Santigold – Keepers

Loving her new album!

LYRICS:

I walk down, smoking miles
Like we don’t know where we’ve been
That’s it, bored, just state your case
You’re just as wrong as you were then

Want to move all your hands up
Say I don’t make no rules,
No one even knows I’m here
Now it’s all you to man up
You see no way to hang on what you say

We’re the keepers, while we sleep in America
Our house is burning down, our house is burning down
We’re the keepers, while we sleep in America
Our house is burning down, our house is burning down
[?] our house is burning down

Ask me why, dream that you [?] dangerous thing
Watch out for the snakes ride past
And turn around and it sucks you in
[?] into the bottom up
The illusion that you’re in
[?] without will do you win

We’re the keepers, while we sleep in America
Our house is burning down, our house is burning down
We’re the keepers, while we sleep in America
Our house is burning down, our house is burning down
[?] our house is burning down

And all the things I’ve done, [?] my fear
And all the things I’ve done, [?] my fear
And still [?] my heart can rust
We are gone, we are gone
On our [?] we are all done

We’re the keepers, while we sleep in America
Our house is burning down, our house is burning down
We’re the keepers, while we sleep in America
Our house is burning down, our house is burning down
[?] our house is burning down

Santigold – The Keepers (The Knocks Remix)

Here’s a lovely remix by The Knocks. I can imagine people getting crazy on the dance floor when I hear this. Great job from the New York based duo, Ben “B-Roc” Ruttner and James “Jpatt” Patterson.
