Banks Before I Ever Met You

[Verse 1:]

Everyone knows I’m right about one thing

You and I don’t work out

You bring out the mean in me

I bring out your insecurities

You know what I am talking bout

Eventually you’ll be fine if we break up

And one day I’ll be fine too

But we should just end it now

Before someone gets more hurt than they have to

[Chorus:]

As for our house, I’ll move out

You can keep the dog we trained

Things soon will be like before I ever met you

Before I ever met you

Before I ever met you

I never knew that my heart could love so hard

Before I ever met you

I never knew I would be enemies with disregard

Before I ever met you

I never knew that I liked to be kissed for days

Before I ever met you

I never knew I could be broken in so many ways

I never knew I could be broken in so many ways

I never knew I could be broken in so many

[Verse 2:]

Everyone knows I’m right about one thing

You are my only vice

And I got you addicted to trying to be bulletproof

But you have too much to lose

[Chorus]

Everyone knows I’m right about one thing

You and I don’t work out

Banks Beggin For Thread

So I got edges that scratch

And sometimes I don’t got a filter

But I’m so tired of eating all of my misspoken words

I know my disposition gets confusing

My disproportionate reactions fuse with my eager state

That’s why you wanna come out and play with me

Yeah

Why

Why

Why

Stooped down and out

You got me beggin for thread

To sew this hole up that you ripped in my head

Stupidly think you had it under control

Strapped down to something that you don’t understand

Don’t know what you were getting yourself into

You should have known

Secretly, I think you knew

I got some dirt on my shoes

My words can come out as a pistol

And I’m no good at aiming

But I can aim it at you

I know my actions, they may get confusing

But my unstable ways is my solution to even space

That’s why you wanna come out and play with me, yeah

Stooped down and out

You got me beggin for thread

To sew this hole up that you ripped in my head

Stupidly think you had it under control

Strapped down to something that you don’t understand

Don’t know what you were getting yourself into

You should have known

Secretly, I think you knew

(Secretly I think you knew)

Hold it out, whoa

Try to hide it out but my tracks are better

Hold it out, whoa

Try to hide it out but my tracks are better

Hold it out, whoa

Try to hide it out but my tracks are better

Hold it out, whoa

Try to hide it out but my tracks are better

Stooped down and out

You got me beggin for thread

To sew this hole up that you ripped in my head

Stupidly think you had it under control

Strapped down to something that you don’t understand

Don’t know what you were getting yourself into

You should have known

Secretly, I think you knew

(Secretly I think you knew)

Banks Fuck With Myself

I got two diamonds and a feather

Gimme three reasons why we ain’t together

I push my body through the floor like

Cause I fuck with myself more than anybody else

You’re on the corner waiting for my love

I put two walls behind you just to lean on

You’re gonna need em cuz I stood you up

Cause I fuck with myself more than anybody else

Cuz I fuck with myself more than anybody else

It’s all love

I used to care what you think about me

It’s all love

Cause my love so good

So I fuck with myself more than anybody else

I caught you fishing through the fodder

This whole relationship is under water

You’re facing ages in your third strike

Cause I fuck with myself more than anybody else

Cause I fuck with myself more than anybody else

It’s all love

I used to care what you think about me

It’s all love

Cause my love so good

So I fuck with myself more than anybody else

Your words would burn me in the third degree

Now baby look what it’s come to

Cause my love is the one

My love is the one

So I fuck with myself more than anybody else

It’s all love

I used to care what you think about me

It’s all love

Cause my love so good

So I fuck with myself more than anybody else

Banks Haunt

What do you want? I wanna know

You messed me up when you let me go

Now you come back ’cause your ego is stroked

From the way that I cracked after you let me go

And I know the things that we could be

But I wish you woulda cheated on me

‘Cause at least I wouldn’t have you haunting me

Now you’re haunting me, babe

What do you want? I wanna know

I brought a dandelion you could blow

While you stay mourning for something creative

But memories baited from your loneliness, I see

And I know the things that we could be

But I wish you woulda cheated on me

‘Cause at least I wouldn’t have you haunting me

Now you’re haunting me, babe

It’s like I wanna know I’m someone

It’s like I wanna know I’m some

Someone you have to keep, I’m on my knees

Turn the lights out on me, the lights out on me

I’m blacked out

I see again, you make me wait

You make me wait, dangling on a string

Begging for you to come back to the ring

‘Til I’m salivating for attention that you won’t bring

And I know the things that we could be

But I wish you woulda cheated on me

‘Cause at least I wouldn’t have you haunting me

Now you’re haunting me, babe

You won’t come back, you’re not coming

I waited up to say your name

You won’t come back, you’re not coming

I waited up for you to say my name

You won’t come back, you’re not coming

I waited up to say your name

You won’t come back, you’re not coming

I waited up for you to say my name

It’s like I wanna know I’m someone

It’s like I wanna know I’m some

Someone you have to keep, I’m on my knees

Turn the lights out on me, the lights out on me

I’m blacked out

Banks Mind Games

I foresee it’s true, that you would love me better

If I couldn’t screw

All your moves that make me wanna run away

But I got stuck with faulty legs

I believe it’s true that you would screw me

If I let you in my bedroom

And if I did then do I try to move away?

