"Microcastle" as written by and Bradford Cox....
All I've
seen
All I've
seen

Try to
describe it

In the time
of all of it

Try not to
come to bed
Warm and
I might slip
I might do
I might

Try to
describe it all

In your time
end it all

All I do
it may be not it

On and on
it could be my begining
All thru time
All thru time

    General CommentI think the song is similar to "Agoraphobia". In fact, most of the songs on Microcastle seem to be about the phobia itself. The way the lyrics are make it sound like a person with agoraphobia but who does not know there is such a thing. They try to describe the way they feel to others but they can't. They don't realize what triggers their fear. They just keep to themselves in their own "Microcastle" (their home).

    My Interpretationok slight correction, doesn't really matter but I think it goes
    "Warm ME and..."
    other than that maybe second best song on the record, and really seems to capture the deerhunter aesthetic I think it is kind of about how some things you feel are just wrong and meaningless but we are in that time period where it is the norm and there is no other opinion of it so you can't really fully grasp the absoluteness of it, especially in "all ive seen try to describe it in the time of all of it" and then maybe feeling like doing something about it like if you warm me up to it I might something... Not sure about the last verse but I like how the music seems to create this awakening that it will all be ok and we must do the best at exsisting in our own time regarless of the world around us we are dealt at birth.
