Listen and enjoy.



"LIGHTNING BOLT"

she come on like a stone
but you don't know where from she was thrown
like a burning meteor
from miles high

looking for a place to land
She said have you got yourself some sand
And whatever you replied she took as yes

Now she comes after me
With her newly planted seeds
And soon you're thrown down on your knees
And then you dig/you're dead
And then before you know
the weeds are obesely overgrown
With the all the wild seeds she sows
in your sleep

you gotta know you'll never let her go
she's a lightning bolt
lightning bolt
lightning bolt

Always something and never nothing
isn't that the way we're taught to be, to be
flipping through the worn out pages
and stages when you knew not who to be
until the lightning strike sets you free

you gotta know you'll never let her go
She's a lightning bolt
lightning bolt
lightning bolt

crashing stormy waves
erode her shoreline every day
until the castle of her ways turns to sand

she holds her love in breast
as her birds fall from the nest
flying towards the great northwest (yeah, yeah, yeah)

And with no repair in sight there is
No God with such might
As to open her world wide with subterfuge
And your death will soon arrive
As she finally decides
That all her problems, they won’t die with you

never let her go
Shes your lightning bolt
never let her go
She's true

she's your rock and roll
she's a lightning bolt
uncontrollable
like you

Oh shit, I'm out of sync with you guys again. This sounds like they wrote it during the rain delay.

Sounds like a Riot Act B-Side. 2.5/5

I got an Undone vibe. Man, I think this sounds incredible.

not a huge fan of what I made out of the lyrics at the start. I think the first half is pretty catchy and then mike just plays for like a two minute outro. I expect i'll like this.


Definitely lighter feeling than Mind Your Manners.

these were smart songs to debut live. They seem pretty digestible on a first listen.

Wow, so that's weird. I just arrived from the new album thread, where people are generally crying into their laps about this song, to find that a few here like it.

Also, a Riot Act bside would make me jizz.

I like the way the song starts back into the second verses.

The second verse is pretty good.

Yeah, there are some interesting pushes and transitions that I didn't notice the first time. I'm gonna listen again, and then I think my wife is bringing me back falafel from town.

Nice jam at the end. Patterns were fine for a little while, but I'm happy to put them behind. Stone is playing a nifty little part underneath Mike that I didn't catch the first few listens.

also, the song seems to be called lightning, not lightning bolt.
