lyrics

All the kings’ horses all the kings’ men
Couldn’t put me back together again
So I rounded up the strangest friends
Stayed out late meandering shameless
Lost all my convictions making
Lemonade from the stars and sadness
You were full of seeds I was full of ashes
Old as mountains but young and reckless

Rain exploded on top of my head
Volcanoes crying
That July was not for rejoicing
But to celebrate the unfair in every, everything

I climbed down to the bottom
Made my choices salt like Sodom
Flirting with the devil in the heat of our youth
The tar sticking hard to our souls and not our shoes

Rain exploded all under our feet
Glass soda bottles hitting concrete
That July was not for wishing
But for nighttime, nighttime, nighttime driving

Now the sky is on fire
And you crucify all that matters
All the time all the time all the time all the time all the time

Rain exploded in the speckled streets
Fireworks over the crystallized sea
That July was not for joking
But for making the most of everything
