​Colosseums

This song is by The New Pornographers and appears on the album Whiteout Conditions (2017).

Colosseums, colosseums of the mind
An ancient con, the shadow of a song
Exhibitions, international in size
I close my eyes, I can see the lion

Colosseums, colosseums of the mind
Right on time, celebration in the ruin
Elation is moving in a wave
I avert my gaze, but still I see the lions

Say it like a Sooth Sayer
On repeat for days
Don't listen when the fool says
You can't fool your way
You can't fool your way

Colosseums, colosseums of the mind
A scalper's price, built into the design
Jubilations, laughing out the place
Look in my face, you can see the lion

Say it like a Sooth Sayer
It will keep for days
Don't listen when the fool says
You can't fool your way
You can't fool your way

Say it like a Sooth Sayer
On repeat for days
Don't listen when the fool says
You can't fool your way

Say it like a Sooth Sayer
It will keep for days
Don't listen when the fool says
You can't fool your way
You can't fool your way (fool your way x8)
