lyrics

‘Bout to ditch the cell phone at home and keep breezy

Take this day and everything in it without reachin’

Hey, it’s a short walk to the coffeeshop,

May be Monday, but I’ma treat it like the weekend
Don’t go lookin’ like you got somethin’ to defend
I’m surprised y’all haven’t learned to leap the street width
What’s the matter captain, wonderin’ where your team went
Ran outta good pleas, they ran outta good reason

Good evening, let’s pick it up before you dumb it down
The truth never made the talk of the town
I took a good look, watched the rest jump and drown
Planted where I stand, Lazlo from the ground
Got it wrapped like medieval wedding gowns
More frequent a sequence than handshakes and pounds
The flame outlasts your smoke break burnin’ out
Mirror of the city, spirit of the sound

Chorus
And I’m runnin’ and livin’ and takin’ and givin’ it
Doin’ whatever I can to make it happen
Writin’ and pavin’ and fightin’ and takin’
A deep breath to blow fire back at the drago

I quit the team and signed on as the mascot
Photoshopped my face from the front to the backdrop
The unlikely lyricist that can’t stop
Cos’ my bike doesn’t have any breaks, now back up
Gonna go big if I’m goin’ downhill
Can’t take a sip and promise that you won’t spill
The risk never outweighed the direction
And built these beautiful imperfections

Monday mornings, overtime pay, skippin’ classes
Understanding the big picture doesn’t have a canvas
Stealin’ a bike to get to where you’re goin’
And ridin’ into oncoming traffic
Calm under the chaos cos’ the natural habitat is havoc
Working nothin’ to lose as an advantage
So here it goes, grab somethin’ and sit tight
I’ll hit you with a text somewhere in midflight

Chorus

Bridge
You can’t keep a good man down,
No matter how clever, you’ll never keep a goo man down
You can’t keep a good man down,
No matter how clever, you’ll never keep a goo man down
You can’t keep a good man down,
No matter how clever, you’ll never keep a goo man down
You can’t keep a good man down,
No matter how clever, you’ll never keep a goo man down
