"In A Tidal Wave Of Mystery" (2013)




Safe And Sound lyrics - Capital Cities

I could lift you up
I could show you what you wanna see
And take you where you wanna be

You could be my luck
Even if the sky is falling down
I know that we'll be safe and sound

We're safe and sound

I could fill your cup
You know my river won't evaporate
This world we still appreciate

You could be my luck
Even in a hurricane of frowns
I know that we'll be safe and sound

Safe and sound
We're safe and sound
Safe and sound
We're safe and sound
Hold your ground
We're safe and sound
Safe and sound

I could show you love
In a tidal wave of mystery
You'll still be standing next to me

You could be my luck
Even if we're six feet underground
I know that we'll be safe and sound

We're safe and sound

Safe and sound
Safe and sound
Hold your ground
Safe and sound

I could lift you up
I could show you what you wanna see
And take you where you wanna be

You could be my luck
Even if the sky is falling down
I know that we'll be safe and sound

I could lift you up
I could show you what you wanna see
And take you where you wanna be

You could be my luck
Even if the sky is falling down
I know that we'll be safe and sound

We're safe and sound
We're safe and sound
We're safe and sound
We're safe and sound

Safe and sound
We're safe and sound
Safe and sound
We're safe and sound
Hold your ground
We're safe and sound
Safe and sound
We're safe and sound

Patience Gets Us Nowhere Fast lyrics - Capital Cities

I want it all and nothing less
I want it all, I want the best for you
I'm telling you the truth

You are the one that makes it real
Even the sunlight doesn't feel this good
Whoever said it could?

Patience
Patience gets us nowhere fast
[x2]

I want it all and nothing less
I want it all, I want the best for us
I'm telling you to trust

The world you see is on our side
Take a chance and take a ride with me
From sea to shining sea

Patience
Patience gets us nowhere fast
[x2]

I don't want my patience to last

Follow me, follow me somewhere
Follow me, follow me somewhere
Follow me, follow me somewhere out there
[x2]

I want it all and nothing less
I want it all, I want the best for you
I'm telling you the truth

You are the kiss I don't expect
Remind me never to forget my youth
I'll leave it up to you

Patience
Patience gets us nowhere fast
[x4]

Kangaroo Court lyrics - Capital Cities

There’s a dark part of town
Where the girls kick down
And I cannot wait for a chance to go
Wait for a chance to go
I’ve got my bad luck shoes and every excuse
To dance these blues away
Ain’t coming home
I ain’t coming home

Shut up, shut up, shut up
Sit up, sit up, sit up
It’s a kangaroo court
A kangaroo court
Shut up, shut up, shut up
Sit up, sit up, sit up
It’s a kangaroo court
A kangaroo court

In a dusty room I come to assume
That I’ve been doomed
To lose my mind tonight
To weak to fight
So I try to save face and I rest my case
The judge pulls me aside, says, “C’est la vie
Let your darker side come out to feed”

Shut up, shut up, shut up
Sit up, sit up, sit up
It’s a kangaroo court
A kangaroo court
Shut up, shut up, shut up
Sit up, sit up, sit up
It’s a kangaroo court
A kangaroo court

“All right
I can’t do sexy”

I commit the crime of wasting time
Always trying to rhyme
Yes, I am guilty
But don’t misunderstand me
I admit defeat then I move my feet
My history will never be repeated
I won’t ever be repeated

Shut up, shut up, shut up
Sit up, sit up, sit up
It’s a kangaroo court
A kangaroo court
Shut up, shut up, shut up
Sit up, sit up, sit up
It’s a kangaroo court
A kangaroo court

Shut up, shut up, shut up
Sit up, sit up, sit up
It’s a kangaroo court
A kangaroo court
Shut up, shut up, shut up
Sit up, sit up, sit up
It’s a kangaroo court
A kangaroo court

I Sold My Bed, But Not My Stereo

Black is my favorite color
Makes me feel like we know each other
Blank tapes and posters on the door
Listen to my Pink Floyd cover
Take a seat like a backbeat lover
Mixed tapes and cushions on the floor

I sold my bed, but not my stereo
I sold my bed, but not my stereo

Paper bags and escalators
Pushing up those broken faders
Only way to find out who you are
In a town of ones and zeros
You are one magnetic hero
Little things will always get you far

I sold my bed, but not my stereo
I sold my bed, but not my stereo
I sold my bed, but not my stereo
I sold my bed, but not my stereo

