IDLES – Stendhal Syndrome lyrics

[Verse 1]
Did you see that painting what Rothko did?
Looks like it was painted by a two year old kid

[Refrain]
Hot air
Hot air

[Verse 2]
Ignorance is bliss, yeah?
Well I’m not pleased
Because you spread your opinion like a wretched disease

[Refrain]
Hot air
Hot air

[Verse 3]
Did you see that photo what Billingham took?
He needs to take a leaf out the screensaver book

[Refrain]
Hot air
Hot air

[Verse 4]
If all photos were as you wanted them to be
There would be page three as far as the eye could see

[Refrain]
Hot air
Hot air

[Chorus]
Forgive me you sound stupid
Here lies the one I live
Forgive me you sound stupid
Here lies the one I live

[Verse 5]
Did you see that selfie what Francis Bacon did?
Don’t look nothing like him, what a fucking div

[Refrain]
Hot air
Hot air

[Verse 6]
Did you see that pink thing what Basquiat done?
Looks like it was drawn by my four year-old son

[Refrain]
Hot air
Hot air

[Chorus]
Forgive me you sound stupid
Here lies the one I live
Forgive me you sound stupid
Here lies the one I live

[Outro]
[?], somehow
[?], somehow
Hey!
