If this is the end,
then I'm going out in style.
Transmission sent,
I thank you, now give us a smile.

'Cause we're doing all we can
to just stick around a while
and rescue all our friends
from dying in the corporate fallout.

And I'd like to help you, baby;
you've been convicted as a traitor,
and years are passing by.
You'll be older and wiser and safer.
And they'll never find you here,
'cause your life's not expected 'til later.

The things that we've been
keeping together will
someday fall apart.
You might
have a smile now, but
you have no heart.

This is the summer we found
the map to the golden treasure.
You introduced me to
the senator, but I never met her.
And she told me the state of things
in middle America.

It gives me the
strangest feeling we are
all going down in flames.
It gives me the
strangest feeling we are
all going down in flames.

If this is not the case,
let us drink from the healing water
that extinguishes the lies
of our heroes and great-grandfathers
and opens wide the eyes
of our sons and great-granddaughters.

The things that we've been
keeping together will
someday fall apart.
You might
have a smile now, but
you have no heart.

And someday we'll sing the praise
of people who still remember
the time when we forgave
our enemies and our neighbors,
and mother Mary smiled
on a son who never disgraced her.

The things that we've been
keeping together will
someday fall apart.
You might
have a smile now, but
you have no heart.
