The Arcade Fire Sprawl I (Flatland) Lyrics

Last updated: 08/16/2010 12:00:00 PM

Took a drive into the sprawl
To find the house where we used to stay
We couldn't read the number in the dark
You said:"Let's save it for another day"

Took a drive into the sprawl
To find the places we used to play
It was the loneliest day of my life
You're talking at me but I'm still far away

Let's take a drive through the sprawl
Through these towns they built to change
Then you said:"The emotions are dead.
It's no wonder that you feel so strange"

The cops shone their lights
On the reflectors of our bikes
And said:"Do you kids know what time it is?"
--Well sir, it's the first time I've felt like something is mine
Like I have something to give

The last defender of the sprawl
Said:"Well where do you kids live?"
--Well sir, if you only knew what the answer's worth
I've been searching every corner of the Earth
