Riff: The Strokes – “All The Time”

Feb 13, 2013

You’re livin’ a lie/You’re livin’ a lie/You’re livin’ too fast/You got to fight for the path/You never ask why/You never ask why/You’re livin’ a lie/Baby, you’re flying too high

from All The Time lyrics by The Strokes

Don’t think the world ever thought we’d hear Julian Casablancas preach a slower lifestyle. Then again a lot of us felt the same way about the gleaming falsetto American Dream doldrums of other fifth album single pillar, “One Way Trigger.” Y’all ain’t middle-aged yet, Strokes, thrash out of it.
