Just when you thought I was done posting songs from The National, they go ahead and record an unreleased one during an in-studio session. And not just any song, one that has lyrics like these:

"I'll do what I can to be a confident wreck 
Can't feel this way forever, I mean
There wasn't any way for anyone to settle in 
You made a slow disaster out of me.

There's a radiant darkness upon us
But I don't want you to worry
I was careful but nothing is harmless
Baby you'd better hurry"

(Full lyrics & playback here:
