PassionPit

Promoting their new documentary, Hello Everywhere (which you can stream on VEVO), electronic pop-rock outfit Passion Pit will be performing on Live On Letterman on Wednesday, September 4th at 8:00 ET/5:00 PT.

Playing hits from their 2012 sophomore release Gossamer, we thought we'd revisit the record and pull our favorite lines from the release. Band leader and songwriter Michael Angelakos is well-known as a profound lyric writer, so take a look at our picks for the best lyric lines from Passion Pit's Gossamer:

1. "Take A Walk"

Practice isn't perfect but the market cuts a loss / I remind myself that times could be much...

2. "I'll Be Alright"

Can you remember ever having any fun / Cause when it's all said and done / I always believed we were / But now I'm not so sure...

3. "Carried Away"

No, I'm not as proper / My money's in copper / Ripped down from the brownstones to the street...

4. "Constant Conversations"

If there is a bump in the road yeah you'd fix it / But for me I'd just run off the road...

5. "Mirrored Sea"

Oh you mirrored sea / Your waves are haunting me / They're all I see...

6. "Cry Like A Ghost"

Right back where you came from / You're a pendulum / Heartbroken and numb...

7. "On My Way"

Let's get married, Ill buy a ring and then we'll / Consecrate this messy love...

8. "Hideaway"

Where they'll never say you cannot stay / Come and play, my hideaway / Someday everything will be ok...

9. "Two Veils To Hide My Face"

Don't answer any prayers they have just lift our calloused hearts / With the bursting rays of August and your cold rain drops of March...

10. "Love Is Greed"

If we really love ourselves, how do you love somebody else?

11. "It's Not My Fault, I'm Happy"

It's not my fault I'm happy / Don't call me crazy I'm happy / It's not right, it's not right...

12. "Where We Belong"

All things you can't control / Should never destroy the love one holds / I found a place...
