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

Think I finally know what this song means to me. I can never be in the mind of the writer. But for me this is about being a child, and knowing that as a child, you rely on your mothers love and protection from the horrors of the world, you rely on her to survive live, to breath, to exist and as we age, we have to face those challenges alone. And there in lies the tragedy that to our mothers, we will always be that child and she will always need us, but as you age you break your mothers heart when you no longer need anything from her, and you exist on your own. But this will always hurt to a mother since her entire memory of you, starts from an age where she never could live without you, and you have never lived without her. We take what we need from these experiences as a child, and only exist based in instinct, and the collective unconscious. So that need for your mothers love, and the comfort it brought you becomes a distant memory thats easily forgettable..

Family of trees wanted to be haunted. As a child you cant help but imagine theres a monsters in the dark, almost like subconsciously you needed a monster to be there so you can reach out and find that love, and comfort again. We wanted to rid ourselves of that fear and just embrace whats in our imagination.

I truly think this song is about being a child, needing your mother, and as we age we become less as a whole.

When you are born, you were apart of your mother. And that part in you will always link yourself to her even when you have grown and moved on from irrational fears.

They say the most spoken word when people die, is mother.

And I know I will always be apart of mine and she apart of me.

Happy birthday mom. Im happy our existing, was our gift.

I can only imagine the kid being a grown up looking back at this clip and thinking "What the hell were these people thinking putting me through this?"
