Paul Banks – The Base lyrics

What I draw today
Will be recognized as shape...

I spoke to the base
And the base says "we wait"
So I smoke an old cigar
While the giant sun fades

See, I spoke to the base
And the base says "we wait"
And the base says we're safe

Now and then I can see the truth above the lies
Now and then... Oh I feel, you're truly anesthetized
That's why...

When I walk today
It's in silence and in rain...

Can a man turn the page
While he's trying to amaze?
So I hold my arms apart
But don't deny you any pain

See, I spoke to the base
And the base says "we´re there"
And the base says "we win"

Now and then I can see the truth above the lies
Now and then... Oh I feel those beauties, this life belies...

They're like street lights
They tunnel on and on
Into these deep nights
Where the lights circle on... Are so steep

So steep...
I count the falling stars
So steep...
Anonymous forces
So steep...
That broken street light
So steep...
Life is like a drug
Sky less night
So steep...
I count the falling stars
So steep... I will not be staying long

Now and then I can see the truth above the lies
Now and then I can see those beauties that shun my eye...
That's why...
