lyrics

No more
No more superstition
No more delusions this won't affect us all
And as every headline lives and breathes division
We're burning our bridges and putting up more walls

We're taking and taking 'til there's nothing left
Everyone's gasping for air
Try to deny it, your story's all wet
When there's nowhere to live
Let's see you care

Look at all the melting ice
To ignore it, I couldn't figure
Where do you think we'll go when it comes down?
The land that I love - well, you'd better take a picture
Color your maps for the disappearing ground

If we don't blow ourselves up, we will certainly drown
Put on your suit and deny it
Unqualified leaders don't cease to astound
You know, we're better off without you

How do you justify closing our borders
When people all over the world are left to rot?
Policy is always decided by money hoarders
Well, maybe some good could be done with all you've got

You're taking and taking 'til there's nothing left
Leaving us gasping for air
With your hands around our necks,
Well, we can't catch a breath
We're all just trying to live and you don't care

How can you say, "All lives matter,"
And then call for more death?
I don't think it's much that we ask for
When the bank is underwater
They won't cash your check
They all will float away without you
