Lyrics

Whenever days slip away and every moment with me
Feels like I'm floating in space because I want to believe
These are my halcyon days, but I'm afraid of my age
And don't know anyone's names because I can't concentrate,
Oh, I am never letting go of you.

Whenever weeks slip away from being caught in the wake
Of the American craze - the overtime, underpaid.
These are the Amazon days, we are the binge watching age
And we'll be stuck in a screen until our phones fall asleep.
I am never letting go of you.

We'll get lost and wander off distracted by fake news.
When our towns fall to the ground it won't shatter me and you
And when we're looking around at all the shit that went down
'Cause half of us were too scared and half of us were too proud
To see the systems we start are destined to fall apart
When we let power and green corrupt our collective heart,
Oh, I am never letting go of you.

We'll get lost and wander off enraptured by fake doom.
When our towns fall to the ground, oh, it won't shatter me and you
Whenever we feel ashamed to be alive and awake
In such an era of hate and military police.
These are the mass murder days.
We are the blast damage days
Where we can't love anything
Because they keep us afraid,
Oh, I will be there kicking, fighting, beating, screaming,
"There's no fucking way I'm ever letting go of you."
