pink and yellow lights
litter up the countryside
it's like fifteen million fireflies
have eaten my eyes
they call it paranoia
but would you agree
the gunpowder scent that salts the air
is a little bit frightening?
i can't believe what i'm hearing!
can you believe what you're seeing?
can you believe you're seeing bombs
dropping from the sky?
to fall asleep to their lullablies
these shelters act as coffins here
the metal untact
the metal attack
i can't believe what i'm hearing!
do you believe what you're seeing?
do you believe you're seeing bombs?
are you listening?
why aren't you listening?
to those that would survive:
become a light for those who cannot shine
make more of love and less of lies
if this promise could be made good
we wouldn't have to knock on wood
you've inspired me
i always knew you could

    General CommentThe last 7 lines of this song are amazing in both lyrical value and musical presentation. I can't help but think this is about war...and what will tear our country apart. The last part is the call to those left after the dust settles. But once again, I suck at this stuff.
