lyrics

Rudely awakened with a samurai sword
It’s sunk in my sails
Her pigtails soaked in entrails
Soaked in wine from the night before
And she shoots me my own Goddamn smile right back at me and I feel like laughing
This new family of a stranger
She’s Herod in my manger
My widowed bride
My murderous savior

So the world is over
Well it had a good run
In between explosions
Let’s have us some fun
‘Cause we’ll fight to the death
We’ll fight for a breath
Long after breathing’s in effect ‘cause
Lungs ain’t broken
Just drowning in blood

Her momma said I'm a flash in the pan
But here I am and I'm burning so bright like a kite
On its maiden flight
Fried when it flied with the stormy night
And I said I don't want all of this shit on my shoes
Used and abused
Run through the ringer and soaked in the blues
Psychosis infused insomnia
Oh you're my muse

So the world is over
Well it had a good run
In between explosions
Let’s have us some fun
‘Cause we’ll fight to the death
We’ll fight for a breath
Long after breathing’s in effect ‘cause
Lungs ain’t broken
Just drowning in blood

Miss Slipavich, you've got a baby ailing in your youth
You feed her pills you feed her herbs and bathe her in vermouth
Yeah she's a real martyr
Like a truck without a starter
Sitting in a compactor trying to reason with steel
Saying, “Hey, look at my exhaust,”
As it grows
White like a ghost
Saying that counts as a healthy breath
So angels above absolve me of death

Detroit
Is the place
Where all our dreams come true –
And we feel like we're lovely
Traipsing the streets
Nude in our cleats
Until it's a wet night in the city
And the skyscrapers sink in the muck
And I'm falling and crawling and dying away
And my jaw’s on the floor but I'm trying to say
That I feel like we're at our most handsome
Today
Today
In Detroit

Detroit
Is the place
Where all our dreams come true
