Cage The Elephant - Neon Pill Lyrics






HiFi (True Light)

Every day now turned into a night
Catching circles under my eyes
I'm in heaven, I'm in paradise
Not your savior, I'm a wallfly
I'ma fly by, bye and bye

Where did it go, what did it take?
Windows with pain, starting to break
Where do we go? Tell me your name
Comes at a high price, a price I can't pay

Up down, turn around, left and said it's alright
Turn it up, slow down, my house, outta sight
'Member when you said, "We gon' be up all night"?
Up down, turn around, okay, no, I'm fine
Text me in the morning, see you in the morning
Text you in the morning, see me in a true light

I wear your ears out, I'm interstellar now
You did the math wrong, you gotta round me down
Side corridor, laying on the floor
Like a tidal wave, I'm an open door
I'm a wallfly, bye and bye

Where do we go, what did it take?
Windows with pain, starting to break
Where do we go? Tell me your name
Comes at a high price, a price I can't pay

Up down, turn around, left and said it's alright
Turn it up, slow down, my house, outta sight
'Member when you said, "We gon' be up all night"?
Up down, turn around, okay, no I'm fine
Text me in the morning, see you in the morning
Text you in the morning, see me in a true light

How does one know when the sea breaks?
Where does it go? What did it take?
How does one know when to change shapes?
Comes at a high price, a price I can't pay

Up down, turn around, left and said it's alright
Turn it up, slow down, my house, outta sight
'Member when you said, "We gon' be up all night"?
Up down, turn around, okay, no I'm fine

Up down, turn around, left and said it's alright
Turn it up, slow down, my house, outta sight
'Member when you said, "We gon' be up all night"?
Up down, turn around, okay, no I'm fine
Text me in the morning, see you in the morning
Text you in the morning, see me in a true light

Rainbow

Let's lay it out, lay it all on the table
Straight from the top, you called my hand, and I felt labeled
Saw the one past whispers that I hated
Trapped inside a mirror
Changing shapes to shake those labels
Soft crush, twin flame, bright lights, no shame, home base
Even when it's painful

You lift me up, all in, tight-knit, second-skin, won't quit
Satellite faithful, floating like a rainbow

You lift me up when I get down, right 'round
Got me floating like a rainbow
I need your touch, your touch right now, right 'round
Got me floating like a rainbow
And so this world keeps turning 'round, right 'round
Got me floating like a rainbow
You lift me up when I get down, right 'round
Got me floating like a rainbow
Floating like a rainbow

You are more vibrant than a technicolor flower bloom
Worth more than any sunset that I ever even knew
As far as east is to the west, there is no flaw in you
It's you I want, it's you I want, it's you I want, and only you

You lift me up, all in, tight-knit, second-skin, won't quit
Satellite faithful, floating like a rainbow

You lift me up when I get down, right 'round
Got me floating like a rainbow
I need your touch, your touch right now, right 'round
Got me floating like a rainbow
And so this world keeps turning 'round, right 'round
Got me floating like a rainbow
You lift me up when I get down, right 'round
Got me floating like a rainbow
Floating like a rainbow

The lights go out, and I'm back inside that hallway
Shadowboxing shame and self-inflicted mind games
Burning the candle from both ends has got me sideways
Am I afraid to lose or more afraid to lose my way?

You lift me up when I get down, right 'round
Got me floating like a rainbow
I need your touch, your touch right now
You lift me up when I get down
You lift me up when I get down, right 'round
Got me floating like a rainbow
Floating like a rainbow
You lift me up when I get down, right 'round
Got me floating like a rainbow
I need your touch, your touch right now, right 'round
Got me floating like a rainbow
And so this world keeps turning 'round, right 'round
Got me floating like a rainbow
You lift me up when I get down, right 'round
Got me floating like a rainbow
Floating like a rainbow

Neon Pill

It takes one to know one
Back at it again
Birds of a feather
Until the end
Stitched, patched up and sewed in
I'll probably see you again
Most certain it's likely
Around, no doubt, my friend

It's a hit and run, oh no
Double-crossed by a neon pill
Like a loaded gun, my love
Double-crossed, crossed by a neon pill

The taste of your lip balm
Blew me away
Cherry pie ChapStick
Just like back in the day
I sail the Atlantic
Bisou fatal le femme
Mon chéri, exactement
Knocked down, not out, let's roll

It's a hit and run, oh no
Double-crossed by a neon pill
Like a loaded gun, my love
I lost control of the wheel
Double-crossed by a neon pill

Out in the open, I'm thinking it through
And it took so long to find you, to find you

It's a hit and run, oh no
Double-crossed by a neon pill
Like a loaded gun, my love
Double-crossed

It's a hit and run, oh no
Double-crossed by a neon pill
Like a loaded gun, my love
I lost (I lost)
Control (control)
Of the wheel (of the wheel)
Double-crossed by a neon pill

