Alexisonfire Accidents

I’m not sure what’s worse

The waiting or the waiting room

“You’re next sir” becomes a cruel taunt to you

Recycled air, the smell of sleep and disinfectant

Your God is a two door elevator

Do they even cure you? (Cut me open drug me)

Or is it just to humor us before we die (Repair all my defects)

If only we could heal ourselves (Whoa whoa whoa…)

We wouldn’t need to be hooked up to these machines (Whoa whoa whoa…)

Whoa whoa whoa…

Let’s redefine [6x]

What it means to heal

Do they even cure you? (Cut me open drug me)

Or is it just to humor us before we die (Repair all my defects)

If only we could heal ourselves (Whoa whoa whoa…)

We wouldn’t need to be hooked up to these machines (Whoa whoa whoa…)

Whoa whoa whoa…

Alexisonfire Adelleda

This is really only all we have:

(Bury all of me)

Daytime. Twilight. Pitch black. Night light.

(Before I have a chance)

Coldest eyes, and the softest touch.

(To open my eyes and see you laughing.)

Daytime. Twilight. Pitch black. Night light.

These typed letters.

(Is this all we have?)

Beneath me.

(Or is this all just twilight beyond the skyline)

Fuck with these buttons and knobs long enough

(Blinding me)

And maybe things will… turn out fine.

Hide behind your crystal screen

And blow kisses at me.

(Remember what we said wouldn’t happen?)

Go.

Write your name on my chest in kerosene.

Spark a match, and you won’t be cold again.

This is really only all we have:

Daytime. Twilight. Pitch black. Night light.

Coldest eyes.

You had the coldest eyes, and the softest touch.

Daytime. Twilight. Pitch black.

Light!

Gag and… destroy me.

Gag and… destroy me.

(Sorry I didn’t hear you)

I have a

(I was busy dying in the corner)

Collection of thunder that I stole

(Those three words)

I stole. That I stole.

(Destroyed every inch of me yet you keep…)

From your windowsill.

(…Speaking)

Stole… right through your windowsill.

Alexisonfire Drunks, Lovers, Sinners And Saints

[George:] Alright!

[Wade:] This is from our hearts.

Sincerity over simple chords.

We made some mistakes

We made some mistakes

But it’s a long time coming when you’re giving it everything.

[2x]

[George:] Alright!

This is from our hearts

And it’s been right from the start

There’s fire in my guts you just can’t put out

Alright!

This is from our hearts (From our hearts)

And there is always going to be a part

Of this crowd who don’t understand

Oh, and I feel the same

I won’t ever change

Not a jaded hair upon my head

Are you pretending? (That you care)

Are you even listening?

Are you pretending? (That you understand)

Are you even?

[George:] Suits to the left

Squares to the right

Cause my heart – my heart is full

And we ride to fight.

[4x]

We ride to fight.

Are you pretending? (That you care)

Are you even listening?

Are you pretending? (That you understand)

Are you even listening?

Are you pretending?

Are you, are you?

Are you even listening?

Are you pretending that your heart’s in the right place?

Are you pretending?

Are you even listening?

Are you pretending?

Are you even?

There’s no need to waste my time

Spending your life jumping from sinking ship to sinking ship

Well I think I’d rather drown

I know I’d rather drown

Oh, and I feel the same

I won’t ever change

Not a jaded hair upon my head

Alexisonfire My God Is A Reasonable Man

I don’t care, I won’t preach it

My god’s a reasonable man

You preach the facts of sacred prayers

But your a terrorist of bigotry

Fueled by text that was written

In dead languages and different times

I don’t care, I won’t preach it

My god’s a reasonable man

I don’t care, I won’t preach it

My god’s a reasonable man

I don’t care, I won’t preach it

My god’s a reasonable man

And your justice, and your lifestyle

My god’s a reasonable man

And your faith doesn’t speak for us all

‘Cause my god’s a reasonable man

It’s time to separate faith and politics

It’s time to realize that in ten-year’s time

This song will be all that’s left of me

And this song won’t need to be sung

Your problem is that

You think it’s no use

And swimming in another christian world

Now you have the balls so show the power

So why’s the shit back in human rights?

Get what? get back!

My god’s a reasonable man

Get what? get back!

My god’s a reasonable man

Our hands again

They will get sick

All with your politics

By mixing God

This city war, you take all of your

Convictions to the morgue

Get what? get back!

Get what? get back!

My god’s a reasonable man

Get what? get back!

My god’s a reasonable man

Alexisonfire Burial

When will this winter end?

The snow’s been falling for months

The town all dressed in white

And my skin is burning from the wind

The cold sun in disguise

An assault from the morning light

My burial, I can’t succeed

Frozen and paralyzed

Oh winter [x8]

Oh no

ooooooooh [x6]

Oh winter [x8]

ooooooooh [x5]

Alexisonfire Charlie Sheen Vs. Henry Rollins

There’s four cruisers flashing in my rear view,

And they’re not gonna take me out. I’d watch it. What’d you do now?

There’s four cruisers weighing on my conscience.

There is one thing for sure, this is not a fucking love song.

My fear is gone, and still I don’t know why,

I waited for so long to let you know. (I’m not goin’ back!)

Now this is all your fault and there’s no one left to blame.

Did you think we’d make it out? Did you know?

Do you know?

Oh, yeah!

Somewhere out there, there’s a man on the ground who ain’t livin’ anymore.

And his name is written on my knuckles. Take me. Take my fuckin’ burden.

There’s four cruisers flashing in my rear view,

They’re never gonna take me out. I’d watch it. What’d you do?

In each cruiser is a man with his gun,

And his fancy little bullets with my name on ’em.

