Welcome to Your Wedding Day

It’s another fine day of nation-building. Let’s have a parade.
You can dance on the graves and bones of their children, if you know what to say.

And you know it’s begun from the beat of the drum and the screams
from the mouths of babes. And we pray as we’re watching the charade.

Welcome to your wedding day.

It’s a damn good day for the heart and mind, and the party’s happening here.
If you’ll avert your gaze from the word on the sign, let me whisper it in your ear:

‘Cause the sign says “run.”

And you know it’s begun from the crack of the guns and the screams
from the mouths of babes. And we pray as we’re watching the charade.

Welcome to your wedding day.

“And we want peace”
“Yeah, we want peace”
“And we don’t negotiate with terror”
“We only watch them beg.”

And you know it’s begun from the crack of the guns and the screams
from the mouths of babes. And we pray as we’re watching the charade.

Welcome to your wedding day.
