Angles lyrics - The Strokes

The Strokes - Angles Lyrics
The Strokes are an American rock band from New York City, New York, United States, formed in 1998. The band rose to fame in the early 2000s as a leading group in garage rock/post-punk revival. The band consists of Julian Casablancas (lead vocals), Nick Valensi (lead guitar), Albert Hammond, Jr. (rhythm guitar), Nikolai Fraiture (bass guitar) and Fabrizio Moretti (drums and percussion). Upon the release of their debut album, Is This It, in 2001, the group was met with much critical acclaim, being hailed by some as the “saviors of rock and roll.” NME made Is This It their Album of the Year.

1. "Machu picchu" lyrics

I'm putting your patience to the test
I'm putting your body on the line, for less
And didn't you know there was a choice?
It's never yours but someone elses voice

Slippin' your body through the street
I'm sending your girlfriends to the night, for cheat
Wearing a jacket made of meat
Sending a letter waved with walls so sweet
And now you've heard that...

Waves turn to grey
Life in the shade
A violent cloud
And that's on USA
Running for the rights
Sleep into the sky
I'm just trying' to find
A mountain I can climb

I'm putting your patience to the test
I'm putting your body on the line, for less
And didn't you know there was a choice?
It's never yours but someone elses voice
And now you've seen that...

Waltz on the grey
Life in the shade
A violent cloud
And that's on USA
Born on the rise
Circles in the skies
I'm just tryin' to find
A mountain I can climb

Tell us, are you gonna tell us?
Why do we feel so jealous?
Why do we feel so silent?
Why is it always silent?
(I didn't want to ask you baby, I didn't want you to suffer, and everybody is singing)

Why are you waiting? By the door...

Life turns to dust
And when it turns to rust
Gossip is a truth
A little before a life you took
And why do you look surprised?
Ever since I'm in the skies
I'm just tryin' to find
A space for you and I
 
2. "Under cover of darkness" lyrics Under cover of darkness Youtube video included

Slip Back Out Of Whack At Your Best
It's A Nightmare
So I'm Joining The Army

Know How Folks Back Out, I'll Still Call
Will You Wait For Me Now?

We've Got The Right To Live Fight To Use It
Got Everything But You Can Just Choose It
I Won't Just Be A Puppet On A String

Don't Go That Way
I'll Wait For You

And I'm Tired Of All Your Friends
Listening At Your Door
And I Want What's Better For You

So Long, My Friend
And Adversary
Oh, But I'll Wait For You

Get Dressed, Jump Out Of Bed
You Do It Best

Are You Ok?
I've Been All Around This Town
Everybody's Been Singing The Same Song For Ten Years

I'll Wait For You
Will You Wait For Me Too?

And They Sacrifice Their Lives
In The Land Of All Closed Eyes
I've Been Saying It A Billion Times
And I'll Say It Again
So Long, My End
The Sorry Embrace


Don't Go That Way
I'll Wait For You

I'm Tired Of All Your Friends
Knocking Down Your Door
Get Up In The Morning And Give It Your All
So Long, My Friend
And Adversary

I'll Be Wait For You.
 
3. "Two kinds of happiness" lyrics

Life … is 2 different things,
one you shake up, then one who screws
one … one is a …
one before … one's just a wait

Inside …
…Let the soul, go up so high
…and the one who ….

…to take it from with my love
one's an instant, one takes some will
one you laugh and one that you go
what the … for,

Inside …
…Let the soul, go up so high
…and the one who ….
Inside …
…Let the soul, go up so high
…and the one who ….
 
4. "You're so right" lyrics

Tell me what happened
Tell me what happened
Tell me what happened
If you like
Get off on the same floor
Get off on the same floor
Get off on the same floor
Every night

What are the reasons
What are the reasons
What are the reasons
To fall out
I wanna tell you
I wanna tell you
I wanna tell you
Nothing

Girl, I am on
At anytime
Girl, I want at any town.


I'm done with the office
I'm done with the office
I'm done with the office
Hello, forest

I still want to ask you
I still want to ask you
I still want to ask you
Something more

I don't want to fight
Don't want it, baby
You and me

I don't want to fight
Don't wanna make
You and me

I don't want to fight
Don't wanna make
You and me

I don't wanna argue
I don't wanna argue
I don't wanna argue
If you want
I want a...

If I could
 
5. "Taken for a fool" lyrics

Sister, visit us while you still can,
Sister, don't you forget my number, on the door.
You've got something and it's so good to see,
Something wonderful that I could not be.
Everybody hanging on for their lives,
But you can't help them 'cos you don't have the time.

I know, everyone goes any damn place they like.
I hope this goes over well, on the toxic radio. Yeah.

