Oo, I want to sing one for all the dreamers
Oo, I'm singing this one for the sparks
Oo, here's one for the friction makers
Oo, we are the bleeding hearts
Don't care whoever you are

We rise and fall together
Our hearts still beat below
Oh, you can't stand by forever
You're a kid with a bullet soul
Are you ready to go?
Are you ready to go?

Oo, I want to turn up the radiation
Oo, I want to glow in the dark
Oo, love is the one true innovation
Oo, love is the only art
Don't let 'em blow it apart

We rise and fall together
Our hearts still beat below
You can't stand by forever
You're a kid with a bullet soul
Are you ready to go?
Are you ready to go?
Oh, yeah, are you ready to go?
Are you ready to go?

Oo, we are the children of the scar
Oo, I wanna start from the start
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

We rise and fall together
Our hearts still beat below
Oh, you can't stand by forever
You're a kid with a bullet soul
Are you ready to go?
Are you ready to go?
Oh, yeah, are you ready to go?
Are you ready to go?

    General CommentJon Foreman- "Here's the second song that I worked on with Mike. We tracked a lot of it the day after we wrote "Your Love is a Song." I wanted to see what it would be like to work on a rock tune with him because I hadn't heard much of his work in that area. His passion and knowledge about fuzz tones were an incredible surprise to me. He brought out a song called “Bugman” as a reference (a blur song off of 13, a more obscure blur record that had some messier pinkerton overtones) and I knew we were on the right track. The demo I had done was much more subdued and with eclectic instrumentation (more of a cheap dust brothers concept). But he brought out a few Deviever guitar pedals and the song took turn towards the rock side of things.

    We are the children of the scar. Our lives flash so quickly before us... This song was loosely based on a poem that I wrote a few years back. You only get one shot with your bullet soul, I want to make all that I can out of my one shot. Life is not perfect or ideal. Life is full of messy, bleeding dreamers. That's where things begin- Broken hearts making a broken record. But that's not the end of the story..."
