Nothing But Thieves - Soda Lyrics




I'm an exception
It's hard to accept
Because I try to be happy
But then I forget
They tell me I need to chill
Man, it's all in your head
Maybe I'm paranoid

I don't wanna be myself
It's making me so unwell, yeah
I don't wanna be myself
Just wanna be someone else, yea yea yeah

I once had a thought
But don't know where it went
'Cause I've been living off soda and cheap cigarettes
Maybe when I was a kid
I was dropped on my head
Yeah, that would make some sense

I don't wanna be myself
It's making me so unwell, yea yea yeah
I don't wanna be myself
Just wanna be someone else, yea yea yeah

I don't wanna be myself
It's making me so unwell, yea yea yeah
I don't wanna be myself
Just wanna be someone else, yea yea yeah

I don't wanna be myself
It's making me so unwell, yea yea yeah
I don't wanna be myself
Just wanna be someone else, yea yea yeah

  8. Dat_ boi

    This song feels like "there she goes" by the la's

  9. Jønathan

    Remember that we’re all exceptions.

  10. Euphrosis

    Playback speed 1.25 changes the vibe completely

  11. Tablo Vitamin

    Still my favorite song.

  12. Alejandra del Valle

    So beautiful

  13. Justsomebody outthere

    Check (if u want) the cover made by Shahar Erez. It's not gonna disappoint you. Cheers

  16. Sally Crosby sings

    Done a cover of this on my channel if anyone’s interested :) love this song and band <3

  17. Tazny

    I used to think the lyrics at 1:13 were "I once gave a fuck but don't know where it went" and I was like damn Conor, sassy af

  18. Rylee Crone

    The beginning kinda sounds like trouble by cage the elephant

  19. Tigercup

    Noticing that the title of the video is actually just “Soda” fucked with my head. Just _one word._ Doesn’t say what band, or album, or that it’s official, anything. Never happens on YouTube.

  20. Makenzi Morse

    This is a bop

  21. Online Jobs From Home

    wonderful

    Conor Mason

    i like your pfp

  22. Sentyr

    I relate to this so hard

  23. ForSaKen Overcast

    I love this song, but does anyone else think the melody in the verses and chorus sounds like "Trouble" by Cage the Elephant?

  24. Abagail Maddox

    I feel like this is such a coming-off-the-high kind of song, like i can just see in my head someome coming off their first high and just hating themselves from it and they can just feel their life begin to unravel

    Isabelle

    Abagail Maddox yo I’m coming down from my high right now 🙌

    Goldfish On-Steroids

    For sure that was me, and a whole host of other people in this world. Love this song

  25. Alyssa McKillop

    I'm in love, this song is beautiful

  26. Bidoof

    This song is fantastic. Best on the album imo. The view count should be way higher.

  27. Ethan Dawkster

    A friend recommend song this to me, and I'm glad I listened to it!

  28. Ahrianna Macias

    I’ve discovered a new band...yay

    tylerrjoseph peters

    clikkiesss!

  29. Felix Rosana

    I used to think I was dropped on the head as a baby, I still think so

    Steven Yeater

    Felix Rosana Is your head concave? Good indicator 🤪

  30. 바람처럼자유롭게

    Hi How are things

    lily ferguson

    바람처럼자유롭게 good wbu

    Conor Mason

    shitty until i listened to nbt

  31. Hello

    Why does this not have at least 170k likes?!

  32. 빗소리빗방울

    🎼👍🎶👌💕

  33. Emma Manel

    This sounds very Cage the Elephant-esque

  34. HAILEY GOMEZ

    I cant stop hearing this song so much don't stop doing music

  35. Meldakoala

    I would like the video but I don't want to destroy the 666 likes

  36. KYO

    💞💞💞💞💞

  37. Anthony Rotondella

    Love this band dont really like the second album all that much but its starting to grow on me

  38. Melissa Corey

    So me! Literally.

  39. bonita w

    this song is heartbreaking and i love it

  40. Miike Snow

    If anyone has seen the anime Fooly Cooly, this song has so many indirect references and sounds just like parts of the soundtrack. No joke watch the anime and then listen to this song. It'll blow your mind.

    zed4672

    Miike Snow ur right

    Tachanka

    Jeez you are right :O

  41. Living Slowly

    I relate to this song too much

  42. E C

    This song is everything.

  43. Fiery Soul Hunters

    This song gives me life. 😍😍

  44. Devin Big-Powers

    I got a "The Neighbourhood" feel from this song

    Meldakoala

    Devin Big-Powers can. We. Please. Have. Jesse. Do. A. Cover. Of. This. Song.

