President of What?
Death Cab for Cutie Lyrics


I saw the scene unfold on a rainy Sunday
Creases indicating fold that kept four walls from caving in
I took a little more of what I take for granted
And filled my plate for fear that gears would turn

And wheels would roll away
Something's got to break you down
Entered the scene (i'm told) on I think it was Monday
You drove straight through and mined that quarry
For all it could bleed 'til dry
I took a little more 'til I got taken for granted
Cause beautiful boys gave chase
And when they arch your backbone

It's such a dreadful sight
I'll react when faces find you
With jealous fits that gag and bind you
Cause nothing hurts like nothing at all
When imagination takes full control

And when they arch your backbone
It's such a dreadful sight

I'm conflicted as to I don't know if I like this or the version found in "You Can Play These Songs with Chords" better. Great song, nonetheless.

Lou Frances

They should play this at every show. 💙

georgetaylor100

anyone know where the sample for the spoken part is from? I think it just fits the melody and tone of the song so perfectly and Im just curious where it is sourced from. Seems like some psychologist or something?
