Vampire Zeitgeist

[Verse 1]
Oh, sweet thing
Zion doesn't love you
And Babylon don't love you
But you love everything
Oh, you saint
America don't love you
So I could never love you
In spite of everything

Through the fire and through the flames
You won't even say your name
Only "I am that I am"
But who could ever live that way?
(Ya Hey x2)
Ut Deo, Ya Hey
Ut Deo, Deo Annotate

[Verse 2]

Oh, the motherland don't love you
The fatherland don't love you
So why love anything?
Oh, good God
The faithless they don't love you
The zealous hearts don't love you
And that's not gonna change."

"The most divisive aspect of Vampire Weekend's music has been Ezra Koenig's willingness to recognize the emotional issues of the well-off and make them worthy of empathy. But the concerns about how grammar, consumer products or upbringing affects one's identity all feel like chump change compared to "Ya Hey," where Koenig pulls up a barstool to match wits with the guy who's got the most daunting luxury problems of all: God."
