Please Note: Official lyrics to “Wrong” and all songs by The Airborne Toxic Event are now available in our TATE Lyrics collection.

One of the many highlights of The Airborne Toxic Event’s Fillmore residency was the debut of a new song titled “Wrong,” the lead track off the band’s upcoming fourth album. Played all three nights, the synth-heavy number is already well on its way to becoming a fan favorite, at least among those who were in attendance in San Francisco.

Wrong – lyrics by Mikel Jollett

All my young life, I’ve been trying to say just one thing right. Now we’ve come to the day. You’re here in my arms, I don’t know what to say.

I believe I was wrong, probably most of my life. Or I’m just hearing it wrong. I’m just watching the fire-light.

I see the look in your eyes, “Am I trying too hard? Am I doing this right?” So I fall down to my knees. I’m not easy to soothe; I’m never easy to please.

I believe I was wrong, probably most of my life. Or I’m just hearing it wrong. I’m just watching the fire-light. And I don’t care if it’s right. I know your friends are opposed. But we’ve still got tonight. We’ll just keep our eyes closed.

  3. If you’re in the front row, it’s often possible to lean over and take a photo of the ones they place on the stage. After the show, beg the crew. They usually give them all out, but there’s usually no shortage of fans who want them. Thanks!
