Art Description

Painting: Paint on Cardboard.

Line from Arcade Fire’s song Suburban War, which featured on their third studio album The Suburbs, released on August 2, 2010.

"Let’s go for a drive, see the town tonight
There’s nothing to do but I don’t mind when I’m with you
This town’s so strange they built it to change
And while we sleep we know the streets get rearranged

My old friends, we were so different then
Before your war against the suburbs begin

Before it began

Now the music divides us into tribes
You grew your hair so I grew mine
You said the past won’t rest
Until we jump the fence and leave it behind

My old friends, I can remember when
You cut your hair, I never saw you again
Now the cities we live in could be distant stars
And I searched for you in every passing car

The night’s so long
Yeah the night’s so long

I’ve been living in the shadows of your song
Living in the shadows of your song
In the suburbs I, I learned to drive
You told me we would never survive,

So grab your mother’s keys, we leave tonight
But you started a war that we can’t win
We keep erasing all the streets we grew up in

Now the music divides us into tribes
Choose your side, I’ll choose my side

All my old friends they don’t know me now
All my old friends are staring through me now
All my old friends they don’t know me now
All my old friends they don’t know me now"
