  1. the shins'in 2001 seneli "oh inverted world" adlı ilk albümünün sekizinci şarkısıdır. albümün tamamı gözümde şahane şarkılardan oluştuğu için aralarından birini seçmek haksızlık gibi geliyor fakat sorunlu fakat ümitlerin de baki olduğu bir ilişkiye bakış açısıyla bu şarkı ayrı bir takdiri hak ediyor.

    sözleri aşağıdaki gibidir:

    one wound up punch of intuition
    lays flat my whole take on us.
    you're the girl on the wing of a barnstormer
    the tidal rabbit who came of age before her time.

    we could have been so good-natured
    if i'd relented when you insisted,
    but we've been backed against
    all nature's walls far too long.

    you felt abandoned by me,
    i recall the sunshine as you were melting
    and though the comedy softens the fall
    they still hear us with their ears to the wall.

    i sold all my evil motives,
    no icicles stuck in my hide.
    i'm through with riddles, i know we're little
    just help me feel warm inside.

    before we take this ride and let it slide
    into the cracks where fall and winter collide.
    i surrender all my gall in a song of modern love.
    remember you're the one who summoned me above any other kind.

    we could have been so good-natured
    if you'd relented when i insisted,
    we take a week off, let the garden grow by itself
    and let the gluttons fill themselves with all the worst of the gory ninties.
    and though the comedy softens the fall, we stall fall short.

    before we take this ride and let it slide
    into the cracks where fall and winter collide.
    i surrender all my gall in a song of modern love.
    remember you're the one who summoned me above any other kind.
