lyrics

From West Des Moines to East D.C,
sweat-drenched soldiers fight through the unseen,
saving time for uncontrollable feelings.

This is all my people know,
trudging through the knee-deep snow.
Half-hearted heroes with no half-hearted oaths.

Cuz this age is brutal,
but the way we survive
is by banding together.
Banding, banding, banding
in the toughest of times.

From West G.R to East Lansing,
sweat drenched soldiers have forgotten how to sing.
And they don't know where they're going, so... (come on!)

This is all my people know,
trudging south to *screw* with Ohio!
Armed with flowers, flannel, weed, and oats.
Cuz this age is brutal,
but the way we survive
is by banding together.
Banding, banding, banding
in the toughest of times.

I swear I'm not the only one (x1000)

I swear!

I swear I'm not the only one (x1000)

Cuz this age is brutal but the way we get by
cuz this age is brutal but the way we survive,
cuz this age is brutal but the way we get by
is by banding together.

Cuz this age is brutal,
but the way we survive
is by banding together.
Banding, banding, banding
in the toughest of times.

From West Des Moines to East D.C,
sweat-drenched soldiers fight through the unseen,
saving time for uncontrollable feelings.

This is all my people know,
trudging through the knee-deep snow.
Half-hearted heroes with no half-hearted oaths.
