The Execution of All Things
Soldiers come quickly
I feel the earth beneath my feet
I'm feelin' badly
It's not an attempt at decency
And if you're well off
Well then, I'm happy some for you
But I'd rather not celebrate my defeat and humiliation here with you

Someone come quickly
This place was built for moving out
Leave behind buildings
The city planners got mapped out
Bring with you history
And make your hard earned feast
Then we'll go to Omaha to work and exploit the boomin' music scene
And humility...

And we've been talkin' all night...

Oh God come quickly
The execution of all things
Let's start with the bears and the air
And mountains, rivers, and streams
Then we'll murder what matters to you
And move on to your neighbors and kids
Crush all hopes of happiness with disease 'cause of what you did

And lastly, you're all alone
With nothing left but sleep
But sleep never comes to you
It's the guilt and forever wakefulness of the weak
It's just you and me....

The execution of all things
The execution of all things
The execution of all things
