lyrics

Calm Before the Bomb

I paid my ransom

I hit the floor

my shoes were shining like a devil at your door

I gave you forty

you wanted more

we drop the killers by the dozens and you change how we keep the score


soldier, did you misplace your place?

did you leave it back at home on your mama’s door?

you're just muscle and bone now

air in the brain

pain is just something that you used to know


the calm before the bomb

as life goes on mundane and slow

you feel your in control

in the calm before the bomb



you didn’t see it

you step in line

you didn't hear you it

you step in time on the dotted line

didn’t feel it

you step in line

you won’t even care to notice when the medicine bathes your spine


leaders, your bleeding empty seed

with your hand upon the shoulders of our faceless, wasted youth

truth, one of your golden words

you polish golden turds

you see the plane from your throne, but you know they can’t be heard


I got my sharp

I got my kit

I got a pocket full of foggy for the fun of it

I got some quiet

I got some peace

I got nothing but air hanging beneath my knees

i got my right hand

it’s working well

I got a big slice of heaven to forget this hell

I know that one day

but not today

I’m gonna have a little party and just fade it away

the calm before the bomb

as life goes on mundane and slow

you feel your in control

in the calm before the bomb

as life goes on

mundane and slow
