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 were fated 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 were fated to pretend
To pretend
I said yeah yeah yeah
Yeah yeah yeah
Yeah yeah yeah
Yeah yeah yeah

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 were fated 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 were 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

MGMT - Time to pretend

Amir Khan

To me this song is about masking your pain with your lifestyle or success. On the surface, it looks you’re happy and living a life with no obstacles but deep down inside you know you are and aren’t happy.

That’s why the instrumental sounds happy and upbeat but if you read the lyrics and listen to the singing you can sense the sadness.

The way he sings it is in a sarcastic tone.

Great song.

“We’ll choke on our vomit and that will be the end.” Beautifully haunting.

This hits different when you’re not a kid no more.

Yep. Zaps the fun right out.

Make changes to your life

Getting older seems slow when your going through it, but looking back it seems so short. At the end it feels like a blink of an eye. We are fated to pretend what could have been, do what you know you have to do and what you want to do.
