[VIDEO] New album preview #2: Fireflies

We’re excited to bring you guys another new album preview! “Fireflies” filmed live in the studio. Share and spread the word.

Massive shout out to everyone who’s pledged so far. Thanks to you we’ve been able to record the bed tracks for the songs in a great studio with a killer engineer. We still have a ways to go to cover mixing, mastering and manufacturing costs so if you’d like to help, just head to pledge.thesunpilots.com and pick one of the rewards to contribute.


FIREFLIES

We are the soldiers in a war that we never want to win;
Trained monkeys do what we’re told for soil and gold
Give us your tired, your poor, your huddled masses, we’ll pretend
To sympathise then
Throw them back and watch them drown again…

Bitter lies like fireflies
Burning through my brain
Feels so good to be so numb-
Never want to change
Feed them to the beasts below,
Let them burn I say
Give me more, so I’ll ignore
The body count today

Dressed to kill in the blood they spill, such a pretty shade of red
Shame they had to lose their heads again…

This is the hour, don’t be late
Thought we’d never be here?
You should’a known better
This is the hour, don’t be late
This is the hour
Don’t…

FIREFLIES

We are the soldiers in a war that we never want to win;
Trained monkeys do what we’re told for soil and gold...
Give us your tired, your poor, your huddled masses, we’ll pretend
To sympathise the
Throw them back and watch them drown again...

Bitter lies like fireflies
Burning through my brain
Feels so good to be so numb-
Never want to change
Feed them to the beasts below,
Let them burn I say
Give me more, so I'll ignore
The bodycount today
