Dead! Enemy

Show me the way you break, girl

Show me the way you f-f-f-fight

You’re a cavalier for all those lost at sea

And I’m renegade ship that passes in the night

All hands on deck, this is not a drill

Well you told me that there’s more underneath,

So I gonna sink this ship, watch you fall to your knees

Is it worth it?

When the hands on the clock finally strike out

Are you gonna have the stories of us to write about

There’s a fire under bow and we’re going down

Would it kill to have some empathy with every word you said to me

You’re a liar and a con, and, oh, you’re a thief

Fight back all the memories, you’re nothing but an enemy

My fist against a wall, now darling

Your morals against mine

Well, I can only take the high ground, sugar

If I could waste your time

It’s been a long time coming, but it’s time that you paid

Your debts, off, honey, for the way that you played

Long time coming, but it’s time that you paid

Your debts, off, honey, for the way, the way

There’s a fire under bow and we’re going down

Would it kill to have some empathy with every word you said to me

You’re a liar and a con, and, oh, you’re a thief

Fight back all the memories, you’re nothing but an enemy

There’s a fire under bow and we’re going down

Da da da da, da dadadada

There’s a fire under bow and we’re going down

Da da da da, da dadadada

With that look in her eye and a knife in her hand

It’s enough to make us want to swim back to land

The captain jump ship, the bow is on fire

The bow is on fire, the bow is on fire!

There’s a fire under bow and we’re going down

Would it kill to have some empathy with every word you said to me

You’re a liar and a con, and, oh, you’re a thief

Fight back all the memories, you’re nothing but an enemy

There’s a fire under bow and we’re going down

Da da da da, da dadadada

There’s a fire under bow and we’re going down

Da da da da, da dadadada

There’s a fire under bow and we’re going down

Da da da da, da dadadada

There’s a fire, there’s a fire, there’s a fire, there’s a fire

There’s a f-f-f-fire under bow

Dead! Before They Take You

Raised up at the crack of dawn

Down to copy strides of a lucky one

Went down into the morning sun

Continued our life on the run

And we ride into the sunset and burn our eyes

Sugar love, it’s no surprise

That I fell so hard

When you emptied your six-shooter in my heart

We give and take chances, we should know better

We’re getting beaten down by the dark and the weather

As a thousand eyes get closer still

I’ll die before I let them touch you, you know I will

Oh I will, girl you know I will

Girl you know, girl you know

Home is a place that I rarely know

And I know that I swore I’d never go

But the burden of the city shines on me (Hey! Hey! Hey!)

How could I have guessed what would become of all

The things that I have done, these last few years

Have moved so fast for me (Hey! Hey! Hey!)

Another night underneath these moonlit stars

A sip of whiskey is sure to help pass the time

We spend talking about our hometowns

And the people we used to be

So tell me what we gain from living like this

It doesn’t take a wordsmith to fucking write this

I will always be hopeful to fall into

The pages aren’t

What I made, what I made

What I made, what I made

Home is a place that I rarely know

And I know that I swore I’d never go

The burden of the city shines on me (Hey! Hey! Hey!)

How could I have guessed what would become of all

The things that I have done, these last few years

Have moved so fast for me (Hey! Hey! Hey!)

A drink for two in the saloon

Our eyes meet from across the room

And he catches us with his stare

He catches us with his stare

He walks across the floor

Our eyes divert to the door

And we run as fast as our feet will take us

We’ll run into the street

With that sweaty office man

Girl, I’ll take this shot for you, oh

Because girl, I’ll take this shot for you

Girl, I’ll take this shot for you

Girl, I’ll take this shot

Girl, I’ll take this shot

(Hey! Hey! Hey!)

‘Cause home is a place that I rarely know

And I know that I swore I’d never go

But the burden of the city shines on me (Hey! Hey! Hey!)

How could I have guessed what would become of all

The things that I have done, these last few years

Have moved so fast for me (Hey! Hey! Hey!)

They’re never gonna catch us now

But now we’re gonna starve until we’re fucking dead

And after all that we’ve been through

I’ll still take this shot for you

I’ll always be there

This ain’t how it ends

Dead! Skin

I’ll stay for one more then I should get home

But the taste of her lips are intoxicating

See I’m not the man that you think you see

But your breath on my neck is so convincing

So I’ll burn this night and I’ll leave you charred

Leave here battered, broken and scarred

One hand on the clock and one hand on your hip

Both hands still turn and they touch and they tick

She said she’s fine, tell her I’m a mess

I’m conscious to the fact I’m the best that she’ll get

I’m leaving this place alone tonight

Argue with myself what’s wrong and right

I’ll make a fool for myself and I’m a fool for you

Not a single word I’ve said has been true

Your presence in my mind is now wearing thin

It’s getting cold out here let me wear your skin

Is this how you’ll go out, is this how they’ll remember you?

Before my lights go out, I will learn to forget you

I’ll learn to forget you

Well I’ve acquired a taste for your bitter side

There’s no space for you in my mind

Your eyes are cold and your words don’t mean

Anything of value to me

I’m a rogue, I’m a boy, I’m a lifeless thing

My veins pump blood that I can’t bleed

This is not the place I’m supposed to be

Here’s to tonight, here’s to running free

Is this how you’ll go out, is this how they’ll remember you?

Before my lights go out, I will learn to forget you

I’ll learn to forget you

Is this how you’ll go out?
