Passion Pit Sleepyhead

And everything is going to the beat

And everything is going to the beat

And everything is going

And you said

It was like fire around the brim

Burning solid

Burning thin the burning rim

Like stars burning holes right through the dark

Flicking fire like saltwater into my eyes

You were one inch from the edge of this bed

I dragged you back a sleepyhead, sleepyhead

They couldn’t think of something to say the day you burst

With all their lions and all their might and all their thirst

They crowd your bedroom like some thoughts wearing thin

Against the walls against your rules against your skin

My beard grew down to the floor and out through the doors

Of your eyes, begonia skies like a sleepyhead, sleepyhead

Go ahead

Passion Pit Make Light

So now we see

Comes burying my burnt remains

These puddled clouds

Oh I, I understand now

But darkness falls likes shattered pieces

Dangling, shimmering

Torn and tattered and crowned

Oh, I’ll not be told, “No”, to “No more”

You must believe to hear me sing these

Messy morsels of my self-assuring love

Oh, it’s painful kneading

Yes, I lie and I wrangle with prospective angles

That glare me down and face me

With all I do wrong

Why do they all look like me?

So I try and I scream and I beg and I sigh

Just to prove I’m alive, and it’s alright

‘Cause tonight there’s a way I’ll make light

Of my treacherous life

If I had hands I’d hold up high

My lofty dreams and my alibi’s real name

But I have no strength

So I toss and I turn and I spit in the urn

There’s a ghost in your eye

There is someone that knows more than I

But I’m quick to deny

So I try and I scream and I beg and I sigh

Just to prove I’m alive, and it’s alright

‘Cause tonight there’s a way I’ll make light

Of my treacherous life, make light

Passion Pit American Blood

Ohh, American Blood,

In my eyes and on my hands,

Such an awful circumstance.

And ohh carry your woes,

Just strike a match and then oppose,

Bluff in bloom nobody knows

And we’re gonna be alright,

And you’re gonna keep me safe this night.

And we’re gonna be alright,

Everything will be quite alright for you and me,

for you and me,

for you and me.

Ohhh, American Blood,

how our love always was young, how it always felt so fun.

And ohh you went to my head,

or my limbs instead you did,

Upside down hanging by a thread.

And we’re gonna be alright,

And you’re gonna keep me safe this night.

And we’re gonna be alright,

Everything will be quite alright for you and me,

for you and me,

for you and me.

What’s it feel like?

What’s it feel like to be alone?

What’s it hurt like?

Does it hurt you because you know,

That all of your blood,

Could probably reach the world in one master wave,

Could reach the highest peak or the deepest cave.

And we’re gonna be alright,

And you’re gonna keep me safe this night.

And we’re gonna be alright,

Everything will be quite alright for you and me,

for you and me,

for you and me.

Every time she traps a lover,

World starts screaming words of love,

And in that tangle you’re just here with me.

Passion Pit Seaweed Song

Some day you’ll see

Surrounded by angels

Floating atop of the sea

Abandon me

Don’t go where they go

Don’t sing all the songs they sing

Nobody knows you

The way you know you

But I think I do

But I thought I knew

Yeah, I thought I knew

Nobody knows you

The way you know you

But I think I do

But I thought I knew

Yeah, I thought I knew

Between these walls

Her back, strange glimpse

Casts shadows frighteningly tall

I slow to a crawl

I jump and I yell

But she hears nothing at all

Nobody knows you

The way you know you

But I think I do

But I thought I knew

Yeah, I thought I knew

Nobody knows you

The way you know you

But I think I do

But I thought I knew

Yeah, I thought I knew

Stay, stay the same

‘Cause everything else will change

And I’ve always been to blame

So please just stay the same

The currents pull me in

The tide has reached my chin

The seaweed tickles skin

Just let the water win

I’m freezing to the bone

You’ll never be at home

Just watch, you’re running out

Just watch your body go

Nobody knows you

The way you know you

But I think I do

But I thought I knew

Yeah, I thought I knew

Nobody knows you

The way you know you

But I think I do

But I thought I knew

Yeah, I thought I knew

Passion Pit You Have The Right

It only went higher with feet to the fire

Your hands on my shoulders, my lips to your hands

And grass so much greener and air that much clearer

You draw your breath nearer wherever I am

How it rose, how it feels in the minor

And desires turned major that say you

Ho oh

You have the right to look away

And take a night or take a day

And time after time it comes to you

How could you barely even choose?

You’ll never win and you will not lose

And time after time I will trust you

It bends at the knees and it sends you its feelings

In packages wrapped with your eyes sung and blue

On choosing the answers, you pray till your hands hurt

No, love’s not an answer till it ends up all loose

Well body rose, body feels in the minor

Biding all of the time till we choose you

You have the right to look away

You may take a night or take a day

And time after time it comes to you

How could you barely ever choose?

You’ll never win and you will not lose

And time after time I will trust you

Passion Pit Swimming In The Flood

My eyes have once again been proven wrong

Your clouds, your blanket and my pity song

Hovering on your front lawn

Carry on until it’s gone

What can I do?

The river’s overrun

We’re swimming in a flood, you know?

I thought I felt your touch

But the water’s rising up

Then I lie naked in a rampage

In the flesh, face to face with the onset

I forget everything that’s ever made me

Rise again

Now slowly leave my memory

What can I do?

The river’s overrun

We’re swimming in a flood, you know?

I thought I felt your touch

But the water’s rising up

Now all my lovers raise their cups

What can I do?

The river’s overrun

We’re swimming in a flood, you know?

I thought I felt your touch

But the water’s rising up

Now all my lovers raise their cups

Passion Pit Until We Can’t

How much can we take before we both break down?

The confines of these rooms, yeah they get you to

Lying in our bed while tossing and turning

And it wakes you up, it puts you in the mood

But that’s alright cause

We both know what the other wants

And it goes to show why we’re not alone

And still we’re here in this God forsaken place

I can hear what you’re saying, I can see it on your face

So let’s go, let’s go ’til we can’t anymore

Let’s go ’til we can’t

Let’s go, let’s go ’til we fall to the floor

Let’s go ’til we can’t

Somebody else told me something about

Where you live can cause you suffering

Guess that’s something else that’s wrong with our room

With the walls colliding

Someone said stop hesitating

We both know we’re suffocating

Let’s go out and find ourselves a home

And find ourselves a home

Honey please, you don’t need to tell me

What we need, yeah we both know that

A bedroom floor with our clothes strewn all about

Yeah we’re stuffed in here together begging for a new way out

So let’s go, let’s go ’til we can’t anymore

Let’s go ’til we can’t

Let’s go, let’s go ’til we fall to the floor

Let’s go ’til we can’t

Somebody else told me something about

Where you live can cause you suffering

Guess that’s something else that’s wrong with our room

With the walls colliding

Someone said stop hesitating

We both know we’re suffocating

Let’s go out and find ourselves a home

And find ourselves a home

We can barely speak, we can barely sleep, now we’re leavin’

Barely take the time, take the time to try

Try to make this living Hell, break this barren shell

Shell it out for something better than we think and better than we ever dreamed

So let’s go, let’s go ’til we can’t anymore

Let’s go ’til we can’t

Let’s go, let’s go ’til we fall to the floor

Let’s go ’til we can’t

Somebody else told me something about

Where you live can cause you suffering

Guess that’s something else that’s wrong with our room

With the walls colliding

Someone said stop hesitating

We both know we’re suffocating

Let’s go out and find ourselves a home

And find ourselves a home
