Lyrics

Yesterday was a party; today it ends
This is a city that breaks but never bends
Crying in the streets--get used to the sound
Not enough of anything to go around

I'm sorry Mama, I'm sorry
We're trying, we're trying
There's someone coming tomorrow
The water's still rising
Though the rain's not coming down
No one's coming for this town

We're in the eye of a storm of apathy
Soon to be replaced by a new tragedy
These old walls dissolve at the slightest touch
Just add water and the houses turn to dust

I'm sorry Mama, I'm sorry
We're trying, we're trying
There's someone coming tomorrow
The water's still rising
Though the rain's not coming down
No one's coming for this town

I'm sorry Mama, I'm sorry
We're trying, we're trying
There's someone coming, I promise
The water's still rising
Though the rain's not coming down
No one's coming for this town
