AFI - A Deep Slow Panic Lyrics



I watched you go out the door
With poise I'd not seen before
I saw you shine, you shine
I collapsed to the floor
It promised it'd miss me more and said,
"True love is mine.
I missed you.
Did you miss me?"

Slowly, it's consuming me
Deliberate and deep
I can't take this deeper panic
Teach me, teach me not to dream
Dream deeply

I haven't left here for days
My panic keeps me awake as he unwinds inside
He told me I should have known
That he hated the way I'd grown to love soft lies
She lied
"Do you miss her?
Like I miss you?"

Slowly, it's consuming me
Deliberate and deep
I can't take this deeper panic
Teach me, teach me not to dream
Dream deeply

[Instrumental]

Slowly, it's consuming me
Deliberate and deep
I can't take this deeper panic
Teach me, teach me not to dream
Dream deeply

Slowly, I'll swallow your fears
For all of those years
How could you let them consume me?
Teach me, teach me how you sleep
So sweetly

Slowly, it's consuming me
Deliberate and deep
I can't take this deeper panic
Teach me, teach me how you sleep
So sweetly

    Teach me not to dream... That was all one can do, when serving over a thousand days Behind the Walls. That was the only freedom one had. Now I just work like an indentured servant for rent and bills with a hollow smile to get by.. DreamZzz are ever-changing

  15. ginganu1234

    I have not listened to this album in a long time, but it is fantastic and this song certainly gives a feel of Dark Wave music of the 80's i love it

    Hauntingly beautiful.

    Used to hate this album but gave it a chance again and I'm started to really enjoy it.

  20. TheSentinel909

    Too bad the rest of the album couldn't hold a candle to this song

  21. daniel estrada

    Singing me into my end deep sleep..

  22. Kyle Smith

    Never been a huge AFI fan but this is a very good song.

  23. Whimsy Jae

    Woke up at 4 am with a panic attack and shaking; relating so had to this song :(

  24. Mia Pet

    I watched you go out the door
    With poise I'd not seen before
    I saw you shine, you shine
    I collapsed to the floor
    It promised it'd miss me more and said,
    "True love is mine.
    I missed you.
    Did you miss me?"

    Slowly, it's consuming me
    Deliberate and deep
    I can't take this deeper panic
    Teach me, teach me not to dream
    Dream deeply

    I haven't left here for days
    My panic keeps me awake as he unwinds inside
    He told me I should have known
    That he hated the way I'd grown to love soft lies
    She lied
    "Do you miss her?
    Like I miss you?"

    Slowly, it's consuming me
    Deliberate and deep
    I can't take this deeper panic
    Teach me, teach me not to dream
    Dream deeply

    [Instrumental]

    Slowly, it's consuming me
    Deliberate and deep
    I can't take this deeper panic
    Teach me, teach me not to dream
    Dream deeply

    Slowly, I'll swallow your fears
    For all of those years
    How could you let them consume me?
    Teach me, teach me how you sleep
    So sweetly

    Slowly, it's consuming me
    Deliberate and deep
    I can't take this deeper panic
    Teach me, teach me how you sleep
    So sweetly

  25. 8BITBASKIN

    Has a really Aiden feeling. I love it.

  26. Anthony Sforza

    Jeez... it's been over two years since this came out and it STILL cuts me deep.

    I wished they'd played this when I saw them last... though to be fair, the album still had a few weeks before it came out. The funny thing is, that I saw them in 2001 and it was super cool, then again in 2009... but it seemed as though they were "Tired", which made sense as they'd been at it for a lot of years... though seeing them in 2013... THAT was the show I walked into 2009, thinking I'd get. It's like they didn't want to get off the stage. No lie, it was the best of the three, hands down.

  27. musically lost

    :/ Not really my style......

    Kyle Smith

    musically lost I would recommend Justin Bieber.

  28. Damn Jones

    They have put out utter shit since after Sing The Sorrow. This isn't bad...

  29. C Patterson

    Heard this on XM and knew exactly who it was. Great song!

  30. DESTROYEUR666

    Don't like it

    Fabulous Killjoy

    DESTROYEUR666 then leave

  31. Belle Marie

    This is one of those songs that sings to my soul...

    Roberto Ramos

    hurts our soul

  32. Renata Benia

    this one i most like from burials. anyway, i don't like so much this album, but i admit some songs are amazing ♥

  33. Daniel Castillo

    their best song by far

  34. Brian Linguica

    east bay way to get each point across

  35. patmichael1229

    This song is awesome. Burials is so damn good.

