Album: Merriweather Post Pavilion (2009)
  • Am I really all the things that are outside of me?
    Would I complete myself without the things I like around?
    Does the music that I make play on my awkward face?
    Do you appreciate the subtleties of taste buds?

    My friend and me were having laughs
    In a living room filled with arts and crafts
    He said "I like their clothes and their charming ways
    But what I really want is a simple place
    With no fashion clothes 'cause you can't eat those"

    Only Ma'd pretend to like the clothes you showed to me
    Something in my heart can tell me it's a weakness
    And maybe you would have more luck playing those tasty games
    But me, I called and called and never heard from her again

    She's too good to share our favorite things
    I'll keep an open mind if you let me in
    Don't let your temper rise, don't get a bitter face
    Try not to judge me on my kind of taste
    And don't go changing clothes when they don't like yours

    Am I really all the things that are outside of me? Writer/s: BRIAN ROSS WEITZ, NOAH BENJAMIN LENNOX
