She comes on like a stone
But you don’t know where from she was thrown
Like a burning meteor from miles high
Shes looking for a place to land
She said you got yourself some sand
And whatever you’d reply she took as yes

She comes out the deep?
With her newly planted seeds and soon you’re
Thrown down on your knees and then you’re dead
Then before you know the weeds are all beastly overgrown
With all the wild seeds he sews in your sleeve

You’ve got to know you’ll never let her go
Lightning bolt!!
Lightning bolt!!
Lightning bolt!!

Always something and never nothing
Isn’t that the way we’re taught to dream… to sleep in?
Oh looking through the worn our pages
In stages when you knew not who was me
Yeah! yeah! yeah!
Until the lightning strike sets you free

You’ve got to know you’ll never let her go
Lightning bolt!!
Lightning bolt!!
Lightning bolt!!

The crashing stormy waves are over shoreline everyday
Until the castle on the waves turns to sand
Then before you know the weeds are all beastly overgrown
With all the wild seeds you’ve sewn in your sleeve
And with no repair in sight ??
No doubt which way ??
As you open her world why disappear to you
And your death will soon grind at me
[...]
All your problems, they won’t die with you

Yeah yeah…. yeah yeah…. yeah yeah
She’s a lightning bolt
Never let it go
She’s a lightning bolt
