lyrics

Scrabble letters, scribbled notes
And scrambled treasures
Find the X and find the tether
Chaperoning our time together

This is your competition
Ballet moves in sleeping kitchens
Witty words to fill the dishes
If you want the trophy, make it glisten

Place your bets on this gamble
Pace yourself, keep your hands full
Keep your hands full
Place your bets on this gamble
Pace yourself, keep your hands full
Keep your hands full

Kindergarten crushes
Crushed up pills and crashing punches
Grab the clutch and keep it coming
We find our things in sprawling bunches

This is your best decision
A good proposal will catch my interest
Interviews for new positions
And follow-ups to grant admission

Place your bets on this gamble
Pace yourself, keep your hands full
Keep your hands full
Place your bets on this gamble
Pace yourself, keep your hands full
Keep your hands full

How about we just give up
Don’t bother me with who owes what
I much prefer to barter
How about we just give up
Don’t bother me with who owes what
If you fetch the stick, I’ll throw it farther

Place your bets on this gamble
Pace yourself, keep your hands full
Keep your hands full
Place your bets on this gamble
Pace yourself, keep your hands full
Keep your hands full
Place your bets on this gamble
Pace yourself, keep your hands full
Keep your hands full
Place your bets on this gamble
Pace yourself, keep your hands full
Keep your hands full
