"The Tape" as written by and Sondre Lerche Vaular....
Now they're calling for the second time today
Asking for to borrow those two tapes again
Is it really worth the struggle of covering up?
On the brink and learning how to live with it
Got experience from method toting deep within
And they say it's so inflammable
Am I caught in a trap with all the remains of a letdown?
All the remains of a letdown

Speak out if you got it
Watch out if you run
Since I heard someone died at a screening downtown of a tape

Now they're running round drawing circles and
Living up to everything you think of them
Such a senseless slender guy and his greater half

On a mission for the local government
Looking for a tape that's gonna pay the rent
And they say it's so inflammable
The cats will whine the dogs will itch
So bury the beat and forget them
Raise the remains of a letdown

Speak out if you got it
Watch out if you run
Since I heard someone cried at a screening
Downtown of a tape
Of a tape
OK

Now it's coming out the story we all knew
In equal parts all that you did and that you didn't do
Was it really worth the struggle of covering up?

Leave it playing till it spells the ending back
Is this what happens if you suffer like a cardiac?
Will you beg to be excused for always dumbing down
Or wrenching up
Now all that's left is a letdown
The view in reverse of a letdown

Speak up if you got it
Watch out if you run
Since I heard someone died at a screening
Downtown of a tape, of a tape
