Julian Casablancas – Tourist Lyrics 12 years ago
OFFICIAL LYRICS (www.juliancasablancas.com)

I wish that clouds could hold me up like I thought as a child growing up
I wish I could sound as soothing as the rainfall
But I am only a drop from the storm.

I feel like a tourist out in the country
Once this whole world was all countryside
Feel like a tourist in the big city
Soon I will simply evaporate

...They took the strings up north, the drums down south
After they crossed Afghanistan a long time ago
You're shuffling your feet into the next dimension
Soon skyscrapers will be everywhere

I feel like a tourist lost in the suburbs
Soon the whole world will be urban sprawl
Feel like a land lover out on the ocean
Feel like a teardrop streaming off your chin

Some will bet against you, try even to prevent you
But not many can stop you man, if you got a perfect plan
Can they possibly try - I demand to know why they would doubt you?
In this hand, a thousand generations...

Feel like a tourist out in the desert.
So hot it feels like the Devil's breath
Feel like a tourist out in the swampland
This world is just patches of water and land
Everywhere I go I'm a tourist,
But if you stay with me, I'll always be at home

Julian Casablancas – Glass Lyrics 12 years ago
OFFICIAL LYRICS (www.juliancasablancas.com)

I don't believe it, I won't believe it
I'm not sad; I understand that's how it goes
Take it easy, there's no time to be mad
That's their job, blood on their teeth, death on their mind
Pretty baby, please just get out of the way - where it's safe
Eyes will follow you, weapons can't break through
Tears will swallow you, they all can see right through...

Bulletproof glass

You won't have any trouble now
But who knows...

Please don't deceive me, I'm just so easily fooled
But there's some things they do not want the answers to
Don't want to bring all that up, but they keep leaving it out
What to do?
We'll just let it be until they all need...

Bulletproof glass

You won't have any trouble now
But who knows...

If you want to know somebody, might take a quick look at their best friends
Diamonds are hers / a dog is his
You can lie to yourself, but don't lie to me
It's what they want:
Dominance and loyalty / romance and security
Just stay behind...

Bulletproof glass

Julian Casablancas – River of Brakelights Lyrics 12 years ago
OFFICIAL LYRICS (www.juliancasablancas.com)

We might be in for a late night
Stuck in a lava flow of brake lights
I can hear a rattling bass drum driving back to where it came from
Sit back...

I shop therefore I am the cause, protect me from what I was

Getting the hang of it, getting the hang of it, getting the hang of it, getting the hang of it
Getting the hang of it, getting the hang of it, getting the hang of it, getting the hang of it
Timing is everything, timing is everything, timing is everything, timing is everything
Timing is everything, timing is everything...

I'm at your feet, where critters meet
Who should be asleep and not crossing roads or highways
In the afterlife of super cities, rapidly devouring its outskirts
It's neon octopus arms redecorating late at night

Robot camp for kids who hate sports
Mothers crying at the airport
Finding the dreams you left behind to do, waving goodbye your young heart cries for you
Sit back...
You're finding it hard to get very far
But we were born waiting in line
Grabbing the future by the eyes

Getting the hang of it, getting the hang of it - timing is everything, timing is everything
Getting the hang of it - timing is everything - getting the hang of it - timing is everything
TIMING THE HANG OF IT - GETTING IS EVERYTHING -
GETTING THE TIMING OF EVERYTHING HANGING IS
HANGING THE GETTING OF TIMING THE EVERYTHING...

Like batteries we die, like rivers we dry
We fuel and recharge, that's humans and cars
My fun, my sun, be my homework done
Where did you go, you were my ride home

Is that what we want, is everything shot, is that what you ask for, 'cause that's what we got?

Nothing stands still.

Julian Casablancas – Ludlow St. Lyrics 12 years ago
OFFICIAL LYRICS (www.juliancasablancas.com)

Everything seems to go wrong when I stop drinking
Everything seemed to go my way last night
Everything seems so wrong to me this morning.
I know things will be brighter later tonight...

On Ludlow Street, Chinatown's coming
On Ludlow Street, Puerto Ricans are running
On Ludlow Street, soon musicians will haunt it
On Ludlow Street, where Indians once hunted
And it's hard to just move along

While I surrendered my ego you fed yours
All my fantasies died when you said yours
I have dangled my pride to forget yours
Will my mind be at ease when you get yours?
We'll find out soon enough.

It started back in 1624
The Lenape tribes would soon get forced from their home
Soon we'll all get pushed out -- now as soon as I get sober
I remember why I drank it all away ...On Ludlow Street!