    Carly Rae Nation

    Devin Big-Powers i got a nothing but thieves vibe, weird 😂

    Kristen Shively

    ​Same! I always think it's kind of strange when people compare bands to other bands, particularly when they sound nothing the same??? NBT is so unique and beautiful. <3

  45. zoe

    my fave on the album besides particles :")))

  46. Alejandra Garduño

    It is only me or it felt a bit like Glass Animals? peharps I'm the only one who felt it that way. Btw the bass in this song is everything!

    Brandy Guitron

    I loooove glass animals!

    Exzavior Williams

    Alejandra Garduño yes! i think a collab would be awesome

    lily ferguson

    Glass Animals is a blessing to this world as are NBT

    Alex Ortiz

    yeah no I totally agree, nothing but thieves is essentially if you merge glass animals and cage the elephant

  47. Fletcher Stone

    Reminds me of Trouble by Cage the Elephant

    BascoDG

    They do use the same chords

    Jude Atchley

    That was exactly my first thought when I heard this

    LunchandMilk

    I have always though nbt sounded like a mix of cage the elephant and 21 pilots with a heavy dose of Jeff Buckley

    probably michelle

    Oooo, I love that song (and band) maybe that’s why I’m so into this one

    Auna

    Trouble reminded me of this song

  48. Spencer Hoeffling

    It's called pop, not soda

    Katie George

    @Gezo actually 'Coke' is the southern term.

    Conor Mason

    @Katie George every single soda is called that?

    Katie George

    @Conor Mason Yes. All of them (ex: "What kinda coke do you want?") If you live in the city most people call it soda, but out in the sticks and backwoods it's all about coke.

    Conor Mason

    @Katie George Oh lol that's cool😂nah I live out in the country too, but in the valley we call is soda pop

    Tocaraca

    You, me, outside, now

  49. Jessica Kenney

    That little "yeah" at the end of the first chorus. Damn. Conor NAILING those vocals.

  50. IVAN GOMEZ

    Actual lyrics

    [Verse 1]
    I'm an exception
    It's hard to accept
    Because I try to be happy
    But then I forget
    They tell me I need to chill
    Man, it's all in your head
    Maybe I'm paranoid

    [Chorus]
    I don't wanna be myself
    It's making me so unwell, yeah
    I don't wanna be myself
    Just wanna be someone else, yea yea yeah

    [Verse 2]
    I once had a thought
    But don't know where it went
    'Cause I've been living off soda and cheap cigarettes
    Maybe when I was a kid
    I was dropped on my head
    Yeah, that would make some sense

    [Chorus]
    I don't wanna be myself
    It's making me so unwell, yeah
    I don't wanna be myself
    Just wanna be someone else, yea yea yeah

    I don't wanna be myself
    It's making me so unwell, ah
    I don't wanna be myself
    Just wanna be someone else, yea yea yeah

    I don't wanna be myself
    It's making me so unwell, yea yea yeah
    I don't wanna be myself
    Just wanna be someone else, yea yea yeah

    Lyrics:
    I'm the exception
    It's hard to reset
    Because I try to be happy
    But then I forget
    They tell me I need to chill, man
    It's all in your head
    Maybe I'm paranoid

    I don't wanna be myself
    It's making me so unwell, yeah
    I don't wanna be myself
    Just wanna be someone else, yeah

    And once I fucked up
    Don't know where we went
    'Cause I've been living on soda and cheap cigarettes
    Maybe when I was a kid
    I was stroked to my head
    Yeah, that would make some sense

    I don't wanna be myself
    It's making me so unwell, yeah
    I don't wanna be myself
    Just wanna be someone else, yeah

    I don't wanna be myself
    It's making me so unwell, yeah
    I don't wanna be myself
    Just wanna be someone else, yeah

    I don't wanna be myself
    It's making me so unwell, yeah
    I don't wanna be myself
    Just wanna be someone else, yeah

    Mal Gilson

    xxAWESOME BROxx noted!

    구본

    Dude I was looking for your comments lol you are everywhere

    I like your comments cus I’m not born with fucking English

    donglekumquat

    i thought it was "i don't wanna be myself, it's making me someone else"

    StarLord

    It was 'Maybe I was dropped on my head', not maybe I was stroked.

  53. Zimrri Lopez

    This song is so beautiful and so meaningful.... All songs are amazing but is has got to be one of my favorites❤💔

  54. Kameron Berkly

    The level of relatability this song has is fucking with me. I love it so much.

    Tocaraca

    Can't relate. Lyrics are very generic and emo but I guess you can relate if you're depressed as most NBT listeners are

  55. Erin J.

    Much love for an amazing second album 👍

  56. madeleine

    my tears are crying their own tears of joy at the importance of the meaning in this song. thank you thank you thank you

  57. Oskira
