Lyrics

  • Hey now take a look at you
    Hosed down, in a million dollar suit

    But I knew you when that wasn’t you
    I knew you when you had a clue

    Big man, driving a big car
    Funny how you can spin so fast so far

    I knew you when was a star
    I knew when no one thought you were

    Ooooh oooooohh
    You cannot be who I thought you were
    Who I thought you were
    No, you can’t be who I thought you were
    Who I thought you were

    I like you more when you poorer
    Your new ID is a borer
    Come back here
    You actin’ like we owe ya
    Are you ever gonna be 
    Who I thought you were

    Last time I tried to call you up
    I couldn’t reach you cuz you were stuck so far up

    I knew you when were just rude
    I knew I loved your attitude

    Five minutes all that you got left
    long way down boy I wouldn’t hold your breath

    I knew you when you knew the time
    I knew for your bottom line

    Ooooh oooooohh
    You cannot be who I thought you were
    Who I thought you were
    No, you can’t be who I thought you were
    Who I thought you were

    I like you more when you poorer
    Your new ID is a borer
    Come back here
    You actin’ like we owe ya
    Are you ever gonna be 
    Who I thought you were

    Now you got a lot of gall
    Tell you frankly I’m appalled
    I know you know better
    Where you going on that ladder?
    Got all the girls runnin’
    They with you
    All of your lackeys
    They’re thirsty and you are too
    You’re enemies
    They tell you it’s all fine
    I tell you better watch it
    Walkin’ a thin line
    Ask if I used to know you
    I don’t know
    Cuz these days it’s like
    It’s just like I never seen your face before

    Ooooh oooooohh
    You cannot be who I thought you were
    Who I thought you were
    No, you can’t be who I thought you were
    Who I thought you were

    I like you more when you poorer
    Your new ID is a borer
    Come back here
    You actin’ like we owe ya
    Are you ever gonna be 
    Who I thought you were

    I don't like you
    I don't like you

  • VERSE:
    360, 5 left, I’m counting it to the day
    I’m thinking if I did everything I said, or if the year got the best of me
    One thing about time, it waits for nobody, you told me, isn’t that what they say
    Been batting ‘gainst it and getting nowhere, just racin’ got nothing to say to nobody
    Little lady you better get in line, now I’m talking this to myself
    better get in on down with the program, don’t sell your
    lot for an old broke dream they been sellin ya
    free fallin like Tom Petty, waitin on this rodeo to haul
    I break my own rules, steal my way home, and guard the still there like a beast

    CHORUS:
    We race the globe
    the shakers and the fools
    we trouble you know
    you’ll find us were we fall, we chasing shadows

    and I can’t have it, have it any other way
    and I can’t have it, have it any other way
    I’m not gon’ have it, have it any other way
    and I can’t have it, have it any other way

    POST:
    Always knew I’d be international
    No fear of flying
    Limousines, big people, their parties
    But I’m on an island
    Watching through a window
    The flashing light on the bed
    Neon sign goes red
    “You Are Here” it says
    well, at least someone knows where I am

    VERSE:
    Maybe I will get it wrong, no patience for myself
    Selling years of ideas ‘til I’m old, a living on the shelf
    I won’t follow I’m taking the long way, my standards hold me up
    why they eating they idols up
    now why they eating they idols up, damnit
    I give ‘em my heart in words will they remember me
    I’ll leave ‘em alone and time’ll want to smother what I say
    I round another year and wonder did I go someplace
    I’m bucking this one down, this one right here won’t walk away

    CHORUS:
    We race the globe
    the shakers and the fools
    we trouble you know
    you’ll find us were we fall, we chasing shadows

    and I can’t have it, have it any other way
    and I can’t have it, have it any other way
    I’m not gon’ have it, have it any other way
    and I can’t have it, have it any other way

