Riff: Arcade Fire – “Normal Person”

Oct 16, 2013

I’m so confused/Am I a normal person?/You know I can’t tell if I’m a normal person/It’s true, I think I’m cool enough, but am I cruel enough?/Am I cruel enough for you?

from Normal Person lyrics by Arcade Fire

King Talking Head evocative, as Butler may find himself in another part of the world, or in a beautiful house, asking behind AF’s own garage-Funeral searing rock way if he’s cruel enough to be a normal person, a perfect heel-kick on an album called Reflektor, tailing a track about existentialism.
