Digital Ash In a Digital Urn (2005)
2005 was a big year for Bright Eyes. Conor had recently moved to New York and was working on two simultaneous albums. One album produced this song, a percussive exploration of all of life and all of time. Quite a heady topic for an indie (pop?) song, but one that makes for a jaunty sing-song when you feel the need.
Notable lyric: Singing “I told you son, / The day will come, / You would die, you die, you die, you dieâ€¦”
