Horrorshow – Astray (Bardo State Album)

[Verse 1: Solo]
Can you hear the sirens off in the distance?
Hoping they don’t come my way
While I’m tryna maintain, keep up resistance
I can feel them hiding, off in the shadows
Hear ‘em whispering my name
But I’m tryna maintain on the straight and narrow
She’s tryna explain all the things she might do
If I only just let her
She keep talking about love, I only just met her
Tryna be a man of my word, down to the letter
And if I didn’t know better
I’d swear that you were tryna break me
Make me learn the error of my ways

[Pre-Chorus 1: Solo]
The whole room is lost in the beat as we sway
She leans into me and says don’t be a stranger, and
And I could be so easily persuaded
So please don’t you lead me astray

[Chorus: Dan Caplen & Solo]
‘Cause I been up so high, free falling
I feel like we’ll be kings by morning
And in the quiet I can hear them calling
I feel like we’ll be kings by morning

[Verse 2: Solo & Dan Caplan]
In the eerie silence, while the city’s sleeping
I replay it in my brain
All the strangers and exchanges of the evening
The secrets I been keeping
But I been running my mouth, running round town, running amok, running rampant
I been forming habits, throwing caution to the wind, reckless abandon
I been talking candid to these strangers man but they can’t understand it
That I’m dropping off the face of the planet, shit this ain’t how I planned it
What you grabbing my hand for? Tryna drag me out on that dance floor
Something tells me that you a handful and I ain’t the one to make demands on, but
All of this going round and around in my head whether I’m here or I’m there
Looking around at me at every one else and I’m wondering what is it running round theirs

[Pre-Chorus 2: Solo & Dan Caplan]
The whole room is lost in the beat as we sway
She leans into me and says, ‘Don’t be afraid.’
The look in her eye saying I should obey
Surrounded by all of the downfallen prey
‘Cause the whole room is lost in the beat as we sway
It’s so hard to leave and so easy to stay
Then it hits me—and I hate to be so cliché
It’s me who’s gon’ lead me astray

[Chorus (Extended): Dan Caplen & Solo]
‘Cause I been up so high, free falling
I feel like we’ll be kings by morning
And in the quiet I can hear them calling
I feel like we’ll be kings by morning
‘Cause I been up so high, free falling
I feel like we’ll be kings by morning
I guess I didn’t heed that warning
I feel like we’ll be kings by morning
