The Honor System – The Sound Of Sinking lyrics

1000 miles an hour 1000 miles an hour - down
An extra push
And pillars fell. Now we're huddled tight in holding cells
Alarms are on, pistols are drawn
Hunting shadows in the dark. It just takes one - push
One thousand miles an hour - down
Hero's hearts or hollow shells?
Are these shining seas or shallow ponds?
When the oil drips from the devil's lips
Black tooth smiles sing it all
Farewell maiden voyage
Romancing violence
Who's the captain of this sinking ship?
He's romancing violence
