Lyrics

[Verse 1: 2-D & Thundercat]

On Cracker Island it was born
To the collective of the dawn
They were planting seeds at night
To grow a made-up paradise
Where truth was auto-tuned (Forever Cult)
But it's sadness I consume (Forever Cult)
Into my format everyday (Forever Cult)
In the end I need to pay (What world is this)
In the end I have to pay (I purged my soul)
In the end I have to pay (I drank tonight)
I've got nothing more to say (I drank tonight)

[Chorus 1: 2-D & Thundercat]

They taught themselves to be occult
They didn't know its many strategies
They taught themselves to be occult
They didn't know its many strategies (Fantasies)
What world is this?
What world is this?

[Verse 2: 2-D & Thundercat]
On Cracker Island it was raised (Hey, hey, hey, hey)
By the collective from the grave (Hey, hey, hey, hey)
It only came out at night (Hey, hey, hey, hey)
It ate up their paradise (Paradise)
Where truth was auto-tune (Forever Cult)
And it's sadness I consume (Forever Cult)
And I heard it everyday (Forever Cult)
In the end I had to pay (What world is this)
Out there on the silver lake (I was not there)
Everything it will be great (Beneath the hills)
I'm like a ship between the tide (I saw myself)
I held on to my surprise (We feel the void)

[Chorus 2: 2-D]

They thought themselves to be a cult
They didn't know it's many strategies
They taught themselves to be a cult
They didn't know it's many strategies
Tragedies

[Verse 3: 2-D & Thundercat]

On Cracker Island it will die (Forever Cult)
Join the collective from the sky (Forever Cult)
And on the shining bolt of light (Forever Cult)
Go out to paradise (What world is this)
Where the truth is auto-tuned (I purged my soul)
And it's sadness I consumed (I drank tonight)
Into my format everyday (I drank tonight)
In the end, I had to pay (Forever Cult)
In the end, I had to pay (Forever Cult)
In the end, it will be great (Forever Cult)
Nothing more to say
Nothing more to say, now
Nothing more to say
There's nothing more to say
