The National

The National is an indie rock band formed in Cincinnati, Ohio in 1999 and currently based in Brooklyn, New York. The band's lyrics, which have been described as "dark, melancholy and difficult to interpret", are written and sung by Matt Berninger, a baritone. The rest of the band is composed of two pairs of brothers: twins Aaron (guitar and keyboard) and Bryce Dessner (guitar) and Scott (bass) and Bryan Devendorf (drums). The National has been compared to Joy Division, Leonard Cohen, Wilco and Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds. The name of the band was chosen because it "didn't mean anything" and was "benign and meaningless". more »

So happy I was invited
Gave me a reason to get out of the city
See you inside watching swarms on TV
Livin' and dyin' in New York, it means nothing to me
I gave my heart to the Army
The only sentimental thing I could think of
With cousins, and colors and somewhere overseas
But it'll take a better war to kill a college man like me

I'm too tired to drive anywhere, anyway right now
Do you care if I stay?
You can put on your bathing suits
And I'll try to find somethin' on this thing that means nothin' enough
Losin' my breath, do-do-do-do-do-do-do-do-do-do
Losin' my breath, do-do-do-do-do-do-do-do-do-do

You and your sister live in a Lemonworld
I want to sit in and die
You and your sister live in a Lemonworld
Do-do-do-do-do-do-do-do-do-do
You and your sister live in a Lemonworld
I want to sit in and die
You and your sister live in a Lemonworld
Do-do-do-do-do-do-do-do-do-do

This pricey stuff makes me dizzy
I guess I've always been a delicate man
Takes me a day to remember a day
I didn't mean to let it get so far out of hand
I was a comfortable kid
But I don't think about it much anymore
Lay me on the table, put flowers in my mouth
And we can say that we invented a summer lovin' torture party

I'm too tired to drive anywhere, anyway right now
Do you care if I stay?
You can put on your bathing suits
And I'll try to find something on this thing that means nothin' enough

You and your sister live in a Lemonworld
I want to sit in and die
You and your sister live in a Lemonworld
Do-do-do-do-do-do-do-do-do-do
You and your sister live in a Lemonworld
I want to sit in and die
You and your sister live in a Lemonworld
Do-do-do-do-do-do-do-do-do-do

Losin' my breath
Do-do-do-do-do-do-do
