Fleet Foxes - Mykonos

The door slammed loud and rose up a cloud of dust on us
Footsteps follow, down through the hollow sound, torn up
And you would go to Mykonos
With a vision of a gentle coast
And a sun to maybe dissipate
Shadows of the mess you made
Pallid animals in the snow tipped pines, I find
Hatching from the seed of your orphaned mind, all night
And you would go to Mykonos
With a vision of a gentle coast
And a sun to maybe dissipate
Shadows of the mess you made
Brother you don't need to turn me away
I was waiting down at the ancient gate
You go
Wherever you go today
You go today
I remember how they took you down
As the winter turned the meadow brown
You go
Wherever you go today
You go today
When I'm walking brother don't you forget
It ain't often that you'll ever find a friend
You go
Wherever you go today
You go today
[X8]

"Mykonos" doesn’t travel as far as its title suggests, but thrives on the tension between Lester Freamon Toe-Taps the Blues’s wordless vocal intro and the band’s intricate harmonies. Of course, it careens off in new directions. Pecknold pleads, bringing the song to a dramatic standstill. Then the band just runs away with the song again.
