Track Name: un-American Gothic
un-American Gothic

We arrived upon the tide
Dying to be free
I made you my young bride and we claimed destiny
Westward through the Plains
We killed everything
We left no remains
We wrote songs we could sing
We were young we were the poorest
It was ours for the taking
We built alters in the forest
We shared in all the making
We assembled our masters
In the cities of regretting
Ever forward, ever faster
We got to good at forgetting

I’m afraid we’ve gone too far
No one can save us now
Yes, I’m afraid we’ve gone too far
No one can save us now

So we rallied ‘round the story
With the armies of our hearts
Through the shame and all the glory
We bled for a new start
And we knew that we were right
But still we got the blues
We danced into the night
We stood too much to lose
Then we found love at the speedway
In the twilight’s last gleaming
But we ignored where the greed lay
As the fireworks were streaming
Now the poison’s in the water
But we tell ourselves were winning
Selling out our sons and daughters
Just to keep the wheels spinning

I’m afraid we’ve gone too far
No one can save us now
Yes, I’m afraid we’ve gone too far
No one can save us now
Did I ever belong to you
‘Cause you never belonged to me
When did we give up on trying
Get blinded by the dream
I’m afraid we’ve gone too far
No one can save us now

There was going to be peace in the valley
We were going to build a better day
Now you’re ducking down a dark alley
I can’t look at you too long
Before I have to turn away

I’m afraid we’ve gone too far
No one can save us now
Yes, I’m afraid we’ve gone too far
No one can save us now
Did I ever belong to you
‘Cause you never belonged to me
When did we give up on trying
Get blinded by the dream
I’m afraid we’ve gone too far
No one can save us now
