Paris In Flames

This song is by Thursday and appears…

as a demo

Watch video at YouTube
Now it's time

To wrap our fears in the night

And on the first day
I'll dress this city in flames

After the things you say
You hate me for being this way (Way)

Still you won't let go
Of old ideals
There is no headline (There is no headline)
To read at night
When the record skips
And you're not
(Holding the needle)

We all sing the songs of separation
And we watch our lives
Bleed out through
Our hands
That's how it was on the first day
When we saw Paris in flames

Rain, rain down
Think it's gonna rain, rain down
Think it's gonna rain, rain down
Think it's gonna rain
Think it's gonna rain, rain down
Think it's gonna rain, rain down
Think it's gonna rain, rain down
Think it's gonna rain

(Here in this collapsed lung of a borough)
(There is no sunlight)
(The sunlight is manufactured in a windowless room)
(Distant and incoherent)
(Businessmen hang themselves)

We all sing the songs of separation
And we watch our lives
Bleed out through
Our hands
That's how it was on the first day
When we saw Paris in flames

(The lower east side is a jukebox)
(Playing the dead man's crescendo)
(The needle is a vector)
(An intersection that we all must cross)
(A dimly lit hallway where shadows of moths)
(Decorate the walls)

(Discard this message)
(Discard this message)
(Discard this message) Burn your city down
Down
Burn your heart
Now burn it with this song
You were on the first day

Discard this message
Throw this bottle back into the ocean
Rip this page from the history book
Smash all the street signs
Erase all the maps
Forget my name
Forget my face
Forget my name
Because it's gonna rain
It's gonna rain
And it never ends

Rain, rain down (We all sing songs)
Think it's gonna rain, rain down (Of separation)
Think it's gonna rain, rain down (And watch our lives)
Think it's gonna rain (Bleed through)
Think it's gonna rain, rain down (Our hands)
Think it's gonna rain, rain down (That's how it was)
Think it's gonna rain, rain down (On the first day)
Think it's gonna rain
(We saw Paris in flames)
