The World We Live In
The Killers Lyrics


This is the world that we live in
I feel myself get tired
This is the world that we live in

Well, maybe I was mistaken
I heard a rumor that you quit this day and age
Well, maybe I was mistaken

Bless your body, bless your soul
Pray for peace and self control

I gotta believe it's worth it
Without a victory I'm so sanctified and free
Well, maybe I'm just mistaken

Lesson learned
And the wheels keep turning

This is the world that we live in
I can't take blame for two
This is the world that we live in
And maybe we'll make it through

Bless your body, bless your soul
Reel me in and cut my throat
Underneath the waterfall
Baby, we're still in this, oh, yeah

This is the world that we live in
I feel myself get tired
This is the world that we live in

I had a dream that I was falling down
There's no next time, alone
A storm wastes its water on me
But my life was free

I guess it's the world that we live in
It's not too late for that
This is the world that we live in
And no, we can't go back

This is the world that we live in
I still want something real
This is the world that we live in
I know that we can heal over time

This is the world that we live in
This is the world that we live in

Fuck. So The Killers were one of those bands I grew up with (born in 1990) as they were coming out with their first 3 albums (scientifically, you tend to attach yourself to the music you were listening to when you were between 14 and 16). Hot Fuss is an absolute banger. Sam's Town is basically a grittier Hot Fuss with a little less creativity and a whole lot more Brandon style writing. Day & Age was initially a head scratcher for me. I enjoyed Human. Joy Ride. Sometimes Losing Touch.

Before I continue, this anecdote needs a little background. As I am now growing into my 30s, I am now realizing that my mother was indeed "always right" and she obsessively wants to always do the right thing and take charge of a situation and shoulder a lot of responsibility. I am now realizing that that is what I have been aspiring to. When we were kids though, we never really appreciated the effort she put forth. We took for granted how she was the facilitator for my brother's, my father's, and my own happiness. She never wanted picked the movie, the restaurant, the next CD to listen to on family vacation. She certainly shared with us those moments, but she took pride and found joy in just taking care of the stuff nobody thinks about or wants to do or is afraid to start.

I was a shitty son. I did not understand. So when my mother had an opinion I felt it necessary to be against that. I felt trapped in the family run by her. But I was a kid. She had every right to.

She immediately really liked this song. Now while synthpop is not my thing, I can appreciate "good music" in any genre. I listened to this song less because she liked it. Now her I am listening with ears that have not heard it close to a decade. After studying and growing so much as an amateur musician (according to my definition) throughout my life (especially the past 3 years) and falling in love with music... This is a really, really good song.

My mother is always right. It breaks my heart that I was such a shitty kid. I am forever in her debt, constantly trying to repay her, all while trying to navigate this increasingly difficult life. I am tired. I am sad. And there exist so many more heartbreaking anecdotes than joyful ones. In my opinion.

This is world that we live in
I feel myself get tired
This is the world that we live in

Well maybe I was mistaken
I heard a rumor that you quit this day and age
Well maybe I was mistaken

Bless your body, bless your soul
Pray for peace and self control

I gotta believe it's worth it
Without a victory,
I'm so sanctified and free
Well maybe I'm just mistaken

Lesson learned and the wheels keep turning

This is the world that we live in
I can't take blame for two
This is the world that we live in
And maybe we'll make it through

Bless your body, bless your soul
Reel me in and cut my throat

Underneath the waterfall
Baby we're still in this

This is the world that we live in
Feel myself get tired
This is the world that we live in

I had a dream that I was falling, down
There's no next time around
A storm wastes its water on me
But my life was free

I guess it's the world that we live in
It's not too late for that
This is the world that we live in
And no, we can't go back

This is the world that we live in
I still want something real
This is the world that we live in
I know that we can heal over time

This is the world that we live in
