Lyrics

I just wanna stay in the sun, where I find
I know it's hard sometimes
Pieces of peace in the sun's peace of mind
I know it's hard sometimes
Yeah, I think about the end just way too much
But it's fun to fantasize
On my enemies who wouldn't wish who I was
But it's fun to fantasize

Oh-ooh-oh-ooh-oh-ooh
Oh-ooh-oh-ooh-oh-ooh
I'm fallin', so I'm takin' my time on my ride
Oh-ooh-oh-ooh-oh
I'm fallin', so I'm takin' my time on my ride
Takin' my time on my ride

"I'd die for you," that's easy to say
We have a list of people that we would take
A bullet for them, a bullet for you
A bullet for everybody in this room
But I don't seem to see many bullets comin' through
See many bullets comin' through
Metaphorically, I'm the man
But literally, I don't know what I'd do
"I'd live for you," and that's hard to do
Even harder to say when you know it's not true
Even harder to write when you know that tonight
There were people back home who tried talking to you
But then you ignored them, still
All these questions, they're for real
Like, "Who would you live for?"
"Who would you die for?"
And, "Would you ever kill?"

Oh-ooh-oh-ooh-oh-ooh
Oh-ooh-oh-ooh-oh-ooh
I'm fallin', so I'm takin' my time on my ride
Oh-ooh-oh-ooh-oh
I'm fallin', so I'm takin' my time on my ride
Takin' my time on my ride

I've been thinkin' too much
I've been thinkin' too much
I've been thinkin' too much
I've been thinkin' too much
Help me
I've been thinkin' too much (I've been thinkin' too much)
I've been thinkin' too much (Help me)
I've been thinkin' too much (I've been thinkin' too much)
I've been thinkin' too much

Oh-ooh-oh-ooh-oh-ooh
Oh-ooh-oh-ooh-oh-ooh
I'm fallin', so I'm takin' my time on my ride
Oh-ooh-oh-ooh-oh
I'm fallin', so I'm takin' my time on my ride
Takin' my time on my ride

Oh-ooh-oh-ooh-oh-ooh
Oh-ooh-oh-ooh-oh-ooh
I'm fallin', so I'm takin' my time on my ride
Oh-ooh-oh-ooh-oh
I'm fallin', so I'm takin' my time on my

I've been thinkin' too much
Help me
I've been thinkin' too much
Help me
(I've been thinkin' too much)
I've been thinkin' too much
(I've been thinkin' too much)
Help me
(I've been thinkin' too much)
I've been thinkin' too much
(I've been thinkin' too much)
Help me
