Standing on the edge of the palisades cliffs In the shadow of the skyline very far away A lightning rod that couldn't pull the storm from me I was 5 years old my best friends older brother died He fell from these cliffs The river washed him away the current pulled him downstream In our eyes, floating in the headlights, so we parked these cars Parent's garage Listen to the lullaby Of Carbon Monoxide
War all of the time In the shadow of the New York skyline We grew up too fast falling apart Like the ashes of American flags The sun doesn't rise We replaced it with an h-bomb explosion A painted jail cell of blood in the sky like Three Mile Island Nightmares on TV they used to sing us to sleep They burn on and on like an oil field Or a memory of what it felt like To burn on and on and not just fade away All those nights in the basement the kids are still screaming On and on and on and on
War all of the time In the shadow of the New York skyline We grew up too fast falling apart Like the ashes of American flags And we're blowing in the wind We don't know where to land So we kiss like little kids We used to be very tall buildings We've been falling for so long Now your eyes follow the sign on the edge of town They offer a welcome when you are leaving
War all of the time In the shadow of the New York skyline We grew up too fast falling apart Like the ashes of American flags The pieces fall it's like a last day parade And the fires in our streets start to rage, so wave, to the people that long to wave back, from the fabric of a flag that sang "love all of the time"
War all the time War all the time All of the time War all the time War all the time All of the time All of the time War all of the time [Repeat: x4]

Margaux from Nashville, TnI know it is allegedly not about war in a literal sense... But what do you guys think about this being the 9th song out of 11 on the album? Is there any meaning in that? Of course it also mentions NYC... just a thought. :)
Pat from Reading, Mathe beginig of the song is just bass played by Tim Payne
"Call Me Maybe" by Carly Rae Jepsen was the song of the summer in 2012 and a major meme. It got some help from her fellow Canadian Justin Bieber, who tweeted that it was "possibly the catchiest song I've ever heard."
