Dead Here Anyway

Appearing On:

Souvenirs of City Life

Lyrics:

Another day is here, but not quite
I’m reminded of fear on the phone every night
Hey, baby, anybody ever tell you your bark is worse off than the bite
Then ends don’t bend
They break without the wrong and right

So open up your heart and let it out
Let your mind unwind
We’ll figure it out
So when you open all the doors
And see nothing but arrows pointing towards
A future, tucked behind the clouds

Chorus:
‘Cause when our sun stops shining our way
I guess that it’s time to get out
Get out of this place
‘Cause when our sun stops shining our way
We better turn and run
‘Cause we’re dead and gone
We’re dead here anyway
Dead here anyway

Oh, Kings and queers and souvenirs of city life
The skyline resembles chandeliers and colored Christmas lights
And isn’t it funny that the heart of this city
Has the heart of my life
She said, “Baby, the nightmares don’t have to come every night
So come on and open up your heart and let it out
Make your mind shut up
We’ll figure it out”

So when you open all the doors
And see nothing but arrows pointing towards
A sign saying, “Get out now”

Repeat Chorus

Losing our light
Losing our light
Losing our light
Losing our light
We’d better pack our bags and run
‘Cause I don’t want to lose the sun

Repeat Chorus

I say we turn and run
Turn and run
Chasing after the sun
That shined yesterday
‘Cause we’re dead and gone
We’re dead here anyway
