Ruby – Foster the People

And there she goes
She was sitting really nice with her head full of advice from friends
She walks around
She tries to rearrange but everything goes under her bed

And it’s countless
She’s got a jar full of change saved up for vacation
And she’s watching
She’s watching her sons growing up just like their mom

And it’s hard
And I said Ruby, Ruby, Ruby
Gotta start lifting your head up, head up, head up
And I said Ruby, Ruby, Ruby
I know it’s hard but you gotta get outta bed, outta bed, outta bed

Yeah she don’t know what to do
She’s got everything and nothing to lose
She got a call from a guy just seeing if she’s alright
Yeah

She’s got a fistful of tears held back by the strength of five
And she says, “Happiness ain’t free
Everybody fights just like me
But I’ve given up the ability to retreat”

And I said Ruby, Ruby, Ruby
You gotta start lifting your head up, head up, head up
And I said Ruby, Ruby, Ruby
I know it’s hard but you gotta get outta bed, outta bed, outta bed

Yeah she don’t know what to do
She’s got everything, nothing to lose
Yeah

Yeah you’ve got time to figure it out
I’m here so don’t be scared
You’ve got time to figure it out
I’m here and I am here

You’ve got time to figure it out
I’m here so don’t be scared
You’ve got time to figure it out
I’m here so don’t be scared

Ruby, Ruby, Ruby
And I said Ruby, Ruby, Ruby
And I said Ruby, Ruby, Ruby
And I said Ruby, Ruby, Ruby
All alone, rest your head on my lap when you’re down
All alone, rest your head on my lap, on my lap
Ruby don’t cry

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”

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
