LUME – Tip of Your Thumb Lyrics

SHARE

I don’t know what you’ve been told
I heard all that glitter’s not gold
We made a plan for the overthrow
Ended up in line for their bow and arrow

We caught the flame but the flame caught on
You outrun me, we get stung
On handheld screens, mouthpiece undone
Got your next trick, on the tip of your thumb

Got your next trick
On the tip of your thumb
Got me,
On the tip of your thumb

We spread the word but the word had changed
Our phrase started to pixelate
And she told the boy, but the boy won’t say
Holding onto his words in a tactile way

We caught the wave but the wave caught on
We’re outnumbered 10 to 1
They waged a war and the war they won
Got your next trick on the tip of your thumb

Got your next trick
On the tip of your thumb
Got me,
On the tip of your thumb

Got your next trick
On the tip of your thumb
Got me,
On the tip of your thumb

We’re a sucker for the white noise and the pull of it
And you love going back to the habit after kicking it, say “we’re working on it”
There’s an art to connection, and we’re chasing it
From our TV set

We caught the flame but the flame caught on
You outrun me, we get stung
On handheld screens, mouthpiece undone
Got your next trick, on the tip of your thumb

Got your next trick
On the tip of your thumb
Got me,
On the tip of your thumb

Got your next trick
On the tip of your thumb
Got me,
On the tip of your thumb

Hey, wait, see
