Circa Survive - Sharp Practice Lyrics



Tripping over things unsaid in a constant motion
I cannot recognize the truth ‘cause it’s unfamiliar
If you didn’t have so much left to prove, would there be resistance?

Kicking up this cloud of dust till it covers us
I had been there and done it a thousand times but never with my eyes open

You get what you paid for
We can’t sell our Goddamn souls anymore, anymore
Don’t let them give you the runaround again, again
It’s up to you to make sense of it. Yeah. Talk

No one hesitates to taste when they come and throw the feet down
If you wanna make haste, keep your feet on the ground
I see you coming from a million miles away like a stampede of footsteps

Kicking up this cloud of dust till it covers us
You can’t control what's happen to your heart
till you give it away - till you give it away

You get what you paid for
We can’t sell our Goddamn souls anymore, anymore
Don’t let them give you the runaround again, again
It’s up to you to make sense of it

So many words flooded in my vacant lie
So little space, too little sleep, too little time

Tripping over things unsaid in a constant motion
I cannot recognize the truth ‘cause I’ve never known it
I’ve never known it - I’ve never known it - known

You get what you paid for
We can’t sell our Goddamn souls anymore, anymore
Don’t let them give you the runaround again, again
It’s up to you to make sense of it

I see you coming from a million miles away
I see you coming from a million miles away

  22. Anthony Ross

    Man, violent waves doesn't get enough credit for how fucking amazing it is. It's like the bridging point from where they where (musical geniuses), to the musical gods they are now.

  23. Asap Wock Cola

    Where has this band been my entire life, I just want to throw house parties with their music their music all night long

    Daniel Machuca

    They've been around since 2006 welcome to the party!

    Tiffany Evans

    I actually used to jam to circa before I could drive. Lol they took me so many places in my mind. I did have parties playing their stuff everyone would say " Tiff,this is trippy :)" then everyone in my town started having to go to their concerts. Go see them LIVE... That's where the party is at.

    Edwin Portillo

    @Tiffany Evans yea I saw Anthony green and circa live

    Nadav Guy

  29. KellyxKatastrophic

  30. Justin Kerr

    @crystalheart i know!! Everything is becoming trash

  31. Nat Páli

  36. Jonathan Midtgaard Jensen

    MultiMsa1

    xXSilver&VeniceFan1987 _

    @MultiMsa1 Same! My god yes same.

    NoFaceKira.

    We need that goose meme

  37. viki varuki

  38. ilOvepurple675

    Don't let them give you the runnnnaarrrrouuuunnnndddd. . .

  39. Chris D

    Deftones/Foo Fighters mix it makes me think. Sounds real sick and it is unique.

  40. pstrand64

    yeah whats up with the masonic symbols?

    ThrashAh0lic

    Sharp practice means sneaky and cunning behavior that is manipualtive but is technically legal. Perhaps they were going with a slight political edge on this song like they were on "Birth of the economic hitman"

    Isaiah

    @ThrashAh0lic Thank you.

  41. Carina

    i cant believe they sold there soul and ive never seen the video until now and all the masonic signs and little symbols suprised me i never thought they would

    EXPOSING THE TRUTHERS

    Well does he not say in the chorus "we can't sell our godamn souls anymore"

    Carina

    Meaning he did once and they can't anymore, they gave all they have

    childofbhaal

    Carina that's completely ridiculous. I've met all the dudes in Circa numerous times and they are anything but sell outs.

  42. sham j

    i cant believe eminem took reference of this video for rapgod!!! this proves that he is not only listens to rap but also genres.  he is indeed a rap god

  43. Rajya -Dyu- Arista

    mate... for real... EVERY song of Circa Survive are... simply... THE SONGS <3

  44. Matias Meza-Evans

    HAAAAHAHAHAHAHAHA. listen to ALL of it.

  45. Toren Galardi

    PLEASE just keep making more music!

  46. GuzzyBear

    This song is so brutally soft and heavy. blowing my mind.

  47. Lorelle A

    i glady think my friend for telling me about Circa Survive 3 thanks Jose c':

    Ulisses Karell

    I also knew a Jose who showed me Circa a long time ago, could it be the same one...

  48. holycrapitstony

    This reminds me a lot of a tech demo with the Kinect.

  49. Derek Sayler

    If this band ever breaks up or stops making music i will die inside...

  50. Hafiz Widodo

    can I download it ?

