Cold War Kids - On the Night My Love Broke Through Lyrics

On the night that my love broke through
On the night that my love broke through
Revelations that came unglued
On the night that my love broke through

Cell doors were opened
Guards step out the way
Prisoners got one acre of land
and one year's pay
Flowers longed since dead
Stiffened at the neck
Colors came back in green and yellow and in red

Unemployed cowboy staggered on Fairfax
Trucks pulled up and fifteen men hollered and hopped in back

A copy of Bukowski
at the bottom of the stack
Got pickup by some dropout
who read it front to back
Shoving the death hand of his past!

Ants were crawling out of
grimy bathtub drains
Janitor was laughing he had finally gone insane
City buses swerving
arriving right on time
Vending machines were selling white wine by the dime

Streetlights got a burst of
electricity
Sparks danced across windshields
Like a grand finale

Metal detector's beeping
Sound was deafening
Everywhere bearded men dug up wedding rings
We all stopped to listen to him sing!

On the night when my love broke through
On the night when my love broke through
Revelations that came unglued
On the night when my love broke through
On the night
On the night
On the night
On the night
