rome lyrics – yeasayer

yeah, yeah, yeah

when you see me, better make a phone call
’cause i’m a bad brained graphical fiend with no time at all
but just know that, i’ll drown in sorrow
when i deposit your body in the dove coat, darlin’, tomorrow

there’s no mistaking that
rome is gonna be mine
it’s just a matter of
it’s just a matter of
it’s just a matter of time

there’s no mistaking that
rome is gonna be mine
it’s just a matter of
it’s just a matter of
it’s just a matter of time

i’d sorta like to cross the rubicon and battle for it

i paint my face red, but i’m wearing purple
i’m a gladiator, high-heeled, opium-fueled, in a bubble
take, take, take, take
i take the gold plate, and silver metal
heat it up, melt it down to a soup and help you to swallow

there’s no mistaking that
rome is gonna be mine
it’s just a matter of
it’s just a matter of
it’s just a matter of time

there’s no mistaking that
rome is gonna be mine
it’s just a matter of
it’s just a matter of
it’s just a matter of time

i’d sorta like to cross the rubicon and battle for it

rome is gonna be mine
it’s just a matter of
it’s just a matter of
it’s just a matter of time

there’s no mistaking that
rome is gonna be mine
it’s just a matter of
it’s just a matter of
it’s just a matter of time

there’s no mistaking that
rome is gonna be mine
it’s just a matter of
it’s just a matter of
it’s just a matter of time

there’s no mistaking that
rome is gonna be mine
it’s just a matter of
it’s just a matter of
it’s just a matter of time

there’s no mistaking that
rome is gonna be mine
it’s just a matter of
it’s just a matter of
it’s just a matter of time

there’s no mistaking that
rome is gonna be mine
it’s just a matter of
