A Beginner
Foster the People Lyrics


I can’t blame you, and I can’t save you
But I will try
For you and I, for you and I
I won’t find out all the dirty little things that you’ve done
But I will try
I—I’m coming for you giants and you liars and your chariots of fire
You charmers with your anecdotes have started to show your true colors

Now I’m staring at the moon wondering why the bottom fell out
I’ve been searching for answers and there’s questions I’ve found
Open your eyes and share this burden somehow
Are you ready to drink
Or are you waiting to drown?

I would break you
Before I let you fall into the blind
For you and I, for you and I
I will breathe in all the truth I can stomach
If it keeps you alive
We’ve changed the dreamers and the preachers and the wise men on the hill
To concrete stepping smilers terrified to lose their power and control

Yeah we’ve been crying for a leader to speak like the old prophets
The blood of the forgotten wasn’t spilled without a purpose, or was it?

Now I’m staring at the moon wondering why the bottom fell out
I’ve been searching for answers and there’s questions I’ve found
Open your eyes and share this burden somehow
Are you ready to drink
Or are you waiting to drown?

Yeah
Ah—ah

Yeah you’ll never be whole, yeah you’ll never be whole
Until you lose control
And think freely to smash the wall of apathy
Stop your self-importance and lift the weight off somebody else
Yeah you’ll never be whole, yeah you’ll never be whole
Until you lose control
And stop drinking the wine that’s been dripping
From the lips of the gluttons and envying their bloody teeth
Yeah you’ll never be whole, yeah you’ll never be whole
Until you lose control

I can't blame you
I can't save you
But I will try
For you and I
For you and I
I won't find out
All the dirty little things that you've done
But I will try
I-I'm coming for you giants and you liars and your chariots of fire
You charmers with your anecdotes have started to show your true colors

Now I'm staring at the moon
Wondering why the bottom fell out
I've been searching for answers and there's questions I've found
Open your eyes and share this burden somehow
Are you ready to drink or are you waiting to drown?

I would break you
Before I let you fall into the blind
For you and I
For you and I
I will breathe in
All the truth I can stomach
If it keeps you alive
We've changed the dreamers and the preachers and the wise men on the hill
To concrete stepping smilers terrified to lose their power and control
We've been crying for a leader to speak like the old prophets
The blood of the forgotten wasn't spilled without a purpose or was it?

Now I'm staring at the moon wondering why the bottom fell out
I've been searching for answers and there's questions I've found
Open your eyes and share this burden somehow
Are you ready to drink or are you waiting to drown?

Yeah you'll never be whole, yeah you'll never be whole
Until you lose control
And think freely to smash the wall of apathy
Stop your self-importance and lift the weight off somebody else
Yeah you'll never be whole, yeah you'll never be whole
Until you lose control
And stop drinking the wine that's been dripping
From lips of the gluttons and envying their bloody teeth
Yeah you'll never be whole, yeah you'll never be whole
Until you lose control

I'm convinced Foster the People don't have bad songs.

Apollo Gram

@ashiiu that’s honestly what makes a lot of them so great. they experimented a lot with stuff they hadn’t done before. Lotus Eater, Pay The Man and Loyal Like Sid And Nancy are the songs i think of most when i consider strange choices by FTP, and i feel like their differences from the rest of FTP’s songs as a whole aren’t necessarily bad things. Weird musical choices and styles can be good; different isn’t always bad. Musicians and bands will grow and change and experiment; otherwise it just gets boring.

See: The White Stripes, Queen, Yes, Cage The Elephant, Panic! At The Disco.

idk man,,, sacred hearts club had some questionable choices in their beats, i really want to like them but its kind of hard to get into some of them
