Overcompensate Lyrics

[Intro: Tyler Joseph]
(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 misteriosa me ha convertido en un arma)
(Ambos creemos que podemos usarla para cambiar el impulso de esta guerra)
Welcome back to Trench
Welcome back to Trench

[Break: Tyler Joseph]
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: Tyler Joseph]
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 twitching in my eyes
Don't sleep on a boy who can fall asleep twice
In the same night, and won't hesitate
To maybe overcompensate

[Chorus: Tyler Joseph]
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: Tyler Joseph]
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 passing the classes
Half empty, half full, save half for your taxes
Then overtake your former self

[Chorus: Tyler Joseph]
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: Tyler Joseph]
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: Tyler Joseph]
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: Tyler Joseph]
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
