DESTROYER Don’t Become The Thing You Hated

Welcome to roflsaurus Lyrics DESTROYER Don’t Become The Thing You Hated Lyrics, singer by DESTROYER

Don’t become
Don’t become
The thing you hated
The thing you hated
The thing you hated

Don’t become
Don’t become
The thing you hated
The thing you hated
The thing you hated

Suns rise and suns go down again
Open your Strathcona doors,
Let them in, let them in,
Let them in, let them in, let them in,
Let them in, let them in, let them in, let them in
Let them in, let them in, let them in, let them in, let them in, let them in, let them in, let them in, let them in, let them in

Don’t become
Don’t become
The thing you hated
The thing you hated
The thing you hated

DESTROYER New Ways Of Living

Welcome to roflsaurus Lyrics DESTROYER New Ways Of Living Lyrics, singer by DESTROYER

Maybe I should have loved you.
Maybe I should have sworn
Not to be born
Of this wretched glove too soon,
But a dragon needs room!
A dragon needs room!
A dragon needs room
To run, run, run, run…

I was a desert in love with extremes.
You married well, a gentlewoman of means who
Kept the word Destroyer embroidered on her jeans, too

(La la la)

I wore skins. I didn’t care who survived.
The band foretold trends from Spring of ’85.
They’re calling it The New Decay …
Hey, so am I.

(La la la)

Treacherous fop, don’t be embarrassed
For looking good at your table on the terrace
That you call home. I’m sold!
Paris, London, Rome’s too old for you
And your kind
Explosions want to see what they can find:
New ways of living…

It’s you and your kind:
The New Ways of Living!

DESTROYER Your Blues

Welcome to roflsaurus Lyrics DESTROYER Your Blues Lyrics, singer by DESTROYER

Why does every one of her lovers leave her?
I’m ill-equipped to judge the tale of a woman.
That inviting army slut!… The Colonel’s in a rut! – back at the base they’re saying –
Now each day when he awakes his prayers take the form of one question –
How is it that we can be both Skating
and Dying?
Lord knows I’ve been trying…

DESTROYER From Oakland To Warsaw

Welcome to roflsaurus Lyrics DESTROYER From Oakland To Warsaw Lyrics, singer by DESTROYER

You lost your serve.
You lost your swing.
You thought you’d heard
Of everything… Hell, no!

From Oakland
To Warsaw,
Don’t you know the kids were all a-wrong.
Raise their voices in song –
Air comes out! Air comes out!

I know your style. You’ve got drastic desires, and shit.
Warm yourself by the fiery stage – fiery cause I lit it.

You lost your serve.
You lost your swing.
You thought you’d heard
Of everything… Hell, no!

DESTROYER The Music Lovers

Welcome to roflsaurus Lyrics DESTROYER The Music Lovers Lyrics, singer by DESTROYER

Feeling fine, but it must be the wine
‘Cause it’s April 27th and my baby’s still dying on me
We stole a gondola to sea
And ditched the chaperones on jewel-encrusted roans
Who called us unprofessional
Deep down they knew
Oh, that we were the music lovers

People say they just didn’t want it enough
Here, the people say they just didn’t want it enough
Oh, but we were the music lovers
People say they just didn’t want it enough
Hear the people say they just didn’t want it enough

The time of your lives has been had
And your wives have been bad
And, look, the private sector’s not denied you for the last time
They’re saying those grapes go rotten on the vine
Oh, but once we were the music lovers

People say they just didn’t want it enough
Here, the people say they just didn’t want it enough
Oh, but we were the music lovers
People say they just didn’t want it enough
Hear the people say they just didn’t want it enough

Sister, the world cannot hold us
Brother
You can go your own way

Ba-da-da
Ba-da-da-da
Ba-da-da, da-da-da-da
Ba-da-da, da-da-da-da
Ba-da-da
Ba-da-da-da
Ba-da-da, da-da-da-da
Ba-da-da, da-da-da-da

Ba-da-da
Ba-da-da-da
Ba-da-da, da-da-da-da
Ba-da-da, da-da-da-da
Ba-da-da

DESTROYER An Actor’s Revenge

Welcome to roflsaurus Lyrics DESTROYER An Actor’s Revenge Lyrics, singer by DESTROYER

An actor will seek revenge
I don’t know why and I don’t know when
There’ll be talk. There’ll be action
Boys demanding satisfaction
From girls. Oh, you’d hate to play a girl!
An actor will seek revenge…

He came on too strong
He was weird and he was wrong
A bloodless cop at dawn
Throwing everybody out
The kids twist and shout until the womb fucking wrecks it!

