William Beckett - Compromising Me Lyrics




Early in the morning, feet stuck underground
Gotta fix my cup of caffeine, then I'm turning things around
Climbing up the mountain, a piano on my back
Gotta cut it loose, throw away the noose and forget about the past

I know you're gonna say I'm not cool enough
Tell all your friends I screwed it up
I could give two shits, just let me breathe

I don't, I don't care what your saying about me
No I don't care
I don't, I don't care what you think about me
No I don't care
Well I can't let you be this constant compromising me

(Comatose bones in the silicon drones)

Early in the morning, feet stuck underground
Gotta fix my cup of caffeine, then I'm turning things around, yeah
Climbing up the mountain, a piano on my back
Gotta cut it loose, throw away the noose and forget about the past

I know you're gonna say I'm not cool enough
Tell all your friends I screwed it up
I could give two shits, just let me breathe

I don't, I don't care what your saying about me
No I don't care
I don't, I don't care what you think about me
No I don't care
Well I can't let you be this constant compromising me

(Comatose bones in the silicon drones)

Leaving it behind me, snake skin in my tracks
The venom could have killed me, I sucked it up and spit it back
When you finally close the window, you find an open door
But its up to you to walk right through and forget about before

I know you're gonna say I'm not cool enough
Tell all your friends that I screwed it up
I could give two shits, just let me breathe

I don't, I don't care what your saying about me
No I don't care
I don't, I don't care what you think about me
No I don't care
Well, I can't let you be this constant compromising me

Comatose bones in the silicon drones
Drowning and drowning and drowning into deep doubt
Comatose bones into silicon clones
Drowning and drowning and drowning into deep doubt

    I heard this song a while ago and liked it so I finally decided to look it up. Still like the song, but this music video definitely took away from it. In my mind I pictured a guy going crazy and having fun, but Will just looks awkward here.

  64. PopTv

    0:31 Almost Here <3

  65. Patrícia W.

    Come to Brazil! *-*

  66. Blue Tai씨

    That's exactly what happened to me at last month, and in these 3-4 weeks i've been listening his new music, watching his shows, and remembering and looking back some episodes of TAI TV. Now I'm completely obsessed and in love with William again <3

  67. Kimberly P

    I miss The Academy Is... so much.

  68. Amethyst Booth

    Saw him and Jonny last friday!!!!!!!!!! slow danced for my first time to William last Friday too!!!!!

  69. Mel Pellerano

    So happy I'm seeing him and Jonny Craig on Sunday!!!!!

  70. Mel Pellerano

    3:24 - 3:29 .... Idk what he just did but I need a new pair of underwear.

  71. Elysse Horwood

    gosh, he has fab hair.

  72. Agata Mal

    Yeah he was so hot! Looked him up as soon as i got home..Tuesday was a great day though, I was lucky enough to get up on stage when Anberlin sang Adelaide! Best.moment.ever!

  73. Melissa Cotton

    I was there too! Mostly just for Beckett tbh. He's so freakin' lovely. So happy that we were the first city to get an old TAI song.

  74. Agata Mal

    I got the pleasure of seeing him play when Anberlin came to Adelaide. Such a cute, honest and lovely artist.

  75. Ashley Jolly

    Just try and stay open minded. Just You Wait is a particular favorite of mine, if you get time to look it up on here.

  76. Gordon Stearns

    I expected a change, I just didn't quite expect... this. But as long as it's good, I can adjust.

  77. Ashley Jolly

    Yes, I can definitely understand. You're entitled to your opinion, and I understand them wanting to take up for William, but they went about it the wrong way.

    I hope you do end up liking it, it took me a bit to get used to the change in sound from TAI to now, but it grew on me. (:

  78. Gordon Stearns

    Thank you for responding intelligently. I think you can understand why I appreciate that at the moment.

    I might check some of it out later, if I have the time. The Pioneer Sessions in particular sound pretty interesting - I might be able to stand this song if it was done with Beckett actually singing and playing guitar.

  79. Gordon Stearns

    You're right that Beckett has a fantastic voice that doesn't need to be electronically edited, but it has been electronically edited anyway, whether it's auto-tuned or not. I think that was a big mistake; I want to hear Beckett's actual voice, not what a machine makes of him.

    And you him live? What? I'll assume you mean you saw him live, and say that I have no doubt that he isn't capable of singing well without electronic editing. I'm not talking about the performance you saw - just this song.

  80. Gordon Stearns

    My apologies - I followed the wrong link. But I can't access it, for whatever fucking reason my computer does anything.

  81. Ashley Jolly

    listening*

  82. Ashley Jolly

    If you don't like this song, try listen to his other solo stuff. The music on his full length he just released doesn't really sound like this. On his three EPs I think he was just messing around with different styles and stuff. Also his Pioneer Sessions album (which that other person mentioned) is all of the songs from his 3 EPs on one record, except its all stripped down and acoustic. No "auto-tune" or "filtering".

  83. Gordon Stearns

    ...that's the same video that we're already commenting on. What was the purpose of linking me to it?

  84. Gordon Stearns

    Pioneer sections? Spotify? You lost me there. But he is auto-tuned throughout, don't try to argue with that.

  85. Gordon Stearns

    You're correct that retarded does mean that, but it has another definition. It's medical definition used to be someone whose I.Q. is lower than 70. I say 'used to be' because it's since been stripped of its medical definition - it means nothing scientific anymore. It's now extremely offensive to mentally handicapped people when used in any context. And even by your definition, I'm not retarded - I wrote a properly-capitalized and thoughtful expression of my opinion. Maybe you should try it.

  86. SofiDiane

    /watch?v=8pW1MrzxUQc

  87. SofiDiane

    are you fucking retarded

  88. Gordon Stearns

    I hate to be that guy, but much as I love The Academy Is..., this sort of sucked. There's so much auto-tune you can hardly tell there's someone actually singing, and the lyrics are pretty dumb. Why must you do this to me, William? You're supposed to be awesome!

  89. Merve Akıncı

    You know what? I just love the song and him.

  90. Gabrielle Mitchell

    Ben Barnes obviously... it was said a while back that they look alike. Adam Lazzara back in the day, yes. But Adam looks different now, though I still love him to bits.

  91. Gabrielle Mitchell

    My feelings too.

  92. Sierra Janes

    I love this song, a feel-good one. And I love that he doesn't have perfect teeth. And he's still good at what he does. <3

  93. Baby kins

    What the fuck is this shit. Dammit william, get your shit together

  94. Sami Benson

    William is still oh so good.

  95. Daisy Beckett

    William still so damn adorable :33

  96. MILES JOSEPH JACKSON / GAY FOR MJ.

    What is with the dislikes? Man, this is horrible. :(

  97. Jazz Gabrielle