  36. xBRVTALx

    both this song and the embrace have brilliant breakdowns. they are quite similar but still quite different.

  37. Justin Barber

    Why does David go higher pitched in his vocalizations at the end of words? The whole album is filled with it, it's not bad, in just curious if it came natural to him or if it was intentional, because it sticks out more in burials .

    Max Maidment

    To this day I barely listen to AFI anymore...

    tj g

    He started doing that live at the end of the Crash Love your, so I guess maybe he likes it, I think it sounds cool.

    Killed In Advance

    Max Maidment i mean listen to kill em all by metallica, you will notice the same.

    burntvirtue

    Yeah, it's a really bad habit that he's developed. It's really extreme during live performances now, and is very distracting to the point that it takes away from the song, and the performance as a whole.

  38. Victoria Abouelenin

    Can't stop listening to it

  39. Israel De Leon

    teach me !!

    Justin Barber

    I'll teach you.

    Afireinside912

    +Justin Barber
    Teach me?

  40. Pedro Granados

    Perhaps the best song of this album.. those old school touches just amazing!

  41. fadedsun303

    One of AFIs best songs and one of Davey's best vocal performances. 

  42. M ichaaa

    AWESOME!

  43. CthulhuDarkLord

    This may be my favorite AFI song ever... ANd I've been a fan for almost a decade and a half. My first was Art of drowning, and I remember buying each album, loving it's individual flavor. I loved every minute of it, so much I could never pick a favorite song, or moment but this song... I don't know what it is about it, something about it, some untouchable quality just resonates. Before this I probably would have said Art of Drowning, or Black Sails was my favorite, but this album was something unlike any other AFI or any other music. It sounds familiar, like AFI, and touches of bands like The Cure, but this album is really something special. 

    Charlie Muñoz

    Voodoo too?

    Charlie Muñoz

    Soon the voodoo launches to the moon or mars or fuck wit

  44. Barbara T

    Come to Sacramento!

  45. Afireinside912

    I can't believe people think this song is crap.. you might not like the 80s vibe.. but it's not "Crap" whatsoever. It's one of the best on the album!

    Ryan Larkin

    I love this song, my favorite off the album

    jeremy peterson

    @disable radio communications nigga please

  46. julieann b

    Great song :)

  47. KendylTV

    Very Sing the Sorrow-esque, one of the best tracks on the album. It also has sort of folk sound in some way, maybe it's Davey's voice. And not to mention, the melodies in the guitar are beautiful.

  48. Hellysandre

    Dam it's good !!!

  49. mohd firdaus

    AFI forever........

  50. LILIBETH DE LA CRUZ

    justo publikdo en mi cumpleaños yuup!!

  51. Jorge Barrios

    for all of those years, how could you let them consume me...

  52. Zerotthehero

    Saw AFI in DC 2 months ago…. absolutely AWESOME!!! Saw them in a small club with a great crowd. Everyone was singing together and having a great time! 

  53. FoggyInc

    My favorite on the new album :D

  54. Josh Easton

    ....teach me not to dream, dream deeply!

  55. Nikki6sic6

    Beautiful song. I Love it!

  56. SalmonBoa420

    AFI defines honesty

  57. nexornator

    great song. a truly AFI song

  58. Percy Soldevilla

    Great álbum, 85% good songs! - PERÚ.

  59. Amber Martinez

    This whole album is a freaking masterpiece! My new favorite! AFI never lets me down!

  60. straight edge.

    Teach me how you sleep so sweetly <3

  61. alexis simmers

    perfect my loves :) keep up ur amazing work.

  62. AgitoGeist

    Thank you

  63. Martin Doležal

    Must say that they went through an interesting change. It's not the same as 15 years ago, but they still got it:-)

  64. Jamila Taguba

    Why is anyone here but to listen this amazing band? Who cares if YOUR favorite album is hated by someone else? Fuck it. Now shut it and enjoy Davey Havok's sexy voice...

  65. Gonçalo Alexandre

    AWESOME

  66. EndlesslyDxH

    I've been a huge fan of AFI for 7 years now and fucking LOVE them <3 BEST band ever! more likely this is my second favorite song #Burials ^_^

  67. russ hicks

    burials is no sing the sorrows but its a hell of a lot better than crash love

  68. SL04

    Possibly my favorite AFI song ever. Well done, lads.

