Olympia

Written By: tasneem nanji

Verse 1
the bodies like water only tempting when we're thirsty
the land is a temple i just worship what i can see
the truth is i'm just alil bit ruthless its the nature of the beast feast on this here we're only bliss dear whne you beleive
Chorus
oh no not tonight olympia and besides you dont even dig the high
give it time you are the sun i can see you looks like youre about to fly
Verse 2
we all come in colors and i come in shades of the banyan tree
im afraid of the future locked in computer memory the truth is we're all a lil bit ruthless its the nature of the beast at least i tell you to run i tell you to run i tell you when you've come undone
Chorus
oh no not tonight olympia and besides you dont even dig the high
give it time you are the sun i can see you looks like youre about to fly
so high

oh i'm high
so high
so high can't get any higher
