“I Think Ur a Contra”

8 January 2011

Skip to 1:02 in the video below, unless you want to hear Ezra Koenig talk for a while.

I had a feeling once
that you and I
could tell each other everything
for two months.

But even with our oath,
with truth on our side,
when you turn away from me,
it’s not right.

I think you’re a contra. (4x)

My revolution thoughts,
your little arrows of desire:
I want to trace them to the source
and the wire.

But it’s not useful now,
since we’ve both made up our minds.
You’re going to watch out for yourself,
and so will I.

I think you’re a contra,
and I think that you lied.
Don’t call me a contra
till you’ve tried.

You wanted good schools and friends with pools:
you’re not a contra.
You wanted rock and roll, complete control–
well, I don’t know.

“Never pick sides,
Never choose between two.”
Well, I just wanted you,
I just wanted you.

You said, “Never pick sides
Never choose between two.”
Well, I just wanted you,
I just wanted you.

I think you’re a contra,
and I think that you lied.
Don’t call me a contra,
till you’ve tried.
