lyrics

Recruit by the nights, shoot out these brights
Boys crept in one step, we leapt toward the lights
We ran hard as nails, don’t drift in that mist
Take this game off the rails, they shot but they missed
We can charge down these trails, an ice cold endeavour
New leads to sow seeds, I’m full speed as ever
Press down on that lever, reveal the whole jawn
Waking up to get moving, off another cold dawn
Hold on, through the static, camped in the attic
My mind is a midnight train headed to Braddock
I’m westbound by route, came back here to shout
Saw the crescent moon glowing, now I’m going all out

We don’t move like a heart drained bloodless
We don’t talk like a drained out lake
Hardest times never broke us open
Hardest days make the stone walls shake
We live now through the lightless chapters
We don’t yearn for the world that was
You can’t plant your flag in our memory
We gotta scream through the constant buzz

Got the old time record player hooked, I stop and looked
Let the 45 play while the pasta cooked
Heard the sounds coming out of the past
About a nonstop summer that’s forever to last
But it ain’t a blue beach, where the unit belongs
Cause nowadays it’s a war, when you want to do songs
We know you can’t bend the spoon, with your force of your brain
We dive in and and kept treading through an ocean of pain
On a chase of all chases, gone for the gold
Racing off to places till we’re haggard and old
In Indio going in, throwing needles to grooves
Where wild starlight’s popping and the mystery moves

We don’t move like a heart drained bloodless
We don’t talk like a drained out lake
Hardest times never broke us open
Hardest days make the stone walls shake
We live now through the lightless chapters
We don’t yearn for the world that was
You can’t plant your flag in our memory
We gotta scream through the constant buzz
