"Flesh and Bones" as written by Brandon Flowers, Dave Brent Keuning, Mark August Stoermer and Ronnie Jr. Vannucci....
it's the first day of spring
with clean air in the wind
and everything is just like it should be
the roads are jammed up with lorries and cars
and i'm standing in the street with my hand upon my heart
this is the place that i used to know
but its been wiped away and put up for show
i'm all alone in the middle of a crowd
i open my mouth and scream a silent shout


i jumped out of bed had my first cigarette
it made my body feel sick but helped my mind relax
the cranes are moving on the skyline
and the water is dripping from the kitchen tap
these times they are a changing,
but i'm beeing left behind
everybody's running, trying to catch up their lives


the hypocrites on the television screens,
are trying to disguise what they really mean
they say things are getting' better
when we know they gettin' worse
while they're buying bigger guns
from a shrinking purse,
the stink and sweat and the flesh and bones
have been replaced and are being sold
not for melting down for pills and soap
but as draught stoppers to keep out the cold


i jumped out of bed had my first cigarette
it made my body feel sick but helped my mind relax
the cranes are moving in the twilight
and the water is dripping from the kitchen tap
these times they are a changing,
but i'm beeing left behind
everybody's running, trying to catch up their lives