Cause I know you like mind games

Do I ever have to notice?

I’ve been standing here and I don’t know why

Did you ever even see me try?

Do you-oh-oh, see me now?

Do you-oh-oh, see me now?

Do you-oh-oh, see me now?

See me now, see me now, oh, see me now?

Oh-oh-oh-oh-oh…

Better look amusing cause my addiction to

These contradictions make it confusing

And if I walk away I’m scared I will find other muses

Cause I know you like olden days

I don’t understand, you claim that I’m a handful

When you show up all empty-handed

The way you say you love me

Like you’ve just been reprimanded

Cause I know you like mind games

Do I ever have to notice?

I’ve been standing here and I don’t know why

Did you ever even see me try?

Do you-oh-oh, see me now?

Do you-oh-oh, see me now?

Do you-oh-oh, see me now?

See me now, see me now, oh, see me now?

Do you-oh-oh, see me now?

Do you-oh-oh, see me now?

Do you-oh-oh, see me now?

See me now, see me now, see me now?

Oh-oh-oh-oh-oh…

Do you, oh, oh

Do you, oh, oh

Do you, oh, oh

See me now, see me now, see me now?

Banks Judas

Hey, hey, hey, hey

Never came around to make this house into a home

Put you on a pedestal and sat you on a throne

I found all your skeletons, your closet full of bones

I see you take pride in bloody eyes, I know you’re stoned

I can hear resentment in your tone

Said I’d never make it on my own

Maybe I’m just better off alone

Too dumb to deal

Too numb to feel the knife in my back

Judas, hey

Oh, oh, Judas, hey

Judas, hey

Oh, oh, Judas, hey

I can see you coming from about a mile away

And all the mystique of your pretentiousness is fading

Reminiscing all the backwards ways you’d make me stay (Stay!)

Begging me for thread, I think you need to change your brain (Oh)

I can hear resentment in your tone (oh)

Said I’d never make it on my own (oh)

Maybe I’m just better off alone (oh)

Too numb to deal

Too numb to feel the knife in my back

Judas, hey

Oh, oh, Judas, hey

Judas, hey

Oh, oh, Judas, hey

Don’t need you to make an effort, this should be effortless

Nothing can last forever, and you’re such a pessimist

I was your prized possession, and who was your exorcist?

Thought you was heaven-sent

You left for the hell of it

I can hear resentment in your tone (oh)

Said I’d never make it on my own (oh)

Maybe I’m just better off alone

Too dumb to deal

Too numb to feel the knife in my back

Judas, hey

Oh, oh, Judas, hey

Judas, hey

Oh, oh, Judas, hey

Judas, hey

Oh, oh, Judas, hey

Judas, hey

Oh, oh, Judas, hey

Hey, hey, hey, hey

Hey, hey, hey, hey

Banks Brain

But it’s all the same

I could have foreseen

That you would act like you are

Oh so cool you seem

Blending with that scene

Wearing what you think is hard

I can see you struggling

Boy, don’t hurt your brain

Thinking what you’re gonna say

Cause everything’s a game

Always trying to calculate

Trying to look smart but not too smart

To threaten anything they say

But it’s all the same

I could have foreseen

That you would act like you are

Oh so cool you seem

Blending with that scene

Wearing what you think is hard

I can see you struggling

Boy, don’t hurt your brain

Thinking what you’re gonna say

Cause everything’s a game

Always trying to calculate

Trying to look smart but not too smart

To threaten everything they say

Banks Goddess

She gave it all, you gave her shit

She coulda done, just anything

Or anyone, cause she’s a goddess

You never got this

You put her down, you liked her hopeless

To walk around, feeling unnoticed

You shoulda crowned her, cause she’s a goddess

You never got this

Now you gotta deal with this glitch on your shoulder

Fuckin’ with a goddess and you get a little colder

Yeah it’s colder, colder

Fuckin’ with a goddess, and you get a little colder

Finally surfaced above the downs

Feeling her boldest, she came around

Cause she’s a goddess, finally saw this

And now you’re back, trying to claim her

Cause she’s gone and now without her

You’re all alone, cause she’s a goddess

You shoulda saw this

Now you gotta deal with this glitch on your shoulder

Fuckin’ with a goddess and you get a little colder

Yeah it’s colder, colder

Fuckin’ with a goddess, and you get a little colder

Now you gotta deal with this glitch on your shoulder

Fuckin’ with a goddess and you get a little colder

Yeah it’s colder, colder

Fuckin’ with a goddess, and you get a little colder

Now you gotta live with this glitch on your shoulder

You’re fuckin’ with a goddess and you get a little colder

Yeah you’re colder, colder

You’re fuckin’ with a goddess, and you get a little colder
