A Movie Script Ending Lyrics - Death Cab For Cutie



Review The Song (3)


Whenever I come back,
the air on railroad is making the same sounds.
And the shop fronts on Holly
are dirty words (asterisks in for the vowels)
and we peered through the windows:
New bottoms on barstools, the people remain the same,
with prices inflating - inflating

As if saved from the gallows,
there's a bellow of buzzers and people stop working
and they're all so excited - excited

Passing through uncounscious states,
when I awoke I was on the high-way - high-way high-way high-way
With your hands on my shoulders ,
a meaningless movement: A movie script ending,
and the patrons are leaving - leaving

Passing through uncounscious states, when I awoke I was on the high-way
high-way high-way high-way high-way high-way high-way high-way
and now we all know the words were true
in the sappiest songs - yes, yes.
and I'll put them to bed, but they won't sleep.
Just shuffling the sheets, to toss and turn,
you can't begin to get it back.

Passing through uncouscious states, when I awoke I was on
the onset of a later stage: the headlights are beacons on the high-way
high-way high-way high-way high-way high-way high-way high-way.

'A Movie Script Ending' talks about a guy who returns to his hometown and his significant other. Essentially, everyone has stayed the same, despite the fact that everything around them has not, which pleases him. For me, the core of this song is the chorus, where he is 'passing through unconscious states', as if his visit home were a dream and he was back on the road before he knew it (hence the 'highway'). In the bridge, he talks about saying goodbye (again) to his significant other, but he wants to avoid using cliched words, as they are too shallow to express his feelings to her. Absolutely fantastic song.



my thoughts, i guess | Reviewer: Anonymous | 11/5/08

this is my interpretation, at least for right now. it's a guy and he had to leave his girlfriend or she had to leave him or something even though they didn't want to. he's reflecting on what he had and where he is right now when she is far away. he's regretting that he never saw how beautiful it was and instead took it for granted. maybe he's back home to try and forget? i don't know. that's just the story i think of when i hear this song.



Colt | Reviewer: Colt Erickson | 9/2/08

This song is talking about Bellingham Washington Ie. Railroad and Holly st. he explains that the people in Bellingham dont change but everything around us is for example like inflating prices. I always thought that this song was about Belingham and i never was positive and last night at bumbershoot Ben lead singer contributed this song to everyone from Bellingham. It kinda figures because Deathcab is from Bellingham Washington.
