lyrics

God lives underground
In a dark & dirty hole
He's waiting to be found
So we dig to save our souls

Now this town is hollow
We dug until we bled
We never did find god
Found the devil instead

And the ghosts of our families are starving from beyond the grave
You spoke for what's left of us and those who you could not save.

So Merry Christmas Jim
I'm very far from home
But i'm with you I'm with you I'm with you
I'm standing tall.

Trapped in the town that burns you
A canary in a cage
Surrounded by the poison
United by the rage

And the ghosts of our families are starving from inside their graves
They bent and they stumbled until they found out
That what they'd been working for had cast all their doubts.

Watching, waiting
Until they come home

Sometimes they go out
And they don't come home.

There's a siren that I hear
When I'm all alone

I tremble because I know
They won't come home.
