Arcade Fire - Windowsill Lyrics


I don't wanna hear the noises on TV
I don't want the salesmen coming after me
I don't wanna live in my father's house no more
I don't want it faster, I don't want it free
I don't wanna show you what they done to me
I don't wanna live in my father's house no more
I don't wanna choose black or blue
I don't wanna see what they done to you
I don't wanna live in my father's house no more
Because the tide is high
And it's rising still
And I don't wanna see it at my windowsill
I don't wanna give em my name and address
I don't wanna see what happens next
I don't wanna live in my father's house no more
I don't wanna live with my father's debt
You can't forgive what you can't forget
I don't wanna live in my father's house no more
I don't wanna fight in the holy war
I don't want the salesmen knocking at my door
I don't wanna live in America no more
Because the tide is high
And it's rising still
And I don't wanna see it at my windowsill
I don't wanna see it at my windowsill
I don't wanna see it at my windowsill
I don't wanna see it at my windowsill
MTV what have you done to me?
Save my soul, set me free
Set me free, what have you done to me?
I can't breathe, I can't see
World war three, when are you coming for me?
Been kicking up sparks to set the flames free
The windows are locked now, so what'll it be?
A house on fire or the rising sea?
Why is the night so still?
Why did I take the pill?
Because I don't wanna see it at my windowsill
I don't wanna see it at my windowsill
I don't wanna see it at my windowsill
I don't wanna see it at my windowsill
I don't wanna see it at my windowsill
(I don't wanna see it at my windowsill)
I don't wanna see it at my windowsill
(I don't wanna see it at my windowsill)
I don't wanna see it at my windowsill
(I don't wanna see it at my windowsill)
I don't wanna see it at my windowsill
(I don't wanna see it at my windowsill)
I don't wanna see it at my windowsill
(I don't wanna see it at my windowsill)
I don't wanna see it at my windowsill
(I don't wanna see it at my windowsill)