  • Hello
    What is going on, something strange 
    Where do I go, it’s coming round to meet me
    I’ve gone around the world two times
    To find something to save me here
    But these days, it seems I’m of a different kind

    It may not be safe
    but can’t hide from what will come
    And it may not be sane
    But I’m going out there
    It may not be made for me
    Lord knows what I will dare to find
    But these days 
    You can’t run from the races 

    I said who
    Told you you could get a piece of my heart
    Cuz you see I’m no runaway
    So go ahead, I’m gonna give you a head start

    I said who
    Told you you could get a piece of my heart
    Cuz you see I’m no runaway
    So go ahead, I’m gonna give you a head start

    Hello,
    I’ve come a long way to find this place
    And what it’s come to, build it all on body not faith
    Say it’ll be that tie you break
    When the hallowed spark will find you
    So if I wanna steep up the dream
    Gotta take my place out on the line

    It may not be safe
    but can’t hide from what will come
    And it may not be sane
    But I’m going out there
    It may not be made for me
    Lord knows what I will dare to find
    But these days You can’t run from the races 

    I said who
    Told you you could get a piece of my heart
    Cuz you see I’m no runaway
    So go ahead, I’m gonna give you a head start

    I said who
    Told you you could get a piece of my heart
    Cuz you see I’m no runaway
    So go ahead, I’m gonna give you a head start

    Steady, don’t ease up
    Get in my game
    Can you see me now

    Lookin both ways
    All night, dreamin I’d
    Taken the race

    Headin’ out, do you not
    see in my face
    I’m not playin’ I’m
    ‘a push it all day
    Head down, feet forward
    Edge of my faith

  • The striker’s on the take
    All he sees, the throne
    Seize the bone
    That child is born again 
    Throw it away
    They throw it away

    I tried to warn say
    I tried to warn say
    We’re going to war

    if you throw it away

    I tried to warn, say you’ll bring it home
    bring it home again

    And we gonna waste away
    we gon’ waste away
    we gon’ waste away

    And we gonna waste away
    we gon’ waste away
    we gon’ waste away

    Outside the war
    Outside the war
    Outside the war
    Outside the war

    Don’t bring it home

    Ooooooohhhh

    The dike is ‘bout to break
    And the sea is flowing
    I see it coming
    That fright is moving in
    Hold it at bay
    I hold it at bay

    I tried it on today
    Was like I was born again
    To the core
    Cold as the day
    I tried to warn, say you’ll bring it home
    bring it home again

    Now we gonna waste away
    we gon’ waste away
    we gon’ waste away

    Now we gonna waste away
    we gon’ waste away
    we gon’ waste away

    Outside the war
    Outside the war
    Outside the war
    Outside the war

    Don’t bring it home

    Ooooooohhhh

    I tried to warn 
    Don’t want to see it come in
    Then there wont be anything

    Outside the War

    Then there wont, then there wont, then there wont

    See you’re a window
    It blows through the window, outside the war

    And we’re gonna waste away

    Outside the war
    Not anymore

  • I should ask
    But don’t want to know
    How you get something
    For nothing at all
    Build an empire for yourself
    Don’t take this personal
    Go to hell

    You want it, you got it
    Come get it
    I’ll see you there

    You want it, you got it
    Come get it

    Put all I got in your way, I’ll put all I got in your way
    Put all I got in your way, I’ll put all I got in your way

    Dum dum dum da dum da dum heya
    Dum dum dum da heya heya heya

    Why should I perspire the most
    I cut ‘em down
    You play the post
    Make believe, live your motto
    Surround yourself with smarter folk

    You want it, you got it
    Come get it
    I’ll see you there

    You want it, you got it
    Come get it

    Put all I got in your way, I’ll put all I got in your way
    Put all I got in your way, I’ll put all I got in your way

    I’m here scraping away
    Still no trace of dignity
    Crowd’s out they got it hard for ‘em
    So devout they’ll take an eye for it
    I live for the grim encore
    Say no more

