Canadians’ new testament to the world takes on epic proportions
After the funeral comes the wake. A celebration, a party; a bleary, teary toast to what’s gone before, its impact on those who were touched by it. And after Arcade Fire ’s ‘Funeral’ – after all the grief, glory and emotional exorcisms that saw their debut album light up 2004 like an emperor’s pyre – what next? “Mirror mirror, on the wall/Show me where them bombs will fall”...

My body is a cage
That keeps me from dancing with the one I love
But my mind holds the key
My body is a cage
I don't wanna work in a building downtown,
no I don't wanna work in a building downtown
I don't know what I'm gonna do,
'cause the planes keep crashing,
i'm serving time
all for a crime i did commit
you want the truth?
you know i'd do it all again
In an ocean of noise,
I first heard your voice,
Ringing like a bell,
As if I had a choice, oh well!
We can reach the sea.
They won't follow me. Shadows, they fear the sun.
We'll make it if we run!
Run from the memory.
A vial of hope and a vial of pain,
In the light they both looked the same.
Pourred them out on into the world,
On every boy and every girl.
Every night my dreamâs the same
Same old city with a different name
Men are coming to take me away
I donât know why but I know I canât stay
I walk down to the ocean
After waking from a nightmare.
No moon no pale reflection.
Black Mirror, Black Mirror
The keys taken back were thrown
The useless seed was sown
When they say they're cutting off the phone
Then tell 'em you're not home
We know a place where no planes go
We know a place where no ships go
Hey, no cars go
I don't wanna hear the noises on TV,
I don't want the salesmen coming after me,
I don't wanna live in my father's house no more.
I don't want it faster, I dont want it free,
