Vibe: This is the New Year

To kick off 2014 on the WKND blog, we will start with our first of many "Vibe" posts. Our aim is to share quality works by creative individuals that may serve as a vehicle for inspiration to all you wanderers. Go forth and create. 

"The New Year"
(Death Cab for Cutie, Transatlanticism)

So this is the new year.
And i don't feel any different.
The clanking of crystal
Explosions off in the distance (in the distance).

So this is the new year
And I have no resolutions
For self assigned penance
For problems with easy solutions

So everybody put your best suit or dress on
Let's make believe that we are wealthy for just this once
Lighting firecrackers off on the front lawn
As thirty dialogs bleed into one

I wish the world was flat like the old days
Then I could travel just by folding a map
No more airplanes, or speed trains, or freeways.
There'd be no distance that could hold us back.

There'd be no distance that could hold us back 

So this is the new year
