Circa Survive - The Lottery Lyrics



It happened all in the passing of light
We won’t see it coming
I know that we’ll all lose in time
But my mind won’t stop running

Blame it on the air that you breathe
Well I can’t see how anything’s nursed on disease
Nothing is clean in this place
Our only hope is cutting off the nose to spite the face

Who’ll take the lottery?
Don’t look away
We’re the unlucky ones
I won’t let it tear us apart!
Who’ll take the lottery?
Don’t look away
We’re the unlucky ones
I won’t let it take you

This intrusion’s a functioning curse
Break the thumb and the whole hand will hurt
It’s not like moving backwards in time
It happened all in the passing of light

Blame it on the air that you breathe
Well I can’t see how anything’s nursed on disease
Nothing is clean in this place
Our only hope is cutting off the nose to spite the face

Who’ll take the lottery?
We’re the unlucky ones
I won’t let it tear us apart

Who’ll take the lottery?
Don’t look away
We’re the unlucky ones
I won’t let it take you
Who’ll take the lottery?
Don’t look away
We’re the unlucky ones
I won’t let it take you

    Kailash

    What Thursday album is good? Are they anything like circa...? Love this song

    Mike Means

    @KailashWouldn't really say they are similar to circa. Fantastic band though. they evolved a lot over the years. Lots of screaming early on with albums like waiting.

    I'd just try a song or 2 from each album. You can see the differences pretty easily.

    Dustin Kaglic

    @Kailash the entire full collapse and war all the time album are masterpieces beginning to end.

    Kailash

    @Dustin Kaglic thanks. i've recently discovered sunny day real estate too who are like an emo band before emo was a thing :p

    Dustin Kaglic

    @Kailash Thursday actually introduced me to that whole genre of music. There's some really amazing bands that go unnoticed
