Riff: Queens of the Stone Age – “My God is the Sun”

Apr 10, 2013

Heal them, like fire from a gun/Kneeling, my god is the Sun/Healing, kneeling/Godless heathens

from My God is the Sun lyrics by Queens of the Stone Age

Palm Desert rawkers de-robe a six-year cloak with a blazing, redemptive howler, just destroyed with Dave Grohl’s arms, as Homme offers mirror-coated, psych-searing sadistic rejuvenation for heathens, where Muse-staccato fury and the Sun God heals all. Basically, reverse vampires, this is your jam.
