lyrics

Not a word naysayer. can afford not a prayer.
If genealogy still means anything, we could forge our own way through.
If genealogy still means anything, I could spend my life with you.
Understate my reflection, always fake your rejection.
If genealogy still means anything, we could forge our own way through.
If genealogy still means anything, I could spend my life with you.
Make it up yourself. Make it up as you go along.
Make it up day to day. Make it up as you go along.
Nothing like a morning in dog food city
that'll keep my spirits cold while I continue growing old,
and it strained my eyes to see the sun beneath a veil of grey.
Nothing like a morning in dog food city
that'll keep my spirits cold while I continue growing old,
and it strained my eyes to see the sun beneath a veil of grey.
We built a home around our hopes but couldn't stand to stay indoors,
and though we tried, we couldn't sleep, so stored our dreams beneath the floors,
and when the sky obscured the light with smoke and fog each winter morn,
likewise our thoughts became too clouded, and doubt did whisper in my ear,
"This life is over, there is no future, there is no hope of mending fences,"
so after much deliberation, I smiled and said "I'll take my chances,"
and for so long, we held on strong, our grip held fast to our foundations.
Perhaps it fear, we failed to see that it was flawed in its foundation,
but still our eyes unsatisfied, they yearned to find an answer still
that could explain in simple terms how could this agony be real.
And so, the ground opened its mouth and swallowed all that we created.
I turned to you and softly spoke, "If there's still hope, then it is faded."
Despite the years, it disappeared, it can't be what it used to be,
so let our fears consume us dear, and raise our flags in our defeat.
We burned the home we built and watched as the roof crashed down on our faces,
and breathed in the ash and crawled through the wreckage,
and saw the sun for what felt like the first time in years.
