FOALS The Forked Road

Lyrics from rodjtulang FOALS The Forked Road Lyrics, singer by FOALS

You can go
Out on your own
But they can take
That forked road

Oh, I’ll fill their shoes
I tried out all their moods
God, I’m trapped
I’m on the moon

(I’m on my own)

I’m the master pretender
I’m wearing his face
I’m wearing his ring
All hail the king

You don’t know
What I’m yet to be
Oh, you’ll see

Paving is laid
On that forked road

I’ll take your coat
Then I’ll take your king

FOALS Albatross

Lyrics from rodjtulang FOALS Albatross Lyrics, singer by FOALS

You got an albatross around your neck, around your neck
You got a hundred broken lightbulbs above your head
They said that you had it coming but I wouldn’t bet
‘Cause you got a slowly ticking time bomb,
And then you see red.

Sunblind, sunblind

You got an albatross around your neck, around your neck
You got a pile of broken wishbones under your bed
And you got a hungry green-eyed monster that you keep fed
And it keeps on coming over, it wants you dead

Sunblind, sunblind

Oh, you burnt the lungs that your ancestors created
You sat by the banks of the river and you waited
Till time rolled back and the water had abated
You drank, you share but you still could not be sated
Quicksands of the mind and the sinkholes you may find
When you look through the twisting of the vines,
The twisting of the vines.

Time comes round again, it’s etching at your bones
Chill wind comes round, it’s blowing through your home
Quicksands of the mind and the sinkholes you may find
When you look through the twisting of the vines.

You burnt the lungs that your ancestors created
You sat by the banks of the river and you waited
Till time rolled back and the water had abated
You drank, you share but you still could not be sated
You said you’re scared of the clocks that keep ticking over
I’ll find a way through a life that we’re living over
Again and again through a life that we’re living over, again and again

A life that we’re living over,
Again and again, again and again and again
Again and again, again and again and again

FOALS Wear And Tear

Lyrics from rodjtulang FOALS Wear And Tear Lyrics, singer by FOALS

Helium heart, you’re blown apart, you’ll never find your shadow
Helium heart, your hands apart, you’ll never trap your shadow
In the dark heal your heart, you’re blown apart ravaged by the callow
From the start helium heart your hands apart, you’ll never catch your shadow

So keep it up from the start in your hands apart
Flit splits such as from the star
You turn support, yeah, no call, no call me
Your hands in your, hands in your, hands apart
After dark, from the start, blown apart

Helium heart, you’re blown apart, you’ll never find your shadow
At the start helium heart, your hands apart, you’ll never trap your shadow
In the dark heal your heart, you’re blown apart, you’re ravaged by the callow

Helium heat, you’re blown apart, you’ll never find your shadow

FOALS Snake Oil

Lyrics from rodjtulang FOALS Snake Oil Lyrics, singer by FOALS

Oh, yeah, oh, yeah
Yay, you keep it slow, yay-yay, you keep it low

Well, you sell snake oil to the butcher
The butcher’s bill must always be paid
It’s a wild wait to wait and it leads to no surprises
No surprise, no-one gets laid
You put the snake oil under my tongue
Show me the door, the way to be free
Cause you know the moves that only you do
Makes fools of a boy like me, ooooh, ooooh, yay, uh
You sell snake oil to the sinners
When all they crave is to be free
It’s a wild tease, tease me with nothing better
Nothing better, slower than me
You cast a spell that keeps me wired
Keeps me red, keeps me on fire
So why do you take me down, down to nothing
Always out cold, never been higher, ooooh, ooooh

In the day uou leave me to want what I crave
No surprise to want what I can’t find
You said it again, again, again
Come on, you said, you said it again

Driving through the old county line
Where I go to find what is mine
Driving past the old county line
Where I go to find what is mine, ooooh, ooooh
You said it again, you give it away

In the day uou leave me to want what I crave
No surprise to want what I can’t find

FOALS Inhaler

Lyrics from rodjtulang FOALS Inhaler Lyrics, singer by FOALS

Sticks and stones don?t break my bones, you make believe
It?s lock and load, it?s a dead end road to you and me
You know what?s to go, I?m strict for soul, I make believe
And I?m off the rent, I haven?t spent, I guarantee

So can you not go away
If just for one day
Uh-uh-uh
Impossible, possible way
How would you do know
How?d you do now?
Run away
War sounds in you
Don?t throw your fortune away
And I can?t get enough
Space, space, space
Get enough space

I?m pale and coy, a mama?s boy, I make believe
I shimmy-shake, I wake and bake, I?m over me
My lungs are beat, I can not breathe, don?t follow me
You push and shove, I?ve had enough, don?t mess with me

So can you not go away
If just for one day
Uh-uh-uh
Impossible, ?ossible way
How would you do know
How?d you do now?
Run away
War sounds in you
Don?t throw your fortune away
And I can?t get enough
Space,
I can?t Get enough space
Space

FOALS Night Swimmer

Lyrics from rodjtulang FOALS Night Swimmer Lyrics, singer by FOALS

Another hot summer?s day and only we know the way
To the cool blue lagoon where we sleep until noon
The city is all ablaze with blue notes and haze
The cities open wide roads, snuck the moon in clothes

Get up again, get up again, get up again

We swim under the moon in the cool blue lagoon
You count up all my scars and crumble it into the stars
You used to have perfect plans, you and your dirty white dress
And the day I came to

Get up again, get up again, get up again, get up again

A perfect blue evening, we sit and drink and we sing
Smoke flowers rising high into the flaming sky

FOALS My Number

Lyrics from rodjtulang FOALS My Number Lyrics, singer by FOALS

You don?t have my number, we don?t need each other now
We don?t need the city, the creed or the culture now

‘Cause I feel, I feel alive, I feel, I feel alive
I feel the streets are all pulling me down

So people of the city I don?t need your counsel now
And I don?t need your good advice, you don?t have my lover?s touch

You don?t have my number, we don?t need each other now
The creed or the culture, we can move beyond it now

Now the wolf is knocking at my door, bang-banging, ask for more
Stand here, we stand tall, we could move beyond these walls

I don?t need your counsel, I don’t need these city streets
I don?t need that good advice ’cause we can move beyond it now

You don?t have my number, we don?t need each other now
The creed or the culture, you don?t have my lover?s touch

‘Cause I feel, I feel alive, I feel, I feel alive
I feel the streets are all far from there

Do you even hear me? Do you even know my name?
Can you see the ocean now? You don?t have my lover?s touch
You don?t have my number, you don?t have my number
People, can you hear me? Are you even listening now?

‘Cause you don?t have my number, we don?t need each other now
You can’t steal my thunder ’cause you don?t have my lover?s touch
You don?t have my number and I don?t need no one else
And I don?t need these city streets, the creed or the culture now
