Indistinct Notion Of Cool

This song is by John Cale and appears on the album Walking on Locusts (1996).

The latest development in the Land of Nod
Says the animals got the best of us all
Lost in the miles of the 20th century
Cocktail parties and things

If we could work it out (If we could work it out)
We'd have done it by now
If we could work it out (If we could have it done)
Don't you think we'd have it done

The indistinct notion of cool
Was the laughter I heard coming through your door (Ooh, through your door)
That's all that's left of the days we spent
Trying to break on through

I'd like things to be easy (easy)
To be the best they can (best they can)
But you've turned me into jelly
And used me like a soupcan

If we could work it out (If we could work it out)
We'd have done it by now
If we could work it out (We left it where it was)
We'd have left it where it was

With you still riding bareback (Ooh, ooh)
And me driving my Dodge
You skipping a heartbeat (Ooh, ooh)
And me not paying attention
Something was wrong right then
You weren't seeing the difference
You're still running scared

We won't be watching the sunset
It took too much time to learn
You're cool (Cool, ooh-ooh)
In your indistinct notion (Indistinct notion)
Too cool (Cool, ooh-ooh)
In your indistinct notion (Indistinct notion)
You're cool (Cool, ooh-ooh)
In your indistinct notion (Indistinct notion
