lyrics

This feeling in the air, it cuts just like a knife
O I waited on for the sun to rise
Like a rattle from the deep, when the oceans ate the sky
O I waited on for the sun to rise
And I waited like a fool waits for signs

Now, here we are,
The walls are caving in, the earth is crumbling
It’s wave after wave
Our world is a battlefield
The cities are alive, the ground is giving way
It’s wave after wave
All we care about is our cause and our manses

No burdens left to bear, so we burned on through the night
O we waited on for the moon to shine
Like a rattle from the deep, the crows they took the sky
O we waited on for the moon to shine
And in the fading light our skin began to change
And what we became was fearless
And dangerous

Now, here we are,
The walls are caving in, the earth is crumbling
It’s wave after wave
Our world is a battlefield
The cities are alight, the ground is giving way
It’s wave after wave
All we care about is our cause and our horrid clichés
And soon, it will all be dust
And from the dust we’ll be reborn
It’s 5.21; it’s 5.22, you buffoon—

Quiet now, the book you share is cold and bare,
Why should we lend, bleeding ears to a peddler like you
The motives run, a beating drum, a make-believe talent man,
Spreading fiction-like sin that grows unknown
Savage, foil, preach—we will dig a human hole
Wide enough to shelter
Savage motives run, emotions run
It’s over.
