Atlas Genius - Electric Lyrics




From the corner of your eye
Down to the trap you set tonight
To give you nothing's what you need
They give you so much you can't breathe

I know the past is a lonely place
And given time you could find what you couldn't replace
Don't pretend like you're up in a tree
The future's not where it used to be

It's so electric if we're pretending to
Act like we don't know what to do
To understand it, of where it's headed to
Like we don't know what to do

We could fall
Or we could just face it
And the times will go
We could fall

As I defend and you deny
I can't tell what you like
It's just the thoughts or so it seemed
Let's go outside so we can breathe

I know the past is a lonely place
And now you wake in a bed where there's no other face
Don't pretend like you're up in a tree
The future's not where it used to be

It's so electric if we're pretending to
Act like we don't know what to do
To understand it, of where it's headed to
Like we don't know what to do

We could fall
Or we could just face it
And the times will go
We could fall

    [Verse 1]
    From the corner of your eye
    Down to the trap you set tonight
    To give you nothing's what you need
    They give you so much you can't breathe

    [Pre-Chorus 1]
    I know the past is a lonely place
    In given time, you could find what you couldn't replace
    Don't pretend like you're up in a tree
    The future's not where it used to be

    [Chorus]
    It's so electric if we're pretending to
    Act like we don't know what to do
    To understand it, of where it's headed to
    Like we don't know what to do

    [Post-Chorus]
    We could fall
    Or we could just face it
    And the times will go
    We could fall

    [Verse 2]
    As I defend and you deny
    I can't tell what you like
    It's just the thoughts or so it seemed
    Let's go outside so we can breathe

    [Pre-Chorus 2]
    I know the past is a lonely place
    And now you wake in a bed where there's no other face
    Don't pretend like you're up in a tree
    The future's not where it used to be

    [Chorus]
    It's so electric if we're pretending to
    Act like we don't know what to do
    To understand it, of where it's headed to
    Like we don't know what to do

    [Post-Chorus]
    We could fall
    Or we could just face it
    And the times will go
    We could fall

    [Outro]
    Oh oh, oh oh, oh oh
    Oh oh, oh oh, oh oh
    Oh oh, oh oh, oh oh
    Oh oh, oh oh, oh oh

    Oh oh, oh oh, oh oh, ah ah ah, oh
    Oh oh, oh oh, oh oh, ah ah ah, oh
    Oh oh, oh oh, oh oh, ah ah ah, oh

  2. Aurora Borderalis

    I don't know if it's just me but this song gives me strong Project Almanac vibes. Also, I think it would be really good if it was in Life Is Strange.

  3. SkyWarrior100

    The intro is somewhat similar to I'm a real 1 by YG.

  4. 180grammi bologna

    WHY. DO. YOU. FUCKING. SING!? THE MUSIC WAS SO AMAZING, TILL YOU FUCKING OPENED YOUR MOUTH BRO

  7. dana

    You guys were so fucking great at BFD. I don't understand why the majority of the audience was sitting down. I was jamming throughout the whole time!

    mc bruh

    +little vinci where did you buy the tickets? are they expensive?

    dana

    @Johnathan Eggberto The price depends on where you sit at Shoreline. Last time I went, mine were $60 and I was sitting in the middle section. If you want the cheapest tickets, you'd have to sit on the lawn and they are like $27-$40. Buy the tickets from ticketmaster if you wanna go this year. c:

    mc bruh

    +little vinci thank you. also to be honest you are really attirective just saying XD

  51. Beck

    Impressive.

  52. Ryan Stubblefield

    You're going to have to wait like every other kid on the face of this planet did when THEY wanted to go to a concert and were underage. (including myself a few dozen times) Lucky it isn't a 21 and over show like most of them are in America... You won't have to wait as long.

  53. sanitra henderson

    ughhh they have a concert in toronto this week( my city) and you have to be 18 to go :( please lower the age so i can go one dayyyyyyyyy!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  54. ablehumanity

    I listen to electric light orchestra as well, and I know music enough (having produced songs for 2 going on 3 years myself), to say that I agree with you. This song in particular I think does show qualities of the classic rock group and to say my personal opinion, both bands are great. As far as internet chat can go, I would say I am impressed with you for noticing, because I didn't realize that the first time I came on here, but after you had stated that it hit me.

  55. perihelion54

    You guys are a breath of fresh air!

  56. Thelma Cano

    My favorite song! You guys are AMAZING!
