The Fall of Rome

Smoke it if you got some
Get in while the getting is good
Show your claws, you need ‘em ‘cause
You feel misunderstood
So your heart is beating, it’s bleeding that’s good
No one cares, why should they
You don’t for theirs

Upset with the outcome
Nothing works whatever you give
Show them wrong, keep holding on,
And scream into the wind
It’s only your defeat that you meet in the end
No one cares, no one cares

Every song I’ve learned to sing’s already old
Time turned all the reasons into dust

What’s forever in the morning is
Not together in the gloam
Tell me I’m not living in the fall of Rome

Shake it while you got one
Use it ‘cause you’re losing it fast
On and on it’s going, gone,
And fades into the past
No one knows your history, your meaningless lasts
No one cares, no one cares

Every song I’ve learned to sing’s already old
Time turned all the reasons into dust

What’s forever in the morning is
Not together in the gloam
Tell me I’m not living in the fall of Rome

Did I fall asleep?
How’d the days and the weeks slip away?
So the cowards won
They’ll ask in the flood
Oh, won’t you please come pinch me awake!

Tell me I’m not living in
Tell me I’m not living in
Tell me I’m not living in

What's forever in the morning's not together when you want
Tell me I’m not living in the what

Tell me I’m not living in the fall of Rome
