🎧 We Were Promised Jetpacks - Bright Minds Lyrics

There was a hand that I couldn't shake

A black silhouette of a slithering snake

It was never enough, enough is enough

Tryna keep the peace is like maintaining a buzz

 

There was a cloud that wouldn't break up

Blocking all the sunlight out and keeping it dark

I could never sit back, I could never relax

If you could cut the tension it would split in two halves

 

There was a calm that preceded the storm

I'm in the brace position and I'm raising alarms

It was never enough, enough is enough

I'm hanging in awareness when they're causing a fuss

 

There was a code that I couldn't break

It's getting more frustrating for me each passing day

I could never sit back, I could never relax

Imagine the elation when it's finally hacked

 

Bright minds think alike

The fools smile and nod their heads

It's all pretence

 

There was a sum that was more than its parts

We should have stuck together but we've crumbled apart

It was never enough, enough is enough

I'm standing in a ship that's been abandoned and lost

 

I'll be the elephant who sits in the room

Blowing its own trumpet and I'm still in the mood

I could never sit back, I could never relax

I've got to keep my eyes before a subtle attack

 

There was a hand that I couldn't shake

A black silhouette of a slithering snake

It was never enough, enough is enough

Tryna keep the peace is like maintaining a buzz

 

A dormant volcano blows

Shelter as it spews its load

 

Bright minds think alike

The fools smile and nod their heads

It's all pretend

 

It's a buffer
