Hop Along - What The Writer Meant Lyrics




Gold, alone
Clinging to a stem
Pretty soon this will be a skeleton
Metropolises before
Silent and smouldering
Above the wild giant wailed
Never will I do that again

So strange (so strange, so strange)
To be shaped by such strange men
Elizabeth explain what the writer meant

That God is the one (God is the one, God is the one) who changed
(God is the one, God is the one, God is the one who changed)

The General
Buck toothed, bright eyed
Frothing red
Baltimore, you on the floor
Me on the edge of the bed
We saw him in one brutal gesture tear that rabbit open
And you turned to me, "Isn't this supposed to be for children?"

So strange (so strange, so strange)
To be shaped by such strange moments
Elizabeth, the train
When will I see you again?

Will you tell me your mind (tell me your mind, tell me that your mind) has changed?
(Tell me your mind, tell me that your mind has changed)

So strange
Was I shaped for just this moment?
Elizabeth, explain what the writer meant

Hop Along What The Writer Meant Comments
  1. Gurt McDirt

    Improv4Humanz brought me here.

  2. Ollie w

    The part at 3:17 gives me goosebumps everytime. The different approaches she has singing each sentence is amazing, so much talent.

  3. Ollie w

    Fav song off the album, anyone else's?

  4. Daniel Healy

    I listen to this song 20x per day in my car.

  5. Known Unkowns

    Anyone else hear 'Enter Sandman' for a split second at the beginning? :P

  6. Little Bigfoot

    This entire song is excellent, but the groove at 1:53 is particularly sublime. It's great to hear electric piano again, too. I always loved the original Sister Cities for that reason, as good as the Painted Shut version is.

  7. Nick Torres

    brilliant

  8. Helen Evans

    Can I just fangirl for a moment that the first line of Look of Love is "Jane Austen in the hospital", and here Elizabeth from Pride and Prejudice is constantly being asked to explain? Argh, this album is so good!!

  9. Luna Williams

    I can't wait for the concert in may!!!! I'll see you guys in atlanta!!!!! So excited 😆😆😆

    YOU GUYS NEVER CEASE TO AMAZE ME I'M LOSING IT
