Songs > Onward & Upward > Lyrics

Now I can't dance for a minute
And my bones they resemble a penguin
Yeah and I got some of the things you never shown to you
So let me handle your worries
I don't mean to feel like I'm in a hurry
But if I had just one night you know the things I would do

Slithering like a serpent let me see what's inside
If I had a few to drink you know I have to apologize
At that same moment twice then I'm enjoying the view
So if you think it's all right
I'd stay with you tonight
You know I know what you see I'm show you something new

There's one thing that I needn't mention
I don't mean to take up all your attention
But if things I hope and think that you and me'll get me to
If I forget your name
Yeah you'll still be glad cause you came
But I think it's your genes that should've taken blame

Slithering like a serpent let me see what's inside
If I had a few to drink you know I have to apologize
Slithering like a serpent let me see what's inside
If I had a few to drink you know I have to apologize
Slithering like a serpent let me see what's inside
If I had a few I had a few I have to apologize
Slithering like a serpent let me see what's inside
If I had a few to drink you know I have to apologize

Wit and wisdom used to visit now and then
At first I wasn't talking, only listening
The overthinking tendency is a burden here
But the instances of technicality I'll forgive

I know, it's so obvious
Enough to solve the problem here
I know the system isn't working right
You know as well as I deserve’s too strong a word to write

The page it seems so open, there is too much space
Enough to fill but I'm not full of things to say
As pride is hurled at paper it can’t fill the blank
I’m guessing I’ll be thankful for the facts to thank

I know, it's so obvious
Enough to solve the problem here
But I know the system isn't working right
You know as well as I deserve’s too strong a word to write (a word to write)

I know, it's so obvious
Enough to solve the problem here
I know the system isn't working right
You know as well as I deserve’s too strong a word to write
