    Simmer (lyrics)
    Rage is a quiet thing
    You think that you’ve tamed it
    But it’s just lying in wait
    Is it in our veins?
    Feel it in my face when I least expect it

    Give in

    There’s so many ways to give in
    Eyes close
    Another way to make it to 10
    Oh how to draw the line between wrath and mercy?
    Simmer simmer simmer simmer simmer down

    There’s so many ways to give in
    Eyes close
    Another way to make it to 10
    Oh how to draw the line between wrath and mercy?
    Simmer simmer simmer simmer simmer down

    If I had seen my reflection
    As something more precious
    He would’ve never
    Mmm and if my child needed protection
    From a fucker like that man
    I’d sooner gut him
    Cause nothing cuts like a mother

    Give in

    There’s so many ways to give in
    Eyes close
    Another way to make it to 10
    Oh how to draw the line between wrath and mercy?
    Simmer simmer simmer simmer simmer down

    There’s so many ways to give in
    Eyes close
    Another way to make it to 10
    Oh how to draw the line between wrath and mercy?
    Simmer simmer simmer simmer simmer down

    Wrap yourself in petals
    Wrap yourself in petals
    Wrap yourself in petals for armor
    Petals for armor

    Give In

    There’s so many ways to give in
    Eyes close
    Another way to make it to 10
    Oh how to draw the line between wrath and mercy?
    Simmer simmer simmer simmer simmer down

    I'm coming to terms with my anger issues (including admitting to myself that I have them) so I'm really connecting to this song at the moment. Thank you Hayley for giving us this powerful, resonant, beautiful song. It's really helping me a lot.

    I didnt even know this was out. What a treat after being laid off this week. At least I get to listen to you sing new music. I’m so fucking happy about that. This song is a new anthem. Your lyrics are everything I want to express right now. I love this music video out of all of them.
    Thank you, just thank you for creating this. If not for yourself, for your fans 💟🙏🏼
    Simmer needs a metal version 😉🤘🏼

    you guys are so good I'm glad you still keep in touch with one another I would say my favorite thing about paramore is that when you guys sing you can see the dream that started on a whim the following of your dreams and especially the progression in your music and in the people around including your selves so dont stop you keep it up and I feel your going to become big you all have talent so keep using it oh and one last thing your band has good chemistry please stay together if possible and if you fall on hard times then look up because there is only one place to go after hitting rock bottom and that's up hope you all have a wonderful day and that this inspired you

    I definitely Respect this and the creative writing but this song seems so left field.........seems like a Bille eilish song. I've listened to the new material and it seems like healing and expression. I don't hate the song, just not what I expected. Glad she's doing better tho! 🙌🙌🙌

    "Wrap yourself in petals" best way I understand these lyrics is the Christian notion of "when I am weak then I am strong" Kind of counterintuitive when being soft and tender is more strong and protective than heavy plates of armor
