Eulogy For A Rock Band

Album: Everything Will Be Alright in the End (2014)
  • Goodbye heroes, you had a good run
    Fifteen years of ruling the planet
    But now your light's fading

    Adios rock band that we loved the most
    This is a toast to what you did
    And all that you were fighting for
    Who could do more when time marches on?
    Words come and go
    We will sing the melodies that you did long ago

    Women were screaming, guys were copying you
    'Cause you moved the people to sobbing, inspiring
    You spoke for the world in your songs

    Adios rock band that we loved the most
    This is a toast to what you did
    And all that you were fighting for
    Who could do more when time marches on?
    Words come and go
    We will sing the melodies that you did long ago

    (Ooh) We'll never forget the gems you made,
    (Ooh) Let 'em fade
    (Ooh) It's time that we laid you in your grave,
    (Ooh) Let 'em fade
    (Ooh) Goodbye

    Adios rock band that we loved the most
    This is a toast to what you did
    And all that you were fighting for
    Who could do more when time marches on?
    Words come and go
    We will sing the melodies that you did long ago Writer/s: DANIEL BRUMMEL, RIVERS CUOMO, RYEN SLEGR
