Algiers – A Hymn for an Average Man Lyrics

A Hymn for an Average Man by Algiers
Album : The Underside of Power
Released : 2017

Somewhere down along the line I lost the plot

You think nothing has changed?
Horrified to find that what you made has risen up

And now your hate has a name

So let a sigh ring out

Denial. Deny it. Deny it

Draw a cold hand across your mouth
A muffled sound
While you lie there and wait
Listen to them calling out and come for you in silence

For the mess that you have made

So let a sigh ring out Denial. Deny it. Deny it

So let a sigh ring out Denial. Deny it. Deny it

(Ignore their screaming. You got away with it.)

Nothing is opened up

No sound in the room

● “Irony. Utility. Pretext. ”

[ Quotable ]
Find your favorite color
So you can wash it out
In your hymns
Correcting primitive cracks
Into straight lines
Superiority is born again

● “But She Was Not Flying ”

[ Quotable ]
And now he flips the coin of power with all of his friends
Deciding who is fit to go out and die
And who is black enough to be left behind
And who will model their exceptional lie
And just how many they can murder at the border line

● “And When You Fall ”

[ Quotable ]
When you got itYou forgot it was never yoursYou won’t know how but when it falls down
You’ll know exactly who we are
