"Little Kids" as written by and Bradford Cox Lockett Pundt....
Kids drinking gin on their front lawn
Little kids see that man walking down, the dirt road
These kids see this guy
And they think of him dressed in flames
Kids walk behind, slowly stalk, that old man

To get older still (x4)

These kids followed him in, into his shed
Where he turns on the radio, and smokes a cig
These kids cover him in gasoline, and they strike a match

to get older still (repeat)

    General CommentThis is my favourite track on the new album, and I think it's about resentment of youth being punished by resentment of the elderly. And with this amazing crescendo of shoegaze and noise rock near the end, I can just imagine the shed being all up in flames by then. Really nice juxtaposition of sound and thematic content.

    General Commentwonder whether they ever considered singing the chorus as a "round"?

    General CommentI've only just heard this song twice. I love how when it gets to just barely before the 3-minute mark, you think it's gone as far as it's going to go. Then it goes farther, and you feel as if it's going to take your head off.

    Every clock is a blunt instrument, crushing your skull
