lyrics

Before too long, you'll be just as poisoned as us.
You discussed it with yourself,
and you ruled against it,
but your ruling only holds in the present tense. And suddenly:
Before too long, we'll be brothers-in-arms in defeat.
So I caution you: don't stop celebrating.
'cause once you set it down it's already too late for you.

Try not to ask.
We'll write your epitaph.
You're laughing last.
You're laughing last.

Before too long, you can't even look back on yourself.
And the wind will blow,
and I will bend,
and you'll be puffing up your chest and trying to pretend
to hold it back. You'll speak your piece.
Yeah, you'll hammer it in with some force.
But the thing about words is they dissipate,
and by the time they're all gone, it's already too late for you.

You're laughing last, laughing last.

Before too long, we'll be brothers-in-arms in defeat.
'Cause the wind will blow,
and I will bend,
and you'll be puffing up your chest and trying to pretend
it's all a dream. But give it time!
You'll be just as poisoned as us.
So I caution you, don't stop celebrating.
'Cause once you set it down, it's already too late for you.
