Reptilia

230 words on

When writing about The Strokes' current album, I said I really liked Reptilia. That is still the case. And now there's even a video for it. It's not particularly exciting, but nice and plain.

Still from Reptilia video

He seemed impressed by the way you came in.
"Tell us a story
I know you're not boring."

I was afraid that you would not insist.
"You sound so sleepy
just take this, now leave me."

I said please don't slow me down
if I'm going too fast;
You're in a strange part of our town…

Yeah, the night's not over
you're not trying hard enough,
our lives are changing lanes
you ran me off the road,
the wait is over
I'm now taking over,
you're no longer laughing
I'm not drowning fast enough.

Now every time that I look at myself.
"I thought I told you
this world is not for you."

The room is on fire as she's fixing her hair.
"You sound so angry
just calm down, you found me."

I said please don't slow me down
If I'm going too fast
You're in a strange part of our town…

Yeah, the night's not over
you're not trying hard enough,
our lives are changing lanes
you ran me off the road,
the wait is over
I'm now taking over,
you're no longer laughing
I'm not drowning fast enough.

The Strokes, Reptilia
