Arcade Fire – Creature Comfort

Stand in the mirror and wait for the feedback
It’s all around you but you can’t touch it

Some boys hate themselves
Born in a diamond mine
(Na-na-na-na na-na-na)
[Bridge 1: Win Butler]

I’m a liar, don’t doubt my sincerity
[Chorus: Win Butler + Régine Chassagne]
It’s not painless
Spend their lives resenting their fathers
God, make me famous
Stand in the mirror and wait for the feedback
[Verse 2: Win Butler]
Just make it painless

Na-na-na-na na-na-na
Stand in the mirror and wait for the feedback
If you can’t just make it painless
She was a friend of mine, a friend of mine

(Na-na-na-na na-na-na)
On and on, I don’t know if I want it
Creature comfort makes it painless
If you can’t just make it painless

The white lie of American prosperity
[Outro: Win Butler + Régine Chassagne]
Just make it painless
[Verse 1: Win Butler]
[Pre-Chorus: Win Butler]
Just make it painless
Saying
It’s all around you but you can’t see it
(On and on I don’t know if I want it)
Creature comfort, make it painless
We wanna dance but we can’t feel the beat
Na-na-na-na na-na-na
Well if you’re not sure, better safe than sorry
Filled up the bathtub and put on our first record

Some girls cut themselves

Saying

(On and on I don’t know if I want it)
(On and on I don’t know what I want)
Hide under the covers with sleeping pills and
[Verse 3: Win Butler + Régine Chassagne]

Creature comfort, make it painless
Some girls hate their bodies
[Pre-Chorus: Win Butler]
[Chorus: Win Butler + Régine Chassagne]
Born in a diamond mine
(On and on I don’t know what I want)
[Post-Chorus: Win Butler + Régine Chassagne]
Some boys starve themselves
On and on, I don’t know if I want it
Bury me penniless and nameless
Some girls hate themselves
(On and on I don’t know if I want it)
She dreams about dying all the time
[Bridge 2: Win Butler]
We’re the bones under your feet
Creature comfort, make it painless
(On and on I don’t know what I want)

Saying
It goes on and on, I don’t know what I want
On and on, I don’t know if I want it
Just make it painless

On and on, I don’t know what I want
And we’re not nameless, oh
It goes on and on, I don’t know what I want
[Verse 5: Win Butler]
On and on, I don’t know what I want
God, make me famous

Creature comfort, make it painless
[Post-Chorus: Win Butler]
[Pre-Chorus: Win Butler + Régine Chassagne]
Some boys get too much, too much love, too much touch
Assisted suicide
She told me she came so close
God, make me famous
(On and on I don’t know what I want)
If you can’t just make it painless
On and on, I don’t know if I want it
