Old Soul Song (for The New World Order) - Bright Eyes

Gray light, new day leaks through the window
And an old song comes on the alarm clock radio
We walk the forty blocks to the middle
Of the place we heard that everything would be
And there were barricades to keep us off the street
But the crowd kept pushing forward
Until they swallowed the police
Ya they went wild

We left before the dust had time to settle
Now all the broken glass swept off the avenue
And on the way home held your camera like a bible
Just wishing so bad that it held some kind of truth
And I stood nervous next to you in the dark room
You dropped the paper in the water
And it all begins to blue
Ya they go wild

And just when I get so lonesome I cant speak
I see some flowers on the hillside
Like the wars on TV
Ya they go wild
