goodbye, goodnight lyrics – jars of clay

a flower for your vanity, a penny for your thoughts
about the world’s insanity and how we’ve gotten lost
strike up the band to play a song as we go waltzing by
and fake a smile as we all say goodbye
goodbye, oh goodbye

say a prayer for recognition, kiss the ones you love
gather up the ammunition, sigh for all the lost
strike up the band to play a song as we go waltzing by
and fake a smile as we all say goodbye

raise a gl*ss for ignorance, drink a toast to fear
the beginning of the end has come that’s why we all are here
strike up the band to play a song and try hard not to cry
and fake a smile as we all say goodbye
goodbye
