Castletalk lyrics

LAURA + MARTY

When I want to feed
But I don’t know why
When I want to feel
I’m not talking
Or corner cropping
Send pound for pound
I’ll use my know-how

Got a list of lips
Twisted tongues and tips
Fancier than church
Instead, install
Cold hands, hot heart
Burning black cloud
I’ll use my know-how

Laura and Marty went to a party
And they hard-lined
I’ve no intention
Not to mention
That you hard-lined

So you’ve lost your touch
Limp and losing sleep
If you don’t have fun
Crowd turned panic
Destroyed, damaged
Born to a ghost town
I’ll use my know-how

I DON’T MIND IT

I might lift the curse and
Fight you all the time
I might pinch the ends and
Throw you back in line
It’s easy and generic
So I can mute the beat
And the only one left in
Is gonna be me

‘cause I don’t mind it

I don’t wanna miss you
It’s tight I can’t unwind
I’ll be blown to bits but
I don’t really want to die
And you do me great service
When you call my bluff
I’ll stay home for hours
But it’s just never enough

I might beg your pardon
When the road is rude
And I might count the hours
And bend the wire to tune
Dissect drawing circles
Or spinning in my seat
When the coach is yelling
Running through the streets

‘cause I don’t mind it

I don’t wanna miss you
It’s tight I can’t unwind
I’ll be blown to bits but
I don’t really want to die
And you do me great service
When you call my bluff
I’ll stay home for hours
But it’s just never enough

BOSS

Who will you meet the morning of
You change skins, you sleep
And call your baby
Who will you meet when you’re in love
A fish to catch
A friend to shove

‘Cause I could cut the cord with you
Any-day
I don’t need you to remind me who’s the boss
‘Cause I could be the boss of you
Any-day
If I tried
Really hard

When you pray your hands go raw
When you kneel you sink and rupture reason
And when the bandages fall off
We are inside out again

‘Cause I could cut the cord with you
Any-day
I don’t need you to remind me who’s the boss
‘Cause I could be the boss of you
Any-day
If I tried
Really hard

NORMAL

I’ll keep you
My fashion friend
You’re upside-down
With arrogance
You touch your toes
And stick your nose in the air

Eye to eye
What you wanna see
Eye to eye
Make you proud of me

I wouldn’t be surprised
If no one wants to waste their time with me
I’m joyfully employed
I’m Normal
I wouldn’t be surprised
If no one wants to waste their time with me
I’m joyfully employed
I’m Normal

Mister hands my new attire
You bury my rings and make me dig
I am disgraced and got no soul
When you’re around

Eye to eye
What you wanna see
Eye to eye
Make you proud of me

I wouldn’t be surprised
If no one wants to waste their time with me
I’m joyfully employed
I’m Normal
I wouldn’t be surprised
If no one wants to waste their time with me
I’m joyfully employed
I’m Normal

A NEW KID

If I invite you over
Can you look me in the eye
Because your head is a cavern
And I wanna crawl inside
I put some speakers in your ears
And I stuff up where you speak
You gotta whole lotta nerve
To think that you can fool me

‘Cause there’s a new kid on my street
And he’s called the new elite

Let me shovel out your brains
Hang my image in your skull
So I can be the vision
In your nightmares from now on
You put me in my place
And I gotta be real mean
You gotta whole lotta nerve
To think that you can fool me

‘Cause there’s a new kid on my street
And he’s called the new elite

There’s a new kinda high
When they find a pill to try
And you can coax me politely
But I’m not gonna lie
I need a brief inspection
And a judge up on the seat
You gotta whole lotta nerve
To think that you can fool me

FALL ASLEEP

If you hold me to my word
Then I will never speak
‘Cause I’m forgotten
I’ve forgot
Everything I need
I pass the boss the phone
But who’s on to receive
It’s a loss
I can’t decide
Which cold call I need

