You always said we'd inherit the world
I always believed and for what it's worth
We were devoted

Through all the premises and all the grief
We were incisive and it might just be me
But are you devoted

We all were saved
We all were saved

As upon horizons
Initial insurgence
Our faith blows away
Counting our blessings with a broken abacus
Will not get us anywhere

We guessed that our choice died aeons ago
Will you be brave
We all blow smoke in the face of the truth
Just like you say
I thought I was saved

As upon horizons
Initial insurgence
Our faith blows away
Counting our blessings with a broken abacus
Will not get us anywhere

So use your eyes
Boy it's no surprise
To see fires in the sky
Yes we guess it's for bring-abouts

And so we lost interest
This world is too complex on the way down
As upon horizons
Initial insurgence
Our faith blows away
Counting our blessings with a broken abacus
Will not get us anywhere

And upon horizons
Initial insurgence
Our faith blows away
Counting our blessings with a broken abacus
Will not get us anywhere

So use your eyes
Boy it's no surprise
To see plans of the sky
Lies where hearts can survive down here

    General Comment"we all blow smoke in the face of the truth. just like you say, 'i thought i was saved.'"

    i'm completely NOT religious at all, but this lyric caught my eye, as it reminds me of so many fucking people who act like they're all righteous and god-worshiping and obedient to their church--but then they go and do things that are hypocritical and against their own religion's rules. sounds like most of the US. ridiculous.