    Put all I got in your way, I’ll put all I got in your way
    Put all I got in your way, I’ll put all I got in your way

    I’m gonna knock you down baby
    Ain’t gonna leave ya ‘til I bring you down low
    Not gon’ get ahead now
    Can’t get ahead now, can’t get ahead now
    I’m gonna bring you right down to your knees

  • I want it sometimes…

    I never wanted much
    I never complained
    Only want a little love
    Sometimes

    I just need a little touch
    A Little color on a greyscale
    Or I forget to inhale sometimes

    Now I don’t even know 
    If you want to stay
    Saw you when it all burned down
    That look was on your face 
    Now you want to save this house
    Well it’s far too late
    Oh you want to be my healer
    Now that I’m up in flames

    But I was burned before the fire
    But I was burned before the fire

    I don’t have another heart
    Don’t remember how to say
    I don’t want you to let me down
    Sometimes 

    I already know this part
    Leave it for another day
    Wish it wasn’t this hard
    Sometimes

    Now I don’t even know 
    If you want to stay
    Saw you when it all burned down
    That look was on your face 
    Now you want to save this house
    Well it’s far too late
    Oh you want to be my healer
    Now that I’m up in flames

    But I was burned before the fire
    But I was burned before the fire
    But I was burned before the fire
    But I was burned before the fire

  • Walk out on the deck
    Manolos and cigarettes
    Lookin out from here wondering how far I could get
    Running in the circles where the chips are legit
    Workin’ it, I know it ain’t an easy ticket

    And so I take it to the Avenues
    Looking all confident
    Tell ya that I used to question what it was
    Make ‘em incontinent

    I once thought they’d all talk about the dress I wore tonight
    I mistook all those looks, not for the girl just for the hype

    But the one good thing, nipped or tucked
    You cannot change your luck
    shake it up, just so the thrill don’t stop
    cuz when we get stuck
    we say that’s all it was?\
    All it was

    I say come on down
    We’ll sashay through town
    They call me the Rendezvous girl
    Got more power in my calendar
    Than the queen herself

    Come on down
    We’ll sashay through town
    They call me the Rendezvous girl
    Got more power in my calendar
    Than the queen herself

    I got a problem can’t get past it
    I’ll put a man in a casket
    I got another thinkin’ he’s in love
    I break it to ‘em with a velvet glove

    Warning I’m hot to trot you gonna hurt yourself
    I know the hunt it can be beautiful

    But the one good thing, nipped or tucked
    You cannot change your luck
    shake it up, just so the thrill don’t stop
    cuz when we get stuck
    we say that’s all it was?
    All it was

    I say come on down
    We’ll sashay through town
    They call me the Rendezvous girl
    Got more power in my calendar
    Than the queen herself

    Come on down
    We’ll sashay through town
    They call me the Rendezvous girl
    Got more power in my calendar
    Than the queen herself

    Hear what I told ya
    Want to make them adore ya

    Come on down
    We’ll sashay through town
    They call me the Rendezvous girl
    Got more power in my calendar
    Than the queen herself

    Come on down
    We’ll sashay through town
    They call me the Rendezvous girl
    Got more power in my calendar
    Than the queen herself

  • Walking in a circle
    I must have over shot my destiny
     
    Keep hitting the hurdles
    They drive them mothers right into to me  
     
    Think I’m a sadist need no rescue
    Feel like I’m buying into something 
     
    when you’re in you just accept the order
    you know it’s futile now to turn around
     
    Walking in a circle
    Not gone let them get the best of me
     
    My magic is eternal 
    I got some tricks, I keep ‘em up my sleeve
     
    Hey zombie
    Look at what it’s come to
    You’re livin’ in an empty dream
     
    And here I am right here among you
    Awake but don’t know what it means
     
    I’m here on my own
    and here they come
    I’m Hades ride home tonight
    here they come to spite
     
