Goodbye Forever
Take your wings outside, you can't fly in here.
Besides, a purple sky is better soaring for you my angel.
You're angel, you little devil.
As for me I'll stay inside I'll be just fine and I'll watch from the window.

Cannot categorize the nature of this sickness.
A miracle that you're alive, stuck to the roof of my mouth with a staple.
Remember last april when we saw u.s. maple?
Somehow the singer showed the fireside exactly how I feel.

And we say goodbye and go underground, or up towards the sky
Up in smoke burnt down to size.
At least we're still friends, at least we're still alive

Take your wings outside, no use for them in here.
Bad luck to open inside, work like umbrellas, like a broken mirror.
It's getting clearer, the end is closer than ever before
And you'll want nothing more
When your head hits the floor and you're lost in the darkness
And we say goodbye and go underground, or up towards the sky
Up in smoke burnt down to size.
At least we're still friends, at least we're still alive

And we say goodbye and go underground, or up towards the sky
Up in smoke burnt down to size.
At least we're still friends, at least we're still aliveback to top
This Is Getting over You
Today I woke up, younger than I've been in years.
Not concerned with what's outside and peers,
I don't have any.
No one is my equal because I'm the king of rain.
Controlling with my mood swings, threw a thunderstorm your way
Drowning girls is a game I play.

Today I woke up, more awake than I have felt in years.
Not concerned with anything, no tears,
I'm done with that shit.
No one is your equal because you're the queen of pain.
Controlling with my moods, I'm staring at my shoes while running away
Drowning myself is a game I play.
Drown myself away
Drown myself away
Goodbye

And this is getting over you
And this is getting over you
This is getting over youback to top
Bleeder
You came to me like a dream
The kind that always leaves,
Just as the best part starts
It ends so abruptly.
And leaves you stunned and naked in your bedroom all alone.
It's kinda funny how something so soothing
Gets interrupted by the ring of a telephone.

And you broke me like the cigarette that I busted on the day I quit
But now that I've been drinking I'm outta smokes and I wish that I had it.
Woke up to my daily headache and the realization that you are gone.
Oh my sweet darling happiness you've been away from me all along.

One thing that I've never said-
I'm truly happy in my heart and in my head.
A lonely liver suspended in liquid.

You came to me like a dream
The kind that always leaves,
Just as the best part starts
It ends so abruptly.
And leaves you stunned and naked in your bedroom all alone.
It's kinda funny how something so soothing
Gets interrupted by the ring of a telephone.

One thing that I've never said-
I'm truly happy in my heart and in my head.
A lonely liver suspended in liquid.
It's one thing that I never did was smile
Missing a case - lacking a lid.
My heart bleeds for what you never did

You never did

For what you never did

Never did

For what you never did

Never did, never did, never did

You never did, you never did

It's one thing that I've never said-
I'm truly happy in my heart and in my head.
A lonely liver suspended in liquid.
It's one thing that I never did was smile
Missing a case - lacking a lid
My heart bled for what you never did until nowback to top
I Lied My Face Off
Well, it's not fair, it's not even close.
You tied me down,
Where I'm forced to watch as you poke holes in every part of me
Containing something secretly.
Something sacred to me.
I lied my face off when I said that I would be okay,
It's never fine when you go away.
These cuts run deep, these scars are permanent, and always on display.
This makes things difficult for me.

It's not fair, it's not even close.
You fed me the sun,
Burned me up inside and watched me choke on everything we did.
On everything we lived.
Let's see if I can live again.
I lied my face off when I said that I would be okay,
It's never fine when you go away.
These cuts run deep, these scars are permanent, and always on display.
This makes things difficult for me.

Head like an empty, sterile room.
Somehow I made a mess.
Like watching newborn babies crack from work-related stress.

Head like an empty sterile room.

Somehow I made a mess.

Like watching newborn babies crack from work-related stress.
I'm bad luck, can't fuck got no reflection today.
Maybe I'll stay down next time I get hit by a train.

By a train
I lied my face off when I said that I would be okay,
It's never fine when you go away.back to top
My Friend Peter
I don't care who you've been sleeping with these days
Youre outta my hair it's growing just above my smiling face that I wear
Every night I drink myself to sleep
Not thinking about you
Not thinking about anything at all

I don't care who you've been dining with these days
Its more than fair much rather be drinking anyways
With my friend peter
Who lives so fucking far away
Yet not as far as you
Even though you live right down my fucking street

And I'm tired of sleeping with myself
I'm tired, all these drinks and drugs no longer help
Im tired of lying about not thinking of you
Maybe my friend peter can tell me what to do

I don't care who you've been kissing on these days
It's out of my hands and in my mouth with such a pleasent taste I need a beer
To wash it all away without a trace
And then I'll drink 23 more
To wipe this stupid smile off my fucking face

