That’s how it starts We go back to your house We check the charts And start to figure it out
And if it’s crowded, all the better Because we know we’re gonna be up late But if you’re worried about the weather Then you picked the wrong place to stay That’s how it starts
And so it starts You switch the engine on We set controls for the heart of the sun One of the ways we show our age
And if the sun comes up, if the sun comes up, if the sun comes up And I still don’t wanna stagger home Then it’s the memory of our betters That are keeping us on our feet
You spent the first five years trying to get with the plan And the next five years trying to be with your friends again
You’re talking 45 turns just as fast as you can Teah, I know it gets tired, but it’s better when we pretend
It comes apart The way it does in bad films Except in parts When the moral kicks in
Though when we’re running out of the drugs And the conversation’s winding away I wouldn’t trade one stupid decision For another five years of life
You drop the first ten years just as fast as you can And the next ten people who are trying to be polite When you’re blowing eighty-five days in the middle of France Yeah, I know it gets tired only where are your friends tonight?
And to tell the truth Oh, this could be the last time So here we go Like a sales force into the night
And if I made a fool, if I made a fool, if I made a fool On the road, there’s always this And if I’m sewn into submission I can still come home to this
And with a face like a dad and a laughable stand You can sleep on the plane or review what you said When you’re drunk and the kids leave impossible tasks You think over and over, “hey, I’m finally dead.”
Oh, if the trip and the plan come apart in your hand Tou look contorted on yourself your ridiculous prop You forgot what you meant when you read what you said And you always knew you were tired, but then Where are your friends tonight?
Where are your friends tonight? Where are your friends tonight?
If I could see all my friends tonight If I could see all my friends tonight If I could see all my friends tonight If I could see all my friends tonight
stacey and coleman recommended i check the tUnE-yArDs out, they just found them recently, then stacey tagged me in a post with this video because of our love for facepaint. just downloaded their albums and so far i’m digging it, i’ve only gotten to listen to a few songs.. and this video is pretty damn cool.
such an epic video. the newest one directed by spike jonez didn’t impress me as much and i felt like watching this again. maybe i’ll have to give the new one another chance? i dunno, don’t really care for the action figure crap
