Menzingers, The - Black Mass Lyrics




I was staring through the stained glass
Into the procession of a black mass
Oh how the subject at the altar wants their life back

The view from here to there's a lot like wilting flowers
It's bored beyond repair and unfit for an altar
It's strange relating with the lamb to the slaughter

But hey, do you really want to throw it away?
Do you really want to throw it away?
I'd do anything to make you stay

We used to only take the back roads
But now we found a distance shorter
You used to call me darling
Now you prefer more formal
We used to get high and stare at the moon
And wonder how long it would take to walk to
But now that's like the distance between me and you

But hey, do you really want to throw it away?
Do you really want to throw it away?
I'd do anything to make you stay

For just a little, just a little bit longer
For just a little, just a little bit longer
For just a little, just a little bit longer
For just a little, just a little bit longer

    I was staring through the stained glass
    Into the procession of a black mass
    Oh how the subject at the altar wants their life back

    The view from here to there's a lot like wilting flowers
    It's bored beyond repair and unfit for an altar
    It's strange relating with the lamb to the slaughter

    But hey, do you really want to throw it away?
    Do you really want to throw it away?
    I'd do anything to make you stay

    We used to only take the back roads
    But now we found a distance shorter
    You used to call me darling
    Now you prefer more formal
    We used to get high and stare at the moon
    And wonder how long it would take to walk to
    But now that's like the distance between me and you

    But hey, do you really want to throw it away?
    Do you really want to throw it away?
    I'd do anything to make you stay

    For just a little, just a little bit longer
    For just a little, just a little bit longer
    For just a little, just a little bit longer
    For just a little, just a little bit longer

    Lyrics

    I was staring through the stained glass
    Into the procession of a black mass
    Saw how subject at the altar wants their life back
    The view from here to there's a lot like wilting flowers
    It's bored beyond repair and unfit for an altar
    It's strange relating with the lamb to the slaughter

    But hey, do you really want to throw it away?
    Do you really want to throw it away?
    I'd do anything to make you stay

    We used to want to take the back roads
    But now we found a distance shorter
    You used to call me darling
    Now you prefer more formal
    We used to get high and stare at the moon
    And wonder how long it would take to walk to
    But now that's like the distance between me and you

    But hey, do you really want to throw it away?
    Do you really want to throw it away?
    I'd do anything to make you stay

    For just a little, just a little bit longer
    For just a little, just a little bit longer
    For just a little, just a little bit longer
    For just a little, just a little bit longer

  8. Jerry Hernandez

    I freaking fell in love with this band I didn't know existed. Man I have been missing out

  9. DihStyle69

    We used to get high and stare at the moon
    And wonder how long it would take to walk to
    But now that's like the distance between me and you

    DihStyle69 exactly the feeling this gave me. Started thinking about this line then about to cry because of how true it is.

    Man, these guys have proven that they can do sentimental, slow songs on their past albums, but the slow songs on this record really just...suck, comparatively. Which sucks, because the bigger songs on this record like Lookers, Tellin' Lie, After The Party, and Thick As Thieves absolutely rip.

  11. Cameron Ratliff

    This is surprisingly nostalgic for me for some reason. These guys are awesome!!

  12. Nick Eldred

    these guys probably have sore arm muscles from constantly dropping panties for hours on end

  13. Josh Bell

    this sounds like a shitty old death cab for cutie b-side

  14. Rodlin Von-Hugenstine

    This is what they play when they fuck your wives

  15. Lamarsh67

    Goddamn these dudes know how to heart wrench.

  16. Jeremy P

    Ya know, I'm usually a sucker for cornrows and manicured toes but this song just makes me feel so much more than that. 🙂

  17. Jake Jones

    MENZINGERS....PLEASE come to HONG KONG!!!

  18. Bailasaurus_ Rex

    I can't thank you guys enough for this album!!

  19. Joseph Wendell Miller

    I hope this plays at every middle school dance from now to infinity.

    Nikos Bak

    J.W. Miller best comment ever

  20. fay settembre mae

    favourite on the album so far.

  21. Jake Fitz

    These guys always hit me in feels I didn't know I had.
