lyrics

Block out the sun Yaya
Parachute princess,
The movie is over,
Lay that dirt on me

Jump the dead, Yaya
Howl at the sun, Yaya
I see you changing,
Know you’re not the only one
Howl at the moon, Yaya,
Let it be done, Yaya
Ya, you’re not the only one
Running for the sun, Yaya
Running down the sun, Yaya.
Oh, you’re looking tall…
Quite a big fall.

Don’t let the ground scare you
Just a cinema mindfuck
For martyrdom dumdums
Wake up the sun, Yaya,
Suffering meanie,
The movie is over,
Lay that dirt on me

Jump the dead, Yaya
Howl at the sun, Yaya
I see you changing,
Know you’re not the only one
Howl at the moon, Yaya,
Let it be done, Yaya
I see you changing,
Know you’re not the only one
Howl at the moon, Yaya,
Howl at the sun, Yaya,
Ya, you’re not the only one,
Running for the sun, Yaya.

All we’re living hard
All our lives are dreams
Cool to Kumbaya
When you scream
Ah, but ground is good,
When it splits the body round and grounds you good
And its understood, its gonna be Love

Resurrection of,
Lala proves her love

Don’t let the ground scare ya,
Suffering papa
The movie is over…
