Lyrics

[Verse 1] When I think of you in the city The sight of you among the sites I get this sudden sinking feeling Of a man about to fly Never kept me up before Now I’ve been awake for days I can’t fight it anymore I’m going through an awkward phase I am secretly in love with Everyone that I grew up with Do my crying underwater I can’t get down any farther All my drowning friends can see Now there is no running from it It’s become the crux of me I wish that I could rise above it [Chorus] But I stay down With my demons But I stay down With my demons [Verse 2] Buts and buzzards in the sky Alligators in the sewers I don’t even wonder why Hide among the younger viewers Huddle with them all night long The worried talk to God goes on I sincerely tried to love it Wish that I could rise above it [Chorus] But I stay down With my demons But I stay down With my demons [Verse 3] Can I stay here? I can sleep, on the floor Paint the blood and hang the palms, on the door Do not think I’m going places anymore Wanna see the sun come up above New York Oh, everyday I start so great Then the sunlight dims The less I look The more I see the pythons in the limbs Do not know what’s wrong with me The sour is in the cut When I walk into a room I do not light it up Fuck [Chorus] But I stay down With my demons But I stay down With my demons
