lyrics

you're the greatest freshwater lakes in the world
i'm the salty, briny, codless ocean
i get angry/i get angry/i get angry
you're a sage in your old age
i throw tantrums on the floor

you think i'm alright, i don't know why
when i look into my own eyes i see
fight! fight!
you know that i've got action/passion!
but the evil's no accident...

you're the greatest freshwater lakes in the world
i'm the salty, briny, codless ocean
i get angry/ you're at peace, you're at peace
i get angry/ you're at peace, you're at peace
i get angry/ you're at peace, you're at peace
you're a sage in your old age
i throw tantrums on the floor

pounded the streets that night
looking for an intimate fight
to rip apart all that's grown in too tight,
to handle,
i'm going to dismantle the unities
that i'v been making lately
