Frightened Rabbit: Acts of Man

Frightened Rabbit has a brand new album out called Pedestrian Verse. Overall it's pretty great. Here's the lead track, Called Acts of Man, performed live.

I am that dickhead in the kitchen
giving wine to your best girl's glass
I am the amateur pornographer
unpleasant publisher by hand

not here, not here
heroic acts of man
not here, not here
heroic acts of man

I see the stumbling pinstriped trouser
flecks of sick on and off his shoe
part of the fatty british avarice
who lives in the houses around you

not here, not here
heroic acts of man
not here, not here
heroic acts of man

Let's all crowd 'round the cowering body
throw stocky fingers bricks and stones
let's promise every girl we marry
we'll always love them when we probably won't
while the knight in shitty armor
rips a drunk out of her dress
one man tears into another
hides a coward's heart in a lion's chest

Man, he breeds although he shoudn't
he's breeding just because he cums
acts the father for a minute
till the worst insticts return

not here, not here
heroic acts of man
not here, not here
heroic acts of man

I have never wanted more
to be a man to build a house around you
but I am just like all the rest of them
sorry, selfish, trying to improve

I'm here, I'm here
not heroic, but I try
I'm here, I'm here
not heroic, but I try

Can't wait to see them at the end of March.
