lyrics

[Intro: JJ]
Oh, now darling don’t you cry no more
Tears over me because you’ve fallen
for a girl you put up on a pedestal

[Verse One: E. Oks]
It’s like, if you look at a light for too long?
Or real short up up at one that’s too strong.
Then you turn your head away just to find it’s still there
Fluttering on that blank wall that’s in front of you with a frilled flair…

It’s like, if you look at a light for too long?
Or real short up up at one that’s too strong.
Then you turn your head away just to find it’s still there
Fluttering on that blank wall that’s in front of you with a frilled flair…

You think it’s really there so you wanna touch it
but it doesn’t work and so now you fussing,
and you look at the light. You Look at the light. Look at the light.
and It’s. it’s. it’s like, if you look at a light for too long?
Or real short up up at one that’s too strong.
And there was that one time, that you grabbed it, right?
Snorted it down and of course it felt so good,
light was coursing how it should,
‘till your central sun summoned a bang,
then spun to a ball and dissolved to nothing as it sang…

[Chorus: JJ & E. Oks]
Oh, now darling don’t you cry no more (now everybody getting hyped)
Tears over me because you’ve fallen
for a girl you put up on a pedestal
Oh, now darling don’t you cry no more (now everybody getting hyped)
Tears over me because you’ve fallen
for a girl you put up on a pedestal

[Verse Two: E. Oks]
You think cocaine’s gonna save you?
Powder your nose with the soul-suckingest black hole
Until your whole brain isn’t able
To produce enough dopeamine to show you Cherkira’s laugh?
(fuck, lemme hear that back?)
You think cocaine’s gonna save you?
Power down loan roads so dozed I woulda go’d
But no you didn’t invite me,
Said you thought I’d be mad,
And yeah I might be
(yo, man…that ain’t right G)
There ain’t a song that I can write you
To make you feel like I do
But I got a feeling that I’ll fail if I do
Not show you there’s nothing you lack son.
(na, fuck, that’s wack son)
You don’t think I feel empty too?
You just ain’t there for the alone moments
To see what my empty do
It’s true that I’ve broken free
And tuned into a One Love
That I’ve only failed to spoke on
Cause it’s something that you showed to me

[Chorus: JJ & E. Oks]
Oh, now darling don’t you cry no more
(you heard that? I said it’s something that you showed to me)
Tears over me because you’ve fallen
(Bro. Homie. That DoubleOne love is something that you showed to me!)
for a girl you put up on a pedestal
(I said it’s something that you showed to me)
Oh, now darling don’t you cry no more
(It’s something that you showed to me!)
Tears over me because you’ve fallen
for a girl you put up on a pedestal

[Verse Three: E. Oks]
Light stain make me hate my self…
Light stain suffocate my love…
But you see the light stain
It look so real.
Feel I need it now.
Can’t cease feel the need Feed it down (down, down, down)
But wait how can I grab it?
An infinite worm hole done grounded my rabbit,
Watch molded nouns
Loop round into habits
The back itch bound to be
Found up in a mattress.
Mind stained
by Iphone game up in they tablets.
Passing a passenger on a platform
But she don’t see me at all,
All of her eyeball collapsed up into a black hole
But, well, I aint mad…
Light stain make me hate my now (yeah yeah yeah)
Light stain suffocate my love (yeah yeah yeah)
And who could I might blame?
Besides all of the carrot-like-light-stains
that hover like bright stars
and stay me out late night. (wooo-ooooo-ooooo)
Off and on I often had had it
forgotten all dissolves except for all of the (wooo-ooooo-eeeee)
great-light-watcher that will solvent my addict (woooo-ooooo-ooooo)
(like) Like love.

[Outro: JJ]
She ain’t real, wooah.
She ain’t real. No. No. No.