Double-crossed by a neon pill
Double-crossed by a neon pill

Float Into The Sky

All these days in chains
The present age on fire
Three matches cut the gloves
Forced expiration to expire
Now the fox, he digs his hole
And the hound was laying down
Yeah, the vibrant colors swirl
But they never make a sound

So I, I just float into the sky
I just float into my mind
Tell everyone I'm shy
No, I can't escape the clouds
And I can't escape the hounds
I just float into the sky
I just float into my mind

Where's your hand to hold?
The mother hush the child
Cast from every fold
To the bottom of the pile
Where the fox, he digs his hole
And the hound was laying down
Yeah, the vibrant colors swirl
And they were carried by the sound

So I, I just float into the sky
I just float into my mind
Tell everyone I'm shy
No, I can't escape the clouds
And I can't escape the hounds
I just float into the sky
I just float into my mind

Break these chains around me
With waves of light, deliver me
I'm so tired of trying to make some sense of everything I see
Break these chains around me
With waves of light, deliver me
I'm so tired of trying to make some sense of everything I see

I, I just float into the sky
I just float into my mind
Tell everyone I'm shy
No, I can't escape the clouds
And I can't escape the hounds
I just float into the sky
I just float into my mind

(I just float into the sky)

Metaverse

Metaverse fallout
There's really no rush now
Just in case you wanna spell it out
Build me up, then cut me down

It's a natural progression
No need for affection
Just a perfect deflection
When you got no perspective

Every day spent far from my family
Double check, checked out, I'm half asleep
What the hell? Oh, well, that's life
What the hell? I keep running and running

Living in the passed down
Underneath the dark cloud
The spell you put me under
Try to steal my thunder

It's a natural progression
No need for affection
Just a perfect deflection
When you got no perspective

Every day spent far from my family
Double check, checked out, I'm half asleep
What the hell? Oh, well, that's life
What the hell? I keep running and running
Every day, that dream comes back to me
Falling out further, far from my family
What the hell? Oh, well, that's life
What the hell? I keep running and running

Every day spent far from my family
Double check, checked out, I'm half asleep
What the hell? Oh well, that's life
What the hell? I keep running and running
Every day, that dream comes back to me
Falling out further, far from my family
What the hell? Oh, well, that's life
What the hell? I keep running and running

Out Loud

With angry wings, I flew out of that town
I promised you I'd never turn around
Cocaine buzz and a caffeine high
Open all the windows under midnight skies
With angry wings, I flew out of that town

Chasing down a dream
Like a shadow in the breeze
From a thousand miles away
Wish you were right in front of me

Man, I really messed up now
Too afraid to say it out loud
I can barely breathe, who'm I tryin' to be?
I'm still tryin' to figure it out
Man, I really messed up now

Clipped those wings and I came back home
Tried my best just to carry on
Stick-and-poke tattoos meant nothin' to me
As far as east to west and not a memory
Mm, mm

Man, I really messed up now
Too afraid to say it out loud
I can barely breathe, who'm I tryin' to be?
I'm still tryin' to figure it out
Am I too proud to say it out loud?

Chasing down a dream
Like a shadow in the breeze
From a thousand miles away
Wish you were still in front of me

I don't wanna mess up now
Too afraid to say it out loud
I can barely breathe, who'm I tryin' to be?
I'm still tryin' to figure it out
Man, I really messed up now

Ball and Chain

Flirting with suspicion
Staring through the glass
Another false transaction
A production of the past
I was lost in fabrication
The finish line was fixed
The code was falling fast
And it was stacking up like bricks

(Doot-doot-doot-doot-doot-doot-doot-doot, do-do)
(Doot-doot-doot-doot-doot-doot-doot-doot, do-do)

I may never see you again
It's a ball and chain
With the golden handcuffs
You can carry me away
If I say my bad, you can trust in that
Only one holds the keys
To the ball and chain

Cut that ball and chain
Cut that ball and chain
Cut that ball and chain

Lost sense of direction
Just a shadow in the haze
My parasitic past life
Halfway in a daze
I saw that in a distance
That portrait of the past
Etched within an echo
The first will be the last

(Doot-doot-doot-doot-doot-doot-doot-doot, do-do)
(Doot-doot-doot-doot-doot-doot-doot-doot, do-do)

I may never see you again
It's a ball and chain
With the golden handcuffs
You can carry me away
If I say my bad, you can trust in that
Only one holds the keys
To the ball and chain

Cut that ball and chain
Cut that ball and chain
Cut that ball and chain

I may never see you again
It's a ball and chain
With the golden handcuffs
You can carry me away
If I say my bad, you can trust in that
Only one holds the keys
To the ball and chain

Good Time

I'm the bright lights, I'm the feature
I'm a spacehead, I'm a creature
I'm a lover, I'm a fable
I'm the glutton at your table
Tap dancing, dancing in the tapestry
Last standing, gasping for relief
A fracture in the fantasy
Space elevator, serendipity
Once more repeat it back to me
My answer to the apathy
Up, front, back to the balcony
Get lit

Everybody had a good time
Everybody had a good time
Everybody had a good time
Better yet, I'm getting mine
Everybody had a good laugh
Laughed until we cried
Everybody had a good time
Everybody had a good

