We didn't mean to start the fire Then it just kept climbing higher It burned all night and by the dawn Half the city was gone The flames and smoke engulfed the sky Surrounding towns could not survive The ferocious hunger of the blaze Oh will we be saved I always knew this day would come we've so much practice on the run finding warmth in each others arms protected, free and safe from harm and if the sun should forget to shine you know i think that we'd be just fine living on the edge of the night forever chasing rays of light and if we never see another day we won't descend into a hopeless haze because we've made ourselves a little home gazing out into the unknown Even if the sun drowns I'll never let you down if all you see are black clouds I'll turn your faith around even if the rays die we'll make our own sunlight through the love we've made we'll see another day the spotlights came and we fled and though for now we've spread far across state lines our love still brightly shines And if the sun should forget to shine you know i think that we'd be just fine living on the edge of the night forever chasing rays of light and if we never see another day we won't descend into a hopeless haze because we've made ourselves a little home gazing out into the unknown the little voice inside of my head that thinks were all just better off dead is fatalistic and flawed at best so I have put all of these thoughts to rest Turn your self around we won't make a sound just give me your hand soon we'll understand all the selfish ways we've wasted our days to give ourselves away or so we'd like to say Even if the sun drowns I'll never let you down if all you see are black clouds I'll turn your faith around even if it takes all year i want you to have no fear or any trace of doubt that we will see this out even if the rays die we'll make our own sunlight through the love we've made we'll see another day

give us your bones give us your bones tonight give up your home give up without a fight off with his head go join the dead tonight sleep soft in bed safe and sound without a fright /dig deep below deep down below the soil we'll see it grow til it begins to spoil I'll be alone I'll be alone tonight in the unknown no one's quite sure what is right/ check for a pulse see if he's still alive cowards and ghosts those who are left to die heavenly host heaven is closed tonight head for the coast fires burning out of sight give up your bones give up your bones tonight give up your home give up without a fight bring out your dead tears will be shed tonight sing fear and dread see if he's still alive flowers and toasts heres to the morning light cowards and ghosts heaven is closed tonight
