As ever, Matty Healy has knocked it out the park when it comes to killer lyrics
The 1975 returned today (Nov 30) with their much-anticipated third album A Brief Inquiry Into Online Relationships, the first instalment of their two albums being released in the ‘Music For Cars’ era (Notes On A Conditional Form will follow later next year).
As ever, Matty Healy has knocked it out the park when it comes to killer lyrics (personal favourite so far is “The smell of your hair reminds me of her feet“) and so we’ve gather a few of our favourites that will make for the perfect Instagram caption.
Give Yourself A Try
You learn a couple things when you get to my age
When your vinyl and your coffee collection is a sign of the times
Won’t you give yourself a try?
Like context in a modern debate, I just took it out
Getting STDs at 27 really isn’t the vibe
I was 25 and afraid to go outside
You wet my eyes but I don’t mind it
I tell you lies but it’s only sometimes
But I only called her one time. Maybe it was two times?
How To Draw/Petrichor
What if you die with all of the colours?
Take something and then make it brand new
Love yourself like someone you love, one you love
Don’t let the internet ruin your time
They can take anything as long as it’s true
Love It If We Made It
Saying controversial things just for the hell of it
Oh, fuck your feelings
Yes, I’d love it if we made it
Poison me, daddy
Rest in peace Lil Peep
Jesus save us
Excited to be indicted
Be My Mistake
Be my mistake then turn out the light
I don’t want to hug, I just want to sleep
The smell of your hair reminds me of her feet
I shouldn’t have called ’cause we shouldn’t speak
You do make me hard but she makes me weak
Sincerity Is Scary
You try and mask your pain in the most postmodern way
Why can’t we be friends, when we are lovers?
It always ends with us hating each other
Instead of calling me out, you should be pulling me in
And why would you believe you could control how you’re perceived when at your best you’re intermediately versed in your own feelings?
I Like America & America Likes Me
I’m scared of dying
My skin is fire, so desired
Believe, and say something
When you bleed say so we know
I’m a designer, unite pariahs
Kids don’t want rifles, they want Supreme
The Man Who Married A Robot / Love Theme
The internet, as you know, was his friend — you could say, his best friend.
Internet, do you love me?
When the man got sad he would get him cooked animals and show him the people having sex again
Anything you say to me will stay strictly between you and the internet
Inside Your Mind
I’ve been learning the way that you talk
Maybe you are dreaming you’re in love with me
I’ve had dreams where there’s blood on you
It’s Not Living (If It’s Not With You)
And all I do is sit and think about you
It’s not living if it’s not with you
I know you think you’re sly but you need some imagination
Collapse my veins
All I do is sit and drink without you
I can stage a situation, but I just can’t eat
Distract my brain from the terrible news
Surrounded By Heads & Bodies
A post-traumatic mess
It hurts to be awake
I see her in my sleep
I fight crime online sometimes
I’m fine if you are fine
When people said that it was raining all the time I see sunshine ’cause I know that you are mine
I Couldn’t Be More In Love
At the best of times I’m lonely in my mind
Why would I rely on the things that I did right?
I could have been a great line, I could have been a sign
I’d give you all the years of my life
I Always Want To Die (Sometimes)
Your memories are sceneries for things you said but never really meant
You win, you lose, you sing the blues, there’s no point in buying concrete shoes
If you can’t survive; just try
