The lyrics left untranscribed in this official lyric video are Latin: ut Deo.
But who could ever live that way?Ut Deo, Ya HeyUt Deo, Deo
This phrase appears only once in the Bible, in Galatians 2:19. Ezra Koenig is Jewish, but the context ("who could ever live that way?") makes me think the New Testament allusion is intentional.
Ego enim per legem, legi mortuus sum, ut Deo vivam: Christo confixus sum cruci.For I through the law am dead to the law, that I might live unto God: I am crucified with Christ.
The bridge mentions "spinning 'Israelites' into '19th Nervous Breakdown'"; not sure what the connection is.
