The Magnetic Fields, "Rats in the Garbage of the Western World"

This is the darkest place I've ever been
But I like what little of you I've seen
You stepped out of the TV screen
And into my most personal dreams
I don't want to go home with you
But the TV tells me what to do
I don't want to fall in love with you
But I've been conditioned to

We are the rats in the garbage of the western world
So let's dance
I wouldn't look twice if I were sober enough
But I can tell you're a diamond in the rough
The way you don't talk and the way you don't walk
Just like a model

I know this is gonna be love
In a place like this with a boy like you
Anything could happen if you want it to
I want to shoot you and hang you on my wall
But there's no film in my Polaroid...

Thanks, Erie!
