Phantom Limb
The Shins Lyrics


Frozen into coats
White girls of the north
Filed past one, five and one
They are the fabled lambs
A Sunday ham
The ancient snow

And they could float above the grass
In circles if they tried
A latent power I'm known to hide
To keep some hope alive
That a girl like I could ever try
Could ever try

So we just skirt the hallway signs
A phantom and a fly
Follow the lines and wonder why
There's no connection
And weakened falling eyes
In cheap shots from the tribe
And we're off to Nemarca' porch again

Another afternoon
Of the goat-head tunes and pilfered booze
We wander through her Momma's house
The milk from the window lights
Family portrait, circa '95

This is that foreign land
With the sprayed-on tans
And it all feels fine
Be it silk or slime

So, when they tap our Monday heads
Two zombies walk in our stead
This town seems hardly worth our time
And we'll no longer memorize or rhyme
Too far along in our crime
Stepping over what now towers to the sky
With no connection

So, when they tap our Sunday heads
Two zombie walk in our stead
This town seems hardly worth the time
And we'll no longer memorize or rhyme
Too far along in our crime
Stepping over what now towers to the sky
With no connection

The Indie heyday was a glorious time to be young

Being a teenager in the 90s was simply amazing. I wish I could go back in time and slap my teenage self for ever wishing to grow up or thinking things sucked.

It was a good time to be a little older too. Us guys that dug into the Cure in the late 80s and into the Grunge from the College Alternative 90s....these great songs feel so true and good.

@Club Astro Transcendental Motor Yeah, but let people feel special :)

Simon Lechartier

The album was released in 2007... Not in the late 90's
