We’re the scraps
left behind in ground zero
from the blast that came
to collect on its debt.
Blowing a gale over the corpses.
Over the hills that swallowed our footsteps.
We kill the time as it was done to us.
We point our hands in
the shapes of guns and we time it.

All washed out and fading in the foreground.
The hammer draws back,
go find your peace.

WE ARE
We’re the great whale
hooked and robbed of it’s hide
as the jaybird watches yellow jackets close in.
Gulf war
Empty the beds of our fathers.
Arms race
Let fly the wolves in our hearts.
GET UP GET UP
GET UP GET UP
with 27 minutes left
in 68
every day.
in 68
every day.

Everything. Nothing. ME...
Everything. Nothing. ME...

We kill the time
as it was done to us.
We point our hands in the shapes of guns and we time it.

All washed out and fading in the foreground.
The hammer draws back,
go find your peace.
All washed out and fading in the foreground.
The hammer draws back,
go find your peace.

Nobody notices the cowards fall.
Nobody notices the cowards fall
just like the brave.
just like the brave.

YEAH
Nobody notices the cowards fall.

Nobody notices the cowards FALL

Nobody notices the cowards FALL
just like the brave.

All washed out and fading in the foreground.
The hammer draws back,
go find your peace.
All washed out and fading in the foreground.
The hammer draws back,
go find your peace.

Everything. Nothing. ME
Everything. Nothing. ME...
