Cage The Elephant Indy Kidz

I want to be just like you

I’ve got these pictures keep on rolling around my head

I want to hang them on the wall above my bed

And it’s so easy to step aside and walk in line like all the rest

I never did that well on tests

I don’t watch TV cause it’s just a box of lies

It makes me want to stick a tooth pick in my mind

While the world goes down the drain I eat my popcorn from the bag

Some people say that I’ve gone mad

(I got to go down to the school house

And, and get some shoes

And get the right haircut

And the shoes, and, and, and…

The right haircut, the right haircut)

Yeah yeah yeah…

So cool, yeah

So cool, yeah

You’re so cool

I want be just like you

You’re so cool

I want to be just like you

I want to be just like you, yeah

You’re so cool

Yeah, so cool

Yeah, so cool

So cool

So cool

Cage The Elephant That’s Right

Let your hair down, let’s unwind

Take your problems, leave them behind

You got your troubles and I got mine

Baby that’s right, baby that’s right

I get in trouble cause I speak my mind

Sometimes I like it when I make you cry

Baby that’s right, baby that’s right

I know tomorrow we may have regrets

But as for right now where’s the party at?

We’ll stay up all night waiting for the sun to shine, sun to shine

Baby that’s right, baby that’s right, baby that’s right, ahh

Take a bottle of whiskey and a bottle of wine

Take all your problems, leave them far behind

I say I’m sorry almost every time

Baby that’s right, baby that’s right

I know tomorrow we may have regrets

But as for right now where’s the party at?

We’ll stay up all night waiting for the sun to shine, sun to shine

Baby that’s right, baby that’s right, baby that’s right, ahh

Wait ’til tomorrow then we can reflect

But as for right now where’s the party at?

We’ll stay up all night waiting for the sun to shine, sun to shine

Baby that’s right, baby that’s right, baby that’s right

Ahh, ahh, ooh, ooh

Cage The Elephant Rubber Ball

Rolling around like a big rubber ball

Writing this song about some things that I saw

Trying to stand like a big strong tough man

Finding out fast that I’m sinking in sand

All I got is nothing but

A little bit of love and gonna

Give it to the people then they’ll

See, then they’ll see

Spinning the tops as the tables they turn

Made some mistakes but I still couldn’t learn

Covered my tracks thought I was fine

No self control now I’m back here in line

All I got is nothing but

A little bit of love and gonna

Give it to the people then they’ll

See, then they’ll see

Cage The Elephant Whole Wide World

When I was a young boy

My mama said to me

“There’s only one girl in the world for you

And she probably lives in Tahiti.”

I’d go the whole wide world

I’d go the whole wide world just to find her

Or maybe she’s in the Bahamas

Where the Caribean Sea is blue

Weeping in a tropical moonlit night

Because nobody’s talking about you

I’d go the whole wide world

I’d go the whole wide world just to find her

I’d go the whole wide world

I’d go the whole wide world

To find out where they hide her

I’d go the whole wide world

I’d go the whole wide world just to find her

Why am I hanging around in the rain out here

Trying to pick up a girl

Why are my eyes filling up with these lonely tears

When there’s girls all over the world

Is she lying on a tropical beach somewhere

Underneath a tropical sun

Pining a way in a heat wave there

Hoping that I won’t be long

I should be lying on that sun soaked beach with her

Caressing her warm, brown skin

And then in a year or maybe not quite

We’ll be sharing the same next of kin

I’d go the whole wide world

I’d go the whole wide world just to find her

I’d go the whole wide world

I’d go the whole wide world just to find her

I’d go the whole wide world

I’d go the whole wide world

To find out where they hide her

I’d go the whole wide world

I’d go the whole wide world just to find her

I’d go the whole wide world

I’d go the whole wide world

To find out where they hide her

Yeah! Hey!

Cage The Elephant Tiny Little Robots

I’ve got you movin’ to the city

Oh my, you think you’re lookin’ pretty

They got a pistol too

Tucked down beneath their shoe

It’s a new sensation

World annihilation

Moving to the music

Patiently it’s waiting

The city’s screaming

I can hear them breathing

Crying out for wisdom

Hungry minds are feeding

I know that you’re tired of this

Cause you’re a robot

They designed your life

True souls said you know what’s right

You can join us on the other side

Are you scared?

Are you scared?

Are you scared?

I’ve got you marching to a drum beat

Oh my you got another nose bleed

They’ll keep you so amused

You’ll never taste the truth

It’s a new creation

Total domination

Chains across your shoulders

Social captivation

Kill our leaders

Persecute our teachers

Criticize our culture

Crucify free thinkers

I know that you’re tired of this

Cause you’re a robot

They designed your life

But true souls said you know what’s right

You can join us on the other side

Are you scared?

Are you scared?

Are you scared?

Fill our eyes with money

Vanity that’s cunning

Only on the surface

Diamonds look so stunning

Mass deception

Altered our perception

Sold it to the children

Made a new connection

And I know that you’re tired of this

Cause you’re a robot

They designed your life

But true souls said you know what’s right

You can join us on the other side

Our sidewalks are broken

Our minds have been twisted

The billboards are lying, the lies have been made

The streets are all empty, we paved them with zombies

A lost generation generically made

A dream that was creeping I kept in my sight

Then it turned and it took me

An explosion, it shook me

Beauty that screams, “I’m alive”

When amidst all the madness, I saw a flower

Cage The Elephant Golden Brown

Golden brown, texture like sun

Lays me down, with my mind she runs

Throughout the night, no need to fight

Never a frown with golden brown

Every time, just like the last

On her ship tied to the mast

To distant lands, takes both my hands

Never a frown with golden brown

Golden brown, finer temptress

Through the ages, she’s heading west

From far away, stays for a day

Never a frown with golden brown

Never, never a, never a frown with golden, with golden brown

Never, never a frown with golden, with golden brown

Never, never a frown with golden, with golden brown

Never, never a frown with golden, with golden brown

Cage The Elephant Telescope

In a far and distant galaxy

Inside my telescope I see

A pair of eyes peer back at me

He walks and talks and looks like me

Sits around inside his house

From room to room he moves about

Fills his life with pointless things

And wonders how it all turns out.

