Time to Pretend
MGMT Lyrics


I'm feelin' rough, I'm feelin' raw
I'm in the prime of my life
Let's make some music, make some money
Find some models for wives
I'll move to Paris, shoot some heroin and fuck with the stars
You man the island and the cocaine and the elegant cars

This is our decision to live fast and die young
We've got the vision, now let's have some fun
Yeah, it's overwhelming, but what else can we do?
Get jobs in offices and wake up for the morning commute?

Forget about our mothers and our friends
We're fated to pretend
To pretend
We're fated to pretend
To pretend

I'll miss the playgrounds
And the animals and digging up worms
I'll miss the comfort of my mother
And the weight of the world
I'll miss my sister, miss my father
Miss my dog and my home
Yeah, I'll miss the boredom
And the freedom and the time spent alone

But there is really nothing, nothing we can do
Love must be forgotten, life can always start up anew
The models will have children, we'll get a divorce
We'll find some more models, everything must run its course

We'll choke on our vomit and that will be the end
We were fated to pretend
To pretend
We're fated to pretend
To pretend

I said yeah, yeah, yeah
Yeah, yeah, yeah
Yeah, yeah, yeah
Yeah, yeah, yeah

I'm feeling rough, I'm feeling raw
I'm in the prime of my life
Let's make some music, make some money
Find some models for wives
I'll move to Paris, shoot some heroin
And f**k with the stars
You man the island and the cocaine
And the elegant cars
This is our decision
To live fast and die young
We've got this vision
Now let's have some fun
Yeah, it's overwhelming
But what else can we do?
Get jobs in offices
And wake up for the morning commute?
Forget about our mothers and our friends
We're fated to pretend, to pretend
We're fated to pretend, to pretend
I'll miss the playgrounds
And the animals and digging up worms
I'll miss the comfort of my mother
And the weight of the world
I'll miss my sister, miss my father
Miss my dog and my home
Yeah, I'll miss the boredom
And the freedom and the time spent alone
But there's really nothing, nothing we can do
Love must be forgotten
Life can always start up anew
The models will have children
We'll get divorce
We'll find some more models
Everything must run its course
We'll choke on our vomit
And that will be the end
We were fated to pretend, to pretend
We're fated to pretend, to pretend

I just realized this is the greatest video ever made.

Jess La Corona

And I just realized how old this song makes me feel 😑

@Malachi Oliver I follow what you're saying now. All the same you're the one butt hurt about my comment. I never compared myself to them. When artists put their work out there they leave it open to criticism. It's my opinion that it's terrible the same way you think my work is terrible. You're entitled to that opinion. I'm pretty sure they were successful because of the song itself and not the video. Perhaps you should apply to become an official mouth piece for them and get paid for your troubles. Quit working for free 😂

Malachi Oliver

@Uzo Design lol i just explained why the way it’s made but since it’s not what u like it’s not good enough 😢 lol go have fun selling boring shit while they have fun making millions 😞

@Malachi Oliver Now you've lost me. Maybe if you laid off the psychedelic drugs you must be on then you'd be able to articulate yourself in a cohesive manner.

If you think I'll give weight to some random stranger's sh!++y diss about my design then you've confused me with someone who cares. Come at me with some critical thought and design based criticism then JUST MAYBE we can talk.

Malachi Oliver

@Uzo Design the design is psychedelic, it’s like this for a reason but i’m guessing you wouldn’t understand that everything isn’t supposed to be prim and pretty

All the 12 year olds in the comments. In 20 years time when you've got a dull desk job, and a wife and two kids home, come back and listen to this. It's going to hit you in the feels.

AJ Gaming

I used to listen to this when I was younger bc of my dad and your right that’s were my life is heading now

Pugmugjug

Heck, you can listen to this when you’re in high school and it’ll still hit hard, cause you know it’s the end of all that
