lyrics

The rules don’t apply unless you know how to read ‘em
Your bird’s not gonna fly unless you remember to feed him
And you can’t start your engine until you turn the key
You’re the kind of girl who takes her pears straight from the tree

Your fire’s not gonna start unless you know how to light it
Your match ain’t gonna burn unless you remember to ignite it
And no matter what you do it doesn’t change who I know you to be
You’re the kind of girl who needs to take another second to breathe

From the roots to the petal
You’re a red-hot piece of metal
Who burns our hands like fire
And whether you’re silver or whether you’re gold
I’m not the one who’s growing cold
But I could be a hero for hire

You can’t change the gear if you’re already in motion
You can’t change the color or temperature of the ocean
And no matter who I am it doesn’t mean I don’t see what I’ve got
You’re the kind of girl who doesn’t preach what she’s taught

From the roots to the petal
You’re a red-hot piece of metal
Who burns our hands like fire
And whether you’re silver or whether you’re gold
I’m not the one who’s growing cold
But I could be a hero for hire

From the roots to the petal
You’re a red-hot piece of metal
Who burns our hands like fire
And whether you’re silver or whether you’re gold
I’m not the one who’s growing cold
But I could be a hero for hire

Teenage Octopus Ann Arbor, Michigan

After lead guitarist Bobby Lewis formed Teenage Octopus in 2009, the band wasted no time hitting the Ann Arbor music scene with their fresh, unique sound. Influenced by alternative-rock bands such as Radiohead, Wilco and Spoon as well as jam-band pioneers Phish, the four-piece from University of Michigan's goal is to intertwine smart melodies and explorative jams. ... more
