Uh Oh, I’ve Been Stabbed Song Lyrics

Depp Versus Zorro

VERSE 1
Hold on to your symptoms
Because reflections
Saving everyone or everything
And what may not kill you
May still not save you
Hearts are bound by oxygen intake when…

CHORUS
We set the sky above everything
And let your insides out
Held the hands and flush the eyes until we can not see
Succeed or kill yourself, let your insides out

VERSE 2
And we’re pulling pins now
And leaving lines out
Microphones aren’t meant to dig you out
And the quickest way to
The heart is through
The throat with pen and paper, knife and mouth

REPEAT CHORUS

BRIDGE
We will dissect ourselves tonight
And duct tape our wounds
Wait til later now before these cuts are dry
Just before, just before, just before…

And we speak in silence while the words provide us
With an “Alright I’ll be fine”
Stop the tape, please play back and rewind
And we speak in silence while the words provide us
With an “Alright I’ll be fine”
Stop the tape, please play back and rewind

REPEAT CHORUS

A Plague On Words

VERSE 1
Stop the bloodflow with bare hands and breathe
Those plagued will go to sea
Hold your heart, your lungs and your veins
If it sinks it was never meant to be

VERSE 2
A.M. won’t reach the masses now
Dissolving lines by the city, state and town
Just because they blessed your insides
Doesn’t mean there’s more to life

CHORUS
Inhaling catastrophes
It’s you + me = kerosene
Believe in what you want to believe
If it sinks it was never meant to be

VERSE 3
Leave left ears waiting for sound
Our throats slit themselves wide open now
Left ears waiting for sound
Our throats slit themselves wide open now

REPEAT CHORUS

BRIDGE
Midwest suicide by the way I sing
Mixed drinks, umbrellas and gasoline
Keep us coming too close
We grasp so hard to be ourselves
And just let go

REPEAT CHORUS

OUTRO
Stop the bloodflow
Stop the bloodflow
We’re becoming debris

You're So Faced

VERSE 1
When the knives come through the chest
Our backs are ripped to shreds
And it strips a man from his flesh
We’re never-gonna-bes at best

CHORUS
When nosebleeds lead to lies
You’re so faced to be alive
Holding boundaries to keep us in time
You’re so faced to be alive

VERSE 2
Force a hook, not a word to make them cheer
No one sings sincere
Novacaine sets in every ear
Throwing their arms into the gears

REPEAT CHORUS

BRIDGE
You’re so wasted
What’s in the heart and not the vein
Lungs are wasted
Save your breath for those that sing
What’s in their heart and not the vein

You go to sleep in these quickly spreading flames
And start with nothing and end up the same

REPEAT CHORUS

OUTRO
You’re so wasted
When everybody complains they know somebody else
We sing and sing and sing

Headcold In A Handshake

VERSE 1
Must we spend our days
Trying to save face
You were so ghostlike
The last time that i lost faith
You kill your voice from screaming
What you don’t believe in
And it is just accepted
We left our past and gained nothing

And what you dream can be something
If you just…

CHORUS
And I won’t sacrifice
Oh, anything
When you live under a vice
It won’t mean anything

VERSE 2
We’re building monuments
Out of words they said
And it is just accepted
We left our past and gained nothing

And what you dream can be something
If you just…

REPEAT CHORUS

BRIDGE
Is this any way, to spend a holiday
When everything we need is at your feet
Is this any way, to spend a holiday
When everything we need is at your feet

REPEAT CHORUS

Is this any way, to spend a holiday
When everything you need you at your feet

Belt Slip Error

VERSE 1
Anatomy of electronic devices
Achievement scrapes out both our eyes
Wiring is hopeless
When artery and vein lead to lies

CHORUS
Engines stall, human delay
Prognosis status quo, proceed the blame
When the fall, ignites the daze
It’s a belt slip error, fade away

VERSE 2
Automations loud, while I’m holding all of your fears
In disrotation lyrics make no sound
Oh, you’ve all become gears
It carries on for years

REPEAT CHORUS

BRIDGE
From telephone to telegraph
Struck the chords that lit this match
Watch your city go down in flames
Down in flames, down in flames

REPEAT CHORUS

Fade away
Fade away
Fade away

Amputate At The Heel

VERSE 1
Like watching lips collide in air tight rooms
The saddest part is sifting through remains
Saints and sinners march, an open wound
And it’s salted with refrain

PRE-CHORUS
And I let you know, I’m letting go
But I was waiting to explode

VERSE 2
Wash off our friendships rolling off our hands
Into a spark, that once had left a mark
Saints and sinners march, an open wound
And it’s salted with refrain

REPEAT PRE-CHORUS

CHORUS
Please insert your sad lines here: ________
I’ve been sifting through the years
Still sifting, oh sifting…
Please insert your sad lines here: ________
I’ve been sifting through the years
Still sifting, oh sifting…

REPEAT PRE-CHORUS
REPEAT CHORUS

OUTRO
Your hands tied and our lungs crushed
Your lips grow heavier with lust
There are times when dissection is more than spilling guts
Hands tied and our lungs crushed
Your lips grow heavier with lust
There are times when dissection is more than spilling guts

Bucknives And Butterflies

VERSE 1
To pass the nights
She writes children letters from home
You’re so cut-throat
Leaving all your plans unknown
We all have these kinds of friendships
That keep us lying around like ghosts
We all face these kinds of hardships
That keep us dying and dying alone

VERSE 2
Cut, listen to radio
At night the kids are safe
Apart to live a life
Where you are absently upon display
By the way these kinds of friendships
Keep us lying around like ghosts
You will face these kinds of hardships
That keep us dying and dying alone

OUTRO
Like a stab to throat
Romancing the choke

Dancing’s a joke
