Angel Olsen Creator, Destroyer Lyrics

I watch from a tower in the back of my mind

I watch from a window as the living walk by

Down below

Walking with quiet dreams

Walking out quiet day

And in my head

I might be sorry it makes no difference now

I might be wishing I had someplace to go

Hit the streets

Out in search for the self that has left me lying

And I never seem to notice

It’s too late before I know that all

The love inside has been empty

The world we made has been ending

And like a ghost that hangs around and won’t forgive its earthly sins

I’ve carried on this love for you

It’s how my body lives

My darling

How are you?

How have you been lately?

I only seem to speak to you of superficial things

Creator, you destroy me

You know my hunger well

And yet you starve me

Until I’m begging on my knees

And these are a few of very many things

I can’t begin to say out loud

If only this song could carry us on

But I know I’m only entertaining myself

I felt that even after I’ve been stripped of all my pride

There still remains a place for you to crawl up inside

To crawl up inside

To crawl up inside

And I’m out of my mind

Out of my mind

Murderous bitch, I’m out of my mind

I’m out of my mind

To be in love with you

The way that I’m in love with you

The way that I’m in love with you

Fuck this and everything we’ve done

Fuck you

Fuck you and your lies
