Neighborhood #4
Arcade Fire Lyrics


I am waitin' 'til I don't know when
'Cause I'm sure it's gonna happen then
Time keeps creepin' through the neighborhood
Killing old folks, wakin' up babies
Just like we knew it would

All the neighbors are startin' up a fire
Burning all the old folks the witches and the liars
My eyes are covered by the hands of my unborn kids
But my heart keeps watchin'
Through the skin of my eyelids

They say a watched pot won't ever boil
Well I closed my eyes and nothin' changed
Just some water getting hotter in the flames

It's not a lover I want no more
And it's not heaven I'm pining for
But there's some spirit I used to know
That's been drowned out by the radio

They say a watched pot won't ever boil
You can't raise a baby on motor oil
Just like a seed down in the soil
You gotta give it time

I am waitin’ ‘til I don’t know when


‘Cause I’m sure it’s gonna happen then


Time keeps creepin’ through the neighborhood


Killin’ old folks, wakin’ up babies


Just like we knew it would.





All the neighbors are startin’ up a fire


Burnin’ all the old folks, the witches and the liars


My eyes are covered by the hands of my unborn kids,


But my heart keeps watchin’ through the skin of my eyelids.





They say a watched pot won’t ever boil


Well, I closed my eyes and nothin’ changed


Just some water gettin’ hotter in the flames.





It’s not a lover I want no more


And it’s not heaven I’m pinin’ for


But there’s some spirit I used to know


That’s been drowned out by the radio.





They say a watched pot won’t ever boil


You can’t raise a baby on motor oil


Just like a seed down in the soil, you’ve got to give it time.

@Joneya Kinyaani I still have the first AF disc I purchased years ago, "Neon Bible."

This album changed everything

Raymond Lind

@Sanchit Varma It is possibly the best album of the 21st century. At least in the rock genre.

Sanchit Varma

It greatly changed my taste in music. It was like a shocking eye opener of what modern music was capable of.
