"Let's Talk Turkey" as written by Joey Waronker, Oliver Goldstein, Justin Meldal-johnsen, Tim Anderson and Alex Ebert....
Life e
A reaction to emptiness
Time
Continues for the Boogyman
Just give me one
Chance
To feature you in sunshine
And we could both
Dance
The aphids swarm away

Hello, hello
Losing concentration
Losing motivation
Losing ground

Solo solo
Don't like moderation
Starved for conversation
Are you down

Love
A reaction to some soft skin
What about
Trust
I've seen it here and there
And give me some
Girls
Be careful what you wish for
So take me
Out
Woo honey let's go dancing

Hello, hello
Losing concentration
Losing motivation
Losing ground

Solo, solo
Don't like moderation
Starved for conversation
Are you down

Don't stop wasting people's time
One day soon you're gonna shine

Hello, hello
Losing concentration
Losing motivation
Losing ground

Solo, solo
Don't like moderation
Starved for conversation
Are you down

Hello, hello
Losing concentration
Losing motivation
Losing ground

Solo, solo
Don't like moderation
Starved for conversation
Are you down

Are you down

Don't stop wasting people's time

    General CommentIma Robot is....unique. This song is sooo great, and one of their few "love" songs....unless you also count Dirty Life. I'm really surprised there aren't more comments on their lyric pages.

    General CommentOkay here's the deal: this song is about having feelings for a person and wanting them to just give you the chance to let you show them how you feel and how important they are to you. It seems like he's kind of giving up hope with the "losing concentration, losing motivation" bit, but maybe the sudden "are you down?" is like a one-more-try kind of thing. I guess that's about it, because I'm not too sure what the significance of the "don't stop wasting people's time" part is. It sounds good though and this is a great song. I was driving today and it gave me goosebumps, which I'd say is a good thing.

    General CommentUsually, the meanings of their songs are pretty obvious. As with this one. One of the few wonderful dancedancedance songs that actually has a good meaning :)

    General Commenti think don't stop wasting people's time is just that he feels like he's wasting time and it gets frustrating but he doesn't want to give up and still wants this person to affect his life, so he'd rather waste time on them then have nothing.

    General Commentand also, this girl sounds like she's having problems and probably feels like leaving or that she wastes peoples time. but he's telling her to stay.

    General CommentOne correction its not
    "I’ve seen it here and there
    And give me some
    Girls"
    Its
    "Ive seen it here and there
    Just give me some
    Girls"
    and yeah tiger he doesn't want her to stop wasting his time becase yeah as much as he hates it, he loves it because its the only she can still affect his life. Because he feels like it will pay off hence "One day soon you’re gonna shine "
