My roommate has a copy of the new Arcade Fire album... I think she said it's not available yet? --I'm not sure how she came about it, but in any case, it's really good.<br><br><br><br>
There's this one song, Intervention, that I really like a lot. I have no idea what the lyrics are about ...any guesses?<br><br><br><br><br><br>
The keys taken back I throw<br><br>
The useless seed was sown<br><br>
When they say they're cutting off the phone<br><br>
Then tell 'em you're not home<br><br><br><br>
No place to hide<br><br>
You'll find there's a soldier on their side<br><br>
You're still a soldier in your mind<br><br>
But nothing's on the line<br><br><br><br>
You say it's money that we need<br><br>
As if we're the only mouths to feed<br><br>
I know that no matter what you say<br><br>
There are some debts we never pay<br><br><br><br>
Working for the church while your family dies<br><br>
You take what they give you<br><br>
You keep it inside<br><br>
Every spark of friendship and love will die without a home<br><br>
Hear the soldier groan all quiet and alone<br><br><br><br>
I can taste the fear<br><br>
Lift me up and take me out of here<br><br>
Don't want to fight, don't want to die<br><br>
Just want to hear you cry<br><br><br><br>
Who's gonna throw the very first stone<br><br>
Oh, who's gonna re-set the bone<br><br>
Walking with your hand in a sling<br><br>
Wanna hear the soldier sing<br><br><br><br>
Working for the church while my family dies<br><br>
You're little baby sister's gonna lose her mind<br><br>
Every spark of friendship and love will die without a home<br><br>
Hear the soldier groan all quiet and alone<br><br><br><br>
I can taste your fear<br><br>
It's gonna lift you up and take you out of here<br><br>
If the bone shot never heals<br><br>
I cannot make him yield<br><br><br><br>
You can't find me now<br><br>
They're gonna get their money back somehow<br><br>
And when you finally disappear<br><br>
They're gonna say you were never here<br><br><br><br>
Been working for the church while your life falls apart<br><br>
They're singing hallelujah when defeating your heart<br><br>
Every spark of friendship and love will die without a home<br><br>
Hear the soldier groan all quiet and alone<br><br>
Hear the soldier groan all quiet and alone

I managed to get my paws on it too. I LOOOOOVE IT!<br><br>
I'm still going to buy the album when it comes out though <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/blush.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":eek:"><br><br>
I can't remeber the title of the song but the one that goes<br><br>
"My body is a cage" ummmm or something like that, is my favorite.<br><br>
I hope they tour North America soon. I know they are at Cochella but I can't make it out there.
