Loose Translation

This song is by The New Pornographers and appears on the album Electric Version (2003).

Original video
One holy ghost for a homemade girl in a green T-shirt
That read, I quote: "What price damnation now?"
In the school of thought, in the halls of state with a leap of faith
The loose translation must have lost her

It must have caused her
To go back to the civilization
Caught between here and the real one
Just to say what you'd begun to say once

We have been enrolled in the wrong schools all through the pride of fall
The falling price of education now
There have been no clues in the last few takes in the steps retraced
The education must have caused her

It must have caused her
To go back to the civilization
Caught between here and the real one
Just to say what you'd begun to say once

The education must have cost her
The loose translation must have lost her, it must have lost her, yeah
The loose translation must have lost her, it must have lost her, yeah
It must have lost her, it must have lost her, yeah
