And on that day they'll tell you
That life hung on with no clue
The warning signs were all dismissed
Or shattered down, so it goes

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

When they're burning signal fires
To guide us to the fields
We're 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
I shed this unclean skin
And start to feel again
'Cause all the shoulders on which to cry are gone

The paranoia gripped us
Berate and then consume us
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 answer, though
Disease tore us apart

With the 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
I shed 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 fell a tear of happiness, oh, oh, oh, oh

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 guards
Got all the cold, cold wars
Weightless we go forth
On wings of amnesty

Oh, we relied on now

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

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