Day 24: We Are Free Men

There Is No Beginning to The Story (2002)

This song features one of the rare male voice duets in the Bright Eyes catalog. The two “free men” take turns doing a couple lines each, which builds with the repeated line of “now you’re body’s gone” and culminates in the explosive “angel, you will live!”. It’s an EP track that could have been on an album, and to get the visibility it deserves it should have been.

Notable lyric: we will be lifted / up from all of this, yeah, we will transcend / the insignificance of our existence / Yeah, your body’s gone, but, angel, you will live!