Do do do do do

Do do do do do

It’s safe to say that

I don’t think you understand!

There’s nowhere left to turn

Walls keep breaking

Time is like a leaf in the wind

Either it’s time well-spent

Or time I’ve wasted.

Don’t waste it.

Afraid of what the truth might bring

He locks his doors and never leaves

Desperately searching for signs

Too terrified to find a thing

He battens all the hatches down

And wonders why he hears no sound

Frantically searching his dreams

He wonders what it’s all about

Do do do do do

Do do do do do

It’s safe to say that

I don’t think you understand!

There’s nowhere left to turn

Walls keep breaking

Time is like a leaf in the wind

Either it’s time well-spent

Or time I’ve wasted…

Clearing my mind,

Losing my friends

Follow my fears

Do it again.

You say how do you do.

Man, how ’bout you?

Man, how ’bout you?

To be free

To be son

To be killed

To be saved

In my head, I’m alone

I’m un-dead, I’m ashamed

Just like you,

I’ve been tryin’ to escape

In my bones I feel cold.

I give thanks to the Lord

In the sea

In this street

Let me go

Let me be,

I don’t need to be here,

I’m alone

Can’t you see? Can’t you see?

I don’t think you understand!

There’s nowhere left to turn

Walls keep breaking

Time is like a leaf in the wind

Either it’s time well-spent

Or time I’ve wasted…

Don’t waste it.

Cage The Elephant Cry Baby

I think it’s pretty strange

Watching the passersby

Crawling all over one another

Trying to get ahead in life

Monday you cough

Tuesday you cry

Wednesday in bed

What if you die?

You say that I’m insane

I say you’re probably right

We all got something important to say

But talking’s a waste of time

Monday you cough

Tuesday you cry

Wednesday in bed

What if you die?

Cry baby cry

Kick, scream, fight

Hold on with all your might

You’re gonna die, die

Open up your eyes or life will pass you by

Don’t you think it’s pretty strange?

All got something to hide

House in the desert, top of a mountain

Lost in a deep-sea dive

Monday you cough

Tuesday you cry

Wednesday in bed

Thursday you die

Cry baby cry

Kick, scream, fight

Hold on with all your might

You’re gonna die, die

Open up your eyes or life will pass you by

Without love

Without love

Nothing else will ever be enough

Cry baby cry

Like it or not

Like it or not

It’s a matter of time

Cry baby cry

Like it or not

Like it or not

It’s a matter of time

It’s a matter of time

Cage The Elephant Cold Cold Cold

Doctor look into my eyes

I’ve been breathing air but there’s no sign of life

Doctor the problem’s in my chest

My heart feels cold as ice but it’s anybody’s guess

Doctor can you help me cause I don’t feel right

Better make it fast before I change my mind

Doctor can you help me cause I don’t feel right

Better make it fast before I change my mind

Well it’s cold, cold, cold, cold inside

Darker in the day than the dead of night

Cold, cold, cold, cold inside

Doctor can you help me cause something don’t feel right

Something don’t feel right

Sweet nurse don’t look at me that way

I’ve seen those eyes before I can tell you want to play

Counselor give me some advice

Tell me how hard will I fall if I live a double life

Doctor can you help me cause I don’t feel right

Better make it fast before I change my mind

Doctor can you help me cause I don’t feel right

Better make it fast because there ain’t much time

Well it’s cold, cold, cold, cold inside

Darker in the day than the dead of night

Cold, cold, cold, cold inside

Doctor can you help me cause something don’t feel right

Something don’t feel right, something just ain’t right

And as the darkness falls it fills up both my eyes

My life before me like a flash in the night

With my arms open wide

Well it’s cold, cold, cold, cold inside

Cold, cold, cold, cold inside

Cold, cold, cold, cold inside

Doctor can you help me cause something don’t feel right

Something don’t feel right, something just ain’t right

Cage The Elephant How Are You True

Wake up, say a little prayer

Out of bed to the bathroom where

I take a look at myself and I stop and stare

And I wonder who is this standing here

And I try to find the will to carry on

Wonder how much longer I can carry on

Cause these days they take so long, yes they do

Hey, how are you true?

The light will guide you home, yes it will

Hey, how are you true?

Well there’s one thing that you should know

Yes you should

You need love, you need love, you need love

You need love

All your days spend countin’ numbers

‘Til one day you’ll find, day you’ll find

That life has passed you by

And in the quiet still of silence try to hide your eyes

Oh no so don’t cry, oh no

Hey, how are you true?

The light will guide you home, yes it will

Oh the years, they turn so fast

Soon the present will be past and you’ll look back and laugh

Yes you will

Well I can still remember, yes I was a young man too

Alone, but not forgotten and the candle shining through

Still all these words I’ve spoken don’t mean anything at all

Without love, without love, without love

Without love

Do, do, do, oh yeah

Do, do, do, oh yeah

I remember clearly we were both there on the airplane

Told me all your secrets, oh I never saw it coming

I thought that you were joking

You were actually quite serious
