Lyrics

Abra Cadaver

tell me about The Rabbits

...and the stars they still wheel even if we can't explain
With our drunken diagrams scratched in the sand
About life about love about God about man
And how our days will end
Right?


So help me light this bonfire
As our night goes up in smoke
Uh oh
Please let the martyrs spark our souls

This song. This here song had a meaning.
A lesson. Some sort of idealistic existentiality.
A moral about my feelings.
But remember the good times cause they're more fun
We laughed. We yelled.
We did some stupid shit we won't tell
So pull the plug cause we're going home

So help me light this bonfire
As our night goes up in smoke
Uh oh
Please let the martyrs burn our souls

Uh oh Right?

...and if you see our flame rising up toward Heaven
Please say a prayer we're all aboard
Cause our circle's broke
Not sure we’re gonna make it
But with your help we won't be ignored
Son with your help we won't be ignored

You best button your lip if you know what's good
It's important that I'm not misunderstood
My money keeps growing don't shake the tree
That's why they spell subtle with a silent "b"

That's why they spell subtle with a silent "b"
That's why they spell subtle with a silent "b"
It's a shame cuz you always were a friend to me
That's why they spell subtle with a silent "b"

Na na na na na na na na na na na na
Na na na na na na na na na na na na
Na na na na na na na na na na na

Clique

tell me about The Rabbits

I don't wanna be in your clique no more
I don't wanna be in your clique
Tony's lickin honey off the living room floor
and them drinks is making me sick

I don't wanna be in your heart no more
I won't let you into my head
Picking up my shadow off the bathroom floor
I never once heard them words you said

That don't make me wiser
That don't mean you got to go
Down on me. Rise Up
Let's give them tyrants what for

I don't want to sleep in your sack no more
I don't wanna be in your clique
You sweep the honey and the money off the bedroom floor
Lift your pinky when you're turning them tricks

I don't wanna join your club no more
You think the Beatles were the devil's show-and-tell
But if St. Peter dropped the meter on them streets of gold
I'd stab an angel to meet Lennon in Hell

Clown Mouth

tell me about The Rabbits

When the flood flows through your valley
Drowns all that eyes can see
And your first thought isn't safety
It's authenticity
Don't think that I would blame you for your lack of clarity
You hold your sidearm right behind you
And no one rides for free
Rides for free

Stuttering most sentences
Whilst covering the lie
But you'll be walking with your street limp
Cause you sealed your alibi
Black smoke blows from the reservoir
Orange wax drips from the sky
Your guest knows where he's going
And that feeling gets you high
Gets me high

You can see his eyes cold hypnotized
His ears are spilling blood
The butterflies roll through you
As you slowly raise your gun
He keeps his gaze upon you as he drops down in the mud
Whatever lost gets washed away
In this wicked flood
Wicked flood

Now what I hear don't seem to register in my ears
One more beer
So I can get clear

You can see his eyes cold hypnotized
His ears are spilling blood
The butterflies flow through you
As you slowly raise your gun
He keeps his gaze upon you as he drops down in the mud
Whatever lost gets washed away
In your wicked flood

the Company Fire

tell me about The Rabbits

Indian style by the company fire
Eight of us here and seven are liars
Sucking down smoke of our final regression
Heads hanging low as we march to concession

by the way I bought a bike I think you’ll like it ride it like a fire and maybe if you like well me and you could even share a seat together my little lady

tearing up the road until the gravel hits your face explode you stop and then you wonder oh my my my is that all there really was for me

So turn up the left and right sides of your mouth
I know you don’t mean it just swallow your doubt
Choke down the urge to knock out my teeth
Label me your lover then call me a thief

I’d catch you if I could I would I can’t you first I’m lost it hurts from thinking
as I’m starting to think again oh my
it’s a little bit better than walking into this here wall man

there’s a catalyst inside my kiss igniting penicillin
as I’m checking the infection in your booty that I’m fillin
oh wait that’s just mere bravado

Breakdown Breakdown

...And I question your loyalty and it's such a joke
Cause the cold of your royalty swallows me
Swallows me in smoke

