King Krule Lyrics


There's a television
There's a television speaking to me
There's a French girl
On my television
She's crying in the palm of my hand

In moving mental
I read the paper, or just the photo
I rip one out with my hand
There's a massacre
Across the o-, across the o-, across the ocean
I can see it in the palm of my hands

(Me hundo cada vez máss al fondo)

Below the ground floor
We're losing signal, we've lost connection
I left her dying, she was still crying
And now she's lying in my head

Above the the third rail
Shrapnel flying
Next door's wobbling
But I'm riding to the end

What am I good for?
(What am I good for?)
I've got no signal
Abandoned
To the voice in my head

I phone my ex
I phone my ex
I phone my ex
I phone my ex
I-

I phone my ex
I phone my ex
I phone my ex
I phone my ex
I phone my ex
I phone my ex
I-

In moving mental
I read the paper, or just the photos
I rip one out in my hand
There's a massacre, across the ocean
I can see it in the palm of my hands

(Me hundo cada vez más hondo)

Below the ground floor
I'm losing signal, we've lost connection
I left her dying, she was still crying
And now she's lying in my head

Above the third rail, shrapnel flying
Next door's wobbling
But I'm riding to the end
What am I good for?
I've got no signal
Abandoned, to the voice in my head

[Outro]
I phone my ex (x12)

Mellow Boy

In my opinion this is one of his best songs in a while. The mellow atmosphere mixed with that post-punk rhythm is just fucking great.

Personally I like the lyrics. Sinking spiral of depression, resulting in getting into contact with an ex partner.

Very relatable. Mixed with the passion he’s singing with and the contrary fast paced mellow and vibrant rhythm and melody. Totally dig it.

On my comedown. Very cozy

Mellow Boy It kind of is... It’s the most modern sounding catchy song I’ve heard in a long while. This and Dum Surfer pretty much sums up the last few years for me. I love King Krule.

little late to the party but this music video is actually a masterpiece. The man is being electrocuted, and the video is the timeline of how it takes place. It seems simple enough. A man is entranced by a woman on top of the electrical poles, and the man caught in desires, blindly climbs up to her. Only for her to cut the wire, electrocuting him, and leave him seizing alone. However, the sexual allegories at play here are immaculate. Paired with the meaning of the of the lyrics, and the phallic imagery on top of the telephone pole, as well as the sexual innuendo from the lady. Even the background color change to a hot color, signify the power of lust the man feels. So powerful he is blind to the warning signs. I think this truly abstracts and delivers a unique experience. That feeling of losing touch of reality, living the moments of infatuation over again in your head. Leaving one in a pathetic, uncontrollable state.

Also, the song was originally titled I Phone My Ex (which is the chant at the end)

Once you think about the lyrics and the video together, the electrocuting man may become even more relatable
