Soundtrack

When I read the news these days –usually with a mixture of horror, sadness, anger, and, more often than I should admit, a kind of base amusement– I can’t help imagining the Arcade Fire playing in the background.

In particular today, the song “Windowsill” from Neon Bible.

MTV what have you done to me?
Save my soul, set me free
Set me free, what have you done to me?
I can’t breathe, I can’t see
World war three, when are you coming for me?
Been kicking up sparks to set the flames free
The windows are locked now, so what’ll it be?
A house on fire or the rising sea?
