You are my army and I would command
"Attack the Holy Land"
And you are that interstate
That I would roll my tanks down

So color me stunned
And wake the children when done
And put the details in a jar
And bury them underwater

I went to see these battlegrounds
With battle sounds
And drove to the outskirts
With cars on blocks
And houses run down

So color me stunned
And wake the children when done
And put the details in a jar
And bury them underwater

We'll gather up the family and
Display our diseased organs
We'll call it pride
We'll celebrate tonight
Tax free and always underpriced

So color me stunned
And wake the children when done
And put the details in a jar
And bury them underwater

    General CommentOH MY GOD! No one's commented on this!? Sweet lord...

    This has gotta be one of the best songs I've heard by DCFC and one of the best songs period, it's got a great groove to it. I don't know what the song's about yet, but it's definitely one of those songs that you don't really care what it's about cuz it's such a good song.

    General Commentnope, it is simple sung by ben gibbard with his guitar, but it might be on an all-time quarterback album, not sure though.

    General CommentIt's too bad All Time Quarterback IS Ben Gibbard. Tis Ben's side project it is.... and it is an ATQ song... which was later re-recorded for Death Cab.
    I'm glad I know so much more than everyone else... kinda like the monolith.... You're the apes... I give you the brains. See how it works?
