The Kills Echo Home

I’m flowing with the waters

I’m spinning into orbit

So won’t you come on home

And make it alright

I’m drifting in the same old boat

With a different crew

So won’t you come on home

And make it alright

Won’t you echo back

And make it fine

Maybe you’ll go out of your mind

You can lose it all if you wanna

Maybe you’ll go out of mine

It’s been so long

You can keep your own dear life

You can lose it all if you wanna

But I can’t keep you out of mine, oh no

We were dancing to a beat of our own

Flying with our speakers blown

Oh won’t you come on back

And make it alright

And if I take a turn for the worst

And I call you on the phone

Will you echo home when I call

Won’t you echo back and make it alright

Won’t you echo home and make me fine

Maybe you went out of your mind

You can lose it all if you wanna

Maybe you went out of mine

It’s been so long

You can live your own dear life

You can lose it all if you wanna

But I can’t let you out of mine, oh no

And it’s a long long long long drop

From the rocks to the pearls, we got so lost

We got so lost, we got so lost

For so long

And it’s a long long long long drop

From the rocks to the pearls, we got so lost

We got so lost, we got so lost

For so long, for so long, so long

For so long, oh

Maybe you went out of your mind

You can lose it all if you wanna

Maybe you went out of mine

It’s been so long

You can live your own dear life

And you can lose it all if you wanna

But I can’t let you out of mine, oh no

I’m flowing with the waters

I’m spinning into orbit

So won’t you come on home

And make it alright

So won’t you come on home

And make it fine

The Kills Bitter Fruit

Cut your branches at the root

That long have grown that bitter fruit

Cut your branches at the root

That only gave me bitter fruit

I was conceived in a red cage, from a wild love

I am the seed of a dead age, gone viral

Those feelings I’ve tried to shake, all my life long

But the demons I’m keeping are hard to face

When you hide them, so long

I gotta cut you at the root

I gotta save my soul from the bad in you

I gotta cut you through and through

You only ever gave me bitter fruit

Oh and it grew like a shockwave

And I was blindsided, oh oh

The fruit that your love gave

Poisoned my mind up, oh oh

I cut your branches at the root

I gotta save my soul from the things you do

I cut your branches through and through

But still I only taste that bitter fruit

Down to the bone

All my love was cut in a single blow

Gone, and I know

All my love was cut in the seed I sowed

I could pray, but can’t you see

The kind of things I pray for are cursing me

I could pray, but can’t you see

The kind of things I pray for

The kind of things I need

I cut your branches at the root

That only ever gave me bitter fruit

I cut your branches through and through

But still I only taste that bitter fruit

I could pray, but can’t you see

The kind of things I pray for are cursing me

I could pray, but can’t you see

The kind of things I pray for

The kind of things I need

Cut your branches at the root

That long have grown that bitter fruit

Cut your branches at the root

That only gave me bitter fruit

Cut your branches at the root

That long have grown that bitter fruit

Cut your branches at the root

That only gave me bitter fruit

You knock on her door

She don’t recognize your voice no more

So she got on an aeroplane

Na na na na na so long after

Strip down from the fever

Laid down in a hotel bed

Wouldn’t take no phone calls at all

Didn’t want no more voices in her head

And that’s the way that you feel

And that’s the way that you feel

And that’s the way that you feel honey know

That’s the way that you feel

In the blue part of the evening

Sometimes its hard

She thinks she hears you coming

But she’s stuck against the wall

Oh she wants what she wants

So she do what she do

But now she looks at you

She covers one eye ’cause she can see into your mind

She no longer want to

And that’s the way that you feel

And that’s the way that you feel

And that’s the way that you feel honey know

Got six troubles, on my back

Like six little milk teeth, all gone bad

Won’t move over, won’t get gone

Won’t move over

Fried my little brains

Pull out my little milk teeth, pull good

Fried my little brains

The Kills Future Starts Slow

You can holler, you can wail

You can swing, you can flail

You can thump like a broken sail

But I’ll never give you up

If I ever give you up my heart will surely fail

And after all God can keep my soul

England have my bones

But don’t ever give me up

I could never get back up when the future starts so slow

No longing for the moonlight

No longing for the sun

No longer will I curse the bad I’ve done

If there’s a time when your feelings gone, I wanna feel it

You can holler, you can wail

You can blow what’s left of my right mind

You can swing, you can flail

You can blow what’s left of my right mind

(I don’t mind)

There’s a time for the second best

And there’s a time when the feeling’s gone

But it’s hard to be hard I guess

When you’re shaking like a dog

You can holler, you can wail

You can blow what’s left of my right mind

You can swing, you can flail

You can blow what’s left of my right mind

You can holler, you can wail

You can blow what’s left of my right mind

You can swing, you can flail

You can blow what’s left of my right mind

(I don’t mind)

You can blow what’s left of my right mind

You can blow what’s left of my right mind

You can holler, you can wail

You can blow what’s left of my right mind
