    New Slang
    gold teeth and a curse for this town were all in my mouth
    only i don't know how they got out dear
    turn me back into the pet i was when we met
    i was happier then with no mind-set

    and if you'd took to me like
    a gull takes to the wind
    well i'd 'a jumped from my tree
    and i’d ‘a danced like the King of the Eyesores
    and the rest of our lives would 'a fared well

    new slang when you notice the stripes the dirt in your fries
    hope it's right when you die old and bony
    dawn breaks like a bull through the hall never should have called
    but my head’s to the wall and i'm lonely

    and if you'd took to me like
    a gull takes to the wind
    well i'd 'a jumped from my tree
    and i'd ‘a danced like the King of the Eyesores
    and the rest of our lives would 'a fared well

    godspeed all the bakers at dawn may they all cut their thumbs
    and bleed into their buns till they melt away

    i'm looking in on the good life i might be doomed never to find
    without a trust or flaming fields am i too dumb to refine
    and if you'd took to me like
    and i’d ‘a danced like the Queen of the Eyesores
    and the rest of our lives would 'a fared well

    Well this is just a simple song
    To say what you done
    I told you about all those fears
    And away they did run
    You sure must be strong
    And you feel like an ocean

  • The Shins: NPR Music Tiny Desk Concert

    10:16

    Bob Boilen | July 24, 2017 -- The Shins have been a constant part of NPR's musical DNA for much of the 21st century. The group's poetic pop has shown up in something like 25 stories on our website, not just because many of us are longtime fans, but also because our listeners love them. Stories on our site include: The Best CDs of 2003: Listeners' Picks, The Shins In Concert from 2012, Song Premiere: The Shins And Zach Braff Reunite, a recent interview on All Things Considered and so many more. It's remarkable that there's never been a Tiny Desk Concert from The Shins until now.

    In celebration of the band's fifth studio album, 2017's Heartworms, singer and guitarist James Mercer, the emotional and creative center of The Shins, came to NPR to perform a handful of songs that included two new tracks and one that reached back to 2003 from the album Chutes Too Narrow. It's a moving performance with just James on guitar, no band, no amplification - simple and perfect.

    Heartworms is available now.

    The Past and Pending
    as someone sets light to the first fire of autumn
    we settle down to cut ourselves apart
    cough and twitch from the news on your face
    and some foreign candle burning in your eyes

    held to the past too aware of the pending
    chill as the dawn breaks and finds us up for sale
    enter the fog another low road descending
    away from the cold lust your house and summertime

    blind to the last curse of the fair pistols and countless eyes
    a trail of white blood betrays the reckless route your craft is running
    feed till the sun turns into wood dousing an ancient torch
    loiter the whole day through and lose yourself in lines dissecting love

    your name on my cast and my notes on your stay
    offer me little but doting on a crime
    we’ve turned every stone and for all our inventions
    in matters of love loss we’ve no recourse at all

  • The Shins - The Great Divide

    4:03

    The Shins - “The Great Divide”

    Listen:

    Directed by Paul Trillo
    Produced by Jen Alvares (Hunters House) and Paul Trillo
    Creative Director for The Shins: Jon Sortland
    Executive Producer: Oscar A. R. Chow
    CGI Studio: Hunters House Entertainment Group

    Your starlit eyes
    The afterglow a sign
    You’ve set us wandering
    So let me ride through night
    Til love is everything
    Now an age has come out of the loneliness
    Your hand in mine
    Your hand in mine
    The great divide
    A stitch in time
    Then we recombine
    The way it was
    Well dust to dust
    Has led us here to collide

    The blind collective mind of man is all they’re offering
    Then you bring a breath of life out of the emptiness
    Your hand in mine

    Your hand in mine
    The great divide
    A stitch in time
    Then we recombine
    The way it was
    well dust to dust
    Has led us here to collide
    Oh love of mine
    Bright as the starlight shines
    Into the night
    Changing our whole lives

    You trace the lines through space and time
    Until you find they all align
    You give to me
    A memory
    Just a melody
    I have to sing

    Know Your Onion!
    shut out pimpled and angry
    i quietly tied all my guts into knots
    i gave up on trying to make them
    i figured it'd take them too long to look up and besides

    it was undeniably clear to me i don't know why
    when every other part of life seemed locked behind shutters
    i knew what worthless dregs we’ve always been

    lucked out found my favorite records
    lying in wait at the Birmingham mall
    the songs that i heard
    the occasional book
    were the only fun i ever took
    and i got on with making myself
    the trick is just making yourself

    but when they're parking their cars on your chest
    you've still got a view of the summer sky
    to make it hurt twice when your restless body
    caves to its whims
    and suddenly struggles to take flight

    three thousand miles north east
    i left all my friends at the morning bus stop shaking their heads
    what kind of life you dream of? you're allergic to love
    yes i know but i must say in my own defense
    it's been undeniably dear to me i don't know why
    when every other part of life seemed locked behind shutters
    i knew the worthless dregs we are
    the selfless, loving saints we are
    the melting, sliding dice we've always been
