1. Neighborhood #1 (Tunnels) By: Arcade Fire

“You change all the lead sleeping in my head to gold

As the day grows dim, I hear you sing a golden hymn

It’s the song I’ve been trying to sing…

Purify the colors, purify my mind

Purify the colors, purify my mind

And spread the ashes of the colors over this heart of mine!”

And we’re changing our ways, taking different roads

Then love, love will tear us apart again”
