lyrics

VERSE ONE

[E] when they [F] discovered they had electricity on stage
[E] they pulled the power plug [F] then lit the city on holidays
[F] a homage [E] fromage [F] they [E] who's us
[E] brought the sun back to Earth [F] dark ages shut
[E] amazing [F] shut the sky in absorb the light
[F] and then a cloud out to draw the blind and then
[E] ay you the self absorbent type?
[E] I donate my foresight to draw the blind
[F] Man lend a pencil let me draw the blind
[F] pretend you ain't prick like porcupine?
[F] it's in our power don't deny us this
[A] since we shut Valhalla gave the Vikings shtick


BRIDGE

[T] a voice sweet but firm that delivers a sting
[E] you're right Flip let's combine for this
[T] to balance the stakes it's the calm that she brings
[F] but my power's all blocked like some sinuses
[T] to return heads from clouds feet to ground and clarify everything
[F] ah shit my mum's calling gotta pike that's it


HOOK - TIFFA

it's the paradox of life
man is day and woman night
and the powers he describes
are devoured with the light


SCRATCHES - JPLATNUM


VERSE TWO

[E] when they bring the racquet Fedora won't play
[E] command the sands of time [F] and mould mountains with clay
[E] I killed Freddy in his dreams [F] our oppositions just fade
[E] even 300 Spartans at Athens Gates ran away
[E] ay Flip tell'em [F] what? [E] about the powers that be
[F] don't be pissed but that shit's powered by me
[F] Aiyyo Eno tell'em [E] what? [F] about defeating Goliath
[E] yeah I took the name David planned on keeping it quiet
[E] some choose to riot [F] others stand amazed
[A] hands raised crazed [E] we stand accused of being a cult
[E] so what I bring the thunder and you the lightning bolts
[A] I feel a jolt [E] why am I powerless to this assault?


BRIDGE

[T] the switch of perspective quick transfer of blame
[E] how does she do that? the transfer of pain
[T] a means of distraction your points start to fade
[F] it's pointless disjointed energy drained
[T] from your own words twisted her defense is made
[E] twisted tongue-blistered ex got me again


HOOK - TIFFA

it's the paradox of life
man is day and woman night
and the powers he describes
are devoured with the light


VERSE THREE

[E] now we keep face in the face of ineptitude
[E] and play with others' heads like this a game of [F] Guess Who?
[E] it's Eno [F] and Flip+Skip [E] two hedonists
[F] who bred hubris in the name of heroics
[E] with test tubes [F] think we bounded by greed?
[E] how many times we wound the world back in your hour of need?
[F] two puppet masters that these doubters cabn't see
[E] besides this beauty and the kudos that she's showering me


BRIDGE

[T] a few tricks up her sleeve to get just what she needs
[E] her admiration is devouring me
[T] soldier brought to his knees with a smile and tease
[F] yo E this girl's empowered not the power that be


VERSE FOUR

[E] fuck it I know beyond the compliments from her lips that
[E] she'll distract and pack away my time like shrink wrap
[F] this is shrink rap concentrate
[F] breathe deep and think back to yonder place
[F] and contemplate when Jim Platz operated
[E] and merged our minds [F] a new kind indoctrinated to Earth
[A] right there's no taming the two
[A] tidal waves caused on days when people sailing for hoots


BRIDGE

[T] her mind is made up now there's no time to lose
[F] huh she's found her way and i'm not paving the route
[T] and whispered an offer too good to refuse
[F] now she's got my world got me dazed [E] me confused
[T] Tactics she distracts with are all that she'll use
[T] admit there's another mind greater that you


HOOK - TIFFA

it's the paradox of life
man is day and woman night
and the powers he describes
are devoured with the light
