About "Radlands" album:
This page contains lyrics from the album
"Radlands" by Mystery Jets, which was released in 2012 and consists of 5 songs.
You can take 'The Lexicon of Love' away but I'm keeping Remain in Light'
You can take away 'It's a Shame About Ray' but I'm holding on to 'Country
You can keep 'No Need to Argue' and I'll keep 'The Aeroplane Over the Sea'
But hold on to 'The Boy with the Arab Strap' cos I'm holding on to 'Village
I don't know if the knot just needs untangling cos the tapes get stuck all
Either way I'm keeping 'Double Nickles on the Dime'
Lost In Austin
Is there world more lonely than ours
Out there beyond the stars
Is there another me
Looking back across the sea
I wonder if he knows
I wonder if he cares
I wonder if he ever wonders
I wonder if he asks
I've heard there's a place where we go to die
It's a terribly overrated horse-shit shaped hole in the sky
Kick off your heels and come with me tonight
And we'll pack up your car and we'll board up the house
And we'll die for our country though it never loved us
And it didn't need us these wonderful wonderful people
We'll redefine love in these papers and cry
So may the bridges we burn light the way
Out of the darkness of where we have been
I was gripped with a bitter fear,
Worried the one thing that I loved,
Back when I was just a kid,
Might now never be enough,
That the body I was in,
Might belong to someone else, someone kinder, someone surer, someone
Young and beautiful, someone purer.
I was scratching at my skin,
You Had Me At Hello
I went to the desert,
Because I wanted to find my pistol.
I wanted to see what it would feel like to be invincible.
But a man I met said, boy you ain't seen nothing yet.
Let me take you for a ride.
So I got in his truck and he took me to the mustang range.
I paid my fourty bucks to the girl at the window pane.
Under the cover of darkness and behind my disguise
She said, kid won't you come inside?
