Arlandria (America)

Ain't that the way it always starts.
A simple round of conversation.
Became a shameful equation.
I flipped you station to station.

Hey. Don't go and turn the other way.
Don't say there's nothin more to... say.
Com'on here me out.
Hush, hush, settle down.
Button up, don't make a sound.
Shame, shame, go away.
Come again some other day.

You used to say I couldn't save you enough,
So I've been savin it up, I started savin it up.
And when you said I couldn't give you enough,
I started given you up, I started given you up.

You are not me, Arlandria, Arlandria.
You and what army, Arlandria, Arlandria?
Oh, God you gotta make it stop

Chase.. all of those memories away,
Save them all for another day.
Don't you remember it was rain that drowned you.

Wait! I wanna see if you can shake.
I wanna keep all i can take.
I feel much better now.
Use me up, spit me out,
Let me be your hand-me-down.
Fame, fame, go away, come again some other day.

You used to say I couldn't save you enough,
so I've been savin it up, I started savin it up.
And when you said I couldn't give you enough,
I started given you up, I started given you up.

You are not me, Arlandria, Arlandria.
You and what army, Arlandria, Arlandria?
Oh, God you gotta make stop!

My sweet Virginia, I'm the same as I was in your arms.
My sweet Virginia, I'm the same as I was in your arms.

Shame, shame go away,
come again some other day.
Memories keep haunting me,
help me chase them all away.
Hush, now settle down,
button up, don't make a sound.
Close your eyes, turn around,
help me burn this to the ground...
Come now, take the blame, that's okay, I'll play the game.
I don't care it's all the same,
watch you all go up in flames.
Use me up, spit me out,
let me be your hand-me-down.
Fame, fame, go away, come again some other day!

You used to say I couldn't save you enough,
So I've been savin it up, I started savin it up.
And when you said I couldn't give you enough,
I started given you up, I started given you up.

You are not me, Arlandria, Arlandria.
You and what army, Arlandria, Arlandria?
Oh, God you gotta make it stop.

My sweet Virginia, oh, God you gotta make it,
My sweet Virginia, oh, God you gotta make it stop.
