The Airborne Toxic Event Lyrics: Tokyo Radio
From The Album All At Once (Deluxe) (2011)
Published by Primary Wave Airborne (ASCAP)
Lyrics by Mikel Jollett
All the radio waves that crowd the sky
The building, trees and the power lines
I’m ten thousand miles away from home.
And the dj shakes me in my seat
Oh I’m sorry I haven’t slept in weeks
It’s a waking dream at best
I could use a little less.
So I finish the song, and the dj sings
And I stare at the ground and I tune my strings
We’ve got three days ‘til the show
I’ve got nowhere else to go.
All the bowing and waving so goddamn polite,
I was thinking of jumping from my window last night
I’ve got one more year to live
I’ve got nothing left to give.
Hello from Tokyo.
