The promise of gravity feels a threat
And I’m lying in my grave at the age of sixteen
Thinking of all the things that I’ve not had the time to do yet
And you’re lying in your bed at three hundred and four
Got a fever you’re burning up a hundred and three
You must be thankful for all the things you will not have to see

It’s just interpretation
You merchants of intimidation
Such a pretty sight to see
On fire the world can be
The grand finale you have waited for 

It’s been a little bit touch and go
At the first you refused to know
Coming up on a little too late

Well it’s a Friday night and where are you?
Clutching ice in your hand, jumping off of the world
Keeping company with mars because the end’s not nigh for you
And we’re picking our way through the undergrowth 
Trying not to get caught in your undertow
Keep our heads above water don’t ya know oh you don’t know

It’s just interpretation
You merchants of intimidation 
Such a pretty sight to see
On fire the world can be
The grand finale you have waited for

It’s been a little bit touch and go
At the first you refused to know
Coming up on a little too late

And I’ll wipe out my family tree 
I won’t suffer them to see
This downward spiral ends with me
The world that would will never be
And I’m feeling tricked myself
Ya I’ve been in better health
The inheritance that on us fell
Casts a bitter spell

The promise of ease becomes a trap
Not easily escaped and that
I know we’ve all fallen into, into which the end’s been shaped
But she’ll keep turning anyway
Long after we have had our day
When we’re all dead and gone I dream that green will right itself from gray

What’s this interpretation
I see no room for negotiation 
Such a pitiful sight to see
Water up to your knees
Wade through mud and tears and salt and sea
These merchants of intimidation
Marching to the death, to the whole damn nation
Such a pretty sight to see
On the fire the world can be
The grand finale nobody asked for 

It’s been a little bit touch and go
At the first you refused to know
Coming up on a little too late
