Slow Show

Slow Show

The National

Standing at the punch table, swallowing punch,
Can't pay attention to the sound of anyone,
A little more scared, a little more stupid, every minute more unprepared,
Made a mistake in my life today,
Everything I love gets lost in drawers,
I wanna start over, I wanna be winning, way out of sync from the beginning.

It's easier than this, it's easier than this,
Everything you say has water under it,
Somebody bring me the head of a love song
Somebody bring me the head of a lie,
Wanna be a blank slate, wanna wear a white cape,
Wanna tackle young girls off their beautiful boyfriends.

Looking for somewhere to stand and stare,
I leaned on the wall and the wall leaned away,
Can I get a minute of not being nervous and not thinking of my dick?
My leg turns to sparkles, my leg turns to pins,
I better get my shit together, I better gather my shit in,
You can drive a car through my head in five minutes from one side of it to the other.

So c'mon now, don't make me cry,
Everything you say has water under it,
It's easier than this, it's easier than this,
Everything you say has water under it,
Wanna bring me the head of a love song
Wanna bring me the head of a love song
Wanna be a blank slate, wanna wear a white cape,
Wanna tackle young girls off their beautiful boyfriends.
No I couldn't get ahead in a love song?
Gonna be a blank slate, gonna wear a white cape,
Don't over-do it.

What do I do now?
Don't over-do it.

What do I do now?
Don't over-do it.

What do I do now?
Don't over-do it.

What do I do now?
Don't over-do it.