Black is my favorite color
Makes me feel like we know each other
In a town of ones and zeros
You are one magnetic hero

I sold my bed, but not my stereo
I sold my bed, but not my stereo
I sold my bed, but not my stereo
I sold my bed, but not my stereo

Center Stage lyric s- Capital Cities

There's a good time to do it on your own
There's a good time, now it's time to go
There's a good time, to do it for a change
There's a good time, step out from the cage

Everyday I walk away with the feeling that I'm center stage
There's a good time
There's a good time
Everyday I walk away with the feeling that I'm center stage
There's a good time
There's a good time

There's a good time to do it on your own
There's a good time, now it's time to go
There's a good time, to do it for a change
There's a good time, step out from the cage

Everyday I walk away with the feeling that I'm center stage
There's a good time (there's a good time)
There's a good time (there's a good time)
Everyday I walk away with the feeling that I'm center stage
There's a good time (there's a good time)
There's a good time (there's a good time)

On a mission, on a mission
Gonna get it right
Don't think about it
I don't think about it
On a mission, on a mission
Gonna get it right
Don't think about it
Think about, think about it

On a mission, on a mission
Gonna get it right
Don't think about it
I don't think about it
On a mission, on a mission
Gonna get it right
Don't think about it
Think about, think about it

Everyday I walk away
(There's a good time, there's a good time)
Everyday I walk away
(There's a good time, there's a good time)
Everyday I walk away

Everyday I walk away with the feeling that I'm center stage
There's a good time
There's a good time
Everyday I walk away with the feeling that I'm center stage
There's a good time
There's a good time

Sunsets

[Hook]
You know it when you see it
You know it when it's there
Like Michael Jackson Thriller
Like Farrah Fawcett Hair
It's good shit

Oh yeah

Andre 3000

[Andre 3000]
Full length mirrors and her hair in a bun
Kids with big glasses that laugh when they run
Girls with old-school names like Ruby May
How infants with baby breath, yawn in your face (oh yeah)
You'll be tucked in every night for a month
By all of the American Apparel ad girls
American... American Apparel, and ad girls
You know what I mean?

I like it when you're under the ocean and all you can feel is calm
I like it when I'm sleeping
I like it when I'm listening to music because that's the only thing that takes me to another world
I like it when public bathrooms have scented candles
I like it when you talk to me like that
I like it when my hair is fluffy
I like it when it rains at night and I'm curled up in bed with a good book
I like it when I turn my head around and I catch you looking back

[Hook]
You know it when you see it
You know it when it's there
Like Michael Jackson Thriller
Like Farrah Fawcett Hair
It's good shit (I like it when you play with my hair)
It's good shit (I like it when you play with my hair)
It's good shit (I like it when you play with my hair)
Oh yeah
(I like it when you play with my hair)

You know it when you see it
You know it when it's there
Like Michael Jackson Thriller
Like Farrah Fawcett Hair
It's good shit
It's good shit (Oh, it's good shit baby)
It's good shit
Oh yeah

(That's not right)

Chartreuse lyrics - Capital Cities

We painted our faces
we were at resting place in from the light
I must admit on that resting site
we looked alright

But now it's just traces
As we fade in black and white
We put make up on with no light
We're too uptight

[Chorus x2:]
Color me this way
Color me that way
Color me inside out
Color me upside down

To show my true colors
I must first be exposed to the light
I transverse in secondly fight
With all my might

I've blown my cover
in plain view I'm as plain as you
But you can't deny my hues
Red blue chartruese

[Chorus x2:]
Color me this way
Color me that way
Color me inside out
Color me upside down

[Chorus x2:]
Color me this way
Color me that way
Color me inside out
Color me upside down

Origami lyrics - Capital Cities

Origami (or or or ori o or i ga mi)
Origami (or or or ori o or i)

You got a head full of paper, but baby nothing like origami
Shredded thoughts and make up won't make up for the missing piece of mind
I saw you look in the mirror, the scenery was suddenly boring

It's the end of an era
Forever is just a state of mind
You're last of your kind

I stole your diamonds and gold
what are you going to do
I stole your diamonds and gold
what are you going to do about it (do about it)

You were blessed with precision so I took you to the beaches of Bali
It wasn't fate but decision, luck was choosing sides
Flip the page to a silver age
Life has treated you kindly

