He gave me a lot of great things while we were together, including this band. Wherever he is now, I just hope he is doing fine and as glad as I am for what we had.

The original 80's punk rock feel. Reminds me of the Breakfast club!

I feel like this song is saying, despite the hardships in life, you're not alone. By "don't swallow the cap", don't kill yourself.
This is the kind of song you spend your life searching for.

If you like the national, you'll love the static jacks. I highly recommend becoming obsessed with the static jacks, as well. :)

I often feel like I was not supposed to be here after my deployment. So many other mothers received those letters. How did i survive it? War survivability is about luck. I was lucky to have not been put on that mission. There is a reason why I am alive. There is a reason why I have such a lovely wife and such a beautiful child. God creates happiness and sadness at the same time in this world.

must have been a pain in the ass to cut that glass to put around her perfectly.

Washington Mothapo (11 months ago)
would have been amazing if they let the background music and drums go on as an outro forever and ever. similar to daughter's fossa or of monsters and men's yellow light. bliss

Anyone else recognize the title as an allusion to the way Tennessee Williams died, by choking on a bottle cap?

Anyone know what the official lyrics to the first line of this song are? I see lyric videos saying "pull out breaks behind the houses" but that sounds bad. I always thought it was "Gold light breaks behind the houses." Makes sense because it describes a sunrise

3:41 piano notes are similar to the bridge in Slow Show. Chords are a bit different, but it sounds alike.

this song is depressing but I love it for some reason. what is wrong with me?
Joseph Corridon (2 years ago)
There can be a joy in sad songs. I think it might be the catharsis of hearing something that perfectly embodies an emotion.

saw them at bonnaroo in 2013 I believe, they opened for Paul McCartney and it was the first time I heard them... amazing time and feeling
