"Movement" as written by and James Jeremiah Murphy....
It's like a movement from the small place
To a bigger city
Or it's a bigger bag to strap the ego of a little baby
It's like a discipline without the discipline of
All of the discipline
It's like a culture
Without the effort of all the culture

Oh but I'm tapped
You're pillaging and I'm tapped
You're yesterday
And I'm tapped
Another reason I'm tapped

It's like a movement
Without the bother of the meaning
It's like a discipline
Without the discipline of all of the discipline
It's like a fat guy in a T-shirt
Doing all the saying
It's like a couple dads and a few friends
Trying hard to stay in

You're history and I'm tapped
You're fast and easy 'n I'm tapped
You're pillaging
And I'm tapped
For best results well I'm tapped

Here comes the report nothing to report see
It's all the same
It seems the punk rock as an experiment well
It pulled up lame
You got the fat guy in the T-Shirt
Doing all the singing
Straight to the drunk tank doing the research 'n
Doing all the blame

You're history and I'm tapped
You're fast asleep and I'm tapped
You're pillaging and I'm tapped
For best results well I'm tapped

It's like the culture
Without the effort or all of the luggage
It's like a discipline
Without the discipline of all of the discipline
It's like a movement
Without the bother of the meaning
It's like a culture
Without the culture of all of the culture

You're history and I'm tapped
You're fast'n'easy
And I'm tapped
You're pillaging and I'm tapped
And you're finicky so I'm tapped

    General CommentI like LCD Soundsystem and all, James Murphy's a pretty cool guy - and he has a great record collection. But this is a Fall song, and he knows it. It's okay though, I won't tell.

    General CommentHe measns the Fall - the post-punk band featuring Mark E SMITH - who are awesome and are among my favorite bands - this sounds like their style but its not a Fall cover (if thats what he means)

    General CommentYeah, this kind of has the beat from "Ghost Rider" by Suicide: youtube.com/…

    Both the phrase "I'm tapped" and the pronunciation (tapp-uhd) is from the song "Telephone Thing" by the Fall: youtube.com/…

    I like the way that James Murphy injects his personality into older songs, but this is the one time where I don't think it works too well.