A boulevardier might say –
Tomorrow’s another day.
Alright, yes, but it’s also just another mess!
Crime and Punishment – no, that’s not what I meant!

An actor will seek revenge
I don’t know why and I don’t know when
There’ll be talk. There’ll be action
Boys demanding satisfaction
From girls. Oh, you’d hate to be a girl!
An actor will seek revenge
Upon the ones who fed him those ridiculous lines
Saying – What we really need now is an emotional history
Of the Lower Eastside, cause it was wild! It was wild!
Oh no, here we go again…

(Ba da, ba da, ba da, ba da… Ba da, ba da, ba da, ba da da ba da!)

DESTROYER It’s Gonna Take An Airplane

Welcome to roflsaurus Lyrics DESTROYER It’s Gonna Take An Airplane Lyrics, singer by DESTROYER

It’s gonna take an airplane
To get me off the ground.
I don’t blame anyone who isn’t sticking around,
Cause when you stick around (when you stick around!)
People like to put things in the ground.
Now, in my
Evil empire I
Am going to be a star in the night sky
Above. So you think this is love?
Yes, I guess so,
At least something to make it from…

Dressed like a dream dreamt by Lola magazine,
Baby you were born to be seen.
And art’s just the start!
Now step inside the Widowmaker
And listen to your heart!
Always ‘the play’, never ‘the thing’…

(Submarines don’t mind spending their time in the ocean…)

[Repeat first verse]

DESTROYER Notorious Lightning

Welcome to roflsaurus Lyrics DESTROYER Notorious Lightning Lyrics, singer by DESTROYER

Oh, Notorious Lightning! Yes, I had to ride you
And trash the crystal jets they kept in storage inside you!
I was told never to question it.
Now I’m facing twenty years for every night I tried to ingest the snow so lightly! (huh?)
You simply couldn’t put down the Black Book.
You dreamt the dreams of the Self-Taught Man.
You warn the ladies not to be corrupted by their looks,
But your voice comes out soft and slanted!
And you’re living off what government’s granted you:
Amnesty from the true
Thing. Now, Sandra, slowly remove the ring and watch Notorious Lightning surround you.
Watch Notorious Lightning surround you.
Watch Notorious Lightning surround you.
I lay myself down to observe your gilded jeans hit the ground,
And have not grown from this worship.
I lay myself down to surrender,
Watch the trust funds gorge us again,
And have not grown from this worship.
So, Great Pretender, pull a face! Let’s see the best ‘forlorn you know!’
Just don’t sing, Barricades In The Morning – it’s been three days in a row
And it never comes off like you planned it!
Something once was delivered, then you banned it
But, oh, there is a key to this thing…
Notorious Lightning…
There is a monument.
There is a place within it that I have won.
And there is victory at sea.
And then there’s the sun
Crashing down upon us
Faithful readership of the Old Warden. We beg –
No not another ode to the Garden! You’ve let the Book of Appeals pile up!
So, Child of the East, it’s time
To shrug off the Beast and take a look at what you’ve done.
The half-breed jury agrees you’re OK,
But what they never seem to say is that it’s never
The defense’s witness…
and someone’s got to fall before someone goes free.

DESTROYER The Night Moves

Welcome to roflsaurus Lyrics DESTROYER The Night Moves Lyrics, singer by DESTROYER

First things first, we burst
Onto the scene where the New, New Wave weeps over his brother…
Though reports all point to fratricide (and so do I!)
Cause these days pretty girls just make waves that go too far,
Repeating themselves through endless Night…

DESTROYER The Relevant Ballads

Welcome to roflsaurus Lyrics DESTROYER The Relevant Ballads Lyrics, singer by DESTROYER

The Relevant Ballads are calling you truant and then untrue …
The Annotated Swan Song says –
You’ve been here too long with your ashes by the river…
There is something you were supposed to give her real soon…
