Left & Right in the Dark
Julian Casablancas Lyrics


Running in the parking lot I'm four years old
I am lost, those were the days
The soft murmur of voices in the other room
Comforting you as you fall asleep
Staring at the mother-daughter clones go by
We're in a race against time
And time might be winning

And it's not going to take all day though
Watching the urban decay
All around us, oh boy
And I'm on my way, oh, somewhere
Feels like I'm going left and right in the dark

How long must she wait, how long must you stay

Oh wake up
Wake up
Oh wake up
Wake up
Oh wake up
Wake up
Wake up
Wake up

I am ashamed I think maybe sometimes
I might have used tricks to make you like me more
When I found you I was running wild
Let's get outta here
What's the trouble there

I wanna know
What were they thinking
'Cause I think
I think it too

Sliding across the Indian wilderness
Like the wind riding down sore throats
Six a.m now you're in Hollywood
And you're dancing, we made it
We are turning with the earth so fast
That it feels a lot slower

And it's not going to take all day though
Watching the urban decay
All around us, oh boy
And I'm on my way, oh, somewhere
Feels like I'm going left and right in the dark

How long will it take to fix what can't break

Oh wake up
Wake up
Oh wake up
Wake up
Oh wake up
Wake up
Wake up
Wake up

Your Achilles heel is you like to feel your fingers on the wheel
Some live in the bottle, some live in the zoo
With the director and the actor and the crew and the viewers
Boys get their toys and girls got their dolls and
Nothing much gets easier in the final stages

Are you spending today as the same
As your life in corruption and temper in the way

Oh wake up
Wake up
Oh wake up
Wake up
Oh wake up
Wake up
Wake up
Wake up

Some corrections:

"Some live in the palace, some live in the sewer

Nothing much else changes in the final stages
How you're spending the day is the same as your life
And you're watching the time running away"

I think it's more existential about time since the whole song is about memories. Wake up and live your life sort of thing that gnaws at youth.
