Mistaken for Strangers

Mood/Music Monday

Yesterday, I viewed the rockumentary Mistaken for Strangers, a film which follows the indie rock back The National. The concept can be best described as if Zach Galifianakis had a brother who was the frontman for an indie band, and he made a movie about it. It was one of the most refreshing, fascinating films I've seen in a while, and whether you're a fan of the band or not, I think you'd have a good time.

But they don't stay
I get secrets at night
But they go away

Come along use your timid tongue
Too shy to tell your story

But she's a snarl tooth seether

Something big is gonna happen
Over my dead body

Wouldn't you love to be
On the cover of a magazine?
Healthy skin and perfect teeth
Designed to hide what lies beneath

Make up something to believe in
Your heart of hearts
So you have something to wear
On your sleeve of sleeves

If I could start again
A million miles away
I would keep myself
I would find a way

I'm comfortable apart
It's all written on my chart
And I take what's given me
Most cooperatively

Why stand on a silent platform?
Fight the war
F/ck the norm
