lyrics

I tried to be a hipster
But they said I weighed too much
Now I’m thirtysomething
Overweight and out of touch

The kids that run the hall
Don’t talk to me at all
The kids that run the hall are so tall

I tried to be a salesman
But I fell asleep on the job
While all my peers surpassed me
By shaking hands and knocking on doors

The kids that run the hall
Don’t bother me at all
The kids that run the hall are so tall

So Father John Misty, don’t get me wrong
I’m into your songs
Should I just grow a beard
Change my name and start speaking in tongues?

The kids that run the hall
Don’t talk to me at all
The kids that run the hall are so tall

<Instrumental Verse>

The kids that run the hall
Don’t bother me at all
The kids that run the hall are so tall

So Father John Misty, don’t get me wrong
I’m into your songs
Should I just grow a beard
Change my name and start speaking in tongues?

The kids that run the hall
Don’t talk to me at all
The kids that run the hall are so tall

I tried to be a hipster
But they said I weighed too much
Now I’m thirtysomething
Overweight and out of touch

Grief Thief San Francisco, California

Grief Thief's disparate influences span decades and genres. From the godfather of grunge Neil Young and the proto-punk genius of the Velvet Underground to the the angular CBGB darlings Television, it’s hard to put a label on Grief Thief’s instantly familiar yet utterly distinct sound. Their hope is you’ll be too caught up in the tunes to give it much thought. ... more
