You gotta have faith.

lyrics

Would you believe
I am the GOAT?
I got in yr castle
By swimming yr moat

Snake in the grass
Snake in the water
Snake in the garden
Of peace and slaughter

Would it appeal
To anyone
If it weren't
About having fun?

See me naked; see me bare
See all scars under there
See me naked; see me bare
See all scars under there

Were I a liar
When the sword came down
Preach to the choir
The class clown

Would you believe
There’s a god in your eyes I’m relieved exists, or
Should I then see
That’s a star in my mouth and that’s light you’ve kissed, now

Would you believe
It’s a part of some process, cliché shit, but
Should we concede
We are no longer lost and we’re scared of it, when

Dreams leave the sleep
With a curious thud we misinterpret for
Scenes we’ve both seen
That were bundled with scars of a love hard spent,

At least we can breathe
We can heal arm first, fears reversed, tears burst, begging
Could you believe
There’s a god in your eyes I’m relieved exists,

You

Would you believe
I ate the fruit?
My sin made me leave
My sin made me do it

I love a good sweet
Everything drops away
It's just you and me
And I want you to stay

Would it be wrong
To negotiate?
I didn't belong
And now it's too late

Could it reverse
If I apologize?
I've been the worst
I've told so many lies

Were I a liar
When the sword came down
Preach to the choir
The class clown

Would you believe
I am the GOAT?
I got in yr castle
By swimming yr moat

Snake in the grass
Snake in the water
Snake in the garden
Of peace and slaughter
