Cage The Elephant – Telescope Lyrics

Telescope by Cage The Elephant
Album : Unpeeled
Released : 2017

In a far and distant galaxy
Inside my telescope I see
A pair of eyes peer back at me
He walks and talks and looks like me
Sits around inside his house
From room to room he moves about
Fills his life with pointless things
And wonders how it all turns out.

Do do do do do
Do do do do do
It’s safe to say that

I don’t think you understand!
There’s nowhere left to turn
Walls keep breaking
Time is like a leaf in the wind
Either it’s time well-spent
Or time I’ve wasted.

Don’t waste it.

Afraid of what the truth might bring
He locks his doors and never leaves
Desperately searching for signs
Too terrified to find a thing
He battens all the hatches down
And wonders why he hears no sound
Frantically searching his dreams
He wonders what it’s all about

Do do do do do
Do do do do do
It’s safe to say that

I don’t think you understand!
There’s nowhere left to turn
Walls keep breaking
Time is like a leaf in the wind
Either it’s time well-spent
Or time I’ve wasted…

Clearing my mind,
Losing my friends
Follow my fears
Do it again.
You say how do you do.
Man, how ’bout you?
Man, how ’bout you?
To be free
To be son
To be killed
To be saved
In my head, I’m alone
I’m un-dead, I’m ashamed
Just like you,
I’ve been tryin’ to escape
In my bones I feel cold.
I give thanks to the Lord
In the sea
In this street
Let me go
Let me be,
I don’t need to be here,
I’m alone
Can’t you see? Can’t you see?

I don’t think you understand!
There’s nowhere left to turn
Walls keep breaking
Time is like a leaf in the wind
Either it’s time well-spent
Or time I’ve wasted…

Don’t waste it.
