lyrics

The engines of rot
Brought their wounded home
From wars they never fought

The hads and the have-nots
Fed the fires of their furnaces
With want

This is what happens when you run out of west

Remember it once flew
In its golden age
Its teenage waste perfumed

So much of little use
For them talking dolls
The mirage stands in ruins

This is what happens when you run out of west

You'll find everyone you love has gone
The band no longer plays your song
Their language is their silence
Your face won't wear what you've become
The flowers wilt beneath your thumb
Your name's only spoke in tongues

This is what happens when you run out of west

The witness was watched
Once they testified
The harsh gaslights called for blood

What's left of resistance
Brought the brunt end of
Their capital across
