Music that moves me 12.24.14

So I’m just sitting here on my day off, catching up on news, checking out social media…that kinda thing (yes, I’m fully prepared to be depressed about the state of humanity). In the background, I have Pandora set to alternative radio (for a short time I had the radio blaring away Xmas music, but damn, I’m sick of religious-themed Christmas music…there are a lot of us non-theists and many of us sure would like to have some non-theistic holiday music to listen to…hmmm, maybe I’ll go looking for some). Next thing I know, I’m jamming to a song I’ve not heard of before.  ‘Flaws‘, it’s called.  By an English band called Bastille.  It’s pretty darned cool.

Lyrics:

When all of your flaws and all of my flaws
Are laid out one by one
A wonderful part of the mess that we made
We pick ourselves undone

All of your flaws and all of my flaws
They lie there hand in hand
Ones we’ve inherited, ones that we learned
They pass from man to man

There’s a hole in my soul
I can’t fill it I can’t fill it
There’s a hole in my soul
Can you fill it? Can you fill it?

You have always worn your flaws upon your sleeve
And I have always buried them deep beneath the ground
Dig them up; let’s finish what we’ve started
Dig them up, so nothing’s left unturned

All of your flaws and all of my flaws,
When they have been exhumed
We’ll see that we need them to be who we are
Without them we’d be doomed

There’s a hole in my soul
I can’t fill it I can’t fill it
There’s a hole in my soul
Can you fill it? Can you fill it?

You have always worn your flaws upon your sleeve
And I have always buried them deep beneath the ground
Dig them up; let’s finish what we’ve started
Dig them up, so nothing’s left unturned

Oooooh
Oooooh

When all of your flaws
And all of my flaws are counted
When all of your flaws
And all of my flaws are counted

You have always worn your flaws upon your sleeve
And I have always buried them deep beneath the ground
Dig them up. Let’s finish what we’ve started
Dig them up. So nothing’s left unturned

Oooooh
Oooooh

All of your flaws and all of my flaws
Are laid out one by one
Look at the wonderful mess that we made
We pick ourselves undone

(and of course I just found out that this is the same band that performs ‘Pompeii’, which I like as well)
