lyrics

Oh let's start a fire darlin', Oh let's start a war
I've lived for 17 years my darlin' and im about to live for 6 more
But when I'm 24 I'll perish and I'll have my blood smeared across the floor
Oh let's start an anthem darlin', Let's start singing' a song
We can try to get all the words right darlin' but some of them will be wrong
And we'll perish in a nuclear holocaust when my bones turn to french fries

I'm starting to think that it's with you my darlin' that I would like to die
So please save me from your smiling face or I think I might just cry

Oh let's start a living darlin', Oh let's make a pact
We can join up all the false memories of our absent dads
And we can think about the future that will never come for either you or me
Oh let's start a cult my darlin', Oh lets start some fun
We can set up all our lawn chairs and think about the puns
That we used to laugh at younger ages and of simpler minds

Oh I'm starting to think that it's with you my darlin' that I would like to die
So please save me from your smiling face or I think I might just cry
So please save me from your smiling face or I think I might just cry
So please save me from your smiling face cause I think I might just cry
