LET IT BURN LYRICS

01 Let it Burn (Song for Anton Newcombe)

Yeah, I’m down when you’re up
I see the fire is burning
In your eyes again
Girl, I’ve had enough
And I’m alive when you’re down
Well take another piece of me
And leave me here alone
And watch me drown
Take another turn
You light the fire
And let it burn
Suicide isn’t enough 
I’ll give you fifty dollars
If you tell me you’ve been
Burning on that junk
And I’m down but I survive
‘cause I love the way you look at me
It’s all I got left
To feel alive
Take another turn
You light the fire
And let it burn
And I’m low when you’re high
I saw you with that fucker
In your car again
Makes we want to die
And I’m down when you’re up
I see the fire is burning
Up our lives again
Now I’ve had enough
Take another turn
You light the fire
And let it burn
Let it burn...

02 Come Again

Here she comes
She’s a white hot sin
She burns my eyes
When I let her in
She begs to me
Come out to play
I take her hand
And we fly away
Hey hey
Flying high
Over her country
Feel the rush
Overwhelming me
We watch the stars
Melt into dawn
Anticipating
Abbadon
Hey hey
Come again
And make me feel lonely wanting more
Come again
And make me feel safer than before
Rising up ‘til we’re out of sight
We disappear into the starry night
I cut myself
On her soft skin
The air is cold
And the blood is thin
We watch the sun
Rise into dawn
I close my eyes
And then you’re gone
Hey hey
Come again
And make me feel lonely wanting more
Come again
And make me feel safer than before
Rising up ‘til we’re out of sight
We disappear into the starry night
Here she comes
She’s a white hot sin
Here she comes...

03 Sarena Says

Sarena Says she’ll blow my mind
She takes control of the situation
When I’m near her
I don’t fear her
‘til she drags me through her mirror
I promise it’s the last time in my
I promise it’s the last time in my life
What will I do when you’re gone
Stare at the blinds all night?
Run from the morning light?
It goes on and on and on and on and on
Sarena Says she waste my time
And bury me in conversation
Says she needs me
Then decieves me
Cuts me up and then she bleeds me
I promise it’s the last time in my
I promise it’s the last time in my life
What will I do when you’re gone
Stare at the blinds all night?
Run from the morning light?
It goes on and on and on and on and on
When I’m down I call her name
She is on the love is gone...

04 Butterflies

Juliann says I love you
‘cause she doesn’t have a lot to say
Making love to her butterfly
And dreaming of yesterday
Is she happy?...
Jennifer’s in the corner
Mixing up the medicine
Cut herself with a razor blade
Didn’t bleed the blood was too thin
Is she happy?...
I watched you flutter
I watched you fall
I watched you fly away
That’s all
Andrea thought the answer
Was to live her life on her knees
Waiting all night for another cock
While sucking on her disease
Is she happy?...
I watched you flutter
I watched you fall
I watched you fly away
That’s all
Am I happy?...

05 Happy Ending

I’m not worried about the state I’m in
I just obsess about everything
I’m not laughing
I’m not pretending
I just want a happy ending
I’ve been praying
I’ve been transcending
I’ve been dying too
I’m not quite what you wanted, well
I’m not sorry, I’m not sorry
I’m not quite what I wanted, well
I’m not sorry, I’m not sorry
Hey, is that Bowie on the radio?
Hey, I’m not looking for a miracle
I’m not joking
I’m not defending
I just want a happy ending
I’ve been dying
I’ve been pretending
I’ve been lonely too
I’m not quite what you wanted, well
I’m not sorry, I’m not sorry
I’m not quite what I wanted, well
I’m not sorry, I’m not sorry
The stars are up
And the sky is cold and grey
I close my eyes
And slowly drift away
I’m not sorry...

06 Push Me Under

The falling water dripping through
An echo of the bitter truth
Inundated, drenched in fear
The falling rain is creeping near
I hold my head up, feel the rain
Each drop reminds me of my shame
Haunted still, I cannot go
We’re trapped by lies we both know
I can not see a way out now
I will not go no matter how
You push me under, hold me down
And after all, I think I’d rather drown
Water pulls and calls to me
Standing in my bitter dreams
Haunted still, I cannot go
We’re trapped by lies we both know
I can not see a way out now
I will not go no matter how
You push me under, hold me down
And after all, I think I’d rather drown

07 100 Mile Freefall

A hundred miles of emptiness
It’s lonely here but I confess
That it feels so good
Falling to the earth below
Warm myself in the sun’s glow
And it feels so good
Please don’t leave me behind
Bailing out I’m panicked and resigned
I’m coming down again
Spinning through the clouds and I
Watch the stars rise in the sky
And I close my eyes
To think about my family
I know their down there watching me
And they close their eyes
Please don’t leave me behind
Bailing out I’m panicked and resigned
I’m coming down again
I see you in the darkest sun
I know you’re there I see you run
But I don’t know why
I’ve been bad and I’ve been good
You said you’d leave I knew you would
But I don’t know why
Please don’t leave me behind
Bailing out I’m panicked and resigned
I’m coming down again
Please don’t leave me…

08 Get The Yeah Yeahs Out

Gonna try and fake it through another day
Watch the sun and hope it fades away
Let’s close the blinds and lock the door
C’mon girl let’s get higher than before
Streak the glass and dress me up in white
Dream a dream under the crystal light
Let’s close our eyes pretend there’s more
C’mon girl let’s get higher than before
Let’s get higher than before...
Another day another week goes by
Watch the sun it’s strung out in the sky
Let’s lose our minds and die some more
C’mon girl let’s get higher than before
Let’s get higher than before...

09 Broken

Another day in hell my friend
You take my hand
And we jumpnd we die again
Yeah, I’ve lost myself in your pale eyes
That watch me flail as I fall and vaporize
I was alone in this hole and tried to hide
‘cause you were burning me up inside
C’mon and hold me up for everyone
You’re like a shot taking me straight to the sun
I find what’s left behind
And it’s broken
Yeah, it’s broken
I see what’s left for me
And it’s broken
Yeah, it’s broken
Another night in hell my friend
We watch the stars
And the moon as they rise again
Yeah, I’ve lost myself in your pale eyes
That watch me flail and fall I’m hypnotized
I hear the voices and alarms
Going off when you’re in my arms
C’mon I’ll hold you up for everyone
You’re like a shot taking me straight to the sun
I find what’s left behind
And it’s broken
Yeah, it’s broken
I see what’s left for me
And it’s broken
Yeah, it’s broken
I close my eyes and try to find
The pieces of my life I wanted left behind...

10 The Perfect High

Earth is spinning above us
Stars like razors cut our skin
We couldn’t get any higher
We couldn’t get this far again
See a man that looks like Jesus Christ
Watch us as we’re drifting by
Engines burning out on overdrive
We don’t know where we’re going
We’ve reached the perfect high
Singing lalalalalala…
Asteroids buzzing around us
Spacemen hiding in the shade
Suck on freeze-dried lollipops
Taste like orange marmalade
See a man that looks like Jesus Christ
Counting stars that pass him by
Sitting at the top of the galaxy
We don’t know where to go now
We’ve reached the perfect high
Singing lalalalalala…
