Mansard Roof
Vampire Weekend Lyrics


I see a Mansard Roof through the trees
I see a salty message written in the eves
The ground beneath my feet
We are garbage and concrete
And now the tops of buildings
I can see them, too

I see a Mansard Roof through the trees
I see a salty message written in the eves
The ground beneath my feet
We are garbage and concrete
And now the tops of buildings
I can see them, too

The Argentines collapse in defeat
The admiralty surveys the remnants of the fleet
The ground beneath their feet
Is a nautically map sheet
As thin as paper
While it slips away from you

I see a mansard roof through the trees
I see a salty message written in the eaves
The ground beneath my feet
The hot garbage and concrete
And now the tops of buildings, I can see them too

I see a mansard roof through the trees
I see a salty message written in the eaves
The ground beneath my feet
The hot garbage and concrete
And now the tops of buildings, I can see them too

The Argentines collapse in defeat
The admiralty surveys the remnants of the fleet
The ground beneath their feet
Is a nautically-mapped sheet
As thin as paper while it slips away from view

My dad was shot 10 years ago, I was in high school. On the day that it happened, after being in the hospital the whole day, some friends came pick me up to grab something to eat. This album was playing in the car. This song in particular made me happy after a very terrible day.

My dad ended up dying 30 days later. But remembering this song, and this album, always brings back the feeling of how one can feel good even in the darkest of times.

Moo

For the past ten years I’ve listened to this song every time I go through the car wash. All of the crescendos and transitions time perfectly with the jets, brushes and lights show. When you’re done, your car is clean and all of your pain has washed away. Life becomes beautiful again like a movie. Press play right after you put the car in neutral.
