"Love And Destroy" as written by Alexander Paul Kapranos Huntley, Nicholas John Mccarthy, Robert Hardy and Paul Robert Thompson....
I'm so free I could lacerate
Rip the robes right off of my chest
I'll fly high above the moscowites' sky
I'm going to rip, rip, oh I'll never rest
I'm going to meet you at midnight
I'm going to meet you at midnight
You see, I'm not used to living alone
I gotta learn how to live or i'll die.

Margarita - love and destroy
Margarita - love and destroy
Mar-ga-rita - love and destroy
Margarita - love and destroy

I'm so free as I'm naked
Shining silver under the moon
I'm high above the moscowites' sky
I'm gonna rip, rip, I'll never sleep(???)
Oh I'm going to meet you at midnight
Oh I'm going to meet you at midnight
You see, I'll forget about living alone
As I learn how to live and to die.

Margarita - love and destroy
Margarita - love and destroy
Margarita - love and destroy
Margarita - love and destroy
Mar-gar-ritaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa

I'm so free as I meet you
Welcoming black, your the queen of the ball
It's dark beneath the moscowite' sky
But you give, you give me it all
I'm here with you at midnight
Oh I'm here with you at midnight
You see I forgot about living alone
As I learn, I learn how to die

Margarita - love and destroy
Margarita - love and destroy
Margarita - love and destroy
Margarita - love and destroy
Mar-gar-ritaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa
(x2)

Margarita - love and destroy
Margarita - love and destroy
Margarita - love and destroy
Margarita - love and destroy

    General CommentThis song is about a book called "Master and Margarita" by the Russian author Bulgakov. It's based on the chapter where Margarita flies over Moscow wreaking revenge on the enemies of her lover on her way to the ball of the dead.

    Totally awesome song. Too bad it didn't make the cut for the album.

    General CommentI love how these guys can take something like a book, or an assassination (All for you, Sophia) and make it catchy.

    General CommentI think this should have been on the album - in my opinion it's better than tell her tonight

    General Commenti think you forgot this verse :

    I'm so free as I'm naked
    Shining silver under the moon
    I'm high above the Muscovites' sky
    I'm gonna rip, rip, I'll never sleep
    I'm going to meet you at midnight (x2)
    You see, I'll forget about living alone
    As I learn how to live and to die

    Thanks for your explanation!

    General CommentI think it's better than Tell Her Tonight too. They've got some really great b-sides that deserve to be on an album.
    I realllly want to read The Master and Margarita, partly because I read The Stranger and that helped me understand the Interpol song, Evil a lot better.

    General CommentI've been listening to this song for years, but I only twigged today as I was reading The Master and Margarita; the phrase "Muscovite sky" came up and I thought of this song. Brilliant book, great song.

    For anyone who hasn't read Bulgakov's masterpiece, it's about a girl called Margarita who agrees to act as the hostess at Satan's ball when in exchange for the return of her missing lover. On her way to meet Satan, she takes a moonlight broomstick ride over Moscow.
