Loyal Like Sid & Nancy – Foster the People

[Verse 1]
Parading to the masses
We’re coming so fresh to death
I’ve been stealing looks from shadows
You conjure with your purse
Yeah you’re walking in stilettos
But your nose is bleeding out
I’ve been running from the devil
But the devil’s on my back
I’m decreasing
Took a leave of absence from the war
If the wall is coming down
Then we got to press the pedal
Got my hands up in the air
I’m saying I can’t breathe
I got my hands up in the air
I’m saying

[Pre-Chorus]
Hey man get away from me
Yeah, hey man get away from me

[Chorus]
Never asked for any favors
Nothing I want from you
I’ve been looking for an answer
To keep me from falling through
And I’m waiting for the voice to speak
Cause I can’t see
I hope we’ll hear the sound eventually

[Verse 3]
I felt their claws obstruct and refuse
Refugees in the new Rome
They’ve locked our voices in the oven
Like Sylvia at home
My eyes are on the world
My hands are anxious
To feel something real
True colors tend to glisten
And then reveal
Where’s the love?
And why are we so far from love?

[Verse 4]
Chased by badgers, ducking lights
Push the dagger when it’s right
Martial law, inshallah
Mi casa es tuya
Ghosting like I’m Daniel Johnston
And I’m locked up in the basement
Where Satan lies in satin tweets
And realigns his face lift
The criminals are laughing with
Their empty, toothless faces
We’ve melted all our gold
To recommence our idol worship
We all pretend one day
We’ll be the greatest of the Gatsby’s
Growling mouths with rabies
And loyal like Sid & Nancy

[Pre-Chorus]
Hey man get away from me
You pretend you got control
Hey man get away from me

[Chorus]
I never asked for any favors
Nothing I want from you
Well I’ve been praying for an answer
To keep me from falling through
Yeah I’m waiting for the voice to speak
Because I can’t see
We’ll hear the sound eventually
We’ll hear the sound
We’ll hear the sound eventually

Broken Jaw – Foster the People

Yeah yeah
Yeah yeah
Yeah yeah
Yeah yeah

I’ve broken every law
All the words come out my broken jaw
I don’t know anything
But then I act like I know everything

Don’t want to talk about it
What do you see when you dream about it?
I had been broke down from my enemies
I’m drifting farther from my memories

And then you take it away

Everyday I’m fighting ’cause I can’t read you
Lost in the moment, then I come back down
Lost in the sight I try to reach out
Just a little bit closer, then I come back down

You tell me, “What’s my name?”
I’m the same I’ve just been rearranged
Smile through a joke inside
Yeah, I’ve been hiding with nothing to hide

Don’t want to talk about it
What do you see when you dream about it?
I had been broke down from my enemies
Just holding a piece of what’s been left of me

And then you take it away

Everyday I’m fighting ’cause I can’t read you
Lost in the moment, then I come back down
Lost in the sight I try to reach out
Just a little bit closer, then I come back down

Pushing me, pushing me, I can feel it, yeah
Just a little bit higher, then I come back down
Climbing over people ’cause I’ve nothing
I’m waiting, I’m waiting around

Sometimes you find yourself waiting,
Waiting for someone to come around
And it’s hopeless, hoping to be found
Then it arrives and says, “You’re perfect, my love”
And I,
I know why
I know why
I know why

But you said, “I don’t know”

READ  Love - Foster the People

You said, “I don’t know”
You said, “I don’t know”
You said, “I don’t know, you don’t know” [x3]

You said, “I don’t know”
You said, “I don’t know”
You said, “I don’t know”

So take it away, yeah
When you find and heal my broken jaw, yeah
Lyin’ near where I slayed my hero, yeah
What you need is hiding in yourself, yeah

Pumped Up Kicks – Foster the People

Robert’s got a quick hand.
He’ll look around the room, he won’t tell you his plan.
He’s got a rolled cigarette, hanging out his mouth, he’s a cowboy kid.
Yeah, he found a six shooter gun.
In his dad’s closet hidden with a box of fun things, and I don’t even know what.
But he’s coming for you, yeah he’s coming for you.

[Chorus: x2]
All the other kids with the pumped up kicks you better run, better run, outrun my gun.
All the other kids with the pumped up kicks you better run, better run, faster than my bullet.

Daddy works a long day.
He’ll be coming home late, he’s coming home late.
And he’s bringing me a surprise.
‘Cause dinner’s in the kitchen and it’s packed in ice.
I’ve waited for a long time.
Yeah the sleight of my hand is now a quick-pull trigger,
I reason with my cigarette,
And say, “Your hair’s on fire, you must have lost your wits, yeah.”

[Chorus: x2]
All the other kids with the pumped up kicks you better run, better run, outrun my gun.
All the other kids with the pumped up kicks you better run, better run, faster than my bullet.

[Whistling]

[Chorus: x4]
All the other kids with the pumped up kicks you better run, better run, outrun my gun.
All the other kids with the pumped up kicks you better run, better run, faster than my bullet.

Pseudologia Fantastica – Foster the People

Say you in the morning it seems
As I could chop one of us seeking life in
Through words bend the teeth through the wall
I promised I would rid the world of feral animals

I see you smile with your feet up like a hero’s
We know you’re off to save your reputation
Strong and fearless in your breath just like a hero
Are you shopping in your though while you’re bleeding in the wind

Why’d you say
Why’d you say that you’d come right back for my love, for my faith?
All the promises you made never realized
Why’d you say
Why’d you say that you’d come right back for my love, for my strength?
All the promises you made never realized

Feel the air what you like
Another weekend massacre, your opinion
Don’t be afraid of the night, it’s a drag you have to call for me to survive

I see you smile with your feet up like a hero
We know you’re off to save your reputation
Strong and fearless in your breath just like a hero
Are you shopping in your though while you’re bleeding in the wind

Why’d you say
Why’d you say that you’d come right back for my love, for my faith?
All the promises you made never realized
Why’d you say
Why’d you say that you’d come right back for my love, for my strength?
All the promises you made never realized
