sons and daughters lyrics – decemberists

when we arrive, sons and daughters
we’ll make our homes on the water
we’ll build our walls of aluminum
we’ll fill our mouths with cinnamon now

these currents pull us across the border
steady your boats, arms to shoulder
’till tides will pull our hull to ground
making this cold harbor now home

take up your arms, sons and daughters
we will arise from the bunkers
by land, by sea, by dirigible
we’ll leave our tracks untraceable now

when we arrive, sons and daughters
we’ll make our homes on the water
we’ll build our walls of aluminum
we’ll fill our mouths with cinnamon now

when we arrive, sons and daughters
we’ll make our homes on the water
we’ll build our walls of aluminum
we’ll fill our mouths with cinnamon now

when we arrive, sons and daughters
we’ll make our homes on the water
we’ll build our walls with aluminum
we’ll fill our mouths with cinnamon now

when we arrive, sons and daughters
we’ll make our homes on the water
we’ll build our walls with aluminum
we’ll fill our mouths with cinnamon now

hear all the bombs, they fade away
hear all the bombs, they fade away
hear all the bombs, they fade away
hear all the bombs, they fade away

hear all the bombs, they fade away
hear all the bombs, they fade away
hear all the bombs, they fade away
hear all the bombs, they fade away

hear all the bombs, they fade away
hear all the bombs, they fade away
hear all the bombs, they fade away
hear all the bombs, they fade away

hear all the bombs, they fade away
hear all the bombs, they fade away
hear all the bombs, they fade away
hear all the bombs, they fade away

hear all the bombs, they fade away
hear all the bombs, they fade away
hear all the bombs, they fade away
hear all the bombs, they fade away
