The Great Die-Off

Album: The Black Market (2014)
  • There's a fire on the borders
    And it's burning down the walls you built high
    And there's a steady stream of anger
    And it's spilling from the coasts
    A tidal wave

    And the world says we reap what we sow
    To where I bury you up in my home
    The nights we'll reclaim but we're sick of the wait

    We want it all and we want it now
    Tonight I'll watch your fires burn out
    With guns in hand we pry these guns from yours
    We want it all and we want it now
    A tide has come in to drown you out
    We make ourselves at home while your body's still warm

    Creation tell us that the rituals
    Are only just clocks on wrong times
    And something triggers each
    And every time I hear you say
    God bless this place

    But your numbers are dwindling now
    Though endangered we'll still hunt you down
    With heads on a stake long may you reign

    We want it all and we want it now
    Tonight I'll watch your fires burn out
    With guns in hand we pry these guns from yours
    We want it all and we want it now
    A tide has come in to drown you out
    We make ourselves at home
    While your body's still warm

    And there's a fire on the borders
    And it's burning down the walls you built high
    And there's a steady stream of anger
    And it's spilling from the coasts
    A tidal wave

    We want the motherfucking world and we want it now
    Tonight I'll watch your fires burn out
    With guns in hand we pry these guns from yours

    No I don't want to wait
    I know I better way
    So step aside, come on or better yet just go away
    Our chance has finally come
    Tomorrow I'll be another one now
    No I'm not gonna wait
    We want it now
    Yeah we're dousing the flames
    We want it now Writer/s: BRANDON BARNES, JOSEPH PRINCIPE, TIMOTHY MCILRATH, ZACH BLAIR
