The Pretty Reckles Light Me Up

Does what I’m wearing seem to shock you?

Well, that’s okay

‘Cause what I’m thinking about you

Is not okay

I’ve got it on my mind to change my ways

But I don’t think I can be anything other than me

No, I don’t think I can be anything other than me

Do you have a light? Can you make me feel alright?

There’s plenty of white to go around

Do you think it’s right when you hit me to the ground?

Well, light me up when I’m down

Light me up when I’m down

Does what I’m saying seem to haunt you?

Well, that’s okay

‘Cause what I’m saying about you

Is not okay

I’ve got it on my mind to change my ways

But I don’t think I can be anything other than me

No, I don’t think I can be anything other than me

Do you have a light? Can you make me feel alright?

There’s plenty of white to go around

Do you think it’s right when you hit me to the ground?

Well, light me up when I’m down

Just light me up when I’m down

Just light me up when I’m down

Light me up when I’m down

Does what I’m taking seem to bother you?

Well, that’s okay

‘Cause I can take it all without you

And I’m okay

I’ve got it on my mind to change my ways

But I don’t think I can be anything other than me

No, I don’t think I can be anything other than me

Do you have a light? Can you make me feel alright?

There’s plenty of white to go around

Do you think it’s right when you hit me to the ground?

Well, light me up when I’m down

Just light me up when I’m down

Light me up when I’m down

Light me up when I’m down

The Pretty Reckles Why’d You Bring A Shotgun To The Party

Alone, afraid, the kid your mother made

Sitting in your room drooling like a loser with all this doom

You think, then you start to drink

Then you get so paranoid with all the drugs they fill you with

Then boom

Does it make you feel like a man?

Boom

It’s not the size we understand,

Boom

You think you’re gonna get with me

You’re never gonna get with me

You’re never gonna dance with me

I admit, I feel like you, like shit

But I don’t go ’round and take it out on everyone about it

We’re all part of the system

You wanna start a war?

You think that anyone would listen?

Why’d you bring a shotgun to the party?

Why’d you bring a shotgun to the party?

Everybody’s got one, there’s nothing new about it

Wanna make a statement? You should’ve come without it

You turn the TV on, watch it if you dare

You see a politician and you start to pull your hair

But it’s all two dimension see there’s really nothing there

You wanna tell them what you think you think they fuckin’ care

And boom

Do you think they hear you now?

And boom

Making noises in the crowd, all in the way that you’re using

You love it so much then why do you abuse it?

Why’d you bring a shotgun to the party?

Why’d you bring a shotgun to the party?

Everybody’s got one, there’s nothing new about it

Wanna make a statement? You should’ve come without it

We’re all part of the system

Load ’em up shoot ’em down

But you keep fucking missin’

We’re all part of the system

Load ’em up shoot ’em down

But you keep fucking missing

Alone afraid you wanna make them pay that’s…

Why’d you bring a shotgun to the party?

Why’d you bring a shotgun to the party?

Wanna get the girl? Then you should’ve come without it

Why’d you bring a shotgun to the party?

Why’d you bring a shotgun to the party?

Why’d you bring a shotgun to the party?

Why’d you bring a shotgun to the party?

The Pretty Reckles Burn

Here comes the darkness

It’s eating on my soul

Now that the spark has

Run out of control

This fire is raging

I can’t find the door

I just want to die here

But you wanted more

You want me to burn

Want me to burn

Want me to hurt

And maybe I will finally learn

Here comes the darkness

It’s eating on my brain

Now that the light has

Driven me insane

This fire is blazing

And I’m still inside

I just want to die here

You won’t let me out alive

You want me to burn

Want me to burn

Want me to hurt

And maybe I will finally learn

The Pretty Reckles Since You’re Gone

Since you hide, since you steal

Since you hate everything I feel

Since you cheat, since you lie

Since you don’t wanna try things I wanna try

Since you been gone

My life has moved along quite nicely actually

I’ve got a lot more friends and I don’t have to pretend

Since you’re gone, since you’re gone

Since you’re not what I want

You can take everything I’ve got

Take a seat, take the drive

If I say I love you, I am a liar

Since you been gone

My life has moved along quite nicely actually

Meet my lover Jen and I don’t have to pretend

Since you’re gone, since you’re gone

I’ve been looking for a new direction, anyway

I’ve been looking for my own protection to save

Now that you’re gone my life has moved along

Now that you’re gone my life has moved along

Now that you’re gone my life has moved along

Now that you’re gone

Since you hide, since you steal

Since you hate everything I feel

Since you cheat, since you lie

Since you don’t wanna try things I wanna try

Since you been gone

My life has moved along quite nicely actually

Quite nicely actually, quite nicely actually

Quite nicely actually, quite nicely actually

Quite nicely actually, thanks for asking

Quite nicely

The Pretty Reckles Dear Sister

Dear sister, can you help me lie?

I’ve told the truth so many years

No one seems to want to hear that

I’m not someone else inside

I’ve been along this lonely road

Looks like I’m not coming home

But I don’t mind

Please don’t cry

The Pretty Reckles The Walls Are Closing In / Hangman

[The Walls Are Closing In]

Get your shit together

There’s no light

Mama, I can’t see at all

There’s no one left to break this fall

Mama, there’s no one at all

[Hangman]

[Latin intro]

Semi tabellio prima

Retracto quemadmodum callum

Odi cimussiato bora

Victum calefia doleo

Mia esto nescienta

Lio rumen appello mama

Effascinatio crea

Tichius nova lumen patior

Esto mi doleo solor

Vivax olor ma infecta

Estar in mia altaria

Estur inomina montis

[English translation:

I first started to decompose

But I regained control I have thick skin

I hate the rope it’s burning my skin

The food is burning my throat

I know it’s ignorance

But I reject it, I can’t keep it in my stomach mama

The human body fascinates me

The mark of the new light is devastating

And I know the pain is comforting me

Its intensity and smell disturbed me

He died by sacrifice

He died on the hill in a baneful way]

I don’t know, won’t get out alive, yeah

I think I am gonna spend my last night here

I think I can finally see clear

When they come to hang you

Stand straight

Brace your neck

Be stronger

When they come to hang you

And you think you lost control

Don’t take your soul

[Latin post-chorus]

Sono o no ma infecta

Estar in mia altaria

Estur inonima montis

[English translation:

The noise of the wound disturbs me

He died by sacrifice

He died on the hill in a baneful way]

I don’t know, won’t get out alive, yeah

Time flies

By the rank of years

Humans die

By the hand of fear

When they come to hang you

Stand straight

Brace your neck

Be stronger

When they come to hang you

And you think you lost control

Don’t take your soul

In the time of the light

Before humans had the sight

Spent my life living blind

With a picture in my mind

A vision of the sun

And now my life is done

As I wait for the light to come

I will take not a thing

For what would I bring

That won’t decompose

As my body is disposed

And the earth weighs a ton

And now my life is done

As I wait for the light to come… to come

When they come to hang you

Stand straight

Brace your neck

Be stronger

When they come to hang you

And you think you’ve lost control

Don’t take your…

And you think you’ve lost control

Don’t take your soul
