Wolf Parade – Forest Green Lyrics

Forest Green By Wolf Parade

Here on Forest Green
Everyone knows that the life is so serene
And what’s not to love
Under the sky and the shining stars above
Stars above

A subterranean life
I don’t get out, don’t see much daylight
I guess the air is sweet
Familial ghost, come and haunt me in my sleep
In my sleep

But I only stay here for survival
Every day is like the one before, it seems

On Forest Green the lights go dim
The awful night was creeping in again
In again
It’s something that you’ve known since birth
You understand this place is cursed
It is cursed
And it feels like home

It’s in the landlord’s smile
The satisfied gaze of the rank and file
We got the sea and the sand
We got colonial days on stolen, stolen land
Stolen land

Farewell to Forest Green
No more oasis in the Anthropocene
Only flat black glass
Under the waves and gone at, gone at last
Gone at last

Only, only stay here for survival
Always room for new arrivals on the scene

In Forest Green the lights go dim
The awful night was creeping in again
In again
It’s something that you’ve known since birth
You understand this place is cursed
It is cursed
But it feels like home
Feels like home
And I can’t stay long
