Parquet Courts – Homo Sapien Lyrics

Parquet Courts Homo Sapien Lyrics

What a time to be alive, a TV set in the fridge
A voice that recites the news and leaves out the gloomy bits
A god for the modern soul with even, paternal speech
Hardwired to your desire, the meaning of luxury
Ever since the stone we carved, the ore that became the blade
The spices we died to trade, the gun that we used to say

Stand straight up and down
Speaking intelligently
Straight up and down
Speaking intelligently

The sensual touch of glass, so smooth on the fingertips
The erotic quality of not feeling meaningless
Reflecting a lovely gaze, commanding and amorous
A matte-finished wishing well, seductive and glamorous
The primal desire to fuck, the primitive urge to kill
The endorphins of the hunt jump like begging dogs

Standing straight up and down
Speaking intelligently
Straight up and down
Speaking intelligently
Straight up and down
Speaking intelligently
Straight up and down
Speaking intelligently
