Fleet Foxes – “Helplessness Blues”

I. CANNOT. GET. OVER. THIS. SONG. Last night I pretty much cried on-air after playing this tune… I held it together, but listening at full blast with quality headphones in the dimly lit studio by myself at 11pm really intensified the moment. After listening over and over again, I’m still in awe of the beauty of the music, the harmonies, and the LYRICS in this song.

“I was raised up believing
I was somehow unique
Like a snowflake, distinct among snowflakes,
Unique in each way you’d conceive

And now after some thinking
I’d say I’d rather be
A functioning cog in some great machinery
Serving something beyond me

But I don’t know I don’t know what that will be
I’ll get back to you someday soon you will see…

…If I know only one thing
It’s that every thing that I see
Of the world outside is so inconceivable
Often I barely can speak…”

Fleet Foxes
