lyrics

Is this our lives?
Is this a competition?
I thought you and I were a solid team

And we were surely
On the side of good
What happened to Adam?
What happened to Even?

As it happens
Yes the walls have fallen
And before you ask
Yes, the levees broke

We are nothing
But shortwave static
We're all starving
Thanks for asking

This is me now
It's also you now
Who's chronicling the madness now?
And for whom?

This foundation
This foreign state
It's all no more
and I can't say I blame him

I don't empathize
With what he did
But I can't fault the outcome
At the end of the day

I agree
With the execution
But disagree
With the execution

There are better ways
To gut a pig
And cleaner means
To the final solution

Is this our lives?
Is this a competition?
I thought you and I were a solid team
