Live on SNL 3/5/11
See who wrote what on Angles: http://thestrokesnews.com/answering-w...
Watch the drum cover: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4f7KBO...
Animals on TV singing about some pain that they once felt
There's no one I disapprove of more or root for more than myself
I wanted to pretend that it was better, better, better on the phone
I didn't wanna tell you I was jealous, jealous, jealous and alone
So we talk about ourselves in hell
To forget the love we never felt
All the old jokes that work(ed) so well
Universal truth was a moment's lie
Don't try to stop us
Don't try to stop us,
Don't try to stop us
Get out of the way....
Got to get to climb your tree in the light of the living ghost I see
She sees her father in that old man's eyes while secretly he stares at her thighs
Animals on TV singing about some pain they felt at some point
I wanted to tell I was jealous, jealous, jealous but what's the point(lyrics from website)
I wanted to tell you am i better, better, better but whats the point(what Julian sings here)
As I watch the velvet drapes appear
And the door was closed for forty years
As we hide what we don't wanna hear
As we hide what's really in our ears
He is coming from a part of hell
Where lightning blue eyes don't go down well
He can tell that we're oblivious
It's addiction of routine as well
Making fools out of the best of us
Making robots of the rest of us
Innocence itself in America today
Is a crime, just like cornel west might say
Don't try to stop us
Don't try to stop us
Don't try to stop me
Get out of the (our) way

Lyrics are from jules' website. I know they are different from what he sings here but maybe he got the lyrics mixed up in this video? i don't know
