  • Caught in every pocket, from miles to fill
    So weak in the land, strong in the will
    I’ll be your beast and butter
    I’m there to see
    I’ll bring you were here, feel your disease
    I drink dirty water and make it clean
    With you I am the cure, I am the drug

    And we settle for a little bit more than everything
    We’re not elected but we will speak
    We’re not the chosen, but we believe
    And we settle for a little bit more than everything

    Bullets guided missiles … in sync
    Yeah motherless country only I’ve seen
    You are the taken rockets, I am the bomb
    I’ll teach you a lesson, so far up in
    Breathe in, turn the pages, just a real man
    You are … I am the poor

    And we settle for a little bit more than everything
    We’re not elected but we will speak
    We’re not the chosen, but we believe
    And we settle for a little bit more than everything

    I’m a non-state actor
    I’m a non-state actor
    I’m a non-state actor
    I’m a non-state
    I’m a non-state actor

    And we settle for a little bit more than everything
    We’re not elected but we will sṗeak
    We’re not the chosen, but we believe
    And we settle for a little bit more than everything
    a little bit more
    a little bit more
    a little bit more
    a little bit more
