If only you'd have known me before the accident
For with that grand collision came a grave consequence
Receptors overloaded, they burst and disconnect
'Til there was little feeling please work with what is left

Oh I need not be flattered that you've never been here before
So there's no need to mention that you've no firsts anymore
But if you let me be your skyline I'll let you be the wave
That reduces me to rubble that looked safe from far away

I don't know why, I don't know why
I return to the scenes of these crimes
Where the hedgerows slowly wind
Through the ghosts of Beverly Drive
I don't know why, I don't know why
I don't know what I expect to find
Where all the news is second hand
And everything just goes on as planned

You wanna teach but not be taught
And I wanna sell but not be bought
So let us not be lonesome
So let us not be lonesome
Lost in between our needs and wants
Our needs and wants

I don't know why, I don't know why
I return to the scenes of these crimes
Where the hedgerows slowly wind
Through the ghosts of Beverly Drive
I don't know why, I don't know why
I don't know what I expect to find
Where all the news is second hand
And everything just goes on as planned

I don't know why, I don't know why
I don't know why, I don't know why
I don't know why, I don't know why
I don't know why, I don't know why

Wrong. I needn't explain but really, ever heard of "Google"?
 

Or look right!!
"The group's name comes from the song "Death Cab for Cutie," written by Neil Innes and Vivian Stanshall and performed by their group the Bonzo Dog Doo-Dah Band. It originally featured on the British television show Do Not Adjust Your Set (series 1 episode 7), as well as in The Beatles' movie Magical Mystery Tour."

Someone's going to make you pay your fare
My Pink Half Of The Drainpipe are a better band IMO.

In case you did not know, the name is a joke on the so called death of Paul McCartney.

Ho Hum {#Sleep}

Found on RP. More I hear more I like. 
Favorite line in this: "I wanna sell and not be bought..."

Don't we all? 
Too bad these guys never get any play here.

the lyrics aren't exactly meaningful, but it's just got this catchy rhythm to it. I hate it when something gets stuck in my head and this one's gotten stuck. dangnabit.
Great new songs and album! Just saw them in Santa Barbara last weekend. Fantastic show, at an unbeatable venue. Good times and good stuff.
Yay!  New Death Cab! {#Guitarist}
Overplayed. Or I'm tuning into RP at the wrong times. Or too much in general. 
yep. Cure and also new Order. Very much 80ies. Not too Bad.

DCFC Does it again!
Love it!
1st! Always good to be first in line {#Shifty} and always good to hear brand new music. There is something magical about hearing music for the first time. . . even if it is not the greatest. . . which this track falls into. 

I am sure Death Cab fans will love it, but it falls a bit short for me.
