machu picchu lyrics – foster the people

machu picchu
(originally by the strokes)

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
p*rn’s on the rise
psycho’s in disguise
i’m just tryin’ 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
