Track Name: Calling All Cars
Between the lines and the lies of America
Cracks are starting to show
Everybody everywhere is getting so hysterical
but nobody seems to know
Staring down a loaded gun
We are not the fortunate ones

Frantically we're panicking for anything but typical
before the walls close in
Like rats in a cage, stuck spinning our wheels
making deals with secret sin
And as we wander in the dark
The door is closing on the ark.

The whole world's falling apart
The wolves are no longer at bay
The radio is calling all cars
And the saints are falling away
But I'm just trying to feel
Even if the feeling is wrong
It's what keeps me hanging on
When the whole world is falling apart.

Counterfeit encounters with desires are increasing
while the hours are wasting away
With all of the commotion it's so easy to lose focus
in the Machiavellian haze
Staring down a loaded gun
We're past the point of what went wrong.


I can't see, but I know where this is going
Round and round, up and down, pockets overflowing
Hoist me up and set my feet back on the ground
The sky is raining ashes, and we are falling down.
