Walk Off
   ------The National

Every house on the street
Will get on their feet
Carry the sleepers out into the weather, from the violet cities
The violet cities

They'll turn on their lights and open their eyes
Drop to their knees and they'll drink from the river in the violet cities
The violet cities

On and on they'll lead us on and
On and on they'll lead us on
We'll all get high and walk off
Into the country, ridiculous country
Where the blue sky will smother us
Believe me, believe me, believe me
The blue sky will smother us

They'll open their doors and they'll sing to the sun
We don't know anymore how to glitter we come
From the violet cities
The violet cities

If we stand there and stare and everyone's come
They may never find out that we came here at all
From the violet cities
The violet cities

On and on they'll lead us on and
On and on they'll lead us on
We'll all get high and walk off
Into the country, ridiculous country
Where the blue sky will smother us
Believe me, believe me, believe me
The blue sky will smother us
Believe me, believe me, believe me
