Riff: The Internet – “Pupil The Patience”

Sep 24, 2013

I’m sorry that I went away/Wipe the smile from your face/Ill be back to save the day/Don’t you cry

from Pupil The Patience lyrics by The Internet

Channeling a little Earth, Wind, and Fire into the groove, Syd laments over the strain that success can have on a relationship. The upbeat rhythm almost suggests a defiance towards being held down, which for a rising star like The Internet makes perfect sense; [LISTEN].
