Yeasayer Swallowing The Decibels Lyrics

Last updated: 11/01/2012 11:00:57 AM

Nobody makes noise to make the Earth move anymore
An easy line in a shallow groove, can you ask for more
I'm just as hungry as I was before

And no one's gonna remember your name, when you're gone
Gonna find another pretty diva with a new song
Two more if you're lucky you could last so long

At best reflect your time
And show it off until your back goes out, and keep sharp eyed
I thought I told you not to lay your guard down

Your work is done, let's go out, don't come here, not next door
They might've cared what you were listening to last year, now they're bored
I'm just as hungry as I was before

At best reflect your time
And show it off until your back goes out, and keep sharp eyes
I thought I told you not to lay your guard down
Reflect your time
And show it off until your back goes out, and keep sharp eyed
I thought I told you not to lay your guard now

How can you spend your past you can't pretend
I see you still pecking on the scraps on the floor
They'll never lie, they won't take the time to get by them and you will
They're going nowhere but they won't stop trying and we're swallowing the decibels
We're going nowhere but we won't stop trying and we're swallowing the decibels (x12)
