MGMT - We Don't Care Lyrics

Step out of your skin,
Put it in a jar.
I thought they were my friends
But they were cannibals.

Where should I begin?
Tell you what I am?
I'm a normal alien.

We thought we were alone
But we had just started
We thought we left home
But we never departed
There's poison in the air
But we don't care.

Tell you what I'll do
We could fall in love
Take me home with you
I'll do what you want

Put me in a lab
Splice all of my genes
We can fall in love again

We thought we were alone
But we had just started
We thought we left home
But we never departed
There's poison in the air
But we don't care

We thought we were alone
But we had just started
We thought we left home
But we never departed
There's poison in the air
But we don't care

We thought we were alone
But we had just started
We thought we left home
But we never departed
There's poison in the air
But we don't care

We thought we were alone
But we had just started
We thought we left home
But we never departed
There's poison in the air
But we don't care
We don't care
We don't care
We don't care
We don't care

We don't care, don't care
We don't care, don't care
We don't care, don't care
We don't care, don't care
We don't.

    Insert your channel name here

    +Marina G. i think it could be andrew without any autotune or someting idk, the beginning of verse 2 is ben tho

    Sylvia Halcyon

    @fifacheata nah i think its ben because andrews voice doesnt sound like that life and he doesnt use auto tune 

  65. Vishnu Vardhan

    I swear.. You know how you like a few of a band's songs and are afraid to listen to others or less popular songs by them thinking that they won't be that good? That doesn't apply to mgmt I mean EVERY single one of their songs is
     FUCKING mindblowingly amazing oh god

    Matias Alonso

    Vishnu Vardhan i know right, i kinda think that their most popular songs are not even the best, just good ones.


    You should try listening to The Dear Hunter :D


    I was thinking that 5 minutes before seeing this comment, how they're the only band I know in which I LOVE every single song. I feel like it's physically impossible for them to make bad music. Hella excited about the album coming this year though!!

  66. Samuel Tonon

    there's poison in the air but we don't care...

    @will jones You refer to them as Management still? I mean, you must be a long time fan to do that :D
