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, he's odd but he's got a lot of vision
And his buck teeth, cockeyed smile
Can't stop this invertebrate on a mission
He's 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 and
Save all of your kin in the ocean
Stay your ground, don't be discouraged
Don't let em turn, our brains into porridge

You're odd but you've got a lot of vision
Your buck teeth, stalwart heart
Can't stop this invertebrate on a mission
He's in charge

But it's a long hard fight
The corner turns
And it's always another mile

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