Foster The People – Goats In Trees lyrics

Well I was caught inside the wreck
Never found my way out, I was filled with indifference
The animals they were getting tired
So I sang them a song, as they promised not to take too long
Well I can't find my way back home
I'll listen to you if you want me to
Drive to share a smoke
Yeah I've been running against the wind
And I can hear the angels calling
The madness has been pulling me
Right back out my stride I feel the change in the rise and tide
And blood is in the room and I buried all my guilt there with my youth
I'm on the outside and I'm falling apart
Woo yeah

Well please to meet you excuse my hand
Well I've been bitten by an enemy that's pretended to be my friend
No I never wanted to be like them
Thought I was just too clever to be brought down to the level
Of misfortune [?]
Well I don't care now what its worth
But if you lift this burden off my back
I'll follow you to the bloody end

I lived my life the way I want
But no one can tell me they're not afraid of freedoms of deliverance
Will I take it all in strife
I feel the change in the rise and tide
And someones in the room I buried all my wrongs in there with my youth

And I'm on the outside
It's warm on the outside
That's the life, I don't wanna fall apart

Well me I've been afraid didn't know it was getting closer
The darkest days upon you
Yeah well me I've been afraid well I clawed with all I had
The darkest days upon you
