It's Working
MGMT Lyrics


Here, you focus
So I can see your faces
The eyes are wrong

How will I know if it's working right?

Light confuses
The tiny isles of bruises
The mangled lines
I see the signs of aging

But if I try to feel at all I am deceived
My mind's affected
It's empty now
As I lay down
I feel alright
My heart is racing

Turn the noise on
I'd like to feed my poison
Assembly lines

Carry a velvet warning
To the yard
It's just like striking matches
The polish lies

But it's working in your blood
Which you know is not the same as love
Love is only in your mind
And not your heart

No, it's working

It's working in your blood
Which you know is not the same as love
Love is only in your mind and not your heart

It's working in your blood
Which you know is not the same as love
Love is only in your mind and not your heart

It's working in your blood
Which you know is not the same as love
Love is only in your mind and not your heart

The eyes are wrong

How will I know if it's working right?

Light confuses
The tiny isles of bruises
The mangled lines
I see the signs of aging

But if I try to feel at all I am deceived
My mind's affected
It's empty now
As I lay down
I feel alright
My heart is racing

Turn the noise on
I'd like to feed my poison
Assembly lines

Carry a velvet warning
To the yard
It's just like striking matches
The polish lies

But it's working in your blood
Which you know is not the same as love
Love is only in your mind
And not your heart

No, it's working

It's working in your blood
Which you know is not the same as love
Love is only in your mind and not your heart

"It's Working" - MGMT

Here, you focus
So I can see your faces
The eyes are wrong
How will I know if it's working right?

Light confuses
The tiny isles of bruises
The mangled lines
I see the signs of aging

But if I try to feel at all I am deceived
My mind's affected
It's empty now
As I lay down
I feel alright
My heart is racing

Turn the noise on
I'd like to feel my poison
Assembly lines
Carry a velvet warning
To the yard
It's just like striking matches
The polish lies

[Chorus][x2]
But it's working in your blood
Which you know is not the same as love
Love is only in your mind
And not your heart
No, it's working

This song's about how people say drugs free your mind and open you up to new things, but as you continue taking them, you become isolated from society and essentially put in a box

Bo ThatGuyYouDon'tKnow

Let me just put this here to clear this up:
"Lyrically, the song was inspired by the duo's narcotic experiences in the UK. VanWyngarden told Spin: "I didn't realize it until now, but it's kind of funny, because the first song on our first album was 'Time to Pretend,' which was about the imagined rock star scenario. So, 'It's Working' is like, 'Yeah, we went out there and we did a lot of drugs and it's not that great.' The song is mostly about Ecstasy."

Hope this clears up everything lol

As an old dude that grew up in the 70s and 80s, I still love a lot of 21st cent. bands. MGMT is one I have liked for years. Just here to say this should not shock the young millennials, this song and many of their song have a retro-sound. This is very 60s psychedelic pop. When I hear songs like this, I can't help but think of early Pink Floyd (60s Syd Barrett days).
