Paramore - Anklebiters Lyrics




Why do you care what people think?
Are you hooked up to their leash?
You know anklebiters
Ate up your personality.

Try to remember how it felt
To just make up your own steps
And let anklebiters
Chew up, spit out someone else.

Fall in love with yourself.

Because someday you’re gonna be
The only one you’ve got.
Someday you’re gonna be
The only one you’ve got.

Why you wanna please the world
And leave yourself to drop dead?
Someday you’re gonna be
The only one you’ve got.

What do you actually expect?
A broken mirror to reflect?
You know, anklebiters
Gave you a false perception.

And why do I defend
(C'mon, c'mon) your ignorance?
Oh, why do I defend
(C'mon, c'mon) the state you're in?

You should fall in love
With yourself, oh, again.
Fall in love with yourself.

Because someday you’re gonna be
The only one you’ve got.
Someday you’re gonna be
The only one you’ve got.

Why you wanna please the world
And leave yourself to drop dead?
Someday you’re gonna be
The only one you’ve got.

Anklebiters! Anklebiters!
Someday you’re gonna be alone!
Anklebiters! Anklebiters!

  2. Drew Hender

  3. Charlotte Padero

    Why do you care what people think?

    Are you hooked up to the leash
    You know, anklebiters
    Ate up your personality

    Try to remember how it felt
    You just make up your own sex
    And the anklebiters
    Chew up, spit out someone else

    You fall in love with yourself
    Because

    Someday you're gonna be the only one you've got
    Someday you're gonna be the only one you've got
    Why you want a piece of what I need?
    Just stop to drop dead
    Someday you're gonna be the only one you've got

    What do you actually expect?
    A broken mirror to reflect, you know, anklebiters
    Gave you a false perception

    And why do I defend your ignorance
    And why do I defend the state you're in, you should
    Fall in love with yourself
    All again
    You fall in love with yourself
    Because

    Someday you're gonna be the only one you've got
    Someday you're gonna be the only one you've got
    Why you want a piece of what I need?
    Just stop to drop dead
    Someday you're gonna be the only one you've got

    Anklebiters
    Anklebiters
    Someday you're gonna be alone
    Anklebiters
    Anklebiters

    Underated song, video and album.
    I love paramore in all the ways and really love this album (and this great song). ❤

    Hayley Williams told MTV News that this song came from a period of deep introspection and its subject matter helped frame the entire Paramore album. "The title came first, which never happens, but I just thought, I liked the term 'Anklebiters,' when you're talking about kids or babies," she said.

    The song addresses people who can't think for themselves. Williams told Spin magazine: "To me there was this thread throughout the album of wanting to be able to grow up and move forward. And when you do that in your life, there's always people that are going to try to hold you back. Or they're going to try to tell you, 'You don't need to do this, because this is the right way to go.' Or you don't need to grow up, because this or that. And it's about those people, and it's about not listening to that but listening to your heart, and what do you want out of life? Who do you want to be? Versus all this outside influence that I think we get so caught up in, especially in the age of the Internet and all the different opinions that we hear so loudly every day."

    Brewer's Dictionary of Modern Phrase & Fable defines an ankle-biter as, "a jocular but altogether friendly term for a small child, reflecting the anarchic violence of which such diminutive persons have been deemed capable." The term was first recorded in 1963 in America.

    Williams explained to Kerrang! Magazine the song is about, "embracing who you are, your differences and quirks.
    "Some people wanna pull you down and say you're wrong," she continued. "But you keep fighting and say, 'No, this is who I am.'"

    The song was given a Pac-Man inspired animated video created by Jordan Bruner. Hayley Williams explained that the band felt the need to create a visual for the tune. "We just thought we'd like to release something for that song cause it's become pretty special to us after the last tour," she tweeted.

