Foster The People – Doing It For The Money lyrics
[Chorus 1]
Just close your eyes
We’re gonna run this blind
We live our lives
Yeah, we’re not wasting time
Maybe we lost our minds
We’re gonna get, gonna get
Get what we can
But we’re not doing it for the money
Doing it for the money
Doing it for the money
Doing it for the money

[Verse 1]
Is it wrong to write the rules?
We gotta strike a match to light the fuse
Now I’m never looking back
It’s time to leave the future in the past

[Pre Chorus 1]
I said it doesn’t matter where I go I am
Calling all the poets into battle I am
Shouting to the world let them know that we won’t
Be afraid to step into the fight
When we can’t see the light

[Chorus]
So close your eyes
We’re gonna run this blind
We live our lives
Yeah, we’re not wasting time
Maybe we lost our minds
We’re gonna get, gonna get
Get what we can
But we’re not doing it for the money
Doing it for the money
Doing it for the money
Doing it for the money

[Verse 2]
Well, if you’re down then soldier up
You better learn to shoot or learn to duck
There’s no retreat and no escape
If we keep dreaming while we’re wide awake

[Pre Chorus 2]
I said it doesn’t matter where I go I am
Calling all the prophets into battle I am
Never going to change who I am I won’t
Bend under the pressure when my back’s on the ropes
I said it doesn’t matter where I go I am
Staring down the barrel of a gun we are
Shouting to the world let them know that we are
Not afraid to step into the fight
When you can’t see the light

[Chorus]
So close your eyes
We’re gonna run this blind
We live our lives
Yeah, we’re not wasting time
Maybe we lost our minds
We’re gonna get, gonna get
Get what we can
But we’re not doing it for the money
Doing it for the money
Doing it for the money
Doing it for the money

[Bridge]
Well it’s a silicon rush
And I’m addicted
I don’t understand
When it starts I can’t switch
Saying what I won’t do
Well pleasure comes as pain too
But mostly it’s an afterthought
And it’s slowly coming after you

[Chorus]
So close your eyes
We’re gonna run this blind
We live our lives
Yeah, we’re not wasting time
Maybe we lost our minds
We’re gonna get, gonna get
Get what we can
But we’re not doing it for the money
Doing it for the money
Doing it for the money
Doing it for the money
