The Adults Are Talking - The Strokes

They've been sayin', you're sophisticated
They're complaining, over-educated
You are saying all the words I'm dreaming
Say it after me
Say it after me

They will blame us, crucify, and shame us
We can't help it, if we are a problem
We are trying hard to get your attention
Climbing up your wall
Climbing up your wall

Don't go there, 'cause you'll never return
I know you think of me, when you think of her
But then it don't make sense when you're trying hard
To do the right thing but without recompense
And then you did something wrong and you said it was great
And now you don't know how you could ever complain
Because you're all confused, 'cause you want me to
But then you want me to do it the same as you

You were waiting for the elevator
You were saying, all the words I'm dreaming
No more asking, questions or excuses
Information's here, here and everywhere

Don't go there, 'cause you'll never return
I know you think of me, when you think of her
But then it don't make sense when you're trying hard
To do the right thing but without recompense
And then you did something wrong and you said it was great
And now you don't know how you could ever complain
Because you're all confused, 'cause you want me to
But then you want me to do it the same way as you, but

I don't, I don't want anything
I know it's not, it's not your fault
I don't want anyone
As I do, it's not for you

Stockholders
Same sh_t, a different life
I'll get it right some time
Maybe not tonight
Maybe not tonight
Maybe not tonight
Maybe not tonight
Maybe not tonight
