The Defeat Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
There is no rush when you don't belong
Turns out we don't all fight like dogs in the end
Most of us want to roll out, roll under the grass
You an endless cartoon, no bridge in your song
Spirulina won't kill my heartbreak
I was a dreamer when I learned to take
In between her and a fireplace
There are factors that condition me something and can I pay?
(Pay)
And the blank ones cartwheel out of the furnace
The mold never cracked, you see
The girls in the song remain
Still sleep on their backs
Understood a fact
When you spoke in all your marvelous ideologies
The world is always at ease, at ease, at ease
Don't you see?
And the deaths on the highways
From drink in the casinos
Feels so natural
Every day a dice roll, everywhere you gamble
Wearing something I can handle
And the world ??? our savior
We are taught to savor everyone else's failures
Endlessly
Even the greatest, the very, very greatest
Gave up, tapped out
Told all you fuckers to lie down
Yet, still you found cathedrals of deceit
Where does the robber go
Where does the robber go to repent?
Tell me
Verse 2
Tell anyone you wouldn't buy a round
For your best friend
See it's trickled down on you
I don't depend, there you go, then
Buy another round
Buy infinitum
Bye, there you go and bye
It's such a happy sound
There is no rush when you don't belong
Turns out we don't all fight like dogs in the end
Most of us want to roll out, roll under the grass
You endless cartoon, no bridge in your song
Make me wonder again
Or make me learn to pretend
Make me wonder again
Or make me learn to pretend
Make me wonder again
Or make me learn to pretend
