Mind Over Matter

Album: Mind Over Matter (2014)
  • Mind over matter
    Does it matter to any of us?
    Don't change the subject
    I'm heavy on your love
    I missed that train, New York city - it rains!
    Fly to east L.A. in big jet planes
    You know you're on my mind

    And if the world don't break
    I'll be shakin' it
    'Cause I'm a young man after all
    And when the seasons change
    Will you stand by me?
    'Cause I'm a young man built to fall

    Mind over matter,
    I'm in tatters thinkin' about her
    Taste my disaster
    It's heavy on my tongue
    All the lights aglow
    Tokyo - snows
    Go to watch the show
    Curtain's closed!
    I'm watching you this time

    And if the world don't break
    I'll be shakin' it
    'Cause I'm a young man after all
    And when the seasons change
    Will you stand by me?
    'Cause I'm a young man built to fall
    I missed that train
    New York city - it rains!
    Fly to east L.A. in big jet planes
    You know you're on my mind
    All the lights aglow
    Tokyo, sno-ooows
    Go to watch the show, curtain's closed
    I'm watching you this time

    Mind over matter
    Mind over matter
    You know you're on my mind!

    And if the world don't break
    I'll be shakin' it
    'Cause I'm a young man after all
    And when the seasons change
    Will you stand by me!
    (Fly to east L.A.)
    'Cause I'm a young man built to fall
    And if the world don't break!
    And when the seasons change, will you stand by me?

  • Ali from TexasAbsolutely the best song Young the Giant has made. It's one of those songs you never get tired of hearing, no matter how many times you've heard it. The power and passion behind Sameer's vocals give me goosebumps every time. Especially at the break (around the 2:50 mark in the video). It's absolutely outstanding.
