Notorious Lightning
by Destroyer

Oh, notorious lightning
Yes I had to ride you
And crash the crystal jets they kept in storage inside you
I was told never to quesiton 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 the government granted you
Amnesty from the true thing
Now, Sandra, slowly remove the ring
And 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 okay
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

Somebody else can hear something similar to Roger waters (the wall)? 🤔

Cardinal Biggles

must the moment of truth be just that, a moment?

Hairy Bear Suits

Now I'm facing twenty years for every night I
tried to ingest the snow so lightly

This still stands as my favorite Destroyer album, and as "album opening tracks" go, this one does a mighty fierce job of setting the stage for the songs to follow.

Gorecki

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 okay 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!

Max Otterland

Like Rufus Wainwright meets 1930s German Musical meets Joe Jackson and the Ronettes. So Perfect!

The synth in this song made me think this was made 2015-2019 and man was I surprised to see when it came out. Great song
