Everything Beautiful
(Must Be Broken)

From your memories of fields at dusk
To the little child’s innocent trust
From which he’ll someday have awoken,
Everything beautiful must be broken.

Everything beautiful must be broken.
I hear the Devil’s hammer approachin’.
Everything beautiful must be broken.

From the Buddhas of Afghanistan
To the piano player’s lovely hands,
There’s an evil wind a-blowin’.
Everything beautiful must be broken.

Everything beautiful must be broken.
Bombed-out monuments still smokin’.
Everything beautiful must be broken.

Seeds we sow survive the fire,
When the rains begin.
We know what’s been born must die,
To be born again.

Everything beautiful must be broken.
Bombed-out monuments still smokin’.
Everything beautiful must be broken.
