Eels - Rusty Pipes Lyrics



Rattle on the rusty pipes
Hit 'em hard, and hit 'em bright and clear
And make a noise, so everyone cannot mistake it's you
And let 'em know just what it's like
When you're not alright

Pray to god it won't get worse
That you'll be riding in a hearse to this
The party that you don't want to be ever invited to
But you'll be goin' anyway
However much you pray

Define a way, you'll find a way
No matter what I say

Rattle on the rusty pipes
Wake 'em up, give them a fright
They can't just shake off like a scary dream
They have most every night
Don't even try, I can't be saved
I'm beautiful and brave

    ***LYRICS***

    Rattle on the rusty pipes
    Hit 'em hard, and hit 'em bright and clear
    And make a noise, so everyone cannot mistake it's you

    And let 'em know just what it's like
    When you're not alright

    Pray to god it won't get worse
    That you'll be riding in a hearse to this
    The party that you don't want to be ever invited to

    But you'll be goin' anyway
    However much you pray

    Define a way, you'll find a way
    No matter what I say

    Rattle on the rusty pipes
    Wake 'em up give them a fright
    They can't just shake off like a scary dream
    They have most every night

    Don't even try I can't be saved
    I'm beautiful and brave

  60. Wendy Scheiman