So lean on me now and I'll lean on you
Our hunger behind us in all that we do
So cry for me all night and I'll cry for you
Damn I fear loneliness more than I fear you

White lines white lines white lines taking up all my time
And I bet you thought I always talked this fast man
White lines
No I don't No I don't

Well I'd get up if I could I'm stuck on my back
Train whistle blowing and I'm searching for tracks
Distance disGRACED but it doesn't sit well
My feet are all calloused from walking in hell

I'm in hell I'm in hell I'm in hell I'm in hell
I'm in hell I'm in hell I'm in hell

Breakdown Breakdown

...And I question your loyalty and it's such a joke
Cause the cold of your royalty swallows me
Swallows me in smoke

Cross-Hearted Woman

tell me about The Rabbits

Well I once fell in love with a cross hearted woman
And she'll never see me again
She kissed me like she cared then walked up the stairs
No she'll never see me again

Well her daddy he told her, "Don't you ever look back".
So she'll never see me again
He said, "You're far far too sweet to be a pillar of salt".
No she'll never see me again

And I'm trying my best not to cry
Cause I'll never see her again
When the tears don’t come I wonder why
I guess the truth's always cold in the end

Christina tied Robbie to a rock
Now he'll never see her again
She swears she's happy but no no no she's not
And she'll never see him again

And I'm trying my best not to cry
Cause I'll never see her again
When the tears don't come I wonder why
I guess the truth's always sober my friend

Well I stepped into the river as the crowd looked upon
And they told me I had washed all my sins
But I once fell in love with a cross hearted woman
And I ain't never seen her since

Eliza she pulled Daniel's card
And now she'll never see him again
Ashamed of age and wealth but he tried hard
No she'll never see him again

Well I stepped into the river as the crowd looked upon
And they told me I washed all my sins
But I once fell in love with a cross hearted woman
And I ain't never seen her since

No we'll never see her again

Crumpled Paper

tell me about The Rabbits

A three bedroom house with a gas stove and couch
And a gun that fits nicely inside of my mouth
You said it's a shame that it missed my brain
And went through the side of my mouth

The wrecking ball swung to the beat of my drum
I had a pocket of pills, so I swallowed some
But it only felt nice, so not once, but twice
I fucked up taking what's mine

Baby I'm not sure if I can love you anymore
Something came and knocked me to the floor
Crumpled paper cast aside
Unfinished songs too late
It might take some time, but I can wait

I swung my axe and that blade came down fast
But it never delivered a blow that would last
Just chipped away chipped away chipped away chipped away
As the sun beat down upon my face

The splinters got stuck in the whites of my lies
Why pull them out?
No one bothers. Who tries?
"Just chipped away chipped away" is all she replies
You'll never wake up
It's time to open your eyes because

Baby I'm not sure if I can love you anymore
Something came and knocked me to the floor
Crumpled paper cast aside
Unfinished songs too late
It might take some time, but I can wait

And as the ink goes running down the page
My fingers dart away
I spilled my drink for the last time today
My nose is bleeding everywhere
My blood is shot but I don't care
As long as hindsight's never anywhere

It's alright

My nose is bleeding everywhere
My blood is shot but I don't care
As long as hindsight's never anywhere

Dollar Bill

tell me about The Rabbits

Sugar, sugar, sugar can you feel me staring?
My fever says I'm so in love you.
Sometimes I really think you only want my money
I'll give you everything if you just ask.

All I got's one dollar and it's
Rolled up on the counter top
All I got's one dollar and the
808's about to drop.

I hit the ground and I started running.
The neighbors said we sang out of key.
So twist the volume knob to Eleven my friend,
Cause when they shout it makes no difference to me.

I can see you probably know your religion
And don't you know that I swallowed mine (yeah)
So go ahead and shake your halo at me,
Then please step to the back of the line.

Don't want no cookie-cutter
Cracker Jack-off
Only get the quarterback off
(Daughters of the Revolution)
Mushroom Clouds
(But No Pollution!)

The Paper blamed it on a mix of
Soda-pop and coca-cola

Cops found a dead red-headed
LOST ROCK AND ROLLA!

