Destroyer - The Bad Arts

Verse

Absolve,   absolve,   absolve
We   spent   the   better   part   of   the   day
Waiting   for   the   wave   to   hit   our   side   of   town
 
It   didn't
Absolve,   absolve,   absolve
I   washed   my   hands   of   the   stuff   of   legends
And   what   news   of   the   horizon?
I   hear   it's   all   just   a   horizontal   myth
So   stop   your   cruising,   start   your   criticizing,   oh
Indulge   yourself   for   once,   feel   medium   between   them
God   damn,   your   eyes
They   just   had   to   be   twin   prizes   waiting   for   the   sun
And   God   damn,   your   eyes
They   just   had   to   be   twin   prizes   waiting   for   the   sun
They   just   had   to   be   twin   prizes   waiting   for   the   sun
 
[Interlude]
 
[Verse]
See   them   sporting   those   eagle   iron-ons
You   made   me   swear   never   to   wear
Why   did   you   spend   the   '90s   cowering?
Why   did   you   spend   the   '90s   cowering?
And   they're   singing   those   inspirationals
You   penned   back   in   '72
And   the   hotels   of   choice   are   now   toasting   your   voice
As   the   spas   ring   out,   "What's   another   word   for   sacrament?"
 
[Interlude]
 
 
[Verse]
The   world   woke   up   one   day   to   proclaim
"Thou   shalt   not   take   part   in,   or   make,   bad   art"
In   these   tough,   tough   times
 
Friends   like   mine   would   rather   dash   than   dine
On   the   bones   of   what's   thrown   to   them
When   a   wave   of   her   wand   has   us   back   at   the   pond
Taking   notes   for   our   crooked   underground
 
 
[Verse]
The   world   woke   up   one   day   to   proclaim
"Thou   shalt   not   make   or   take   part   in   the   bad   arts"
You   see,   the   singer   sold   us   out
The   guitarist   lost   his   clout   on   Life-Of-The-Mind   Day
When   signs   become   impure   again
The   crowd   doesn't   know   where   or   when
To   let   it   all   hang   out
 
Bloodlet   yourself,   street   style
 
 
[Outro]
You've   got   the   spirit,   don't   lose   the   feeling
You've   got   the   spirit,   don't   lose   the   feeling
You've   got   the   spirit,   don't   lose   the   feeling
You've   got   the   spirit,   don't   lose   the   feeling
Don't   lose   the   feeling
(You've   got   the   spirit)   Don't   lose   the   feeling
(You've   got   the   spirit)   Don't   lose   the   feeling
(You've   got   the   spirit)   Don't   lose   the   feeling
(You've   got   the   spirit)   Don't   lose   the   feeling
(You've   got   the   spirit)   Don't   lose   the   feeling
(You've   got   the   spirit)   Don't   lose   the   feeling
(You've   got   the   spirit)   Don't   lose   the   feeling
(You've   got   the   spirit)   Don't   lose   the   feeling
(You've   got   the   spirit)   Don't   lose   the   feeling
(You've   got   the   spirit)   Don't   lose   the   feeling
(You've   got   the   spirit)   Don't   lose   the   feeling
