lyrics

Lyrics:

when we were children we were running over history
& all that stuck to our feet was dirt
we planted a seed and we thought it would grow
but they didn't tell us didn't want us to know
the power that was in our hands
the true story of the land

where the coyote used to howl
& where the snake once bit the sky
there is a city that won't surrender to night time
take all the stars from the sky
& create constellations with the street lights
there is a city that won't (will not) surrender to night time

it calls you from your bedroom
you always want more
bet bet bet some more
lets throw away everything we've worked for

they planted a seed and we watched it grow
shiny slot machines in rows
the kind that nobody has to nobody has to water
they grow bigger and stronger on the history of slaughter

the land so rightfully ours was someone else's before
but we gave them such a special place
take all the stars from the sky
& create constellations with the street lights
there is a city that won't WILL NOT surrender to night time

beep beep beep beep go the machines
you always think I'm being mean
beep beep beep beep go the machines

when we were children we were running over history
& all that stuck to my feet was dirt
all that stuck to my skin was a sunburn
