Arcade Fire – Apocrypha lyrics
You officers that are stationed in front of the stage behind the barricade
You will go to Mr. Maury Shapiro, the first aid man
and he will furnish you with earplugs
So as to keep you from having a headache
If he runs out of earplugs, he has got some cotton
We will not allow any dancing, running up and down the aisle
Is that clear with everybody?

'Cause I don't wanna be born, born again
But not right now, cause don't take me
Yeah but god said "Son, it's time to go
And when you'll return, I don't know just yet"
But even stars, they die, when they get old
The precious ones that we used to know
So if you gon' shoot then hit your mark
Send that arrow, send it through my heart
My heart

He said "This time I won't get turned away
This time I won't get turned away
This time I won't get turned away"

She said "But Joan of Arc, a walk in the dark"
She said "I've seen how the world ends
First they love you, then they kill you
Then they love you again, and again again"

She said
"This time I won't get turned away
This time I won't get turned away
This time I won't get turned away"

She said
"This time I won't get turned away
This time I won't get turned away
This time I won't get turned away"

Jesus Christ, what did you do
To deserve what they done to you?
Jesus Christ, what did you do
To deserve what they done to you?

Downtown, see what we got
We got the riot
Oh come on downtown, see what we got
We got the riot
We know something ain't right
We know something ain't right
I said, "Come on downtown, see what we got
We got the riot
We got a riot."

Hahaha ha ha Arcade Fire ladies and gentlemen!
Wow! That was great
We didn't upset him, was that part of the show or was he?
You look gorgeous as well, don't often see an attractive woman playing the hurdy-gurdy well done!
