Took the fireworks and the vanity
The circuit board and the city streets
Shooting star, swaying palm tree
Laid it at the arbiter's feet

    One of the best Bright Eyes songs ever. Emotionally cathartic and amazing. Also, the synths are the best, I don't care what anyone says.

    The Pomegranate guy. @ChrisCapello "The more I listen to it, the more I like it. Synths! Also, how brilliant is it that he references the earlier Bright Eyes albums in the opening lines via their covers? Took the fireworks (Letting off the Happiness) and the vanity (Fevers and Mirrors) the circuitboard (Digital Ash) and the city streets (I'm Wide Awake It's Morning), the shooting star, swaying palm tree (Cassadaga), and laid it at the arbiter's feet. That's amazing. I just wish he had mentioned Lifted too, since it's my favorite Bright Eyes album." WOW, I can't believe I never caught that before. Conor never ceases to amaze me.

    I like that the lyrics reference the album covers throughout his career.

    "My private life is an inside joke, no one will explain it to me." I love how there's now a healthy dose of humour and self-awareness thrown in with the angst. Plus, that pretty much sums up my life right now.
