It's Called a "Kick"

So I have been listening to a lot of Arcade Fire lately, I love their jams, serious stuff. They are both musically and lyrically tight. When trying to explain this to my manager at Quest I wanted to sound somewhat cool and hip so I didn't say "I am listening to a lot of Arcade Fire right now", but rather used a strange array of words that said something like "I am totally on an Arcade Fire..." Then I didn't know what to say, my manager quickly filled in the blanks. "It's called a kick."

Anywho, I have been loving these guys! Check out the tune, you'll fall in love.

Arcade Fire - Wake Up + Lyrics


Somethin' filled up
my heart with nothin',
someone told me not to cry.

But now that I'm older,
my heart's colder,
and I can see that it's a lie.

Children wake up,
hold your mistake up,
before they turn the summer into dust.

If the children don't grow up,
our bodies get bigger but our hearts get torn up.
We're just a million little gods causin' rain storms turnin' every good thing to
rust.

I guess we'll just have to adjust.

With my lightnin' bolts a glowin'
I can see where I am goin' to be
when the reaper he reaches and touches my hand.

With my lightnin' bolts a glowin'
I can see where I am goin’
With my lightnin' bolts a glowin'
I can see where I am, go-go, where I am

You'd better look out below
