Overcompensate song

[Intro]

(Diese kleine unheimliche Insel hat mich zu einer Waffe gemacht)

(Wir glauben beide—)

(Cette petite île étrange a fait de moi une arme)

(Nous croyons tous les deux que nous pouvons l’utiliser pour changer l’élan de cette guerre)

(Esta pequeña isla espeluznante me ha convertido en un arma)

(Ambos creemos que podemos usarlo para cambiar el impulso de esta guerra)

Welcome back to Trench

Welcome back to Trench

[Break]

I created this world

To feel some control

Destroy it if I want

So I sing Sahlo Folina

Sahlo Folina

(Wait, what? Wait, what?)

(Wait, what? Wait, what?)

[Verse 1]

Earned my stripes, three hundred tracks in my Adidas track jacket

Bless your ear holes while you react, acting

Gobsmacked, don’t hesitate

To maybe overcompensate

I feel like I was just here, same twitchin’ in my eyes

Don’t sleep on a boy who can’t fall asleep twice

In the same night, and won’t hesitate

To maybe overcompensate

[Chorus]

I said I fly by the dangerous bend symbol (Wait, what? Wait, what?)

Mm, don’t hesitate to maybe overcompensate

And then by the time I catch in my peripheral (Wait, what? Wait, what?)

Mm, don’t hesitate to maybe overcompensate

[Verse 2]

Where am I from? I was born right here, just now

Originated right in front of your eyes

If you can’t see, I am Clancy, prodigal son

Done running, come up with Josh Dun, wanted dead or alive

So now you pick who you serve, you bow to the masses

Get kicked to the curb for passin’ the classes

Half empty, half full, save half for your taxes

Then overtake your former self

[Chorus]

I fly by the dangerous bend symbol (Wait, what? Wait, what?)

Mm, don’t hesitate to maybe overcompensate

And then by the time I catch in my peripheral (Wait, what? Wait, what?)

Mm, don’t hesitate to maybe overcompensate

[Bridge]

Days feel like a perfect length

I don’t need them any longer, but for goodness’ sake

Do the years seem way too short for my soul, corazón

Way too short for my soul, corazón

The days feel like a perfect length

I don’t need them any longer, but for goodness’ sake

Do the years seem way too short for my soul, corazón

Way too short for my soul, corazón

[Refrain]

Earned my stripes, three hundred tracks in my Adidas track jacket

Bless your ear holes while you react, acting

Gobsmacked, don’t hesitate

To maybe overcompensate

[Chorus]

I said I fly by the dangerous bend symbol (Wait, what? Wait, what?)

Mm, don’t hesitate to maybe overcompensate

And then by the time I catch in my peripheral (Wait, what? Wait, what?)

Mm, don’t hesitate to maybe overcompensate
