Songs

Broken Bells' two albums total twenty songs. Some songs that I particularly enjoy are "After the Disco", "The Changing Lights", "Control", "Medicine", "Lazy Wonderland", "Sailing to Nowhere", "Mongrel Heart", "The High Road", "The Ghost Inside", and "Your Head Is On Fire".

Sailing to Nowhere

Tomorrow I sail the world 
Lovin, more than I know with blood on my hands 
Wouldn't know, you're a devious sister 
Guts on your blouse 
Close your old ways 

And diamonds a dozen 
Sailing to nowhere 
They burn and float on 
Still we move on through the night 

Boiling systems 
Drain the lot 
They go down by their hearts 
One by one 
Long to find 
A way up 
Following the ghost down 

Running in circles 
A mouse on the table 
I try to feel, I just don't 
Hurtin' and dead inside 
Go on and cut 'em in half 
Said I
After the Disco

After your faith has let you down
I know you'll want to run around
And follow the crowd into the night
But after the disco 
All of the shine just faded away
Oh oh oh oh
Do what you want
Do what you will
Don't tell me it's not our time

Cause I'm 
Waiting here much too long and
Don't assume 
That I need your love
The chill of night has got you dancing away
And I'm 
Not the dreamer or the dream you're 
Out there looking for

How did I get in this winding maze of love?
And there's something wrong and it's sending you
Round and round 'til we go nowhere

I see the ashes on the ground
I know the world is burning down
And under the cold and empty moon
But after the disco 
All of the shine just faded away
Oh oh oh oh
Do what you want
Do what you will
But you can't hide
Oh oh oh oh
Do what you want
Do what you will
Don't tell me it's not our time

Cause I'm 
Waiting here much too long and
Don't assume 
That I need your love
The chill of night has got you dancing away
And I'm 
Not the dreamer or the dream you're 
Out there looking for

How did I get in this winding maze of love?
And there's something wrong and it's sending you
Round and round 'til we go nowhere

The High Road

We're bound to wait all night
She's bound to run amok
Invested enough in it anyhow,
To each his own...
The Garden needs sorting out
She curls her lips on the bow
And I don't know if I'm dead or not
To anyone...

Come on and get the minimum
Before you open up your eyes,
This army has so many heads
To analyze...
Come on and get your overdose
Collect it at the borderline
And they want to get up in your head...

[Chorus:]
Cause they know and so do I
The high road is hard to find
A detour to your new life
Tell all of your friends goodbye

The dawn to end all nights
That's all we hoped it was
A break form the warfare in your house
To each his own...
A soldier is bailing out
He curled his lips on the barrel
And I don't know if the dead can talk
To anyone...

Come on and get the minimum
Before you open up your eyes
This army has so many hands
Are you one of us?
Come on and get your overdose
Collect it at the borderline
And they want to get up in your head

[Chorus:]
Cause they know and so do I
The high road is hard to find
A detour to your new life
Tell all of your friends goodbye

It's too late to change your mind
You let loss be your guide...

It's too late to change your mind
You let loss be your guide...

It's too late to change your mind
You let loss be your guide...

It's too late to change your mind
You let loss be your guide...
