with the sunrise brings the day and light
but i am the sunset
it’s time i awake to a brand new day
i won’t move to lay again
what made you think that i’d be laid to the ground so easily?
can i say, your eyes, they caught me
i stare so inconspicuously
your legs can balance with the sea
my words will only make you dream
your friends, they up and ate me
through titanic tummies i’m swimming
o my friends on quick-sinking sand:
quench your thirst with such demand
for things will get so hot and heavy
i’m always there for you, i’m ready
i take things one step further
it’s two steps back from you, you pester
and i know we’re better than this
i know we’re brighter than this
i know we’re bolder, smarter than this
when things got so much better
we seemed to fall even lower
you’re out on the town
you’re wearing your gown to cover your crown
don’t make a sound
and I’d like to see you try to hold me down
why don’t you hold me down?
hold me now
