My Rights Versus Yours

This song is by The New Pornographers and appears on the album Challengers (2007).

Under your wheels, the hope of spring,
Mirage of loss, a few more things.
You left your sorrow dangling,
It hangs in air like a school cheer.

Complex notes inside the chords,
On every wall, inflections carved.
Deep as lakes and dark as stars,
Remember we were the volunteers.

(Ooh...) Courts knew this and nothing more.
(Ooh...) Now it's my rights versus yours.

Under your wheels, your hopeless reign.
You fall too hard, we're up too late.
We hang suspended from the heights
Until it's safer to walk here.

Under your wheels, your chance is with
The easy call, the called-off search.
The medicine, it still won't work,
But there's dangerous levels of it here.

(Ooh...) Same thing as the other time,
(Ooh...) But now it's your rights versus mine.

The truth in one free afternoon,
The truth in one free afternoon.

Under my wheels, the chance is held,
Gave me to save me from myself.
Spectacles painted with my shaking hand.

Fingers in paints, in paints we brought,
Thinking we'd leave them when we're not,
Flying the flags of new empires in rags.

The new empire in rags, the truth in one free afternoon.
A new empire in rags, the truth in one free afternoon.
A new empire in rags, the truth in one free afternoon.
A new empire in rags, the truth in one free afternoon.

Under your wheels, the fits and starts,
The time to dabble in the arts,
To tease the packs of dogs in charge,
But, kid, it's always still me.

Under your wheels, the hope of spring.
Mirage of loss, a few more things.
The medicine, it still won't sing,
But there's dangerous levels of it here.

Your rights over my rights now,
We came to the right place.
Your rights over my rights now,
Your rights over my rights now,
We came to the right place.
Your rights over my rights now,
Your rights over my rights now.
