The New Pornographers

"Higher Beams"

[Verse 1]
Just out of frame, with a passenger’s name
Though you’re freight pulled behind
It was always a battle to arrive at the station alive
With all the bags to unpack
All the plans for the future to protect
Because we’ve come to expect the trains on time

[Verse 2]
A cloud of steam and we’re out of the gate
Not a fashionable late
Wearing long sleeves to hide the mark of Cain
Got it when I was young
Half eternal, half sung
Play a sour note long enough it’s right
And our finishing moves were fight or flight
The higher beams that temporarily blind
That change your mind

[Chorus]
Thank you
Thank you for nothing
I didn’t want in

[Verse 3]
Deep in the culture of fear
We all hate living here
But you know when you can’t afford to leave?
So you stay in the lines
Navigate the land mines
Should have gone for the guided tour
Got lost
I could see what we’ve crossed
I knew the cost
The higher beams that temporarily blind
That change your minds

[Chorus]
Thank you
Thank you for nothing
I didn’t want in

Thank you
Thank you for nothing
I didn’t want in

f*ck you
f*ck you for nothing
I didn’t want in

[Verse 4]
You lost your train
But you’re high on the fumes that are left in the room
When you dream of a team of higher beams
That temporarily blind
That change your mind
The higher beams that temporarily blind
That change your mind
That change your mind
That change your mind
That change your mind
