Army of Ancients

  • Lyrics
  • An army of ancients can rise from the ground
    And tear every nation apart
    And I'd still be sitting there counting my cards
    Wondering when will it stop

    The oceans and forests could collide into one
    And my [unknown] in a spark
    And I'd still be sitting there twiddling my thumbs
    Wondering when will it stop

    How did the fox get the rave and the crows?
    I got it, I got it
    Oh yeah

    Why at the creek did the dog lose the bone?
    I got it, I got it
    Oh yeah

    The man can come back on his fiery thrown
    To measure the failures in heart
    And I'd still be whistling dixie alone
    Wondering when will it stop

    I don't want to wake up, I don't want to move
    I'd ask and assume it'd stick to the boot
    I'm sorry
    Well, I take what I want in the dawn's early light

    How did the fox get the rave and the crow?
    Oh yeah, oh yeah, oh yeah

    Why did the hen pick grains in the snow
    Oh yeah, oh yeah, oh yeah

    Why did the brother bury his gold?
    Oh yeah, oh yeah, oh yeah

    Where took the ref when the kids came along?
    Oh yeah, oh yeah, oh yeah

    Why did the mouse help the bees with the floor?
    Oh yeah, oh yeah, oh yeahWriter/s: SCOTT MCMICKEN, TOBY LEAMAN
