Afghan Whigs, The - The Lottery Lyrics




Let it be light, baby, where there's none
Memories bite, baby, never done
I control, collect, collide
Come in slow, but that's alright
Let it be night, baby, come undone

Let it be night, baby, watch them run
The enemy lies waiting for the sun
I control, collect, collide
To let go is to bet your life
Let it be light, baby, 'til there's none

The lottery, the ritual
The consequence, the criminal
Come back to me, I've been them all
Come bedtime, come bad times

Let it be night then I'm born again
Remedy disguise the poison pen
You let her slip out of the tourniquet again

The lottery
Still waiting for the show
A part of me can't let it go
I'll fade to black, a parable
Incognizant, incomparable

And now we've reached the end
One for now
One for always
One for me
One for yourself
I'm ready
I'm ready
Ready

    Debonair by Afghan Wigs is amazing. Dulli can't sing a bad song.. his vpice is too good. I also like his work in The Gutter Twins.

  21. Nakashu

    I gotta learn that trick with the bow and arrow.

    lfmontag

    @collieflower922 and this is the worst answer ever in human history

    collieflower922

    @lfmontag Hey I'm human maybe i didn't give a good answer but I tried. But to say it's worst answer in human history is just a childish comment. Grow up DB

    lfmontag

    @collieflower922
    i'm just trying to understand your point, it was a joke about a single dance step, not about guitar skills

    collieflower922

    @lfmontag Really a dance step called the bow an arrow? I've never heard of that dance step LOL, well I'm bad an the joke was on me are you the original person Nakashu that commented on this video an using a different name? Cause I'm alittle confused. Well anyway good luck on learning the new dance step.

    lfmontag

    @collieflower922 HAVE YOU WATCHED THE VIDEO?

  22. Jeff Pazen

    he killed at Metro last year, and I thought he was going into Afib when he came out on stage to play guitar. this is so great, Dulli.

    Judith Drake

    OMG!!!! LOVE this!!!

  23. pauline hogness-richardson

    How could you NOT love to dance to this song??? AWESOME AS USUAL XO

  24. zott28

    Did he play guitar on the last song at the Filmore show? If so, the guy was just as energetic on stage, but next to Dulli's coolness/sexy-ness it looked a little goofy. Probably what I would look like if I was on stage.

    asiansplenda

    Midway through the fall tour he started playing guitar on "Lost In The Woods" https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MZisewN5ZrY

  25. Matteo Zaghini
