[I set a fire just to see what it kills]


Little faith, follow me, I set a fire in a blackberry field, make us laugh or nothing will. I set a fire just to see what it kills. Now I’m stuck in New York and the rain’s coming down. I don’t feel like we’ll go anywhere – stuck in New York – and the rain’s coming down, still in line for the vanity fair. Leave our excellent souls, head for the coast, leave our excellent souls, everything goes. All our lonely kicks are getting harder to find. We’ll play nuns versus priests until somebody cries. All our lonely kicks that make us saintly and thin, we’ll play nuns versus priests until somebody wins. Awesome prince, get your sleep, lose your heart in history, make us laugh or nothing will, I set a fire just to see what it kills. Don’t be bitter, Anna, I know how you think, you’re waiting for Radio City to sink, you’ll find commiseration in everyone’s eyes, the storm will suck the pretty girls into the sky. All our lonely kicks are getting harder to find, we’ll play nuns versus priests until somebody cries, all our lonely kicks that make us saintly and thin, we’ll play nuns versus priests until somebody wins. Leave our excellent souls, head for the coast, leave our excellent souls, everything goes.

You might think I am obsessed with The National.
You’re right.
