    Rather than my ears, I used my connections. A certain someone told me it is "Yellow voices swallowing my soul soul soul".

    It's "You're the voices". Use your ears.

    "Yellow voices swallowing my soul soul soul" are the correct lyrics. Red bodies, blue bodies, orange umbrella, yellow voices....genius.

    So instead of making a new album, Sufjan is singing background vocals!! Well, it is a great song anyway.

    "I don't have the drugs to sort it out..." Brilliant stuff! Also I'm pretty sure it's "Yellow voices swallowing my soul".

    imho, their best song ever. Or one of their best. I'll never be able to choose only one song by The National. But this one stays with me.

    I am fully convinced he is saying "You're the voices swallowing my soul" You can hear the extra syllable in between "you're" and "voices". Plus it makes sense with the context of the song.

    Or not, they show us that they don't need Sufjan in the foreground to make a new masterpiece :-).

    This band can't do wrong. Damn! "With my kid on my shoulders I try not the hurt anybody I like. But I don't have the drugs to sort, I don't have the drugs to sort it out."

    This is what he tends to sound like live, which I don't mind at all. Great feed in to Bloodbuzz Ohio.
