Lyrics

Some night kids, so godless
One day it’s gonna be my [?]
Black sand on all our beaches
Witchcraftsmen [?]
But what I really wanna know is

Do I look like a fool?
'Cause I must be a fool
Don't hold on to precious metals like I do
Do, do
Don't hold on to precious metals like I do
Do, do

There’s another deer in the prarie
Give my best to the ones that [?] it
Take a flight trip, to Jakarta
All the kids in the shores make it louder
I let the feelings and all of the tears let go
I let the secrets and all of the schemes that don't go my way
I wish you’ll come back, didn’t want to run back
I wish you’ll come back, but you wanna come back
And I’m fine too

Do I look like a fool?
'Cause I must be a fool
Don't hold on to precious metals like I do
Do (ah), do (ah)
Don't hold on to precious metals like I do (ah)
Do (ah), do (ah, ah)
