Conor Oberst - Money Lenders Lyrics

short delay the parrot blues
little voices mimic you,
it's not so hard to make that sound,

so watch your back,
the Ides of March,
cut your hair like Joan of Arc,
disguise your will,
they'll find you out,
and when they do...
look out

there's money lenders inside the temple
the circus tiger's gonna break your heart
something so wild turned into paper
if I loved you, well that's my fault

a bitch in heat,
the alpha male,
not something she'd ever tell,
except when she got deathly high,
and out it came like summer rain,
washed the cars and everything,
felt clean for just a little while

a telethon,
we drove down

the starving children they ain't got no mother
there's pink flamingos living in the mall
I'd give a fortune to your infomercial
if just somebody would just take my call
take my call,
take my call,

hello?
patterns in my mind now moving slow
sorrow all across the surface roads
smoothing out the edges of the stone
the lights are out where'd everybody go?
alone

erase yourself and you'll be free
Mendula destroyed by the sea
all we are is colored sand

so pay to ride the ferris wheel
smile all that you can feel
is gratitude for what has been
cause it did not
happen

there's money lenders inside the temple
the circus tiger's gonna break my heart
something so wild turned into paper
If you loved me, well that's your fault

there's money lenders inside the temple
this crystal city's gonna fall apart
when all their power turns into vapor
If I miss you well that's my fault
that's my fault
that's my fault
