Julian Casablancas – River Of Brakelights lyrics

We might be here for a late night
Stuck in a lava flow of brakelights
I can hear a rattling bass drum
Driving back to where it came from

Sit back on
I shop therefore I am the cause
Protect me from what I was

Getting the hang of it, getting the hang of it
Getting the hang of it, getting the hang of it
Getting the hang of it, getting the hang of it
Getting the hang of it, getting the hang of it
Timing is everything, timing is everything
Timing is everything, timing is everything
Timing is everything, timing is everything

I match your feat where... Is me
We'll show me a super night crossing roads or highways
In the afterlife of supercities, gravity devouring it's outskirts
It's me all in octopus arms, redecorating late at night

No bad time for kids who hate sports
Mothers crying at the airport
Finding the dreams you left behind to do
Waving goodbye your young heart cries for you

Sit back on
You're finding it out to get very far
We were born waiting in line
Grabbing the future by the eyes

Getting the hang of it, getting the hang of it
Timing is everything, timing is everything
Getting the hang of it, timing is everything
Getting the hang of it, timing is everything
Timing the hang of it, getting is everything
Getting the time of it, everything hangs on this
Hanging the getting of, timing the getting of

Our bodies would die like the earth would dry
We fuel and recharge the...
My fault, myself, be my homeward bound?
Where did you go, you were my ride home
Is that what we want?
Is everything shot?
Is that what you ask for?
'Cause that's what we got

Life is destined
Life is destined
