lyrics

You set yourself up for disappointment
Slowed them down, but they get back up
The living dead of the working class
dust themselves off & go back to work
Married to their unpaid debt & rising costs
They just keep on charging
They just keep on charging

Illusion of time pulls you along
Plant memories, forgotten songs
& battle cries; the written word has died
It's been replaced by bright neon signs
The well's gone dry, the pain can't subside
They want to medicate you
They want to medicate you

She was right about the wait
You watched this town die & you were saved
by the trees that spoke for her
They all wore her face
Told you, "you have to go before it's too late"
"Don't ever settle down here"
"Don't ever settle down here"

Her branches carry you out
Follow dead stars to where she'll be
in the black burnt earth
beyond the sea
They all wore her face
Told you, "you have to go before it's too late"
"Don't ever settle down here"
"Don't ever settle down"
