Background

This song was eventually cut, presumably due to thematic differences from the rest of the album, as well as the controversial and sensitive nature of the song.

The song is about two lovers, one of which is trying to tell the other that everything will be alright. There is mass fan-speculation that it is about the Boston Marathon Bombing. The song could also be about a person going through chemotherapy due to lyrical similarities to the cancer treatment.

The song has 4 known versions.

  • The "Demo 1" version (4:04). This is the first known version of the song.
  • The "Demo 2" version (4:04). This is the second known version of the song. There are only minor differences between this demo and the previous.
  • The "Demo 3" version. This is the third known version of the song. It has yet to be leaked.
  • The final version (4:04). This is the most finished version of the song known to exist. It has a different key and vocal take to the earlier demos. When this version leaked on Dbree, it was mislabelled as the song's demo version.

Cross-References

  • "[...], carousel spinnin'" is a direct reference to "Carousel".
  • The lyric "Our peaceful, little perfect family" could be a veiled reference to "Dollhouse".
  • A post-apocalyptic life is also discussed in "Fire Drill".

Lyrics

[Verse 1]
Pinky promise
I'll still love your garden
Even with no flowers
Even with no flowers
Doctor's orders
Don't be brokenhearted
Time will still be ours
Time will still be ours

[Pre-Chorus]
Never thought that something
Something so tragic
Could ever happen to
Our peaceful, little perfect family
I promise
Promise to love you
You and the children
Carousel spinnin'
Our neighborhood will always be this pretty

[Chorus]
Bombs are falling
On Monday morning
Waiting for the news together
An explosion, any moment
You make moments last forever and ever
(You make moments last forever)

[Verse 2]
Eyes like hazel
Twinkle in the starlight
Even when they're crying
Even when they're crying
Constellations
Forming out of scar lines
Even when they're dying
Love will still be trying

[Pre-Chorus]
Never thought that something
Something so tragic
Could ever happen to
Our peaceful, little perfect family
I promise
Promise to love you
You and the children
Carousel spinnin'
Our neighborhood will always be this pretty

[Chorus]
Bombs are falling
On Monday morning
Waiting for the news together
An explosion, any moment
You make moments last forever and ever

[Bridge]
Bombs are falling on Monday morning
Bombs are falling, you make moments last forever

[Chorus]
Bombs are falling
On Monday morning
Waiting for the news together
An explosion, any moment
You make moments last forever and ever

[Outro]
Bombs are falling (You make moments last forever and ever)
On Monday morning
Bombs are falling (You make moments last forever and ever)
You make moments last forever
You make moments last forever

[Verse 1]
Pinky promise
I'll still love your garden
Even with no flowers
Even with no flowers
Doctor's orders
Don't be brokenhearted
Time will still be ours
Time will still be ours

[Pre-Chorus]

Something so tragic
Could ever happen to
Our peaceful, little perfect family
I promise
Promise to love you
You and the children
Carousel spinnin'
Our neighborhood will always be this pretty

Bombs are falling
On Monday morning
Waiting for the news together
An explosion, any moment
You make moments last forever and ever
(You make moments last forever)

[Verse 2]
Eyes like hazel

Even when they're crying
Even when they're crying
