One two three four!

Gonna make a record in the month of May
In the month of May in the month of May
Gonna make a record in the month of May
When the violent wind blows the wires away

Month of May it's a violent thing
In the city their hearts start to sing
Well some people singing sounds like screaming
Used to doubt it but now I believe it

Month of May everybody sing love
In the city watch it from above
And just when I knew what I wanted to say
The violent wind blew the wires away

(We were shocked in the suburbs)

Now the kids are all standing with their arms folded tight
The kids are all standing with their arms folded tight
Now some things are pure and some things are right
But the kids are still standing with their arms folded tight
I said some things are pure and some things are right
But the kids are still standing with their arms folded tight
So young so young
So much pain for someone so young well
I know it's heavy I know it ain't light
But how you gonna lift it with your arms folded tight?

First they built the road,
then they built the town,
that's why we're still driving around
and around and around and around
and around ......

2009, 2010 Wanna make a record how I felt then
When I stood outside in the month of May
And watched the violent wind blow the wires away

If I died in the month of May
Let the wind take my body away then
Wish I may I wish I might
Don't leave me down there with my arms folded tight

Start again in the month of May (x2)
Come on and blow the wires away (x2)
(repeat)
Wires away
