LYRICS

1.  Introduction (instrumental)

(Written by Dallon Weekes)

 

 

2.  Choke

(Written by Dallon Weekes)

 

Stop.

Drop.

and drag me into place

and lock the fire escapes

I’ll break your pretty face

 

Oh

You

clever little things

the sycophantic teens

what a precious basket case

 

Now shut your dirty mouth

If I could burn this town 

I wouldn’t hesitate

to smile while you suffocate and die

And that would be just fine

and what a lovely time that it would surely be

So, bite your tongue and

choke yourself to sleep

 

You get everything you want

and money always talks

to the idiot savants 

 

Now shut your dirty mouth

If I could burn this town 

I wouldn’t hesitate

to smile while you suffocate and die

And that would be just fine

and what a lovely time that it would surely be

So, bite your tongue and

choke yourself to sleep

 

3. Social Climb

(Written by Dallon Weekes)

 

Come break some hearts

now tear them out 

file in for amusements with the crowd

but be advised

Participation is required

doing things not typically allowed

                    

Feels like we're having a good time

it’s true

a wonderfully good time

when I’m with you

 

Defend your factions

cut the lines

leagues of social climbers are abound

but be advised 

no restitution comes tonight

lest we lay unconscious in the ground

 

Feels like we're having a good time

it’s true

a wonderfully good time

when I’m with you

 

But if the lights don't stop me

no one’s got control of what I do.

‘Cause it’s a good time

when I'm with you

 

4.  Bleed Magic

(Written by Dallon Weekes, David Pramik, Drew Fulk)

 

I wanna take you home

A night out on the town

Say that you’re pretty so you stand up stand up

Before I drag you down

 

Crawling up your skin

Potions pills and medicines

To drain you

And bleed your magic out

 

(woah)

Lonely little life

And nobody believes you now

You’re bleeding magic out 

Don’t want to scare you off

Don’t want to know your name

You’ll never know a single thing about me

Until it’s far too late

 

Crawling up your skin

Potion, pleasing medicines

To circumvent your brain

5. Absinthe

(Written by Dallon Weekes, Tim Anderson, Pat Morrissey)

 

Bring to me

Your sons and daughters

‘cause Absinthe makes the heart

Grow fonder

 

I don’t care what momma says

You’ll wind me up

Or you’ll wind up dead

 

I don’t care what momma says

 

I don’t believe whatever this is

Until you burn all of the witches

I won’t believe whatever this is

Whatever they give you

Stop drinking it down

 

If I were you 

Then I’d stop talking

Cause soon you’ll be a dead man walking

 

I don’t care what momma says

You’ll wind me up

Or you’ll wind up dead

 

I don’t care what momma says

 

I don’t believe whatever this is

Until you burn all of the witches

I won’t believe whatever this is

Whatever they give you

Stop drinking it down

 

I hear voices

I see visions

These spirits

Are your prison

 

X 2

 

I don’t believe whatever this is

Until you burn all of the witches

I don’t believe whatever this is

Until you burn all of the witches

I don’t believe whatever this is

Until you burn all of the witches

I don’t believe whatever this is

 

 

6. Do It All The Time

(Written by Dallon Weekes, Drew Fulk,David Pramik, Micah Premnath)

 

We’re taking over the world

one kiss at a time

and then I’m taking your girl

and I’m making her mine

 

No reason why

I’m only doing anything I want to do

Because I do it all the time

 

We’re taking over the world

A little victimless crime

and when I’m taking your innocence 

I’ll be corrupting your mind

 

no need to cry

I’m only doing anything I want to do

because I do it all the time

 

(do it all the time)

well we’re so young

but we’re probably gonna die

and it’s so fun

we’re so good at selling lies

we look so good

and we never even try

get your money from a trust fund

do it all the time

 

We’re taking over the world

one kiss at a time

and then I’m taking your girl

and I’m making her mine

 

No reason why

I’m only doing anything I want to do

Because I do it all the time
