The Shins The Past And Pending Lyrics

Last updated: 02/22/2009 10:00:00 AM

As someone sets light to the first fire of autumn
We settle down to cut ourselves apart.
Cough and twitch from the news on your face
And some foreign candle burning in your eyes

Held to the past too aware of the pending
Chill as the dawn breaks and finds us up for sale.
Enter the fog another low road descending
Away from the cold lust, you house and summertime.

Blind to the last cursed affair pistols and countless eyes
A trail of white blood betrays the reckless route your craft is running
Feed till the sun turns into wood dousing an ancient torch
Loiter the whole day through and lose yourself in lines dissecting love.

Your name on my cast and my notes on your stay
Offer me little but doting on a crime.
We've turned every stone and for all our inventions
In matters of love loss, we've no recourse at all.

Blind to the last cursed affair pistols and countless eyes
A trail of white blood betrays the reckless route your craft is running
Feed till the sun turns into wood dousing an ancient torch
Loiter the whole day through and lose yourself in lines dissecting love.

I get this song. I love this song. The Shins have many songs with deep seeded lyrics (in a good sense) but this is one of the best songs by these guys. I concur with all of the comments above. I have to go now. I'm going to listen to the song again.

This song is so sad yet so beautiful I could listen to it for days. They go with an a capella group I really like, even though no one knows who they are they are amazing!!!! GO ON THE ROCKS and THE SHINS!!!!
