Music Monday: Young Cardinals by: Alexisonfire

Hi guys! Happy Monday! I’m here with another Music Monday. This meme was created by Drew @The Tattooed Book Geek.

I think I’m finally out of my bubble gum pop phase… I haven’t been able to stop listening to The Used’s In Love and Death album since their 15 year anniversary was September 29… I can’t believe it’s been 15 years… where does the time go?

Anyways, today I’m going with Alexisonfire because like I’ve said before, I love anything Dallas Green does. Alexisonfire are from St. Catherines, Ontario.

Lyrics:

[Verse 1: George Pettit]
(Go!)
Strange things happen in the nighttime hour
Yesterday’s buds are tomorrow’s flowers
Those who speak numbers, refuse the great forgiver
And powerful men raise their hands and deliver
All the superstitions to which we all cling
While high minds in Geneva ponder E8 versus string
The sun hides itself concealing its grin
And waits for the dawn to reveal itself again

[Chorus: Dallas Green]
Oh, young cardinals
Nesting in the trees
Oh, hear our songs
And reign your innocence on me

[Verse 2: George Pettit]
(One, two, three, four!)
Strange things happen in the nighttime hours
White tails graze and wolves devour
Ghosts of old loves are blowing through the vines
Nicotine babies being born with no spines
The god of the sea is swinging his trident
We stoke our fires with the bones of tyrants
The sun, it retreats through the dust and the din
And waits for the dawn to reveal itself again

[Chorus: Dallas Green]
Oh, young cardinals
Nesting in the trees
Oh, hear our songs
And reign your innocence on me

[Bridge: George Pettit]
Young cardinals take flight
Return to nest in the black of night
There are things you were not meant to know
Young cardinals take flight
Return to nest in the black of night
There are things you were not meant to know

[Chorus: Dallas Green]
Oh, young cardinals
Nesting in the trees
Oh, hear our songs
And reign your innocence on me

[Outro: Dallas Green]
Oh, young cardinals
Oh, young cardinals
Oh, young cardinals
Oh, young cardinals
Oh!
