Lyrics:
The day the music dies

It takes character to make a decision
It takes more to stand firm and follow through
But some stand points are more than I can live up to

Performed an exorcism on myself
Cited prayers and rites of deliverance
Yet here I am, somehow still possessed

The future’s never starting
The present never ends
I left us both bombarded
But I’m not here to make amends

Fondling the thighs of forfeit
I guess I can’t brush aside
I’m waiting for the day the music dies

Oh the places one looks for makeshift
I tried to ruin myself for you
Hoping that you’d rather resent than miss

How can one kill an impulsion
When it’s still kicking and breathing
Forces are a cut above the will of the self

The future’s never starting
The present never ends
I left us both bombarded
But I’m not here to make amends

Fondling the thighs of forfeit
I guess I can’t brush aside
I’m waiting for the day the music dies

Jumping from one bosom to the next
Hitting every branch in the fall
Beaten to a pulp by every caress
In the tempest, unaffected by it all
And I’m hoping that the end is nigh
I’m waiting for the day the music,
Waiting for the day the music dies

Love and Share!

  1. Really don't see why everyone is giving their singles for this album so much shit, the band is progressing in such an exciting and perfect way. I fucking love iceage and all their albums are pretty much equally awesome to me. Really don't understand the comparisons to blur and oasis either, this stuff is so much darker, sludgier and rawer than anything those bands have ever done, the addition of the horns and strings just bring it to epic levels. Im loving it. So excited about the new record.
    Also can't wait for that guy Anthony Fantano to give it a positive review and see everybody suddenly fall in love with it.

  2. At least with Plowing they were going into an artisticly new ground. This is just re-hashed Oasis, whom I personally dislike immensely. What the hell happened to the noise and grooves from New Brigade? Or the poetic decadence in Plowing? Even You're Nothing had more guts than this.

  3. pretty basic and boring song. the only good thing about it is somewhat pleasent chorus and rythm. "Painkiller" was such a better tune. They look better and more inviting than they sound.
