lyrics

Gonna start a big fire
feeding all the red flames
of Cardinal City

Drinks out on the top deck
Looking out on the grand
Blushing plenty

It’s a lonely life
That keeps us satisfied
A bitter drink
A bitter cocaine
A bitter the life you got scared to think could die

Wander through the ballroom
Fighting through all the legs
drenched in money

Drive that plight to war now
keep the keeping on top
With more cardinal cities

In a flash of light
we got scared to death of ourselves
and we apologize
and we sympathize
and we keep harrowing one til we lay face down to die

We’re all born in cardinal city
We’re all made for cardinal city
we’re all making cardinal city
our rest your bones, love of your life
Love of your life

I’ve been turned around some
Seems like nothing works
In cardinal city

Staring at the progress
falling into a sigh
of one too many

It’s a lonely life
That keeps us satisfied
A bitter drink
A bitter cocaine
A bitter the life you got scared to think could die

We’re all born in cardinal city
We’re all made for cardinal city
we’re all making cardinal city
our rest your bones, love of your life
Love of your life
