Wombats, The - Tokyo (Vampires & Wolves) Lyrics




We're self imploding
Under the weight of your advice
I wear a suitcase
Under each one of my eyes

Finally I know now what it takes
It takes money and aeroplanes

[Chorus:]
If you love me let me go
Back to that bar in Tokyo
Where the demons from my past
Leave me in peace
(ah ah ah ah)
I'll be animating every night
The grass will be greener on the other side
And the Vampires and Wolves
Won't sink their teeth
(ah ah ah ah)
I'm sick of dancing with the beast

Astrophysics you'll never be my closest friend
I find no comfort in what my mind can't comprehend

Finally I work out what it takes
It takes money and aeroplanes

[Chorus:]
If you love me let me go
Back to that bar in Tokyo
Where the demons from my past
Leave me in peace
(ah ah ah ah ah)
I'll be animating every night
The grass will be greener on the other side
And the Vampires and Wolves
Won't sink their teeth
(ah ah ah ah ah)
I'm sick of dancing with the beast

No matter how much it needs me
Go and follow someone else's lead

[Chorus:]
If you love me let me go
Back to that bar in Tokyo
Where the demons from my past
Leave me in peace
(ah ah ah ah)
I'll be animating every night
The grass will be greener on the other side
And the Vampires and Wolves
Won't sink their teeth
(ah ah ah ah ah)
I'm sick of dancing with the beast

    I love this song but come on this is the wombats their three quirky weirdos I do not believe they’d go out partying all the time if I’m wrong so be it but it just doesn’t feel like them unless it’s supposed to be a parody of how certain bands act in other countries

    #myfirstsong

  85. Bellina Rinda

    My favorite part of this song is 03:12

  86. Cattland

    I went to Tokyo a few months ago and although I tried my best to find a party like the one in the video, I couldn't find it. Instead, I had the most insane party in Osaka. I don't know... maybe I needed more guidance in Tokyo for something like this, but I would recommend to go to Osaka for partying :)

  87. BisonAntiquus

    I’m sorry but did I just see sum fursuit sex?

  88. peter

    holy fuck the nostalgia. I literally remember when this song came out, i had it downloaded on my ipod

  89. Dave not Doug

    This song reminds me of a girl I used to know in Okinawa. Her name was Shazza, and she had a gammy leg, but for a girl with a gammy leg she used to dance better than my dad. He's passed away now. Shazza did have sexual relations with my best friend, Bud, but I forgave her, and I think that is what this song is all about.
