Default Dead Peasants lyrics

Does anyone have the lyrics for all of the Dead Peasants songs? They aren't on any of the lyrics sites. Thanks.

Bandaged

We were so close to letting go
But couldnít really try it
You know

Itís better to be frightened
I heard that song on a TV show
Brought me right back to you
My heart has been bandaged
But the blood is seeping through

I miss you
Wish I could hear your voice

I was wrong
But it was the right choice
I was wrong
But it was the right choice

Letís go to the bar and get
So high for a while
If weíre not breaking up yet
Letís try and crack a smile
I put my heart on sale
Are there any takers
Set myself up to fail
Always fake I knew

I miss you
Wish I could hear your voice

I was wrong
But it was the right choice

They only want you
When you donít want back
When you donít react
But I would never wait for you
When does it end
When does the lie become the man
When will we understand
That itís through

I was wrong
But it was the right choise

Burning Lights (Joe Strummerís cover)

Some dreams are made for children
But most grow old with us
And when the air can hope to hold on
And to the ground from dust to rust.

Burning lights in the desert
Such a sign only you would know
Your running tyres, theyíre out of pressure
Such a sign only you would know

And Iíve been a long haul driver
Moving things but the cops donít know
Now I can see the writing
You are the last of the buffalo

Burning lights in the desert
Such a sign only you would know
Your running tyres, theyíre out of pressure
Such a sign only you would know

Now Iíve been to California
And Iíve been to New South Wales
Sometimes I, I pull over
When I realise Iíve left no trace

Burning lights in the desert
Such a sign only you would know
Your running tyres, theyíre out of pressure
Such a sign only you would know

Death March

I meant to call you
But the time just flew
And I put if off
I put it off again

My second chance is through
Soon be you jazzing you
Remembering
The better times we had

I’m sorry I missed you
I know that’s no excuse
Oh, when death comes knocking
I run the other way

So wipe away your eyes
We’re all just waiting here to die
Like a shadow at the window
Just a low branch fading away

I’d let Floyd and Mary, too
Eleanor, John and you
Oh, but Michael
My heart still breaks for you

Hello, my friend
While you’re waiting for the end
Help the helpless
And just drift a little longer, yeah
Goodbye again
While you’re waiting for a friend
To pick you up and hold you
While you’re getting stronger, yeah
We’re all just marching
Just marching off to die

Helsinki lyrics and guitar tabs are here
http://www.guitartabs.cc/tabs/c/chri...sinki_crd.html


Get Along

Well, you let go
It's been a long time
She's alone
But she's not lonely
He's gone
Well, he gets angry
Said a lot
But didn't mean most anyway

Gonna catch a ride
(Gonna catch a ride)
Straight to New York City

She walks up
Seventh Avenue
Needs a cup
Of something stronger
What helps him up
At Niagara
He's embarrassed
But doesn't know quite what to say

You should catch a ride
(You should catch a ride)
Back to California
I will be all right
(l will be all right)
So go back to california

Get along
You can't outrun the empty now
Get along
You can't outrun the empty now

He can't remember how it started
Their hearts are separated by miles in the dark
What were we supposed to be in this life
Roommates,best friends, lovers,husband,wife
Now he's moved on to another one, goodbye
Now he's moved on to another one, goodbye

Gonna catch a ride
(Gonna catch a ride)
Straight to New York City
You should catch a ride
(You should catch a ride)
Away from New York City

God Damn

God damn the reasons
That we've been given
I'm not believing again
God damn the reasons
That we've been given
I'm not believing again
I took the same drugs as you
So let's ride it through
There is no relief in

True
I don't need you
God damn it feels good
To be in love again

I wake up with you next to me
Don't know how, baby
Collect the wounded and retreat
You took the same drugs as me
So let's wait and see
There is no relief for me

True
I don't need you
God damn it feels good
To be in love again
    
Made a wreck of me
One hundred miles an hour
Straight into concrete
We hit the darkest hour
I trace the scars, the crashing cars
I watch the stars retreat from view

An Atheists Prayer

It takes a tragedy
To get through to you and me
It takes a tragedy
To see what's next to me

You went searching every road
But what were you looking for
Always a locked door
You'd just invite your secret world

It's temporary, that is all
Hold you tight when you are falling
Feels like you sink forever
When you blink you're coming up for air


Well, how many times would get you ahead
But we never came out dead
So close your eyes and we'll cry for peace
An atheists prayer we'll try for free


Wish I knew you better
Wish I would have been there
Wish I knew you better
Wish I would have been there...

Not Going Down Alone

It's too late to let go
We are only everything that we know
And I'm not going down alone
We can't break this mold
Do as we are not as we have been told
Yeah, I'm not going down alone

I swear
To hold your hand all the way
You're scared
Don't stare
At this emergency room
Break a broken dare
We know

It's too late to say no
Sorry is the last place we'd ever go
I'm not going down
So just fold your arms, do your harm
Tighten your belt, sound the alarms
We'll be starving soon
I miss the other you

I swear
To hold your hand all the way
You're scared
Don't stare
At this emergency room
Break a broken dare
We know

It's too late to let go (Too late to let go)
We are only everything that we know
And l'm not going down alone
I'm not going down alone
Well, I'm not going down alone

Baby, Let It Out

Laughing at you now
Like they didn't know you were here first
I thought you were better
But you were sick, sicker than your worst

You gave'em what they wanted
A punch line that you flaunted
We cried outside but did we really try
I don't know

Baby,let it out
It's better if you spill
Waiting in the dark for someone to save you
Never will
Keep the devil in you still

Baby, let'em in
You know you let'em win
You should have never been there
At all

Lonely, are you sleeping
Funny, liars weeping
I still see you there alone
With your leather jacket on
I'm gonna miss you anyway

Baby,let it out
It's better if you spill
Waiting in the dark for someone to save you
Never will
Keep the devil in you still

Baby, let it out
It's better if you spill
Waiting in the dark for someone to save you
Never will
Waiting in the dark for someone to save you
Never will

We love to think that we can all
Love to have it stand so tall
Looking down on everyone
Makes you feel
We're gonna miss you        ,
I'm gonna miss you anyway
