Neon Tiger

Album: Day & Age (2008)
  • Far from the evergreen of old Assam
    Far from the rainfall on the trails of old Saigon
    straight from the poster town of scorn and ritz
    To bring you the wilder side of gold and glitz

    But neon tiger there's a lot on your mind
    They promised just to pet you, but don't you let them get you
    Away, away, away
    Under the heat of the southwest sun

    Took to the spotlight like a diamond ring
    Came from the woodwork and the hopes they might
    Redeem themselves from poor decisions to win big

    But neon tiger there's a lot on your mind
    Strategize to maim you, but don't you let them tame you
    You're far too pure and bold
    To suffer the strain of the pain that's old.

    I don't wanna be kept, I don't wanna be caged, I don't wanna be damned oh hell
    I don't wanna be broke, I don't wanna be saved, I don't wanna be S.O.L.
    Give me rolling hills so tonight can be the night that I send them up a thousand thrills
    Can you cut me some slack, Cause I don't wanna go back, I want the new day and age

    Come on girls and boys, everyone make some noise!

    Run neon tiger there's a price on your head
    They'll put you down and cut you, I'll never let them touch you
    Away, away, away
    Oh I'm gonna need a neon tiger roar

    Under the heat of
    Under the heat of
    Under the heat of the southwest sun

    Neon tiger
    There's a lot on your mindWriter/s: BRANDON FLOWERS, DAVE BRENT KEUNING, MARK AUGUST STOERMER, RONNIE JR. VANNUCCI
