Strokes – Ize Of The World lyrics
I think I know what you mean but watch what you say
'Cause they'll be trying to knock you down in some way
Sometimes it feels like the world is falling asleep
How do you wake someone up from inside a dream?
Your mind would wonder and search for it's place in the night
Your body followed this feeling like following light
Once that your music was born it followed you round
And then it gave your activities meaning and let you be loud.
Your sad but you smile.
It's not in your eyes
Your eyeballs don't change
It's the muscles around your eyes
An egg to fertilize
A pulse to stabilize
A body to deodorize
A life to scrutinize
A child to criticize
Young adults to modernize
Citizens to terrorize
Generations to desensitize?
You're dreams are sweet and obsessed
And you're overworked
You've over taken by visions of being overlooked
How disappointed would D(ead)I(dealistic) D(esperate) I(nventor) P(ioneer) P(hilosophers) be
To see such our power in our hands all wasted on greed?
Am I a prisoner to instincts or do my thoughts just live as free and detatched as boats to the dock?
Just as music was born and detached from your heart.
Is your free time to free mind or for falling apart.
Night after night
You turn out the light
You don't fall asleep
"are we... are we done?"
A desk to organize
A product to advertise
A market to monopolize
Movie stars you idolize
Leaders to scandalize
Enemies to neutralize
No time to apologize
Fury to tranquilize
Weapons to synchronize
