And on that day they'll tell you
That life went on with no clue
The warning signs were all dismissed or shot down
So it goes

The kings all failed to tell us
The madmen failed to sell us
And what would then befall the only life we know?

Were they burning signal fires
To guide us to the fields?
Or building funeral pyres?
The outcome of a final appeal

The city lines are down
The kerosene's run out
The fracturing of all we relied upon
We she'd this unclean skin
And start to feel again
'Cause all the shoulders on which to cry are gone

The paranoia gripped us
The rain turned engines to rust
The panic set in like a cancer to our hearts
Spreading through

We bet on finite genius
Or prayed for Gods to save us
There was no antidote
Disease tore us apart

We left bodies in the fields
So numb that we forgot how to feel

The city lines are down
The kerosene's run out
The fracturing of all we relied upon
We she'd this unclean skin
And start to feel again
'Cause all the shoulders on which to cry are gone

He looked at the fields and then his hands
"All I need is what I have"
Then felt a tear of happiness

She watched the world crumble away
"Is this the end of yesterday?"
"Lord, I hope so" is all he said

All gone are the old gods
Gone are the cold, cold wars
Weightless we go forth
On wings of amnesty

All we relied on now

The city lines are down
The kerosene's run out
The fracturing of all we relied upon
We she'd this unclean skin
And start to feel again
With no more shoulders
Shoulders to cry on now

No more, no more (The weight that we once felt is gone)
No more, no more
No more, no more (The weight that we once felt is gone)
The weight that we once felt is gone
