Conor Oberst

Conor Oberst - Money Lenders

rate me

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
