Every time I see you in the world
You always step to my girl

Back back way back
I used to front like angkor what
Mechanicsburg, anchorage, and dar e salaam

While home in new york
Was champagne and disco tapes
From L. A. Slash san francisco
But actually oakland and not alameda
Your girl was in berkely with her communist reader
Mine was entombed within boombox and walkman
I was a hoarder but girl that was back then

The gloves are off
The wisdom teeth are out
What you on about?
I feel it in my bones
I feel it in my bonesss

I’m stronger now
I’m ready for the house.
Such a modest mouse
I Can’t do it alone
I Can’t do it aloneee

Every time I see you in the world
You always step to my girl

Ancestors told me
That their girl was better
She’s richer than croesus
She’s tougher than leather
I just ignored all the tales of a past life
Stale conversation deserves but a bread knife
And punks who would laugh
When they saw us together
Well they didn’t know
How to dress for the weather
I can still see them there huddled on astor
Snow falling slow to the sound of the master

The gloves are off
The wisdom teeth are out
What you on about?
I feel it in my bones
I feel it in my bonesss

I’m stronger now
I’m ready for the house.
Such a modest mouse
I Can’t do it alone
I Can’t do it aloneee

Wisdom’s a gift but you’d trade it for youth
Age is an honor it’s still not the truth
We saw the stars when they hid from the world
You cursed the sun when it stepped to your girl
Maybe she’s gone and I can’t resurrect her
The truth is she doesn’t need me to protect her
We know the true death
The true way of our flesh
Everyone’s dying but girl you’re not old yet

The gloves are off
The wisdom teeth are out
What you on about?
I feel it in my bones
I feel it in my bonesss

I’m stronger now
I’m ready for the house.
Such a modest mouse
I Can’t do it alone
I Can’t do it aloneee

The gloves are off
The wisdom teeth are out
What you on about?
I feel it in my bones
I feel it in my bonesss

I’m stronger now
I’m ready for the house.
Such a modest mouse
I Can’t do it alone
I Can’t do it aloneee

Every time I see you in the world
You always step to my girl
