lyrics

Rock on, ooh yeah baby come on
We can throw it all out when we get done

Avalanche
You plant the dynamite, I’ll light a match

We’ve got no control, it’s such a relief
We can share this
We’ve always been thieves

Avalanche
We’ll talk about it as the boulders smash

The flesh is weak, the spirit willing
The CEOs are used to killing
It’s natural and beautiful
Those tragic smiles at the bottom of the hill

The flesh is weak, the spirit willing
Youth has never seemed so thrilling
Unsightly and unusual
Those groping limbs reaching out from the rubble

Avalanche
We’ll talk about it as the boulders smash
