MGMT – Of Moons, Birds & Monsters lyrics
Why'd you cut holes in the face of the moon base?
Don't you know about the temperature change
In the cold black shadow?
Are you mad at your walls
Or hoping that an unknown force can repair things for you?
Pardon all the time that you've thrown into your pale grey garden?
If the ship will never come you've got to move along

Even a bird would want a taste of dirt from abyssal dark
The prick of a feather could make a kingdom burn and the bloodshed start
The falling apart
Made me a shadow in the shape of wonder
The waves of black
If she's going under I can hold my breath till the sky comes back
Or drown like a rat, rat, rat
He's a rat!

To catch a monster
We make a movie
Set the tempo
And cut and cut it's brains out
It will inspire on the burning pyre
Half the distance
Half the motion
It's easy as the ocean

Of Moons, Birds & Monsters meanings

    I think the song is about losing a girl. You hurt her (regardless of reason) you've hurt her and whens she's feeling down you're not in good standing and if she leaves you've got to move along.
    Then, she is approached by someone who wants to get in her mushy business and when they find out the problem with her, you are the culprit. Your relationship structure collapses. You can withstand her with someone else as long as she comes back to you. Otherwise, you are with other girls but not happy. The bird is rat too, goin after your love affair and good-looking girl.
    To move on, you reorganize your life to prevent this s*t from happening again.
