    Lyrics:

    We took a vow in summertime
    Now we find ourselves in late December

    I believe that New Year’s Eve
    Will be the perfect time
    For their great surrender

    But they don’t remember

    Anger wants a voice
    Voices wanna sing
    Singers harmonize
    Til they can’t hear anything
    I thought that I was free
    From all that questioning
    But every time a problem ends
    Another one begins

    And the stone walls of Harmony Hall
    Bear witness
    Anybody with a worried mind
    Could never forgive the sight
    Of wicked snakes
    Inside a place
    You thought was dignified

    I don’t wanna live like this
    But I don’t wanna die

    Within the halls of power lies
    A nervous heart that beats
    Like a Young Pretender’s

    Beneath these velvet gloves I hide
    The shameful, crooked hands
    Of a moneylender
    Cuz I still remember

    Anger wants a voice
    Voices wanna sing
    Singers harmonize
    Til they can’t hear anything
    I thought that I was free
    From all that questioning
    But every time a problem ends
    Another one begins

    And the stone walls of Harmony Hall
    Bear witness
    Anybody with a worried mind
    Could never forgive the sight
    Of wicked snakes
    Inside a place
    You thought was dignified

    I don’t wanna live like this
    But I don’t wanna die

                Modern Vampire of the City was just too perfect. Gonna be extremely difficult to top that one. That being said, almost everything they put out so far has been nothing short of greatness. To me, they have been the best band.

                              Sad that they fucked the final mix when mastering the album. This one is much better.

                                            Best mishear if a lyric I’ve had in a while. I heard Angkor Wat survives instead of Anger wants a voice lol.
