Brand New - The Archers' Bows Have Broken Lyrics




Who do you carry that torch for, my young man?
Do you believe in anything?
Do you carry it around just to burn things down?

Meet me tonight on the turnpike, my darling
Cause we believe in everything
If we sweat all these debts then we're sure to drown
So let's strap ourselves up to this engine now
With a god who we found lying under the backseat

What did you learn tonight?
You're shouting so loud you barely joyous, broken thing
You're a voice that never sings
Is what I say
You are freezing over hell
You are bringing on the end, you do so well
You can only blame yourself
It's what I say

Order your daughters to ignore me, think that will sort me
And sweep me under the rug
While you're beating with a book everyone
The book tells you to love

There is an ember in the heart of the kiln
And it's burning hot with love
Burning out my sins until there's nothing but dust
Rolling me with care into your cigarette
'Cause the god I believe in never worked on a campaign trail

What did you learn tonight?
You're shouting so loud you barely joyous, broken thing
You're a voice that never sings
Is what I say
You are freezing over hell
You are bringing on the end, you do so well
You can only blame yourself
It's what I say

Who do you carry that torch for, my young man?
Do you believe in anything?
Do you carry it around just to burn things to the ground?

What did you learn tonight?
You're shouting so loud you barely joyous, broken thing
You're a voice that never sings
Is what I say
You are freezing over hell
You are bringing on the end, you do so well
You can only blame yourself
It's what I say

Feels like we could escape this
I might throw it away for fear of the silver sun
If you try running a maze of your lies
It's too hard to save you've thrown out everyone
