  • You found a sweater on the ocean floor
    They're gonna find it if you didn't close the door
    You and the smart ones sit outside of their sight
    In a house on a street they wouldn't park on at night
    Dad was a risk-taker, his was a shoe maker
    You, "Greatest Hits 2006" little list-maker
    Heard codes in the melodies, you heeded the call
    Oh, you were born with ten fingers and you're gonna use them all

    Interesting colors I discovered myself
    If your art life is gritty, you'll be toasting my health
    If an interest in culture should be lining the walls
    When your birthright is interest, you could just accrue it all

    Me and my cousins and you and your cousins
    It's a line that's always running
    Me and my cousins and you and your cousins
    I can feel it coming

    You could turn your back on the bitter world
    You could turn your back on the bitter world
    You could turn your back on the bitter world
    You could turn your back on the bitter world

    Me and my cousins and you and your cousins
    It's a line that's always running
    Me and my cousins and you and your cousins
    I can feel it coming
    Me and my cousins and you and your cousins
    It's a line that's always running
    Me and my cousins and you and your cousins
    I can feel it coming Writer/s: Christopher Joseph Baio, Christopher William Tomson, Ezra Koenig, Rostam Batmanglij
