Hudson
Vampire Weekend Lyrics


Hudson died in Hudson Bay
The water took its victim's name
The river's rise told Riverside to change their names again

A stranger walked in through the door
Said all apartments are pre-war
We laughed and asked him for his name
He stayed until the end

We watched the Germans play the Greeks
We marked the ninety nine year lease
Our fathers signed
Which I declined to try and comprehend

Over and over again, all these never-ending visions
Over and over again like a prize that's changing hands
The time has a come
The clock is such a drag
All you who changed your stripes can wrap me in the flag

The legendary wooden gate
The first established real estate
Is lost in time like all the crimes
That won this pleasant land

Over and over again, all these never-ending visions
Over and over again like a prize that's changing hands
The time has a come
The clock is such a drag
All you who changed your stripes can wrap me in the flag

Hudson died on Hudson Bay
But I was born on Sutton Place
The rising tide helped me decide to change my name again
Some men tend to linger on and some make haste from Babylon
Some will roam their ruined home, rejoicing 'til the end

Over and over again, all these never-ending visions
Over and over again like a prize that's changing hands
The time has come
The clock is such a drag
All you who changed your stripes can wrap me in the flag

The lines are drawn
The map is such a drag
All you who changed your stripes can wrap me in the flag

Wow I never thought I'd hear a creepy Vampire Weekend song. What a cool surprise. It's nice but I'm glad this is rare for them.

Greg B

Vampire Weekday

Janis Daugavietis

I'm not
I want more of this.
This is my TOP 3 their favourite song

K-leb

For a band called Vampire Weekend, I would've thought there'd be more "creepy" songs by them.

cat paws

Lmao watch the new album is full of creepy songs

Airraan

Daniel Alvarez it is

Zodazzle

"This song is eerie"
Yeah, probably because it's named after a guy that got mutinied and left in a icy bay by his ship crew, never to be seen again.

Madalyn Anderson

this is hauntingly numbing

Leemythic

it's like they went more spiritual in this song

Trinity

this song creeps me out in a good way
