Baby wants a new spin
Baby wants a broken heart
Hear you found the lynchpin
To keep it all from falling apart

But you keep on rolling
Yes you keep on rolling
Keep on rolling
You keep on rolling

Better find a way
Better kick it from your big brown eyes
I hear it tightens up
When you fall at the fifteenth try

Like a ship at ocean
Like a ship at ocean
Like a ship at ocean
Like a ship at sea

You spit thick and you cross your heart
But the culvert's all run dry
From keeping shotgun-shy
All arise! Just be mine tonight

So the dollar shop shoppers
Broke the lock and they knocked you down
Better call the coppers
If you need someone to push you around

But you keep on stealing
You keep on stealing
Yes, you keep on stealing
Till there's nothing left to steal

You spit thick and you cross your heart
But the culvert's all run dry
From keeping shotgun-shy
All arise! Just be mine tonight

I know, right? A substandard offering from an otherwise great band. If their body of work was not so impressive perhaps this song would seem less...cringy.


 
Odd. The only good song I have heard from these guys.
All of you grumpies who don't like these guys can go.......just do this: Watch them LIVE, then see if you feel the same way. Long Live The Decemberists!

That was the exact sentence I was going to use. Anyhoo I switched over to LRC.

Man, do I hate these guys. All go away!

This pseudo Cajun/country is way worse than their pseudo-Brit Renaissance/folk/rock, which is at least tolerable.

No, but their genre of folk-rock, or Nu-nu-folk, will fall out of fashion in a year or two I'm sure, and all the bands in it will return to relative obscurity. I can live with this lot, sort of, but bands like Mumford & Sons and Fleet Foxes (coming on after this number) deserve to return to playing tiny clubs in the hicks, IMO.

 
Yes, they'll fall out of fashion, only to be replaced in a few years by Nu-nu-nu-folk types. There is nothing new under the sun. Let's just hope that disco carp is well and truly dead.

I guess they haven't gone away - even though you wrote the very same sentiment in the comments for no less than 13 of their songs: the exorcism didn't take.  I don't particularly like a lot of the material from this band much either, but they don't irritate me as much as they apparently do other folks here.

Not even played through and already rated. Somebody likes their Decemberists! Remembering Bill's famous warning to Excelsior about rating 1s before songs were played, I'm wondering...
twern't me, for sure

 

I assure you it wasn't me, the rating is too high at 5 as it is! I did my part by chipping in my requisite 1 for this band.{#Dance}
I couldn't make it to the end of this song.  I'm sitting here stunned because after a few years of regular listening, this is the first time that I've ever had to kill a song on Radio Paradise.  Ewwww. (shivers)

there's too much in the mix to suit me...not my style, which is pretty open
Why?

Just say no!
