Flobots - Failure Games Lyrics




My brother we lost you to the waters that have always lied to us
I lost you thought my hands were quick but never quick enough
I lost you to demons that have grown up in the crib with us
And I wasn't in your corner when those lies came to fisticuffs
My other were all born with a dragon branded on our shoulder blades
Scars are invisible
But my spine knows the weight
All of us in the struggle don't need a diagnosis
When depression is a constant
We all know but do not notice
The diplomacy of monsters
Those we hold up
Are we lifting them up
Or are we tying them down to the altar
We anoint our leaders young
But if I had been there in the lobby
Would you have made it to the balcony
How many hands do we need
To do right by the mouths you feed
The position of the ugly sun
Has heat to kill the shade away
Dead songs of unwillingly servants
Laid still but still lay awake
No candles on the deathday cake
Couldn't find it on the schedule
Couldn't pull the strings to get it going
Cause I'm all out of geppetto moves
Handcuffs and statutes
Strange fruit makes bad juice
State house and don't shoot
The solution of medusa
Trying to turn us into statues
If I could only make these hands loose
Your mother's voice is the only one that names you
It claims you

I definitely don't want you to feel the way that you do

My calendar still knows your name
So happy birthday time traveller
See the frozen flames
Tried to apply first aid
When challenger first rose to fame
I was in the third grade
They fell to earth when explosion reigned
Melted whatever snows remained
Now the chasm is river sized like
Arizona openings
Now the pattern is giving highs
Like serotonin dopamine
Citywide black and blue regalia
Trade apologies like a boat exchange
Say all mine I'll say all yours
Master of human failure
Overseen the underhanded
Fumbling like I'm from the panthers
I don't understand cause I had a hundred grand plan
Now I want an answer
Living life boastfully
Should I get rid of my hopes and dreams that didn't die
Give advice
This isn't like it was supposed to be

  1. SageWaterDragon

    "Now the cavern is river-sized like Arizona openings, now the pattern is giving highs like serotonin, dopamine" might be the best single line that they've ever written.

  2. Alex 2.0

    The sounds of clanking is from the holocaust memorial , where you walk across a hallway of metal, face shaped plates to give 'voice' to the victims long past.

  3. Matanuska Tundra

    This is so glorious, I fucking love this band. I've been in the shadows for far too long. Time to get this reform. represent.us

  4. Adam aa

    Does anyone what he's saying after Brer's verse and before "I never really don't want you to feel the way that you do"?

    Hyena MCOC

    Let me burn and falter

  5. derrick luckett

    A did you guys know madusa was actually the mother of all gods before becoming the snake lady

  6. Dave 0Connor

    My hairs stand up every time i listen to thus song. It means a lot to me.

  7. Georges Rodrigues

    Magnifique...

  8. Georges Rodrigues

    Magnifique

  9. Mistrz Varflock

    I found a list with all songs from this album on youtube... I can listen to only two, the rest is "blocked in my country". It only makes me more curious and as everyone knows - if something appears in the internet, it's never lost completely.

    Don't get me wrong, I rarely agree with this band about anything. It doesn't change the fact that their songs sound amazing and I'd like to listen what they have to say and make my own opinion about it. I just hope it's blocked because of something like copyrights and not just silly censorship.

    ben knol

    where do you live north korea

    Fractale

    May I ask why you disagree with them? I've rarely found anything but truth in their music...

  10. Anfubvinch

    This sucks

    Sergei Kakalin

    Anfubvinch this is rap. Why don't you go try to make meaningful music and then see how it feels to be treated like bullshit

    Hamilton Gaming

    Actually this is classified under the alternative category not the hip hop/rap category

    Mélanie Villard

  12. Atom-O-Tronic

    This song was incredible & emotionally heavy but the rest of the album pales in comparison to this unfortunately.

    Jake L

    American Dreams is very good too.
