Wait For The Blackout (The Damned)

on March 12, 2013 - 4:32pm
Lyrics: 

Don't you ask me to come out
out when the sun does shine
Gonna stay here with curtains drawn
in darkness you'll be mine

Let's wait for the blackout
The lights are too bright
Let's wait for the blackout
Wait for the night

Well welcome to my basement flat
No windows to see through
With darkness closing in, my friend
We both know what to do

Let's wait for the blackout
Wait for the night
Let's wait for the blackout
The lights are too bright
Yea!

Let's wait for the blackout
The lights are too bright
Let's wait for the blackout
Wait for the night

Come roam with me upon this earth
Keep us both alive
Know everything has lasted here
And ne'er would survive

Let's wait for the blackout
The lights are too bright
Let's wait for the blackout
Wait for the night

In darkness there is no sin Light only brings in fear There's nothing to corrupt the eyes There is no vision here At first you may find it strange But do not go away The darkness holds a power that you wont find in the day There is no vision here (repeat)

James Dean

on March 12, 2013 - 3:26pm
Lyrics: 

 

Look around outside 
Ain't nothing to do but hang around 
Think about all the stupid things that I've done 
I guess I ain't nothin' but a clown
 
If I had a wish, I swear I'd wish, I'd wish for just one thing 
And I don't even like to think about all the things my wish'd bring
 
Cuz I just wanna be James Dean 
I just wanna be James Dean 
I just wanna be James Dean 
For a day
 
I wanna be oversexed and underworked and look at me I'm such a jerk
 
And I just wanna be James Dean 
For a day 
 
Think about stories of the actors and the movies stars 
Sittin' here watchin' the old men drinkin' at the bar 
I think about Dean and all the things he should've tried 
I think about Dean and all the ways he could've died 
Yeah, died
 
And I wouldn't give a shit about anything cuz I'd be such a big movie star 
And that don't really do me much good just cryin' at the bar
 
But I just wanna be James Dean 
I just wanna be James Dean 
I just wanna be James Dean 
For a day 
 
See but I'm overworked and undersexed and look at me I'm such a wreck
 
And I just wanna be James Dean 
For a day
 
Going crazy cuz I'm always all alone 
Going crazy no one calls me on the phone 
I think about Dean and I know Dean he wouldn't care 
If I was Dean I know there'd be somebody there 
Yeah, there'd be somebody there 
For me
 
Yeah I think about all the really cool things I could do and say 
Then you go and tell me that you found out Dean was gay...
 
No, I don't wanna be James Dean 
I don't wanna be James Dean 
I don't wanna be James Dean 
Anymore

It's Over

on March 12, 2013 - 3:24pm
Lyrics: 

 

And I didn't think about
All the ways I hurt you and myself
And I hide
Wouldn't say a thing to you
I keep it to myself and my mind
I can't stand without you
And I won't find the answers when you're gone
 
But it's over to you
And I can't find the answers when you're gone
And it's over to you
And you can't find the answer where you are
 
And you know
(And you know)
I need you now
This ain't easy to admit
And no one needs to know
What goes on behind the door in my room
I'm peeking through the walls in my mind
And I can't stand without you
I won't find the answers when you're gone
 
But it's over to you
And I can't find the answers when you're gone
And it's over to you
And you can't find the answers where you are
 
I will tear you down
I will tear you down
To get into the world you wanted
I'm kicking through the wall
No one can believe in things that never change
 
[Chorus]
 
And it's over to you
And I can't find the answers when you're gone
And I can't find the answers when you're gone
And I can't find the answers when you're gone

Iris

on March 12, 2013 - 3:24pm
Lyrics: 

 

And I'd give up forever to touch you
'Cause I know that you feel me somehow
You're the closest to heaven that I'll ever be
And I don't want to go home right now
 
And all I can taste is this moment
And all I can breathe is your life
When sooner or later it's over
I just don't want to miss you tonight
 
And I don't want the world to see me
'Cause I don't think that they'd understand
When everything's made to be broken
I just want you to know who I am
 
And you can't fight the tears that ain't coming
Or the moment of truth in your lies
When everything feels like the movies
Yeah, you'd bleed just to know you're alive
 
And I don't want the world to see me
'Cause I don't think that they'd understand
When everything's made to be broken
I just want you to know who I am
 
And I don't want the world to see me
'Cause I don't think that they'd understand
When everything's made to be broken
I just want you to know who I am
 
And I don't want the world to see me
'Cause I don't think that they'd understand
When everything's made to be broken
I just want you to know who I am
 
I just want you to know who I am
I just want you to know who I am
I just want you to know who I am

Impersonality

on March 12, 2013 - 3:23pm
Lyrics: 

 

When I was three feet tall
I loved the mall 
And lived life for myself 
Fallin' down for laughs 
Your photograph 
Some puppets made of felt
 
Watching life in Oz Thanksgivin' Eve on Grandma's old TV 
Dancing roundabout, I'd twist and shout for everyone to see
 
Impersonality 
It's leanin' hard on me
 
Mama's in a shop 
Watching little sister by myself 
Robbed a wishing pond 
In a fleeting bond 
Vowed to share the wealth
 
Scooping up the coins 
A warning shot from some authority 
Doesn't matter now, but I'll shout out loud for everyone to see
 
Never got to know you 
Did you ever wonder why? 
Now it's nice to know ya 
And I'm glad you're doing fine
Think of all the time lost 
Was it really lost at all? 
Now I'm so proud of ya 
I'd love to tell you all I see 
Listen hard to your reality
 
Impersonality 
It's leanin' hard on me 
Impersonality 
It's leanin' hard on me
