It doesn't matter which you heard

Film Screening w/ The Mountain Goats and Rian Johnson
You'd think I was getting some sort of kickback from John Darnielle, but I'm not. The new Mountain Goats album, "The Life Of The World To Come", is awesome. You can listen to it streaming over here, but here's some more words from John's pen. ( Also, if you live in New York, I'm very very jealous--see thingy to the right.)
Genesis 30:3
And she said, Behold my maid Bilhah, go in unto her; and she shall bear upon my knees, that I may also have children by her.

For several days the visitors were here
We saw them turned down and we watched them disappear
Talked about the days they'd said were sure to come
Had a hard time believing

I remember seeing you, my tongue struck dumb
When you first came here from wherever it was you came from
The power in your voice, your rough touch
You keeping care of me, keeping watch

Open up the doors to the tent
Wonder where the good times went
I will do what you ask me to do
Because of how I feel about you

I saw his little face contract as his eyes met light
Tried to imagine anything so bright
You only see it once and then it steals into the dawn
And then it's gone forever

For several hours we lay there last ones of our kind
Harder days coming maybe I don't mind
Sounds kind of dumb when I say it but it's true
I would do anything for you

Open up the promise of the day
Drive the dark things away
I will do what you ask me to do
Because of how I feel about you
