Starlings of the Slipstream
Pavement Lyrics


I heard what you said
The leaders are dead
They're robbing the skies
I can hear their followers cry:
Ah...ooh...starlings in the slipstream
Ah...ooh...starlings in the slipstream
Ah...ooh...starlings in the slipstream
Ah...ooh...starlings in the slipstream

The language of influence
Is cluttered with hard hard see's
And I put a spy-cam in a sorority
Ah...ooh...darlings on the split-screen
Ah...ooh...darlings on the split-screen
Ah...ooh...darlings on the split-screen
Ah...ooh...darlings on the split-screen
Ah...ooh

There's no women in Alaska
There's no Creoles in Vermont
There's no coast of Nebraska
My mother, I forgot
Slavic princess with a rose in her teeth
Do you suppose she would bite you if she could?
Insane cobra split the wood
Trader of the lowland breed
Call a jittney, drive away
In the slipstream we will stay
Stay away, away, away, away, away, away, away, away, away

Primera Calle de la Soledad

I heard what you said
The leaders are dead
They're robbing the skies
I can hear their followers cry

Starlings in the slipstream
Starlings in the slipstream
Starlings in the slipstream
Starlings in the slipstream

The language of influence
Is cluttered with hard hard C's
And I put a spy-cam
In a sorority

Darlings on the split-screen
Darlings on the split-screen
Darlings on the split-screen
Darlings on the split-screen

There's no women in Alaska
There's no Creoles in Vermont
There's no coast of Nebraska
My mother, I forgot

Slavic princess with a rose in her teeth, do you suppose she would bite you if she could?
Insane cobra split the wood, trader of the lowland breed
Call a jittney, drive away, in the slipstream we will stay
Stay away, away, away, away, away, away, away, away

I heard what you said, the leaders are dead
They're robbing the skies, I can hear their followers cry
Starlings in the slipstream
Starlings in the slipstream
Starlings in the slipstream
Starlings in the slipstream

The language of influence is cluttered with hard, hard Cs
And I put a spy cam in a sorority
Darlings on the split-screen
Darlings on the split-screen
Darlings on the split-screen
Darlings on the split-screen

There's no women in Alaska
There's no Creoles in Vermont
There's no coast of Nebraska
My mother, I forgot
Slavic princess with a rose in her teeth
Do you suppose she would bite you if she could?
Insane cobra split the wood
Trader of the lowland breed
Call a jittney, drive away
In the slipstream we will stay
Stay away, away, away, away, away, away, away, away, away

Such an underrated pavement song

Le Bulge

probably the most hilarious pavement lyric - "i put a spycam, in a sorority ... ya oooooooo, darlings on the splitscreen"

Alison McSecret

Elevate me later has way more funnier lines.

Arianna Gogos

If you think that's funny.. listen to carrot rope by them!

Calvin Whittington

Only Stephen malkmus could make those lines work

Mark Wallner

Claudius Ptolemy Straight out of the movie Revenge of the Nerds, lol.

Alex Gayle

The dawn if the internet spy cam era.. oh the late 90s

J Adams

A lot of people think this was a sell-out album because there was a song played on the radio from it. I always thought there were crazy this is some of pavements best. The whole ccd is great but the last half is fucking brilliant!!!!!!!

Años luz

One if the bands I really wish I could have seen in concert. Born too late for that.

Jill Folsom

I was lucky enough to see them twice. Once at a tiny bar in Albuquerque New Mexico in 1994, using a fake ID and then in Pamona in 2010. Both shows were perfection
