Cold War Kids

Cold War Kids - On the Night My Love Broke Through

rate me

On the night that my love broke through

On the night that my love broke through

Revelations that came unglued

On the night that my love broke through

Cell doors were opened

Guards step out the way

Prisoners got one acre of land

and one year's pay

Flowers longed since dead

Stiffened at the neck

Colors came back in green and yellow and in red

Unemployed cowboy staggered on Fairfax

Trucks pulled up and fifteen men hollered and hopped in back

A copy of Bukowski

at the bottom of the stack

Got pickup by some dropout

who read it front to back

Shoving the death hand of his past!

Ants were crawling out of

grimy bathtub drains

Janitor was laughing he had finally gone insane

City buses swerving

arriving right on time

Vending machines were selling white wine by the dime

Streetlights got a burst of

electricity

Sparks danced across windshields

Like a grand finale

Metal detector's beeping

Sound was deafening

Everywhere bearded men dug up wedding rings

We all stopped to listen to him sing!

On the night when my love broke through

On the night when my love broke through

Revelations that came unglued

On the night when my love broke through

On the night

On the night

On the night

On the night
