It’s been a while since a song has really grabbed me and evoked some emotion. The video may be overflowing with trippy symbolism, but I can definitely associate with the desire for the youthful freedom MGMT is portraying (especially the cosmic surfing!).
“I’ll miss the playgrounds and the animals and digging up worms.
I’ll miss the comfort of my mother and the weight of the world.
I’ll miss my sister, miss my father, miss my dog and my home.
Yeah I’ll miss the boredom and the freedom and the time spent alone.
But there is really nothing, nothing we can do.
Love must be forgotten. Life can always start up anew.”
