Rilo Kiley Pictures of Success Lyrics

sponsored links
build your own television receiver
staying home can't be that bad for me
cause i'm not scared
but i'd like some extra spare time
easily earn me big money

i'm a modern girl but i fold in half so easily
when i put myself in the picture of success
i could learn world trade
or try to map the ocean

when you're dead
in hospitals and freeways
when you're dead
in resting homes and clinics
when you're dead
it must be nice to finish
when you're dead

i've had it with you
and mexico can fucking wait
and all of those french films about trains
cause i'm not scared
but i'd like some extra spare time
i'm not scared
but the bills keep changing colors

when you're dead
in hospitals and freeways
when you're dead
in dress shirts and neckties
when you're dead
in apartments and on beaches
when you're dead

they say california is a recipe for a black hole
and i say i've got my best shoes on
i'm ready to go (ready to go)
ready to go
ready to go
i'm ready to go
ready to go
ready to go
ready to go
i'm ready to go
ready to go
ready to go
ready to go
i'm ready to go
ready to go
ready to go
ready to go
i'm ready to go

these are times that can't be weathered and
we have never been back there since then

these are times that can't be weathered and
we have never been back there since then

these are times that can't be weathered and
we have never been back there since then

these are times that can't be weathered and
we have never been back there since then
