Kindred Shins
Now playing

Lyrics

As Is Tradition

V1

Just a little fixation, a deal lost I’ve made,
If I play your game, if I play your game,
Dehumanisation, but I’m scared I’m brave,
For you I’ll change, for you I’ll change,
I’m so quick to hesitate.
Sweet manifestation, just cast aside,
Who in I confide, my blushing pride,
Well it’s hardly worth a mention,
It’s own demise, for you I’ll try, for you I’ll try,
Well the truth is a little lie

Chorus

And you can be the needle to my vein,
You can be the sin that I entertain,
And you can be the only thing I own
You can be the only thing that I know,
The only thing I know when I’m all alone,

V2

Such an easy declaration, they’re just words I say,
To pass the blame, and I feel no shame,
Such a crowded isolation, to soothe the strain,
Confused and dazed, confused and dazed,
So quick to hesitate

Chorus

And you can be the needle to my vein,
You can be the sin that I entertain,
And you can be the only thing I own
You can be the only thing that I know,
The only thing I know when I’m all alone

Outro

And I can be the one that you wanna save,
And I can be the one that got away,
I only ever run from the memory,
I only ever sleep with the enemy
