mgmt – tslamp (matthew dear remix) lyrics

Loading...

[spoken intro]
here we are, at the apex of the dilemma. and to think, this little gadget, which you all dreamed of having as a child is now causing so much grief. it’s like getting that one and only childhood gift you always wanted. the eternal get. gotten. but now that it’s yours, you have to pretend you don’t want it anywhere near you. you have to fool your friends and loved ones into thinking you don’t really like it. you have to fool yourself into thinking you actually care about something else, something more profound
now, think of those childhood hikes, with friends, on the trails. now download those maps for all flying use and make sure your children can follow in the exact footsteps you did as a child. is your tree house now an airbnb? if it gets five stars, will it forever recoil an inadequacy, knowing that it will never be a birthday childhood memory again? but, i digress. so, here’s your truth: there is neither apex nor abyss. wait, listen. did you hear that? that was the sound of a distant universe collapsing, a new one forming, and a child laughing. we are here but for the tiniest speck of time. live in eternal forgiveness. be ok with every thought. hurt no one. stare at your tongue whenever you like. just ahead, around the corner of time, there is another ion. and another. and always, more children laughing

[verse 1]
nothing can compete
with the first time you saw her
passing strangers on the street
spending every moment looking at their phones
(phones) [x8]

[verse 2]
time spent sitting all alone
time spent looking at my phone
time spent sitting all alone
time spent looking at my phone

i try to pull the curtains back
turn you off, can’t be touched
when all i want and all i know
is time spent looking at my phone

[verse 3]
find me when the lights go down
signing in and signing out
gods descend to take me home
find me staring at my phone

i’m wondering where the hours went
as i’m losing consciousness
my sullen face is all aglow
time spent looking at my phone

[chorus]
last thing that you need
is the new shiny feature
all the memories you’ve shared
devoured by perverted creatures

nothing can compete
with the first time you saw her
passing strangers on the street
spending every moment looking at their phones
(their phones) [x5]

[verse 4]
time spent sitting all alone
time spent looking at my phone
time spent sitting all alone
time spent looking at my phone

i call you, you don’t call me back
almost had a heart attack
i’m listening to the window moan
time spent looking at my phone

[chorus]
clouds are getting full
so you close all the windows
i would never let you die
even if our love is ornamental
you know what you need
is a way to remember
you can never find the time
if you spend everyday looking at your phone
(phone) [x4]

[instrumental bridge]

[chorus]
you should come with me
we can lose ourselves in nothing
copy faces from the feed
and then try to turn them into something
even if you choose to believe that it’s ending
you’ll come back to me again
you can go ahead and stop pretending

[outro]
doo doo doo doo doo…
