lyrics

In a bygone era, when you didn’t look up
Unless things were falling down
It was never considered
Important to keep studying the ground
When the pink and the yellow
Combined to form a canvas with the bleeding red
We all started to shiver
And we hid inside our bathrooms to escape the dread

If it’s a lightning storm you’ll see it
If it’s a lightning storm then it’s no contest
I hope you choose not to ignore it
Because you’ll miss the things that we all like best
I saw a glass topple off a building
And it only missed my head by a few hair strands
So can you save those before they start dropping?
Is it a blue sky or the kicking of empty cans?
I caught a boy out on the rooftops
He was sniffing hurriedly remainders of the pops
(And with a bird’s eye view you were crawling)
The streetlamp orange was glowing

If it’s a lightning storm you’ll see it
If it’s a lightning storm then it’s no contest
If it’s a lightning storm you’ll see it
If it’s a lightning storm then it’s no contest

(see, he’s hungry, see, he’s hungry
keep in the tree, keep in the tree)
