Destroyer - Song For America Lyrics




I wrote a song for America they told me it was clever,
Jessica's gone on vacation on the dark side of town forever.
Who knew? Who knew?

I wrote a song for America they told me it was clever,
Jessica's gone on vacation on the dark side of town forever.
Who knew? Who knew?

I wrote a song for America they told me it was clever,
Jessica's gone on vacation on the dark side of town forever.
Who knew? Who knew?

Who knew? Who knew?

Winter, spring, summer and fall,
Animals crawl, towards death's embrace.
Winter, spring, summer, fall, unspeakable!
In a morning, on a Sunday, just wasted in the rain!

Winter, spring, summer and fall,
Animals crawl, towards death's embrace.
Winter, spring, summer, fall, unspeakable!
In a morning, on a Sunday, just wasted in the rain!

Winter, spring, summer and fall,
Animals crawl, towards death's embrace.
Winter, spring, summer, fall, unspeakable!
In a morning, on a Sunday, just wasted in the rain!

Destroyer Song For America Comments
  1. Mobin Rood

    Can anyone tell me the meaning of this song?

    Roboparadox

    It's a song about how Dan Bejar wrote the Song for America. Note that we the listener never actually gets to hear the song in question, merely his recollection of writing the Song for America.

    It's the Tenacious D - Tribute of Canadian indie rock

    Andrew Guerra

    Mobin Rood it’s about a girl who came to America to become a star but became a drug addict.