The price you pay is your vision
Collision is highly likely

I stole your diamonds and gold
what are you going to do
I stole your diamonds and gold
what are you going to do about it (do about it)

I stole your diamonds and gold
what are you going to do
I stole your diamonds and gold
what are you going to do about it (do about it)

Origami
Origami
Origami
Origami

I stole your diamonds and gold
what are you going to do
(origami)
I stole your diamonds and gold
what are you going to do about it (do about it)

I stole your diamonds and gold
what are you going to do
(Origami)
I stole your diamonds and gold
what are you going to do about it (do about it)

Lazy Lies lyrics - Capital Cities

Sick and tired, and you wanna see a change
But you don't wanna change for me
Be so kind to explain whats on your mind
Your the riddle of the century
I'm afraid there was a lion lying in the shade
On a hammock, hanging from my tree

Lazy lies today (lazy lies today)
Lazy lies today (lazy lies today)
Tomorrow you might change
But it's lazy lies today (lazy lies today)
Lazy lies today (lazy lies today)
Tomorrow you might change
But lazy lies today

Please explain what you think there is to gain
When you treat me like a magazine
Just a picture, I'm a temporary fixture
Like a moment in your make believe
My prediction, strange as fiction
I'll get over this addiction too

Lazy lies today (lazy lies today)
Lazy lies today (lazy lies today)
Tomorrow you might change
But it's lazy lies today (lazy lies today)
Lazy lies today (lazy lies today)
Lazy lies today (lazy lies today)
Tomorrow you might change
But it's lazy lies today

(Lazy lies today, lazy lies today)
(Lazy lies today, lazy lies today)
(Lazy lies today, lazy lies today)
(Lazy lies today, lazy lies today)

Tell Me How To Live lyrics - Capital Cities

The grass is greener [x2]

Been a good man
Been a good man all my life
Can’t stand the feeling, 
I’ve been so hypnotized
[x2]

Ain’t nobody tell me how to live
[x4]

The grass is greener, greener on my side
You know you love the feeling
I’ve come to hypnotize
[x2]

Ain’t nobody tell me how to live
[x4]

Been a good man
[x2]
I’ve come to
I’ve come to hypnotize

Ain’t nobody tell me how to live
[x4]

Chasing You lyrics - Capital Cities (feat. Soseh)

Broken down on the side of the road
It'd be nice if you could help me out
I drove for miles to the place I was told
I could find you in the shadow of doubt

But you weren't there
(I was there)
You weren't there
(I was there)

Chasing you
It's the only thing I want to do
But now I'm facing you
What the hell am I supposed to do

Is it foolish to follow the rules 
when everybody's following you
You gave directions that make no sense 
and now I'm fucking stuck in a loop

But you're not there
I was there
You're not there
I was there

Chasing you
It's the only thing I want to do
But now I'm facing you
What the hell am I supposed to do

You must think I'm a mannequin
Because I only come alive in my Sunday best
But somehow I'm on the run again
So you probably shouldn't hold your breath
Don't train yourself to be a fool
I only want to stick around if you pass the test
Don't cross the line
Stop chasing time
Cause in time you'll find that I-I-I'm just
Chasing you
Chasing you

Chasing you
It's the only thing I want to do
But now I'm facing you
What the hell am I supposed to do

I'm
Chasing you
It's the only thing I want to do
But now I'm facing you
What the hell am I supposed to do

Chasing you
Chasing you

Love Away lyrics - Capital Cities

Love, just love away
Just do it everyday
Just do it every way
Love, just love away
Just do it everyday
Just do it every way

All my friends, they pretend
The end is just around the bend
But since you came along
I'm not believin' it
Sunshine, destiny
The birds and bees and centipedes
Until you came along
I never needed it

Love, just love away
Just do it everyday
Just do it every way
Love, just love away
Just do it everyday
Just do it every way

Money, power, a man of means
Chasing down irrational dreams
But when you came along
I was freed of it
Throw your TV out the door
One, two, three, four, on the floor!
And if you sing a song
You'll believe in it

Love, just love away
Just do it everyday
Just do it every way
Love, just love away
Just do it everyday
Just do it every way

Love, just love away
Just do it everyday
Just do it every way
Love, just love away
Just do it everyday
Just do it every way

Love, just love away
Just do it everyday
Just do it every way
Love, just love away
Just do it everyday
Just do it every way
