"Deep Blue" by Arcade Fire

Here in my place and time
And here in my own skin I can finally begin
Let the century pass me by, standing under a night sky
Tomorrow means nothing

I was only a child then
Feeling barely alive when I heard a song from a speaker of a passing car
Been praying to a dying star
The memory’s fading
I can almost remember singing

La, la, la, la, la, la, la, la
La, la, la, la, la, la, la, la

We watched the end of the century
Compressed on a tiny screen
A dead star collapsing and we could see that
Something was ending
Are you through pretending
We saw the signs in the suburbs?

You could have never predict it, that it could see through you
Kasparov – Deep Blue 1996
Your mind’s playing tricks now
Show is over so take a bow
We’re living in the shadow of…

La, la, la, la, la, la, la, la
La, la, la, la, la, la, la, la

Hey. Put the cellphone down for a while
In the night there is something wild
Can you hear it breathing?
And hey.
Put the laptop down for a while
In the night there is something wild
I feel it, it’s leaving me
