Alkaline Trio - Crawl Lyrics




Waking up zeroed in on medicine
Am I waking up at all today
Seeing lights, feeling pain
There's my cure on ice
I can walk but I will crawl there
I will crawl there
Sitting straight, feeling faint
An exhausted smile screens my words
But I will hear them
Here's a phrase that we all know
But I can't make sense
I don't know words but I will hear them
I still hear them
Never ran away for the sake of scars
Tried not to move but she was armed
And shots were fired
Now a hole in the head of this wounded liar
Never had a drink that I didn't like
Got a taste of you, threw up all night
I got more sick
With every sour second rate kiss
Everything I never would miss again
I don't know who your boyfriend is

  11. Emiliano Dean

    Can anyone explain to me how to play the intro riff, I'm having so much trouble learning it on guitar. The rest is easier =)

    Daniel Solano

    You play notes on the 4th string while letting the 5th string open.

  21. funny prank calls

    back in high school when I was a dumbass this was one of my favorite songs to listen to in the morning when I was going to be going to school high on pills.

    I would pop like 40mgs or 50mgs of loratabs or morphine 30 mins before the bus and listen to this song on the way to school. it was almost like a ritual. I had this on the atticus dragging the lake 2 cd.

    I was such a dumbass.

  22. Symeon Shimin

    Another year in the st. Comp cd. Brings so many feels of being a dumb kid. But it make me smile 😀

  23. Northernlights4

    When I was in my teens, i used to prefer Matt's voice over dans any day. now I prefer dan for sure. especially toward their newer stuff

  24. 000000010000000

  27. James Poulton

    My memory of this song is most fruitfully in 2003. I was doing a lot of skiing and was shooting down mountains with this beauty in my ear.

  28. Mudy MAXY

    I used to listen to Radio but this band is incredible

    Digital Ash TCG

    None None

    if you were by my side we could share this but you're gone.

    L xo

    MrNorthernlights4
    Me Too!!!! Every freakin time!

  34. Gustavo Burciaga

    I'm looking for a version of this song that had a slightly different vocal melody. I heard it once and I can't find it anymore the way it ended was different too because the vocals extended in a higher pitch till the end with the last chord strummed. If anyone can help me I'd greatly appreciate it

    Mason Green

    there was a uk version of the album as well as a us version, the two have slightly different tracks on a couple of songs. try downloading both

    Gustavo Burciaga

    Thanks man but that wasn't it, it was a live recorded version. I was able to find but thanks anyway

    OneNationUnderFraud

    Its on here just search alkaline trio crawl I'll find it. The album art looks faded

    Gustavo Burciaga

    Turns out it was a live recording but thank you guys

    Jorge Cadiz

    Atticus 2 Compilation has a live version of Crawl; pretty sure that’s what you’re looking for!

  35. TheHilikus89

    I wish I wrote this song this is how I feel nearly everyday kudos to AC3 for this <3

    Simon B.

    what are you trying to tell us?

    Steven Nunnery

    +TheHilikus89 AC3?

    000000010000000

    Wouldn't it be ak3

  36. john mainas

    Crawl a very sad song .sometimes people and places can be a little fucked up . but the power is with you . To be forward not back .

    Dawn Bringer

    @john mainas Not really, It's about those relationships you get out of but once you're out of them you feel more relieved than Broken and hurt.

    Dawn Bringer

    @john mainas Like What was I thinking? was I drunk?

  37. Brandon Halwood

    aand now theres a hole in this head of a wounded liar

  38. Nofret Braticus

    Wow this song has helped me even at the age of 31

  39. Adam Davis

    Dude the live version sounds epicc

  40. PlastickdaN

    Takes me back to the awkward teens :)

  44. RukiKatiakicz

    remember it? I still use it. what, is there another program people use now?

  45. johnny butt

    ok, just shut the fuck up please..

  46. EminentKnight

    It's not exactly something you can agree with. It's just a fact.

  47. Clint Ortega

    this song is on Atticus Dragging the Lake 2, final song best version, love this song

  48. Underthegun897

    haha yeah, it was off of that compilation

  49. Underthegun897

    there is definitely a different version of this song, might be multiple ones!


    the one ive always had, the guitar is either mixed or distorted differently. theres no piano. and there is only bass guitar through the entire first verse.

  50. Underthegun897

    is that the version with only bass on the first verse?

  51. T Casualties

    never had a drink that I didn't like, got a taste of you.. threw up all night.

    ahaha yes!!!

  52. johnny butt

    @KyroDCK agreed

  53. Steve Bartman

    5 people still don't know who your boyfriend is.

  54. Dave Elliot

    i love this mf song it used to make me cry

  55. Luke walter

    this isn't as good as the version on the atticus compilation

  56. Alaska Palms

    @TrophyScarred i think its "zero'd in" not "zero lid"

  57. 69kutulu

    3 people that need to CRAWL back under their rock.

  58. Daniel watson

    I live in England (manchester). Can't wait to see the. Just wish it wasn't a work day.

  59. JAk8836

    @CornsDaPwner Hah! You mean the only 3 songs with Dan singing? I really enjoyed that album, I just wished it had more of Dan on it. Skiba is a badass, but his lyrics on that record were very lacking.

  60. VioIentGoIdFish

    music can't get any better after this song. only hope now is to match it, because these words are difficult to beat

  61. Lem

    @MissfitBunny13 Are you from the future or are you just retarded? "their newer albums"? Last time I checked they only have one release after This Addiction and it was more of a Comp than a Studio Album. Considering it had their old stuff on it then you saying This Addiction is better than Damnesia. Which is effectively saying This Addiction is better than their old stuff, which is definitely not true.

  62. mryouwontrememberme

    Is it just me or when you look into matts eyes on the cover you start to get hypnotized by him and by the end of the song you have no soul.

    I hate it when that happens..

  63. chaplain327

    @HazyShadows hmm interesting thanks for the info man

  64. Hazy

    @chaplain327
    He claims to being Agnostic, according to Wikipedia. He just carries around the registered Church of Satanism gig to "watch people squirm."

  65. Bunnie Bombshell

    @spiffcorgi I liked This Addiction.....it was better than the rest of their newer albums, but I love all their albums (just some are better than others)

  66. chaplain327

    dan is just fucking awesome and matt is awesome...together they make alk3 which is gods music..even though matts a satanist..this went no where

  67. spiffcorgi

    @mrstupidface666 Personally think every album after Crimson sucks.... though Goddamnit and FHTI were definitely the best.

  68. Andrew Graff

    I'm sorry, Alkaline Trio is simply amazing... the ONLY songs I get tired of are Sadie and My Standard Break From Life. Other than those, I put all their CD's on shuffle over and over and over again.

  69. Hippie4Hire

    @mrstupidface666

    What about Remains? That was pretty fucking good in my opinion. Infirmary is still my all time favorite though with a bit of goddamnit mixed in for flavor.

  70. Saunadreams.de

    myband.tv <- amazing site

  71. anthony bell

    who know where to find the live version thats on an old atticus sampler? its a great fucking version..

  72. Michael Clift

    @punksk8rdude777

    lol your funny

  73. Wasabi peas

    good...but goddamnit was better

  74. Mike W

    probably the best album i think , maybee crimson can compete lol butt yeaaah love this song and trucks and trains lyrics are so catchy and relative , great band !!

  75. Oliver Aeternus

    @punksk8rdude777 yep

  76. Oliver Aeternus