    So that’s the meaning and facts about this song

    Why do you care what people think?
    Are you hooked up to their leash?
    You know anklebiters
    Ate up your personality

    Try to remember how it felt

    And let anklebiters
    Chew up, spit out someone else

    Fall in love with yourself

    [Chorus]
    Because someday you’re gonna be the only one you’ve got
    Someday you’re gonna be the only one you’ve got
    Why you wanna please the world and leave yourself to drop dead?
    Someday you’re gonna be the only one you’ve got

    [Verse 2]
    What do you actually expect
    A broken mirror to reflect?
    You know, anklebiters gave you a false perception
    And why do I defend your ignorance?
    Oh, why do I defend the state you're in?

    You should fall in love with yourself
    Oh, again
    Fall in love with yourself

    [Chorus]
    Because someday you’re gonna be the only one you’ve got

    [Outro]
    Anklebiters! Anklebiters!
    Someday you’re gonna be alone
    Anklebiters! Anklebiters!

    este vídeo lo vi recién que salio y bueno. Gracias a una amiga que me encontré en xbox que me la recomendó y pues fue extraño por que actualmente la sigo recordando y pareciera que fue un fantasma con la que jugué alguna vez porque ya no hay rastro alguno de ella, Solo me queda esta canción como recuerdo de esos momentos que pase con ella jugando y jugando, chateando y chateando.

    En fin, cosas para pensar.

  24. Minnie

  33. Corey Davis

    My Valentine's Day anthem

  34. ZaSonikku

    best song from their best album

  35. Nook

    If America ever decided to make a trashy slice-of-life anime this has to the theme song.

  36. Naufal F

    2019 ???

  37. Billy Sullivan

    i fucking love you paramore

  38. Billy Sullivan

    some time i feel like this song is a warning

  39. Rob Haskell

    What the actual heccc is the point in 2:19

  40. Rob Haskell

    I think she's saying that although she shook the anklebiters, those guys still went on to bite others. So that kind of feels like a loss. When you have so much power, you should be able to fight the negativity better than others could. Thats a huge burden to put onyourself. At least for half of the anklebiters. The other half made it into peaceful work oxes, which is ideal. I guess the bird is Taylor right and she's the Rose obviously lol look at those clothes lol, and I think the hand would be the farro bros. I mean look at their swag. I honestly don't know where Hailey and them are, but that's what makes the most sense to me when I see it. The hand had dat swag. xD.

  41. Sebastian Duclós

    2019? lml

  42. Sandi Sunday

    just 2:23 ? <<< awesome song but its not enough to me

  43. Muniz Sims

    Paramore isn't emo anymore, deal with it! I love "new Paramore"

  44. Hiperion Del Ebano

    Le encuentro cierta similitud con Los Beatles

  47. Gian Zambrana

    PacMan 2013, still listening on 2018

  48. Jin De Prata

    I can not believe I could find this song just with the phrase "Some day you're going to love someone" and I did not even remember being from Paramore.

  49. ebony b

    "What did we learn today, kids?"
    *"YOU GOTTA DAB ON THEM HATERS!"*

  50. Cup of Matcha

    This song is actually so inspiring

  51. [broken machine]

  52. [broken machine]

    The beginning sounds like Dance, Dance by Fall Out Boy. I love it.

  53. Aj_ loves_harpoons

    this music video is actually satisfying xd

  54. Araci De Aquino Barbosa

    Ms. Pac-Man Versão PARAMORE

  55. Skinny P

    I love this self titled album. it's a combination of everything they've ever done and then some experimentation. It's perfect. Not every song is like Still Into You and Ain't It Fun. Most the songs aren't. I thought that when going into this album and the soon realized this is my favorite album by them. This album really does take you on a journey. @Darth MadV said that I completely agree.

    Geronimo Cat

    True almost all there music is good. Even the songs I thought I didn't like when I go back I end up liking those ones more than the ones I thought were my favorites. When I first heard this album after Bne i was like what the hell is this. Now I easily love this album more than that one

  56. GrojZow11
