Banks - Poltergeist Lyrics




I started all the wars, I started all the wars
I've been getting messages from my deep waters
I'd be a resentful caretaker
Blame me for your false indicators
You mistaking all my mistakes for my crooked nature

Oh my god, I think I saw a ghost
Follow me everywhere I go
Don't even try to get creative
I smell a clown looking goofy, dressed up as a native

Why'd you call me here? You don't even know
Acting like a fool when you mull it over
Make it go away, you won't even know
Baby looking cool smoking on a clover

I started all the wars, I started all the wars
I've been getting messages from my deep waters
I'd be a resentful caretaker
Blame me for your false indicators
You mistaking all my mistakes for my crooked nature

Oh my god, I think I saw a ghost
Why you here walking around on my home street?
Pardon me
Cut your shoulder, you've been affected
I smell the chemicals, I don't see miracles
I'm at the pinnacle, you're so material
Oh did you get your money?
Yeah, yeah, yeah

I started all the wars, I started all the wars
I've been getting messages from my deep waters
I'd be a resentful caretaker
Blame me for your false indicators
You mistaking all my mistakes for my crooked nature

    I started all the wars, I started all the wars
    I've been getting messages from my deep waters
    I'm being a resentful caretaker
    Blame me for your false indicators
    You're mistaking all my mistakes for my crooked nature
    Oh my god, I think I saw a ghost
    Follow me everywhere I go
    Don't even try to get creative
    I smell a clown looking goofy, dressed up as a native
    Won't you come here? You don't even know
    Acting like a fool when you roll over
    We could go away, you won't even know
    Blame me, looking cool smoking on the clover
    I started all the wars, I started all the wars
    I've been getting messages from my deep waters
    I'm being a resentful caretaker
    Blame me for your false indicators
    You're mistaking all my mistakes for my crooked nature
    Oh my god, I think I saw a ghost
    Why you're here walking around on my home street, bothering me?
    Got your shoulder, you've been affected
    I smell the chemicals, I don't see miracles
    I'm at the pinnacle, you're so material
    Why don't you get what you need?
    I started all the wars, I started all the wars
    I've been getting messages from my deep waters
    I'm being a resentful caretaker
    Blame me for your false indicators
    You're mistaking all my mistakes for my crooked nature

  12. a real human being

    Does anyone knows how is it called the song she used as a sample for the "mhmmmhmm"?

    hello jones

    Stay by zedd and alessia cara

    Marcos Macedo

    @hello jones stay sampled Poltergeist.....

    Dionysia Stergiou

    Actually banks song was first

  13. Lady Tanya

  15. Korynne Lyles

    Me likey

  16. 4NutriFitTV

    love this song

  17. Doris Rasic

    That "mhmmmhmm" sounds literally like Stay by Alessia Cara eventhough BANKS' song came out first

    Jasmin krob

    Doris Rasic yes That’s my same thought when i heard stay

    Bianca

    yes because news flash Zedd copied her song and she called his ass out on twitter

    She-Ra Princess of Power

    @Bianca really coz I just checked and there is no song credit to her. I only like Stay for that 'mmmmmm'.

    Kevin Redmond Jr

    Maybe because she said copy?

  18. Scott Steffy

    How does this song only have 40k views? I think its one of Banks' top 5.

    ugh thiskid

    Yeah it’s my favorite BANKS song

    Flower

  24. Nai

    Hey :) Could you please watch my cover of this? I'd really appreciate any feedback!! :)

  25. Swift Transactions

    ALL I WANNA DO IS STAY
    A LITTLE
    JUST TAKE
    MY SONGS

    Danielle Clarke

    Swift Transactions omg i realized this too!! i wonder if they actually stole this song or asked to use the same instrumental LOL

    Swift Transactions

    @Danielle Clarke Samples aren't protected by copyright law unfortunately --- even those Banks' original sample is so different from the original soul song it came from. Zedd dodges legal liability by altering pitch and tempo slightly but if you notice, even the MELODY is copied slightly. "Waiting for the time to pass me by" is a technically and objectively tighter melody for radio but has the same notes as "I started all of the wars"

    Banks was pissed

    hellothing

    Swift Transactions i mean thats how i found out about banks—thru zedd/alessia cara
    but i found an artist i am very into as a result :p

    Gabriel

    what,???
