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

You were a child
Crawling on your knees toward him
Making momma so proud
But your voice is too loud
We like to watch you laughing
Picking insects off of plants
No time to think of consequences
Control yourself
Take only what you need from it
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
Memories fade
Like looking through a fogged mirror
Decisions too
Decisions are made
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 wanting to be haunted
Control yourself
Take only what you need from it
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
Control yourself
Take only what you need from it
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
Control yourself
Take only what you need from it
A family of trees wanting to be haunted

2016 : My mom's taking me to the barn today to see our horse! We were listening to this song on our 30 minute trip there, passing by the familiar trees and bridges. My dad was at work and after he was done he was gonna come to the barn as well! My parents loved to race on the way back and whoever lost had to make dinner, that was so much fun.

2020 : I force myself to ignore to screaming and yelling from the kitchen. My parents fight a lot now and theres nothing I can do. My mom drinks and my dad's stressed. I just turn off the lights in my room and shove my earbuds in my ears. No one notices the soft whimpers I let out when I cry. The only thing that comforts me is this song on repeat, and remember the happy memories of when I was younger. Everyone yells at me to listen to them or to speak up when I talk, but if I talk to much they get annoyed. It's not my fault, i live in a house with an alcoholic mom that yells at me whenever she gets the chance, a dad that's barely home, and two older brothers that hit, push, or yell at me even though I tell them to stop. I think about killing myself a lot.





A lot can happen in four years.