Nauseous regrets are calling me on the phone
My shoes they seem to be my only home
The only thing to last will be my bones
Oh, tonight you'll hear the animals next door to you moan

On Ludlow Street, faces are changing
On Ludlow Street,yuppies invading
On Ludlow Street, nightlife is raging
On Ludlow Street, history's fading
And it's hard to just move along...

While I surrendered my ego you fed yours
All my fantasies died when you said yours
I have dangled my pride to forget yours
Will my mind be at ease when you get yours?
We'll find out soon enough...

While they defended their ego you fed yours
All their fantasies died when you said yours
They have dangled their pride to forget yours
Will their souls be at ease when you get yours?
We'll find out soon enough.
I'll find out soon enough.

Julian Casablancas – 4 Chords of the Apocalypse Lyrics 12 years ago
OFFICIAL LYRICS (www.juliancasablancas.com)

I hear it in your silence, when you don't speak
What was funny then, isn't funny anymore
I can hear it in your voice, there's always a catch
We're going nowhere, and we're going there fast

Anything to watch while we are waiting for this Apocalypse.
What more is there to do?
It's nice to be important, but so close to being despised
It's more important to be nice, I guess, than being wise

I'll take your shoppin', I'll takin you dancing too
I'll take you out, all the thing you want to do
I'll give you diamonds, and I'll you space
So be with anyone you want, it's alright with me

Our time is over
Don't you know that if a time-warp was open
I'd stay right in my place
That war is over

I hear it in your silence, when you don't speak
There is a quiet crying rage, burning inside you so deep
I'll give you anything, but I'll give you problems
So be with anyone you want, it's alright with me

I hear it in your voice, can see it in your lips
There's always a catch... I guess that's alright with me
No one's around, but the map says "you are here"
Now I can hear loneliness screaming in my ear

Our time is over
Don't you know that if a time-warp was open
I'd stay right in my place
The war ain't over yet
This war ain't over yet...
Being nice is only hard when others aren't
Our time is over

Julian Casablancas – 11th Dimension Lyrics 12 years ago
OFFICIAL LYRICS (www.juliancasablancas.com)

I'll just nod, I've never been so good at shaking hands
I live on the frozen surface of a fireball.
Where cities come together to hate each other in the name of sport.
America, nothing is ever just anything.
I looked up to you, but you thought I would look the other way

And you hear what you want to hear.
And they take what they want to take...

Don't be sad, won't ever happen like this anymore.
So when's it coming, this last new great movement that I can join?
It won't end here, your faith has got to be greater than your fear

Forgive them, even if they are not sorry.
All the vultures, bootleggers at the door waiting.
You are looking for your own voice but in others.
While it hears you, trapped in another dimension

Drop your guard, you don't have to be smart all of the time.
I've got a mind full on blanks, I need to go somewhere new fast.
...And don't be shy, at least deliberately, 'cause no one really cares or wonders why anymore
Oh, I've got music coming out of my hands and feet and kisses...

This is how it once was done
All the dreamers on the run

Forgive them, even if they are not sorry.
All the vultures, bootleggers at the door waiting.
We're so quick to point out our own flaws in others.
Complicated mammals on the wings of robots

If you believe in this world then no one has died in vain
But don't you dare get to the top and not know what to do

Julian Casablancas – Left Right In The Dark Lyrics 12 years ago
OFFICIAL LYRICS (www.juliancasablancas.com)

I'm running in the parking lot, I'm four years old
I am lost, those were the days.
The soft murmur of voices in the other room
Comforting you as you fall asleep
Staring at the mother-daughter clones go by
We're in a race against time, and time might be winning

...And it's not gonna take all day long
Watchin the urban decay all around us, oh boy
And I'm on my way... oh, somewhere
Feels like I'm going left and right in the dark
How long must we wait, how long must this take
Wake up, wake up...

I'm ashamed I think maybe sometimes I might have used tricks
to make you like me more.
When I found you I was running wild.
"Let's get out of here"
Was in trouble there

I want to know, what are you thinking... 'Cause I think I think it too

Sliding across the Indian wilderness like the wind gliding down soft roads.
6am now you're in Hollywood
You're dancing - we made it.
We are turning with the earth so fast but it feels a lot slower

...And it's not gonna take all day long
Watchin the urban decay all around us, oh boy
And I'm on my way... oh, somewhere
Feels like I'm going left and right in the dark
How long will it take to fix what they break
Wake up, wake up...

