"Welcome to Your Wedding Day (Bombastic Version)" as written by and Mikel Jollett Noah Harmon....
Well it's another fine day of the nation building
Well let's have a parade
You can dance on the graves and the bones of the children
If you know what to say
And you know its begun from the beat of the drum
And the screams from the mouths of babes
And we pray as were watching the charade
Welcome to your wedding day

And it's a damn good day
For the heart and the mind
And the party is happening here
If you'll advert your gaze form the word on the sign
Let me wispier it in your ear
'Cause the sign says run
'Cause the sign says run
'Cause the sign says run
'Cause the sign says run
'Cause the sign says run

And you know its begun from the crack of the guns
And the screams from the mouths of babes
And we pray as we're watching the charade
Welcome to your wedding day
Welcome to your wedding

And we want peace
Yea we want peace
And we don't negotiate with terror

[Repeat x6]
We don't negotiate with terror

We only make or break
And we know its begun from the crack of the guns
And the screams form the mouths of babes
And we pray as we're watching the charade
Welcome to your wedding day
Welcome to your wedding

    Lyric CorrectionHe's saying "We don't negotiate with terror" as in "we don't negotiate with terrorists." I saw somewhere saying this song was originally called "flight of the predator drones" which makes sense with that line. I don't remember where but if I find it I'll post it. But he's definetly saying "terror."

    General CommentI'm wondering if this song doesn't have anything to do with the riots in Iran. The song 'Neda' is based on those protests, so I don't think it's too much of a stretch. It does seem a little out of place in the album.

    General CommentDeath encompasses much of The Airborne Toxic Event's second album All At Once and this is one of two songs on the set that discusses outside involvement in the Middle East. The lyrics of this track were inspired by a report that frontman Mikel Jollett came across of a bomb that went off during a wedding in Afghanistan, killing the bride and several others.
