The Dodos Lyrics

"Fiends" lyrics


I open the news
It's time that we choose
Play a simpler view
This place is pale and it's blue

I tear my eyes loose
From this sleep breaking news
Guess I'm paying my dues
It's just a valid excuse

How our ideas of hell
Just thinking we weren't jealous
Now we're nothing but zealous
To what our bodies now tell us

It's too close I guess
Though we survived this test
It's not on my chest
Never got put to rest

I'm not the one who does the things I know
I preach a lot before I have a go
I know I hurt you as my friend and foe
But I still love you more than you could know

Stuck in my head
My ego is fed
Feels like I'm ahead
Inside I'm just dead

Betrayal at best
I've created this mess
It's about time I confess
But people know more or less

Cause time after time
I leave whatever I find
Stop to apologize
But that's the way of my kind

You're getting so near
That's just what I had feared
It's getting so clear
I'm fully endeared

I'm not the one who does the things I know
I preach a lot before I have a go
I know I hurt you as my friend and foe
But I still love you more than you could know

Guess I'm not
Where I
Want to believe
I am

Guess I'm not
Where I
Want to believe
I am

Guess I'm not
Where I
Want to believe
I am

Guess I'm not
Where I
Want to believe

Raised up in the sky
We breathe it all away
It's up to us as we hide
Well, we were here to stay

I know it seemed right
To choose and take a part
In a world we can buy
Watch us blow ourselves apart

I know it's too late
To choose another wrong
I won't go anywhere
I'll be here when you're gone
