It pulls you down before you know it Its gone and youre dead again. Ive been in places and I wont pretend Yeah, I'd make it out just to fall on my head Wake up strange and take the walk downstairs Hit the pawn up on the corner and pay for my rent You know that I could not believe my own truth Just show them what I choose, got nothing to lose Yeah yeah and its O.K. I tie my hands up to a chair so I dont fall that way. Yeah yeah and Im alright. I took a sip of something poison but Ill hold on tight. You know those days when you want to just choose To not get out of bed, you're lost in your head again. You play the game but you kind of cut Cause youre coming down hard and your joints are all stuck. I've tried to say thats not the only way I never knew if I could face myself to change.

Yeah yeah and Im alright. I took a sip of something poison but Ill hold on tight.

"Pumped Up Kicks"

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'd better run, better run, outrun my gun. All the other kids with the pumped up kicks you'd 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'd better run, better run, outrun my gun. All the other kids with the pumped up kicks you'd better run, better run, faster than my bullet. [Whistling] [Chorus: x3] All the other kids with the pumped up kicks you'd better run, better run, outrun my gun. All the other kids with the pumped up kicks you'd better run, better run, faster than my bullet.
