Placebo - Julien Lyrics



The payback is here
Take a look, it's all around you
You thought you'd never shed a tear
So this must astound you, and must confound you
Buy a ticket for the train
Hide in a suitcase if you have to
This ain't no singing in the rain
This is a twister that will destroy you

You can run but you can't hide
Because no one here gets out alive
Find a friend in whom you can confide
Julien, you're a slow motion suicide

Fallen angels in the night
And everyone is barred from Heaven
Just one more hit to make it right
But everyone turns into seven
Now that it's snowing in your brain
Even ten will not placate you
This ain't no killer for the pain
This avalanche will suffocate you

You can run but you can't hide
Because no one here gets out alive
Find a friend on whom you can rely
Julien, you're being taken for a ride

You can run but you can't hide
Because no one here gets out alive
Find a friend in whom you can confide
Julien, you're a slow motion suicide

Slow-motion suicide [x9]

    For me this song is about drugs

    Mikołaj Fidler

    Yeah, there are some references, etc. Julian taken for a ride:
    "The line "you're being taken for a ride" could be a reference to the movie version of Less Than Zero, where Julian (played by Robert Downey Jr) dies of an overdose during a car ride at the end of the movie."

    Siseneg Stam

    @Mikołaj Fidler amazing !
    You're right I never thought about that movie.

  40. heynow1988

    this song is about the dead and the suicide. dont go never for the easy way to live the life, when u feel so down and u cant event walk or get out of ur room. and if u feel that anybody can help u. ask for help to someone who can help .

    follow the light

    but you cant thts the problem

    follow the light

    chill im just fuckin witchu

    heynow1988

    +follow the light i never saw it. but never mind, i wrote it for help people. i tried to killed my self and cut my arms or vains. i used to listen in that time this album in particular. so i know how dangerous is it for someone with my problems

    Midori

    heynow1988
