lyrics

It's over and done
We lost the war and they won
Now I'm sending up smoke signals
Hoping Someone will respond

Over and done
We lost the war and they won
Now I'm sending up smoke signals
Hoping Someone will respond

Oh this palace is in shambles
Communications are scrambled
Peasants hardly talk
While the clergy they ramble

Dark days
Poetic Shades of grey
Anomalies defy the reason
Excuses become easier to say

Suburban sprawl
Made this all into a ghetto
Bald headed western way
Ripped out the roots
While digging out our graves

Mayday
All systems overload
Scuttled your own ship
And like a good captain
You're going down with it

Blame it all on the man
He cursed me with adversity
So I'll be tendering my resignation
Is that all you can stand today?

It's over and done
We lost the war and they won
Now I'm sending up smoke signals
Hoping Someone will respond

Over and done
We lost the war and they won
Now I'm sending up smoke signals
