You might have known, and I might have seen it.
When something goes off you get mad, you complain.
Hold out your tongue girl and take what I'm giving,
because Ellie
because Ellie,
Yeah she said
yeah she said it's safe.
Do you think it's safe?

I've found my daemons & I've found my daemons
I've tethered so tightly, they won't even speak.
Hold out your tongue boy, take what I'm leaving
'Cause Ellie
'Cause Ellie, she has managed to get in our way
Her and her "Ole'"

...Oh, get off the floor or I'll gouge out my eyes,
bomb both my ears & move on with this life
There is too much to do, there is too much to try
There is too much
There is too much
There is too much tonight

How was I to know that no eyes could have seen it?
Something so veiled, so out of my...
I'm survived by lint, by a peanut
If I can't get out
or get these songs and
get them out of my head

Ellie is it safe?Ellie is it sane?
Well Ole' to you nonetheless, say Ole'!
Well Ole' to you nonetheless, say Ole'?

Well I'll hold out my tongue and I'll take what I'm given
