THE ABSOLUTE NERD ROCK TRUTH

A nugget from "We Are Nowhere, And It's Now" from Bright Eyes' album "I'm Wide Awake It's Morning".

"If you hate the taste of wine
Why do you drink it until you're blind?
And if you swear that there's no truth and who cares
How come you say it like you're right?
Why are you scared to dream of God
When it's salvation that you want?
You see stars that clear have been dead for years
But the idea just lives on "

I think it's the cynic in me that has always found Oberst's lyrics spiritually thought-provoking, especially the songs off Lifted.

Bright Eyes lyrics are indeed thought provoking - yet so nicely woven with music that you can at times just relax to the music and others delve deeply into thought.

I love that song.. and most any of Obersts' songs.

He is indeed an amazing songwriter
