Weekly Tunes EP18 - Social Cues - Cage the Elephant

Dear readers, we are sorry for the delay in the release of our weekly series. But not to worry! We are back this week with a new song called "Social Cues" by Cage the Elephant. The song has a funkier beat, and is about the social frame that are set by people on to the band. It is about how people cannot cannot relate to the struggles of celebrities and brush of their troubles by simply saying, "At least you're on the radio." 

Lyrics:
I think it's strange when people say
You're the next big thing, you'll never fade
The slightest touch and first to fall
Sleight of the hand, modern goal
Starry-eyed child left behind
Choose your favorite vice
I don't have the strength to play nice
Hide me in the back room
Tell me when it's over
Don't know if I can play this bar much longer
I'll be in the back room
Tell me when it's over
Don't know if I can play this bar much longer
I don't know if it is right to live this way, yeah
I'll be in the back room
Tell me when it's over
People always say, "Man, at least you're on the radio"
At least you're on the radio
At least you're on the radio
At least you're on the radio
Close your eyes, don't be afraid
Take some of these, they'll ease the pain
Live fast, die young, pay the price
The best die young, immortalized
Starry-eyed children left behind
To choose their favorite vice
I don't have the strength to think twice
Hide me in the back room
Tell me when it's over
Don't know if I can play this bar much longer
I'll be in the back room
Tell me when it's over
Don't know if I can play this bar much longer
I don't know if it is right to live this way, yeah
I'll be in the back room
Tell me when it's over
People always say, "Man, at least you're on the radio"
At least you're on the radio
At least you're on the radio
Hide me in the back room
Tell me when it's over
Don't know if I can play this bar much longer
I'll be in the back room
Tell me when it's over
Don't know if I can play this bar much longer
I don't know if it is right to live this way, yeah
I'll be in the back room
Tell me when it's over
People always say, "Man, at least you're on the radio"
At least you're on the radio
