Death Cab For Cutie - Long Division Lyrics




His head was a city
Of paper buildings
And the echoes that remained
Of old friends and lovers
Their features bleeding
Together in his brain

And once it started was harder to
Tell them apart

He was always distracted
By the very mention
Of an open door
'Cause he had sworn not to be what he'd been before

To be a remain remain remain remainder [x2]

The television was snowing softly
As she hunted for her keys
She said she never envisioned him the type of person capable of such deceit

And they carried on like long division
And it was clear with every page
That they were further away from a solution that would play

Without a remain remain remain remainder [x4]

He had sworn not to be what he'd been before

To be the remain remain remain remainder [x6]

    Dat moment when ur singing and ur parents tell you that you're screaming with no rhythm whatsoever.

  8. Alice Does Stuff

    Exactly how it is when you learn a new lesson in school.

    His head was a city
    Of paper buildings
    And the echoes that remained
    Of old friends and lovers
    Their features bleeding
    Together in his brain
    And once it started was harder to
    Tell them apart
    He was always distracted
    By the very mention
    Of an open door
    'Cause he had sworn not to be what he'd been before
    To be a remain remain remain remainder
    The television was snowing softly
    As she hunted for her keys
    She said she never envisioned him the type of person capable of such deceit
    And they carried on like long division
    And it was clear with every page
    That they were further away from a solution that would play
    Without a remain remain remain remainder
    He had sworn not to be what he'd been before
    To be the remain remain remain remainder

    so far, i like this song the best on this cd.

    I can't listen to narrow stairs without seeing deeper meaning. Just looking at the titles paints a picture. Grapevine and Bixby canyon are both SoCal, active faults, no sunlight, ice thinner, sun changes, earth changes. 3 or 4 of the songs are "ruined Plans" thematic continuations, but failures for example to follow one's loved one into the dark, or a missing brother from a hotel bed, leaving a Remainder. Ask me to pick a favorite and I implore you to tell me how I could, when they are all one work of art.
