alt-J - Hit Me Like That Snare Lyrics




I'm at the door at a quarter to four
Poppers popping baby might take some more
I'm fucking loose, you're gorgeous, I don't care
Come closer, baby, slap me like that snare

"Moon Shaped Pool" plays in the velvet cell
Green neon sign reading "Welcome to Hell"
Leather slings fall like oxygen masks
We're going down, fuck my life in half

School of magic, with brooms and wands
Pairs of people tugging like hungry dogs
For bone, baby, in the house of slithering
Floor full of happy wizards scissoring

I don't subscribe to your cultural norms
My church's doctrine has lost it's charm
Rise above the gloom of the jungle floor
Hit me like that snare, more, more, more

I don't subscribe to your cultural norms
My church's doctrine has lost it's charm
Family matters, I couldn't agree more
This is my family f*sting me on the floor

Regret my safe word, one to ten in Japanese
At the party, carpet burning my knees
Na na na na na na na na na na na na
(ichi, ni, san, shi, go, roku, nana, hachi, kyu, jyuu)
Ichi, ni, san, go, roku, nana, hachi, kyu, jyuu
Ichi, ni, san, go, roku, nana, hachi, kyu, jyuu
[*Japanese Dialogue*]

We are dangerous teenagers
We are dangerous teenagers

Fuck you, I'll do what I want to do
Fuck you, I'll do what I want to do
Fuck you, I'll do what I want to do
Fuck you, I'll do what I want to do

  16. Miss Booksmith

    Reminds me of David Bowie's Watch that Man and Panic in Detroit. Bowie I think listened a lot to Syd Barrett.

  17. bloergk

    In a way aren't we all "snares" that get "hit" by various events and circumstances? An "alternative" to "J", if you will, unless we act like a "relaxer". But in today's day and age sadly people nowadays don't get it.

  18. The ECHoning

    Sounds like something Cage the Elephant would make but it's by alt-J. Hmmm, interestingly awesome

  28. Ben Anon

    Reminds me a bit of Rock Lobster

  29. Victoria

    I'm at the door at a quarter to four
    Poppers popping, baby, might take some more
    I'm fucking loose, you're gorgeous, I don't care
    Come closer, baby, slap me like that snare

    Moon Shaped Pool plays in the velvet cell

    Rage against the machine
    Tool
    Pearl jam

  77. Rebecca Tamayo

    Parts of this gave me Monster Mash vibes and I'm probably the only one that'll think that but Imma stick with it.

    sydney

    Rebecca Tamayo I THOUGHT THE SAME OMG

  78. AssaultBox15

    Needs more cowbell!

  79. LibertarianAnarchy

    Is alt j the violent femmes? This sounds just like them

  80. Hannah Brunner

    Alt J does Fat White Family <3

  81. kai

    SOMEONE NEEDS TO MAKE A MOVIE WITH THIS. This is the scene where there's a giant house party and everyone's just bobbing around with red solo cups and the two love interests just stare at each other. And this song. In the background.

  82. Lucy K

    this song turned me into a weeaboo

  83. Diego Acosta

    Needs more cowbell.

  84. Tina Zupančič

    Hey people! Do you have any ideas for some similar music bands? I know Alt J is one of a kind, but there must be something similar, right?

  85. Nicholas LeBlanc

    needs more cowbell.

  90. kedamono

    now alt J impersonated the rice cake guys' music

  91. Green Alien Girl

    My favorite throught the whole album. Alt J nailed it with this track

  92. Cameron Domes

    As much as I hate so say this, this song seems like a blatant ripoff of money by the flying lizards. I don't know the story behind this or anything like that but it's far too similar

  93. D Solis

    This song reminds me the Syd Barrett solo career and the early work of Pink Floyd.

  94. Valentina Korchagina

    80s avangard crossing over to punk like Alt-j

  95. Anahy M

    so is anyone going to translate the japanese part?