Whatever you need from me
My heart to hold, my hands, my feet
My tongue, my cheek, my teeth, my more
And more and more and more, wants more and more
On unbelief, my trust, my lust transparently
Here in what you see, not only speech
Too shy to share my tears in dreams, ice cream
Get lit

Everybody had a good time
Everybody had a good time
Everybody had a good time
Better yet, I'm getting mine
Everybody had a good laugh
Laughed until we cried
Everybody had a good time
Everybody had a good

In the morning, we wake up
Woke up and the sun's still shining
Feeling fuzzy and shook up
Woke up and we're still alive

Everybody had a good time
Everybody had a good time
Everybody had a good time
Better yet, I'm getting mine
Everybody had a good laugh
Laughed until we cried
Everybody had a good time
Everybody had a good

Shy Eyes

Take, take this broke
This broken heart
This heart of mine
Break, these chains are broken
Unclothe my eyes with waves of light

I've always been a fighter, these chains
But kept it out of sight, no lie
Caught in my emotions
Take these wrongs, make them right

What's behind those shy eyes, shy eyes?
Have I become a past time, passed by?
What's behind those shy eyes, shy eyes?
Shy eyes, shy eyes

You cut through my human condition
You cut through my human condition

Face to face, hiding right behind
Those eyes
Shake my disposition
Test my faith, bathed in light

What's behind those shy eyes, shy eyes?
Have I become a past time, passed by?
What's behind those shy eyes, shy eyes?
Shy eyes, shy eyes

You cut through my human condition
You cut through my human condition

Blooming flowers wake
Daylight's at the gate
Wherever I roam
My soul to take

I don't believe those shy eyes, shy eyes
I won't be just a past time, passed by
What's behind those shy eyes, shy eyes?
Shy eyes, shy eyes
What's behind those shy eyes, shy eyes?
Have I become a past time, passed by?
What's behind those shy eyes, shy eyes?
Shy eyes, shy eyes

You cut through my human condition
You cut through my human condition
You cut through my human condition

Silent Picture

He stood outside the door
At the bottom of the staircase
Trying to put the pieces together
Like a silent film he'd watched a thousand times before
She sank beneath the sea
Silently, she screams
Dried her eyes and sighed
Lying on the bathroom floor

I can hardly breathe
I can't breathe
I can't breathe

I don't wanna talk about it
I don't wanna know if you're there
I don't wanna think about it
I just want the world to disappear
Take it out on me, turn your back on me
Oh, yeah
T-take it out on me, turn your back on me
I don't care

She scrambled for the keys
Bags were packed to leave
No more lies or wasted time
Lying on the bathroom floor

I can hardly breathe
I can't breathe
I can't breathe
I'll just rest in peace
Rest in peace
Bury me, bury me

I don't wanna talk about it
I don't wanna know if you're there
I don't wanna think about it
I just want the world to disappear
Take it out on me, turn your back on me
Oh, yeah
T-take it out on me, turn your back on me
I don't care

I don't wanna talk about it
I don't wanna know if you're there
I don't wanna think about it
I just want the world to disappear
Take it out on me, turn your back on me
Oh, yeah
T-take it out on me, turn your back on me

Same

It was lightning in a bottle
Happened in a fraction
Gasping for a breath
Smoke fresh everlasting
Just a glance, what's the chance?
Frantic in a bubble
Classic move, play it cool
For an instant, it was magic

I don't wanna play those games (ah)
Will we ever be the same? (Ah)
I don't wanna play those games (ah)
Will we ever be the same, same, same, same, same?

When two bodies feel like quicksand
Pulse project vibrations
Asked me for my coat
And you give me your jacket
In my mind, yeah, you're mine
Spill another glass of wine
What's the move? Set the mood
For an instant, it was magic

I don't wanna play those games (ah)
Will we ever be the same? (Ah)
I don't wanna play those games (ah)
Will we ever be the same, same, same, same, same?

Did you ever stop to think about it?
Did you ever stop to think about it?
Did you ever stop to think about it?
Did you ever stop to think?

I don't wanna play those games (ah)
Will we ever be the same? (Ah)
I don't wanna play those games (ah)
Will we ever be the same, same, same, same, same?

Over Your Shoulder

Seafoam broke the sailor's mast
Constellations on his back
Watching his image ripple past
Just a drop, life moves fast

So, outta my head now
Laying my head down

Don't look back over your shoulder
I'm not saying don't ask
When it feels like it gets colder
Every season will pass

Shouldn't have kissed the gunner's daughter
But in that moment, we were brothers
Walk the plank just like my mother
Long, long, long lost love lullaby, sing

Laying your head down
When you're laying your head down

Don't look back over your shoulder
I know it's not easy to ask
When it feels like it gets colder
Every season will pass

Believe me, I'm experienced
Believe me, I'm experienced

Don't look back over your shoulder
You don't need me to ask
If it feels like it gets colder
Every season will pass
