lyrics

It’s like it wasn’t empty
(What I thought about it)
I thought it would be empty -
Thought a lot about it

In nineteen hundred twenty
We were up above it
And then when we were twenty
Thought we’d learn to love it

You put your veins all in it
I used my blood to fill it
And still it wouldn’t breathe
Wouldn’t breathe
Wouldn’t breathe

And then I tried
To override the system
But all the waves had ways
Of crashing down

But there were times of plenty
And we danced around it
But in the time of plenty
Had no way to ground it
Had no way to ground it

You had your veins all in it
And so we couldn’t kill it
But still it wouldn’t breathe
Wouldn’t breathe
Wouldn’t breathe

And then I tried
To override the system
But all the waves had ways
Of crashin
And then I tried
To override the system
But all the waves had ways
Of crashing down

The ghost we came to know
Had overactive undertow
The ghost we came to know
Was living in the ground below
The ghost we came to know
Could never let the system go
The ghost we came to know
The ghost of all we know (oooh)

And then I tried
To override the system
But all the waves had ways
Of crashing
And then I tried
To override the system
But all the waves had ways
Of crashing down
