Band Of Skulls Hometowns

In hometowns, suburban and transient

Romances, just like yours, are bound again,

To all you lovers, gather around you,

To see what you have become

No acting, while you’re here, a lonely road

It’s just kids having, more kids for

Fear of being alone

To all you lovers, gather around you,

To see what you have become

I was looking for the one

But I guess you’ll do

No acting, while you’re here, a lonely road

It’s just kids having, more kids for

Fear of being alone

To all you lovers, gather around you,

To see what you have become

I was looking for the one

But I guess you’ll do

In hometowns, suburban and transient

Romances, just like yours happen again.

Band Of Skulls Hollywood Bowl

Hey! [x2]

Took my baby to the Hollywood Bowl

I was wasted, she was out of control

So I said, “Well I don’t mind”

And she’s like, “I don’t know”

I took my baby to the Hollywood Bowl

Hey! [x2]

I found my baby waiting after the show

He was wasted and he wouldn’t let go

And I said, “You can have my kisses but

get your hands off of my dough”

I found my baby waiting after the show

Hey!

Oh, oh, oh

Oh, oh, oh

Oh, oh, oh

Because you sold your soul at the Hollywood Bowl

Band Of Skulls Death By Diamonds And Pearls

She grew up in a nice neighbourhood

But it didn’t do her no good

Cause she’s just a sum of her influence

Hell, and I can’t tell you the difference

By the cracked windscreen on her car

Something is telling you don’t you know how lucky you are

You’re just like the rest of those girls

They’re all death by diamonds and

Death by diamonds and

Death by diamonds and

Death by diamonds and pearls

Death by diamonds and pearls

You got your figure all nice

But the heart stays colder than ice

You got 25 grand on the bubble

And you’re the one telling me that you don’t think you’re in trouble

I might be a fan of your insolence

But that don’t make you the innocent

You’re just like the rest of those girls

They’re all death by diamonds and

Death by diamonds and

Death by diamonds and

Death by diamonds and pearls

Band Of Skulls Back Of Beyond

I rock around everybody else outta place

Be bop a lula the big bad walls on the case

I tend to benefit all at once all the time

The nitty gritty get the sweetest taste of venom

I hear the sound of a doubling up stereo

See you shaking from the tic and the tac and the toe

I trade it up to the fix and flex and you’re gone

Things are gonna get bloody from now on

I’ve seen the good go bad

I’ve seen the right go wrong

From the middle of the city

To the back of beyond

And if you wanna sing

Well I got a song

From the middle of the city

To the back of beyond

I rocked up like adrenalin rococo

Pass the competition there’s a line for the show

Pull yourself together for goodness sake

From the twister tone to the shamrock shake

Panorama like a passenger on a roll

Pop my collar and I watch ’em go baby go

I’m twice the speed of sound when I whip up a storm

A stitch in time till the break of dawn

I’ve seen the good go bad

I’ve seen the right go wrong

From the middle of the city

To the back of beyond

And if you wanna sing

Well I got a song

From the middle of the city

To the back of beyond

I’ve seen it all get real

I’ve seen it come undone

From the middle of the city

To the back of beyond

And if you want stop me

You’ve gotta get it on

From the middle of the city

To the back of beyond

Yeah!

[?]

I’ve seen the good go bad

To the back of beyond

I’ve seen it all get real

Yeah!

Band Of Skulls Bruises

Take this life and this form

One and all

Wish that I could give you more

Gonna have to break the law

I’ve got more to give

Than I first thought to give

We’ll have to make a pact

Or something like that

Something good

A little trouble in your neighbourhood

Or understanding that you’re understood

Oh I kinda wish you were

Give yourself to the world, baby girl

Spread your wings and uncurl

To the world

You’ve got more to give

Than you first thought to give

We’ll have to make a pact

Or something like that

Or something like that

Something good

A little trouble in your neighbourhood

Or understanding that you’re understood

Oh I kinda wish you were

Something real

Another feeling that you never feel

Another reason that you wanna be alive

Just to watch the bruises heal

Something good

A little trouble in your neighbourhood

Or understanding that you’re understood

Oh I kinda wish you were

Something real

Another feeling that you never feel

Another reason that you wanna be alive

Just to watch the bruises heal

Band Of Skulls Get Yourself Together

Wake before the dawn

You will lie, but you’re older

Neither right or wrong

Who is that in the mirror?

Ask my broken heart

For the damage

I just need your love

To make me feel brand new

Brand new, brand new

Come on, get yourself together

Hurry up, babe

Now or never

‘Cause what we’ve got won’t

Last forever

So come on, get yourself together

Struggle to keep up

In your head, from the water

We’re letting down to luck

Or a thing, could it top you?

Ask my broken heart

For the damage

I just need your love

To make me feel brand new

Brand new, brand new

Come on, get yourself together

Hurry up, babe

Now or never

‘Cause what we’ve got won’t

Last forever

So come on, get yourself together

Come on, get yourself together

Hurry up, babe

Now or never

‘Cause what we’ve got won’t

Last forever

So come on, get yourself together

Wake before the dawn

You will lie, but you’re older

Band Of Skulls Erounds

Watch out…

Something’s not right…

Something’s here through the day…

And still here at night…

And it doesn’t matter if you go outside or stay inside your room

It’s always there…

Always everywhere…

You hear singin’

Ah…

Don’t move…

There’s somebody else in the room…

I see flashes of gold and silver and black…

Lit by a silvery moon…

And it doesn’t matter if you’re rich or poor, you’ve seen it all before…

It’s always there…

Always everywhere…

You hear singin’

Ah

Singin’

Ah

All the memories we’ve lost

To the times when you pay the cost

Will we all be better now

If we keep on singing loud?

Ah

Singin’

Ah

Singin’

Ah

Singin’

Ticking time bomb is ticking away.

You can’t stay home or go away.

Ticking time bomb is ticking away.

Band Of Skulls Close To Nowhere

Though I long to,

Though I try to,

Figure it out I’m told,

There’s no way of knowing.

Still I long to,

Long to know.

Hold on through it,

Pray I’ll fool it,

Loosing it all I’m told,

At the rate I’m going.

Never learning,

Never close.

I will prove it,

Hold on to it,

Give it my heart and soul,

With the chance I’ll loose it.

When I find you,

I will know.

Next to nothing,

Far from over,

Close to nowhere.
