Julian Casablancas + The Voidz have revealed more lyrics for new record Tyranny.
I was really hoping they would release the official lyrics because as per recent records by The Strokes its pretty difficult to make out what Julian Casablancas is singing and as Tyranny is meant to be a political protest album it would be useful to understand the lyrics.
Now after previously releasing the lyrics to Human Sadness and Where No Eagles Fly the lyrics for Crunch Punch and Nintendo Blood have been released via the Cult Records You Tube page. I expect more lyrics will be coming soon.
Crunch Punch Lyrics
Devils, evangelicals, they puppet my eye He is the creepiest guy in the sky. Re-runs on the radio, the DJ is wrong He’s just a preacher who pushed play on this song.
I can’t live on a farm forever, Please just tell them I’m gone, But not until tomorrow, when I’ve made it out somehow. Can I pray for you, ‘ma—?
Police they get in their face Officer down on the scene ‘Calling all cars we have an officer down, I repeat…’
Best repeat what is not true Watch my neighbor We wont tell them what to do Aaaahhhhhh Can you rescue me, everybody wants what they can’t see Aaaahhhhhh Yes I want it for me, but I want it for you, too –
Come meet the ventriloquist who puppets my eye, He is the creepiest guy in the sky Everybody loves him and he kisses your hand He likes to pretend that he sings in a band. – Okaay.
Please don’t take the pain It’s running all down on your face…
“Don’t miss the show, okay?” “-Ah, I can’t have time”
I can’t live on the farm forever We live too far away From everything, I pray for some things to change, Your mother is a murderer, Trust me I know. ‘…Shit, I got excited, oh-oh’
Can’t beat them it’s so hard Wanna meet them in my prime.
Nintendo Blood lyrics
Her eyes were black and white and blue I listen to your favorite songs backwards Do you have a plan for who to surrender to? I’ve been training for you…
It won’t stop now
Imprisoned us in a song Asleep in the dead of wrong No return beyond this point In theory
Will you drift into that dark war-path, When the blood runs down their face sideways? As the party stays in the city forever, it seems Like ugly hippy neon art
We let the schoolboys in your eyes run out When you asked me to blow smoke in your mouth Like anybody the gloves I find I try Can you think back to that time?
I was so angry I got up and out of bed I spent 25 minutes reading what you said A face I know so well, I’ve memorized your teeth I’ve worked so hard I haven’t looked at you in weeks
Will you solve your problems in the day-light? They like to change the rules as they go By chapter 2 he got killed by the author Momma won’t let me out
Take me in your android arms mom-Jeanette Made up of every lonely person you’ve met Of every pretty stranger you’ll never regret — I can’t help it, it’s not my fault, gotta be possessive Each man for his own, arm in arm in arms
Imprisoned us in a song Asleep in the dead of wrong Motha-f. Don’t page me tonite Don’t stop, react, attack.
“When man has conquered the earth he will have destroyed himself His appetite will devour the earth and leave behind only a desert The end of living & the beginning of surviving, Our land, our brother we treat like an enemy But “when man has conquered the earth he will have destroyed himself The end of living & the beginning of surviving…”
Our land is a brother we treat like an enemy – oh oh Cause nothing exists except molecules and empty space – oh oh
The moon is cracked I think it looked at me and grinned The room is packed I look around and now it spins Cyborg, I need to sit down, I need to shut up Universe everything’s wrong, I think I fucked up
Only trust myself Level with myself Level with myself I am not myself
