Harmony Hall

Album: Father of the Bride (2019)
  • We took a vow in summertime
    Now we find ourselves in late December
    I believe that New Year's Eve
    Will be the perfect time
    For their great surrender
    But they don't remember

    Anger wants a voice
    Voices wanna sing
    Singers harmonize
    'Til they can't hear anything
    Thought that I was free
    From all that questioning
    But every time a problem ends
    Another one begins

    And the stone walls of Harmony Hall bear witness
    Anybody with a worried mind can never forgive the sight
    Of wicked snakes inside a place you thought was dignified
    I don't wanna live like this, but I don't wanna die
    (Ooh ooh ooh ooh)
    I don't wanna live like this, but I don't wanna die

    Within the halls of power lies
    A nervous heart that beats
    Like a Young Pretender's
    Beneath these velvet gloves I hide
    The shameful crooked hands
    Of a money lender
    'Cause I still remember

    Anger wants a voice
    Voices wanna sing
    Singers harmonize
    'Til they can't hear anything
    Thought that I was free
    From all that questioning
    But every time a problem ends
    Another one begins

    And the stone walls of Harmony Hall bear witness
    Anybody with a worried mind can never forgive the sight
    Of wicked snakes inside a place you thought was dignified
    I don't wanna live like this, but I don't wanna die
    (Ooh ooh ooh ooh)
    I don't wanna live like this, but I don't wanna die

    And the stone walls of Harmony Hall bear witness
    Anybody with a worried mind can never forgive the sight
    Of wicked snakes inside a place you thought was dignified
    I don't wanna live like this, but I don't wanna die

    (Ooh ooh ooh ooh)

    I don't wanna live like this, but I don't wanna die
    And the stone walls of Harmony Hall bear witness
    Anybody with a worried mind can never forgive the sight
    Of wicked snakes inside a place you thought was dignified
    I don't wanna live like this, but I don't wanna die Writer/s: Ariel Zvi Rechtshaid, Ezra Koenig
