Sleep Well Beast (The National)

We've been stuck out here in the hallway for way way too long I'm at a loss, I'm at a loss, losing grip, the fabrics rip Go back to sleep, let me drive, let me think, let me figure it out How to get us back to the place where we were when we first went out I'll tell you about it some time, the time we left I'll tell you about it some time, the time we left Losing parents, losing sense I don't know what we should do Became a father when I was still a son, she brings it out in you See you at the end of the party with your wild, wide eyes Filling up the teacup with gin and your secret postcard life I'll tell you about it some time, the time we left I'll tell you about it some time, the time we left I'll tell you about it some time, the time we left I'll tell you about it some time, the time we left We'll leave our saviors wrapped around immense new machines We're at the ends of threads that hold their bodies to the ground And then a man who looks a little and liked and felt like me Offered them some bottled water, then they cut them down I came back to see if you were here, but everything was different Your voice was low, blended in, I could barely hear you speak You were always my last second, last ride in the distance Thought that we were something good That I would always keep I'll still destroy you some day, sleep well beast, you as well beast I'll still destroy you some day, sleep well beast, you as well beast I'll still destroy you some day, sleep well beast, you as well beast I'll still destroy you some day, sleep well beast, you as well beast
