Destroyer - Notorious Lightning

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...
 
Orchestra   Part
 
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!
AND   SOMEONE'S   GOT   TO   FALL   BEFORE   SOMEONE   GOES   FREE!
AND   SOMEONE'S   GOT   TO   FALL   BEFORE   SOMEONE   GOES   FREE!
AND   SOMEONE'S   GOT   TO   FALL   BEFORE   SOMEONE   GOES   FREE!
AND   SOMEONE'S   GOT   TO   FALL   BEFORE   SOMEONE   GOES   FREE!
AND   SOMEONE'S   GOT   TO   FALL   BEFORE   SOMEONE   GOES   FREE!
AND   SOMEONE'S   GOT   TO   FALL   BEFORE   SOMEONE   GOES   FREE!
