Mother Mother - Born In A Flash Lyrics



Photograph, lookin' down at me
I'm lookin' at the past
Something about my family in high contrast
Something about my infancy in white and black
Something about my memories
In a photograph, a portrait of the past

Born in a flash

Polaroid, 1954
It was a Polaroid
'55 through '56
Were undestroyed, daddy was an anarchist
We can't afford
Somebody catching wind of this here

Polaroid, a portrait of before

Born in a flash
Born in a flash
A little piece of the past
Born in a flash

Ohh
Ohhhh, Aahhhh, Ohhh

Photograph, a portrait of the past
Born in a flash
Born in a flash
Born in a flash
Born in a flash

Mother Mother Born In A Flash Comments
  1. Artistic Alex

    This song really makes me think of my dissociation.

    I see things in third person, especially my child hood. My memories are also like photos and videos, only the good moments are captured in pretty and artistic ways, when in reality the world is more than a picture on a screen.

    My childhood was traumatic, but all I see are pretty pictures that aren’t mine.

    Can anyone relate?

    lonely soul

    No but I feel bad for you and hope you have a good rest of your life

  2. Lynx with a harpøøn

    Kinda reminds me of Bohemian Rhapsody for some reason.

  3. GitGitBra Productions

    Does anyone know the meaning behind this song?

  4. happened in the box

    I love this song so much, I wish more people will hear it. And it paints a vivid picture with a great story.... so underrated

  5. Jay Chaosbringer

    i love this song so much cause its just so easy to imagine a whole story in your head by listening to it, now excuse me while i listen to it on repeat for days

  6. HGalore

    I absolutely love their discography and how many different instruments they use. I notice something new everytime I listen

    Bilfy Snart

    It's so colorful

  7. Falling Stars

    Waw ! It's a beautiful single ! *-*

  11. Moon Flame

    Why this band hasn't been featured in Life Is Strange, I have no idea

    rojão

    Max was a hipster little shit that liked indie folk more and the game had a folk-ish vibe either tho

    Moon Flame

    Kobra Kid lol true, but for another character it'd definitely fit. Chloe, maybe? Rachel? If not the original, then in Before the Storm for sure.

    Kim Henderson

    @Moon Flame They for sure deserve the publicity. At least LiS and BtS used Daughter's music though. She's pretty cool too.

    Aes Lake

    Bruh, did you write this high, and came back a year later sober. Lmao.

    Just a bug

    @Aes Lake No, I've never been high before

    Aes Lake

    Just a bug

    Happy Birthday

    Photograph, lookin' down at me
    I'm lookin' at the past
    Something about my family in high contrast
    Something about my infancy in white and black
    Something about my memories
    In a photograph, a portrait of the past

    Born in a flash

    Born in a flash
    Born in a flash
    Born in a flash
    Born in a flash

    spacetimeenigma it's actually all destroyed, not undestroyed :0

    idealhoneybear

    @breadpimp That's what I've always thought since I heard it and looked at the lyrics on Genius. Undestroyed never made a whole lot of sense to me.

  18. hushmandres

    Fuck yeah

  19. homestucks everywhere

    this song is so good, i love the acoustics.

  20. Greedy Wolf

    Sound a lot like Sober from Tool. Lol. I like both songs.
