Foster The People – Loyal Like Sid & Nancy (Lyric Video)


Hey man get away from me
You pretend you got control
I’ve been running from the devil
Martial law, inshallah
[Pre-Chorus]
My eyes are on the world
Nothing I want from you
We’ve melted all our gold
Nothing I want from you
I’m decreasing
But your nose is bleeding out
Yeah you’re walking in stilettos
To keep me from falling through
Like Sylvia at home
Got my hands up in the air
And why are we so far from love?
If the wall is coming down
Hey man get away from me
I hope we’ll hear the sound eventually
Yeah, hey man get away from me

I’m saying

[Verse 3]
[Verse 1]
I got my hands up in the air
Yeah I’m waiting for the voice to speak
To recommence our idol worship
And realigns his face lift
I’ve been looking for an answer
We’re coming so fresh to death
And I’m locked up in the basement
We’ll hear the sound eventually
I felt their claws obstruct and refuse
Push the dagger when it’s right
Well I’ve been praying for an answer
We’ll be the greatest of the Gatsby’s

And loyal like Sid & Nancy
True colors tend to glisten
Took a leave of absence from the war
[Pre-Chorus]
[Verse 4]
They’ve locked our voices in the oven
[Chorus]

We’ll hear the sound

We’ll hear the sound eventually
The criminals are laughing with
Cause I can’t see
Chased by badgers, ducking lights
To feel something real
We all pretend one day
And I’m waiting for the voice to speak
Where’s the love?
My hands are anxious
Because I can’t see
Then we got to press the pedal
I’ve been stealing looks from shadows
Their empty, toothless faces
But the devil’s on my back
Mi casa es tuya
Parading to the masses
And then reveal
Growling mouths with rabies
I’m saying I can’t breathe
Never asked for any favors
[Chorus]

To keep me from falling through
Refugees in the new Rome
I never asked for any favors
Hey man get away from me
Where Satan lies in satin tweets
You conjure with your purse
Ghosting like I’m Daniel Johnston
