Little faith, follow me
I set a fire in a blackberry field
Make us laugh or nothing will
I set a fire just to see what it kills

Now we're stuck in New York and the rain's coming down
I don't feel like we'll go anywhere
Stuck in New York and the rain's coming down
Still in line for the vanity fair

Leave our red southern souls
Head for the coast
Leave our red southern souls
Everything goes

All our lonely kicks are getting harder to find
We'll play nuns versus priests until somebody cries
All our lonely kicks, they'll make us saintly and thin
We'll play nuns versus priests until somebody wins

Awesome prince, get your sleep
Lose your heart in history
Make us laugh or nothing will
I set a fire just to see what it kills

Don't be bitter, Anna, I know how you think
You're waiting for Radio City to sink
You'll find commiseration in everyone's eyes
The storm will suck the pretty girls into the sky

All our lonely kicks are getting harder to find
We'll play nuns versus priests until somebody cries
All our lonely kicks, they'll make us saintly and thin
We'll play nuns versus priests until somebody wins

Leave our red southern souls
Head for the coast
Leave our red southern souls
Everything goes

Shut up, the National, yer music is stupid.

Ha just noticed I haven't badmouthed this song in 2 years. 
 
Amen to that. I hate the "I can't sing so I grunt and mumble" style..

Not only are they lugubrious, but every song has exactly the same chord and rhythm structure. One of their songs is boring enough.

Ditto.  I've only heard what has been played on RP, but what I've heard so far makes me really wonder why anybody listens to them at all.
 Love this band but this isn't one of their finest.  Giving it a 6. 
The perfect music for working!
so dull and lifeless.
I've heard fog horns with greater range.

I'm thinking Michael Gira from SWANS

The Divine Comedy, as in Neil Hannon?! Sounding like The National?! Huh?

lol, 1 year and 2 days ago was the last time I heard this song, and I still feel the same way.

Sweet! Good to see quite a few from this record getting on RP.
Yet another winner from this album.
I don't know what to say. No comments to reply to.
