alt-J - Buffalo Lyrics




Breathe on me my buffalo
Your eye warms to a warning
Of a death without words

I am ill
After swallowing cups of pride
Inside it paints me
With the bitterness I loathe
For the future tributes
Of Thom Sonny Green

Breathe on me my buffalo
Your eye warms to a warning
Of a death without words
I am ill
After swallowing cups of pride
Inside it paints me
With the bitterness I loathe
For the future tributes
Of Thom Sonny Green

The buffalo from buffalo
Who are buffaloed by the buffalo
From buffalo
Buffalo are the buffalo from buffalo

And all's above lay
Pay tribute to the future death
Of our Thom Sonny Green

  1. Sheshan Patel

    Breathe on me my buffalo 
    Your eye warms to a warning 
    Of a death without words

    I am here 
    Laughter swallowing cups of pride
    Inside it paints me 
    With the visions I love 
    For the future tributes 
    Our Thom Sonny Green

    Breathe on me my buffalo 
    Your eye warms to a warning 
    Of a death without words

    I am here 
    Laughter swallowing cups of pride
    Inside it paints me 
    With the visions I love 
    For the future tributes 
    A tome sunny green

    The buffalo from buffalo 
    Who are buffaloed by the buffalo 
    From buffalo 
    Buffalo are the buffalo from buffalo

    And all's above lay 
    Pay tribute to the future death 
    Of our tome Sunny green

  3. TabbyclawProductions

    I first heard this song days before my favorite cat, who had always been there for me since I was born, died. Now whenever I hear this song I remember him and his death and I feel really sad. He is my profile pic btw.

  4. Gina Simonetti

  26. Dakota Lyn

    When I watched this movie (Silver Linings) and I heard the song Buffalo, I freaked out a little and thought "this sounds alot like Alt-J" so I looked it up and almost threw up because I was so excited.

    Octavius W

    @Alexandre Serve thats disgusting in a way the doesnt make any sense

    Elise Trumbull

    I thought the same thing yo

    Blessed Soul

    @Octavius W That's just due to increased sympathetic activity of our automatic nervous system. Tends to sensitize the vomiting center present in our brain.

  27. Xefros Tritoh

    The buffalo from buffalo buffaloed buffalo from buffalo whom buffaloed buffalo?

    Xefros Tritoh

  28. A Barbee

    A Barbee

    Of course!

  29. Alymobo

    Alt-j is so freaking amazing!! I love them! Movies are starting to pick the right artists!:)

  30. mgg

    what type of music is this?

    Garrett Steinbrink

    I would classify it as Experimental Rock/Indie

    Packhorse Triumph

    @Garrett Steinbrink now defend your claim swine! 

    bustamove orelse

    ayy lmao. No need to label everything. Oh its folk inspired texas rap with a hint of pop maraca banjo-metal electronicoleptic funk rizzle

    Jessica Because

    Banjo metal? I'm down with that.

  31. ROYCE 415

    "IM NOT THE BIG SLUT"

  32. Alyssa Carper

    At 13 seconds I always start singing "Shadows settle on that place..."

  33. JACK

    dont know how i havent heard this before, its really chill 

  34. Krew Grrr

    i saw sum one's boobies today hehe....

  35. David Güiza

    this sound it's beautiful , in this moment i feel pain in my heart , that sound make me feel peace

  36. Charles Dion

    I didn't know this song before listening the movie and when I heard it, in my head I said : Omg  this sounds too much like Alt-J. I made my searches and surprise !  Alt-J :)

  37. olivia sun

    So good

  38. Atalya492200

    The music in the beginning sounds like it was sampled from Daughter- Youth

    Atalya492200

    They sample a few different songs too but they're still good. Nothings wrong with that.

    giuseppe scopelliti

    @Atalya492200 yep, I totally agree

    hayden paul aldag

    +Atalya492200 different progression

    nope

    If you listen closely, this can be disproven within the first two notes. In this song, Buffalo, the second note drops lower than the first. In daughter-youth (I love that song btw) the second note goes up. Just listen closely and you’ll hear it!

  39. Arif Anuar

    oh thom, what a pity lol

  40. Kieran Payne

    Which part of the movie is this used in?

    jsn883

    its when bradley cooper is heading out on a run, could be possibly the morning after he throws the hemingway book out the window...

    Kieran Payne

    Thankyou!

    Ersin G

    @jsn883 No, it's after the crisis he had in the middle of the night looking for his wedding video, he fights with his father and raises hell in the neighborhood. The police comes and warns. The next morning he takes thoses pills he had stopped... The music is used when he takes those dreaded pills...

