The Strokes Lyrics

"Machu Picchu" lyrics


I'm putting your patience to the test.
I'm putting your body on the line, for less.
And didn't you know there was a choice?
It's never yours but someone elses voice.

Sellin' your body to the street.
I'm sending your girlfriends to the night, for cheap.
Wearing a jacket made of meat.
Sending a letter waved with walls so sweet.
And now you've heard that...

Waves turn to grey.
Life in the shade.
A violent cloud.
And that's on USA.
Platinum's on the rise,
Pay phones in the sky.
I'm just trying' to find...
A mountain I can climb.

I'm putting your patience to the test.
I'm putting your body on the line, for less.
And didn't you know there was a choice?
It's never yours in someone elses voice.
And now you've seen that...

Waltz on the grey.
Life in the shade.
A violent cloud,
And that's on USA.
Born on the right.
Circles in disguise.
I'm just tryin' to find...
A mountain I can climb.

Tell us, are you gonna tell us?
Why do we feel so jealous?
Why do we feel so silent?
Why is it always silent?
(I didn't want to ask you baby,
I didn't want you to suffer , and everybody is singing .... )

Why are you waiting? Behind the door...

Life turns to dust,
And when it turns to rust.
Gossip is a truth.
And money paid for the lies we took.
And now that I'm surprised?
Ever since I'm in the skies.
I'm just tryin' to find,
A space for you and I.
