Follow me
To the shipwreck shores
Of a dark and strange country
I was born
A stranger thinking out loud

In a foreign tongue
I was out of place
I was looking all around
Just a trying to find a friendly face

But they're all gone
And did you ever think
Did you ever think, think,
Lotta people everyday who will surely drown?
And did you ever think
Did you ever think, think,
Who left me all alone in this town?

And a busted heart
Is a welcome friend
And when that heart leaves
What will you do then?

And if I cry
Is that a sin?
And wisdom is a whisper
And I'm trying to understand

What I say, what I think,
Where I sleep, when I breathe
What I do with my hands

    General CommentReally awesome band. Their first CD is coming out around December. If anyone is familiar with, you might know and ex-employee of them, Christian Rudder. I am pretty sure he is the bass player in this band. They are really good, their website has this song, which you can listen to on it. It's weird, but very good. Give it a chance.

    General Commentthe funny thing is that this is the only song of theirs that sounds like modest mouse. most sound more original. i love bishop allen and modest mouse but i also hear just a little bit of the pixies in this song. either way, it was cool as hell seeing them perform this one live.
