Lotus – Cage The Elephant

For about the last six months or so one of my favourite songs has been Lotus by Cage the Elephant.

Woke before the morning sun
I found it tucked beneath the hills
I sat and watched it rise
It hit the sky and burst to flames
The lotus flower’s
Got me thinkin’ ’bout the way that we live
I’ve got this feelin’
It’s gonna stop


Driven by religion
Running backwards down a one way road
A course collision, split decision
Tryin’ to save your soul
Manifest Destiny
Is just a fancy word for murder
I’ve got this feelin’
It’s gonna stop

A billion faces runnin’ round my head
All got opinions but they don’t mean %&$*
Keep droppin’ bombs until the whole world’s dead
They said it’s all been done and it’s all been said
They’ll turn this message into a pop movement
A fashion statement, call it politics
You can mark my words they’ll put a spin on it
They say it’s all been done

Look outside the box my friend
Your heart’s been dead since who knows when
It seems we’ve missed the mark
Lost all hope and given in
Pack up the suitcase
Take that handkerchief and wipe off your chin
The fear that drives you

Needs to be stopped

A billion faces runnin’ round my head
All got opinions but they don’t mean %&$*
Keep droppin’ bombs until the whole world’s dead
They said it’s all been done and it’s all been said
They’ll turn this message into a pop movement
A fashion statement, call it politics
You can mark my words they’ll put a spin on it
They say it’s all been done

Fell into a daze
And found my mind was gone and laid to waste
A battleground indeed
Where holy wars have taken place
I saw the sun set watched it travel down
And tear through the ground
The hate that drives us
Needs to be stopped

The few youtube videos that I’ve seen don’t really do the recorded song justice. When I do my upgrades and get super cool blog-skills maybe I will come back and embed something wicked awesome.
