Buried lyrics - Alkaline Trio

I'm awake
It was a half bad dream
That was way too long
My whole life it seemed
Then someone started digging me up
Turned my headstone into dust

The sun was swallowed by the trees
The night was here for good
You pulled my hair, picked my head up
You put oxygen into my blood
You walked me through the gates like we were visitors for the day
You laid me down in the back seat
And you drove till I woke up to hear you say

You never lie but it's no fun to tell the truth
I guess I never loved but I will see what I can do
Got so much life to waste that I would take my days and hand them to you

I'm awake
It was a half bad dream
That was way too long
My whole life it seemed
Than someone started digging me up
Turned my headstone into dust

I know you never lie but it's no fun to tell the truth
I guess I never loved but I will see what I can do
Got so much life to waste that I would take my days and hand them to you

I know you never lie but it's so square to tell the truth
I guess I never loved but I will see what I can do
Got so much life to waste that I would take my days and hand them to you

To you [x4]

I Remember A Rooftop lyrics - Alkaline Trio

I remember a rooftop making out
Downstairs the carpet screamed so loud
I waited so long for that night
Then I just turned away
And I know every street
On the west side
But I was lost, unfound, not right

Maybe there's something wrong inside
Now I've got nowhere to go
My answer's all that I've got
I'm so sorry for so many things
That I haven't said yet
This is the waiting room I spent my whole life in
They gave me a thousand hands so I could count my sins
If I'm lucky maybe I'll finish before the roof caves in

I lost my life on the first try
You found it miles down the line
A swollen face with
3 first names

You kissed the taste back in my tongue
You sucked the smoke out of my lungs
And then we slept for days and days and days

When we woke up
My heart I choked up
Had to say I love you way too soon
But right there on your couch
You loved me too
Right there on your couch
You loved me too

19 and sober once or twice
I caught some junkie's bad advice
Up to my eyes in others' problems
Couldn't see I never solve them
My Only skin and bone

And this and pills unknown
I took my lousy shot
At public recognition
Could never pull the trigger
If I wasn't shaking

I lost my life on the first try
You found it miles down the line
A swollen face with
3 first names

You kissed the taste back in my tongue
You sucked the smoke out of my lungs
And then we slept for days and days and days

When we woke up
My heart I choked up
Had to say I love you way too soon
But right there on your couch
You loved me too
Right there on your couch
You loved me too

L, I, S, H,
Eight hundred,
Now I feel a whole lot better about myself
O, L, D, E,
E, N, G,
L, I, S, H,
Eight hundred,
Now I feel a whole lot better about myself

You're charcoal filtered,
Sun yellow malt liquor,
You make my grey skies blue
I drink it daily,
As my liver's failing,
But I don't give a fuck,
Olde English I'm in love with you

O, L, D, E,

You're charcoal filtered,
Sun yellow malt liquor,
You make my grey skies blue
I drink it daily,
As my liver's failing,
But I don't give a fuck,
Olde English I'm in love with you,
Olde English I'm in love with you,
Olde English I'm in love with you,
You!

Warbrain lyrics - Alkaline Trio

[Spoken:]
"Thoughts are the shadows of feelings, always darker, emptier, and simpler.
I don't care if they're fake or real, I just thank that they're showing up at all.
I have black periods. Who does not? But they are not a part of me; they are not a part of illness, but a part of my being.
Some might say I have the courage to have them. It's four o' clock in the morning. This sucks."

I can't go on
You said my head's too heavy
I need that song
Those trusty chords could pull me through
and early on
they saw the warning signs and symptoms all day long
We sit and dream of better days

Where we'd hit the ground running on empty stories we've been told
And all those nights we spent together never felt this fucking cold
When we let the car run in the driveway kiss you one last time
Before we brought the horses in before the storm of '59, of '59, of '59

I can't go on, these limbs have grown too heavy
I need that song
A night on earth could pull me through
and early on
They saw the warning signs and symptoms all day long
Wonder how far from here we'll fall

Before we hit the ground running on empty stories we've been told
And all those nights we spent together never felt this fucking cold
When we let the car run in the driveway kiss you one last time
Before we brought the horses in before the storm of '59, of '59, of '59 [x3]

We Can Never Break Up lyrics - Alkaline Trio

We can never break up
We can never not show
We can never go home
No, we can never elope

We've only got one choice
So let's keep making it
And making it
Making it
And making it

A lot of things can change
A lot of tears will dry
There's no way out of your head
I can't still drink like I'm trying

I never had to work too hard
Let's keep working it
And working it
Working it
And working it

You're like a test, I can't fuck up
You're like a song in my head, like a la la la la la like a dream
Don't wake me up and if I never see the light again
Well I guess they put me in the ground with this smile on my head, my love
My love

We can never break up
We can never not show
We can never go home
And we can never elope

We've only got one choice
So let's keep making it
And making it
Making it
And making it

You're like a test, I can't fuck up
You're like a song in my head, like a la la la la la like a dream
Don't wake me up and if I never see the light again
Well I guess they put me underground with this smile on my head, my love
My love [9x]

"This Addiction" (2010)

Dorothy lyrics - alkaline trio

Like the flutter of your fingertips,
Like the flickering of lights,
They've got their bright ideas but we've got bigger fish to fry.

