You can judge the lyrics of your own:
"the new year"
so everybody put your best suit or dress on
let's make believe that we are wealthy for just this once
lighting firecrackers off on the front lawn
as thirty dialogues bleed into one
i wish the world was flat like the old days
then i could travel just by folding a map
no more airplanes, or speedtrains, or freeways
there'd be no distance that can hold us back.
personally, i like nerdy their little intros:
the glove compartment isn't accurately named
and everybody knows it.
so i'm proposing a swift orderly change.
cause behind its door there's nothing to keep my fingers warm
and all i find are souvenirs from better times
before the gleam of your taillights fading east
to find yourself a better life.
Im really inscure about my self image, all songs must be about murder.
Actually, im a giant pussy, and i cant listen to "the new year" without crying, so i listen to shallow death metal shit.
Not emo. Unfortunately, if you write lyrics that are borderline depressing you get labeled "emo" when their music is more in line with other bands of that areas like Modest Mouse, and even The Shins.
Easily one of the greatest bands today.
Seeing them live was easily the best concert I have ever been to. They sound exactly the same as they do recorded, and 4 weeks later, I am still in awe of their remarkable talent. I will always always love Death Cab.
The Sound of Settling is Death Cab at it's worst. I hate that song.
