lyrics

Charlie’s eyes trace the path
of a bullet
cutting clouds into lines
in the air
watch his face, lines that trace
this godforsaken place
this place
this place

It’s all I can do to cry
under the ever-blacked
night sky
I’m singing behind the choir
watch as the walls fall
on your
empire

Daddy says we’ll wait around
for the earthquake
seismographs counting cracks
in the ground
He swears this round
is the sound
of the sky falling down
falling down
down

It’s all I can do to cry
under the ever-blacked
night sky
I’m singing beneath the floor
knowing that you’ve
got nothing
to be sorry for
