Beck - Blackfire Choked Our Death lyrics

Lightning burned the fields

Black fire choked our breath

We huddled in the kitchen

Sand poured through the walls

We looked to one another

The children shut their mouths

The whirling and the turning

Of destruction filled our house

The blood-thirsty yearning

Clamored all about us

Darkness rose up

From the floor like a demon

Fearful of the death

That buckled through our minds

Shaken to the core

Foresaken and unkind

Well, the sun came a-shinin

And the dust did settle down

Birds and jack-rabbits

Lay dead on the ground


Trembled in the skys

Sparks shot forward

Causing us to fly

Take some breakfast

But the grit was in our food

And everywhere around us

Starvation broke on through

My husband stood a-starin

At the plentiful disaster

God was in his eyes

But death was in his heart

Dried up whiskey

Chickens in the house

Stolen car stereo

Cholesterol on your mouth

Stolen car stereo

Snowman all in flames

Deluxe cockroach

Telling me what's real

Black Sabbath playing

I wake up in my socks

Candle all a-burnin
