Watch The Strokes Drag Queen video, plus the official lyrics

Future Present Past EP featuring Drag QueenThe Strokes have released an animated video for Future Present Past track Drag Queen.  It include the official lyrics to the song.

I really dig the video and I’m guessing this means we are getting similar videos for the other tracks which would be great especially as understanding Julian’s lyrics can be quite hard at times.

I’ve typed out the official lyrics here

Drag Queen Official Lyrics

80s people dancing always get it right
I’d listen but I can’t tonite
I can’t tonite, I can’t tonite

Well it’s something that you do to get it right
End up reviled for it
Yeah that’s the thanks I get

I don’t understand your fucked up system
Miss/this sinsister city
Try to sell the water
Try to sell the air
Try to sell your daughter
Try to sell her hair

“We all wanna watch the fight”
“Is it on Sunday?”

Hide in a hole with a gun in your hand
In front of someone you want dead, I guess
Hiding in your suit…

I did not know why/that their bringing me back to my past
I got my head in my hands
I got my head in my hands
I got my head in my hands
I got my head in my…
I got my head…

It’s just something that you do it get it right
End up reviled for it
Yeah that’s the thanks I get

Jail, that’s what you get
Stepping to the system
Profiting from war
Fighting as the victim
Always wanting more
Trying to trick your brothers
Get them to fight it for ya

I cannot believe my eyes
Darling I can tell you lies
“Coast to coast, LA to Chicago”
I don’t know geography all that well

Defying western logic
Even if it shows your wrong
I guess that’s a classic
Been with us all along
