Local Natives - Shape Shifter Lyrics

My king, I'm humbled before you, I bow
Moods like you're pulled by the moonlight, somehow

How is the language we're speaking the same?
Shape shifter have you discovered a change?

Why does the soul hallucinate?
I've got control, I shift my shape

Your eyes, they swell like a riot, deranged
Tomorrow you're laughing like a child again

Why does the soul hallucinate?
I've got control, I shift my shape
If flesh and bone do not contain
The mirrors don't reflect my face

Psycho, you killer, you cancer, my friend
Why don't you give me an answer for when
When you'll let it go

    This band are uplifting because they make awsome music

  2. mayanroses 1

    This song, Sun Hands, and Wide Eyes are the holy trinity. What a debut album.

  3. Rachel Zehnder

    They are amazing, my favorite song on this album. SO good. :)))

  4. Jenn Soriano

    Amazing !!

  5. supersonicgreenski

    With If flesh and bone do not contain The mirrors don't reflect my face is like a ghost is singing. Check out my playlist Silencing team tributes and this would seem more for a ghost. Some of my videos say about mirrors not reflecting a ghost's face.


    Refreshes my day every time

    He can't help it, He is like me. This is some of the most true religious music I've ever heard. It just feels so...holy.

    I had the pleasure of seeing these guys live with the National, and they killed it. Taylor Rice was rocking the porn stache, as per usual.
