The Strokes Lyrics

Machu Picchu by The Strokes

Share this

Putting your patience to the test
Putting your body on the line, for less
Didn't you know there was a choice?
It's never yours but someone else's voice

Selling your body to the street
Selling your girlfriend's to the night for cheap
Wearing a jacket made of meat
Sealing a letter made with horse's feet

And now you've heard that...

Waves turn to grey
Life in the shade
A violent crime
And that's the USA

Platinum's on the rise
Playboys in disguise
I'm just trying' to find
A mountain I can climb

Putting your patience to the test
Putting your body on the line, for less
Didn't you know there was a choice?
It's never yours but someone else's voice

And now you see that...

Blondes turn to grey
Life in the shade
A violent crime
And that's the USA

Porn's on the rise
Psycho's in disguise
I'm just tryin' to find
A mountain I can climb

Darling, aren't you gonna tell us
They're gonna be oh so jealous
We're gonna be oh so silent
They're gonna be stoned in silence

I didn't want to ask you baby
I didn't want you to have to ask anybody baby
Is anybody asking maybe?
Can anyone hear me/this shit?
Why are you waiting beyond the door?

Life turns to dust
And rain turns to rust
Gossip is a truth
And money pays for the lies we trust
Your love is a surprise
Homeless saints are in disguise
I'm just tryin' to find
A nice place for you and I
