from Performance by Hey Karen



now is no time for running
now you have got to get it
commence your operations
promise you won't regret it
you've waited for that moment
hidden behind the shadows
dreaming of something better
of green magnetic meadows
leaning towards the future
but trapped inside your past
how long did you think
those empty promises would last
promise you won't regret it
getting way ahead of
all of those people
that have burned a mark
right on your forehead

it’s liberating
to be away from haters
to stay in your lane
commence your operations
why waste your time
those people never loved you
eating your insides
fucking up all your stories
remove yourself
don't drink their dirty posion
they wouldn’t spare
you a thought any longer
its better this way
it’s so electrifying
there’s no shame in justifying
of who’s the lamb and who’s the lion

there’s no shame in justifying
of who’s the lamb and who’s the lion
