Obvious Bicycle

Album: Modern Vampires of the City (2013)
  • Morning's come you watch the red sun rise
    The LED still flickers in your eyes
    Oh, you oughta spare your face the razor
    Because no one's gonna spare the time for you
    No one's gonna watch you as you go
    From a house you didn't build and can't control
    Oh, you oughta spare your face the razor
    Because no one's gonna spare the time for you
    You ought to spare the world your labor
    It's been twenty years and no one's told the truth

    So listen, oh
    So listen, oh
    Don't wait
    Don't wait

    So listen, oh
    So listen, oh
    Don't wait
    Don't wait

    So keep that list of who to thank in mind
    And don't forget the rich ones who were kind
    Oh, you oughta spare your face the razor
    Because no one's gonna spare the time for you
    Why don't you spare the world a traitor
    Take your wager back and leave before you lose

    So listen, oh
    So listen, oh
    Don't wait
    Don't wait

    So while the sun's coming down
    Cover ground, cover ground
    And if you find some love for these clowns
    Turn around, turn around
    I'll be half asleep on the floor of our high school gym
    Thinking of you and wondering if anyone else could begin

    To listen
    Listen
    Don't wait
    Don't wait

    So listen, oh
    So listen, oh
    Don't wait
    Don't wait Writer/s: Rostam Batmanglij, Ezra Koenig
