Piece it together, take it apart
The beginning and ending, the stop and the start
The city is breathing through power lines
And the babies are teething but can't read the signs
They're too young to know
All the things that they said
One day they'll be living
And the next they'll be dead
But if that sounds too morbid,
Too finite and macabre
Let's stop second-guessing
And figure out who we are, we are, we are…

From the tops of the trees (trees)
From our throats we will scream
We will weaken their knees
We will say what we mean
Tonight, tonight the veil comes down
Yeah, tonight the veil comes…

Our words are weaving, languages intertwine
From the tips of our tongues
To the back of our spines
The city is teething, glowing and white
But its secrets are dirty
And we'll expose them tonight… tonight all right

From the tops of the trees
From our throats we will scream
We will weaken their knees
We will say what we mean
Tonight, tonight the veil comes down
Yeah, tonight the veil comes down

Yeah, tonight the veil comes down
Tonight the veil comes…
The veil comes down

Tonight, tonight the veil comes down
Tonight the veil comes down
Tonight the veil comes down
Tonight the veil comes down
Yeah, tonight the veil comes down
Tonight the veil comes down
