Turtleneck

Album: Sleep Well Beast (2017)
  • Hope my mother mentioned dad will dance with me
    I'd like to spin a while around the copperwood tree
    There's something about her eyes, I think her roots are rotten
    This must be the reason she wears her hair up in knots

    Oh no, this is so embarrassing
    Oh, the pissing fits
    Crying on their doorsteps and teachers losing grip
    Some of them so out of style, I cannot save them
    There's I'll just get whatever my salvation gave them

    Keep the weed next to the bed
    And light the wall, check for lead
    Dim the lights a little lower
    Hide your back or shrug your shoulders
    Give the gift, then fix your hair
    You have to get this turtleneck

    The poor, they leave their cellphones in the bathrooms of the rich
    And when they try to turn them off everything they switch to
    Is just another man, in shitty suits, everybody's cheering for
    This must be the genius we've been waiting years for

    Oh no, this is so embarrassing
    Oh, the pissing fits
    Crying on their doorsteps and teachers losing grip
    Some of them so out of style, I cannot save them
    There's I'll just get whatever my salvation gave them

    Keep the weed next to the bed
    And light the wall, check for lead
    Dim the lights a little lower
    Hide your back or shrug your shoulders
    Give the gift, then fix your hair
    You have to get this turtleneck

    Keep the weed next to the bed
    And light the wall, check for lead
    Dim the lights a little lower
    Hide your back or shrug your shoulders
    Give the gift, then fix your hair
    You have to get this turtleneck Writer/s: Aaron Dessner, Matthew Berninger
