I was born but I forgot it
We left our marks in drying cement
Hey mister don't you doubt it
I was born but I've seemed to forgot it

I was raised inside a bible
I was living off life support
Unilateralist!
Single mattress!
Guilty Friday nights remind me that

Sometimes I feel like I should have said no

I met your savior over an alter
I'm at your funeral I'm at the slaughter

Trigger fingers catch your breath
Lay `em down slow
Oh my god it's been far too long
Send my thoughts to the firing squad

    General CommentThe two albums that The Menzingers have released up to this point will be remembered for a long time.

    My OpinionMay be wrong but this song kind of reminds me of Slaughterhouse 5:
    'I'm at your funeral, I'm at the slaughter' (funeral before the slaughter) and 'send my thoughts to the firing squad.' (Dresden)
    It wouldn't be too surprising to say they released So It Goes. I don't know. Just a thought.
