Arctic Monkeys - Fright Lined Dining Room Lyrics




[Verse 1]
You thrive on dancing in our laps
Before the more familiar chaps
And all the curtain leads to fever

We watched the womanizer cry
And in the last sip you and I
Declared we might require a breather

I am the truth true through and I
Convey excitement fluently
As solid as I can busk shock

With well presented merry men
And I know all too well
I shouldn't break the key off in the lock

[Chorus]
And the tumble splits the fray
Revealing silk and fit
In the fright lined dining room
Throw a gaze towards them while they feast

[Verse 2]
The days drag their heels
When you're not there to crack the whip
And the weeks wait to burst like a sache of brats

The old pantomime villian follows my coat
And he hides where it hangs and he spies through the slots

And meanwhile in the desert's only costume shop
The cowels hide and wait to rot away
The identities of the willing

[Verse 3]
Drowned bags of sugar in the night
Rocketing shutter doors despite
The shop not opening for hours

You can itch, flap and whistle
And try to avoid the top
As I scribbled over dribble
You were snoring, showing off

[Chorus]
The tumble splits the frays
Revealing silk and fit
In the fright lined dining room
Throw a gaze towards them while they feast

  7. Ants In My Pants

    I think this is the last song with Alex's original voice

  8. Mehmet Ali Kaçar

    *UNDERRATED*

    THE IDENTITY OF THE WILLY

    Jonjon Jon

    THE IDEN-TITTIES OF THE WILLY

  10. JanaTheHusky

    This gives me mega villain vibes! I love it!

  11. No Velkuma

    The more I listen to AM the more I get deeper into the energy of their older songs. I feel closer to discovering all songs

  12. Eya -

    waw i m dying

  13. Smesh

    This songs sounds a little bit like a metal style idk

  14. Fran C. Recabarren

    Still not over this one!

  15. slavomirgajdos

    One of the favourite song..just beautiful

  16. Woodoow66

    This is the missing link between FWN and Humbug.

  17. Michelle Dean

    Have they ever performed this live because it's great 👍

    amy haleeb

    Mich Dean I don’t think so

  18. CupidStuntBoyZ

    Beginning drums remind me of do I wanna know

  19. Giulia Pedrazzi

    MY GOD O.O

  20. Fran C. Recabarren

    On repeat since 2011.

  21. ΝΙΚΗΤΑΣ ΤΖΑΜΟΥΡΑΝΗΣ

    It's just a tiny guitar

  22. Breadbin Urine

    This song could have easily replaced any song on Humbug except for Cornerstone and Crying Lightning

    Rory Whelan

    Breadbin Urine Nah I’d say it could only replace dangerous animals, possibly potion approaching but I like that one

  23. Lucas Mendes Gabriel

    Gotta love that Carmen Miranda vibe

  24. Juan Pablo Barbadillo

    2:55 rapid pedals orgasms

  25. Khulan Erdene

    Between two lungs...Oops wrong song XD

  26. Dig Down

    Reminds me of Dangerous Animals, with a little bit of Favourite Worst Nightmare influence (not surprising considering this song as one almost included in Humbug)

  27. Elijah O'Brien

    You always gotta do a double check when someone says they're an Arctic Monkeys fan. There's Arctic Monkeys fans and then there's people who are specifically a fan of their album AM. Old Arctic Monkeys and new Arctic Monkeys fans just aren't the same thing.

    ironic speling

    Elijah O'Brien i like their first album best "whatever people say i am thats what im not" am i cool? Haha

    Ana

    Jesus, let people like the band for the sake of liking the band! Who cares if they know to every single Humbug b-side or just enjoy Do I wanna know? There’s not such thing as a ‘real fan’, this hierarchy shouldn’t be a thing to begin with. Your comment is a tad generalised and entitled. Nobody has to prove themselves to you. Just let them enjoy things, will you?

    ironic speling

    Ana no liking one song doesnt make you a fan of the band it makes you a fan of the song. Liking an album makes u a fam of the album. Liking most of their shit, now that makes you a fan of the band.

    Yashovardhan Jhala

    how does that affect you? just enjoy their songs, mate.

  28. Lance Buttercream

    whoever comments on this vid...are the ones who know this band...you are my lot.

    jake wsquires

    We all have our secret club of true AM passion

  29. WolfPrincess Tanja T.

    I want Arctic Monkeys to make more songs like this one. Beautifully intense, not jadedly bored and lazy.

    Eleni K.

    WolfPrincess Tanja T I think all their songs are great....

  30. Polina Banana

    Every time i think i know all of their songs, i find out I'm wrong

    Ghost King Gamer

    Polina Banana Heck no

    Neverender 19

    they have more than twenty unknown songs (and i mean really unknown)

    Natasha Benitez

    @Neverender 19 so can you possibly share them with US All??
    If possible. Thanks for letting US know. Appreciate it very much.

    dayshawna

    Natasha Benitez if you have spotify just search arctic monkeys b sides, they’re all on there but they’re hard to find people make playlist with all the bsides only. that’s how i found all these songs

    Jules Gilmour

    He looks like a lesbian

  31. andrew kennedy

    17 unlike. Silly people

  32. Gavin Coon

    The bassline is similar to Caravan's bassline

  46. Moon Striderz

    this is a huge influence on me. My names Jack ive played drums and guitar for 10 years. Arctic Monkeys is where it began. I have a new song called Strike 3, that sounds much like this style - check us out! https://soundcloud.com/meettheczar

  47. Miriam Crook

    I love the bizarre lyrics of the humbug/ favourite worst nightmare era.

