This Or The Apocalypse – Backlit lyrics

We're the scraps left behind in ground zero
From the blast that came to collect on it's debt
Blowing gale over the corpses
Over the hills that swallowed our footsteps

We kill the time as it was done to us
We point our hands in the shapes of guns and we time it

All washed out and fading in the foreground
The hammer draws back, go find your peace

We're... The great whale hooked and robbed of it's hide
As the jaybird watches yellow jackets close in
Gulf war, empty the beds of our fathers
Arms race, let fly the wolves in our hearts
Get up, get up, get up with 27 minutes left in '68 every day

Everything, nothing, me.
Everything, nothing, me.

We kill the time as it was done to us
We point our hands in the shapes of guns and we time it

All washed out and fading in the foreground
The hammer draws back, go find your peace [x2]

Nobody notices the cowards fall [x2]

Fall just like the brave [x2]

Nobody notices the cowards fall [x3]

Fall just like the brave

All washed out and fading in the foreground
The hammer draws back, go find your peace [x2]

Everything, nothing, me.
Everything, nothing, me.
