I did my best, it wasn't much. I couldn't feel so I tried to touch.

The new Mountain Goats album, "The Life Of The World To Come", is supposed to be released next week (although I've already seen it in-store). Here's the last song on the album. It's now up with selections at Beggars Banquet, and streaming over at Colbert Nation, as well. And here under the cut.
Ezekiel 7 and the Permanent Efficacy Of Grace
Moreover the word of the LORD came unto me, saying, Also, thou son of man, thus saith the Lord GOD unto the land of Israel; An end, the end is come upon the four corners of the land...

The clouds explode and then the desert blooms
Someone will need to mop this floor for me
When I emerge, I find my car
Like a cathedral in a dream of the future
Drive till the rain stops, keep driving...

Pull over and blast off when I get the chance.
Clear as an insect's wings in sunlight
Flip on the high stakes radio
Try to sing the words right
Drive till the rain stops, keep driving...

I had his arms tied up behind him
We were together all day
Maybe make Culiacán by sunset
Try to, anyway...
High as the clouds now, flying
Drive til' the rain stops, keep driving...
