Lyrics for sale by futsem

we are not gods:

i was a god once but traded it for mortality
to be with
to be with you until we stop and think
and begin to live our lives like we only belong actually

for the ones who have taken hold
for those stalled by the fray
to you and yours
i could have given it all away

so don’t go away
or go away
but make it fast
yes yes make it fast as you can baby

i got it figured out
so let me show you
some say just dance sucka
what you getting in to?

my arms around you only when you need
my legs are shaking
searching for something to eat
let’s get a bite
and work it out
we walk around to talk in circles
only to get down down get down

i got it figured out
so let me show you
some say romance sucka
what you getting in to?

way way down way way down
way way down way way down

just get it
take it with you
show it off
around town around town town town town

We Walk Alone

turn on tune in turn on tune in turn on tune in turn on
turn me on
tune me up
put something sweet in my cup
talk to me
oh so gently
i may crack but only evidently

so what did you do for your birthday?
how many people did you call?
how many showed without a call e at all?
where’s your team?
who sits the bench?
can you survive off your wits and intelligence?

answer me slowly
so tune me up
i’ll sit and listen
drinking from my cup

nods and quick responses are meant for you
so give me more what else can you do? oh blue, what can you do?

tell me tell me tell me tell me tell me

what’s the word oh have you heard
keep a secret
let me see it
show it off and make it known
you are the center of a world not shown

give me more give me more give me so much more
give me more give me more give me so much more

answer me fast now
so turn me up
gonna need a refill
on this here cup

tell me tell me tell me tell me tell me

How Should I Know

your vibrations can shake a house
how can you be angry at me
don’t put me down
hear me out

I’m worth more alive
so keep me in your heart
sitting beside you
thinking of when to start

show me that you care about me
feed me and fuck me
change my way of learning
and ignore our friends that doubt me

am i a mammal
or someone you want
can i be both
a secret to flaunt
yeah she’s with me
oh don’t you see it
or do you need to fight and prove
the ripples of my dying spirit

maybe she’s with him now maybe she’s with her
i doubt that another can
i doubt another can
i doubt that another can
i doubt another can
to be complete is to ignore me
and that is the worst part of the best thing for me

just breathe just breathe
just breathe just breathe
just shut your mouth
and turn about
if you miss it
it’s not my fault now
too highbrow too highbrow

look for the others who have smirked and moved on
to the patience of learning this song

then sing it to me then sing it to me then sing it to me
then sing it to me then sing it to me then sing it to me

when will we be able to look behind us
and see that we both have a crack
no play on words
yours always tend to hit back

now breathe and relax just like a man
just like just like just like you can

No Heavy Stuff

do not talk to me about politics
or who will win
or who will win the game of
the battle for your voice within

touch me slowly
and work it out
bring it closer to me
then hear me out

i want it all in you i want it all in you
i want it all in you i want it all in you

we don’t drive to go eat
but take a walk
bring your friend
and share the night sky
with meaningless talk

you are the one
so hear me closely
i’m not like most you’ve seen or heard
new faces, better descriptions in their turn
un-earned
un-learn
rooftops of uniforms and concern

i just want to go get something to eat
and maybe hold you
give you a perfect shrug
when the others scold you

so let’s make it work or have more drinks
i think i think i think i think i think
i need
more to drink

fill me up woman
fill me up bartender
fill me up neighbor
fill me up stranger

she said your eyes are your passport like someone told her
i’m convinced you’re not much older
are we going up or going down
she talks at me
am I the only one around

or so i told her or so i told her
or so i told her or so i told her

Doctor Notes

i feel fine i feel fine i feel i feel i feel

like we have no place to go but up
like we only have the choice to shoot or duck
can we make it on to the next fill up
when was the last time you poured it out your own cup

i so believe you i so believe
the power to fake break shelter conceive
who’s at the door
let them stare with a grin
win or lose
the blues can be pushed out from within

so break a sweat
and tell me your last lie
but make it fast
the silence in you must die

i know just the place i know just the place i know

you know
we know
they know
you know
you know
so let’s go let’s go let’s go

bring it out and get it dirty
wash it fold it
wear it again my friend
dont fold it

give it your best shot give it your best shot give it your best shot

and look at it later
get out and make the next one
reach out and tell the next sun
you can win and that it can be done

as we repeat ourselves as i repeat myself as we repeat ourselves

shake with it
shake to it
break from it
pursue it

This Feeling A Feeling

hey, you know what

hey hey hey hey hey hey hey hey
give it up

why not it will be fun
trying to do my best
doing all we can to win the contest
you digress

hey hey hey hey
what a mess

let’s think this over
and do it quick fast
have some pork shoulder
or maybe whip lash

either way we’re going for it
this doesn’t happen to often
getting caught and being let go
all in the space of a new coffin

hand him over now hand him over now
hand her over and

make me something to drink
or let me go buy what I want
how long has it been
since we sat and played a game of pretend

on the same side
fighting them
we want to tell you
then show it off
after we win

after we win after we win after we win after we win

they go home
after the win
people get in their cars to drive home
and try to begin

I Want To Think But Can’t

It’s hard to think with this fan in my face
let me sweat it out
and make it shout
and everything that you’ve heard before all the times we have went out

so grow up cause there’s nobody home
no time to rest
get up to claim your success
give a dog a bone
and brag to your friends

my friends are your friends and your friends are yours too
so what do we do what do we do what do we do
tell me what to do
show me how to lose
give me a pillow and couch to study out the rules

sit and wait
or yell out
and watch the sirens pass us by
with checkmate
God you are so beautiful
seeing you on that corner
holding you for just a moment
knowing you are a goner

the great escape the great escape the great escape the great

you gonna cry
she’s not anymore my worry
life’s a game
and we all best be in a hurry

why did i start with this
and how can i get going
to a place where i can see the road
and turn to walk
when its snowing

the cold don’t bother me the cold won’t bother you
so let’s be cool in a crowd
it’s way overdue
I’m way over you

way over who? way over who?

