Lyrics

Shotgun (We Are Not Your Friends)

Written By: Sun Satellite

Step down and watch yourself digress, I’m only letting you know

You can’t contest this manifests inside until I let it out

I’m watching everything I’m waiting

Face down in concrete I will catch you running in the open

Wasted and washed out in distress you hide until I let it out

I’m watching everything I’m waiting

And we all lose control sometimes

I can see it in your eyes, you’ve lost your mind

I can hear it in the voice you use it’s so misused

We Are Not Your Friends, We Are Not Your Friends

Break down and let yourself confess just try you’re on the front line

Containing all the things suppressed inside until I let it out

I’m watching everything I’m waiting

And we all lose control sometimes

I can see it in your eyes, you’ve lost your mind

I can hear it in the voice you use it’s so misused

We Are Not Your Friends, We Are Not Your Friends

Wait For It

Written By: Sun Satellite

Down under health, I’m feeling old but I’m alive

Reason for stopping twice

Down on myself, I’m getting further all the time

Reaching for something

Go inside as if this was your last goodbye, tonight it’s all I’m thinking

Go inside, there’s no hope

Don’t wait for it, wait for it

Go inside, sink down low

Don’t wait for it, wait for it... go

Drown out the sounds and feel the colder side of life

Reason for stopping twice

Found out myself, I’m keeping over all the time

Reaching for something

Go inside, there’s no hope

Don’t wait for it, wait for it

Go inside, sink down low

Don’t wait for it, wait for it... go

Stars

Written By: Sun Satellite

A world make out of wicker words all wove and crooked

This picture changed right after we found out who took it

Decided when it comes down what matters, to feel your guilt gracefully shatter

All hands on deck work for your lives, this ships been drinking and dreaming the cap size

But you can tell it from our eyes

You like the stars, you like to really get noticed, you finally got there

You like the stars, you like to really get noticed, you finally know this

Standing at the gates we made it past the guards

We’re standing in the castle and we’re taking up the charge

No more dreary dreaming we’re satisfied to wipe the blood of our knives

You like the stars, you like to really get noticed, you finally got there

You like the stars, you like to really get noticed, you finally know this

So long I think it’s time that we say goodbye, so get out
