Flobots - Jet Pack

rate me


I will not bend

I will not bow

I will not break

I'll stand my ground

won't be afraid

to sing out loud

to sing out loud

to sing out loud

the visions of what's involved

the tensions you must resolve

distractions will just dissolve


he's encountered a setback,

he isn't down to let that

keep him on the ground. Press that

button- ignite the jetpack!

launch pad shrink disappear

past the brink the

atmosphere's thinning and his

plasma's tingly

planes appear to be birds and

birds appear to be bees and

he's hearing the words that

occur to him for no reason

"What are you living your life for

what are you willing to die for

what do you believe to be the grain of truth you can provide for

this grand adventure?

Is it your plan to spend your

days batted about by

these random events?

Are you fueled by another engine

lighting a fire beneath?

Have you breathed and seen your breath in the winds

and have you reached that point?"


you only get to see this

earth one time it's

axis tilt's it

changes climates

plates shift weights and

continents drift and

draft twisted fates and

monstrous frictions

fragmentations stress and


depression and confusion and

bad relations use your

imagination elude their


whether the crowd gives boos or

congratulations the blue's just

something you move through toward the

vast expanses of space on the

universal infinite

path to emancipation the

gravity of the planet

grips you but don't abandon

ship you feel the pressures in

side can you withstand it?


the heights you'll reach the

depths you'll delve to

depends on the propulsion

system that propels you

methods that compel you

messages they sell you

punishments they give you

for doing what they tell you

but we've got passion

they've got prisons

you've got the freedom to

make a decision

will you abandon

all your addictions

take your stand and

live your convictions

what've you got to lose what've

you been taught to chose

what're you so hot to prove with your

beautiful socks and shoes

the costumes' frayed cloth covers

skin like a shroud

exhaust fumes fade off in the wind

like a cloud
