Lyrics[]

[Lana Del Rey & Matt Maeson]:
Pushing past the limit, trippin' on hallucinogenics
My cigarette burnt my finger 'cause I forgot I lit it
Rippin' with my sinners 'cause fuck it, man, I ain't no beginner
And then I crawled back to the life that I said I wouldn't live in

'Cause I just couldn't open up, I'm always shiftin' (Hm)
Go find yourself a man who's strong and tall and Christian

Pushing past the limit, trippin' on hallucinogenics
My cigarette burnt my finger 'cause I forgot I lit it
Drunken in Seattle, two more Xans and without a paddle
I don't remember your face or your hair or your name or your smile

'Cause I just couldn't open up, I'm always shiftin'
Go find yourself a man who's strong and tall and Christian

Pushing past the limit, trippin' on hallucinogenics
And then I crawled back to thе life that I said I wouldn't live in

[Matt Maeson & Lana Del Rey]:
'Cause I carriеd on like the wayward son (Oh)
And now through and through, I have come undone
And now I am just but the wayward man
What with my bloodshot eyes and my shaky hands
'Cause I carried on like the wayward son (Ooh)
And now through and through, I have come undone
And now I am just but the wayward man
What with my bloodshot eyes and my shaky hands

Pushing past the limit, trippin' on hallucinogenics
My cigarette burnt my finger 'cause I forgot I lit it
