"Sprawl II (Mountains Beyond Mountains)" by Arcade Fire

“Sometimes I wonder if the world’s so small that we can never get away from the sprawl.”

They heard me singing and they told me to stop
Quit these pretentious things and just punch the clock
These days my life, I feel it has no purpose
But late at night the feelings swim to the surface

‘Cause on the surface the city lights shine
They’re calling at me, come and find your kind
Sometimes I wonder if the World’s so small
That we can never get away from the sprawl

I need the darkness, someone please cut the light

We rode our bikes to the nearest park
Sat under the swings and kissed in the dark
We shield our eyes from the police lights
We run away, but we don’t know why
Black river, your city lights shine
They’re screaming at us, we don’t need your kind

Sometimes I wonder if the world’s so small
That we can never get away from the sprawl

Living in the sprawl
Dead shopping malls rise like mountains beyond mountains
And there’s no end in sight
I need the darkness, someone please cut the lights

Living in the sprawl
Dead shopping malls rise like mountains beyond mountains

And there’s no end in sight
I need the darkness, someone please cut the lights
I need the darkness, someone please cut the lights
