about

A doomsday lullaby for the hopeless romantic -

lyrics

Blue drifter, bet your last dollar
I’ll be here when you get back to the bar
Sole trader, aren’t you over playing nice?
Well I’m old enough and I’m bold enough to give you advice

Lean in closer, have a shot
In the days that you’ve got

And show a little loving when you can
Take her by the heart, take him by the hand
Don’t believe the government
We’re starting the rebellion
Well the truth is that the world is dying
It just matters that you’re trying

Lonely lady, we’re down at the Shady
Drinking Pina-coladas like nothing could bother us, come join the party
There’s smoke in the air, the floor is on fire
Give up your chairs to the ones who’ve been dancing
We own tonight. Are you feeling alright?

So show a little loving when you can
Take them by the heart, take her by the hand
Don’t believe the government
We’re starting the rebellion
Well the truth is that the world is dying
It just matters that you’re trying

Spin us stories like it’s Hollywood
Take our money, tell us we’re no good
Ain’t we all artists of our own design
Help me pay the rent on time

And show a little loving when you can
Take him by the heart, take them by the hand
Don’t believe the government
We’re starting the rebellion
Well the truth is that the world is dying
The truth is that the world is dying
Well the truth is that the world is dying
It just matters that you’re trying
