The New Pornographers

"Opening Ceremony"

[Verse 1]
When we begin to reconstruct events, it lends itself to legend, yes
The amount of love that goes into the sets is very obvious
In this scale model, ship in bottle, swinging from the scaffolding
As the bottle’s breaking on the bow, the shatter of the christening

[Chorus]
It’s one hell of an opening ceremony
It’s one hell of an opening ceremony
Just sell it as, sell it as ceremony
Just sell it as, sell it as ceremony

[Verse 2]
We’re living on this junket, drunk and on the clock, life at the top, can’t knock it
Might as well be chasing what we’re tasting, since we’re going stupid fast
In this scale model, ship in bottle, swinging from a hidden flask
Like a sweetheart in a locket, like the man inside the iron mask

[Chorus]
It’s one hell of an opening ceremony
It’s one hell of an opening ceremony
Just sell it as, sell it as ceremony
Just sell it as, sell it as ceremony

[Verse 3]
When your ship comes in, begin your journey back into the swirling sea
Hanging from the mast, stick out your chest, and take in all its majesty
What would be the point of living well without the promised member perks?
Never book your farewell tour unless the reunion is in the works

[Chorus]
Then sell ‘em an opening ceremony
Then sell ‘em an opening ceremony
Let’s sell it as, sell it as ceremony
Let's sell it as, sell it as ceremony
