World War

from The Greylings by Brightly



I swear you were spitting venom
I guess I was pretty drunk
You kept saying that you loved me
I kept saying that's enough

And all the while the band just marched right on
And all the while we hummed to different songs

You told me you were angry
You swore I buried all your hurt
While I dug a little deeper
Until I swallowed all the dirt

And all the while our bones they turned to dust
And all the while our friends just drift from us

But we'll be so happy
You'll find Jesus, then you'll tell me
Let's just wait for some World War
And all our problems will be taken care of
So why would you fight for me?
You'd be so happy, so right, so complete
And you swore that could never be
I read the book, baby

So we'll be so happy
You'll go to heaven and you won't invite me
So I guess I'll wait for that World War
Cause what more do I have to wait for?
So why would you fight for me?
You say you've got solutions like I've got collusions
And I know you do not trust me
I read the book, baby
