  • I want an interesting synonym
    To describe this thing
    That you say we're all grandfathered in
    I'll use the search engine (we've got much to discuss)
    Too much to discuss
    Over a bucket of balls
    I can recall the glow of your low beams
    It's the big night in Tinsel City
    Life became a spectator sport
    I launch my fragrance called "Integrity"
    I sell the fact that I can't be bought
    Have I told you all about the time
    That I got sucked into a hole through a hand held device?
    I will flashback now and again but I'm usually alright
    Thankfully the process has been simplified
    Since the last time you tried

    I've recognized the glow of your low beams numerous times
    I'll be by the Batphone if you need to get a hold
    Making a selection
    Opening credits roll
    Panoramic windows looking out across your soul

    You go in through the door
    Vengeance trilogy wallpaper walls
    They have re-decorated it all
    They've changed all the lights and the bar's down the side

    I've recognized the glow of your low beams numerous times
    Through fairly opaque blinds in the sitting room
    Vehicles will pass by but I know when it's you
    I'll be in a nose dive in my flying shoes
    Right behind your closed eyes like a memory from your youth
    I'll be by the Batphone if you need to get a hold
    Making a selection
    Opening credits roll
    Killer pink flamingos
    Computer controlled
    Panoramic windows looking out across your soul Writer/s: Alex Turner
