Neighborhood #3
Arcade Fire Lyrics


I woke up with the power out
Not really something to shout about
Ice has covered up my parents hands
Don't have any dreams, don't have any plans

I went out into the night
I went out to find some light
Kids are swingin' from the power lines
Nobody's home, so nobody minds

I woke up on the darkest night
Neighbors all were shoutin' that they found the light
(We found the light)
Shadows jumpin' all over my walls
Some of them big, some of them small

I went out into the night
I went out to pick a fight with anyone
Light a candle for the kids
Jesus Christ don't keep it hid

Ice has covered up my parents hands
Don't have any dreams don't have any plans
Growin' up in some strange storm
Nobody's cold, nobody's warm

I went out into the night
I went out to find some light
Kids are dyin' out in the snow
Look at them go, look at them go

And the power's out in the heart of man
Take it from your heart, put in your hand

What's the plan?

Is it a dream? Is it a lie?
I think I'll let you decide
Just light a candle for the kids
Jesus Christ don't keep it hid

Cause nothin's hid, from us kids
You ain't foolin' nobody with the lights out

And the power's out in the heart of man
Take it from your heart put in your hand
And there's something wrong in the heart of man
Take it from your heart, put it in your hand

Where'd you go?

The first song i ever heard by them. I then heard Rebellion (Lies), bought the album and they became the best band i heard in yeeeears ❤💯

Jesus Luna

First song I heard was Rebellion (Lies) on MTV recorded it on my VCR. Bought the CD. My Daughter was a toddler then. Listeing to it in the car going back an forth to whatever. She remembers being in her carseat. We've both been fans ever since. She going to be 21 soon. I get what you mean.😊 Great Band!

I remember in autumn 2019 when I first got this album (of course I knew Arcade Fire way before), I went to bed at 4 am one night and woke up at 5 pm to catch a bus. I was a uni student at the time, and it was going to be my first time I was going to teach English to a class of high school kids as part of our college work experience. The truth is, not only I was tired, but I was also stressing because I felt like an impostor and because teaching is not the same as giving a presentation in front of an audience, which is something I never struggled with.

So, naturally, I just didn't want to show up, and the lack of sleep got in my way of thinking to the point I wanted to flunk out the subject and not show up. However, I remember this song came on that morning (I was obsessed with this album, so I just let it play all the songs) and it gave me the self confidence and assertiveness I had needed. Until then, I never really liked this song that much, but right then, it really made sense and became one of my favourites.

And that's the difference between regular music fans, and people who listen to bands I think. The former ones listen to music for the enjoyment, and the latter use the music for specific purpose. I am not trying to sound superior btw, just saw this song being recommended and it brought me back to the last month before the Covid chaos began,

This will always be one of my top five AF songs. Have heard them do this live SO many times and it blows me away every time.

Sincerely Me,

Amazing song! It makes me feel... like a soldier, standing in the midst of the battlefield. It's so heavy, electrifying, makes anyone feel powerful. I'm hitting the gym to this song. LOVE Y'ALL ON ARCADE FIRE! 🔥

Stuart Welch

Now I need to go back and listen to this album again for the thousandth time.
