President Heartbeat

This song is by Everything Everything and appears on the album Get to Heaven (2015).

(President Heartbeat)

Were you born in a cave now?
Do you live in a cage now?
If you burst into flame now
Will they call you a human being?

And your spine is a glass spire
And your flesh is the concrete
And your blood is the sewer
And your skin is the city wall

Well I wanna be different
But it never gets different
And you promised me Heaven
And you said it would happen soon

Can you boil inside me?
Can you radicalise me?
Can you take me to violence?
Can you take away everything?

(President Heartbeat)
Turn me into somebody new
(President Heartbeat)
Turn me into somebody new
(Thanks a million)
Yeah thanks for nothing at all
(Thanks a million)
Yeah thanks for nothing at all

(President Heartbeat)
Turn me into somebody new
(President Heartbeat)
Turn me into somebody new
(Thanks a million)
Yeah thanks for nothing at all
(Thanks a million)
Yeah thanks for nothing at all

Do you live in the new world
On the grave of the old world?
With a coffin of sunlight
That you carry upon your back?

Feel the rat at your ankle
And the rush in your eyeball
And they're bludgeoning cycle
And the way you don't even feel

Well I think about living
And I think about burning
And I think about dying
And I think about all this fear

And I wanna be useful
And I wanna be hopeful
What's the matter with hopeful?
I just wanna get out of here

(President Heartbeat)
Turn me into somebody new
(President Heartbeat)
Turn me into somebody new
(Thanks a million)
Yeah thanks for nothing at all
(Thanks a million)
Yeah thanks for nothing at all

(President Heartbeat)
Turn me into somebody new
(President Heartbeat)
Turn me into somebody new
(Thanks a million)
Yeah thanks for nothing at all
(Thanks a million)
Yeah thanks for nothing at all

(President Heartbeat)
Turn me into somebody new
(President Heartbeat)
Turn me into somebody new
(Thanks a million)
Yeah thanks for nothing at all
(Thanks a million)
Yeah thanks for nothing at all

(President Heartbeat)
Eee...
(President Heartbeat)
Ah...
(President Heartbeat)
Oh...
(President Heartbeat)
You must've known this was coming
