Tonight, a black out
A panic attack plan with no time to figure it out
We’ve issued a code red already dead
No open sign, no beak of light
That said:

Don’t give it away
You want the truth
Its all answers now

All hands on deck we’re going down
All hands on deck we’re going down

Screaming, the end is near
So rest in peace cause we’re the ones that put ourselves here
Water rises, now hold your breath and count down
This ship of sinners and saints are just waiting to drown

Don’t give it away
You want the truth
Its all answers now

All hands on deck, we’re going down
No plan but ours can take us now
So try to understand
Since we got lost and we get tossed around

All hands on deck we’re going down

Aaaaaaaaaa
Aaaaaaaaaa

Of all the chaos and order there’s no drift to catch the law of the unknown
So take refunds on your borders where
The truth is that we all must die alone

All hands on deck we’re going down
No plan but ours can take us now
So try understand
Since we got lost and we get tossed around

All hands on deck we’re going down

    General CommentSo take with burns when you're bored of her
    The truth is that we all must die alone

    General CommentBleh.. not a fan of Mae's new sound/lyrics at all. Their new music doesn't even come close in quality compared to their older songs. These lyrics are also frighteningly similar to Waking Ashland's "Hands on Deck".. only Waking Ashland's song is much better. Whatever. I'm disappointed.

    General Commentit's the viriginia motto, it means death to the tyrants.
    it's a metaphorical situation where there are a bunch of people on a boat that is sinking, the singer knows that boat's going down but they don't. It's their fault that the boat is sinking and the song is challenging people to take a stand instead of being tossed around and drowning.

    General Commentforam: It actually means "Thus always to tyrants." Sic, thus, semper, always. :D It's also what John Wilkes Booth supposedly shouted after he shot Abe Lincoln.

    Anyway, I agree that this album isn't as good as their older stuff. It was a step backwards for them. Ah well.
