Lookout kid, trust your heart
You don't have to play the part they wrote for you
Just be true
There are things that you could do
That no one else on earth could ever do
But I can't teach you, I can't teach it to you

Lookout kid, trust your mind
But you can't trust it everytime
You know it plays tricks on you
And it don't give a damn if you are happy or you're sad
But if you've lost it, don't feel bad
'Cause it's alright to be sad

Do-do-do-do, do-do-do-do
Do-do, do-do, do-do, do-do-do-do
Do-do-do-do, do-do-do-do
Do-do, do-do, do-do, do-do-do-do
Do-do-do-do, do-do-do-do
Do-do-do-do, do-do-do-do
Do-do-do-do

Lookout kid, trust your body
You can dance, and you can shake
Things will break, you make mistakes
You lose your friends, again and again
'Cause nothing is ever perfect
No one's perfect
Let me say it again: no one's perfect
Right

A lifetime of skinned knees
And heartbreak comes so easy
But a life without pain would be boring

And if you feel it, it's fine
I give you everything that's mine
I give you my heart and my precious time

Do-do-do-do, do-do-do-do
Do-do, do-do, do-do-do-do-do

Lookout kid, trust your soul
It ain't hard to rock n' roll
You know how to move your hips
And you know God is cool with it
Some people want the rock without the roll
But we all know, there's no God without soul
Right

A lifetime of skinned knees
And heartbreak comes so easily
But a life without you
Would be boring for someone like me

And if you feel it, it's fine
I give you everything that's mine
I give you my heart and my precious time
(Precious time)
(I'll give you everything)
I give you my heart and my precious time

Do-do-do-do, do-do-do-do
Do-do, do-do, do-do-do-do-do

Unconditional
It's unconditional
It's unconditional
No matter what you do
It's unconditional (Unconditional)
It's unconditional (Unconditional)
Unconditonal (No matter what you do)
It's unconditional (Unconditional)

I think this might go to an 8 for me. Good one.
Seems like this new album is going on the shopping list.  A nice surprise from these guys...they haven't really grabbed my attention since Neon Bible...
I work on the TV broadcast of The Juno Awards (which is the Canadian Grammy Awards for our US friends) and we had Arcade Fire close the live show (3 days ago, May 15, 2022) with this song and they had a local youth steel-drum group play with them on-stage -- it was an great way to finish the show!
Nice!
Liking this more than the other tune - Lightening - for sure.
Interesting! This is quite a divergence from their recent direction (Reflektor / Everything Now, particularly). Lyrically, it kind of reminds me of a Cloud Cult song -- it seems to have an underlying optimism to it. I like it a lot!
Class, as always! 
Good to hear some new AF material.
Hooray for new Arcade Fire - and thanks for the preview, Bill & Rebecca. 
Wow, a new Arcade Fire album! Thanks, RP!
It is May 4th now, so back to the future. Thanks, RP. =)
