Portugal. The Man – Grim Generation Lyrics

Portugal. The Man Grim Generation Lyrics

One, two, three

Dream killer
Don’t be naïve, there’s a darkness deep in the stream
Smile and wave as it floats on by
Or dive on in and enjoy the ride (Let me come in)

There’s a stranger at my door (Knocking)
A toy soldier coming home from war
Now I adore (Darkness)
And at the darkest

I was born (I was born bittersweet)
So bittersweet (I was born bittersweet)
This grim generation (Ooh)
Got a hold on me (Ah)
This grim generation (Ooh)
Got a hold on me

Television’s on, paint it black
See the bobber going down, baby, reel it in
Got a monkey on my back, but I’m cool with that
We’re right back where we started
And daddy’s coming back, let’s get started, hey

There’s a stranger at my door (Knocking)
A toy soldier coming home from war
Now I adore (Darkness)
Like it’s all never been done before
At my door (Knocking)
Like it’s all never been done before
At my door (Knocking)

And I was born (I was born)
So bittersweet (So bittersweet)
This grim generation (Ooh)
Got a hold on me (Ah)
This grim generation (Ooh)
And I was born (I was born bittersweet)
So bittersweet (I was born bittersweet)
This grim generation (Ooh)
Got a hold on me (Ah)
This grim generation (Ooh)
Gotta let it be

When I was born, I came to be
When I was born, I came to be
When I was born, I came to be
I came to be

And I was born
So bittersweet
This grim generation
Got a hold on me
It’s got a hold on me
