Sonic Youth Paper Cup Exit Lyrics

Last updated: 11/11/2009 10:00:00 AM

Skimmin' the tops of tall trees
Through the clear light of free speech
A sudden memory disease
Claims the air all around me

I'm gettin' lost in the slipstream
Maybe relive the same dream
Of comin' in from the cold
And losin' half of my soul

Memory disease
Across United States

That I had told the truth
Feel so high
Architectural
I look to the skies
To see our bodies
They were rising up
Out of the paper cup

A sea change is due
I don't seem to (?) you
Touchdown on the new mason-dixon
Line-up map was ripped and torn
Jilted frame with all hope gone
And I don't mind if you sing a differnet song
Sing a different song
Just as long as you sing
Sing along

It's later than it seems [x3]
Time everyone came down (?)
It's what you didn't say it's what you didn't say
Don't wanna be a slave
It's what you didn't

Skimmin' the tops of tall trees
Through the clear light of free speech
I'm comin' in for a landing
I've got a soul (sole?) understanding
It all comes down to a word
It's just like nothin' I heard
Over the rainbow in time
Will be one hell of a climb
Eye lights bright
The lights sweep high clear sky
Sky
Reminiscent
Of money in your eye
Unwind

I don't mind if you sing a different song
Sing a different song
Just as long as you sing
Sing along
It's later than it seems
It's later than it seems
It's later than it seems

New ears are listening
It's what you didn't say
It's what you didn't say
Don't wanna be a slave
It's what you didn't say
Nothing to give away
