Wolf Parade - Bang Your Drum lyrics

The dying light
Was nearly dead
By the time we reached the water's edge

We saw the river beating on the riverbank
For the way that it held every hard riverbed
It's cold, it's dirt, it's not for people with uneasy hearts

But if you're with me on the other side
Strike up the band, we have survived

Oh do they beat that drum to get you back home
Or do they beat it to keep you away

Don't be surprised at your regrets
Don't be surprised that the water made you wet
There's a shallow down river when the water will forgive you
Soft skin, your lukewarm beds

Follow me, follow me
Allow me to play the voyager

I'll try to keep you as dry as the hollowed out tree that you would be wrapped in
Another man's first

So take a dive
Take a dive
Take it out on the stepping stones that make the water rise
So take a dive
Oh take a dive

Take that hair
Out of your downed eyes
While the waves are rain
And the sun yellow pane

Do they beat the drum to get you back home
Or do they beat it to keep you away

Will you burn your bridges down
Singing la, la, la, la, la, la, la (x2)

Will you bang your drum to the blazing sound
Singing la, la, la, la, la, la, la
Will you turn away?
How can you turn away?