My fear is gone, and still I don’t know why,

I waited for so long to let you know. (I’m not goin’ back!)

Now this was all your fault and there’s no one left to blame.

Did you even think this out? Did you know?

Hey hey, ho ho!

Wild chase to the open road.

Hey hey, ho ho!

This car is too fuckin’ slow.

I don’t know where I’m going but I’m not slowing down.

And I’ll die before I stop this fuckin’ car.

Street lights and white lines.

This is all I have left. This is all I have!

Flashing lights and racing hearts.

Will you ever just slow down?

How did we end up here?

And all those sirens are getting louder.

Flashing lights and racing hearts.

I don’t think we’re gonna make it out.

This won’t end well. (…make it out…)

This won’t end well.

Alexisonfire Mailbox Arson

Your mail’s not safe in this town. [4x]

[George:] I strike a red bird on your face

And pour the kerosene in your mouth

I watch the match fall down your throat

I burn all your precious bowels

I watch the smoke pour from every crack

And breathe in your secret lives

All your bills, pay and welfare cheques

But I don’t think I can stay for long

There’s lots more mail that’s not yet ash

Your mail’s not safe in this town. [3x]

Well, I’m taking this all back.

[Dallas:] I watch the smoke start to rise

One hundred homes, one hundred fires.

Everything you own now burns away.

This town is no longer mine.

It’s fucked with me for the last time.

How I wish that I could see your face..

[George:] When the sky is streaked with plumes

Know that it’s my signature

Upon this wretched fucking city.

Mailbox arson,

My sweet revenge.

Mailbox arson,

My sweet revenge.

[Dallas:] I’ll strike a match and burn away –

Every tie that binds me to this place

[4x]

[George:] When the smoke clears,

You can consider us even.

Your mail’s not safe in this town. [3x]

Well, I’m taking this all back.

[Dallas:] I watch the smoke start to rise

One hundred homes, one hundred fires.

Everything you own now burns away.

This town is no longer mine.

It’s fucked with me for the last time.

How I wish that I could see your face..

Alexisonfire Side Walk When She Walks

Dressed to kill, you look so right

I am drunk with lust tonight

Your wounds are opening wide

And they might be just my size

Now I’m afraid of open water

But I often bathe in sin

Let’s be honest, you know you shouldn’t bother

‘Cuz with me, it’s impossible to win

Dressed to kill, you look so right

I am drunk with lust tonight

Your wounds are opening wide

And they might be just…

There was always

Warmth between us

There was always

Warmth between us

Dressed to kill, you look so right

I am drunk with lust tonight

Your wounds are opening wide

And they might be just my size

Just my size, just my size

Just my size, just my size

Just my size, just my size

Just my size, just my size

Just my size.

Alexisonfire Old Crows

Old crows ride in the mouth of the beast

Sleep beneath its tongue, cradled by its teeth

We roam from shore to shore

From the open sky to the ocean floor

The more we move the less we are ourselves

And when we finally stop, we’ve changed to something else

As rapid as a river flows

As frigid as the cold wind can blow

As devious as the devil’s grin

Our blood is cold and we’ve shed our skin

Now, we are not the kids we used to be

Stop wishing for yesterday

We are not the kids we used to be

Stop wishing for yesterday

we are not the kids we used to be

Ooooh oh oh

We are not the kids we used to be

Stop wishing for yesterday

The crows are calling – seems the end is near

They’re spelling out their names, yet we have no fear

Oh, the damage a man can do

When ambition takes over his search for the truth

Sometimes life just gets the best of us

Some things in life will get the best of us

Now, we are not the kids we used to be

Stop wishing for yesterday

We are not the kids we used to be

Stop wishing for yesterday

We are not the kids we used to be

Ooooh oh oh (Stop wishing for yesterday)

We are not the kids we used to be

Stop wishing for yesterday

Every skyline beats in my chest

Somewhere between love and sadness

This is our fate, this is our test

We ride in the mouth of madness

As rapid as a river flows

As frigid as the cold wind can blow

As devious as the devil’s grin

Our blood is cold and we’ve shed our skin

Now, we are not the kids we used to be

Stop wishing for yesterday

We are not the kids we used to be

Stop wishing for yesterday

We are not the kids we used to be

Ooooh oh oh (Stop wishing for yesterday)

We are not the kids we used to be

Stop wishing for yesterday

Wishing for yesterday

Wishing for yesterday

Alexisonfire Thrones

I don’t need a generation of burning on the ledge,

Don’t need your ancient wisdom,

Two things I’ll live without.

[x2]

Relax,

(As children rest)

Patience people,

There’s no need to react so desperately tonight.

(You don’t need to know the things I know)

In fact,

(as children rest)

All of you will be sleeping with honesty intact,

(Our innocence intact)

So just give up tonight.

(If I knew then what I know now, I’d stay six years old)

If you lost everything in a moment, would you notice?

Could you rebuild something so hopeless?

Are you hopeless?

And when you wake alone, with no one left to hold,

You wont need to know all the things I know.

Paradise in every swimming pool,

Paradise in every playground slide,

Paradise, fresh baked in a cookie jar.

If I were you, I would defend my innocence visually.

I would fight all that tried to rob me of that.

Because there’s some things you just don’t need to know.

Tragedy in the dentist’s office,

Tragedy in every skinned knee,

Tragedy spilled all over the kitchen floor.

I don’t need a generation of burning on the ledge,

Don’t need your ancient wisdom,

Two things I’ll live without.

[x2]

When you awake alone, with no one left to hold,

You won’t need to know all the things I know,

You won’t need to know all the things I know,

You won’t need to know all the things I know.

I don’t need a generation of burning on the ledge,

Don’t need your ancient wisdom,

Two things I’ll live without.

[x2]
