Hang Em High

Album: A Static L'ullaby (2006)
  • This life in a car crash
    This life in a car crash
    Can we make it out alive

    He finds himself
    He's lost in
    The breath between life and drowning

    Cauterize
    These open wounds
    The burning flesh
    The smell
    Of these past five years
    Paralyzed
    With no will to move
    The killing grounds
    The Stakes
    Of these past five years
    These past five years

    And it's more than just a loss
    But it's over
    We're not singing mournful thoughts
    And it's over
    And I can't wait
    Can't wait
    'Till you give it all away
    And we're giving up our lives
    For this revolution

    For this revolution
    This revolution

    Realize
    That the broken glass
    The caution tape
    The cries
    Are just parting ties with the times you spent alone
    We have been left to make it alone
    Running through these flooded hallways
    Can we make it out alive

    And it's more than just a loss
    But it's over
    We're not singing mournful thoughts
    And it's over
    And I can't wait
    Can't wait
    'Till you give it all away
    And we're giving up our lives
    For this revolution

    These open wounds
    Still run
    This broken glass
    Has left me so
    So individual
    So individual
    So individual
    In time
    This is life in
    A car crash

    And it's more than just a loss
    But it's over
    We're not singing mournful thoughts
    And it's over
    And I can't wait
    Can't wait
    'Till you give it all awa
    (Can't wait, can't wait)
    And we're giving up our lives
    For this revolution

    And it's more than just a loss
    But it's over
    We're not singing mournful thoughts
    And it's over
    And I can't wait
    Can't wait
    'Till you give it all away
    And we're giving up our lives
    For this revolution
