Dresden Dolls, The - The Mouse And The Model Lyrics




Nothing is certain at this time of day
You could reverberate you could decay
The mouse and the model are laughing at us
We'll risk it we're desperate for someone to trust

Let's start a new heart
The new charts are in
We'll take we'll break them
And make them give in

By counting your blessings you wind up in debt
It starts with your family and ends in your bed
You jekyll and hyded when you could have let
Your guard down your dress up you must be upset

Let's start a new heart
The new charts are in
We'll take them we'll break them
And make them give in

It's dark over here on the flip side of reason
The teaser could be something easy like
"They did it in a book"
You're a crook
You're a fake
You're committed
If you did it say you did it
If you didn't
Suck it up and say you did

Let's start a new heart
The new charts are in
We'll tax them relax them
And mate them for fun

The vote by a landslide
For jekyll and hyde
Mackenzie macavity
Bonnie and clyde

    Nothing is certain at this time of day

    The mouse and the model are laughing at us
    We'll risk it we're desperate for someone to trust

    Let's start a new heart the new charts are in
    We'll take them we'll break them we'll make them give in

    By counting your blessings you wind up in debt
    It starts with your family and camps in your bed
    You Jekyl and hide it when you could have left
    Your guard down your dress up you must be upset

    Let's start a new heart the new charts are in
    We'll take them we'll break them we'll make them give in

    It's dark over here on the flip-side of reason
    The teaser could be something easy like they did it in a book
    You're a crook you're a fake you committed
    If you did it say you did it if you didn't suck it up and say you did

    Let's start a new heart the new charts are in
    We'll tax them relax them and make them forfeit
    The vote by a landslide the Jekyl and Hyde
    Mackenzie macabre she's bonnie and Clyde

    I've learned today my new favourite singer is married to my all time favourite author. It made me feel strangely happy. Fangirls...

  4. ScaryPunkGhost

    My new favourite song :)

  5. Ashley Dufault

    This is different from the versions I've heard, mostly live and with less notable guitar. Love it. =]

  6. silverbaal

    You give so much hope. Remember this song during one of the lowest points in my life. But I made it through and it's still one of my favorites. <3 <3

  7. Sister Sister

    10 in a row lol that's called a CD

  8. Senpai Torpid DOW

    Same! I just cannot get enough of that unique vibe they offer. Such a great pair.

  9. MessieAs

    How could you?

  10. cassidymav

    Could they possibly be more talented!! My heart is no longer mine.

  11. Emerald Mcgill

    My favourite! I love trying to sing along to the ''uh uh...uh''s, even though I always miss some :)

  12. inkblackRose

    heroine = female hero, like buffy or black widow or someone. heroin = dangerous opiate. i agree with your point, but it's sort of like the velvet underground song. it makes you sit in contemplation. that's worthwhile, if poorly expressed.

  13. mesdames messieurs

    nope, she shaves and draws them on!

  14. mesdames messieurs

    well this is the kind of feeling that i get when listening to dresden dolls, too. i don't know where it comes from, i've never done drugs, but these songs just make me feel like i could sit around for minutes, being unable to speak, just think about what world is like. :D

  15. violeta240

    are her eyebrows tattooed on?

  16. CinoChecker

    I find this song so very inspirational.

  17. AndiBean

  18. Autumn George

    Oh my gosh.. Rylan did an amazing cover of this song. He's such good singer.. :D

  19. SoulBloodAlchemist

    @DressUpAndKillTheTV You can't forget Voltaire who came before them. Or hell Rasputina. Or even Panic at the Disco! (note Panic! did not come before DD. I was not trying to state that.)

  20. Lucifi Louise

    @Brootalmaniac Lol, I don't know where you live so I can't tell you (I suggest eBay) If you know of any faerie festivals going on in your area, I suggest there. That's where I got mine xD Good luck!

  21. dinotickk

    @ABetterYesterday Hey i'm 15 and i say... up with the dresdens =D, my fav song from them so far is "i want you, but i dont need you" its gotten that hypocritical stance in the sentences that just make you want moar! =P, any who its really good to see i'm not the only wierdo out there >///<

  33. aryllia

    @legionrat *pours gasoline over the comment and sets it on fire*

    Seriously. Stop that, right now. Just about every video I see is spammed with those comments, it stopped being funny months ago. We all understand, you and your likes can't handle opinions that differ from your own, now move on.

  34. Legion Rat

    the like button just told 5 people "missed me"

  35. ImmortalMusic10

    I feel like I can never just listen to one Dresden Dolls song. I always end up listening to like 10 in a row

  36. MadHatter123456

    One of my favorite DD-songs... ah, fuck it, this IS my favorite DD-Song!!

  41. Psychoace

    If you did it, say you did it. If you didn't, suck it up and say you did.

    <3

  42. skyzefawlun

    @mapleloaf67 Real music has no age limit... While I may not have a personal connection to all of the subjects and themes in their particular songs, their work as a whole is something that I have a very deep connection to as it speaks of the shared experience we all have, not just a small demographic, like thugs hanging out in clubs drinking champagne and smacking hoes.

  43. LEBOperk

    beautiful...beautiful...really beautiful...

  44. twilightsymphony

    @NonExistentPatrisha well she does have a rather masculine voice in some of her songs but that is what makes her magnificent

  45. sarafp000

    OMG what did i just find?! LOVES IT

  46. Jaimee B

    @Zwielichtengel >:(

  47. B S

    LOVE <33

  48. addietea

    i like that picture

  49. Jaimee B

    Who killed Amanda Palmer? Hollywood

  50. dzieckolilith

    Well, I like Nina Hagen. She is one of Dark Cabaret singer too, but Emilie is my Master.

  51. dzieckolilith

    I love Emilie and i was on her concert this year. I like Kanon Wakeshima too. ^^

  52. xoruhtra

    I'm just giving these bands a try right now... the girl's voice is so soothing :))

    a very unique band. =]

  53. satouame

    Their music is just awesome. I'd never heard a band that I could say spoke to the soul of me until I first listened to the Dresden Dolls. I still cry when I listen to some of their songs.

  54. Kim Williams

    I love this song!<3

  55. Morna Carrick

    I dont think i've ever loveda band like a i did when i heard the dresden dolls there is just something so astomospheric and funny and charming about there music. It's just one of these gems that will be in your head always <3. I was meant to see Amanda in a concert for my birthday but i was ill with mono was raging.

  56. Gayle1661

    Emilie Autumn and Kerli are amazing And Amanda Palmer of course

  57. Raikua

    Amanda Palmer = Brilliant

  58. plaidrabbit1

    I LOVE Emilie Autumn. Muffins unite!

  59. Ruben Vinke

    Runs in the family is from Amanda Palmer only, not of the band Dresden Dolls :P

  60. DressUpAndKillTheTV

    Not all of the songs have got videos made because The Dresden Dolls arent a very mainstream band.

    And they're not weird, you probably just haven't heard this style of music before, they've brought cabaret back and added their own style onto it, and bands like The Hush Sound have followed =]

  61. Fede Lopez

    I've never heard them... I really liked the song!

  62. sekayujora

    why there arent videos of the songs, theyre only images when i search
    i want the video of the song!!!!!

  63. alexandercamus

    such a great song!!! i think is one of their best!

  64. viciouscabaret72

    "If you did it say you didn't, If you didn't suck it up and say you did OH OH OH"
    That bit is almost too awesome. I'm crazy about this song atm.

  65. Unknown Writer
