LCD Soundsystem - Emotional Haircut Lyrics

I caught your eye when I stepped outside with my emotional haircut
It seems that I've been misunderstood

The look of grave concern in your eyes and your surprise at my emotional haircut
It's better to me
It's much better than it used to be

'Cause I got eyes going every which way
I got eyes all over the place
And I got tired of the hotel room and the TV

You wish that you'd been told about whatever has led to this emotional haircut
It ain't a disease
It's just hard to do whatever you please

And treat yourself tonight
To a little love life

Now we all get ideas and then shut-shut 'em down with an emotional haircut
No I ain't Dionysian, man

Oh no buddy, no need to be concerned with this emotional haircut
It's part of the game
Yeah man, it's just part of the feat

So let's raise a glass to the bodies in here
Oh, raise a glass to the bodies in here
We're gonna toast till the bodies all soak up the bass

Man, you're in love with the bodies in here and your emotional haircut
Oh just get on the street
Fuck the shuffle, put your shit on repeat

You've got numbers on your phone of the dead that you can't delete
And you got life-affirming moments in your past that you can't repeat
Yeah you've numbers on your phone of your dead that you cannot delete
And you're losing all your skin in the middle when you just can't sleep
I know you can't calm down

Out of your windows and onto the streets
Out of your windows
Out of it
Out to

Do you know what it does?
It puts me up on my feet
It puts me on the floor
But can you hear the heartbeat
Can you hear the heartbeat
Just listen to the heartbeat
But can you hear the heartbeat
Listen to it now
Listen to it now
Listen to it now
Listen to it now
Listen to it now
Listen to it now
Listen to it now
Listen; it's calming down

  11. Susana P.

  12. Cutedu

    i heard this song on tv and heard "emotional haircut" so I decided to search for it as a joke. turns out it is really the lyrics lmao who made these, doesnt make sense to me. And that band name? did they take it from a dvd player?

  13. Celebmacil

    Kind of makes me think of something by The Screaming Blue Messiahs or something...

  14. Stephanie Agnew

    I would like to be known as the woman who married this song

    Eric Taylor

    Stephanie Agnew LCD Soundsystem... Good band, but are copycat of the band "The sound" from 80s, 90s, early 2000. Listen to the song. "I can't escape myself" "The Sound".

  15. Andrew Heasman

    Had a haircut on the strength of this top song and I couldn't stop crying when they'd finished 👍

  16. ZER0TV

    I can hear a little bit of Viet Cong in this.. it really could be the case

  17. Sugar Magnolia

    Dont do it! Lol

  18. borcz100

    I am an old man, and I can not get beyond this song!

  19. Duke de PallMall

    Brilliant - and heart-warming to post-punk veterans. From Reagan to Trump, soundtrack of a broken America. Memories of Pylon, Urban Verbs etc. and Gang of Four back in Britain.


    Yes. Gang of Four, especially the front end.

  20. Name Groonan

    Over The Wall By The Bunnymen

    End Less

    Spare us the cutter.

    I usually hate posting stuff like this given that numerous comparisons between songs seem to be made entirely to impose one's taste rather than noting objective similarities. Still, the lead guitar on this track seems to heavily resemble Levine's on Public Image Ltd.'s "Death Disco". Mostly given the use of flanger and the "metallic" sound of the instrumentation - don't know if that is what they were going for on this track though its quite hard not to notice it. I don't quite understand the Joy Division comparison, certainly raw in places though lacking in the darker aesthetic and subdued production (contrast to Murphy's more rhythmic style). The drum pattern also whilst slightly similar to Atrocity Exhibition as some have pointed out operates on a much faster tempo and is somewhat more intense.

    That being said I can to some degree understand comparison's to the Ideal For A Living EP to some extent.


    Not that it's a bad thing.

    Charemaine Seet

    I would also say Levene's work on Albatross--just at the 3.15 mark of Emotional Haircut

  22. Frannie BL

    Absolutely amazing!

  23. it is aye

    Simple, it's so good....

  24. naumchomsky

    This is the way. Step inside.

  25. Bonneau Marc

    Simplement génial

  26. Tom Hofer

    No, nothing like Joy Division. Everything like Gang of Four.

    Pixel Dirt

    Drums and bass sound very Joy Division to me! but the section at 3:15 sounds kinda Siouxie...or maybe even the slightest bit Southern Death Cult? All I really know is this song is a wonderful frankensteins monster of 80s style stuff :P


    I agree, this is so much like Gang of Four

    Tom Ali

    Tom Hofer thank you

  27. Iuri Bermudes

    The cure meeting The Clash

    People who like LCD Soundsystem are cooler than people that don't like LCD Soundsystem. Both are cooler than people who don't know who LCD Soundsystem are. They just suck.

    When the barber fucks your haircut and they ask how is it, and all you can do is fake smile and say looks great. This the song that gets played.
