I awoke to sirens, but all you heard was apologies.
was it too loud or not loud enough
to move the moutains we built
to the trenches we dug?
repeating ourselves,
biting our own hands- counting how many fingers fit?
how many fingers?

sit and wait.

you make this look good,
you make it look so good,
dressed up in riot gear for a prat fall good for profit.
we claimed the product in the name of tragedy,
were so dramatic.
now im after pyramids,
what would you rig that with plastic explosives and trip wire?
and if we lost our arms,
and lost our voice
could we trick ourselves-
that we killed ourselves.
here come the sirens, were over and done for.

i can never stay awake long enough to see the ending.

    General CommentIs it true that one of on the might of princes' band members fucked one of tbs' and since then tbs has stole some of their lyrics? For example....tbs' most recent cd is called where you want to be as one of on the might of princes' cds is called where you are and where you want to be, i have also heard similar lyrics on both albums.

    General Commentthe lyrics are not similar at all, tbs and otmop have completely polar sounds and lyrics heh.

    but i believe the name of the tbs albm was basically a 'fuck you' to otmop, or something like that.

    this song has nothing to do with that though.