  51. matt Walter

    Love the trippy music video

  52. 08bourquem

    I am thoroughly tripped out by this video. Great band.

  53. xXSilver&VeniceFan1987 _

    y no 1 make lyrics for the song T__T

  54. xXSilver&VeniceFan1987 _

    i first saw this song at a emo store

  55. Zach Gianikos

    The reason I ask is because they showed a crowd in part of the video and I think I remember a show I was at where there was a guy on the stage filming the crowd with a special camera. I can't remember if they said it was for a video or not.

  56. NormalAbii

    This is just a music video.

  57. HatchetRecords

    See you at Uproar in Scranton Pa!

  58. Blake Charles

    This concept has been used a lot recently in music videos. I love theirs the best.

  59. Shana

    this video looks cool as sheit. O.O

  60. Shana

    this video looks cool as sheit. O.O

  61. Zach Gianikos

    Does anyone know what show this is from?

  62. QQuick

    I liked the live acoustic version better

  63. мойкавер

    .reminds me so much of that linkin park video...exept i like this one a whole lot more)))

  64. iEditorial

    Would have been fun to make

  65. Shinobi HOG

    golf clap.....

  66. Diego Pozo

    You mean Dire Straits I guess

  67. Pinupblonde13

    been one of my favorite bands since the 6th grade..happy they still make wonderful music!!!

  68. Shinobi HOG

    This is like the 21st century's version of that dyer straights video "money for nothing"

  69. ivan

    37 people love justin bieber and 1 erection .. i ment direction

  70. Alex Ramez

    This video reminds me a lot to Linkin Park's Waiting For The End video.

  71. mouthinbutt

    check out A Lot Like Birds, Dance Gavin Dance, The Speed Of Sound In Seawater, Coheed and Cambria, Hail The Sun.

  72. FreddieMason

    I think it was more of some Sharp Practice

  73. Vinz Attic

    am i the only one who noticed that all of the songs of circa survive on youtube has no dislikes? :DD

  74. Jonathon Castro

    Seeing them in honolulu tonight so fucking stoked for this!

  75. aceinthehole1222

    the whole chorus is basically that lol. "we can't sell our goddamn souls anymore..don't let them give you the run around..." This is for real an amazing song/cd..but I love all Circa.

  76. ViCiouS HeRoicS

    I wanna discover more bands that sound similar to Circa, anybody know what bands sound similar to Circa.

  77. Max Cat

    they talked about it in a recent interview

  78. nmeyers92

    they said it in an interview they posted on facebook

  79. MikeGontmakher

    really? how do u know that?

  80. MikeGontmakher

    not if he loves his profession.

  81. nmeyers92

    they used xbox kinect with a video camera right next to it at concerts

  82. nmeyers92

    WHY DOES THIS HAVE SO LITTLE VIEWS... seriously blows my mind

  83. Kylie Larrabee

    They played the beginning of this song on those video things in journey's I kept wishing it would play the whole thing! I can't explain how much I love these guys. They're so amazing.:D

  84. Fernando Garcia

    Actually Equal Vision (Their label) was pretty cool with all of this and even did some original promotion for the new album and calling them big seems kinda misleading considering the popularity of the bands they manage

  85. Alexandre Piché

    They did this video with Windows OS.

  86. Payton Lowe

    I like the part wehre they come out of the TV.

  87. Ray Roman

    I'm thinking it was done in After Effects. Probably a b*tch to render.

  88. QSdrummrz

    I was thinking the same thing?

  89. JonnyGisMe

    Check out the band "Audiobakery" if you're in the mood to discover some new music!

  90. Cthulhu

    I agree it was.

  91. sandasassin18

    They were fucking incredible dude. it was a 13 hour show. but well worth the wait.

  92. Official_Kylo

    I want to go see them at the fillmore but idk if I have enough gas to do it I will be seeing them at the Lincoln theater I wis hI could go to both, but I can't complain I will finally get to see them live :))))) I am so excited I will be the happiest person in the world just like the crowd lol.

  93. MarioValienteT

    Epic Video

  94. Olfactophobia

    It's like the violent waves version of get out off of blue sky noise. They're not the same at all, just a similar vibe.

  95. Matt Benzie

    great video once again by Circa Survive!

  96. Joe Flowers

    watch?v=i2nREBAp75k <----if youre bored.

  97. sandasassin18
