MADNESS - JOY - THE SUBURBS - MONTH OF MAY

Just madness. Madness and sheer joy.

The new single is out there!

Update #1
I feel hugging someone for a really long period of time. Arcade Fire are back! This sounds almost too amazing for my own good. If that's possible. The lyrics to The Suburbs are just incredible. Got me from the 1st listen. Month of May is just such a great, great rock song.

It's nice to be reminded why you hold them in the highest esteem. Just saying.

Month of May

Update #2
Lyrics Edit: The lyrics to The Suburbs has now been confirmed. Should be 100% accurate. Month of May still very much unconfirmed.

The Suburbs

In the suburbs I, I learned to drive
And you told me we'd never survive
Grab your mother's keys we're leaving

You always seemed so sure
That one day we'd be fighting
In a suburban war
Your part of town against mine
I saw you standing on the opposite shore
But by the time the first bombs fell
We were already bored
We were already, already bored

Sometimes I can't believe it
I'm moving past the feeling
Sometimes I can't believe it
I'm moving past the feeling again

The kids want to be so hard
But in my dreams we're still screaming
And running through the yard
When all the walls that they built in the 70's finally fall,
And all of the houses they built in the 70's finally fall--
Meant nothing at all?
Meant nothing at all,
It meant nothing

Sometimes I can't believe it
I'm moving past the feeling
Sometimes I can't believe it
I'm moving past the feeling
And into the night

So can you understand
Why I want a daughter while I'm still young?
I want to hold her hand,
And show her some beauty,
Before all this damage is done
But if it's too much to ask
If it's too much to ask
Then send me a son

Under the overpass
In the parking lot we're still waiting
It's already past
So move your feet from hot pavement
And into the grass
'Cause it's already past
It's already, already past

Sometimes I can't believe it
I'm moving past the feeling
sometimes I can't believe it
I'm moving past the feeling again
I'm moving past the feeling
I'm moving past the feeling

In my dreams we're still screaming
We're still screaming
We're still screaming

Month of May

1! 2! 3! 4!

gonna make a record in the month of May
in the month of May
in the month of May
gonna make a record in the month of May
when the violent wind blows the wires away

month of May, it's a violent thing
in the city their hearts start to sing
well, some people singing sounds like screaming
used to doubt it but now I believe it

month of May, everybody sing love
in the city, watch it from above
and just when I knew what I wanted to say
the violent wind blew the wires away

we were shocked in the suburbs

now the kids are all standing with their arms folded tight
the kids are all standing with their arms folded tight
now, some things are pure and some things are right
but the kids are still standing with their arms folded tight
I said some things are pure and some things are right
but the kids are still with their arms folded tight

so young! so young!
so much pain for someone so young, well
I know it's heavy, I know it ain't light
but how you gonna lift it with your arms folded tight?

............. in the middle of the town
that's why I'm still driving around
and around and around and around and around
and around and around and around and around
(and around and around and around and around...)

2009! 2010!

wanna make a record how I felt then
when I stood outside in the month of May
and watched the violent wind blow the wires away

if I died in the month of May
let the wind take my body away, then
wish I may, I wish I might
............ me down there with my arms folded tight

start again in the month of May
start again in the month of May
come on and blow the wires away
come on and blow the wires away

start again in the month of May
start again in the month of May
come on and blow the wires away
come on and blow the wires away

start again in the month of May
start again in the month of May
come on and blow the wires away
come on and blow the wires, the wires away

Pauline, haha! I was so excited I could barely type :D

Almost don't want to correct the typos. But I probably should.

Pauline said...

mlh79 said...

Absolutely awesome!! Can't get enough of them!

Even though the songs are new and brilliant, I feel like I've been listening to them for ages already, if that makes sense?! Just because they are so utterly epic!

Love this band sooo much!

joel said...

I can't get over how maddeningly amazing both of these songs are. This band just pushed all the right buttons for me.

Thank you, thank you, thank you Arcade Fire!

Steven said...

Are the lyrics even more breathtaking and beautiful.

joel said...

The lyrics for The Suburbs in particular is magnificent.

John said...

The Suburbs might be my new favourite song by them... I mean, look at those lyrics! A suburban war?? No one else but Arcade Fire can pull that off.

joel said...

Yeah those lyrics are quite simply a stroke of genius.
