American Football - My Instincts Are The Enemy Lyrics




My instincts are the enemy
I warned you
I've damaged good inside of me
I need you

Translate all the colors that I can't see
I think I'm in trouble
You explain why all the reds look green to me
With my nerves exposed, I can't say no

My instincts are the enemy
I warned you
I've malevolence inside of me
I need you

I wanna taste a little bit of everything
But it gets me in trouble
To fill my plate with the vacant and obscene
With my nerves exposed, I can't say no

I'm paralyzed, engaged in civil war
What can I do?
Either way, I lose
You lose, too
Days are nights and nights are unbearable
What can I do?
Chained to this mood
You're chained to me

Keep asking different questions
The same answer I receive
I need you more than ever
Tell me you what you've seen

American Football My Instincts Are The Enemy Comments
  1. Your super sexy boogeyman slayer

    but why are they asian tho

  2. Sickynar

    I discovered this band not long before traveling to Japan, and have particularly associated LP2 with that trip ever since. Surreal to find out later that the music video for my favorite track is set in that exact place. :D

  3. サニャSanny

    Wait, does that mean Mike is color blind?
    Interesting

  4. marcosgmunoz

    thems polyrythms on the second half have me fuckin banging my musician head against a desk while creaming my pants and crying at the song at the same time

    marcosgmunoz

    actually thinkin bout it i'm not sure if it's a polyrythm, you can definitely count the guitar riff as a 3/4 along with the drums and bass, but when it starts by itself it's 100% not how I felt the tempo/time signature, which is why it almost feels like a polyrythm and the subversion of expectations gives it an amazing effect

  5. Melissa Grace Tolibas

    💕💕💕💕💕💕

  6. leoworner

    Americ ans sourcing out jobs to asia

  7. Facundo Alejo

    Comentario. Muy buena.

  8. Fariz Qamaran syahri

    nice visual

  9. TrinityRourke

    listening to this band when you are depressed is so fucking different than when youre not. Idk how to explain it. But I'd relate it to watering plants when they are first planted, compared to when they are first starting to grow and bloom. At first I was just excited and didn't know what to expect, but now that I've seen the beauty of it, it's not more of a chore to me to water them every day, it just feels... right. I'm going through such a hard time in my life right now, but listening to them just feels... right.

    Jacob Fall

    Plastic Farm hard disagree but fair enough

  20. Calvin Fung

    got them goosebumps

  21. Butt is Holy

    I feel that my depression related very closely to the lyrics in this song. I’ve very recently just been happy and excited about life. I can’t say this song has helped me in anyway but I can say I related to it. Relating to something I suppose did give me some peace though.

  22. KINGPORTH

    Brett S.

    I wouldn't say that... for sure it is the best on it, but some of the other tracks are growing on me now after repeated listens.

  49. bingo_fuel

    ugh it kills me why oh why would you build it up so well only to end the song instead of one amazing huge heavy chorus section at the end or something ughhhhh it would have been so epic

  73. musyarofah1

    NIH
    ON-GO FUUTOBARU

  74. Carlos Manuel Feliciano

    American Football acknowledges Japanese rock bands being heavily influenced by them. Majority of Japanese Rock bands contains that twinkly tone(feels) nostalgia you know what i mean.

  75. Dinksy Toys

    The breakdown is basically 'here we are' by Bloc Party...
