Dead! - Before They Take You Lyrics

Raised up at the crack of dawn
Down to copy strides of a lucky one
Went down into the morning sun
Continued our life on the run

And we ride into the sunset and burn our eyes
Sugar love, it's no surprise
That I fell so hard
When you emptied your six-shooter in my heart
We give and take chances, we should know better
We're getting beaten down by the dark and the weather
As a thousand eyes get closer still
I'll die before I let them touch you, you know I will

Oh I will, girl you know I will
Girl you know, girl you know

Home is a place that I rarely know
And I know that I swore I'd never go
But the burden of the city shines on me (Hey! Hey! Hey!)
How could I have guessed what would become of all
The things that I have done, these last few years
Have moved so fast for me (Hey! Hey! Hey!)

Another night underneath these moonlit stars
A sip of whiskey is sure to help pass the time
We spend talking about our hometowns
And the people we used to be
So tell me what we gain from living like this
It doesn't take a wordsmith to fucking write this
I will always be hopeful to fall into
The pages aren't

What I made, what I made
What I made, what I made

Home is a place that I rarely know
And I know that I swore I'd never go
The burden of the city shines on me (Hey! Hey! Hey!)
How could I have guessed what would become of all
The things that I have done, these last few years
Have moved so fast for me (Hey! Hey! Hey!)

A drink for two in the saloon
Our eyes meet from across the room
And he catches us with his stare
He catches us with his stare
He walks across the floor
Our eyes divert to the door
And we run as fast as our feet will take us
We'll run into the street
With that sweaty office man
Girl, I'll take this shot for you, oh
Because girl, I'll take this shot for you
Girl, I'll take this shot for you
Girl, I'll take this shot
Girl, I'll take this shot

(Hey! Hey! Hey!)

'Cause home is a place that I rarely know
And I know that I swore I'd never go
But the burden of the city shines on me (Hey! Hey! Hey!)
How could I have guessed what would become of all
The things that I have done, these last few years
Have moved so fast for me (Hey! Hey! Hey!)

They're never gonna catch us now
But now we're gonna starve until we're fucking dead

And after all that we've been through
I'll still take this shot for you
I'll always be there
This ain't how it ends

  54. Фатима Шарапова

    Моя самая самая любимая группа) 80 % моего плейлиста ваши песни) I am happy that you are and inspire me. I really want to quickly hear your new songs and add your new album to the playlist. I love each of you! you are super musicians! no one better than you can interweave the weight of metal so subtly with something ephemeral and beautiful (but at the same time realistic). In the lyrics of your songs I find what I would like to hear in difficult times and in moments of joy. Thank you so much!

  55. Help Our World

    Swedish excellence on your plate as usual 👍 We know music as few !

  56. Devin Lowney

    David Optional

    @David Optional Why? In my opinion they're so much better than millions of bands in the genre, they're one of the few Metalcore bands that i can still listening to since i got tired of the genre.
