“Conversation 16” by the National

“I was afraid, I’d eat your brains. ‘Cause I’m evil.”

I think the kids are in trouble Do not know what all the troubles are for
Give them ice for their fevers

Now we’ll leave the silver city ’cause all the silver girls
Gave us black dreams
Leave the silver city ’cause all the silver girls
Everything means everything

It’s a Hollywood summer
You’ll never believe the shitty thoughts I think
Meet our friends out for dinner

We belong in a movie

We should swim in a fountain
Do not want to disappoint anyone

Now we’ll leave the silver city ’cause all the silver girls
Gave us black dreams
Leave the silver city to all the silver girls

I’m a confident liar
Have my head in the oven so you know where I’ll be
I’ll try to be more romantic
I want to believe in everything you believe
I was less than amazing
Do not know what all the troubles are for
Fall asleep in your branches

Now we’ll leave the silver city ’cause all the silver girls
Gave us black dreams
Leave the silver city to all the silver girls
Everything means everything

I was afraid I’d eat your brains

‘Cause I’m evil, ‘Cause I’m evil

CONVERSATION 16…A MODERN ZOMBIE TALE.

CPE

I'm routinely overestimated.
