They Were Wrong
Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros Lyrics


"Here son watch the dog eat dog"
He spoke with eyes of the stiffest blue
He peeled my fists, said "let it go"
Saying "hope like that and you'll never grow"

I'll go dancing with disease, darling please
They are wrong
I'll go swinging, singing peace, darling please
They are wrong,
I say they been here for too long they are wrong
They are wrong

So, to my child not yet born
I've just one world of which to warn
It lives in the mouths of choking dreams
Sickness like that you've never seen

I'll go dancing with disease, darling please
They are wrong
I'll go swinging, singing peace, darling please
They are wrong,
I say they been here for too long they are wrong
They are wrong

I watched the Hobbit a few weeks ago and this song also reminds me a little of the song the Dwarfs sing when they go to Bilbo's Cottage to ask him to assist them, it is a very poignant and seductive melody and he Sounds a lot like Leonard Cohen!
