Neon Indian - Slumlord Lyrics




In the middle of May
In the seconds of the very last shades of day
I see that nobodies kids anymore
Though we look that way from the 24th floor window

Cause it's easy to be the miser when no one's the wiser
Easy to shake down
Easy to glean the green from Bay Ridge to Queens
Easy to wear the crown

They say that this place ain't got a heart
Cause I could still hear the beat
And every night is oh-oh-oh-ah-oh, oh-oh-oh-ah-oh
From all the way down the street

It goes on and on and (as long as you got the money)
On and on and (as long as you got the money)
On and on and (as long as you got the money)
On and on and (Slumlord doesn't care)

Staying out of hallway and hold tight till Saturday
Cause you got the rent to pay
Dreams are shelling out next to none, with no Rubicon
Well honey, those days are done

Shelling out three G's, for four walls and keys
Hey, at least you can run the town
Shaking our pockets loose, but hey what's the use
I guess we're takin' it sitting down

They say that this place ain't got a heart
Cause I could still hear the beat
And every night is oh-oh-oh-ah-oh, oh-oh-oh-ah-oh
From all the way down the street

It goes on and on and (as long as you got the money)
On and on and (as long as you got the money)
On and on and (as long as you got the money)
On and on and (as long as you got the money)

It goes on and on and (but they want that money)
On and on and (they want that money-eh-eh-eh-ey)
On and on and (they want that money)
On and on and (they want that money-eh-eh-eh-ey)

    In the middle of night
    In the second sun, very last shades of day
    I see that nobody kids anymore
    Though we look that way, we were 24, growing up
    'Cause it's easy to be the miser when no ones the wiser
    It's easy to shake down
    Easy to bring the green in various ways
    Oh, it's easy to wear the crown

    They say that this place ain't got a heart
    'Cause I can still hear the beat
    And every night is oh-oh-oh-ah-oh, oh-oh-oh-ah-oh

    It goes on and on and (as long as you got the money)
    On and on and (as long as you got the money)
    On and on and (as long as you got the money)
    On and on and (slumlord doesn't care)

    Staying at the hallway till saturday
    'Cause you got no rent to pay
    Dreams are shoeing up next to none with no room again
    Honey, those days are done
    Shelling out three g's for four walls and keys
    Hey, at least you can run the town
    Shaking our pockets loose, hey, what's the use?
    I guess we're kicking this city down

    They say that this place ain't got a heart
    'Cause I can still hear the beat
    And every night is oh-oh-oh-ah-oh, oh-oh-oh-ah-oh

  72. Clara

    My kind of music.

  73. Reginald Ash

    I kinda wish this was 1983. That way I could buy a red Ferrari testarossa and go straight to Miami on South Beach. Vice city style 😎

    creede 123

    Reginald Ash yup this type of music should be in gta 5

    constant perception

    creede 123 neon indian has 2 or 3 songs in gta 5. the music fits so well

    BevelBoyJack

    If you could time travel with this song back to 1983 it’d be the biggest one-hit-wonder from an artist not even born yet

  77. Apathesis0

    What helmet was used for the video?!

    I need that vintage look for my bike

    PHOOZNATION

    They call it a bike helmet or a motorcycle helmet. BING it.

    Brian Faure

    No way a real person would use Bing

    Apathesis0

    I've done a bit of searching and have found that it is likely an early '80s Nolan/Dainese helmet.

    It looks a lot like an N44 from that era but I'm betting money on Dainese judging by the brand label on the helmet that is barely visible in the video. They used the same font as Nolan.

    PHOOZNATION

    I love it when I see someone responding to a comment I made....17 years later ;)

    I bet Neon Indian listened to a lot of Patrick Cowley.

  86. gonzUSA

    Remember my first time hearing this when it dropped last year and calling the VEGA Int'l hotline. Don't think I've stopped listening to it since.

  88. Oscar Valois

    Whts the name of the final song? 4:50
    haha good sample.

    Ipsen's Castle

    it is a tribute to 80s italian disco in Florence, Xenon, search for "disco xenon firenze Sigla galaxi serata 1982" on YT and listen to the vocalist at 0:35

    Oscar Valois

    You`re the man, thanks.
    It´s the classic sound of the Italo disco. But i think that this song does not sound like italo dance.

    Ipsen's Castle

    no problem, bro! ;)
