  • Dancing in my underpants
    I'm gonna run for government
    I'm gonna form a covers band and all
    And back there by the baby grand
    Did Mr. Winter Wonderland say
    "Come here, kid, we really need to talk"?
    Bear with me, man, I lost my train of thought

    I fantasize, I call it quits
    I swim with the economists
    And I get to the bottom of it for good
    By the time reality hits
    The chimes of freedom fell to bits
    The shining city on the fritz
    They come out of the cracks
    Thirsty for blood

    Just as the apocalypse finally gets prioritized
    And you cried some of the hottest tears you ever cried
    Multiplied by five
    I suppose the singer must die

    Singsong 'round the money tree
    This stunning documentary
    That no one else unfortunately saw
    Such beautiful photography
    It's worth it for the opening scene
    I've been driving 'round listening to the score
    Or maybe, I just imagined it all
    I've played to quiet rooms like this before
    Bear with me, man, I lost my train of thought Writer/s: Alex Turner
