The lyrics to Whoops are as follows:

No no no no no no no. Yeah, so anyway,
what was I saying?
Fuck it mate. Hold on. I’m coming up,

wait/
Good night,
weren’t it?
Must have been

Burnt too
much on the
good stuff,
lucky me.

I looked up,
saw my future
unravel in the lights,
Funny innit?

I’ll have that sinking feeling any minute.
But you cant win a race
less you’re running in it?
Right?

cant get a taste less you’ve taken a bite.

Man
I’m
climbing
up
the
walls,

Things are getting difficult,

it’s all

take take take

I start early,
work late.

Putting in the hours
for these drugs tokens.

Love’s a joke
till your bloods pulsing

Love is real
when you start choking

I’m double dropping
in the vast ocean

State of me, mate.
Blatantly the way I was made.

Man, I been getting on it
since back in the day.

Good place for a bad time
if you ask me,
Trust me, nothing gets past me.
Bad place for a good time,
know what I mean?
I never met no one like you,

It feels like a dream.

Woops.
Back here again.
How many times have I sworn it’s the end?

Woops.
I know this feeling.
Shovelling the rubbish till I’m staring at the ceiling.

Woops.
Dancing to a shit tune.
Hands in the air when it hits you.

Woops.
I’m lying in my bed
And my brain is eating my head.

I got these demons that I cant shake,
My past is a vast place
cant get away.
Life got grim back then,
Like it does,
You know how it feels
to lose people you love?

I like talking to you like this!
you wanna come back?
Couple drinks,
something like that?

I got a gram on my nightstand,
I got an eighth of squidgy black.
I got this feeling that we’re gonna be
friends.

I got this song
I wanna play it to you.
I got this dream
I’m gonna make it happen.
I got this thing,
I wanna say it to you.

I been writing poems,
it’s a thing that I do,
would you mind if I
shared one with
you?

No. course not.

Right.

Sorry.

This time of night,
I always end up spouting
the same old shite.

Reminds me of this time I was trying to find my mind in the back of
this rave. This kid was spilling blood all over the place. And I was looking out for someone to save or be saved by and I found this paper plate. I started writing,
Man, it felt fucking great.

I knew then,
me and the pen,
We were one and the same.

But I cant take the strain of the days
I’m pretty sure I’m halfway
to insane

You’ve got such a nice face
And your eyes are like
rain
I’d try and kiss you
if I could just remember your
name.

Woops.
Back here then s’pose,
Don’t watch the state of my nose.

Woops.
My jaws gone west.
I’ve started getting pains in my chest
Is that normal?

Woops.
There goes my promise.
All it took was two drinks
till I got on it.

Woops.
I swear this person isn’t me.
We did have fun though,
didn’t we?

Didn’t we?