Your Achilles heel is you like to feel your fingers on the wheel.

Some live in a palace, some live in the sewer.
The director, the actor, the crew and the viewer
Boys got their toys and girls got their dolls
And nothing much else changes through the final stages.
How you're spending the day is the same as your life.
And you're watching the time running away
Wait up, wait up
Wake up, wake up...
WAKE UP.

I'm so in love with this song at the moment. It's incredibly beautiful. I love the chorus, Julian's voice and the way the song evolves... Pure beauty! And towards the end, when he screams out the lyrics... *sigh* Love him!

Oh, there's a mistake: it should say "It's NICE to be important"

The Killers – Goodnight, Travel Well Lyrics 13 years ago
Wow, this song is the best of Day & Age.

It's amazing how well it describes the loss of someone. Not only the lyrics, just the slowness of the vocals, the drunk instruments, his voice trembling. It's beautiful. I love the lines:
It's quiet now
The universe is standing still
And there's nothing I can say
There's nothing we can do now

Because that's just the way you feel when someone leaves, be it physical (as in death) or someone leaving you behind for a trip or journey. Suddenly everything is quiet! The universe stops! That's just what happens! After a while is when you realize that the world doesn't really stop for your grief, and that you MUST keep going. But before that you really feel as if everything suddenly stopped, and there's nothing you can really do or say...

I love the "Everything you left me rambles in my head"

This song saves Day & Age I must say... It's beautiful.

I love its slowness in the begining, it shows as if he's really trying to figure out things

God, there's always at least ONE line in their songs that blow my mind. This one is it.

I think it's about a guy dumping a girl and then regreting it. He realizes he wants her back, but not as a friend, for they never were real friends.

My fave line would have to be "No one will surprise me unless you do", it's the sweetest sweetest thing. While my favorite verse is definitely: "I can tell there's something goin' on/
hours seems to disappear/everyone is leaving i'm still with you"... Time flies when you're having a nice chat with a surprising person ^^

Brilliant! What else can u say about this song? Eveything about it mind blowing... be it the slow version, the up-beat one, any version is perfect!

I love the one on Philharmonic Hall, the duet with Joan Baez... but I also ADORE the one from 1975, Rolling Thunder Revue. They are all absolutely brillant.

Radiohead – Let Down Lyrics 13 years ago
*ONE DAY I AM GONNA GROW WINGS*

That line defines me so well... And it reminds me to that other line, "one day I'll fly away". which I love as well...

Wanting to grow wings is wanting to fly away, far away from this useless and wrong world. He wants to grow wings so he can get away from all the disappointment.

It's a sad song but also a hopeful one... the way the song evolves gives you that idea. He's sad but hopeful. Lovely song.

I think the lyrics go: "And hours of making love in silence" actually, don't they?

Yes, the way he describes things which are incomplete is outstanding:
Trees without leaves
Notes that don't ring
Wine left to rot
A voice that can't sing

LOVELY! You can totally relate to that.

One of the best tracks on the album!

Well, as the meaning of this song is pretty clear I'm just gonna say that I love it soooo much, everything about it is supreme. I never get tired of saying that Alex's ability to describre situations is OUTSTANDING! And I love him for that.

I also like the fact that the song is written in 3º person, not 1º, which makes it evern more special. I love it when the singer sings in 3º person but YOU KNOW he's singing about himself.

Foo Fighters – Stranger Things Have Happened Lyrics 13 years ago
This is one of the best songs I've ever ever heard. My sister showed it to me a while ago and I was stunned by it.

I think it's about losing someone and NEEDING that person back. Asking "what do you want me to be in order to have you back??" I love how he emphasizes "i'm the same, i'm the same, i'm the same" in such a desperate way. Love it!

It's such a sad song, but I love it with a passion. You can never get tired of it. And I love playing that riff with my guitar :)

And yeah, it's "dear loneliness", not "lonely miss"

I absolutely love the this:
This feeling that I get
This one last cigarette
As I lay awake
And wait for you to come through the door

Arctic Monkeys – D Is for Dangerous Lyrics 13 years ago
My fave line: "He's nearing the brink but he thinks first/The parallel universe perhaps could be the perfect scene"

It sounds like a suicide attempt to me... He's going towards the brink but he doubts... and "the parallel universe" might mean the afterlife, someplace else.

I love that little twist when it goes "The parallel... I THINK YOU SHOULD KNOW YOU'RE HIS FAVOURITE WORST NIGHTMARE"

I looove it, it gets me every time.
