Nesbit Likes: Lyrics

From The Mountain Goats’ This Year, this song really speaks from the heart. Their music is a continuing source of inspiration; they’ve got consistent brilliant imagery with a rustic, woody feel to it. These two verses are a favourite – make sure to give the song and their other pieces a listen, they’re great!

I played video games in a drunken haze
I was 17 years young
Hurt my knuckles punching the machines
The taste of scotch rich on my tongue

And then Cathy showed up and we hung out
Trading swigs from a bottle, all bitter and clean
Locking eyes, holding hands
Twin high maintenance machines
