We hide
As sidelocks crawl diseased
Ever shopping, hopping free as
The engines hum
The suns are a breeze
We rise, into skies punctured with stones
She steals us through a dark that's bush
A (?), he's one of ours

As they sleep
Their city's awake and wired
Their city's awake and wired
We're raking inside, aching
The stakes are ready to take me for a ride

Their city's awake and wired
Their city's awake and wired
We're raking inside, aching
The stakes are ready to take me for a ride

Am I (?)
Find it thick enough to drive
Marianne, last touch, 5:45
The highway's already alive
With the khakis teaming with caffeine
To coax the curse across the screen
The nervous tick-tocking machine

As they sleep
Their city's awake and wired
Their city's awake and wired
We're raking inside, aching
The stakes are waiting to take me for a ride

Their city's awake and wired
Their city's awake and wired
We're raking inside, aching
The stakes are waiting to take me for a ride

Uh uh uh uh, all the lights go green
Lord Legless and my sacred rose queen
Uh uh uh uh oh, my Marianne, tell your old man
Uh uh uh uh oh, my Marianne, tell your old man
We're nothing serious

From lower heights to sea cliff estates
Sped past the finest
You gave no chase
We're product haste
(Their city)
Of mission griefs
(Their city)
She'll freeze our tits off
(This city's awake)
Or bake her beats
(Their city's awake, rolled back to pose)
You're a roll of smoke
(You killed the beams)
I nearly spoke
(Marianne)
I'm half his age
(I'm half the man)
Tell your old man
We're nothing serious

Their city's awake and wired
Their city's awake and wired
We're raking inside, aching
The stakes are waiting to take me for a ride

    General CommentNothing, with the INCREDIBLE amount of errors in these posted lyrics! Whoever posted this clearly doesn't know much about The Matches or he/she would know "LORD LEGLESS and my sacred rose queen" from many of Shawn Harris' posts and his artwork of Lord Legless. This is shameful.

    General CommentHere are all the lyrics. They were posted a while ago somewhere on one of The Matches' sites. Hope this helps!
    This is one of my VERY favorite songs, and it pained me. LOL


    We hide
    As sidewalks crawl. diseased,
    Ever shopping, hopping fleas as
    The engines hum
    The sun’s reprise.
    We rise, into skies punctured with stars
    She steers us through her Dogpatch bars
    A barback nods---he’s one of ours

    As they sleep
    Their city's awake and wide
    Their city's awake and wide
    We're aching inside, aching
    Mistakes are waiting to take me for a ride

    Their city's awake and wide
    Their city's awake and wide
    We're aching inside, aching
    Mistakes are waiting to take me for a ride

    My blood, finally thick enough to drive
    Marianne, last touch, 5:45
    The highway's already alive
    With the khakis teaming with caffeine
    To coax the cursor ’cross the screen
    The nervous tick-tocking machine

    Their city's awake and wide
    Their city's awake and wide
    We're aching inside, aching
    Mistakes are waiting to take me for a ride

    Uh uh uh uh, all the lights go green
    For me, Lord Legless, and my sacred rose queen
    Uh uh uh uh oh, my Marianne, tell your old man
    Uh uh uh uh oh, my Marianne, tell your old man
    We're nothing serious

    From Lower Haight to sea cliff estates
    Sped past the finest
    You gave no chase
    We‘re proud to feast
    (Their city)
    On Mission grease,
    (Their city)
    We’ll freeze our tits off
    (This city's awake)
    On Baker Beach
    (Their city's awake)
    rolled back to park
    You rolled a smoke
    (You killed the beams)
    I nearly spoke
    (Marianne)
    I'm half his age
    (I'm half the man)
    Tell your old man
    We're nothing serious

    Their city's awake and wide
    Their city's awake and wide
    We're aching inside, aching
    Mistakes are waiting to take me for a ride

    General Commenti agree with biffy_hayley. i dont think this is one of their best songs. i love when they say "aching," though. and the guitar is really good in this song...as usual. love the guitar solo at the end.
