To The Vultures

This song is by Why Are We Building Such A Big Ship? and appears on the album Why Are We Building Such A Big Ship? (2007).

You ever walk into the middle of the road
With a string around your finger
To tell the headlights the truth
It must be told

The headlights must know

You're always muttering about the end of time itself
The sun will fall
And we will all be consumed
By the face of fear itself

Or is that someone else

You ever wait with candle's wax unto the bitter end
Darkness falls, the ghosts come out
You'll fight them, but
Oh, you'll never win

Is this the end
No, no

Well I waited at the river's edge
For a best to arise
With seven heads and ten horns
Well he said
He said

This the truth:

This could last forever
Forever to eternity
Heaven in their hands
Rags into feathers

Well this could last forever
Forever to eternity
Oh heaven in their hands
Oh, rags into feather

This could last forever
This could last forever

Or this could be over
So soon

This goes to the angels
Halos bend and sway
It's to the vultures
We found our way

This is to our tears
Not knowing why they spilt
It's to our wings
Not knowing why they wilt

This is to the angels
Halos bend and sway
It's to the vultures
Well, we found our way

This is to our tears
Not knowing why they spilt
It's to our wings
Not knowing why they wilt
