Douse it all in gasoline
And set this cardboard move scene on fire
A dance of light reflecting off the props as they dissolve into the dust
That makes up everything

I tried to leave the county once
I called up the ambulance
To take me away
But a girl I met with a smoky voice drags my heart around like the other boys
So i've got no other choice but to stay
And wait
And wait

But the time is always running out on you
You find it's always out on you
Find it's always out on you can't wait
But the time is always running out on you
You find it's always out on you
Find it's always out and you can't wait

Maybe after surgery
remove all my hyperbole and lies
This quiet conflagration come to take us all to heaven
As it sets this sickly stage of ours on fire
But we'll ignore this quiet night
And we'll ignore these city lights of fire
As they raise their hands towards heaven
And we'll ignore this eternity
And we'll ignore these heavenly choirs
As they raise their hands towards heaven

And we'll ignore this quiet night
And we'll ignore these city lights of fire
As they raise their hands towards heaven
And we'll ignore this eternity
And we'll ignore these heavenly choirs
As they raise their hands towards heaven

You'll be holding on to me
You'll be singing quietly inside this city gates
As they burn away
