Sleeping is giving in, no matter what the time is
Sleeping is giving in, so lift those heavy eyelids
People say that you'll die faster than without water
But we know it's just a lie, scare your son, scare your daughter
People say that your dreams are the only things that save you
Come on, baby, in our dreams, we can live our misbehavior

Every time you close your eyes (lies, lies)
Every time you close your eyes (lies, lies)
Every time you close your eyes (lies, lies)
Every time you close your eyes (lies, lies)
Every time you close your eyes
Every time you close your eyes
Every time you close your eyes
Every time you close your eyes

People try and hide the night underneath the covers
People try and hide the light underneath the covers
Come on, hide your lovers underneath the covers
Come on, hide your lovers underneath the covers
Hiding from your brothers underneath the covers
Come on, hide your lovers underneath the covers
People say that you'll die faster than without water
But we know it's just a lie, scare your son, scare your daughter
Scare your son, scare your daughter, scare your son, scare your daughter

Now here's the sun, it's alright (lies, lies)
Now here's the moon, it's alright (lies, lies)
Now here's the sun, it's alright (lies, lies)
Now here's the moon, it's alright (lies, lies)
Every time you close your eyes (lies, lies)
Every time you close your eyes (lies, lies)
Every time you close your eyes (lies, lies)
Every time you close your eyes (lies, lies)

Every time you close your eyes
Every time you close your eyes (lies, lies)

Pleasantly surprised how excellent their live show at Lollapalooza was in 2017.  This song was particularly good on a beautiful night.
Yay!!! {#Bananasplit}{#Bananajumprope}{#Dancingbanana}

LOVE it! Thanks Bill :) 
Repetitious to the point of annoying.

We can add "monotonic" to the list of words you use incorrectly.

What a bum way to start the new year!

The band plays monotonic, muted, boring, repetitive, predictable songs. They have so many members in the band, you would expect more creativity.
FYI: Last night I watched the Rolling Stones 1969 BBC live, studio concert, Rock n Roll Circus show.

Oh my God! The Stones were at their best. The Who was at their best. Jethro Tull was at their best. Guest appearances by Clapton, Taj Mahal, John Lennon. The bombastic/creative/fun vibe was intoxicating.

This is what set the standard for live RnR and blew your socks off. Its so sad to see so many bands today, that can't even get on the same stage with those bands. They just don't have the chops.  

 
Leaving aside your thoughts on Arcade Fire's level of talent or quality of music, your last paragraph above is wrong on several levels.

The idea that "the standard for live RnR" is several HOF bands/artists playing at their best is an impossible bar to reach and would seem to imply that, if other bands can't reach that, they aren't worth watching. Standing before a stage and listening to quality musicians is pretty awesome; you don't have to be the best. Never mind saying that "so many bands today" (I'm guessing the bottom 90-95-99% of musicians) can't match the best - no shit. But the top group probably could and you're comparing them against the best of their contemporaries in the late sixties. There was a lot of dross back then, too, we just don't try to compare them against the best of today.

As well as trying to compare great bands that you first heard in your formative years against a solidly-good band from today. Old baseball players were known to exaggerate the abilities of those who played before them & diminish those after; "You throw pretty hard there, Bob Feller, but you are not even close to as fast as the first pitcher I ever faced, Willie Slowasallhell." Rock music was still fairly new and novel and generally simpler back then.The expectations for artists today are higher than they were back then. Plus you're essentially comparing the entirety of those bands' careers & their respective legends against the here & now of today's musicians.

Am I trying to imply that Arcade Fire is the equal of The Rolling Stones? No, but they aren't one of the best bands around; those bands might be, though.

The problem with this band is that there have 9 or 10 people in it, but such little output.

There are power trios, that put these guys to shame.

RP unworthy

 

annoying, silly no  musical/cultural value just  mainstream 

within the delicate musical flow of RP this is like the serving of a tin of ravioli during a gourmet dinner prepared by a sublime Chief in a marvellous restaurant.

 

 

take it off the playlist please...

 

now go ahead and bash on me  - but if you listen regular to RP - the Quality of this song is not holding up to the standard of the station

in the end it's just a matter of taste i know - so no insulting intended by this post - just express my irritation...

 

 

 


The lyrics should be:

Do you like le post'-rock?
Yes, I like le post'-rock.
Even le Of Montreal?
Yes le Of Montreal.
Godspeed You! Black
Emperor?
Certainemant ze Emperor!
Un Arcade Fire du zut allors?
Oui! allor le Arcade Fire.

(Note: I know no French or Quebecois, and am at best a horrid Anglophone.)
I know that fellow Canadians always tend to glorify anything Canadian musically or otherwise, almost to the level of annoyance, like this band for example from Montreal. Can't bring myself to like them no matter where they're from, listen to fellow Montrealer "Sam Roberts" new track "Fiend" and some of his earlier stuff "Brother Down" for example...much better in my mind.  But what do I know, took me 20 years to like Montrealer Leonard Cohen. I won't be requesting Celine Dion anytime soon....gag 
Got me boppin. Made me look 'em up. That's the point probably.