I want you
To fall asleep
And die with me
The level gets too deep
And it dies with me

I have secret eyes
That glue me to my seat
‘Cause I’m forgotten
I’ve forgot
Exactly what I need
It’s classic if it’s kitsch
I’m nude as I was born
But I’m at loss
I can’t decide
Which hat should be worn

I want you
To fall asleep
And die with me
The level gets too deep
And it dies with me

You stammer on your crutch
‘Cause no one likes you much
You skunk the town
And who’s around
To place you in the bunch
I’m nesting in a void
And living in a hole
It can’t be said
I’ll burn the bed
To warm you in the cold

I want you
To fall asleep
And die with me
The level gets too deep
And it dies with me

WILD

I realize in record time
I know I can’t change
You’ve bent my blood
And that’s enough
I know I can’t change

But that’s why
I need you to know
It’s wild and cured

I still hear you
Up in my room
You echo up the stairs
You claw the door
And leave a mark
And then you’re not there

But that’s why
I need you to know
I’m trying
It’s wild but they found a cure

Hold your hand
On my head
You can watch me hold the bed
And I’ll pretend to me asleep
You may claim me your gold
But I’m not yours to have or hold
You take all that’s left of me

But that’s why
I need you to know
I’m trying
It’s wild but they found a cure

In a plume of smoke
A family ghost
Shows me all her teeth
The brightest white
Like heaven’s light
Planting all it’s seeds

I am walking through our home

NOTHING AT ALL

I’ve been walking backwards
Listening to your word of mouth
Your secret’s wide open
And mine has slithered out

Make your bed or nothing at all

Excess, you sit sideways
And you dance a crooked dance
Excess, you are evil
Dressed for church and holding hands

Make your bed or nothing at all

I wanna be your late-night crisis line
I wanna give you all a piece of mind
I wanna be your late-night crisis line
I wanna give you all a piece of mind

I’ve been walking backwards
Listening to your word of mouth
Your secret’s wide open
And mine has slithered out

Make your bed or nothing at all

SHEEP

I will be there Saturday night
Sucking up the trails of white light
I haunt you
Miss you like a snake in the grass
Four sore winters have passed
I’ll haunt you

You’d count sheep with anyone
Anyone would do
You’d count sheep with anyone
Anyone would do

I will be the corner and cast
Meant for men, I’m loaded with plans
I’m cleaning clocks and hustling for time
I’m Ivy League, I know that you’re mine

You’d count sheep with anyone
Anyone would do
You’d count sheep with anyone
Anyone would do

DELUXE

Take on your new jaw for challenge
Grit teeth in your sleep
Powder pile by your pillow
Dusting all your dreams

But it’s not like I planned
The teeth don’t make the man
And he locks where I sit
He sinks into my wrist

Better living with some new chops
Three square meals a day
He can’t hold down this new job
He blows his bonus pay

‘Cause it’s not like I planned
The teeth don’t make the man
And he locks where I sit
He sinks into my wrist

GHOST SOLO

I took a back road with this guy
I needed you so I could hide
‘Cause what they said was something I could not repeat

They went dancing
It was planned and I –
I was thrust into my own nightmare

This is it
It’s the last time
Please is this it
It’s the last time
You set me up

I took a back seat driver’s mind
His brains are night trains running blind
He talked between the lines and
I could trust his speed

They were midnight rats
Chasing cabs for cash
You are young and not meant for that seen

This is it
It’s the last time
Please is this it
It’s the last time
You set me up

I got a feeling you’re all wrong
You gave us all the slip
I’ve got this feeling you’re all wrong
I’m begging you
To loosen up your grip

Statements are nameless
It’s romance
By means, I do not need this
This is the last time
I mean it

This is it
It’s the last time
Please is this it
It’s the last time
You set me up

I got a feeling you’re all wrong
You gave us all the slip
I’ve got this feeling you’re all wrong
I’m begging you
To loosen up your grip
