Manchester Orchestra - The Moth Lyrics




I want it all, I want it free
But nobody's responding
The last thing that you heard was an inebriated slur
You can crash here all you want, but you don't live here anymore

There's a way out
There's a way in
There's a way out
There's a way in

Forced myself to take a different name
Buried with metonymy
Decide for me
Throw the man you used to be away
Bury him with rivalry entirely

My entire life you've been obsessing with the light
The closer that you get, the further up you've got to climb
You wanna hear it hurt, you wanna feel it when he dies
If you walk that path alone you've got to look him in the eye

There's a way out
There's a way in
There's a way out
There's a way in

Forced myself to take a different name
Buried with metonymy
Decide for me
Throw the man you used to be away
Bury him with rivalry entirely

Forced myself to take a different name
Buried with metonymy
Decide for me
Throw the man you used to be away
Bury him with rivalry entirely

"What about our future?"

    Nice song👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻

  2. Jorge Pérez

    Normal people singing for normal people. I love them and the way they make me feel. Enormous discover.

  3. Jorge Pérez

    Por culpa de "The Silence" y este "The Moth", he tenido que comprar su discografía.

  4. Jonathan Bradshaw

    How have I never heard of this band? So glad I landed here. Stunning!

  5. Artur Moreira

    when in Portugal????

  6. Brave the Royals

    Really, really great

  7. etiquettefiend

    How only 80k views?

  8. Dandemonium D

    Insanely good. To have the confidence to make a live performance their official video speaks volumes.

  9. snakey973

    they remind me of the mystical Other Lives crossed with the raw power of Thrice, what a combination!!

    Jonah McGarva

    snakey973 I’m glad I’m not the only one who hears Other Lives.

    This band is like if Other Lives, Silversun Pickups, War On Drugs and Bon Iver were in a blender.

  10. housesspeak

    WHAT ARE THE BACKGROUND LYRICS i've been so unsuccessful decrypting them ;_;

  11. Joshua Simpson

    Does anyone else think the key change doesn't fit the song?

  13. Roberto Martínez

    Necesito el vídeo con subtítulos en español jajaja

  14. Patrick Dalton

    ... absolutely amazing ... 2 thumbs way up !

  15. owenjftw1

    This sounds great. Well done

  16. Alexis L.

    His voice <3

  17. mathrawker lastname

    How is this regarded as indie rock? This is sell out stadium rock at its worst.

    owenjftw1

    mathrawker lastname ...moron

    mathrawker lastname

    owenjftw1 boy, you sure put me in my place. Ouchies.

  18. Kaleb Ryan

    Love the timing change ups.. heard this song on the radio, my brain lost it's shit..

    "WTF IS THIS... Tool fucked Radiohead.. had a love child, had Muse raise it. "

    But seriously, beautiful. Listened to the rest of the album. A real journey.

    Evan Urena

    Honestly, some of the style of the riffs made me think of Lethean by Katatonia.

  19. meme frog

    where was this filmed at?

  20. Riddled Rhythms

    Wow that is an fantastic upload. I know I am making very different music. Although I love what you are doing! ✌️ 🤘

  21. Андрей Сергеевич

    Офигенная песня, с сумасшедшей энергетикой, даже музыканты пошли в разнос! Пожалуй лучшая песня за последнее время! Ждём вас в Украине! We are waiting for you in Ukraine!

  22. biscuitheadfighter

    what about her future?

  23. Jacob Estes

    It's incredible they can play this live with no drummer.

  24. Мария Кондратьева

    That’s unbelievable!

  25. Eric Laurendeau

    I've listened to these guys all day long. ALL FREAKIN DAY (and I just discovered them today).

    Jesse Mole

    and a year later?

  26. Rebecca

    This is the best song I’ve heard so far in 2018 (on ALT Nation). I’ve only heard The Gold before this; now I’m going to delve into more of their music... ❤️

    Paola Miano

    Rebecca me too!! alt nation has paved way for so many cool artists even tho MO isn’t old. like yungblud!! have you heard him on alt nation?? alt nation also was my gateway for my newfound addiction for grouplove

    Joe Justice

    I've seen MO 3 times now - they put on a completely overwhelming live show. Andy's voice pierces right through your heart.

  27. John Barbour

    Just heard this track on the radio, killer! Going to be checking out more of their material

  28. Jake

    Tim Very is such a masterful drummer. Perfect style. Perfect touch. He’s a breath of fresh in terms of originality.

  29. erik costello

    Do I sence a MEW influence here in music and lyrics, MEW sung of moths trying and dying to escape years before this, but this still rocks and is totally awesome!!

    Joe Justice

    Man, could you imagine seeing MO and Mew play on tour together? Add in The Joy Formidable, and I could die happy.

  30. James Garrett

    Is this real life ?

  31. Angela Maria

    Read the description now I want to buy the album 😍

  32. Steven McTigueq

    This is absolutely incredible

  33. Patrick Chole

    I fell in love with Swiss Army Man’s soundtrack, but Manchester never quite did it for me-this album tho....fuckin SO goddamned good.

  34. Red Peacock

    this only has 12,000 views.

    Nicholas Taylor

    Red Peacock it's a fucking shame

    Red Peacock

    Joebob Johnson yes it is, my friend... rock on & merry Christmas

  35. sicboy13

    One dislike? I feel sad for that person.

  36. Boele Gerkes

    That was totally amazing!

  37. Chris Blazosek

    this...is...so...fucking...godly

  38. Renaldo Matadeen

    Silversun Pickups would be proud.

    Marco B

    First time I heard The Moth I thought it sounded extremely similar to a Silversun Pickups song on a number of levels.

    Word Unheard

    That's exactly who I thought of, when I heard this song. This is the best song Silversun Pickups never made.

    Word Unheard

    Also, The Wolf sounds like a song Silversun Pickups would kill to make. I love, love, love Silversun Pickups, but they'll never be in the same league as Manchester Orchestra. Then again, there's no battle going on to win. They've both won me over 100%.

    T-roy

    I actually saw them with Silversun pickups

    Dual Citizen

    I'm strongly convinced they'd toured together back in the day. Wouldn't be surprised they've influenced each other.

  39. Andrew Romero

    I was at the show in Raleigh, NC. It was a perfect show!

  40. narferman

    First to find, last to find out?

  41. edgardo gregorini

    This is great

  42. drummerboyrocks

    as a newcomer to this band...I bought 'A Black Mile To The Surface' without having heard anything by them previously, purely on a hunch that I should and I would like it...turns out it's the best album I've bought in at least 10 years....love them :)

    Mr Robot

    drummerboyrocks new comer?! Had you not heard of them before ? Just curious. Glad you found them! I had friends who introduced me like 8 years ago. Just wait till you see them play “Where Have You Been” live if you haven’t yet. Life changing.

    Mary L Nelson

    I'm new to them as of earlier this month and agree that this is their best album. There are fantastic songs throughout their work, but this album really flows.

    Richard Sylvanus

    Thanks all for info. New to them also the past year. Retired now so trying to catch up on more music. Been listening to music since the womb (thanks Mom!) Close to the 2020s already and the technology for music is unbelievable.

    Jorge Pérez

    I'm with you, but what a bad sound quality the album has

  43. Chris Kyle

    Saw you guys for the 7th time this year in SLC. As always a beautiful show! You guys always put on the best shows!

    Hod Franko

    Ah, couldn't be more peanut butter jealous!

  44. Dominic Jimenez

    at 4:05 does anyone else hear "what about the future?" or "what about her furure?"

    Julius Dale

    SCRDYCAT sounds like “What about our future?” To me

    Dominic Jimenez
