lyrics

When all the hard drives are finally corrupted
and the militaries shoot off all their guns,
it's gonna look real bleak when we finally peek
and we'll want to hear from our most creative ones.
That's why the artists will take over before the end of the world,
the freak will be the last flag to be unfurled.
When the Offices of Vital Statistics
and the DMVs all crumble as they must,
they'll hang collages from the trees made of invalid IDs
and build sculptures out of apocalyptic dust.
Because the artists will take over before the end of the world,
the freak will be the last flag to be unfurled.
And if I get the chance, get to wear those pants,
I might even dance under the circumstance.
I'll hang on every line, written, sung and serpentine,
and I'll try to combine sun tea and moonshine.
When the politicians run out of elections
and the puppeteers are holding broken strings,
well there's gonna be a show, there won't be anything to do but go
and we'll learn the words as everybody sings, "La la, la la..."
Because the artists will take over before it's all gone for good,
a brief but oh so beautiful tenure in all likelihood.

about

Milk Carton Superstars Orlando, Florida

Milk Carton Superstars make songs out of guitars, drums and some reasonable words. Later Never Now is their new album.
The band formed in 2007 when old friends Guy Larmay (guitars, bass) and Jim Myers (vocals, drums) began writing songs together again for the first time. Based in Orlando, they're often joined on stage by bassist Jeff Boyce and in the studio by producer Justin Beckler.
