getzebu As well as the rooftops album, this collection of songs creates the musical miracle of stripping melancholic feelings of their depressing nature and leaves me with the urge to dance and turn until the mental weight has been centrifugated to the remote corners of my perceived presence. Muse on, guys!

Notches 03:58
Dressed up to stay all alone In your own shiny way Get out to be just someone In your own shiny way You’ve got bones between your teeth You have notches on the wall You have your own way of leaving You’ve got to rule the world alone Refrain: Oh uh Oh Oh Streets keep us up, and breathing Oh uh Oh Oh Ain’t it funny how things end? We felt Worn out and tired, a little thin Fucked up and anything in between Worn out and tired, a little thin Fucked up and anything in between Make things easy Everyone is on your side The air is freezing Everyone is on your side You’ve got bones between your teeth You have notches on the wall You have your own way of leaving You’ve got to rule the world alone Bridge: And you’ve got some things to give You’ve got your skin and bones And you live in between

Blanks 03:55
Woke up like a mess tonight Dazzling neon lights mark the end I’m reaching out to find a friend And it starts all over again Refrain: When you left You didn’t take a thing My eyes are shooting blanks I’m always on my knees And you lie, when you’re drunk And I’m just a perfect piece of shit I’m reaching out to find some friends And it starts all over again Refrain: When you left You didn’t take a thing My eyes are shooting blanks I’m always on my knees

I’ve been away The message couldn’t be clearer I fought the day To get along with shit And eyes like diamonds I was dead drunk then I was licking toes just For a little while Refrain: Move on at your side of the world man Got to brush off the dirt of these years and Swallow the sun and little sins And swallow anything Yes in this room I’m the wildest dancer We’re made to move We swallow blood And eyes like diamonds I was dead drunk then I was licking toes just For a little while C-Part Locked up whining in empty rooms And certain memories are standing in line Yes how the past tugs at your sleeve But boy, you get them off your mind

Time & Space 03:36
While breathing silence A sense of cold cuts through the air The saddest words that Took me from here to there The blonde just froze the air While that boy bent time and space Yes, everyone was there To light up and fall from grace Refrain: What you waiting for Won’t you just come around? Got to let things go Walk right through that door What you waiting for It will end in tears With these words on bedroom walls Oh just to be clear An angry heart, a desperate soul The blonde just froze the air While that boy bent time and space Yes, everyone was there To light up and fall from grace Refrain: What you waiting for Won’t you just come around? Walk right through that door What you waiting for

Old Tapes 04:02
You left marks upon my favourites And got your own way to despise My old and lovely treasures Cause you’re listening to the flip-sides I got that face that says You wont get me With an brief first song I got that face that says You wont get me with irrelevance Refrain: So get up The billboard shows the special ones The sound of a first love Carved in minds and old tapes And we got lost in cars and dreams and Singing our songs slow and decent We got lost While listening to these old tapes You say you see through the people, By talking about books And what the like and haven’t done yet Or they’re predominantly sad

Everyone’s asleep that night I’ve come to find familiar lights Hesitate to cross the line I’ve dropped into your streets alive Never thought about love When I thought about home I came to find the old ghosts It’s not that I gave up at all Bridge: “On rooftops and fire escapes A strange game of hide and seek On rooftops we escape A game of cat and mouse” You’re hiding your tired skin I’ve dropped into your streets And keep on walking I’ve dropped into your blood And keep on seeking that night Bridge: “On rooftops and fire escapes A strange game of hide and seek On rooftops we escape A game of cat and mouse” Refrain: In the quiet I’m Gonna meet your ghost at the riverside While playing our first show Things felt all right We all just found our reasons
