lyrics

Dope
Everything is coming out the capsules
Dope
Everyone is made by the bagful
Every time I seem to reach the top I’m coming down
But then again without you I would never leave
the ground

Amazing
Amazing
Amazing
Amazing amazing dope tales
Amazing dope tales
Amazing

Dope
Everything is coming out the capsules
Dope
Gonna tell us how you got those stripes, baby?
Every time I turn around I hear another story
About a lonely pop star who appeared in all his glory

Amazing
Amazing
Amazing
Amazing amazing dope tales
Amazing dope tales
Amazing

Ah
Half a dozen rainbows growing out of his brain
Well, he handed me some sunshine and he showed me the moon
Well you may have thought it’s midnight but it’s
High noon, high noon

Shoot it baby shoot it baby shoot it baby shoot
it baby
Do it up do it up do it up do it
Shoot it up shoot it baby shoot it baby shoot it baby
Do it up do it up do it up do it
Get off get off get off get off

Dope
Everything is coming out the capsules
Dope
Everyone is makin it by the bagful
Every time I seem to reach the top I’m coming down
But then again without you I would never leave
the ground

Amazing
Amazing
Amazing
Amazing amazing dope tales
Amazing dope tales
Amazing
