Everyone's dressed in the scenery.
I can't stop looking. We blend in.
Everyone's right where they've got to be.
Under the bright lights, I want you.

Oh, don't you mind the war tonight.
We'll watch the sky exploding high.

Questions are shot to the heart of hell.
Elephants falling and burning.
Hold me and watch the apocalypse.
Baby, we did this... don't miss it.

Where have you been?

    General Commentsuch an awesome song. im not too sure what it means, but i think its about being with someone who takes all your worries away, and you could just not worry about the world when you're with them. but then again, im probably wrong, hahaha.

    General CommentAmazing song. It's one of those songs when all you haveto do is read the lyrics and you're blown away. Really beautiful.

    I'll have a shot at the meaning: I think it's about being with someone who makes you forget about all the horrid things happing around the world like wars, fighting and riots.
    "Oh, don't you mind the war tonight.
    We'll watch the sky exploding high."
    When you're with that person, nothing really matters.
