Oh as we share this simple night
Do you understand that I
I could never tell a lie

So we all know by now
That you are your favorite thing
Oh when I hear you coming now

So please allow me to introduce myself
I'm the one that you talk about
Imagine if you held me any tighter
It will be just as easy to leave me and let me go

It's the way that you are
And you can't breathe without me

Take a few steps back and just watch
The sun sets around me everyday
With our heads in the clouds, its hard to see whats going on the floor
I know that every time I sing you will want to sing along
Lets try our hardest to do, what has already been done

Bunch of boys that have it easy
Oh they live in a dream
But its not that simple no, sometimes we feel just like machines

(can't breathe without me)

Take a few steps back and just watch
The sun sets around me everyday
With our heads in the clouds, its hard to see what's going on the floor
I know that every time I sing you will want to sing along
Lets try our hardest to do, what has already been done

Take a few steps back and listen
My voice will make you shake
Every inch of you now, I know
(they're gonna make you wanna tell a lie)
They're gonna make you wanna tell a lie!

Stare, all you want
Cause you know that were on top
This is all that we know
This is everything you want
If you can't stand on your own
Then speak up let us know
Tones will change,
Curtains will drop
Who knew the top would be so fucking ugly?

Stare, all you want
Cause you know that were on top
This is all I've ever known
This is everything you want
If you can't stand on your own
Then speak up, let us know
Tones will change and curtains will drop
Who knew the top would be so fucking ugly?

I know that everytime I see you, we'll want to sing along
Lets try our hardest to do, what has already been done x2

    General CommentI think this song is about their old bands... Minus the sing from Pierce the Veil... Two of the singers were kicked out of their band... The only part that doesn't make sense if I'm right is...

    Imagine if you held me any tighter
    It will be just as easy to leave me and let me go

    Everything else fits in what I'm thinking... Kind of like them talking shit to their old bands... Like they are better... They are everything and their old bands are nothing without them??? maybe, possibly...

    "I'm gonna make you hate me to the bone"x2

    My InterpretationI think this song is about fame. Isles and Glaciers was a group of artists who had previously tasted fame. They are expressing their thoughts towards themselves, and that is they are very powerful and very important.
    They talk about how they are very big and powerful, and god-like to fans. In the 2nd verse they point out that it wasn't easy to get there. They had to work hard, and it's still diffucult. Being so big comes with consequences "Sometimes [they] feel just like machines"
    Durring the bridge "stare all you want..." I think they are referencing the fans again. They want to help their fans, but they are still on top.

    General CommentThis is very rough. I'm missing quite a few. If you have any idea what they are, please feel free to post and I'll edit if it sounds good.

    General CommentIn stead of "Oh they listen and cheat?"
    It could be "Oh, they live in a dream"

    "Tones will change, curtains will drop"
