    [Kim]
    You're it
    No, you're it
    Hey, you're really it
    You're it
    No I mean it, you're it

    Say it
    Don't spray it
    Spirit desire (face me)
    Spirit desire (don't displace me)
    Spirit desire
    We will fall

    Miss me
    Don't dismiss me

    Spirit desire

    Spirit desire [x3]
    We will fall
    Spirit desire
    We will fall
    Spirit desire [x3]
    We will fall
    Spirit desire
    We will fall

    [Thurston]
    Everybody's talking 'bout the stormy weather
    And what's a man do to but work out whether it's true?
    Looking for a man with a focus and a temper
    Who can open up a map and see between one and two

    Time to get it
    Before you let it
    Get to you

    Here he comes now
    Stick to your guns
    And let him through

    Everybody's coming from the winter vacation
    Taking in the sun in a exaltation to you
    You come running in on platform shoes
    With Marshall stacks
    To at least just give us a clue
    Ah, here it comes
    I know it's someone I knew

    Teenage riot in a public station
    Gonna fight and tear it up in a hypernation for you

    Now I see it
    I think I'll leave it out of the way
    Now I come near you
    And it's not clear why you fade away

    Looking for a ride to your secret location
    Where the kids are setting up a free-speed nation, for you
    Got a foghorn and a drum and a hammer that's rockin'
    And a cord and a pedal and a lock, that'll do me for now

    It better work out
    I hope it works out my way
    'Cause it's getting kind of quiet in my city's head
    Takes a teen age riot to get me out of bed right now

    You better look it
    We're gonna shake it
    Up to him

    He acts the hero
    We paint a zero
    On his hand

    We know it's down
    We know it's bound too loose
    Everybody's sound is round it
    Everybody wants to be proud to choose
    So who's to take the blame for the stormy weather
    You're never gonna stop all the teenage leather and booze

    It's time to go round
    A one man showdown
    Teach us how to fail

    We're off the streets now
    And back on the road
    On the riot trail

    Sonic Youth's final concert, held in Paulínia, São Paulo, Brazil, on November 14, 2011.

    Here's the video from their final song ever performed, Teen Age Riot.

    Kim later wrote about the show on her book, Girl in a Band: A Memoir:

    When we came out onstage for our last show, the night was all about the boys. Thurston double-slapped our bass guitarist Mark Ibold on the shoulder and loped across the stage, followed by Lee Ranaldo, our guitarist, and then Steve Shelley, our drummer. I found that gesture so phony, so childish, such a fantasy. Thurston has many acquaintances, but with the few male friends he had he never spoke of anything personal, and he’s never been the shoulder-slapping type. It was a gesture that called out, I’m back. I’m free. I’m solo.

    I was the last one to come on, making sure to mark off some distance between Thurston and me. I was exhausted and watchful. Steve took his place behind his drum set like a dad behind a desk. The rest of us armed ourselves with our instruments like a battalion, an army that just wanted the bombardment to end. It was pouring, slanting sheets of rain.

    After thirty years, tonight was Sonic Youth’s final concert. The SWU Music and Arts Festival was taking place in Itu, just outside São Paulo, Brazil, five thousand miles from our home in New England. It was a three-day-long event, broadcast on Latin American television and streamed online, too, with big corporate sponsors like Coca-Cola and Heineken. It was a strange place for things to come to an end.

    Thurston and I had exchanged maybe fifteen words all week. After twenty-seven years of marriage, things had fallen apart between us. In August I’d had to ask him to move out of our house in Massachusetts, and he had. He was renting an apartment a mile away and commuting back and forth to New York.

    The couple everyone believed was golden and normal and eternally intact, who gave younger musicians hope they could outlast a crazy rock-and-roll world, was now just another cliché of middle-aged relationship failure — a male midlife crisis, another woman, a double life.

    They say when a marriage ends that little things you never noticed before practically make your brain split open. All week that had been true for me whenever Thurston was around. Maybe he felt the same, or maybe his head was somewhere else. I didn’t really want to know, to be honest. Offstage he was constantly texting and pacing around the rest of us like a manic, guilty kid.

    The bad weather had followed us through South America, from Lima to Uruguay to Chile and now to São Paulo — a corny movie-mirror of the strangeness between Thurston and me. The festival stages were like musical versions of awkward domestic tableaux — a living room, or a kitchen, or a dining room, where the husband and the wife pass each other in the morning and make themselves separate cups of coffee with neither one acknowledging the other, or any kind of shared history, in the room.

    You're perfect in the way, a perfect end today
    You're burning out their lights, and burning in their eyes
    I love you Sugar Kane, a-comin' from the rain
    Oh kiss me like a frog, and turn me into flame
    I love you all the time, I need you 8 to 9
    And I can stay all night, yr body shining

    And I know
    There's something down there sugar soul
    Back to the cross a twisted lane
    There something down there sugar kane

    I'm back again in love, I'm back again a dove
    Where'd you get your light, your smilin' sugar life
    Another lovers day, another cracked up night
    Every night I say, the light is coming

    And I know
    There's something down there sugar cone
    Back to the cross a twisted lane
    There's something down there sugar kane

    Hey angel come and play, and fly me away
    A stroll along the beach, until you're out of time
    I love you sugar kane, a crack into the dream
    I love you sugar kane, I love you sugar kane
    I love you sugar kane, I love you sugar kane
    I love you sugar kane, I love you sugar
