Arcade Fire: Suburbs

I’ve been a fan of Arcade Fire for a few years now and have been waiting for an opportunity to see them in concert. I own all of their albums, Neon Bible being my favorite, followed by Funeral. I downloaded their newest album, Suburbs, as soon as it was released, but never really got a chance to get a thorough listen. Suburbs has just won Album of the Year and it is about time I gave some real quality time listening to it… and undoubtedly I’m sure I will love it. Already found one song I love off the album, Ready to Start, but mostly because of personal reasons. I really like the sound of Half Light I & II.

Businessmen drink my blood
Like the kids in art school said they would
And I guess I’ll just begin again
You say can we still be friends

If I was scared, I would
And if I was bored, you know I would
And if I was yours, but I’m not

All the kids have always known
That the emperor wears no clothes
But to bow down to them anyway
Is better than to be alone

If I was scared, I would
And if I was bored, you know I would
And if I was yours, but I’m not

Now you’re knocking at my door
Saying please come out with us tonight
But I would rather be alone
Than pretend I feel alright

If the businessmen drink my blood
Like the kids in art school said they would
Then I guess I’ll just begin again
You say can we still be friends

If I was scared, I would
And if I was pure, you know I would
And if I was yours, but I’m not

Now I’m Ready to Start

If I was scared, I would
And if I was pure, you know I would
And if I was yours, but I’m not

Now I’m Ready to Start

Now I’m Ready to Start
I would rather be wrong
Than live in the shadows of your song
My mind is open wide
And now I’m ready to start

Now I’m Ready to Start
My mind is open wide
Now I’m Ready to Start
Not sure you’ll open the door
To step out into the dark
Now I’m ready!
