My dear, I'll give you sixty seconds to disappear
And if you don't get out of here... who knows?
Cuz I've been trying to find out if an angel bends or breaks
Or shatters like a stone

I... I want to destroy something beautiful
For you, I want to destroy for you

Tonight, there's only an inch between pain and delight
And I'm full of Canadian whiskey and spite again
Destruction and creation are the same thing after all
The mighty always fall

I... I want to destroy something beautiful
For you, I want to destroy for you

Destruction and creation are the same thing after all
The mighty always fall

I... I want to destroy something beautiful
For you, I want to destroy something beautiful
For you, I want to destroy for...

    General CommentThis girl seems to drag him all around using him, then loving him. As much as he hates the way she treats hih, he still can't get enough. The destroying something beautiful is probably saying that this girl is so beautiful but her treatment of him shoudl be destroyed. She's been driving him to drink like crazy, hr is always all over the place with destruction on his mind.

    General CommentWell, the song is a direct homage to the movie "Fight Club," if you recognize the quote...the rest falls into place if you see the movie. The song is rather well done, though. :-)
