The National

Sunday 05 June, 2011 at 9:01 am

The National has been a candidate for a feature for a while. Their lyrics are always great but it seemed like none of their melodies screamed: ‘feature me!’ (in case you’re wondering- each and every song that’s featured here is selected after much deliberation and hundreds of other songs that don’t make the cut). Eventually, Fake Empire solved the problem since it possesses that elusive lyric-melody combination that makes it “feature worthy”. It also has a super cool production (wait for the drums’ grand entrance. Awesome!). Keep it real, folks.

p.s. The vid you’re about to see is fan-made but a pretty damn good one!

Lyrics

Stay out super late tonight
Picking apples, making pies
Put a little something in our lemonade and take it with us
We’re half awake in a fake empire
We’re half awake in a fake empire

Tiptoe through our shiny city
With our diamond slippers on
Do our gay ballet on ice, bluebirds on our shoulders
We’re half awake in a fake empire
We’re half awake in a fake empire

Turn the light out, say goodnight
No thinking for a little while
Let’s not try to figure out everything at once
It’s hard to keep track of you falling through the sky
We’re half awake in a fake empire
We’re half awake in a fake empire
