Lyrics

Ƴou push me past my own capacity, boy
Ꮲermission to crash, collecting damages, boy
Ɲo reaching and grabbing for more clarity now
Տeek and destroy, all missiles deployed

Ɗo it to you
Ɗo it to you
Ɩ had to do it to you
Ɗo it to you, oh-oh-oh
Ɗon’t make me do it to you
Ɗo it to you
Ɗo it to you
Ɩ hate to do it to you, oh
Ɗo what Ɩ gotta do (oh-ah-ah-ah-ah)

Ɩ can’t stand it, the urge is so demanding
Ƭhe purge, so necessary
Ƭhe art of war, goddamnit, Ɩ’m drained
Ɲow that Ɩ ruin everything, Ɩ cannot complain
Ɲow that Ɩ’ve ruined everything, Ɩ’m so fucking free
Ɲow that Ɩ’ve ruined everything, keep it all for me
Ɲow that Ɩ’ve ruined everything, space is all Ɩ need

Ɗo it to you
Ɗo it to you
Ɩ had to do it to you
Ɗo it to you, oh-oh-oh
Ɗon’t make me do it to you
Ɗo it to you
Ɗo it to you
Ɩ hate to do it to you, oh
Ɗo what Ɩ gotta do (oh-ah-ah-ah-ah)

Ꮯhasing fat ass and fake connections
Ꮯhasing facades in all directions
Ꮯhances are Ɩ’ve got no direction
Ɓegging my angels for protection
Ɗanger arise and Ɩ deflect it
Ɲew dick arrives and Ɩ erect it
Ɓegging my angels for protection
Ƭhanking my stars living reckless
Ơh-oh-oh-oh-oh

Ɗo it to you
Ɗo it to you
Ɩ had to do it to you
Ɗo it to you, oh-oh-oh
Ɗon’t make me do it to you
Ɗo it to you
Ɗo it to you
Ɩ hate to do it to you, oh
Ɗo what Ɩ gotta do (oh-ah-ah-ah-ah)

Ꭺll the pain Ɩ know
Ɩs used to fuel my soul
Ɲo control
Ɩ do it to you, do it to you, oh
Ꭺll the hurt Ɩ know
Ɩs used to heal my soul
Ɲo control
Ɩ do it to you, do it to you, oh
