Left & Right in The Dark - Julian Casablancas

Running in the parking lot, I'm four years old
I am lost, those were the days
The soft murmur of voices in the other room
Comforting you, as you fall asleep

Staring at the mother-daughter clones go by
We're in a race against time
And time might be winning

And it's not gonna take all day though
Watching the urban decay all around us, oh boy
And I'm on my way, oh, somewhere
Feels like I'm going left and right in the dark
How long must she wait
How long must you stay

Wake up (x8)

I am ashamed that there may have ben sometimes
I might have used tricks to make you like me more
When I found you I was running wild
Let's get outta here, what's the trouble there

I wanna know what were they thinking
'Cause I think, I think it too

Sliding across the Indian wildnerness
Like the wind, riding down sore throats
6am now you're in Hollywood
And you're dancing, we made it

We are turning with the Earth so fast
That it feels a lot slower

And it's not gonna take all day long
Watching the urban decay all around us, oh boy
And I'm on my way, oh, somewhere
Feels like I'm going left and right in the dark
How long will it take
To fix what can't break

Wake up (x8)

Your girl is ill, as you like to feel
Your fingers on the wheel
Dumb live in the bottle, some live in the zoo
With the director and the actor and the crew and the viewers
Boys get their toys and girls get their dolls and
Nothing much gets easier in the final stages

Are you spending today as the same
As your life in corruption and temper in the way

Wait up (x8)
Wake up (x8)