I'm tired of sleeping with myself
I'm tired, all those drinks and drugs no longer help
Im tired of lying about not thinking of you
Maybe my friend peter can tell me what to doback to top
Snake Oil Tanker
This time you've dug yourself an anchor too heavy to move ahead with
Resembling a faker charming snake oil tankers,
Don't let them strike you down
I know that you wish I was dead,
I know cuz you told me last weekend,
And christmas has never felt colder, I've never felt colder
This time you've dug yourself an anchor too heavy to move ahead with
Resembling a faker charming snake oil tankers,
Don't let them strike you down
I know that you wish I was dead,
I know cuz you told me last weekend..
And christmas has never felt colder,
I haven't felt colder sinceback to top
Southern Rock
I cant believe my hearts still pounding
I can't believe how close I came
And meanwhile heavens falling
The fallen angels flown away
And that'll be me someday.
With stolen wings make evil ways,
Straight south with the keys to the pearly gates

Hard to believe my heart stopped pounding
Hard to believe I played this game,
My worst nightmares became real
I got so scared that I forgot my name
And that'll be me someday.
With stolen wings and evil ways,
Straight south with the keys to the pearly gatesback to top
Cooking Wine
Sorry I'm late, I was out spoiling my liver, I couldn't wait..
The sun was up for far too long today,
And I cant see straight but the two of you look awfully pretty..
And I couldn't wait, been awake for far too long today...
And is it strong enough, to burn away the cooking wine?
And I'm just tired enough,
If I closed my eyes ill sleep for days ill sleep for days...
Sorry I'm late, I was out spoiling my liver, I couldnt wait..
The sun was up for far too long today,
And I cant see straight but the two of you look awfully pretty.
Youre fucking beautiful.
And is it strong enough, to burn away the cooking wine,
And I'm just tired enough.
If I close my eyes ill sleep for days, ill sleep for days.back to top
For Your Lungs Only
A right turn gone wrong.
Nothing but the dust
Left to fill your lungs up.
Have to choke and choke and choke.
Reprecussion, what got us this form, facilitation for feeling listless
Reprecussion, what got us this form, facilitation for feeling listless
The son sits out in the sun.
And thats when he calls 'father'.
He realized a long time ago, he's never coming home no.
Reprecussion, what got us this form, facilitation for feeling listlessback to top
Exploding Boy
I couldn't hear a word you said
I couldn't hear at all
You talked until your tongue fell out
And then you talked some more
I knew if I turned
I'd turn away from you
And I couldn't look back

Tell yourself we'll start again
Tell yourself it's not the end
Tell yourself it couldn't happen
Not this way
Not todayback to top
Sun Dials
alkaline trio - sundials



You were like a toilet bowl at the end of the rainbow
Something like a pot of gold stuck under my pillow
Keeping me up at night you kept my head spinning
And wishing there were windows to throw you from
Throw you from
Day or night
Fuck if I know
Hard to tell with no fucking window
And sundials
What good are sundials once the sun is gone?
What are you good for?

And we laid in my bed like a train wreck
And we both got laid like concrete
And we fought like soldiers
But we died.. we died like flies
Day or night
Fuck if I know
Hard to tell with no fucking window
And sundials
What good are sundials once the sun is gone?
What are you good for?back to top
Nose over Tail
Crack my head open on your kitchen floor
To prove to you that I have brains
Meanwhile tin men are led by little girls
Down golden roads that lead to nowhere

Fine time to fake a seizure
Feel your mouth on mine, you're saving me

Whatever happened to that silly dream you had?
I want to make it real
I'd love to rub your back
Like a plane crash that never hits the ground
I fall in love with you
I'm nose over tail for you
Your voice like the sound of sirens to a house on fire
You're saving meback to top
'97
Alkaline Trio - 97


these are the lyrics from the live at the metro dvd.

'97
====
I've got it now.
A thorn in my side, the sides of a cadillac.
Driving through,
To back it up now will be next to impossible.
I had it all.
When I was with you, I forgot about everything.
18 months.
18 months seems like fucking eternity.

You'll be there to dry my eyes,
When I breathe you in 97.
In 97.

I got it now.
A thorn in my side, the sides of a cadillac.
Driving through.
To back it up now will be next to impossible.
Had it all,
When I was with you I forgot about everything.
18 months.
I wont breathe you for 18 months.

Back in the city
The sun makes the trash on the curbs
The rats were pissing in doorways
...
Had a dream with roys face in it
And it scared me awake
I put to much at the table,
I put to much at stake
And i miss you like fuck

I don't deserve this.
I don't deserve this.
I don't deserve this.
He don't deserve this.
He don't deserve this.
I DONT DESERVE THIS NO!back to top
