The 1975 – Roadkill Lyrics


[Verse 1]

Well, I touch down and run to my connection

Man in the gift shop called me a fag

I feel up my tucked-up erection

There’s a pressure all over my head

And I know this is how I get paid, but

It’s not really how I wanna get laid, so

Hundred forty when I last got weighed

And I’m gonna lose more by Saturday

[Chorus]

And they’re playing your song on the radio station

Mugging me off all across the nation

If you don’t eat, then you’ll never grow

I should’ve learnt that quite a while ago

I know it gets hard sometimes

Making out with people that you don’t like

I know you don’t feel alright

But you look just fine to me

[Verse 2]

Well, I pissed myself on a Texan intersection

With George spilling things all over his bag

And I took shit for being quiet during the election

And maybe that’s fair, but I’m a busy guy

I get stoned and go where I get paid, but

It’s not really how babies get made, so

I’ll take a minute when I think I won’t die from stopping

Oh, I’m just a busy guy

[Chorus]

And they’re playing your song on the radio station

Mugging me off all across the nation

If you don’t shoot, then you’ll never know

You should’ve learnt that quite a while ago

I know it gets hard sometimes

Taking out your shit on the ones you like

You know, I didn’t feel alright

Until you spoke to me

[Bridge]

You, I’ve been waiting for you

My whole life, waiting for you

I’ve been waiting for you

[Outro]

Well, I’m gonna get a gun but it’s for my protection

Or maybe I’ll get myself a fun knife
