Relient K – Down In Flames lyrics

[Verse 1]
Christians -- we're all afraid of fire
We prefer to suck on pacifiers
Baby pacifists, we're throwing fits
We don't shake hands, we shake our fists

[Pre-Chorus]
We're cannibals, we watch our brothers fall
We eat our own, the bones and all
Finally fell asleep on the plane
To wake to see we're going down in flames
Down in flames

[Chorus]
We're going down, down, down in flames
(We're going down in flames)
We're gonna drown, drown, drown insane
(We're gonna drown insane)
We see the problem and the risk
But nothing's solved
We just say "Tisk, tisk, tisk"
And "Shame, shame, shame"
Finally fell asleep on the plane
To wake to see we're going down in flames
Down in flames

Let's go!

[Verse 2]
Christians -- we mourn, the thorn is stuck
In the side of the body watch it self-destruct
The enemy is much ignored
When we fight this Christian civil war

[Pre-Chorus]
We're cannibals, we watch our brothers fall
We eat our own, the bones and all
Finally fell asleep on the plane
To wake to see we're going down in flames
Down in flames

[Chorus]
We're going down, down, down in flames
(We're going down in flames)
We're gonna drown, drown, drown insane
(We're gonna drown insane)
We see the problem and the risk
But nothing's solved
We just say "Tisk, tisk, tisk"
And "Shame, shame, shame"
Finally fell asleep on the plane
To wake to see we're going down in flames
Down in flames

[Hook]
Na na na na, na na na na
Na na na na, na na na na
Na na na na, na na na na
Na na na na, na na na na
Na na na na, na na na na
Na na na na, na na na na
Na na na na, na na na na
Bana na na na, na na na

[Outro]
Let me pause to clarify
'Cause I'm sure you're asking why
I stand before you and proudly claim
To belong to what this song complains
I'm part of the problem, I confess
But I gotta get this off my chest
Let's extinguish the anguish for which we're to blame
And save the world from going down in flames
[2x]
