    Firstly I think theory of the crows is a lovely song, just like any other by the national.
    I guess what captures me, is really the drowsiness of it all. It seems like the members are very. Worn. And ready to give in. The lyrics "traded my daylight for a career" focuses on the never ending cycle that having jobs usually means. Also, "will someone review my salary please? " so I guess my interpretation of the song is having to grow up and making sacrifices to try to be on top, but really. Getting nowhere.
