Pride & Glory

PRIDE AND GLORY

You can bet
Your pride and glory
You can bet my tattered clothes
Best expect
Their tailored story
Just don’t forget that faded rose!  
That faded rose!
Don't forget that

They can get
More arms behind them
Blood and sweat
Such twisted fate
Lest they forget
Alarms remind them that they’re
Round the bend and
Almost too late
They're round the bend

Behold the flood it’s arbitrary
And the blood is on their hands
Down slides the mud, it’s gotten scary
As the whale lies
And the bird dies
And the oil dries
On the sands

You can bet
Each pail and potion
All the tears
That fell before
Destined still to mean an ocean
All arriving
Arriving at one shore
They’re all arriving

You can bet
More pride than glory
And you can bet these tattered clothes
Best expect
Their tailored story
Just don’t forget that faded rose!
That faded rose
No don’t forget that faded rose
That faded rose

Behold the flood it’s arbitrary
And the blood is on their hands
Down slides the mud, it’s gotten scary
As the whale lies
And the bird dies
And the oil dries
On the sands
Oil dries on the sands