    Joe Bond

    what about suck it and see, library pictures of the quickening canoe, the first if its kind to get to the moon. HAHAHAHA

  48. Joshua Brown

    KA Lip Care

    My fav is fwn but everytime I listen to humbug b sides I feel like Im cheating on the album.

    Sean Kilburn

    @KA Lip Care ye fwn for me

  50. mufc4lyf2011

    I guess this is a place for us indie folk to congregate, well away from the fangirls

    AFMakers

    +Kata Kálmán going to the older songs and stating you're not that kind of 'fangirl' doesn't make you not one of them. Just like sticking feathers up your butt doesn't make you a chicken

    Hannah Nelis

    hey i'm a fan and a girl and i just invaded your reserved 'real indie fans only' space i believe

    Kata Kálmán

    @AFMakers I'm stating that I'm not that kind of fangirl who only knows AM and listens to it because of fashion. What's the problem with female fans?

    AFMakers

    +Kata Kálmán nothing wrong with female fans. You just said fangirl, so I was picking up on it. I wasn't attempting to be sexist, sorry if it came across like that

    Kata Kálmán

    @AFMakers ok then, no problem

  51. krazyako

    I think people don't like Humbug much because they see AM as more of the "Whatever people say" kind of band, and/or holding dearly to nostalgia of the former.

    Humbug (and a bit of FWN) is good for AM because it shows AM's diverse music, experiment darker scenarios, complex storytelling rather than just plain "blokes at the sportsbar" music.

    Nevertheless, AM is a great band because of versatility and creative.

    I like Humbug when the day feels gloomy, or listen to the acoustic version of some songs in there when I feel adventure-y.

    Mr. Tebio

    I think you shouldn't generalize... And I obviously don't know how long have you been listening to Arctic Monkeys, but I can say that, far from what you said, tons of people think that Humbug is the best record that Arctic Monkeys ever made. And I include myself. For me, the Humbug era is the best of the band until now, and I think that hardly will be overcome. In fact, I think that AM is the record that fit less in the entire discography of Arctic Monkeys. For many reasons. Most of people who think AM is the best record are those who listen Arctic Monkeys because of AM. And that's the way it is.

    But well, maybe this thoughts could be because I follow the band since before the release of the first record...

    John F.R

    +Mr. Tebio vo so de la B 😂 , los fuiste a ver en el 2012 ?

    Sen

    I kinda see them going through the same changes as bands like the Beatles did. Started off as young blokes with boppy tunes. But as they grow and mature so do the songs in to something I guess maybe you could say more layered?

    Rory Whelan

    LifEffect better than the beatles

    dayshawna

    Rory Whelan oh no

  52. legendaryfiqa

    This song... fucking badass

  53. Peter Hill

    Bdrink vodka then listen to this its so good

    Jared Seiple

    Drinking Steel Reserve and Rush

  54. AlexPrime9

    I think Humbug is their best!!! and Dance Little Liar is the most underrated song of all time!! 

    Hercules Campina

    @Vitor Abdelnour You forgot drums!! Matt Helders is a beast!

    Vitor Abdelnour

    Yeah man! Off course! Is a monster hehe

    Kata Kálmán

    @AlexPrime9 Humbug is the only album on which I like all the songs. Splendid! :D

    Vitor Abdelnour

    @Kata Kálmán also B-Sides. Great!

    Sour Oddity

    AM is the only album that has songs that I will EVER skip, not to say I don't like them, but they aren't my favourite.

  55. Jorge Villarejo

    Whoaaaaa

  56. Mark S

    Am I the only person who sees the connection in this song to Hotel California? Total AM Fan.

  57. Gussep Mendoza

    Esta de huevos!!!
    Amo a los arctik

  58. Maggie

    this fucking song. incredible 

  59. Damian Delafosse

    I mastubob to this.

  60. michel gutierrez

    That guitar riff after starting at 1:56 reminds me of Cakes Comfort Eagle riff. Still bloody good though!

    Nick

    THATS ACTUALLY A BASS

  61. krisconz

    whoa! this gave me wood! cant believe I havent heard this before

  62. 17nblissful

    It's as sexy as their 2013 sound. But 4 years earlier...

  63. jasmin robinson

    2:52 more like ;)

  64. Daniel T

    Should've made album.

  65. cormac kelly

    Wow this should have ten times more views.

  66. Lewis Coombs

    Thank god for the disclaimer, else I might have tried to cook the song

  67. derp kerp

    I agree, it is. But the official release didn't have all the good songs they released for humbug, about half of the songs they released made it to the album.

  68. PSExposed

    Nah, Humbug's their best yet, mate.

  69. PSExposed

    Completely agree, mate.

  70. André Wallace

    My God. Thanks for the uploads.

  71. derp kerp

    The official release of Humbug was fucking terrible for song choice, just go on pirate bay and try to find a version with every humbug song release with the b sides and all.

  72. P S

    2:53 - much better.

  73. Sydney Rose

    best and worst comment train ever

  74. Joseph Butler

    This should definitely be on an album

  75. Nostalgia64

    Fucking badass!!!

  76. Nisha Chopra

    Love this to pieces omg! Why didn't I discover you earlier!

  77. Jannine Marin C
