Rock Me Now
Artist: Metric
Album: Grow Up And Blow Away

Lyrics

The town where she was born, like the town where I was born
Was built by white settlers seeking gold and other treasures
Like me she feels uncomfortable in the clothing of her ancestors
It's not easy, she would say, ripping her fingers into the ashtray
It's not easy to erase your blood

Rock me now
(Sing with me)
In the arms of cobwebs
Roll me out
In the arms of cobwebs

Once she found a man to treasure and together
They planted flowers of warning, fearing frost
Late on shallow evenings while their enemies slept
They hammered the soil asking for answers in green
His value declined when he offered his name
Why did he offer?

His value declined (Ah ah-ah-ah, ah ah-ah-ah, ah ah-ah-ah, ah ah-ah-ah)
When he offered his name
His value declined (Ah ah-ah-ah, ah ah-ah-ah, ah ah-ah-ah, ah ah-ah-ah)
When he offered his name

His value declined (Ah ah-ah-ah, ah ah-ah-ah, ah ah-ah-ah, ah ah-ah-ah)
When he offered his name
His value declined (Ah ah-ah-ah, ah ah-ah-ah, ah ah-ah-ah, ah ah-ah-ah)
When he offered his name

When she was seven years old she saw a man get shot, but
No one came for a long time because
It happened in a remote parking lot in Las Vegas
And she was waiting for her mom to come back
From working the black-jack table at the Circus-Circus casino, and
That night her mom said that the two of them and the now-dead guy
Were the only three people who ever really lived in Las Vegas
Everybody else just arrived, ate their complementary shrimp cocktail
And left

Rock me now
In the arms of cobwebs
(It's a one room city, yeah)
(It's a one room city, yeah)
(So can you roll me) Roll me out
In the arms of cobwebs
(It's a one room city, yeah)
(It's a one room city, yeah)
His value declined (Ah ah-ah-ah, ah ah-ah-ah, ah ah-ah-ah, ah ah-ah-ah)
When he offered his name
You rent a one room city here
It's a one room city here
The wall to wall to wall to wall
Go street to street to street
