Fear
Oh, don't you feel fear
Of all the stupid things
A man could feel
While his freedom rings
He squanders the deal
What am I, blind?
What took me this long?
Can't we hit rewind
On somebody's magic bong? Oh

Come back and touch my face
Feel for fever in the night
You look into my eyes
You don't really recognize me anymore

Passed another pointless year
Foaming at the mouth
I with my hands have a rope
And you're stretching out
I know I've run out of luck
This fear is a terrible drug
If I only had sense enough
To let it give way to love

Come back and touch my face
Feel for fever in the night
You look into my eyes
You don't really recognize me anymore
No, no, no
No, no

Yes indeed, better with every listen.
Love this Shins track. The Los Lobos cover is even better. They bring their special magic sauce to it. That's the version that should be on RP's playlist.

Imagine!

(But then, I'm old... and think most of The Shins' music is at the Acceptable but Mediocre level, with only a couple exceptions.)
OH MY!  This is amazing.  First time Ive heard.  Gotta go listen again!
Giving it a 7 rating 
Want a 2nd listen  
My favorite track (and more atypical) from this album; glad to hear it on RP now.
bloody gorgeous. An 8 for this version and an 8.8 for the Los lobos version.  ☺️
will rate after one more listen...and the lyrics
I keep hearing Imagine by John Lennon.
What a nice an wonderful song! I know the Shins for about 20 Years now. Most of their discography is very good. i am starting with an 8 on this track!
Very smooth.
the subtle mariachi influence in this track is just mesmerizingly wonderful.
oh, this is nice. great addition, william.