You get taken all the time for a fool.
I don't know why.
You're so gullible but I don't mind.
That's not the problem.
And I don't need anyone with me right now.
Monday, Tuesday is my weekend.
You get taken for a fool all the time.
I don't know why.

I can't let you do those things when it means,
It's so early I don't want to wake up.
I wish I left you 'cos we never grew up.
Mama, it feels like just yesterday.
Mama, don't you forget my number
I don't want to be the one at the door.

I know, everyone goes any damn place they choose.
And I hope everyone well on the toxic radio.
A tourist, in the ghetto, not afraid of anything.
Except that, on anything else, that could maybe hurt the most. Yeah.

You get taken all the time for a fool.
I don't know why.
You're so gullible but I don't mind.
That's not the problem.
And I don't need anyone with me right now.
Monday, Tuesday is my weekend.
You get taken all the time for a fool.
I don't know why.
You get taken all the time for a fool.
I don't know why.
I don't know why.
 
6. "Games" lyrics

With all the noise above
He tried to call his name
The trial would go on
The day is just begun

Living in an empty world
in an empty world
in an empty world
in an empty world

The diamond cuts her eye
The crowd behind went wild
They weren't all that proud
By now they hear it loud

Living in an empty world
in an empty world
in an empty world
in an empty world

I'm ok, I'm alright
I was out late last night
Empty world, empty world
I will wait one more night
 
7. "Call me back" lyrics

Wait time is the worst
I can hardly sit
No one has the time
Someone is always late

I look for you
And you look for me

I don't know why I came down
I hold your phone, don't wake up
I hear a voice in the ground...

Tell me, don't tell me
the hard part is telling me
something that you are not likely to telling

tell me, don't tell me
the hard part is telling me
something that you are not likely to telling

Wait time is to blame
I thought fame was a trip
We all have the time
Someone is always feared

I look for you
And you look away

I don't know why I came down
I hold your phone, don't wake up
I hear a voice in the ground...

(tell me, don't tell me
the hard part is telling
something that you are not likely to tell you)

waiting up is so much fun to do
80s movies make out party ...?
 
8. "Gratisfaction" lyrics

...that you be so mad because I barely remember
Yes she tried to recognize me with the eyes she saw November December
And she stands to realize that is actually not a? good thing
And it is all because you're down to go out or in but never another adventure
All her friends in the alley way shout back, but she can't hear them

But she'll never gonna get my love
We can only blame the sun
Get? up in the morning in love
You'll be frustrated 'till the day you give up

He got punched in the mouth for thinking of ... living with his business
No good solution though he's only virgin of some revolution
Which of luck it may take a thousand years but I think we could do it
There's been fight but they've never enjoyed life, ... unabusive
Is it? the soldier, is it necessity ... yeah

But you'll never gonna get my love
We can only fight in the sand
You get tired when the? days are too long
You get lonely when the days are gone

He could never mention it out here and now without big tears in his eyes
But she'll never gonna get my love
We can only blame the sun
You get tired when the days are too long
You get lonely when the days are gone
No you'll never gonna get this love
We know ... of the? dark
That's about as far as we go
Get up in the morning in love
 
9. "Metabolism" lyrics

I wanna be outrageous
but inside I know I'm plain
So plain, just plain
Always, yeah plain.

Chorus:
Silent ...that's the ..
Just like I ..wanna guess
Try to find a perfect life
And you'll be in utter(?) denial

I wanna be somebody, wanna be somebody like you
Like you...
Like you...
Like you instead of me

Chorus:
Silent ...that's the ..
Just like I ..wanna guess
Try and find a perfect life
And you'll be in utter(?) denial
 
10. "Life is simple in the moonlight" lyrics

Animals on TV singing about something that they once felt
There's no one I disapprove of more or root for more than myself
I wanted to pretend that it was better, better, better on the phone
I didn't wanna tell you I was jealous, jealous, jealous and alone

So we talk about ourselves and how
To forget the love we never felt
Oh, we owed jokes that work so well
You never were so sure, was the moment

Don't try to stop us
Don't try to stop us
Don't try to stop us
Get out of the way

Got to get to climb your tree in the light of the living ghost I see
She sees her father in the old man's eyes while secretly he stares at her thighs
Animals on TV singing about something they felt at some point
I didn't wanna tell you I was jealous, jealous, jealous.. what's the point?

As I watched the bell with drapes appear
And the door was closed for 40 years
'cause we hide what we don't wanna hear
As we hide our dreams, near here.

He is coming from a part of hell
Where like Nanbu I don't go down well
He can't tell that when oblivion
It's a ditch strung out, routine as well

Making fools out of the best of us
Making robots of the rest of us
In that sense I tell in America today
There's a crack, just like going out westward

Don't try to stop us
Don't try to stop us
Don't try to stop me
Get out of the way
