"Sister Nebraska" as written by and Colin Meloy....
Slow down
You're tripping on your laces
While you're climbing up your stairs

You got your moon boots a-buckled
You'll catch yourself pneumonia
But you're too caught up to care

Would you tell your heart to tell you
Just to slow down?

And it's all action
You're tearing out your hairpiece
Too much stress and angst to bear

But you are two toned
And faking this emotion just to
Keep your ankles bare

You tell your heart to tell you
But your heart has gone to hide
Would it say slow down?
Got to turn this volume down

Got your nose pierced
You're thinking 'bout your navel
But that's too much MTV

And you're all strung out
Your pretty little britches that are
Hanging below your knees

You tell your heart to tell you
But your heart has gone to hide
Would it say slow down?
Got to turn this volume down

Got to slow down
Got to turn this volume down
And I'd say

Night's cold calm your eyes down
Set 'em off to sleeping
Slow down you're wearing thin
From all this wax doll converting

And say slow down
You say tone down
You say slow down
Got to turn this volume down

I say slow down
Got to turn this volume down
Got to slow down
Got to turn this volume down
Say slow down, I say slow down
