Better Oblivion Community Center - My City Lyrics




Looking out on the river bend
Looking out on the thing that isn't
Looking out on the freeway's push and pull
Looking out for the current
Little spells of forgetfulness
Little sounds are that shrill and urgent
Little insects that sting as they come and go
Little moments of purpose

I loved you
I wore you out
I missed you
Where are you now?

This town is a monolith
This town is a crowded movie
This town is a depot, I come and go
This town is my city

I hate you
I tore you down
I miss you
Where are you now?

Looking bad like those Vegas odds
Wear a smile like it's camouflage

Today was a smoking sky
Today was a civic menace
Today I went walking while things explode
Some sad independence

I want to be just as loud
All this freedom just freaks me out

Risk it all on the game of chance
Chasing love like an ambulance

    Looking out on the river bend
    Looking out on the thing that isn’t
    Looking out on the freeway’s push and pull
    Looking out for the current

    Little spells of forgetfulness
    Little sounds that are shrill and urgent
    Little insects that sting as they come and go
    Little moments of purpose

    I loved you
    I wore you out

    I miss you
    Where are you now?

    This town is a monolith
    This town is a crowded movie
    This town is a depot—I come and go
    This town is my city

    I hate you
    I tore you down

    I miss you
    Where are you now?

    Looking bad like those Vegas odds
    Wear a smile like it’s camouflage

    To the day was a smoke in the sky
    To the day was a civic menace
    To the day I went walking, while things explode
    Some sad independence

    I want to be
    Just as loud
    All this freedom
    Just freaks me out

    Risk it all on the game on chance
    Chasing love like an ambulance

    3:16  ha ha I came to write the exact same line '' all this freedom just freaks me out ''  I'm 45 and i'm not much wiser now than when I was 20, and it freaks me right out!  It's all just a game of chance.
