Lyrics:

Wading in the sea You and me were a dream That i just can’t seem to touch Before you make me you make me wake up Driving from the scene of the crime Changing lanes changing lives This blood red sky They told me knowing they told me no would be fine Wading in the sea You and me were a dream You told me that your heart You told me that your heart was no one’s When you knew that wasn’t true You just tried to trick me into not loving you x3

Lyrics:

I’ve been awake for days just trying to get my head straight. Isn’t there any shame isn’t there any endgame. Isn’t there any way. I’ve asleep for weeks just running through my bad dreams. Oh how it bothers me this empty space in me. There’s nothing in between there’s nothing underneath. There’s nothing underneath x2. We bleed you dry spread like fire creatures of the night. We never run we never ever see the sun x4.

Bad Kids (Explicit Lyrics) Under Pressure, Over Time
03:49

Lyrics:

I used to be a bad kid, used to be bad news. I used to get my kicks, used to get in my moods. We used to get thrown out, we used to fuck around. Six drinks in the hole, and im still drinking now. But I'm ok this way, even though it fades, it took me 24 years to say. Sometimes I think you're the only good thing I've got. Steady at the reins you're the hero I know I'm not. And I've heard that diamonds are made under pressure and over time. And I've heard the fine words you say, learned my lessons and drawn the line.

Lyrics:

If there's a reason we live, I think I've found a thread of what it is. You know the thrill of the chase will grow an inverted frown on your face. I bought a plastic excuse, it was so cheap but it was easy to use. I carved a notch in the paint, once it was deep but now its lost in the fray. I would have cut my hands right off if I thought that that could make it stop. I would have turned this robot on if I thought he had the legs to run.

Lyrics:

You wonder what you’re like on your own. But you know that the medicine just won’t let you know. You struggle for a moment alone. Too bad that the medicine never lets you go. You wondered how you gonna pass the time. You make it all about the benefits don’t you, you decide. You’re waiting for a moment divine. Til then you’ve got the medicine, little reds and whites. We can open our hands. We can sail out to sea. We can be like the kids in the sixties used to be. And you’ll know you’re alright. If you follow my lead. You can let it all out let it all out let it all out now.

Lyrics:

I see it; I just haven't got a name for it. But if I know you, you will collapse under the weight of this. I am not your friend; just someone who listens. I hear you, I really try to make it count. But if I needed you to help me, I know you wouldn't be around, so now...

Lyrics:

Laying low sleeping tigers. It’s not time for you to fight yet. See the rainfall better reason. And your little hands will have the season. You get one chance to build a house of cards. And the freeing lands will never be apart. No bad dreams when all her teeth fall out. And so it seems that now. My love, she’s something I don’t get. My love, she held on with both hands. What I loved about you I found in someone new. My therapist thinks that isn’t safe to do. But I don’t listen, just pretend that I agree. Inside a concrete box you come in all dim and, Retribution’s not a needed and they put. Monsters in boxes cause they don’t understand. Cause they don’t know. My love, she’s something I don’t get. My love, she held on with both hands. My love, I think I’ll kill again. My love, I don’t think they fixed this. I know that soon it’s gonna come for me. Some call it death I call it company. And they talk about it like it’s no big thing. Fuck it’s supposed to be sad I’m supposed to be leaving. Supposed to be sad I’m supposed to be leaving. What I loved about you I found in someone new. What I loved about you. My love, she’s something I don’t get. My love, she held on with both hands. My love, I think I’ll kill again. My love, I don’t think they fixed this.

Lyrics:

We set it off, and we let it run, waiting for the rain to come. And we're ready for the setting sun, wait for the chains to come undone. If help doesn't come, then it's all on us, to stack the bricks and paint the rust. This leap of faith, that I'm about to make; this saving grace, it went up in flames. If god is gone, and logic's on, we are the only ones. And we're so far from what we gave up, only to leave the ones we love. Rehearse the lines in your mind little white lies, promise that you're going to do it better next time. These are the reasons I, am in this state of decline. Can't just leave open doors, they itch like open sores. There must be so much more. Without the moments that we shine, we might as well be chalk outlines. Think it's time for us to realise, we could be happy all the time.
