    General CommentIt´s about a guy in a tall building that likes to be shaken for the same reason he likes turbulence in a flight.

    General CommentMaybe it's about dude, who wants to go in a free flight from the roof of the skyscraper... And he just asks the building to help in a final step. As an optional.

    Song MeaningI can't help but feel like this about 9/11...I mean he is a native and I know its 8 years late but idk I can't see it being about anything else. Of course Paul Banks does use free association so I could be wrong

    General Commentthe instrumentals are amazing
    and just the fact that the only lines sung are "shake me, shake me, skyscraper" make it more impactful and meaningful
    brilliant.
