Artist/Band: The National
Lyrics for Song: Karen
Lyrics for Album: Alligator [2005]



Karen, I'm not taking sides

I don't think I'll ever do that again

I'll end up winning and I won't know why

I'm really trying to shine here, I'm really trying

You're changing clothes and closing windows on me all the time



Well, whatever you do, listen, you better wait for me

No, I wouldn't go out alone into America

Whatever you do

Listen, you better wait for me

No, I wouldn't go out alone



Karen, we should call your father, maybe it's just a phase

He'll know the trick to get a wayward soul to change his ways

It's a common fetish for a doting man

to ballerina on the coffee table cock in hand



Well, whatever you do

Listen, you better wait for me

No, I wouldn't go out alone into America

Whatever you do

Listen, you better wait for me

No, I wouldn't go out alone



Without warm water in my head

All I see is black and white and red

I feel mechanical and thin

Hear me play my violin again

I'm living in the target's shoes

All I see is black and white and blue.

Idle, idle, idle, idle, protect the nest

Protect the title



Karen, put me in a chair, fuck me and make me a drink

I've lost direction, and I'm past my peak

I'm telling you this isn't me

No, this isn't me

Karen, believe me, you just haven't seen my good side yet



Well, whatever you do

Listen. you better wait for me

No, I wouldn't go out alone into America

Whatever you do

Listen, you better wait for me

No, I wouldn't go out alone



Without warm water in my head

All I see is black and white and red

I feel mechanical and thin

Hear me play my violin again

I'm living in the target's shoes

All I see is black and white and blue

Idle, idle, idle, idle, protect the nest

Protect the title



I must be me, I'm in my head

Black birds are circling my bed

I must be me, I must be me

Black feathers are falling on my feet

Idle, idle, idle, idle, protect the nest

Protect the title

[repeat]