  69. Tony GJD

    The beauty and intelligence of this song, that will never get played on the radio, be considered for a grammy, or just properly respected....sickens me.

  70. thirtysevenism

    I have been one to criticize before but I'll always love AFI. And this song is amazing. I can't stop listening to it. There's never going to be another Black Sails so let's all just move on, shall we?

  71. Eddie Gutierrez

    i like how this song has some The Cure influence

  72. Aminah Zahra

    Davey Havok.. my idol. my every fucking thing... You been in my heart since age 16... im 23 now. And i can never get tired of this... I will be 60 and replaying your songs...

  73. Aminah Zahra

    GOD this songggg... goes sooo deeeeep. DAVEY ughh why you gotta go deeep. Making me think of my ex..

  74. Yawny_Cash

    <3 reminds me of Depeche Mode in a way

  75. Jack Burke

    I've been listening to AFI since Answer that and stay Fashionable. Davey Havoc developed his voice in Black Sails but the content of his lyrics don't effect me them same since 2002. He hasn't sold out but has bought into the commercial side of the industry. Even his new hair style screams HOLYWOOD. Every artist has a bad album. I hope he goes back to his roots.

  76. Nope Noperson

    Let me rephrase my statement: CL was full of terribly overused melodies, that's what I really wanted to say.

  77. Pete Wade

    While I still love the older up tempo Misfits esque hardcore days of AFI...they are one of the few bands who I have not been able to give up on.
    It's as if they've gone from Misfits to DAnzig in a way...if you think about it.

    Crash Love was not very good....but Burials, I am in love with.

  78. dcanhiphop

    AFI 4 LIFE

  79. Michael Gunther

    Davey has such a unique..haunting voice. You cant help but like everything he sings.

  80. Jesse Garcia

    well then why are you still looking up there songs on youtube??

  81. mikeyway388

    AFI was my first favorite band ever. I will always love them. Davey's voice is unlike any others <3

  82. Allister Tenpenny

    All the albums were great. Shut up. All of you.

  83. Matthew Maxon

    Gotta say...From what I've heard so far, Crash Love is immensely better than this album. Little disappointed. DU sucked and it seems like this one might too sadly..

  84. Blair Didcote

    sing the sorrow sucked, The last decent thing this band did was "the art of drowning".

    Fabulous Killjoy

    I beg to differ, Mr. Punk Purist

  85. Dominic AaAaa

    why so much dislike for crash love i thought it was a great album, preferred it to decemberunderground actually. not given the new one a proper listen yet great song though, sounds a bit like the cure!

  86. usefulidiot81

    I couldn't agree more. there were some amazing tracks on Crash Love, but overall, it was pretty generic. This album is so unique in the way Sing the Sorrow was.

  87. Kyattchan

    ._. You are all contradictions. First you go after me for appreciating music on a "deeper level", now it's about personal preference? How about that music isn't just about the type of song you hear, but about the singing, guitar/drumming playing skills of the band? ;) Listen to a metal/rock/punk band live practice just when they first started and then go see a more recent live after they have been out for years. You'll easily see how they 'improved'. This is my last reply to you, I'm bored now.

  88. Rob Allen

    this is worse than joy division

  89. Nope Noperson

    Burials is a damn good album in my opinion...DU was ok, CL bored me to death with it's generic sound, but this...this is STS quality, but completely different from STS...buy it people, you won't regret it!

  90. Nilbanas

    This album is amazing <3 Much better than Crash Love (In my opinion, of course)

  91. Senium

    Love the Post-Punk approach of this album!!!

  92. Senium

    Love the Post-Punk approach of this album!!!

  93. BKNetsdwill8

    I don't know what you're saying but the bass line on this song is great

  94. Christine Gorla

    Sounds like 17 Crimes

  95. jplabriaire

    When i heard 'Very proud of ya' almost 20 years ago, i thought they would end up being a very aggressive hardcore-band. Never expected their evolution. Still love em, great new album!!!

    Fabulous Killjoy

    jplabriaire I heard it just today and I kinda liked it, but I was just confused and surprised

  96. WASIV

    I hope the rest of the album is nothing like this song. this blows. how did this band go from good to complete crap? this is music for little girls

  97. Hugo hamilton Perez

    AFI! AFI AFI AFI
