Arcade Fire – The Year Is lyrics

I see the lightning almost every day
I've stopped pretending it's a bird of prey

My little brother's got a strange disease
He gives a name to everything he sees

Abc, Do re mi, kkk, naacp
Usa, doa, nyc, rip

We heard the thunder on your daddy's farm
Your momma said it was a fire alarm
The neighbors heard it and they started to run
We were deciding what to name our son

Lets call that son of a bitch

Abc, Do re mi, kkk, naacp
Usa, doa, nyc, rip

The years is...(shout out any year that comes into your head, it's all the dark
