Everything is going great
now we hurry up and wait
the whole world shudders everytime we sneeze
and faith
led us here then it led us away
we lie everyday
I've never seen an ocean

don't forget your bills in April
to pay for the wars and the tragedies
and all the pretty new things

Lord, please give me a sign

while everyone is on the take
oh, the money sealed our fate
a nation built on blood and bribery and hate
everyone left in the wake
these are the monsters we create
then we drown them in the ocean

Don't forget to live this summer
cuz hollywood is buzzing about it's pretty new things

Lord, please give me a sign

I awoke to the death of my generation
we are bleeding through and through
we are bleeding through and through

Don't forget the love He gave us
cuz we could change this world
into a pretty new thing

Lord, please give me a sign
