Blackfire Choked Our Death is a song interpreted by Beck.

Blackfire Choked Our Death lyrics

Lightning burned the fields
Blackfire choked our breath
We huddled in the kitchen
Sand poured through the walls

We looked to one another
The children shut their mouths
The whirling and the curving
Of destruction filled our house

The blood-thirsty yearning
Clamored all about us
Darkness rose up
From the floor like a demon

Fearful of the death
That buckled through our minds
Shaken to the core
Foresaken and unkind

Well, the sun came a-shinin
And the dust did settle down
Birds and jack-rabbits
Lay dead on the ground

Trembled in the skys
Sparks shot forward
Causing us to fly

Take some breakfast
But the grit was in our food
And everywhere around us
Starvation broke on through

My husband stood a-starin'
At the plentiful disaster
God was in his eyes
But death was in his heart

Dried up whiskey
Chickens in the house
Stolen car stereo
Cholesterol on your mouth

Stolen car stereo
Snowman all in flames
Deluxe cockroach
Telling me what's real

Black Sabbath playing
I wake up in my socks
Candle all a-burnin'
But her face is on tv
