Wait 'til you’re announced
We’ve not yet lost all our graces
The hounds will stay in chains
Look upon your greatness
That you’ll send the call out
(Send the call out [x15])

Call all the ladies out
They’re in their finery
A hundred jewels on throats
A hundred jewels between teeth
Now bring my boys in
Their skin in craters like the moon
The moon we love like a brother, while he glows through the room

Dancin' around the lies we tell
Dancin' around big eyes as well
Even the comatose they don’t dance and tell

[Chorus:]
We live in cities you'll never see on
screen
Not very pretty, but we sure know how to run
things
Living in ruins of the palace within my
dreams
And you know, we're on each other's
team

I'm kind of over getting told to throw my hands up in the air, so
there
So all the cups got broke shards beneath our feet but it wasn’t my
fault
And everyone’s competing for a love they won't
receive
'Cause what this palace wants is
release

[Chorus:]
We live in cities you'll never see
on screen
Not very pretty, but we sure know how to
run things
Living in ruins of the palace within my dreams
And you know, we're on each other's
team

I’m kind of over getting told to throw my hands up in the air
So there
I’m kinda older than I was when I revelled without a care

So there

[Chorus:]
We live in cities you'll never
see on screen
Not very pretty, but we sure know how to run things
Living in ruins of the palace within my dreams
And you know, we're on each other's team
We're on each other's team
And you know, we're on each other's team
We're on each other's team
And you know, and you know, and you know
