LyricsEdit

He seemed impressed by the way you came in.

"Tell us a story

I know you're not boring"


I was afraid that you would not insist.

"You sound so sleepy

just take this, now leave me"

I said please don't slow me down

If I'm going too fast

You're in a strange part of our town...


Yeah, the night's not over

You're not trying hard enough,

Our lives are changing lanes

You ran me off the road,

The wait is over

I'm now taking over,

You're no longer laughing

I'm not drowning fast enough.


Now every time that I look at myself

"I thought I told you

this world is not for you"


The room is on fire as she's fixing her hair "you sound so angry

just calm down, you found me"


I said please don't slow me down

If I'm going too fast

You're in a strange part of our town...


Yeah, the night's not over

You're not trying hard enough,

Our lives are changing lanes

You ran me off the road,

The wait is over

I'm now taking over,

You're no longer laughing

I'm not drowning fast enough.

Music VideoEdit

Reptilia
The music video for the song was their first that was not directed by Roman Coppola. Instead they chose Jake Scott to shoot the video, which features close shots of the band members' faces and hands while performing the song. At the end of the video, Julian blows smoke at the camera lens
