lyrics

Don’t know what
To ready for
The walls are down
The broken doors--

Can’t Hold On

Anarchy is a sweet perfume
Burning up
The living room
Can’t Hold On

Get out get out while you can
Don’t look back ever again
The world we’ve built has just fallen
It all goes in a second

Panic is
An open door
We’re sliding through
Don’t know what for

Can’t hold on

Everything’s in
Gasoline
Our policies
Are burning

Can’t hold on, hold on

Get out get out if you can
Don’t look back ever again
The world we’ve built has fallen
It all goes in a second

No wingman
No telescope
The temple has
No window rope
No sugar
For my bread today
What prayers
Can you say now

Wake me up
Three feet of rain
You got up
On the wrong day

Can't Hold on

Batter down
In the diamond ring
Sleeping in the stadium

Can't Hold On

Get out get out while you can
Don’t look back ever again
The world we’ve built has just fallen
It all goes in a second

Freedom comes at a price
Americans

Get in line
Americans

Smell the gas
Americans

Anyone got a match?
