The State

This song is by Destroyer and appears on the album Trouble In Dreams (2008).

Oh, The State cut off my arms
And the state tore my eyes with her nails.
Hey, I was just put on this earth--a bad wind to trash the sails of all you evil men!

You should know somewhere in the night
There's a blue broken drum playing dead.

And that's... good to know!

Oh, The State tore out our hearts
And The State exposed our hearts
And wounded me, gave me this bad knee, tore down my baby's favorite tree...

But, oh!
You should know somewhere in the night
There's a blue broken drum playing dead.

And that's good to know!

Loose lips sink the lives of disgusting women,
So the State rolled me up into a ball.
I crushed diamonds in the fall and traded them for bread!
Turn away if you should hear me begin to sing!
I look like a fucking monster with this wing!
Craving new experiences, so what--

Oh but maybe you should know!
Somewhere in the night
There's a blue broken drum playing dead!
