Let's run for cover
We gotta escape
They're dropping bombs on the Empire State
And the streets are filled with children
Who will never grow old
All because their lives are all worth less than gold

This is our future going up in flames
Ashes to ashes, that is all that will remain
In this world filled with corruption
Hatred and greed
If we carry on like this, this is all our lives will be

This is our home
They'll drop the bombs, they'll let them go
All in the name of control
We'll sit in our homes and watch the bombs come through our doors

Can we evade this?
This evil fate
Or are we damned to be the product of greed's waste?
We'll find out all the answers
But will it be too late?
They'll let us know when we watch the news on channel 8

This is our home
They'll drop the bombs, they'll let them go
All in the name of control
We'll sit in our homes and watch the bombs come through our doors

    General CommentWow, I'm amazed at the lack of comment. Well, I'm putting one up now, if only to make myself happy!
    I think the song has a pretty clear message: The world is a bad place. Love Equals Death is wondering if we will be able to grab that branch, or fall down the cliff to extinction. That's what I get from it anyway. Warped Tour '06 = Great CDs.
