  • Now it's two minutes to midnight, and they're
    Building houses of cards
    It will spiral out until the day we all fall
    While the enemy's all around us, and he
    Slowly tears us apart
    It will spiral out until the day we all fall
    We're getting ready for the sound

    This self-consuming contradiction
    The more it turns the more we just deform
    But either way, you can't look in my dark room
    To bloom like a rose in the mouth of a gun
    We're reaching out in order to get shot down
    While the world around us just implodes
    With new names for "God" and "country"
    With new words for every song we sing

    And it's only to get shot down, hey
    And it's only to get shot

    I don't care if the whole world is burning, oh Lord (all men obey)
    There's certain things I forgot I should fear, hey (all men obey)
    Keep on screaming till your kingdom crumbles (all men obey)
    It won't stop until I'm sure you hear, hey (all men obey)
    I'm moaning on floor for your forgiveness (all men obey)
    But here they coming, the four winds blowing
    And four horses, I hear 'em coming
    Sh, we're gonna start over there

    And we'll spiral out singing now

    And it's only to get shot down (woah)
    And it's only to get shot down (woah)
    And it's only to get shot down (woah)
    And it's only to get shot down (woah)
    And it's only to get shot down (woah)
    And it's only to get shot down (woah)
    And it's only to get shot Writer/s: Franklin Fisher, John Mahan, Lee Tesche, Matthew Tong
