No Royals – EP

Great White

Just smile and act calm,
swipe the sweat of your palms.
Look in her eyes and pretend,
that all you want to be is a friend.
The crew goes on a night out
You’re excited to see her again
But then you see her in a white cloud
offerin’ love to another man

The fish in the sea – there are plenty I guess
but I want the Great White and not anything less
The fish in the sea – there are plenty I guess
but I want the Great White and not anything less

She’s just a reflection, distorted and blurred
You question your affection – and all you ever felt for her
She takes it all I say – one hand thicker than the other
thinking loves a buffet yeah she don’t seem to bother

The fish in the sea – there are plenty I guess
but I want the Great White and not anything less
The fish in the sea – there are plenty I guess
but I want the Great White and not anything less

You want to move on but you’re walking on shards
and the pain won’t be gone until you shuffled your cards

The fish in the sea – there are plenty I guess
but I want the Great White and not anything less
The fish in the sea – there are plenty I guess
love is a mess!

Hide

Tumblin’ over rusting roads
Aren’t these shadows coming close?
I don’t know what to do – I’m stuck here with you
He’s hiding in the mist
but I know that you exist – cause

I’m a psycho try to hide you ain’t got anywhere to go
I’m a psycho try to hide you ain’t got anywhere to go
Ever so close to you, mind bending attitude, stares shining right through you cause
I’m a psycho try to hide you ain’t got anywhere to go!

Stumblin’ over dusty bones
Weeping, half-constructed homes
I don’t know what to do – I blame it on you
He’s hiding in the mist.
but I know that you exist – cause

I’m a psycho try to hide you ain’t got anywhere to go
I’m a psycho try to hide you ain’t got anywhere to go
Ever so close to you, mind bending attitude, you just want to make me feel like
I’m a psycho try to hide you ain’t got anywhere to go!

Telecom

The table’s set for one
The lonely chef cooks gloom under the midnight sun
You search your empty glass for me
but amber eyes is all you see
You used to hate our fights
but now you miss those nights

After all those times, there’s one question on my mind
Are we still alive? Alive
I do feel the same – I do
I do – yeah yeah

The pillows are no substitute
Your covers are my empty suits
How long have I been gone
Now all we’ve got is Telecom
When the lights go out tonight
Will you have someone by your side

After all those times, there’s one question on my mind
Are we still alive? Alive
I do feel the same – I do
I do – yeah yeah

After all those times, there’s one question on my mind
Are we still alive? Alive
I do feel the same – I do
I do – yeah yeah

Powerklub

Just unlocked my phone and it’s this dick again
a spotlight from above and a half naked man
Proudly presenting what I don’t want to see
Boasting about the things he has achieved
He constantly reminds me of what I’d need to do
making me feel bad while I order my food
I’m probably gonna meet him at this party next week
and he will just be there to brag about his physique

I don’t want to talk to you cause you’re just telling me how much you lift
You’re last trip to the Powerklub was #lit and now you’re #ripped
Please don’t spam my Instagram – I know that you can bench a lot
and from your post know your diet consists of protein shakes and pot

Admittedly he might look better than me
I just drink alone with my new bachelors degree
Of course he is more healthy – impressing all the boys
He doesn’t even drink – but I’m not doing roids
Who would wear a tanktop to a party in the winter?
I’m sitting in the corner hoping for a match on Tinder …
Why would you ruin this for everyone?
You’re a shit story teller and I’m trying to have fun

I don’t want to talk to you cause you’re just telling me how much you lift
You’re last trip to the Powerklub was #lit and now you’re #ripped
Please don’t spam my Instagram – I know that you can bench a lot
and from your post know your diet consists of protein shakes and pot

I don’t want to talk to you cause you’re just telling me how much you lift
You’re last trip to the Powerklub was #lit and now you’re #ripped
Please don’t spam my Instagram – I know that you can bench a lot
and from your post know your diet consists of protein shakes and pot

I don’t want to talk to you cause you’re just telling me how much you lift
You’re last trip to the Powerklub was #lit and now you’re #ripped
Please don’t spam my Instagram – I know that you can bench a lot
and from your post know your diet consists of protein shakes and pot

The Bad Seems Better

She calls for me when I’m tryin’ to sleep
Saturday night I’m tryin’ to fight
The urgent feeling that she needs me
To be by her side (at midnight)

I can’t take my mind off her
The bad seems better under my covers
The road I chose the fatal way
As I get close I fade away
I can’t take my mind off her

She calls for me, still half asleep
Her voice alleviates the pain
Don’t hate the player hate the game
“Get up! You’ll be all right” (by midnight)

I can’t take my mind off her
The bad seems better when she’s my lover
The road I chose the fatal way
As I get close I fade away
I can’t take my mind off her

The mirror tells a silent lie
About a truth I just can’t hide
I grab my coat – I need some air
Lump in my throat – I feel her stare
Painful steps towards the door – Just one more
She takes my hand – Turns me around
She zips my lips – “Don’t make a sound”
Thoughts racing through my mind
She is tempting by design
Her close approaching eyes made me change my mind
And then we kissed – felt her embrace
The bad is better in this case

Pretty To Look At

Are you with me or should I go?
Everybody here is looking at your rear. Oh no!
This had me thinking: maybe you were just …

Pretty to look at!
Now I’m wondering if there could have been a little more or if you were just pretty to look at
Scrolling through my phone and all the pictures are telling me you were so pretty to look at
You sharing a cigarette when i don’t even smoke just ain’t pretty to look at

I should have asked: “Do you wanna go? You wanna go?”
Get down on your knees show me you can … Oh no!
This had me thinking: maybe you were just …

Pretty to look at!
Now I’m wondering if there could have been a little more or if you were just pretty to look at
Scrolling through my phone and all the pictures are telling me you were so pretty to look at
You sharing a cigarette when i don’t even smoke just ain’t pretty to look at
