“All My Friends” by LCD Soundsystem

“And if I made a fool, if I made a fool, if I made a fool on the road, there’s always this.”

That’s how it starts
We go back to your house
You check the charts
And start to figure it out

And if it’s crowded, all the better
Because we know we’re gonna be up late
But if you’re worried about the weather
Then you picked the wrong place to stay
That’s how it
starts

And so it starts
You switch the engine on
We set controls for the heart of the sun
One of the ways we show our age

And if the sun comes up, if the sun comes up, if the sun comes up
And I still don’t wanna stagger home
Then it’s the memory of our betters
That are keeping us on our feet

Oh, you’re talking forty-five turns just as fast as you can
Yeah, I know it gets tired, but it’s better when we pretend

It comes apart
The way it does in bad films
Except in parts
When the moral kicks in

Though when we’re running out of the drugs
And the conversation’s winding away

Oh, you drop the first ten years just as fast as you can
And the next ten people who are trying to be polite
When you’re blowing eighty-five days in the middle of France
Yeah, I know it gets tired only where are your friends tonight?

And to tell the truth
Oh,

So here we go
Like a sales force into the night

And if I made a fool, if I made a fool
If I made a fool on the road, there’s always this
And if I’m sued into submission

And with a face like a dad and a laughable stand
You can sleep on the plane or review what you said
When you’re drunk and the kids leave impossible tasks
You think over and over, “hey, I’m finally dead”

Oh, if the trip and the plan come apart in your hand
You look contorted on yourself your ridiculous prop
You forgot what you meant when you read what you said
And you always knew you were tired, but then

Where are your friends tonight?

If I could see all my friends tonight
If I could see all my friends tonight

Alright, Here’s a Lullaby Version of LCD Soundsystem’s “All My Friends”

I'm routinely overestimated.
