about

From the EP, "I Promised You Mermaids, but the Ocean Was Empty", coming in September.

lyrics

I've been up all night
Staring down my life
Peering up the barrel
Of an old tin can

When the Martians land
I hope you understand
I'm not giving up
Without a fight

Behold these seven plagues
They might all be fake
Never mind the locusts
Blacking out the sun

If the Rapture comes
I'll be having fun
You'll see, I'll be
The last one in

| These are the Strangest Days
| Summer drifts in endless waves
| These are the End of Days
| Tonight we'll hold each other tight
| And sway

I've been down all day
Hiding in my cave
Watching as the world
Starts to fall apart

When the revolution starts
I'll ignite the spark
You'll see, I'll be
The first one in

| These are the Strangest Days
| Summer drifts in endless waves
| These are the End of Days
| Tonight we'll hold each other tight
| And sway

Let's just sleep all day

| These are the Strangest Days...
