blue spotted tail lyrics – fleet foxes

“blue spotted tail”

why in the night sky are the lights hung?
why is the earth moving round the sun?
floating in the vacuum with no purpose, not a one
why in the night sky are the lights hung?

why is life made only for to end?
why do i do all this waiting then?
why this frightened part of me that’s fated to pretend?
why is life made only for to end?

in the city only for a while
here to face the fortune and the bile
i heard you on the radio, i couldn’t help but smile
in the city only for a while

why in the night sky are the lights hung?
why is the earth moving round the sun?
floating in the vacuum with no purpose, not a one
why in the night sky are the lights hung?
