Life is Simple in The Moonlight - The Strokes

Animals on T.V. singing about some pain that they once felt
There's no one I disapprove of more or root for more than myself
I wanted to pretend that I(studio)/it(live) was better, better, better on the phone
I didn't wanna tell you I was jealous, jealous, jealous and alone

So we talk about ourselves and how
To forget the love we never felt
Are we all jokes, then what's the universal truth when their over that?
Don't try to stop us
don't try to stop us
don't try to stop us
Get out of the way

Got to get to climb your tree in the light of the living ghost I see
She sees her father in the old man's eyes
while secretly he stares at her tights
Animals on TV singing about something they felt at some point
I didn't wanna tell you I was jealous, jealous, jealous
What's the point?

As I watched the veil
With dreams so clear
And the door was closed
For forty years
Cause we hide what we don't wanna hear
As we hide our dream here, here

He is coming from a part of hell
Where lightning blue eyes don't go down well
He can tell that we're oblivious
It's addiction of routine as well

Making fools out of the best of us
Making robots of the rest of us
And the tale to tell in America today
Where's our time just look
Don't try to stop us, don't try to stop us, don't try to stop it
Get out of the way
