leeway lyrics – we were evergreen

away with the lights
and down
with every last remaining
conversational height
are we out of sight?
i’m not about to let this
keep me up in the night

oh we happy few
we condescending
congregating
party of fools

any words
will do
a streaking and a stocking
in a room with a view

and i’ve done
i’ve done what i could
to black-and-whiten down technicolorhood
but i know, i got to be good
if i wanna catch the break that
i know i should
yes i should, yes i should
have run away while i could

four years and a week
to complete
what damon or gonzales
would have done in a day
here’s to our defeat
we’ll sugarcoat it all to cut the meaning away

this is all so well
as long as we get all the leeway needed to think
we are hooks and cowbells
i hope this ends up in a kenzo advertis*m*nt

and i’ve done
i’ve done what i could
to black-and-whiten down technicolorhood
but i know, i got to be good
if i wanna catch the break that
i know i should
yes i should, yes i should
have run away while i could

i got nothing to say
i got nothing new
not a thing to convey
to you

i got no love to give
and no message at all
you won’t learn anything
from this song