Found you out there on your doorstep,
Undressed to the nines.
From your Sunday best, black and blue velvet dress.
Your head's a mess and so is mine.

Oh Dorothy, I'm coming home,
I hope you're waiting there.
I know times have been tough on you,
It's all downhill from here.
Oh Dorothy, inside that dreadful place deep in your heart,
It's beckoning, I'm racing to your doorway Dorothy.
Dorothy.

Like the scratching sounds of insects,
Beneath the blades and soil.
We'll begin the plot to get away,
To ends as black as oil.
Now it's pounding in the ear,
Left in left field for you to find.
Outside of your perifirals vision of this never ending night.


Oh Dorothy, I'm coming home,
I hope you're waiting there.
I know times have been tough on you,
It's all downhill from here.
Oh Dorothy, inside that dreadful place deep in your heart,
It's beckoning, I'm racing to your doorway Dorothy.
Dorothy.

It's a strange world isn't it?
Such strange times to be living in.
I had a change of heart tonight,
When I watched her walk into the light.
It's a strange world isn't it?
Such strange times to be living in.
I had a change of heart tonight,
When I watched her walk into the light.

I watched her walk into the light.

Oh Dorothy, I'm coming home,
I hope you're waiting there.
I know times have been tough on you,
It's all downhill from here.
Oh Dorothy, inside that dreadful place deep in your heart,
It's beckoning, I'm racing to your doorway Dorothy.
Dorothy.

This Addiction lyrics - alkaline trio

You hit me just like heroin.
I feel you coursing through my veins.
I once tried to kick this addiction
I swear I'll never kick again, won't ever kick again, no.

This addiction.
Can't seem to live without you.
This addiction,
No going clean.
This addiction,
Go through withdrawal without you.
Sick with this addiction in me.

Well, those others were like methadone
I took to get me through the day.
Now I'm trying to find my way back home,
Staying clean along the way.
Hold out for the real thing, yeah.

This addiction.
Can't seem to live without you.
This addiction,
No going clean.
This addiction,
Go through withdrawal without you.
Sick with this addiction in me.

This addiction.
This addiction.
This addiction.
I go off the rails without you.
Sick with this addiction in me.

Dine, Dine My Darling

Don't leave me alone,
I'm waiting for this to be,
The last thing that I say.
If I tried real good,
Then I probably could get a couple more days.
But the drugs are lame,
So I'm looking for you to be,
The very last thing I see,
Before I up and fly away.
I'm counting on you to help push me through
With something good to remember on my red letter days

Don't worry,
I only feel the good things.

So let's dine, dine, dine my darling
Let's have our last supper, as us, two lovers and we'll dance real sweet and slow.
And then kiss, kiss, kiss to the last clock tick
A final exhale when I'm done and you can keep my last breath floating in your lungs.

Yeah I tried alot of things because of you,
You make me tell the truth,
You taught me to drink like a man.
You rescued my tail from between my legs,
Now if I can think it I am.
And I'm taking these words with me when I go over to the other side.
I'll be waiting on you but don't show up too soon
I'll be bored as heaven but I'll be alright.

Let's dine, dine, dine my darling
Let's have our last supper, as us, two lovers and we'll dance real sweet and slow.
And then kiss, kiss, kiss to the last clock tick
A final exhale when I'm done and you can keep my last breath floating in your lungs.
Floating in your lungs.

So let's dine, dine, dine my darling.
Let's have our last supper, as us, two lovers and we'll dance real sweet and slow.
And then kiss, kiss, kiss to the last clock tick
A final exhale when I'm done and you can keep my last breath floating in your lungs.

Lead Poisoning lyrics - alkaline trio

Choking slowly,
Broken hearted.
Don't look now,
Here's what you started.
And I swore I'd be there 'til the end,
We're bitter now but better friends.
I climbed out limbless to the ledge,
To baske in my last true regret.

Lay my heavy head here down to sleep.
Now I pray to Abraxas my soul to keep.
Lay my heavy head here down to dream.
Wake up with this lead poisoning.

Sobbing softly,
Lost and hollow.
This fever dream,
Tough pill to swallow.
I swore I'd be there 'til the end
You're better off your bitterness.
I climbed out lifeless to the edge,
I waved goodbye and lept I...

Lay my heavy head down here to sleep.
Now I pray to Abraxas my soul to keep.
Lay my heavy head here down to dream.
Awaking to the blood and sweat and screams.

Woke up here on Monday morning,
This old treat on this dark corner,
Waiting here for what tomorrow brings.
Silver lake mercury mining,
This mistake no silver lining,
Waiting for a bullet train to bring me my lead poisoning.

My lead poisoning.

Lay my heavy head down here to sleep.
Now I pray to Abraxas my soul to keep.
Lay my heavy head here down to dream.
Wake up with this lead poisoning.

Dead On The Floor lyrics - alkaline trio

Like two ships in the night,
We're colliding and sinking,
Into the black sea of our love.
We navigated past the point of logical thinking,
Lost sight of the stars up above.

