“Social Cues” by Cage the Elephant

I’ll be in the back room. Tell me when it’s over. Don’t know if I can play this part much longer.”

I think it’s strange when people say
You’re the next big thing, you’ll never fade
The slightest touch, forced to fold
Sleight of the hand, modern gold

Starry-eyed child left behind
Choose your favorite vice
I don’t have the strength to play nice

At least you’re on the radio
(At least you’re on the radio)
At least you’re on the radio

Close your eyes, don’t be afraid
Take some of these, they’ll ease the pain
Live fast, die young, pay the price
The best die young, immortalised

Starry-eyed children left behind
To choose their favorite vice
I don’t have the strength to think twice

Hide me in the backroom
Tell me when it’s over
Don’t know if I can play this part much longer
I’ll be in the backroom
Tell me when it’s over
Don’t know if I can play this part much longer

I don’t know if it is right to live this way, yeah
I’ll be in the backroom
Tell me when it’s over

At least you’re on the radio
(At least you’re on the radio)

Hide me in the backroom
Tell me when it’s over
Don’t know if I can play this part much longer
I’ll be in the backroom
Tell me when it’s over
Don’t know if I can play this part much longer

I don’t know if it is right to live this way, yeah
I’ll be in the backroom
Tell me when it’s over
People always say, “man, at least you’re on the radio”

At least you’re on the radio

CPE

I'm routinely overestimated.
