He said, boys let's paint the sky.
It's do or die
in black tonight
we shoot them down
beneath this high horse that we ride
soft skin boys lead the way
on this dirt path that you play
it's to the fair for this family
to stay

they'll stay, stay, stay
and breakaway

and as all the churches fall
so does the ferris wheel
oh, what a great tornado
all the rides and penny fights
turn to nothing with the night
except the wind
it gathers quickly up
the light

little girls wait in line
for their maypoles that they tie
shouting out as they swiftly spin around
they spin around, around, around
til they fall down

and as all the churches fall
so does the ferris wheel
oh what a great tornado

cowboys they pull out their guns
and all the children run

and as all the churches fall, fall, down
so does the Ferris Wheel
oh what a great tornado

    My OpinionTo Jaex, I think its "lead the way" as well.

    This song really stands out to me. I have not yet bought the album yet but it is definitely on the "when I get money" list. The band surprised me when I happened to stumble upon them on youtube.
