They'll Soon Discover Lyrics

by The Shins

When you were young and wise
Scratching your letters in the sand
And your imagination led you
All around by the hand, la la la

Did you ever wonder
What dizzy adventures there might be?
Unfolding in the currents under the waves
At the bottom of the sea

Well, hes odd but hes got a lot of vision
And his buck teeth, cockeyed smile
Cant stop this invertebrate on a mission
Hes in charge

A sinister design
A wild goose chase for a crown
With your eyes aligned
Before they tear apart your town

If you wanna win
Save all of your kin in the ocean
Stay your ground, dont be discouraged
Dont let em turn, our brains into porridge

Your odd but youve got a lot of vision
Your buck teeth, stalwart heart
Cant stop this invertebrate on a mission
Hes in charge

But its a long hard fight
The corner turns
And its always another mile

People think day and night
They think they got your number
But theyll soon discover
