The Arcade Fire Lyrics
The last year has been an eventful one for The Arcade Fire.
In June 2003, Régine’s grandmother Nancy died; in August,
Win and Régine were married; in September, the Arcade Fire
started recording their debut album. In March 2004, Win and
Will’s grandfather Alvino Rey died; Richard Parry’s Aunt
Betsy passed away in April; in May 2004 the Arcade Fire
were signed to Merge Records, and completed their album. It
having been something of a heavy hitting year, the band’s
minds were somewhat a-whirl. The deaths of Nancy , Alvino
and Betsy More...

Review about The Arcade Fire songs
A Plea to Feel before its too late | Reviewer: Googiesgal------ About the song Wake Up performed by The Arcade Fire
For me this is an appeal to us all to let go of the 'grown up' ideal of suppressing one's feelings. Instead of feeling nothing, we should fill our hearts with love, express ourselves, and not let our hearts become cold as generations before have done.
The grown ups say it is a mistake to feel, a mistake to cry. But if you go through life without feeling, without love, you will live through the summer of your life and experience only dryness and death.
By feeling, we have our hearts broken, but at least we're alive.
The power that makes us cry (rain) may cause chaos, might need reigning in sometimes
But without it we just die in darkness.
Someone being caught by the mom | Reviewer: Alan------ About the song Crown Of Love performed by The Arcade Fire
I thought this song was about someone who had to stop whatever it was they were doing before their mother caught them in the act. I think it's about masturbation. The line about their mom coming into their bedroom is repeated and quite obvious.
Wrong time frame guys | Reviewer: Parker------ About the song Haiti performed by The Arcade Fire
I just got back from a trip to Haiti. I also have studied the history of Haiti. I think you guys are going to far back. I think this song is about the current third world state of haiti. The soldiers being the UN, who are "protecting the peace" but really just pretending to direct traffic, while protecting the oil that is in Haiti. I don't see any references to the Duvalier regime, but thats just me.
Replying to Shawna's "Broken by the broken" comment | Reviewer: corthew------ About the song Wake Up performed by The Arcade Fire
Well, yes. We are sociopaths/psychopaths in a sense.
Speaking for myself, I was in my late 20's before I was able to reach the point the song writer reached where he realized he had been lied to as a child.
Unfortunately, you cannot easily "un-become" a sociopath.
I care deeply for the world around me but I will never really "feel" the world around me. I'm incapable of it though I would love to be able to again.
The possibility though of bridging that gap again and being wrong again is too painful to risk...again.
I'd rather feel love for mankind from within my barrier.
Its hard to regain that level of innocence that allows you to love when its been abused.
I can't allow myself to risk it again.
Do you get that?
releasing childish things | Reviewer: RealityIsAnOpinion------ About the song Wake Up performed by The Arcade Fire
Let go of childish things and childish fairy tales.
Yes it hurts.
But without the fairy tales we have ourselves to rely upon.
And there is no need to cause pain
For another's decree.
We are ourselves
And we are free.
Mark 10:13-16 | Reviewer: Anonymous------ About the song Wake Up performed by The Arcade Fire
And they were bringing children to him that he might touch them, and the disciples rebuked them. But when Jesus saw it, he was indignant and said to them, “Let the children come to me; do not hinder them, for to such belongs the kingdom of God. Truly, I say to you, whoever does not receive the kingdom of God like a child shall not enter it.” And he took them in his arms and blessed them, laying his hands on them.
yeah | Reviewer: Nelson------ About the song Crown Of Love performed by The Arcade Fire
You guys who are saying this song is anti-religious are really missing the mark, not to mention the band is mormon. Notice they never curse...in any of their songs. It's all about love, losing love, and just life in general. Things beyond religious views and quite frankly deeper. They speak to the human experience.
Wake/Up | Reviewer: Misanthropicaz------ About the song Wake Up performed by The Arcade Fire
Wake up. Realize you are who you want to be; you make who you are through your actions, your thoughts, your words... your mistakes, your triumphs - they all comprise you, whoever you are. Sometimes it hurts, but other times it's gloriously happy. Such is life.
Theme song for my career choice | Reviewer: M Maloof------ About the song Black Mirror performed by The Arcade Fire
Black mirrors are television or video screens (computer, smartphone, etc) According to Win Butler, any references to the ocean on this LP represent chaos/disorder/confusion. I believe he's stated that he thinks your world view is subliminally influenced by the media displayed in black mirrors. Television, religion, the ocean (disorder) are major themes on "Neon Bible".
I love this exquisite song! Unless I'm spinning the vinyl version, I end repeating it a few times in a row. I work as a location sound recordist for television and video, theatrical documentary, etc, so this song has become a beautiful sick theme song for me and my conflicting feelings of helping feed "Black Mirrors" (though I admit I love my job).
Overthinking? | Reviewer: Aza------ About the song Neighborhood #1 (Tunnels) performed by The Arcade Fire
Music is everything to anybody - exactly what you want it to be, and what it should be. We all interpret it differently, and that's okay. I love it, so I will listen to it. Infect my soul with your magic!
