  • And on that day they'll tell you
    That life hung on with no clue
    The warning signs were all just missed or shattered down
    So it goes
    The kings all failed to tell us
    The madmen failed to sell us
    Of what would then befall the only life we know

    When they're burning signal fires
    To guide us to the fields
    We're building funeral pyres
    They all commit a final appeal

    The city lines are down
    The kerosene's run out
    The fact surreal
    We relied upon
    I shed this unclean skin
    And start to feel again
    'Cause all the shoulders I wish to cry on gone

    The paranoia gripped us
    Berate and then consume us
    The panic set in like a cancer to our hearts
    Spreading through
    We've been on fire like genius
    I pray for god to save us
    There was no answer, though
    Disease tore us apart
    We left bodies in the fields
    So numb that we forgot how to feel

    The city lines are down
    The kerosene's run out
    The fact surreal
    We relied upon
    I shed this unclean skin
    And start to feel again
    'Cause all the shoulders I wish to cry on gone

    He looked at the fields, and then his hands
    All I need is what I have
    Then fell a tear of happiness
    Oh, she watched it all crumble away
    Is this the end of yesterday?
    "Lord, I hope so" is all he said
    Gone are the cold cold wars
    All I've got are the ?
    And as we go forth
    I pray we'll remember this day

    Oh, we relied on now

    The city lines are down
    The kerosene's run out
    The fact surreal
    We relied upon
    I shed this unclean skin
    And start to feel again
    With no more shoulders, shoulders to cry on now

    No more, no more
    No more, no more
    No more, no more
    The weight that we once felt is gone Writer/s: Brandon Barnes, Joseph Principe, Timothy Mcilrath, Zach Blair
