Let’s get drunk again, again
Call it love again, again
The world don’t change
But life sure does
Let’s go back, go back, go back
Find a movie on VHS
Kiss that girl again, again
Oblivious to mediocrity
I made the world my sanctuary
But when the bombs dropped and children died
It knocked me off my feet, took me by surprise
My mother drank
My father cried
My brother sank
Rewind the tape
Defuse the bomb
Watch your life deflate
Sing while your family mourns
The night won’t end but our time will
Sing a song
Sing at the dark and sing at dawn
You will find a home again
And until then sing to the sound of the raging lightning storm
