i'll wreck this coming down like the apocalypse.

22 February 1986

i'll wreck this coming down like the apocalypse.


the car's on fire and there's no driver at the wheel / and the sewers are all muddied with a thousand lonely suicides / and a dark wind blows / the government is corrupt / and we're on so many drugs / with the radio on and the curtains drawn // we're trapped in the belly of this horrible machine / and the machine is bleeding to death // the sun has fallen down / and the billboards are all leering / and the flags are all dead at the top of their poles // it went like this: // the buildings tumbled in on themselves / mothers clutching babies picked through the rubble / and pulled out their hair // the skyline was beautiful on fire /all twisted metal stretching upwards / everything washed in a thin orange haze // i said: "kiss me, you're beautiful - / these are truly the last days" // you grabbed my hand and we fell into it / like a daydream or a fever // we woke up one morning and fell a little further down - / for sure it's the valley of death // i open up my wallet / and it's full of blood

(dead flag blues, GODSPEED YOU BLACK EMPEROR!)
