Dope Machines

You keep me up some nights, trying to figure what you mean.
I don’t know if it’s right. I don’t know what you’re asking.
When you laugh and you say, “I was only joking.”

And it still feels wrong. I’m always asking these questions:
“Are you just playing dumb? Or trying to get a reaction?”
When you laugh and you say, “I was only joking.”

We got our eyes on screens, all of these dope machines.
Isn’t it funny how they feel so much like dreams?
Am I trying too hard, oh I’m not trying at all…

I see it in your eyes, I feel it in my bones,
You coming out tonight? We gonna end up alone?
Just so I could pretend I was only joking.

We got our eyes on screens, all of these dope machines.
Isn’t it funny how they feel so much like dreams?
Am I trying too hard, oh I’m not trying at all…

I’ve got three or four things I’ve always wanted to tell you.
I’ve got two or three secrets I don’t think you could handle.
A little closer to me, I was never joking.
Come a little closer to me, I was never joking.
