All Wash Out

Maybe one day we will have enough wrinkles and wisdom to stop, to sleep, and to let those things that we’ll never grasp just pass on by unbothered and untainted like they should. But for now, all we have is Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros to guide us on our way. Great things in life are too often mistaken for beauty, and it’s tragic that they are not seen for what they really are. I won’t say that this song is beautiful, and I don’t think there is critique in that empty space. This song is simple, it is calm and gentle, it is precious and it is delicate. There’s a light in this song, there’s a little bit of elusive wisdom. There are great things about this song, and about this band, and those great things do not need to be mis-described as beauty. There are great things about this song, and that is enough. Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros don’t need beauty.
