  • Arcade Fire - "Sprawl II (Mountains Beyond Mountains)"

    51,133 views 6 years ago
    One of my favorite songs from the amazing album The Suburbs by Arcade Fire.

    I tried to convey the theme of the music and the lyrics in sets of evocative images that turn them into a woman's personal and intimate debate between the the large city she inhabits and the small hometown her soul lives in.

    Traté de expresar el tema de la música y las letras en una serie de imágenes evocativas que las convierten el debate íntimo y personal de una mujer entre la grande ciudad que habita y su pequeño pueblo natal en donde su alma vive.

    These are the lyrics to the song / Esta es la letra de la canción:

    They heard me singing and they told me to stop
    Quit these pretentious things and just punch the clock
    These days my life, I feel it has no purpose
    But late at night the feelings swim to the surface

    'Cause on the surface the city lights shine
    They're calling at me, come and find your kind
    Sometimes I wonder if the World's so small
    That we can never get away from the sprawl
    Living in the sprawl
    Dead shopping malls rise like mountains beyond mountains
    And there's no end in sight
    I need the darkness, someone please cut the lights

    We rode our bikes to the nearest park
    Sat under the swings and kissed in the dark
    We shield our eyes from the police lights
    We run away, but we don't know why

    On the black river, the city lights shine
    They're screaming at us, we don't need your kind
    Sometimes I wonder if the world's so small
    That we can never get away from the sprawl
    Living in the sprawl
    Dead shopping malls rise like mountains beyond mountains
    And there's no end in sight
    I need the darkness, someone please cut the lights

    They heard me singing and they told me to stop
    Quit these pretentious things and just punch the clock
    Sometimes I wonder if the world's so small
    Can we ever get away from the sprawl?
    Living in the sprawl
    Dead shopping malls rise like mountains beyond mountains
    And there's no end in sight
    I need the darkness, someone please cut the lights
    I need the darkness, someone please cut the lights Show less
