Built To Spill - Goin' Against Your Mind Lyrics

People think when you don't understand
What it takes to wanna be a man
I don't care much for that
I don't know why

Just a fight or just a waste of time
Hiding things that no one wants to find
I don't know much of that
I don't care why

Goin' against your mind, goin' against your mind
Goin' against your mind, goin' against your mind
Goin' against your mind, goin' against your mind
Goin' against your mind, goin' against your mind

Goin' against your mind, goin' against your mind
Goin' against your mind, goin' against your mind
Goin' against your mind, goin' against your mind
Goin' against your mind, goin' against your mind

When I was a kid I saw a light
Floating high above the trees one night
Thought it was an alien
Turned out to be just god

If you're not sure who not to believe
Who has better reasons to deceive?
They're really good at that
That's all they do

Goin' against your mind, goin' against your mind
Goin' against your mind, goin' against your mind
Goin' against your mind, goin' against your mind
Goin' against your mind, goin' against your mind

Goin' against your mind, goin' against your mind
Goin' against your mind, goin' against your mind
Goin' against your mind, goin' against your mind
Goin' against your mind, goin' against your mind

And we won't share
No, we won't share
And we won't share
No, we won't share

    There's already Marquee Moon, though.

    Tyler Moore

    And before Marquee Moon was the Velvet Underground, though. And before them was something vaguely similar. And you could keep going. So sad you try this hard to be pretentious.


    @Tyler Moore Slow down with your obscure references, Tyler!

    Explain to the folks back home who The Velvet Underground are.

    And which song of theirs that Television played note-for-note, but at twice the speed.

  2. dave harry

    Still listening in 2020 👇🏻



  4. Y4123

    BTS is a very good band. But eeegggaaddds. His fake modesty and arrogant speach when it comes to other bands is disappointing. I think he needs to remember he was in the in the Halo Benders. OUCH!!!!
