Been listening to Arcade Fire. My wife and I both rocked out to this song in the car. I love the lyrics:

Some boys hate themselves

Spend their lives resenting their fathers

Some girls hate their bodies

Stand in the mirror and wait for the feedback

Saying God, make me famous

If you can't just make it painless

Just make it painless

Assisted suicide

She dreams about dying all the time

She told me she came so close

Filled up the bathtub and put on our first record

Saying God, make me famous

If you can't just make it painless

Just make it painless

It goes on and on, I don't know what I want

On and on, I don't know if I want it

On and on, I don't know what I want

On and on, I don't know if I want it

(On and on I don't know what I want)

(On and on I don't know if I want it)

(On and on I don't know what I want)

(On and on I don't know if I want it)

Some girls hate themselves

Hide under the covers with sleeping pills and

Some girls cut themselves

Stand in the mirror and wait for the feedback

Some boys get too much, too much love, too much touch

Some boys starve themselves

Stand in the mirror and wait for the feedback

Creature comfort makes it painless

Bury me penniless and nameless

Born in a diamond mine

It's all around you but you can't see it

Born in a diamond mine

It's all around you but you can't touch it

Saying God, make me famous

If you can't just make it painless

Just make it painless

It's not painless

She was a friend of mine, a friend of mine

And we're not nameless, oh

It goes on and on, I don't know what I want

On and on, I don't know if I want it

On and on, I don't know what I want

On and on, I don't know if I want it

(On and on I don't know what I want)

(On and on I don't know if I want it)

(On and on I don't know what I want)

Well if you're not sure, better safe than sorry

Creature comfort, make it painless

Creature comfort, make it painless

We're the bones under your feet

The white lie of American prosperity

We wanna dance but we can't feel the beat

I'm a liar, don't doubt my sincerity

Just make it painless

Creature comfort, make it painless

Creature comfort, make it painless

I saw Arcade Fire live. A little to hipster-y for my tastes, but I heard that the live shows were amazing. The live show was amazing. Debating going to see Cold War Kids this summer when they are in town, which is kind of in the same vein as AF.
