lyrics

"The Gangs Returned to Class and Became Honor Students"

Let's throw these words down for kindling,
because this hell is freezing
Stab all these eardrums, I'm not interested in hearing
the familiar echo of footsteps leaving

Cover this chest with bandage
for the cuts I don't wish to brandish
instead of wearing them like a metal of valor
I didn't deserve. Cause I'm still a coward.

Hold on to that fucking thought
Wish I could hold onto that thought
Hold on, hold on

The sirens are loud,
but I can't make them out.
Just distractions from feeling
the ship run aground.
You saw the danger,
but I didn't listen.
I was too concerned
with what I thought I was missing

If I look for comfort in tragedies
then I'll build them up into majesties

But Kings and Queens are just figureheads
and my Parliament's royally shitting it's bed.

Moonraker is a punk band from southern California ... more
