Sleigh Bells, “Crown On The Ground” (Lyrics)

11 Oct

I do requests? (I do. And I’ll get to those this week soon. I promise.)

The problem (if it is one) with Sleigh Bells, is that there are these great lyrics buried under mountainous rhythm sections and sky-scraping riffs. I was asked to excavate. I tried my best, with all the tricks I know, but apart from isolating the vocal track (which I can’t do) and finding an a cappella (which I don’t think exists), the lyrics after the jump are probably the best I can do. And I’m not 100% sure they’re right.

Lyrics:

(Hey)

You never doubted it, you’re so proud of it
You’re still a child, right? And so proud of it?
You couldn’t care less, you like goodness
Even with time that’s endless, endless
You grew tired of this, it doesn’t bother us
No killshot and nobody know about it
You need a spotlight, you can just sit tight
You know that we’ll shine, ow-oh, ow-oh

Set, set that crown on the ground, and uh
Set, set that crown on the ground, and uh
Set, set that crown on the ground, and uh
Set, set that crown on the ground, and uh
Set, set that crown on the ground, and uh
Set, set that crown on the ground, and uh

Oh, oh-oh, oh-oh, oh-oh-oh-oh
Oh, oh-oh, oh-oh

(Hey)

You need some help, Jack, just need to backtrack
Do you think about someone in the habitat?
You have a new dream, you think about me
And that’s the same dream I’m dreamin’, I’m dreamin’
You never control, you don’t wanna know
There’s another show I’m playin’ in the window
Before you ballyhoo, it’s not another clue
You don’t have to, have to, have to

Set, set that crown on the ground, and uh
Set, set that crown on the ground, and uh
Set, set that crown on the ground, and uh
Set, set that crown on the ground, and uh
Set, set that crown on the ground, and uh
Set, set that crown on the ground, and uh

Oh, oh-oh, oh-oh, oh-oh-oh-oh
Oh, oh-oh, oh-oh

Set, set that crown (Set, set that crown)
Set, set that crown (Set, set that crown)
Set, set that crown (Set, set that crown)
Set, set that crown dow-own

Set, set that crown (Set, set that crown)
Set, set that crown (Set, set that crown)
Set, set that crown (Set, set that crown)
Set, set that crown dow-own

Set, set that crown (Set, set that crown)
Set, set that crown (Set, set that crown)
Set, set that crown (Set, set that crown)
Set, set that crown dow-own

Set, set that crown (Set, set that crown)
Set, set that crown (Set, set that crown)
Set, set that crown (Set, set that crown)
Set, set that crown dow-own-own
