Holiday

  • Holiday, oh, a holiday
    And the best one of the year
    Dozing off underneath my sheets
    While I cover both my ears

    But if I wait for a holiday
    Could it stop my fears?
    To go away on a summer's day
    Never seemed so clear

    Holiday, still so far away
    A republic on the beach
    I can't forget just how bad it gets
    When I'm counting on my teeth

    But if I wait for a holiday
    Could it stop my fears?
    To go away on a summer's day
    Never seemed so clear

    A vegetarian since the invasion
    She'd never seen the word 'bombs'
    She'd never seen the word 'bombs'
    Blown up to 96-point Futura
    She'd never seen an AK
    In a yellowy Day-Glo display
    A T-shirt so lovely, it turned all the history books grey

    I got wheels, I got Cutter spray
    And a healthy sense of worth
    Half of me is the gasoline
    But the other half's the surf

    So if I wait for a holiday
    Could it stop my fears?
    To go away on a summer's day
    Never seemed so clear Writer/s: Christopher Joseph Baio, Christopher William Tomson, Ezra Koenig, Rostam Batmanglij
