Broken Bells

Broken Bells is an American indie rock band composed of artist-producer Brian Burton (better known as Danger Mouse) and James Mercer, the lead vocalist and guitarist for the indie rock band The Shins. Broken Bells compose and create as a duo, but are joined by a full band on tour. The live band included Conor Oberst and the Mystic Valley Band sidemen Nate Walcott and Nik Freitas, and Jonathan Hischke and Dan Elkan, both ex-members of Hella. Following the success of their first self-titled album, Broken Bells, Mercer and Burton announced intentions to record a follow-up, and released a new EP, Meyrin Fields, on March 29, 2011. more »

So tell me where it hurts
Do those stunts prove anything
I doubt that I believe that anyone is doing it

Darling read this from a book
But you're the one you're hurting
No no

Safe this from distraction
Polishing all these severed hands
Oblivion is nice
'Til it bites you in the ass

Up in your role
Without a single clue
The riddle of name
In every poison arrow end

Twilight hours on a hook
With no money burning
No no

I gotta desert you
Quietly slide out your back door
The vertigo is nice
But it makes it hard to dance

Guess you want to win a prize
Company odds exchange this night
Losing it all again ain't wise

Whoa, wait
She said that I record
I got shift than I deserve
Look back from anything, but
The question is simple
Why not be smiling ?
No no

What did it hurt ?
Leaving it all to happenstance
One of these nights
When I can't get settled down

What did it hurt ?
Leaving it all to happenstance
One of these nights
When I can't get settled down
When I can't get settled down