    When the lights go out 
    I am a seer and I know my way out 
    I always hate it that they make it so complicated
    Only when the lights go out 
     
    When the lights go out
    I disappear and I know what it's all about
    It's overrated the upgrade is
    oh it suffocates you
    Only when the lights go out
     
    Walking in a circle
    Not gone let them get the best of me
     
    My magic is eternal 
    I got some tricks, I keep ‘em up my sleeve

    Look at what it’s come to
    You’re livin’ in an empty dream

    It's overrated the upgrade is
    oh it suffocates you
    Only when the lights go out
     
    Now every time I turn around
    I can’t tell if I’m near or far
    Been searching for it for sometime now
    Still no light ahead of me, still no light ahead of me
     
    If I built a fortress will they call me queen
    If it’s built of lies it won’t mean a thing
    Nobody’s counting ‘round here no more
    Out of touch, what we aiming for
    Out of touch, what I came here for?
     
    When the lights go out
     I am a seer and I know my way out
     I always hate it that they make it 
    so complicated
    Only when the lights go out 
     
    When the lights go out
    I disappear and I know what it's all about
    It's overrated the upgrade is
    oh it suffocates you
    Only when the lights go out

    [Verse 2]
    Mama taking what she want
    Mama taking what she want
    If ya wait and see, with no army she win
    Get what she want
    Baby cry, she hush him up
    Hubby think he run the show
    Go to work, she wreckin' shit like a bulldozer, rake it up

    [Pre-Chorus 2]
    And I know it's heavy, heavy, heavy
    Cause I shoot straight and I shoot steady, steady, steady
    Maybe you underestimate me, maybe, maybe
    I got it, you can come and get it, get it, get it

    [Chorus]
    Big boss, big time business
    Make me your mark and I'll take you one by one
    Like a big boss, big time business
    Make me your mark and I'll take you one by one
    Big boss, big time business
    Make me your mark and I'll take you one by one
    Like a big boss, big time business
    Make me your mark and I'll take you one by one

    [Post-Chorus]
    I got the mouth full of venom
    I got the key to the system
    I got the beats, let it hit them
    I got it all, wanna get some?

    [Bridge]
    Don’t got no time for your huffin’
    Don’t got no time for your bark
    Know when I want to, I’m take ya
    And it don’t matter who you are, I gotta tell you

    [Chorus]
    Big boss, big time business
    Make me your mark and I'll take you one by one
    Like a big boss, big time business
    Make me your mark and I'll take you one by one
    Big boss, big time business
    Make me your mark and I'll take you one by one
    Like a big boss, big time business
    Make me your mark and I'll take you one by one

    [Post-Chorus]
    I got the mouth full of venom
    I got the key to the system
    I got the beats, let it hit them
    I got it all, wanna get some?

    Oooh woah oh oooh, oooh
    I can’t get enough of myself

    [Verse 1]
    If I wasn’t me, I can be sure I'd wanna be
    I’m pretty major and I’ll say it out loud
    Living a, living a fantasy
    Live in, I live in my vanity
    Hey mom, hey do you see me now

    Look at my neighbours I'm the best thing around

    Hey mom, hey do you see me now

    [Pre-Chorus]

    Ain't a gambler but honey I'd put money on myself
    All I wanna do is bottle it to sell
    Cause my brand of vainglory is much better for your health

    All they've said it's true

    Ha ha, funny me, life of the party, VIP
    Got so much flavor, put me on the buffet
    Look at them, look at them liking me
    Look at them, look, what a sight to see
    So hot, they be wiping me down

    [Verse 4]
    Who now could it be, calling the paparazzi
    Well, since you're here now, baby, fire away
    Look at them, look at them liking me
    Look at them, look, what a sight to see
    So hot, they be wiping me down

    [Pre-Chorus]
    All I wanna do is what I do well

    Got me a ticket, I’m eating it up
    My life’s a party, I’m filling my cup
