army corps of architects lyrics – death cab for cutie

leaving the central state from shallow ground
home in the valley but the rent’s paid south
you said the urn was half full when i said it was half empty
with what was left of our fair city

call in the army corps of architects
to flatten the skyline and begin again
i knew the years would move quickly,
but never quite as fast as this
so bring the discrepancies, i’ll pour the drinks.
