Dodos, The - Walking Lyrics




You can fight the fire that's in your head
Lay it down, the hour has come to end
Walk around without her just for a bit
Looking back upon the way things had been

Man, I've been wasting so much time
Walking the same street every night
Don't you think maybe it's about time?

You can light the fire that's in your head
Put it off, tomorrow will come instead
We don't watch the tower that tells us when
Pull the wicked flower out from its bed

Man's been wasting so much time
Sending the children out to fight
Don't you think maybe it's about time?

  1. Pizzahole

    You can fight the fire that's in your head
    Lay it down, the hour has come to end
    Walk around without her just for a bit
    Looking back upon the way things had been

    Man, I've been wasting so much time
    Walking the same street every night
    Don't you think maybe it's about time?

    You can light the fire that's in your head
    Put it off, tomorrow will come instead
    We don't watch the tower that tells us when
    Pull the wicked flower out from its bed

    Man's been wasting so much time
    Sending the children out to fight
    Don't you think maybe it's about time?

  16. bbrittneyy

  17. 2minus1minus2

    Actually the Dodos were big influences on Owl city

    Emery Nebraska Martin

    2minus1minus2 His voice sounds a little like Ben Gibbard from Death Cab

  18. Swingfinger

    that's one of the most idiotic comparisons I've heard in my entire life

  19. Bob Smith

    The Dodos write the most subliminal and symbolic lyrics I have ever fucking heard.

  20. Leslie Daggs

    Never, ever gets old.

  21. Marta noSOUNDinETHER

    sweet.

  22. Tony dfefd

    It's a shame the song is so short .

  26. Miko Ancheta

    I think I've read somewhere that it was actually some kid who wrote "Visiter", not them. :)

  27. iwantausernameful

    Nkosi Sibanda

  34. livi marina

    any song that has a banjo in it is automatically awesome. but either with or without it would be great anyway..

  35. Chris Peyser

    Pandora brought me here

  36. Matti Graves

    @bananarama471 actually a class of mentally handicapped kids did all the art work for this album. I think that is so beautiful!

  42. thejumpingcar

    This drawing is better than the ones I can do.

  43. greg trumper

    @ChloJoe27 Thats the album cover. Made by the band. I think they (4 young adults, in their twenties) are fully aware that they spelt it wrong.

  44. Chloe Nance

    @thejacksavant Wow, I didn't know that.. Now I feel like my comment was very rude. That's a very cool story though and thankyou for sharing it with me!

  45. Adam TenPas

    @ChloJoe27 Actually, the story is that they played a benefit show for the cognitively disabled kids at a high school, and after the show, one of the students made a picture for the band about the "visitors". It became the album name, and the album cover.

  46. Neon Aztec

    @ChloJoe27 LMAO.

  47. Chloe Nance

    If you meant to spell visitor, well it's spelled wrong..

  48. spiritsoftheangel

    this song always reminds me of the Hunger Games...... maybe its cause my brother overplayed it when i was reading the series, but still, it works! especially "sending the children out to fight"

  49. Yo- Yo

  82. Juio81

    Great song. The Dodos are very overestimated, and a lot of theirs songs are not interesting (fools for instance is awful). But this one, "walking" is a great song like "the season "and Joe Waltz, not bad.
    Only three songs.

  83. eLO419

    @thereisonemoredoor talking about sex, you have 69 vote ups lol!

  84. BlueMoonz55

    I think God?, The Season, and Joe's Waltz are the best =/

  85. mayanaah

    ashley.
    fools.
    red and purple.

  86. Mars

    i have only heard this song by them and love it, what others would u fans recommend? the best ones?

  87. Shane A

    In my opinion, that's part of what makes it such a great song.

  88. Jacob Bird

    This is my fave song ever.

  89. Mars

    the music is the main reason i watch the show lol

  90. Elvin Rivera

    p.s Love The Dodos :] and for those who don't know yet check out meric long's in Dodo bird. No need to flame me that you know this already, its just for those who don't know that yet.

  91. Elvin Rivera

    Joe's Waltz doesn't relax me at all.... O_O

  92. Obvious Bambi
