Elevate Me Later
Pavement Lyrics


Well you greet the tokens and stamps
Beneath the fake oil burnin' lamps
In the city we forgot to name
The concourse is four-wheeled shame

And the courthouse's double-breast
I'd like to check out your public protests
Why you're complaining? Ta!
You sleep with electric guitars
Range rovin' with the cinema stars
And I wouldn't want to shake their hands
'Cause they're in such a high protein land
Because there's 40 different shades of black

So many fortresses and ways to attack
So why you complaining? Ta!
