Brian Eno - MGMT

Brian Eno

Congratulations
indie psychedelic Psychedelic Rock rock alternative


According to the Brian Eno Songfacts, this ode to legendary producer Brian Eno was one of several tracks recorded in MGMT's Andrew VanWyngarden's Brooklyn apartment. He told Spin Magazine: "It started with just us messing around; we never took it seriously as a song. Then on the second day we had the home studio working. At 1:30 A.M. we did a live take and that's what ended up being the foundation for the song."


MGMT are an electropop band which formed in 2002 in Middletown, Connecticut, United States. The band consists of Andrew VanWyngarden (lead vocals, multiple instruments) and Ben Goldwasser (multiple instruments, vocals). The duo was signed to Columbia Records in 2006 and have since released four albums: "Oracular Spectacular" (2007), "Congratulations" (2010), "MGMT" (2013) and "Little Dark Age" (2018). They are best known for their 2008 singles "Time to Pretend", "Electric Feel" and "Kids", all of which were worldwide hits. Show more ...

Brian Eno - MGMT

So tired
Soul searching
I followed sounds to a cathedral
Imagine my surprise to find that they were produced by Brian Eno

Past the gates
Quite stark
The roses trimmed and the windows dark
I see the the walls through a limestone crack
Not red not blue not yellow but black
And all the spaces left for you
If the sky was synthesized you'd probably know

He taught me many things
The wisdom of o bleak stratagems
The prophet of a sapphire soul
Presented through creative freedom
And everything I say is true
Cuz if I was telling lies it'd probably show

I can tell that he's kinda smiling
But what does he know?
We're always one step behind him, he's Brian Eno
Brian Eno

When I was stuck he'd make me memorize elaborate curses
Tinctures and formulas to ditch the chori and flip the verses
My whole foundation came unglued
When I tried to humanize by ambient light
Clipping swords in metaphors yeah but what does he know?
We're always one step behind him he's Brian Eno
Brian Eno!

He promised pretty worlds and all the silence I could dream of
Brian Peter George St. John Le Baptiste de la Salle Eno
Well all alone by the oldest stone where the shade trees grow
(What does he know)
The creature by the water feature with a ghostly glow
(Brian Eno)
Yeah he's making sure that time's preserved well we reap that we sow
(What does he know)
We're always one step behind him he's Brian Eno
Brian Eno
Yeah I can tell that he's doing well yeah
But what does he know
I'm always one step behind him, he's Brian Eno
(Brian Eno)
Yeah dip swords in metaphors yeah but what does he know?
(What does he know)
I've never seen him plant a forest, cause I don't know Brian Eno
I can tell that he's trying to smile, but what does he know
(What does he know)
I'll always be a step behind him Brian Eno
(Brian Eno)
He's making sure that time is preserved well we reap what we sow
(What does he know)
I'm always one step behind him, cause I don't know Brian Eno
