Berlin Got Blurry
Parquet Courts Lyrics


Donair wrappers unwrapped and extinguished
Crotch of a rollie inside yellow fingers
Nothing lasts but nearly everything lingers in life

Cellphone service is not that expensive
But that takes commitment and you just don't have it
Feels so effortless to be a stranger
But feeling foreign is such a lonely habit

You can't crop yourself out of the picture
Out-of-focus but still framed inside

Well, Berlin got blurry
And my heart started hurting for you

Loudmouthed living got you some attention
And second chances given without doubt
'Guess you've got a history but it's not worth a mention tonight

Kind ears captive to the beers you've purchased
Sipping through your seeds of plaster confession
Telling pretty stories, is it your sole purpose?
Telling everybody that you've learned your lesson

But no-one's falling for that nice-guy bullshit
They waited years, you can wait one night

Well Berlin got blurry
When my eyes started telling it to

Funny how it charms you, that Teutonic frankness
Listen and it arms you with a new kind of patience
Maybe it alarms you 'cause it tastes so familiar and wild

French fries, ketchup, hot-dog are the main ingredients
Swears in flawless english it's the best in town
Funny how a sameness cannot be distinguished
Strangeness is relieving when you're pointed out

Emails, poems, slogans on example
Of three things I can't unify

Well, Berlin got blurry
As my thoughts all hurried to you

Ive been a backpacker myself and have visited Berlin twice. It's an awesome city. The best in continental Europe, IMO.
I think the clip captures perfectly the vibe of the city and its weird visitors (Adam Savage on the clip and myself in 2014 and 2015):
-Eating doner kebab in a sloppy way on the streets
-Walking through badly lit streets (it seems that Berlin people and public services dont care about good lightining on the streets at night. haha)
-Talking on the phone to someone
-Taking the U-Bahn with the Brandenburger Tor patterns on the glass window
-Having trouble using the paid laundromat
-The weird/cool bars we can visit, where you can have so many beers and make Berlin literaly get blurry. (I dont know if this is the meaning of the song)
-Being an awkward foreing person trying to enjoy the city, but sometimes not being able, cause you are just too shy and awkward.

[Verse 1]
Döner wrapper done right, an extinguished
Crotch of a rollie inside yellow fingers
Nothing lasts but nearly everything lingers in life

Cellphone service is not that expensive
But that takes commitment and you just don't have it
It feels so effortless to be a stranger
But feeling foreign is such a lonely habit

[Bridge 1]
You can't crop yourself out of a picture
You're out of focus but still framed inside

[Chorus 1]
Well Berlin got blurry
And my heart started hurting for you

[Verse 2]
Loud mouth living got you some attention
And second chances given without doubt
'Guess you've got a history but it's not worth a mention tonight

Kind ears captive to the beers you've purchased
Sipping through scenes of plastered confession
Telling pretty stories, is it your sole purpose?
Telling everybody that you learned your lesson

[Bridge 2]
But no one's falling for that nice guy bullshit
They waited years, you can wait one night

[Chorus 2]
Well Berlin got blurry
When my eyes started telling it to

[Verse 3]
Funny how it charms you, that Teutonic frankness
Listen and it arms you with a new type of patience
Maybe it alarms you because it tastes so familiar and wild

French fries, hot dog, ketchup, main ingredients
Swears in flawless English it's the best in town
Funny how a sameness can not be distinguished
Strangeness is relieving when you point it out

[Bridge 3]
But email, poems, slogans an example
Of three things I can't unify

[Chorus 3]
Well Berlin got blurry
As my thoughts all hurried to you

I own a hard wood flooring company and I have just realised that Parquet Courts are my new favourite band.The irony of it is that often times I hate parquet flooring but ultimately I love them as I do this amazing band.
