Foster The People – Pay the Man Lyrics

Pay the Man by Foster The People
Album : Sacred Hearts Club
Released : 2017

What you mean, what you mean?
What you mean, man, what you mean?
What you mean, yeah, what you see?
What you see, yeah, oh yeah

Well I need a little something to pull my head off
Need a little something to pull my head off, yeah
Need a little something
Because I’ve been running from the truth
Will never lose
Lies come from loose teeth
Tied to the noose
Climbing up my own tree hoping it can hold
All the things I’ve seen but I’ve chosen to ignore
Well, I said, well I believe I’ve been well fed, yeah
But the wolf’s not dead

Say what you love, it’s alright
Don’t be afraid to find the light
Embrace the day, like night
We hear the fire
We all go wild again
And you have the name
Of someone I love
You said, just keep it true
Lift up your name
Seasons change
You know it’ll never be the same
We’ll see the sun again
Before it fades
I just wanna say that I love you

Pay the man, pay the man
Got to pay the man
Run as fast as you can
Call out to God, praise to the Most High
Call out for help cause I’m playing with fire
Call out to mountains till my voice goes faint
Echoes through time then goes back with new strength

And when it’s raining
We’re sailing
Oh yeah, we’re sailing
We’re sailing

I’m off the leash
I go to war for peace
Must’ve been touching everything that I can
I’ve got blood on my hands
Guess I’m going deaf with the cry of this sin
Please forgive me I don’t understand
We all believe we’ve been well fed, yeah

The deaf man heard what the mute man said
Then they all followed where the blind man led

Say what you love, it’s alright
Don’t be afraid to find the light
Embrace the day, like night
We hear the fire
We all go wild again
And you have the name
Of someone I love
You said, just keep it true
Lift up your name
Seasons change
You know it’ll never be the same
We’ll see the sun again
Before it fades
I just wanna say that I love you

(Pay the man, pay the man, pay the man)
Pay the man, you got to pay the man
Pay the man, you got to pay the man
Pay the man
I was laughing real hard until my teeth fell out
Laughing real hard until my teeth fell out
Was laughing real hard but my teeth fell out
Need a little something, yeah
Need a little something
(A little something, little something, little something)

You said, just keep it true
Lift up your name
Seasons change
You know it’ll never be the same
We’ll see the sun again
Before it fades
I just wanna say that I love you

Can’t you see
Can’t see me
Can’t see me
Can’t see me
And can’t see me
Can’t see me
We all run when the light comes on
Am I wrong, for wanting it all?
But I warned you

● “Pumped Up Kicks ”

[ Quotable ]
Yeah, the sleight of my hand is now a quick-pull trigger
I reason with my cigarette
Then say, “Your hair’s on fire, you must’ve lost your wits, yeah?”

● “Call It What You Want”

[ Quotable ]
We’ve got nothing to lose
You better run and hide
Yeah you’ve crossed the line
I’ve got a knife behind my back (just sayin’)
We’ve got nothing to prove
