The Airborne Toxic Event All At Once Lyrics

We were born without time

Nameless in the arms

Of a mother, a father, and God

When the world would wait for us

A thousand years in the crush

Of our eyes, fearless, and awed

So quietly, we’d fade into sleep

With nothing on our mind(s)

Hoo, hoo, hoo..

And then we longed to be loved

In the rush, we become

Some things we thought we’d never be

We were surprised by how hard

Left wary and scarred

From the nights spent feeling incomplete

And all those evenings swearing at the sky

Wishing for more time

All the promises we broke when we tried

Just wastin’ all our time

Hoo, hoo..

We grow old all at once

And it comes like a punch

In the gut, in the back, in the face

When it seems someone’s lied

And our parents have died

Then we hold onto each other in their place

And I feel the water risin’ around us

Maybe that’s okay

Yeah, I feel the world changin’ all at once

I guess it’ll be okay

Hoo, hoo, hoo..

And we all had one hope

There was someone lookin’ down

To return our bodies to each other

And the ground
