The Great Die-Off

There's a fire on the borders and it's burning down the walls you built high

And there's a steady stream of anger and it's spilling from the coasts

A tidal wave

 

And the words say we reap what we sow

So where I bury you I'll build my home

In line to reclaim but we’re sick of the wait

 

We want it all and we want it now

Tonight I watched your fires burn out

The cold dead hands we pried these guns from are yours

We want it all and we want it now

A tide is coming to drown you out

We make ourselves at home while your body’s still warm

 

Tradition tethers us to rituals and

Are we all just clocks on wrong times?

And something triggers each and every time I hear you say

"God bless this place"

 

But your numbers are dwindling now

Though endangered we'll still hunt you down

With heads on a stake long may you reign

 

We want it all and we want it now

Tonight I watched your fires burn out

The cold dead hands we pried these guns from are yours

We want it all and we want it now

A tide is coming to drown you out

We make ourselves at home while your body’s still warm

 

And there's a fire on the borders and it's burning down the walls you built high

And there's a steady stream of anger and it's spilling from the coasts

A tidal wave

 

We want the motherfucking world and we want it now

Tonight I watched your fires burn out

The cold dead hands we pried these guns from are yours

 

No I don't want to wait

I know a better way

So step aside, come on or better yet just go away

Our chance has finally come

There might not be another one now

No we're not gonna wait

We want it now

Yeah we’re dousing the flames

We want it now
