Walk Off

This song is by The National and appears on the album High Violet (2010).

Every house on the street will get on their feet
Carry the sleepers out into the weather
From the violet cities
The violet cities

They'll turn on their lights and open their eyes
Drop to their knees and they'll drink from the river
In the violet cities
The violet cities

On and on, they'll lead us on and
On and on, they'll lead us on
We'll all get high and walk off
Into the country, ridiculous country
Where the blue sky will smother us
Believe me, believe me, believe me
The blue sky will smother us

They'll open their doors and they'll sing to the sun
We don't know anymore how to glitter, we come
From the violet cities
The violet cities

If we stand there and stare and everyone's come
They may never find out that we came here at all
From the violet cities
The violet cities

On and on, they'll lead us on and
On and on, they'll lead us on
We'll all get high and walk off
Into the country, ridiculous country
Where the blue sky will smother us
Believe me, believe me, believe me
The blue sky will smother us
Believe me, believe me, believe me
