Some boys are filling, some boys are filling the hole, stuffing themselves silly.
They’re making the killing at the top of the billings – their role – and that’s all that they know. They’re wanted and wanting. But some boys don’t listen, some boys don’t listen at all, no matter how loud you shout. They don’t ask for permission, they lack inhibitions. Slaves to their passions. Cursing their losses.
No walls, and they get what they want. But some boys don’t know how to love.
Some boys are filling, some boys are filling the hole, emptying themselves silly.
Some boys are sleeping, some boys are sleeping alone, restlessly turning in bed.
Some boys don’t know how to love. They won’t get what they want.
Hear “Some Boys” on Death Cab for Cutie’s ‘Codes and Keys Remix’ EP, due out November 22.
Have you learned yet how to love?
