"Little Drum" as written by and Andy Monaghan Aaron Dessner....
I was mothered like an orchid tethered to eternal sights
I hurried home in orbit close to where I know I’m fine
No edge of the seat, no arms ever broken, you see

I waited for the crash to come
Too many days with too little to do
I waited but nothing came at all
So many days spent in empty rooms

The little drum inside behaves itself until you turn twenty-five
And then it strikes this all we've lived this long and only ever half alive

I waited for the crash to come
Too many days with too little to do
I waited but nothing came at all
So many days spent in empty rooms

It’s too late for a wasted youth
All quiet on the Eastern Front now
We dare not move
It’s too late to wage a war
It’s all quiet on the Eastern Front and
We all are bored

    General CommentI think this song is about living in fear for years, and later realizing that there was nothing to fear at all.
