Buttons - Mac Miller

[Chorus]
Yeah, there's no answer and you call twice
Nobody be at my house
I was at the studio all night
Last night I slept on the couch
I might, wake up, do it all again
There's a world going crazy outside
But let's pretend that it's alright
We keep pretending that it's alright

[Verse 1]
Yeah, alright
Days get mixed up, schedules get switched up
Can't be in two places at once
So, I take a hit of the spliff that I lit up
And forget I had to be anywhere at all
Goddamn how the mighty will fall, they wanna see me gone
But I'm here in spite of it all, I never play along
You can keep the fear and self pity
I'd rather tell you who I am really, yeah
This is not a wakeup call
I'm not the hotel operator, I don't owe nobody favors
I don't know how the f_ck I've been around so long
Busy as an escalator in a crowded mall (uh-huh)
It's like, every year I realize my house too small
Get paid, upgrade, two cribs, new maids, more flights, flew planes
Live out my suitcase, lose days like loose change
I swear my life is on Blu-ray
Welcome to doomsday
The world needs a hero
And I am your Bruce Wayne
Kind of like Luke Cage
(Well, well, well, well, well) You keep on running
We keep on pushing your b_ttons

[Chorus]
Yeah, there's no answer and you call twice
Nobody be at my house
I was at the studio all night
Last night I slept on the couch
I might, wake up, do it all again
There's a world gone crazy outside
But let's pretend that it's alright
We keep pretending that it's alright

[Verse 2]
I run around with open scissors, they taking pictures
I could lose my head, they grow instead, gets only bigger
I put one foot in front of the other, I never settle
Waste your time with water and wine, I'm turning liquid to metals
Still the same dude that used to never be sure
When I was way more insecure, and I'd feel better before
No umbrellas never could weather the storm
No sympathy for the devil, too busy building a temple
I am looking beyond, leaving them looking
Hottest to grill, I'm putting them on when I be cooking
Sh_t, I keep on running if I have to
Medusa never turned me to a statue, no
I keep it moving, but keep it low
You can do your thing, sh_t, to each their own (yep, yep, yep)
But you better do something
We keep on pushing your b_ttons

[Chorus]
Yeah, there's no answer and you call twice
Nobody be at my house
I was at the studio all night
Last night I slept on the couch
I might, wake up, do it all again
There's a world gone crazy outside
But let's pretend that it's alright
We keep pretending that it's alright
