Lyrics

All Our Emergencies ~
A. Brown / W. Gillespie 2013

This is where they send you when you get in trouble
That’s the door you walk through when no one will take you in
This is where they save the godless daughters of the devil
This is where they take them when they start to show their sin

This is where they send you when they scrape you off the sidewalk
This is where they pull the shards of glass out of your eye
That’s the door you walk out when they put you back together
This is where they hold your hand and say you’ll be alright
If you’ll be alright

Bad luck and bad decisions
Stitches and incisions
All our disease
All our emergencies
We just threw them at her feet

Now she looks so lonesome as she’s crumbling abandoned
The doors are locked the fence is high the weeds are growing tall
Walking by you look up and you can’t help but imagine
Behind which of these boarded windows your first breath was drawn

Bad luck and bad decisions
Stitches and incisions
All our disease
All our emergencies
We just threw them at her feet

How many nameless voices are still quiet waiting patient
How many ghosts still linger waiting for a resting place
What will we find when they tear it down to the foundation
There are some wounds that never heal and scars you can’t erase

Bad luck and bad decisions
Stitches and incisions
All our disease
All our emergencies
We just threw them at her feet
