Lyrics

My dear, I'll give you sixty seconds to disappear
And if you don't get out of here... who knows?
Cuz I've been trying to find out if an angel bends or breaks
Or shatters like a stone

I... I want to destroy something beautiful
For you, I want to destroy for you

Tonight, there's only an inch between pain and delight
And I'm full of Canadian whiskey and spite again
Destruction and creation are the same thing after all
The mighty always fall

I... I want to destroy something beautiful
For you, I want to destroy for you

Destruction and creation are the same thing after all
The mighty always fall

I... I want to destroy something beautiful
For you, I want to destroy something beautiful
For you, I want to destroy for...

Dude. I have finally been able to get online for the first time in a week, which sucks because I missed the whole "week of rock". BUT!

This song has got to be my favorite. I'm going to go back to Ohio, and we're going to rock the whole town down to the ground.

P.S. The kick drum on this one sounds sick!

I don't know how many times I have listened to this song already :) Congratulations Josh, this should be a real hit!
Michael (anon) · 5 years, 9 months ago
It would be only appropriate for someone to remix this song into unrecognizable, raw ugliness (a la Nine Inch Nails' "Fixed").
