Airborne Toxic Event, The - Welcome To Your Wedding Day Lyrics




It's another fine day of nation-building
Let's have a parade
You can dance on the graves and the 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

And it's a damn good day
For the heart and the mind
And the party's happening here
If you'll avert your gaze form the word on the sign
Let me whisper it in your ear
Cause the sign says "run"
Cause the sign says "run"
Cause the sign says "run"
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
Welcome to your wedding

"And we want peace"
"Yeah, we want peace"
"And we don't negotiate with terror"
"We don't negotiate with terror"
"We don't negotiate with terror"
"We don't negotiate with terror"
"We don't negotiate with terror"
"We don't negotiate with terror"
"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
Welcome to your wedding

  2. Timothy Torres

    The Great Nerf War: Bandits Of Abandon.

  3. Cancer Itself

    they didn't play this at my concert but I loved the concert

  4. Trent

    I LOVE this song! It used to be my jam! I guess it still is!

    Timothy Torres

    +Lightning Crystal Gaming "Used to"? What do you mean?

    Trent

    Timothy Torres I used to listen to it like 60 times a day, then it kinda drifted

  5. Maddy Lang

    I saw TATE on Friday and they did this one first. It was SO good!!!!

  6. Daniel Neill

    This song is about an american drone strike that hit a wedding in the middle east... And people smiley faces in the comment section...

    cydonis2k

    I don't think so...considering this video was uploaded on October 13, 2011 and the song came out before that, and the drone strike was last year (http://www.democracynow.org/2014/2/21/turning_a_wedding_into_a_funeral)

    Soooooo yeah I don't think TATE can forsee the future :p

    @cydonis2k Really?.....really? This is a lyrical video = Fan made. Not the original. The song was created in response to the Deh Bala wedding party bombing airstrike which happened in 2008......get your facts straight before you try to act smart.

    Traxxasred

    @cydonis2k lol this is one of the funniest comments i have ever seen in my entire time on youtube or any website. this song was written about the deh bala strike which happened on july 6th 2008. the link you posted is another wedding that has also been airstriked since then. it happens so often, and theres so many cases of weddings getting airstriked, that its hard to tell which one someone is referring to. thats how bad it is.

    I do gotta say that some of u r really stupid and all you did was copy what the person before u said you just used it ina different sentence

    Jakanmandan

    It’s just a fucking song, let people enjoy things!

  7. suicidemayhem

    lol copyright reasons? you uploaded someone elses song, making it mobile wont change that.

  8. blondedbythelight703

    Are you sure this isn't Green Day?

    Timothy Torres

    +blondedbythelight703 Green Day's lead singer sounds different.

    Jakanmandan

    Yes I’m pretty fucking sure, they sound completely different, Green Day only has three members (including the singer), while The Airborne Toxic Event has five members

  9. John Ratcliffe

    Whenever i hear this i just want to play rugby. Thanks alot Canada

  10. Antonio Lopez

    I LOVE this song. This belongs in a Guitar Hero game.



    In some way, it also makes me think about Sandy Hook.

    Jakanmandan

    Antonio Lopez why?!

  11. j. De Hoyos

    google "Deh Bala wedding party bombing"

  12. Kirstie Perkins

    it almost sounds like Gaara from Naruto is singing this :)

  13. Cole Booth

    The beginning of this song reminds me of the theme of Good Eats... In a good way, though.

  14. deranger17

    It was written in response to an wedding in the middle east that was hit by a misfired drone. Interesting comparison.

    Matthew Plizga

    deranger17 not the drone it was just a bombing moron

  15. RoCkeRsByMySide

    3:42 for replay =p

  16. Winter S

    I just accidently discovered The Airborne Toxic Event today.....and I now have a new favorite band.

  17. beingfunisfun

    the beginning reminds a bit of Uprising by Muse <3

  18. brancool88

    this sounds like a wedding in district 12

  19. Hestonio

    @MegaJillyBean123 It's in protest of the US government's Predator drone strikes that killed almost everyone at a civilian wedding celebration in Afghanistan.

    Matthew Plizga

    Hestonio NOT A DRONE THIS IS ABOUT A BOMBING AT A WEDDING

  20. MegaJillybean123

  21. Brian Cottle
