Alkaline Trio

5-3-10-4 – Alkaline Trio

Schoolyard freaks are freezing, down getting teased again
I’m looking back and down and watching it go by
Down at the stockyards cattle screaming
Tthe trains squeak by again
I can feel my breath and I’m so thankful
I’m not one of them

The sound of the ground freezing is pounding once again
It comes with the wind that once wiped off our smiles
Alarm clock bells are screaming out the same routine again
Scrape open your eyes, rise and fucking shine, 7 am

Sit down, dead weight, and wonder
Unsure, unslept, uncovered
The new light of dawn discovered by ungrateful eyes,
Through 5-3 eyes

Schoolyard freaks are freezing, pushed to the ground again
I’m looking up and west for black to fill the sky
The sound of bottles breaking still breaking in my ears
They opened just in time to empty out
And gouge away the years

Sit down, dead weight, and wonder
Unsure, unslept, uncovered
The new light of dawn discovered by ungrateful eyes,
Through 5-3 eyes

Schoolyard freaks are bleeding, down getting kicked again
I can taste the earth and feel it in my eyes
The sound of cattle screaming, still screaming in my ears
They came in metal coffins –
chained me up and hacked me off my years

Sit down, dead weight, and wonder
Unsure, unslept, uncovered
The new light of dawn discovered by ungrateful eyes,
Through 5-3 eyes

Take Lots With Alcohol – Alkaline Trio

Hello what the hell am I doin’ here
That’s a really nice suit
This is a really comfortable chair
See I don’t know if you can help me or not
Cause I don’t feel sick
But the pains in my head have almost put me
Underground
I don’t really care if I’m healthy or not
Just clean my head up doc
I’ll give you anything you want
See I don’t know why I don’t fall in love
Well maybe I know why and maybe you could make it stop
Then we’ll cut it up and bury it and leave it
Underground
And I’ll take to wishing and fall under
Sleeping safe and sound
Just give me medicine prescribe me anything
Just knock me out and walk me through the door
I have no desire to see through my own eyes anymore
Hello what the hell are you doing here
You made a really strange face
This is a really uncomfortable air
I see I’m boring you, maybe I bore myself too
That’s why I need help, I’m cleaning blood off dusty shelves
I been cut up in this room so many times it might take days
And those stress cracks in the wood
How nicely the soak up the stains
Been telling myself these jokes for so long well so long
I’m a has been who is heckled on the stage

Madam Me – Alkaline Trio

The sunrise fills your eyes, cannot hear your cries
Pleading please just go away
I can’t take another day of this
No surprise, a surplus of lies, freed from the skies

Is there something that I missed?
Can’t even take another day of this
Lower than piss, have you ever felt like this?
She can’t recall the last time she avoided it
Lower than piss, have you ever felt like this?
Judging by your eyes like crystal balls
Madam Me is predicting that your answer will be yes

The sunrise burned out your eyes, failed to apologize
As it was eating at your face,
took your smile away without a trace of it
Warmer than piss have you ever felt like this?
It just might take a fever to encounter it
Knee deep in shit there’s no avoiding it
From your knees you’re coated brown,
to your toes there is no sound like this

And I will keep you warm in hell
And I will keep you warm in hell
And I will keep you warm in hell
Way down in hell

Keep Em Coming – Alkaline Trio

14 hours ahead – a head that’s heavier than lead
and I’ve got toothpicks in my eyes
A smile more yellow than the sky
I’ve got a song stuck in my head
One that I miss more than my bed
It’s a song sung from a fallen milkman
Who’s drinking bleach instead
I’m much like him

14 hours unfed – I spent the last cents in my head
They’re worth much less than pennies now
Food for one thought shared with a crowd
and I’ve got a painting in my head
A deeper blue bled thicker red
More red than Bloody Marys coast to coast
I hate flying I said – that’s what I said

Sad, sorry excuse
Just like everything that made her smile
and everything I use
I won’t go back to the way it was
I’m now huffing gas and sniffing paint,
to take away this buzz that I call you

14 hours ahead – a head that’s heavier than lead
Toothpicks pry open eyes
A smile more yellow than the sky
I’ve got a song stuck in my head
One that I miss more than my bed
It’s a song sung from a fallen milkman
Who’s drinking bleach instead
I’m much like him

14 hours unfed – I spent the last cents in my head
They’re worth much less than pennies now
Food for one thought shared with a crowd
I’ve got a painting in my head
A deeper blue bled thicker red
More red than Bloody Marys coast to coast
I hate flying I said – that’s what I said

Sad, sorry excuse
Just like everything that made her smile
and everything I use
I won’t go back to the way it was
I’m now huffing gas and sniffing paint,
to take away this buzz that I call you

Jaked On Green Beers – Alkaline Trio

It’s been a long time since I’ve been close to you.
It’s been a long time since I’ve been sad.
It’s been awhile since I’ve really spent time with you.
Wish I could take back the times that I had.
The only thing that you ever really did for me is make me oh so miserable.
And the hope that I’ll never see your face again is anything but questionable.

I hope this is good-bye.
I hope this is good-bye.

There was a time when I thought you were a friend to me.
I think those times I was probably just drunk.
And if they offered a test that I’d be a good friend
I’d put money down that you, too, would flunk.
The only thing you ever really took from me were my records (I DONT KNOW WHAT IS SAID RIGHT AFTER THIS PART)

I hope this is good-bye.
I hope this is good-bye.

(repeats whole song one more time)
