That's a fancy phone But you're gonna have to put that thing on airplane mode Or at least turn off the ring It ain't a saving grace Living from a bird's eye view And you ain't saving face Nobody's gonna save you But you If you can't live in the moment I can teach you bae But I gotta be able to reach you bae You gotta give me more So show me a feeling that isn't crowded by a ceiling Claustrophobic, cornered, kicking at the boards in the floor We didn't get on stage To just stare at the top of your head Quit acting your age Or get home and get back to bed It aint Christmas eve but I'm giving it up And you don't know what to expect It ain't no mystery what you're give me back Is exactly what you're gonna get With all due respect If you die tonight You could say you buried your head in the sand Or lived like dynamite So break down every door you can Or spend the night pickin up every call But if you stepped outside you would find There's nothing real outside these walls

You're breaking out of your caste You're dying to make the society page But none of that's gonna last You'd get it just to watch it fade 'Cause you're an old soul An archangel in beach sandals And a pocket full of unmet goals You could never hope to handle You can't build a city On a list of things you don't like, it's not a map You can't carve and idol with your eyes closed You just can't So give me some good news Some relief from all these ghosts Give me a benediction And it's a seatbelt at a slot machine You keep praying and they're saying That you don't know what they mean You only came to play a game You can't build a city Not on a list of things you don't like, it's not a map You can't carve and idol with your eyes closed You just can't So give me some good news Some relief from all these ghosts Give me nuclear fission Give me sweet nostalgia A champagne car and a day at the coast Give me science fiction

I've been looking in the wrong direction all day for feeling alive You've been living with a fond affection for him But it is enough to know it, not to shout from the hills And it's up to me now to take the poison pill A stone can only get so high Heaven knows the reason why The imitation isn't a good look for you So you can make it all about you while never being heard A daring display of sentiment, only seen at a loss for your words On display and in the light I couldn't bring myself to knock you down -- is it any more right? A stone can only get so high Heaven told the reason why Keep on raising it up even though he's gone The point you brought us to, on and on Are we any closer to the source? I feel it drag me under, to act like it's enough Takes all of your time and all of your strength to balance Looking lonely, or saying you're alone

People in the city They order Monte Cristos and mimosas They ride emotional roller coasters And the world is old enough to know by now I get up It only serves to break me down I wish that I was around the People in the city They make love like a jackhammer They throw a punch like a belt sander And the world is old enough to know by now I get up It only serves to break me down I wish that I was around the People in the city

It was a novel idea til we missed our shot To salvage the night let's just make the best of what we've got It's a rush when we're alone, just you and me And that's exactly just the way I want it to be And you know the things I'm thinking about because you've thought of them too And it's just a matter of time before we're gonna go through I know that it's a rush When there's a little risk in innocent fun And I know that it's a crutch But there's work involved to get it done

Airplane mode.
Sometimes you switch it on
It could be required, it could be optional
Take a moment to disconnect, and disappear
You can always switch it back off
A departure and a landing
