Imagine Dragons – Friction lyrics
[Verse 1]
Get down with the victim
We both know you need them
You're stuck in the middle
Of all irrelevance

And your heart is beating
Cause you know that you gotta
Get out of the middle
And rise to the top now


[Pre-Chorus x2]
When you've made it
Won't ya tell me what to do
Cause I'm playin' it all wrong


[Chorus]
You can't fight the friction (So ease it off)
Can't take the pressure (So ease it off)
Don't tell me to be strong (Ease it off)
You can't fight the friction
So, ease it off

[Verse 2]
And get into the system
We both know you need one
The tip of the needle
Is taking over you
And your heart is beating
Cause you know that you gotta
Get out of the middle
And rise to the top now


[Pre-Chorus x2]
When you've made it
Won't ya tell me what to do
Cause I'm playin' it all wrong

[Chorus]
You can't fight the friction (So ease it off)
Can't take the pressure (So ease it off)
Don't tell me to be strong (Ease it off)
You can't fight the friction
So, ease it off

[Bridge]
Why can't you let go
Like a bird in the snow
This is no place to build your home


[Chorus x2]
You can't fight the friction (So ease it off)
Can't take the pressure (So ease it off)
Don't tell me to be strong (Ease it off)
You can't fight the friction
So, ease it off
