    Not even a huge Interpol fan but the emotion in this song is powerful. The trading guitars at the start are particularly cool

    they were awesome live


I wish I could eat the salt off of your lost faded lips
We can cap the old times make playing only logical harm
We can cap the old lines make playing that nothing else will change
