The Base
Paul Banks Lyrics


What I draw today
Will be recognized as shape

I spoke to the base
And the base says "we wait"
So I smoke an old cigar
While the giant sun fades

See, I spoke to the base
And the base says "we wait"
And the base says we're safe

Now and then I can see the truth above the lies
Now and then oh I feel, you're truly anesthetized
That's why

When I walk today
It's in silence and in rain

Can a man turn the page
While he's trying to amaze?
So I hold my arms apart
But don't deny you any pain

See, I spoke to the base
And the base says "we're there"
And the base says "we win"

Now and then I can see the truth above the lies
Now and then oh I feel those beauties, this life belies

They're like street lights
They tunnel on and on
Into these deep nights
Where the lights circle on are so steep

So steep
I count the falling stars
So steep
Anonymous forces
So steep
That broken street light
So steep
Life is like a drug
Sky less night
So steep
I count the falling stars
So steep I will not be staying long

Now and then I can see the truth above the lies
Now and then I can see those beauties that shun my eye
That's why

See, I spoke to the base, and the base says we wait
The base says we're safe

Now and then I can see the truth above the lies
Now and then, oh I feel you're truly anesthetized
That's why

When I walk today, it's in silence and in rain

So I hold my arms apart but don't deny you any pain
See, I spoke to the base and the base says we'll win
And the base says we win

Now and then I can see the truth above the lies
Now and then, oh I feel those beauties, this life belies

They're like street lights
They tunnel on and on
Into these deep nights
Where the hearts are all on are so steep

So steep, so steep
So steep, so steep
I count the falling stars
So steep
Anonymous forces
So steep
That broken street light
So steep
Life is like a drug (so steep}
Sky less night
So steep
I count the falling stars
So steep
I will not be staying long

Now and then I can see the truth above the lies
Now and then I can see those beauties that shun my eye
That's right

Lol I kept thinking he sounded like the singer of Interpol, then I realized he was. He's gnarly.

"I spoke to the base and the base says we wait, the base says says we're safe."
His lyrics are always entwined in such imagery and power, love him and love interpol.
