Out in the everglades
Sleeping in with the poor is a fortune for the brave
I can easily say that we will never change
But be implacable and never lose your flames
Wouldn't you say that the world has spit on you enough
Unanswered prayers, sleeping under streetlights
And I don't understand the danger of talking them up
Every night, you salvage every skyline
Only enough so that you might have the chance to feel fine
Swear to God, I believe we've had enough trying to save the world
Did you hear me, we have had enough

This is how we close the show, so sit back and listen, 'cause it's not over yet
You think you know us, well you don't know shit

    General CommentThis song is a great closure to the album. So the whole album basically sums to the idea that you shouldn't be dragged down by your family/your home/the things you're given in youth. I imagine it as a more broad idea than the lyrics in the album explicitly say. The album uses a theme of a kid splitting off from his father. Basically his father makes him feel like a monster inside. So he leaves, It's a challenge but he does it.

    So this song is an afterward situation. He's finally free. "Sleeping in with the poor is a fortune for the brave" is just saying the protagonist has a hole in his life where his father/family was, but he's doing it to pursue his dreams and eventually live a better life. In a more broad context, you've got to make sacrifices to get to your end goal.

    "Every night, Salvage every skyline, only enough so that you might have the chance to feel fine" adds to this. Every day, you have to acknowledge this fight is for a greater cause.
