Vampire Weekend – Harmony Hall lyrics
[Verse 1]
We took a vow in summertime
Now we find ourselves in late December

I believe that New Year's Eve
Will be the perfect time
For their great surrender
But they don't remember

[Pre-Chorus]
Anger wants a voice
Voices wanna sing
Singers harmonize
Till they can't hear anything
Thought that I was free
From all that questioning
But every time a problem ends
Another one begins

[Chorus]
And the stone walls of Harmony Hall bear witness
Anybody with a holy mind can never forgive the sight
Of wicked snakes inside a place you thought was dignified
I don't wanna live like this, but I don't wanna die
I don't wanna live like this, but I don't wanna die

[Verse 2]
Within the halls of power lies
A nervous heart that beats
Like a young pretender's
Beneath these velvet gloves I hide
The shameful crooked ends
Of money lender
'Cause I still remember

[Pre-Chorus]
Anger wants a voice
Voices wanna sing
Singers harmonize
Till they can't hear anything
Thought that I was free
From all that questioning
But every time a problem ends
Another one begins

[Chorus]
And the stone walls of Harmony Hall bear witness
Anybody with a holy mind can never forgive the sight
Of wicked snakes inside a place you thought was dignified
I don't wanna live like this, but I don't wanna die
I don't wanna live like this, but I don't wanna die

[Instrumental]

[Chorus]
And the stone walls of Harmony Hall bear witness
Anybody with a holy mind can never forgive the sight
Of wicked snakes inside a place you thought was dignified
I don't wanna live like this, but I don't wanna die

[Outro]
I don't wanna live like this, but I don't wanna die
And the stone walls of Harmony Hall bear witness
Anybody with a holy mind can never forgive the sight
Of wicked snakes inside a place you thought was dignified
I don't wanna live like this, but I don't wanna die