let’s hear it back now
let’s hear it back now
I like the act now
don’t fear the background

I’m Ready Now

go for it go for it go for it go

take off your shirt
give you mine in exchange
free to roam the plains
explore your inner lane

with what do we owe the pleasure
just you and you and speech
that feels under pressure
turn it down
and listen to her
make it lesser

she can tell you all that you wanted to know
if you are stubborn or taken for ransom
then you might grow
not all feelings are meant for show

when’s the last time when’s the last time
when’s the last time when’s the last time

tell me
show me
know me
slowly

change it fast now
make it last how
can we crash down
is it safe to pass out

when you see it done it makes it easier to do
when you see it done it makes it easier to do

so let’s go outside and work our fingers to the bone
make it last
this shall pass
your eyes are full of home

you are all alone you are all alone
you are all alone you are all alone you are
on your own
so change it fast and grab a hold
new belt new shoes new ways to be bold

won’t get you far
but you do good for yourself
so cash in your health
and claim your star

amongst the stars amongst the stars amongst the stars

Thank You Kindely

thank you
thank you
thank her for me
eat a burger for me
as you start to get boring

an important stop on my trip
where a lesson is told
see if it sticks
or gets sold
I wouldn’t know shit

thank you for her
thank you warning
in a place now
that my work is forming

the roles you started out with
made for all to see
your bright was shining
but now how can it be

chorus:
with all your things with all of your junk
can we really be happy
you’ve made a beautiful mess
cut to commercial fancy

I’m working out now
my body’s responding
too late to show you
am i too late to show off to you
oh well

all the girls will see all the girls will see
all the girls will see all the girls will see

all the girls will show me theirs
how the story came to be
it came to me
it came to me
don’t thank me
don’t thank me

Rules

tiny defeats in ordinary tasks
things break up
that were only meant to last
can’t take up
when only down is the way
show me how to stretch
and apply your makeup
what can we say

be polite
don’t excite
never fight
always in sight

unraveling is just another one of the those things
you take it
learn from it
nothing to strange

stop and look too long you’ll break the chain
don’t complain
lift up or dump down there’s another below or above
conveyor belt of love

being with you being with you being with you
being with you being with you being with you

it’s better to be with you than to be by myself
hear it out nice and soft
there’s nothing left
throwing rocks off shore
making memories we can’t shake off

i am so happy to be with you
i am so happy to be with you

you’d never know
i’d rather not
they wouldn’t understand
help me tie the knot

is it tight enough is it tight enough is it tight enough
is it tight is it tight is it tight it is it is tis it is it is it is

Don’t Brag About

woke up
just the same as you
maybe different way of messing about
and making it through

the day is bright and young
the night far from scary
teasing and talking
handling papers
waving clearly

what did you do today that made you better than me
what did you do today that made you better than we

let’s get involved
and pour it out
drink most of it now
before the crowd can buy a vowel

you know the way but it’s only meant for two
you see the way but it’s only built for you

so what’s the difference
we all button our shirts up top to bottom
or bottom to top
it doesn’t matter
the jacket covers many a bad thought

i’m only human
some say an animal
so what’s it to you
can you handle

we walk past each other never knowing how to be nice
we walk past each other never knowing how to be nice

kill or excite
thrill and entice
i never was right
planning out my life

but you’re here now
but you’re here now
it’s very clear now
it’s very clear how

don’t hassle me
i may break away
or cut loose
and never have more to say

that’s the past you are the future
i realize my costume
is a way to make it seem
all the progress has been to soon

i can suit ya i will suit ya
i can suit ya i will suit ya

World Women

cash in my chips
to take a trip
find out all the ways
i can say the same thing
in different boats of enlightenment

german girls with their innocence
glowing in disguise
cities modern to rotting
taking pictures behind the night’s eye

above all else you must be loyal to you
and the rest is for the children
and the rest is the the children
we know what you went through

my biggest fear is disappointing you
gonna make a name for myself
and live out the foreign days and months
changing my health

what is up
don’t look around
tall enough to pick you up
and always hold you down

in a way that i have never known
in a way that i have never known

borrowing some money
bet it on the black
double up
add one more
guess that is that

i only wish the best for you
and recognize and recognize and recognize and recognize
and recognize and recognize and recognize and recognize

is this the game
are we ready to reclaim
what’s my name
act insane
get out of the street
you’re a treat
and I’m to blame

Come Back

conversation continues indistinctively
conversation continues away from you and me

when will they change their minds
when is it okay to walk away or run
by definition the worst is yet to come
okay okay okay okay okay okay

tough cookie
such a tough cookie
only then it will be too late
what are you doing here
didn’t i make it clear

do you want to talk about it
do you want to talk about it
do you want to talk about it
do you want to talk about it

shake your ass
cross your legs
make it last
slow to fast

i’ve seen some things in my day
lips still smack when you cross my way
are we leaving it alone
are we leaving it behind

what are we gonna do first
what are we gonna do first

take off the lock
open the door
take a step out
dance until sore

and then repeat and then repeat and then repeat
you used to be so sweet

City Planning

we started going out and enjoying ourselves
the people turned to colors
this world is better each fine day
just don’t tell your brothers

i’m searching high and low
i’m searching high and low
i’m searching high and low

smiles for strangers
walking up and down blocks
are you in danger
morning tea will do

music coming from your ears

i can make a girl cry from talking
thats easy

anyone can do it
i wasnt telling the bad stuff
