(lyrics by: Brian Paone & Nick Panneton) 

Envelope calculations break down, those calculations break down
Everyone feels so snug in their beds, so many people snug in their beds
Malfunctions eat the skyline, there’s a fire that eats the skyline

Grab the kids, grab the keys, grab the food, grab the gun, grab the dog, grab the booze, and hide from the blast
Try to run, try to hide, try to flinch, try to fall, try to fight, try to live, and hide from the blast
Shield their eyes, shield their face, shield their ears, shield their mouths, shield their skin, shield their clothes, and hide from the blast
Hide your fear, hide your pain, hide your cries, hide your tears, hide your hate, hide your death, from the kids

Freaks and the geeks and the punks and the bores and the losers and the drunks and the bottom feeding whores
They wanted to see and they wanted to fry and they wanted to die and they wanted it today
Freaks and the geeks and the punks and the bores and the losers and the drunks and the bottom feeding whores
In the brightest light is the darkest shadow, covered eyes but the hands are hollow
Freaks and the geeks and the punks and the bores and the losers and the drunks and the bottom feeding whores
You know hope is a terrible thing, it holds you, and crushes you, and keeps you down
Freaks and the geeks and the punks and the bores and the losers and the drunks and those motherfucking whores

Hanging on a thread of what they wanted (asked for)

Hanging on a thread of what they wanted (asked for)
It’ll take more than a wing and a prayer (to get us back)
Hanging on a thread of what they wanted (asked for)
It’ll take more than a wing and a prayer (to get us back)
Hanging on a thread of what they wanted (asked for)
It’ll take more than a wing and a prayer (to get us back)
Hanging on a thread of what they wanted (asked for)
It’ll take more than a wing and a prayer (to get us back)
Hanging on a thread of what they…

Envelope calculations break down, those calculations break down
Everyone feels so snug in their beds, so many people snug in their beds
Malfunctions eat the skyline, there’s a fire that eats the skylin
