  • The Hold Steady - Separation Sunday FULL ALBUM

    42:11

    Probably one of the best albums of the decade. A concept album, Separation Sunday follows the stories of Craig (the narrator), Holly (short for Halleluiah), a sometimes addict, sometimes prostitute, sometimes born again Christian/Catholic (and sometimes all three simultaneously); Charlemagne, a pimp; and Gideon, a skinhead, as they travel from city to city and party to party.

    Austin Chronicle 7.8/10 The music is like some unholy amalgamation of Born to Run-era Springsteen and Billy Joel shazam. This is a good thing
    Amazon ★★★★ glorious din,scabrous punk rock swagger with hard rock power chords

    3:40

    The band The Hold Steady was formed in 2000 after vocalist/guitarist Craig Finn moved to New York City from Minneapolis. They released their debut CD Almost Killed Me in 2004 and it's been nonstop for the band ever since.

    In July of 2008, The Hold Steady dropped their fourth CD and most heavily produced effort, Stay Positive, under some pretty major buzz in the music industry.

    LYRICS

    I heard the Cityscape Skins are kind of kicking it again.
    Heard they finally got some discipline.
    Running up the score and stocking up like it's World War Four.
    I heard that some are getting sprung
    And some are back in.
    You know it's always back and forth.
    And most of them are dead and some don't even live here anymore.

    So when I brought you back here for Christmas.
    I didn't think we would see them.
    I guess I should have explained.

    There was a side of this city I didn't want you to see.
    There's just these guys that I know and we go back pretty deep.
    I hope this whole thing didn't frighten you.
    There were times that it terrified me.
    I know what they said. I don't know if it's true.
    I hope this whole thing didn't frighten you.
    They're building a bunker down by the river.
    And someone said that that's where they've been getting together.
    They've got masks for the gas.
    They're sleeping in their bulletproof vests.
    I guess Shepard came out of St. Cloud with a little ideology.
    Some new way of thinking man.
    A view to the future.
    Jesus this might be a mess.

    For me it was mostly the music.
    A crew to go to the shows with.
    I guess I should have explained.
    There was a side of this city I didn't want you to see.
    There's just these guys that I know and we go back pretty deep.
    I hope this whole thing didn't frighten you.
    There were times that it terrified me.
    I know what they said. I don't know if it's true.
    I hope this whole thing didn't frighten you.

    They never care if it's true as long as they've got something to prove.
    And they've always got something to prove.

    And the room filled with dudes.
    And they cranked up the tunes.
    And I could tell this whole thing kind of frightened you.

    There was a side of this city I didn't want you to see.
    There's just these guys that I know and we go back pretty deep.
    I saw you look at their shoes. I saw you look at their teeth.
    I could tell this whole thing kind of frightened you.
    I saw you tapping your arm like you wanted to cruise.
    I could tell this whole thing kind of frightened you.

    Lyrics:

    We used to lie to each other about using computers.
    When we couldn't get it here we used to cruise to Vancouver.
    We used to lie to the people when we'd show up at parties.
    We used to pretend that we'd never met.
    And then you'd send a signal with your cigarette.

    At first it felt like heaven.
    Then it felt just like The Whole.
    Let's roll. Let's roll around.

    Now when we lie to each other we do it through computers.
    Now we never go dancing because we're not really moving.
    She's got a bandolero belt filled with Kamikaze shooters.
    She touches every table in a total eclipse.
    It costs an awful lot for just a little bit.

    At first it felt like faith.
    Then if felt just like the void.
    Now we're stranded on the southside.
    So sick of waiting on our boys.

    Let's roll. Let's roll around.
    Let's go. Let's go back uptown.

    You can ask me not to do it but you can't contain the kids.
    We were living for the city.
    Now we're living for the smidge.
    We used to want it all.
    Now we just want a little bit.
    Living living living living living for the smidge.

    Angel I didn't say goodbye.
    But I'm already gone.

    Living living living living living for the smidge.
    You can ask me not to do it but you can't control the kids.
    Living living living living living for the smidge.
    We used to want it all.
    Now we just want a little bit.

    Let's roll. Let's roll around.
    Let's go. Let's go back uptown.

    Come on, send me a signal.
    Something to show me you're alright.
    Make the sign of the cross with your cigarette.
    Come on, smudge a little smoke up in the night
