FSOTD: "Ready to Start" by Arcade Fire

So after hearing KH rave about Sprawl II and how life-altering their live show was, I decided to give Arcade Fire a try.

And I'm glad I did.

Ready to Start is now my theme song.  It moves my soul and makes my music heart happy.

Listen and love.



If the businessmen drink my blood
Like the kids in art school said they would
Then I guess I'll just begin again
You say, "can we still be friends?"

If I was scared, I would
And if I was bored, you know I would
And if I was yours, but I'm not


All the kids have always known
That the emperor wears no clothes
But they bow to down to him anyway
It's better than being alone

If I was scared, I would
And if I was bored, you know I would
And if I was yours, but I'm not

Now you're knocking at my door
Saying, "please come out with us tonight"
But I would rather be alone
Than pretend I feel alright


If the businessmen drink my blood
Like the kids in art school said they would
Then I guess I'll just begin again
You say, "can we still be friends?"

If I was scared, I would
And if I was pure, you know I would
And if I was yours, but I'm not

Now I'm ready to start

If I was scared, I would
And if I was pure, you know I would
And if I was yours, but I'm not

Now I'm ready to start
Now I'm ready to start

I would rather be wrong
Than live in the shadows of your song
My mind is open wide
And now I'm ready to start


Now I'm ready to start
My mind is open wide
And now I'm ready to start
And I'm sure you opened the door
To step out into the dark

Now I'm ready
