Lyrics

Bathroom at the Yates Inn

Written By: TTWBOL

I don't wanna die tonight...
I've already taken four lives...

Fill my tomb with water as I watch, I know this won't take too long, Mother!
The more you struggle, the more this will hurt. I promise it won't take long.
Why take my life away, why take it all away? Why take my life away, why take it all away?
Close your eyes child, be brave for me. Some things in life you can't see.
Just let me slip away, through your fingers soon.

It's killing me more than it's killing you!
Did this kill your pain, or open more wounds? (x2)

Don't take my life away (x2)
I wanna keep you safe
Don't take my life away

I wanna keep you safe (x2)
Don't take my life away (x2)

I feel no pain
Feel no pain
Now that I'm gone

I feel no pain
Feel no pain
Now that you're gone

I'm gonna dance with the devil
Shake hands with the angels
Now that we're gone
I'm gonna dance with the devil
Shake hands with the angels
Now that we're gone

It was the Most Beautiful Song I 've Ever Heard and I Never Want to Hear it Again

Written By: TTWBOL

Closer, closer, to the edge my dear!
What are these voices that I hear?
There isn't much time, love, don't keep them waiting!
A life I knew now is fading.

Is this how they'll remember me?
Oh, yes, yes! And what a marvelous way!
But what will they say?
Does it matter? Look what they've done! A woman living in fear is what you've become!

Dreadful days and sleepless nights (x2)

This is how it has to be!
Just one more step, you're almost free!
Yes, but I'm scared...

Thinking too much is what brought you here (x4)
Jump, just jump, you're nearly there! (x3)

I'm ready now, watch me step, from the edge to the air...

Movers and Shakers

Written By: TTWBOL

Make your way past the movers and the shakers (x4)

Make your way past the movers and the shakers (x4)

Well, put your hair up; tonight will be a new time and place.
Your life began at 20, best thing since graffiti.

Call out his name
Call out his name
Call out his name

Call out his name
Call out his name

I'm leaving her, no questions asked. I'm in beautiful lust with you, girl.
And the love I have for you has changed my point of view,
The alluring cuts on your wrist bleed such true love.
Falling asleep inside of you burns in my mind all the time,
If I ever lost you, I would fall so far away.
I should've just let myself die on that cold bathroom floor that August day.

Call out his name
Call out his name
Call out his name

Call out his name
Call out his name

Make your way past the movers and the shakers (x4)

Move your hips, now move your hips, now move your hips
Come on now, darlin'
I'll move my hips, I'll move my hips, I'll move my hips
Now come on, baby
Move your hips, now move your hips, now move your hips
Come on now, darlin'
I'll move my hips, I'll move my hips, I'll move my hips
Now come on, baby

Shake your thing, now shake your thing, now shake your thing
Come on now, darlin'
I'll shake my thing, I'll shake my thing, I'll shake my thing
Now come on, baby
Shake your thing, now shake your thing, now shake your thing
Come on now, darlin'
I'll shake my thing, I'll shake my thing, I'll shake my thing
Now come on, baby

Make your way past the movers and the shakers (x4)

We Plunge Our Hands Deep Into the Sand

Written By: TTWBOL

We plunge our hands deep into the sands,
On the beaches of the villages of the people (x3)
Who long for a true-er existance (x2)

We plunge our hands deep into the sands,
On the beaches of the villages of the people,
Who long for a true-er existance
Who long for a true-er existance

Well we scream, well we scream, well scream...
Well we scream, well we scream, well scream! (x2)

We plunge our hands deep into the sands,
We plunge our hands, we plunge our hands.
We plunge our hands deep into the sands,
We plunge our hands...

We are the youth!
(The - Youth!)
We'll stand and fight!
(We'll - Fight!)
We are the youth!
(The - Youth!)
Taking back our lives!

We are the youth!
(The - Youth!)
We'll stand and fight!
(We'll - Fight!)
We are the youth!
(The - Youth!)
Taking back our lives!

We are the youth!
(The - Youth!)
We'll stand and fight!
(We'll - Fight!)
We are the youth!
(The - Youth!)
This is our time!

(Guitar solo!)

We are the youth!
(The - Youth!)
We'll stand and fight!
(We'll - Fight!)
We are the youth!
(The - Youth!)
Taking back our lives!

We are the youth! (x7)

Trace the Mona Lisa and Call Yourself and Artist

Written By: TTWBOL

Steal the beats out of my chest.
Hold your bloody muscle next to my breast.
We will run this town, you and I.
We will run from this town, you and I.

Oh, love, for it is time to burn this life.
Rise up from the soot, my dear.
Drown them all alone, they deserve it, no?
Drown them all alone, they deserve it, no?

Oh, love, for it is time to burn this life.
Rise up from the soot, my dear.
Drown them all alone, they deserve it, no?
Drown them all alone, they deserve it, no?

Oh, love, for it is time to burn this life.
Rise up from the soot, my dear.
Drown them all alone, they deserve it, no?

The steam on the windows means that we're alive (x2)
Our stained hands means we've committed these crimes (x2)

Steal the rhythm out of my two hands! (x3)
Out of my two hands..
Keep my rhythm in your pretty little head! (x2)

Yeaaaahhhhh ooohh ohh oh oh oh!!!

Oh, love, for it is time to burn this life.
Rise up from the soot, my dear.
Drown them all alone, they deserve it, no?
Drown them all alone, they deserve it, no?

Oh, love, for it is time to burn this life.
Rise up from the soot, my dear.
Drown them all alone, they deserve it, no?
Drown them all alone, they deserve it, no?

Oh, love, for it is time to burn this life.
Rise up from the soot, my dear.
Drown them all alone, they deserve it, no?

Kiss for lust,
And fuck for fun!
Kiss for lust,
And fuck for fun!
Kiss for lust and fuck for fun! (x2)
Steal the voice out of my throat.
What is this world coming to?

I Went to Minnesota and All I Got is This Knife in my Back

Written By: TTWBOL

Your tongue is sharper than the knife stuck in my back...

Life moves on with or without you,
Time spent was only time wasted.

It took a lot of dirt to bury this pain,
Bury this pain.

No more will I stagger behind you,
I just ask for my pride to claim.

But the soil I used can't cover these days,
Cover these days.

(Super hard rocking!)

Insecurities got the best of you,
Blue eyes got what's left of you.

Strong arms can't keep you safe,
From a lifetime of pain within!

I think I gave pieces of my heart away (x3)
One too many times!
I'll travel these states (x5)
To collect them back!

I think I gave pieces of my heart away (x3)
One too many times!
I'll travel these states (x4)
I'll travel, I'll travel these states!

OUTRO
---------------
Too many faces, forgot all these places,
I've traveled alone, so alone, never alone, no, always alone.
Me and my trusty backpack strapped to my back.
I kiss a photo of my mother dearest, god rest her soul.
She died all alone, don't die all alone.
Don't we die all alone
Don't we die all alone
Don't we die all alone
Don't we die all alone.
I went to Minnesota not to be alone,
I ended up all alone.
I hopped a train with no intention of returning home,
Of returning home.
I lost my way, I lost my way home.
I lost my.... mind.
