Sleater-Kinney - Ruins Lyrics



And just before midnight
You came into our room
A demon so frightening
Both ancient and new

Gonna leave the light on for you
Gonna leave the light on for you
Gonna leave the light on for you

You’re a creature of sorrow
You’re the beast we made
You scratch at our sadness
‘Til we’re broken and frayed

Gonna leave the light on for you
Gonna leave the light on for you
Gonna leave the light on for you

Eat the weak and devour the sane
From our bones, under monsters made
Smack the buildings, eat the places, destroy all day

Do you feast on nostalgia?
Take pleasure from pain
Look out ’cause the children
Will learn your real name

Gonna leave the light on for you
Gonna leave the light on for you
Gonna leave the light on for you

Eat the weak and devour the sane
From our bones, under monsters made
Smack the buildings, eat the places, destroy all day

Eat the weak and devour the sane
From our bones, under monsters made
Nothing left but ruins at the end of our day

Eat the weak and devour the sane
From our bones, under monsters made
Smack the buildings, eat the places, destroy all day

Eat the weak and devour the sane
From our bones, under monsters made
Nothing left but ruins at the end of our day
