lyrics

I buried myself in sunshine
I had to break through the clouds
so I played happy pop songs
and turned them up way too loud

and yes I got a bit sunburned
but it's a victory I earned

so what else are we gonna do?
we can't give up just 'cause the bastards won
I'm going down with the ship and they'll say
the band played on, the band played on
the band played on and the band played on

we should've sounded the alarm much sooner
'cause we held on too long
thinking things were gonna turn a corner
it looks like we were wrong

'cause we were seeing things for what they weren't
and that's a lesson we gotta learn

so what else are we gonna do?
we can't give up just 'cause the bastards won
I'm going down with the ship and they'll say
the band played on and the band played on
the band played on and the band played on
the band played on and the band played on

and I don't care if my back's against the wall
I'm coming at 'em like a cannonball

'cause what else are we gonna do?
we can't give up just 'cause the bastards won
I'm going down with the ship and they'll say
the band played on and the band played on
the band played on and the band played on
the band played on and the band played on
the band played on and the band played....