Now my heart is a mess.
Murder scene in my chest,
Not a clue how you got through the door.
But I'm glad that you came,
No regret and no shame,
As I'm lying here dead on the floor.

I took a blind leap of faith,
That's now crashing and burning,
With my heart fast asleep in your bed.
I got on the ground safe
But with my insides turning,
And a picture of you in my head.

As I wandered away deep in shock and dismay,
In a daze, just repeating your name.
Well the fact of the matter is both our hearts
Shatter way too goddamn easily

When you asked me if I'd stay forever,
Guess you meant just for the week.
We felt so good together,
It was way too good to be.
When I left you there early that morning,
My darling,
I told you that I'd miss you so.
I got on that plane with my heart soaring,
But now it's falling like snow.

And like two ships in the night.
We're colliding and sinking,
Into the black sea of our love.
We navigated past the point of logical thinking,
Lost sight of the stars up above.

Now my heart is a mess.
Murder scene in my chest,
Not a clue how you got through the door.
But I'm glad that you came,
No regret and no shame,
As I'm lying here dead on the floor.

When you asked me if I'd stay forever,
Guess you meant just for the week.
We felt so good together,
It was way too good to be.
When I left you there early that morning,
My darling,
I told you that I'd miss you so,
I got on that plane with my heart soaring,
But now it's falling like snow.
Now it's falling like snow.
Now it's falling like snow.

And now it's falling like snow.

The American Scream lyrics - alkaline trio

Well they tied that yellow ribbon round the oak tree.
They've worn out all the prayer in their hearts.
All along thought they were routing for the home team,
As they're sent to the game and torn apart.

We twist this tourniquet upon the pipeline,
That he carries all the pain in the world.
As we blindly clap and cheer from the sidelines
It's clear, on a losing streak from the very start.

And that's where they found me,
In the cemetary.
A smoking gun in my hand,
Now I'm damned for the land of the free.
Sing with me,
The american scream.

They took that faded ribbon off the oak tree.
They've worn out all the hope in their hearts.
All along thought I was doing the right thing,
Now I'm lying in a pool of my blood.

And that's where she found me,
In the cemetary,
A smoking gun in my hand,
Now I'm damned for the land of the free.
Sing with me.

And that's where she found me,
In the cemetary,
A smoking gun in my hand,
Now I'm damned for the land of the free.
Sing with me,
The american scream.
The american scream.

And that's where she found me,
In the cemetary,
A smoking gun in my hand,
Now I'm damned for the land of the free.
Sing with me,
The american scream.

Off The Map lyrics - alkaline trio

I needed more wine,you needed more sleep.
We just fought, two hours and seven minutes.
Honestly, I'm surprised we made it.

I retir to my chair, I grabbed my new guitar.
But I can't make a sound, you could hear poisonous pins dropping all around.
Like rain, but I can ride the storm out.
Because I'm like the junkie for your smart mouth.

See I'm so far off the map the sun is shining,
While it's raining and I'm draped in silver lining.
And I can row, row, row my boat back to shore someday.
So are you coming with me?
Anchors aweigh.

I loosen my lips and the truth slips out.
A free ride on a fork tonge,
This twine of trust is unspun.
I could start to believe that's what you need from me.
So far from what I want for you but I'll lock it down and we'll make do.
You're right, there's only one real option,
And I'm here now so help me keep my voice down.

See I'm so far off the map the sun is shining,
While it's raining and I'm draped in silver lining.
And I can row, row, row my boat back to shore someday.
So are you coming with me?
Anchors aweigh.

Yeah I'm so far off the map the sun is shining,
While it's raining and I'm draped in silver lining.
And I can row, row, row my boat back to shore someday.
So are you coming with me?
Anchors aweigh.

Draculina lyrics - alkaline trio

Whatever happened to Wonderland?
And where'd Alice go? oh.
I took a night train with knife in hand,
And cut out to the next show back in her living hell.

I wish to dwell, I long to be,
In the blood and the guts with the birds of pray and the stinging of bees and bullets maybe.

Leaving heaven behind for good this time, the angels can keep it.
I've got a deamon in mind and she's standing behind my dark secret.
Draculina.

Whatever happened to Wonderland?
No one really knows, no.
But Draculina had her teeth sinking deep in me,
From the get to the go back in her living hell.

I wish to dwell, I long to be,
In the blood and the guts with the birds of pray and the stinging of bees and bullets maybe.

Leaving heaven behind for good this time, the angels can keep it.
I've got a deamon in mind and she's standing behind my dark secret.

Oh Draculina.
Leaving heaven behind for good this time, the Angels can keep it.
I got a devil inside that has been exorcised now I'm bleeding for Draculina.

Draculina. Draculina.
Woah, oh oh oh
Draculina. Oh Draculina.

I'm leaving heaven behind for good this time, the angels can keep it.
I've got a deamon in mind and she's standing behind my dark secret.

Draculina.
I'm leaving heaven behind for good this time, the Angels can keep it.
I got a devil inside that has been exorcised now I'm bleeding for Draculina.
Woah oh oh
Draculina. Draculina.
Woah oh oh
Draculina. Draculina.
