell it tomorrow

    Inner Beauty

    I want to take a little holiday

    Would you kindly feed my pussy?

    Don’t know how long I’m going to be away

    Going off to seek my inner beauty

    You be my margarita meter maid

    I’ll be your Keyser Soze

    Clear out your window with a coat of paint

    All to seek what’s really, truly myth-producing

    All you find is my inner beauty

     

    (Alright! Here we go! Take off!)

     

    My little Betty, don’t you want to stay?

    Aw, it don’t matter what you want to say

    Feelin’ your drippin’ from the balcony

    Girl, you come to seek my inner beauty

    My little kitty, don’t you want to play

    No, it don’t matter what you want to say

    I hear you thinking positivity

    Come to seek what’s really, truly myth-producing

    All you find is my inner beauty

     

    Have no fear, I’m alright

    Although I’m not your type

    I’ll try with all my might

    Until I don’t treat me right

     

    No, it don’t matter what you want to say

    No, it don’t matter what you want to say

    Feelin’ your drippin’ from the balcony

    Girl, you come to seek my inner beauty

    My little kitty, don’t you want to play?

    No, it don’t matter what you want to say

    I hear you thinking positivity

    Girl, you come to see what’s really, truly myth-producing

    All you find is my inner beauty
