Destroyer - City Of Daughters Lyrics




Oh, City of Daughters,
Is that what you wanted to be?
Oh, City of Daughters,
Is that what you wanted to be?
Oh, City of Daughters,
Is it not safe to say you've come when called?
A minor point of contention:
It's the pointlessness of the invention.
Trust, there's no need to remind us
We're all dying alone tonight!

In a City of Daughters.
Sister, I confess, I have forgotten just what it is that you wanted to be.
Fluffing and a-folding those clothes that you were sold in
To servicing what it is you always wanted to be.
In Vancouver, things are simple when they fit you to a "T".
Once again, you have refused the new pornographies
A minor bone of contention:
It's the soullessness of the convention.
Rock 'n' Roll sure came through for you.
Why would anybody want it to?

What is it about music that lends itself so well
To business-as-fucking-usual?
A minor source of contention:
The resourcelessness of the convention.
Rock 'n' Roll sure came through for you.
Why would anyone want it to
When we can burn the living
Proof, go!

  1. Don't Panic

    Love the corny space-techno part in the middle. Although when I'm walking down the street and that part comes on, it makes me feel ridiculous even though no one can hear it obviously.

  2. gnarly town

    a classic early Destroyer song

    Pesquisa Você encontrará não moscas
    Em um parabol deste tamanho não, você não vai
    Com todos os nossos passes flagrantes
    Incorremos sobre o povo
    Privatizar os monumentos
    E divulgar que as torres não machucar mais

    Em seguida, eles usaram a doer

    Corrida das muralhas alta
    'Sob o dossel da mentira como se fosse
    Em meio a vestígios sutis
    Se partícula ou osso
    Nós detectamos uma fraqueza , sim
    A sensação que temos afinados não funcionam mais

    E eles usaram para trabalhar

    Em meio a vestígios sutis
    Se partícula ou osso
    Nós detectamos uma fraqueza , sim
    A sensação que temos afinados não funcionam mais

    Em seguida, eles usaram para trabalhar

    Pode-se dizer que perdemos a corrida espacial
    Pode-se dizer que perdemos a corrida espacial
    Pode-se dizer que perdemos a corrida espacial
    E outro pode-se dizer que estamos ganhou

  5. Moézyo de Lima

    Search you'll find no flies
    On a parabol this size no you won't
    With all our flagrant passes
    We incur upon the people
    To privatize the monuments
    And publicize that steeples don't hurt anymore

    Then they used to hurt

    Race the ramparts high
    'neath the canopy of lies as it were
    Amidst the subtle traces
    Whether particle or bone
    We detect a weakness, yes
    The sense we have honed don't work anymore

    And they used to work

    Amidst the subtle traces
    Whether particle or bone
    We detect a weakness, yes
    The sense we have honed don't work anymore

    Then they used to work

    One could say we've lost the space race
    One could say we've lost the space race
    One could say we've lost the space race
    And another one could say we're won
