lyrics

Saturday is a day of mourning
I can't wait to put my black on
Those shiny new threads woven with joy
Saturday is a day of mourning
I can't wait to wear my veil
Conceal my dry eyes from the world

I live to defy you
Because you make it clear you don't think anything can get by you
But as you watch me slip
From your clammy grip
Your temper will boil
And your cold, tired heart will return you into the soil

Saturday is a day of laughter
I can't wait to hear those booming voices from inside this dark room
Saturday is a day of smiling
I can't wait to cry my eyes out
Been saving all my grief and gloom

I live to defy you
Because you make it clear you don't think anything can get by you
But as you watch me slip
from your clammy grip
your anger will rise
and your rusty ships will capsize
and your empire will fall
all the monuments and walls
crumble on your jewelled tomb
as you look up for your savior
But they'll be coming from the ground
You'll finally see who are your saviors
Your transactions will be blocked
Causing massive overstock
Of carbon in your veins
And you'll finally feel the pain
Through the hard stares of the survivors
There's no vaccine for their virus
your temper will boil
And your cold, tired heart
Will return you into the soil

Saturday is a day there'll be a call for submission
but I won't answer anymore
