MGMT Lyrics


(Five, four, three, two, one, ah)

You were a child
Crawling on your knees toward it
Making mama so proud
But your voice is too loud
We like to watch you laughing
You pick the insects off plants
No time to think of consequences

Control yourself
Take only what you need from it
A family of trees wanted to be haunted
Control yourself
Take only what you need from it
A family of trees wanted to be haunted

The water is warm
But it's sending me shivers
A baby is born
Crying out for attention
The memories fade
Like looking through a fogged mirror
Decision to decisions are made and not bought
But I thought this wouldn't hurt a lot
I guess not

Control yourself
Take only what you need from it
A family of trees wanted to be haunted
Control yourself
Take only what you need from it
A family of trees wanted to be haunted

Control yourself
Take only what you need from it
A family of trees wanted to be haunted
Control yourself
Take only what you need from it
A family of trees wanted to be haunted
Control yourself
Take only what you need from it
A family of trees wanted to be haunted
Control yourself
Take only what you need from it
A family of trees

An Oscar, maybe. He was probably put through method acting, so at the very least, s/he should be rolling in worker's compensation checks before they get into kindergarten.

Ha ha, why stop there?! When they turn pro by the age of 10, their trust fund will be able to fund the on-site tutor and his/her parents' substance abuse problem. So that by the age of 16, the kid's piggy bank will be almost empty & have to resort to giving handy-J's to the next pedophilic, multi-media monster mogul to rise to power in the next 20 years...

...and let's NOT get into trainwrecks, conservatorships, failed rehab attempts, selling body parts on eBay, class-action lawsuits and non-disclosure agreements.

The moral of the story is this:

Every silver lining has a cloud ☁️. Some clouds are just bigger and nastier and harder to forget than others.



Gypsy's Melodies

[Intro]
Five, four, three, two, one, ah

[Verse 1]
You were a child crawling on your knees toward it
Making mama so proud, but your voice is too loud
We like to watch you laughing
You pick the insects off plants, no time to think of consequences

[Chorus]
Control yourself, take only what you need from it
A family of trees wanted to be haunted
Control yourself, take only what you need from it
A family of trees wanted to be haunted

[Verse 2]
The water is warm, but it's sending me shivers
A baby is born crying out for attention
The memories fade like looking through a fogged mirror
Decision to decisions are made and not bought
But I thought this wouldn't hurt a lot, I guess not

[Chorus]
Control yourself, take only what you need from it
A family of trees wanted to be haunted
Control yourself, take only what you need from it
A family of trees wanted to be haunted
[Instrumental Break]

[Chorus]
Control yourself, take only what you need from it
A family of trees wanted to be haunted
Control yourself, take only what you need from it
A family of trees wanted to be haunted
Control yourself, take only what you need from it
A family of trees wanted to be haunted
Control yourself, take only what you need from it
A family of trees

You were a child, crawling on your knees toward it
Making momma so proud

A family of trees wanting
To be haunted
Control yourself
Take only what you need from it
A family of trees wanting
To be haunted
The water is warm, but it's sending me shivers

A baby is born
Crying out for attention
The memories fade like looking through a fogged mirror
Decision to decisions are made and not bought
But I thought this wouldn't hurt a lot, I guess not 🌉

This child is at least 12 years old now, in about two or three more years he will probably be able to tell us if the filming of this video clip affected him or not.

Say hi

@Bobby DL I've watched the documentary. Most of it are puppets and people dressed up. Quite a few of the monsters are chi or green screen. The kid saw a lot of them in real time with his own eyes

A Hope For The Last!

Imagine being in a music video as a baby and then seeing it when you're a teen or adult and knowing it's you and that it happened but not remembering any of it, that thought sort of scares me.

pegipoi

Bruh... 🤦‍♂️do you believe everything in movies happened 100% there is no change to do this different. 😂
