Color Theory – The Fifth Of July Lyrics

[Verse 1]
Gunpowder traces
Charcoal circles on the ground
Shot me with a Roman candle
You really shouldn’t fool around

[Verse 2]
We stood there barefoot
Sweating in the summer heat
As the rockets turned to rainbows
In the middle of our street

[Chorus 1]
Now the smoke has cleared
The fireworks show is over
Steam and sulfur
Now the smoke has cleared
The days when we were closer
Ashes smolder
On the fifth of July

[Verse 3]
I count ten heartbeats
Face the heat of your red glare

How I’ll miss these grand explosions
F-bombs bursting in the air

[Chorus 2]
Now the smoke has cleared
The fireworks show is over
Steam and sulfur
Now the smoke has cleared
Declare your independence
Or pledge allegiance
Do you want to be free
From me?

[Chorus 3]
Now the smoke has cleared
The fireworks show is over
Steam and sulfur
Now the smoke has cleared
Declare your independence
Or pledge allegiance
Don’t you want to be free?
To be free
On the fifth of July
