Sometimes the city moves too fast,
but only ghosts live in the past,
and all the evidence you saved
is quickly filed away.
You're just as lost as yesterday.

A public hanging in the fog.
Hey man, I'm just doing my job.
Come on, cheer up, little girl!
It's the beginning of the world;
Come see the pretty flags unfurl.

but it's a long wait after knowing.
It's a long wait after knowing
the coast is clear.

Caught some sunshine in the hole.
Reveal just how much you got old.
Someone's responsible, you say.
Does that make it okay?
We're still skipping to our graves.

but it's a long wait after knowing.
It's a long wait after knowing
the coast is clear.

Can't scream loud enough x10

Sometimes the city moves too fast,
but only ghosts live in the past.
Come on, cheer up, little girl!
It's the beginning of the world;
Come see the pretty flags unfurl.

Can't scream loud enough x4
