Broken Bells The Mall And Misery Lyrics

sponsored links

I've been trying to find the lyrics to this song for some time- it appears this one person submitted this song to every lyric outlet, and I'm afraid to say that THESE ARE NOT EVEN CLOSE TO THE LYRICS OF THE SONG! I'm listening to the song right now (and I suggest giving broken bells a chance- they're great and feature the lead singer of the Shins) so I'll man up and give the lyrics a go.

I know that it's not the best reference, me just listenting to the lyrics, but I assure you it will be much, much, much closer to the actual song than the submitted lyrics you have posted up. In fairness, it's possible that the previously submitted lyrics are to a song with the same name, but by a different band.
Hope this helps

The Mall and Misery by Broken Bells

Use your intuition
It's all you got
Keys are red and there's a dozen locks
Standing in your way
So goes the gold age
Your tired life

Digging for a way, you cast a spell
Carve a path from all the things they sell
But they don't let go
Just thought you should know
Keep away....

I know I know
That nothing is simple
So let to mine girl (?)
Straight down the runway
Does one want to
Get more used to
The mall and misery
The dead amounts it costs to be alive

Your lives are burning from the budding coals
If only to learn what you've never been told
That there's a real world
And somewhere a good girl
Lives and breathes

Part of hoping, the callow mind
Idle still (?) in the morning tide
Though it's a dark time
And this is your dark mind
Feel your heart....

I know what I know
would not fill a thimble
so let to mine girl
straight down the runway
Does one want to
get more used to
The mall and misery
the dead amounts it costs to be alive...
