Torches

indie indie rock electropop indie pop love at first listen

The Helena Beat Songfacts says that bass player Cubbie Fink explained at the Lollapalooza festival that the song is about: "The facade in Hollywood that there's all these young, beautiful people partying in this drug culture and getting lost in it. They're searching for the fountain of youth." Read more on Last.fm.

foster the people
Sometimes life it takes you by the hand.
It puts you down before you know it
It's gone and you're dead again.
I've been in places and I won't pretend
That I make it I just follow my head.
When it's strange to take a walk downstairs
Sweep u all up on a corner and pay for my bread.
You know that I cannot believe my own truth
To show what a truth, it's got nothing to lose.

Yeah yeah and it's okay.
I tie my hands up to a chair so I don't fall that way.
Yeah yeah and I'm alright.
I took a sip of something poison but I'll hold on tight.

You know those days when you wanted to choose
To not get out of bed and get lost in your head again.
You play the game but you gotta cut
Cuz' you're coming down hard your joints are off stud.
I tried to say that's not the only way
I never knew if I could convince myself to change.
You were pacing I was insecure.
Slip and fall I got the calls of the prison I was living in.

Yeah yeah and it's okay.
I tie my hands up to a chair so I don't fall that way.
Yeah yeah and I'm alright.
I took a sip of something poison but I'll hold on tight.

Yeah yeah and it's okay.
I tie my hands up to a chair so I don't fall that way.
Yeah yeah and I'm alright.
I took a sip of something poison, a sip of something poison, poison.

Yeah yeah and it's okay.
I tie my hands up to a chair so I don't fall that way.
Yeah yeah and I'm alright.
I took a sip of something poison, but I'll hold on tight.

Yeah yeah and it's okay.
I tie my hands up to a chair so I don't fall that way.
Yeah yeah and I'm alright.
I took a sip of something poison, a sip of something poison, poison.
