The LaFontaines Lyrics


"Alpha"

What’s the legacy? Break the generational gap
Feeling old before my time, validation in that
Take the patience of a young man set to fail
In the quest for nothing less, than the alpha male
Tails of infidelity break out of the shade
They linger on the page, trust a feeling that stays
Forever is a long time, counting them days
Steady spinning the truth like Eddie Bernays
And I can tell that everything be getting harder to find
No money in your pocket when your credits declined
You want to win like these gentlemen wearing them suits?
You better come to the jungle and be bearing some fruits
‘Cause I don’t have a chip on my shoulder to grip on
As long as I have desire, I can Freudian slip on
The ruler with the rebels in tow, just letting you know
I’m right there wherever you go

[Chorus: Jamie]
Behind the disguise there’s nothing at all
Do you feel like you’ve been losing control?
There’s nowhere to hide when you’re on your own
Can’t you see that you got nothing to show?

[Verse 2: Kerr]
No apologies so let me echo it loud
Ironic that you stand on your own to garner a crowd
I’m on the next level and all opinions are flushed
Cause I came from the outside like I’m part of the crust
I’m gallus as fuck for anybody taking a swing
Or having a pop, so tell me when the penny gonna drop?
By myself like the picture was cropped
And I can feel I’m in the moment, I ain’t trying to be stopped
But there’s more than a few reasons to be feeling appalled
I don’t deliver my opinion from the back of the hall
Look at the trouble I bring, I never varnish a thing
No point in being a fighter if you’re scared of the ring
A stone throws not a terrible thing
But living in a glass house, you ain’t fit to be king
The crown ruler got the rebels in tow, just letting you know
I’m right there wherever you go

[Chorus: Jamie]
Behind the disguise there’s nothing at all
Do you feel like you’ve been losing control?
There’s nowhere to hide when you’re on your own
Can’t you see that you got nothing to show?

[Post-Chorus]
From the moment you feel defeated
And you see yourself letting go
When the same mistakes keep repeating
Take control, take control

[Bridge: Kerr]
What’s the legacy? Break the generational gap
Feeling old before my time, validation in that
Take the patience of a young man, set to fail
In the quest for nothing less, than the alpha male

[Chorus: Jamie]
Behind the disguise there’s nothing at all
Do you feel like you’ve been losing control?
There’s nowhere to hide when you’re on your own
Can’t you see that you got nothing to show?

[Post-Chorus]
From the moment you feel defeated
And you see yourself letting go
When the same mistakes keep repeating
Take control
