Honey, I know I know you were born to give?And I also know I'm not the one you've been dying to slip off with into the night
?Cherished radical, I always knew you had it in you?Trials by fire are so easily won?Just try not to burn and things might not get worse?Hollowed-out valleys now rattle with the curse ?That tonight is not your night
It's not your night
That tonight is not your night
It's not your night

Well, I followed the cries to a second-story flat?And in praise of bad luck, I threw down the homemade hat she made?Soon, the feral beast did beautify our wounds with a body that knew?You shouldn't hurt the ones you love
Unless you really want to

Tried to celebrate the world, not hurl insults at a girl?But that finite rush which destroys every one of us it's the good destruction?Yeah, Hannah, you heard it here first
It's the good destruction

Now it's one forty-five and for some reason it's the season of trying to stay alive?So, let's stick together and breathe beneath the weather?It will be our doing

Son, given the right occasion
I'd put myself up for sale to post the necessary bail that would free you from this kingdom?Oh, but tonight is not your night?No, it's not your night
No, tonight is not your night
It's not your night
Oh, but tonight is not your night?No, it's not your night
No, tonight is not your night
No, it's not your night

La la la la la la la la la....

    My InterpretationOne day, all Destroyer songs will have at least one comment...

    These songs are so ambiguous its amazing. He leaves them up for interpretation.
    This song to me is about someone waiting for the day life all comes together.
    And every day that its not that day is a let down. That let down is shared by every human being that its a part of our collective conscious: "Hollowed-out valley now rattle with the curse"

    And until that day, that point in your life, "Just try not to burn and things might not get worse"
