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 »

It's too long to wait around for everyone to decide
I'm off to the promised land if anyone needs a ride
It's a small car but we'll fit inside if we leave our bags behind
We'll entertain ourselves just watching the world go by

Is something wrong?
You don't look like you're having fun
The road is long
Gotta let go the things you love

We prefer good love to go
And the remains of rock & roll
When the moment's right
In the middle of the night
We can almost see the way to go

So long to everyone 'cause they don't know who we are
Turn on your sorry but you have to break their hearts
Sister you're old enough to take the wheel and drive
Your hands, your heart, your eyes, you made me realize

I hear your call
All of my senses are turned on
We're on our own
Suddenly earth is far below

We good your love to go
And the remains of rock & roll
When the moment's right
In the middle of the night
We can almost see the way to go

Can't you see me floating forwards backwards
Won't you lend a hand and help me out
Here beyond the doorstep knocking knocking
Won't you lend a hand and help me out
