The National – Gospel lyrics

I got two armfuls of magazines for you
I'll bring em over
So hang your holiday rainbow lights in the garden
Hang your holiday rainbow lights in the garden and I'll
I'll bring a nice icy drink to you

Let me come over I can waist your time I'm bored
Invite me to the war every night of the summer
And we'll play G. I. Blood, G. I. Blood
We'll stand by the pool
We'll through out our golden arms

Darlin can you tie my string
Killers are callin on me
My angel face is fallin
Feathers are fallin on my feet
Darlin can you tie my string
Killers are callin on me

Stay near your, stay near your television
Set it up outside
And hang your holiday rainbow lights in the garden
Hang your holiday rainbow lights in the garden and I'll
I'll bring a nice icy drink to you

Let me come over I can waist your time I'm bored
Invite me to the war every night of the summer
And we'll play G. I. Blood, G. I. Blood
We'll stand by the pool
We'll through out our golden arms

Darlin can you tie my string
Killers are callin on me
My angel face is fallin
Feathers are fallin on my feet
My angel face is fallin
Feathers are fallin on my feet
Darlin can you tie my string
Killers are callin on me
Darlin can you tie my string
Killers are callin on me

    I think this song is pretty simple. The singer has found a woman who can make him feel normal now. She "tied his string" and made him at least part of the man he wished he was. Before she was there he was probably in a very dark place as shown by "killers are callin on me and feathers are falling on my feet" that second line is also in the song karen after he says "blackbirds are circling my bed" so overall there's a lot of darkness and dread in this man's head and he finally feels some peace in life being with this person. She's his gospel for living life now.
