Arcade Fire - Speaking In Tongues Lyrics




Hypocrite reader,
My double, my brother

Your daddy really took it out of you

But did he speak it in tongues?
But did he speak it in tongues?

Sneaking out the windows now

You've got the spirit now

Hypocrite reader,
My double, my brother

Where did we lose our way?

It's like we're speaking in tongues
It's like we're speaking in tongues

Sneaking out the windows now

You've got the spirit now
You've got the spirit now
You've got the spirit now

Hypocrite reader,
My double, my brother

Now I can't understand a word

Now you're speaking in tongues
(Speaking in tongues)
Now you're speaking in tongues
(Speaking in tongues)
Now you're speaking in tongues
(Speaking in tongues)
Now you're speaking in tongues
(Speaking in tongues)

Come out of your head
And into my world now

Come out of your head
And into my world, my world, my world now

(Speaking in tongues)
(To end)

  7. Gregory Bryant

    Ironic that this track was removed from the album on Spotify recently. The kind of corporate shenanigan Arcade Fire would be critical of.

    SpookTroop

    least its back on now

    This just makes me tear up as I know there may be a disconnection between people I care about in the further future. I love my friends to death. It's hard for me to bare through this whole song before even wanting to hop on my bike just to hang out with my friends just so I can get rid of the impact this song has left in my mind.

    Sam Murphy

    lol u r bent

  13. James Byrne

    Is David Byrne playing the triangle on this track?

    Sam Murphy

    yurrrrrrrrrrrrrrttttts

    Martin Kraemer

    It's his typical triangle-vibe, I think it's more than possible

    Samuel Rummer

    Actually, it was the cowbell!

  14. Paul Boubion

  19. Vic plays

    Great song !!

  20. Adán AR

    This album is so good, full of emotions and experiences. For a young band like them, they do excellent quality music.

    Sam Murphy

    get fucked in the ass and tell me about being full of emotionz

    lol

    Frankie Shane

    @Sam Murphy sounds as though you know from experience

  21. Hexis

    Fascinating.

  22. Sergio Guerrero

    one of the few songs that make me feel a lump in the throat

    Kantasan

    Empty room also gives you this feeling

    John Arr

    It makes me think of that awful feeling of drifting from family and having at odds beliefs

  23. Francesco G

    wow how have I never heard this before. beautiful.

  24. Emiliano Ortega-Guerrero

    the soundtrack our lives... rock n roll yeah

    Emiliano Ortega-Guerrero

    +Emiliano Ortega-Guerrero INDIE ROCK AWESOME

  25. Juan Manuel Sosa

    this is like the Johnnie Walker Blue Label of music.

  26. Maggie Biggerstaff

    Come out of your head and into my world

  27. Tom Fowkes

    One of life's greatest mystery's will always be how this song didn't make it onto the album

    Liza veronica

    +Juan Manuel Sosa es verdad si es por la letra podria estar en Neon Bible, las letras de ese disco tienen un rollo con la familia y la religión

    Josh Pugsley

    +Juan Manuel Sosa It's on the deluxe version of the album and I don't see how it doesn't fit the concept of The Suburbs?

    Tor Parsons

    +Juan Manuel Sosa True, "The Suburbs" was intended as a conceptual story about life in the suburbs. That may be the reason, but to me this song sounds like it fits into the story. I think it would go well between "City With No Children" and "Half-Light I": in "Empty Room" Régine's character declares that she is leaving Win's character; in "City With No Children" Win laments her loss; in this song she returns to the suburbs where Win lives and elopes with him; in "Half-Light I" they walk through the streets of the town at night, on their way back east, and lament how much it has changed; in "Half-Light II" they head back east to find a town where they can live.

    Anderson Machado

    It could attract too much attacks from churches

    Sam Murphy

    lol i dno

    lol