  41. 19 Firetiger

    Watching Jennifer Lawrence brought me here

  42. Annie Speckhahn

    The goosebumps really begin at 1:40. It's so haunting.

  43. Grace Jane

    Debo Baker

    Vincisomething

    I should start watching more videos from TheRadBrad. I didn't know he listened to Alt-J.

    JustAnUncreativeName

    Debo Baker

    @JustAnUncreativeName it was on tomb raider too

  53. Oliver Twist

  54. Zyzz Pai da Estética

    Aleluia encontrei essa música, o lado bom da vida trailer no telecine me deixou doido no youtube procurando o trailer certo :D

  55. Harrison Paige

    The first 20 or so seconds remind me of another song that I can't put my finger on. Does anyone know what other songs sound similar to this song's intro??

    Bpt Mrsn

    That's probably Daughter - Youth 

    Harrison Paige

    @Baptiste MORISSON Wow.. I'm a huge Daughter fan - have all of their albums and even have If You Leave on Vinyl - but never even occurred to me that the thing I was thinking of was right in front of me. Can't believe it didn't click. Thank you!!

    Jameson Grilley

    No its Darude- Sandstorm.

  56. AngelusAquarii

    This song is just sooooo good. I'm so glad I found Alt-J. I love them :P

  57. Shelley Winnie

    Every song takes me out of the Earthly elements ... I confess , I love them :)

  58. William Deblois

    alt-j is my new favorite band. all of their songs are so unique and different. they remind me of radiohead mixed with some band of horses and passion pit. good stuff.

    71196

    band of horses and passion pit.?? :0

  59. Socrapop

    Great song, but that ending is really unpleasant with headphones on... -_-

    Alexander Vokey

    my eyes always move subconsciously when people do that with sound :P

  60. William Myers

    Brand New Alt-j acoustic live 2013 cha

  61. honeydew477

    I'm in love with silver linnings playbook

    Ishaan Rao

    honeydew477 same honestly. cried my eyes out watching it for the first time on New Year’s Eve

  62. Paukshtukas

    Beggining very similar to Daughter - Youth.

  63. nasty boy

    Jennifer Lawrence... "future tributes"... creepy.

    mrsarkey

    Watched it yesterday, noticed that too, future predicted, it was meant to be!

    Lembo B

    Sorry but what do u mean if you don't mind me asking??

    Adam Anderson

    @Lembo B The song mentions "future tributes". Jennifer Lawrence is an actress in the soundtrack of this movie, and is also a "tribute" in Hunger Games. 

    Sean Flamand

    It's just a coincidence. But I agree, it's interesting.
    If anyone wants to know, he's referencing the "future tributes" that the band will pay to Thom Sonny Green, who is alt-J's drummer and will almost assuredly die of Alport syndrome, a genetic disease he suffers from that also has robbed him of most of his hearing. He loathes the future tributes because, obviously, he doesn't want his friend to die, but he knows he likely will in the next decade.

  64. conz078

    DO NOT FEED THE TROLL!

  65. 97bluerose

    I'll admit, you have some good taste in music. You found a band you don't like, oh well. Can't you move on now?

  66. gamsolar156

    Ryuichi sakamoto, Pink floyd, Outkast, Radiohead, Omar Bashir, Gabriel Fauré, Jacques Brel, Between the burried and me, Charbel rouhanna, Edith Piaf...

  67. gamsolar156

    Bach, Schubert, Chopin, Debussy, Buena vista social club, Duke Ellington, Ahmad jamal, Simon shaheen, Joao Gilberto, Tupac, The postal service....etc etc etc

  68. 97bluerose

    People, if you are sick of the fighting, go to a different video because it isnt going to stop... I am so sorry.

  69. 97bluerose

    They write and create their own music. What is lazy is all those rap artists who pay someone else to write their songs. All the singer then has to do is look "hot" and sing another persons words.

  70. 97bluerose

    Why did you think this was a good time for a joke? Then what do you really like?

  71. 97bluerose

    It is a little pop sounding in my opinion, not my thing. I can tell we have two different personalities and tastes in music. Who is to say what is good music? Besides Alt-j, i listen to Muse, The killers, Billy Joel, and Iron and Wine. You may not like that kind of music and you might think the bands i mentioned suck. That doesn't mean they actually suck, it just means that it isn't your thing. Why do we have to fight? Let's just be mature and except each others differences.
