Intro Oohs

It always seems to take me by surprise (ooh) the blank stare in their eyes
Sundays when they all kneel down and pray (ooh) Sleep their dreams away

(Maclaren, Wood)
Drinking till we fall, strong but feeling small, Fighting and dancing since we’ve crawled (killing since we’ve crawled)
Frightened so we lie, at war all the time, schooling and training in our prime (working till we die)

(Maclaren, Choir)
No one will ever come to our funeral
No one will ever come to our funeral

All the lucky ones have gone away, wish they would’ve stayed
Fucking our way to the end of days, hope it’s just a phase

(Maclaren, Wood)
(I’d like to) feel alive again, focus on the now
Keep some decent friends, I just don’t know how
Friends that never call, morals gone astray, (now we’re all) waiting at the mall, as we slip away (as we slip away)

(Maclaren, Wood)
We have ideas to go outside, but that would mean we have to try
It seems so hard to get ahead, so we say hey, let’s stay in bed
We all want friends to help rely, but we have networks by our side
They’re always trying hard to grow, but they’re so bad at saying no

(Maclaren, Choir)
No one will ever come to our funeral
No one will ever come to our funeral