All I Got's One Dolla and it's Rolled Up on Your Daddy's Porch

I'll Be Damned

tell me about The Rabbits/Crockett

Running in circles, I run out of breath.
A Dying Cause son there'll be nothing left.

5 4 3 2 One Foot is nailed to the ground.
I sparked the fire that will burn us both down.

I never thought that I needed
to be forgiven
I never thought that I needed You.

How many apologies do I have to make?
Can't anybody see
That there is more to life than
who you want to be

And I'll be damned
If I let you choose for me

Been holding out on me for reasons unknown.
I bite my fingernails right down to the bone.

Hidden agendas take us both by surprise.
watched the fire die tonight in your eyes.

I never thought that I needed
to be forgiven
I never thought that I needed You.

How many apologies do I have to make?
Can't anybody see
That there is more to life than
who you want to be

And I'll be damned
If I let you choose for me

How many apologies do I have to make?
Can't anybody see
That there is more to life than
who you want to be

And I'll be damned
If I let you choose for me

Optimizer

tell me about The Rabbits

Lost my job today
Work that defines me taken away
Ain't nothing left but stems and seeds upon my tray
But even the rain will shine on me today

You cannot
You cannot get me down
Pressures of this strife I'm living now are six feet under ground
The Walrus lost but Paul ain"t dead
Lest ye forget the words they said

"I wanna hold your hand" through this twisted maze
Fate does not regret the fool he plays
And even the rain will shine on me today

Lost my pride today
Respect I've gathered all these years just thrown away
Ain't nothing left but my broken home in disarray
But even the rain will shine on me today

You cannot
You cannot get me down
Pressures of this strife I'm living now are six feet under ground
The Walrus lost but Paul ain't dead
Lest ye forget the words they said

"It's been a hard days night" and glory fades
The shepherd's flock has gone astray
And even the rain will shine on me today

Na na na na
Na na na na na na na na na
Na na na na
Na na na na na na na na na

Lost my soul today
Pulled the pin and held my ground...blown away
Ain't nothing left but the devil's smile and debt to pay
But even the rain will shine on me today
And even the rain can shine on you

Na na na na
Na na na na na na na na na
Na na na na
Na na na na na na na na na

"I wanna hold your hand" through this twisted maze
Fate does not regret the fool he plays
And even the rain will shine on me today

Shiftplate

tell me about The Rabbits

I never even heard the school bells ring that day
I never listened to a word you had to say
But I got by anyhow
And you're all set anyway

My toes and fingers fell asleep St. Crispin's day
I never made it to the third act of that play
But I got by anyhow
And my heart went that-a-way

And now I'm feeling like dead weight
But you never know
And now I'm feeling like dead weight
But you never know

Every thought is made from purebred Faberge
The leather needle never quite became passé
But I got by anyhow
Another wasted runaway

And now I'm feeling like dead weight
I'm buried in the snow
So now I'm cleaning up my plate
But you never know
Cause no one knows

Ooh la la la, Ooh la la la la

I never even heard the school bells ring that day
I never listened to a word you had to say
But I got by anyhow
And my heart went that-a-way

Smokaholica

tell me about The Rabbits

Been coming to this bar for years
Every tender known my drink
They even sell my brand of cigarettes.

Last time I tried I tried to light up
they just smacked me in the face.
They corralled me in a cage just like a pet.

Well I tried to plead my case
Although I was a bit confused
Perhaps they thought that I was smoking crack.

She just said "Smoking's not allowed
this door anymore.
So make sure you stay twenty meters back"

But I Said:
"Get them smokers back in the bar
I chose the life I'm living
And we've only come so far."

And So Now:
"Get them smokers back on the bar.
The Whiskey's pouring, Beer is flowing
Come Inside!"

So Clap Your Hands and Stomp Your Feet.
And Smoke your 'Bacco, Hell, Smoke your Weed
Raise your glass. Reserve the Right.
The Whiskey's pouring, Beer is flowing, Come inside.

The next time I went to the bar
I kindly steped out back.
All the other smokers came to hide.

Well I like drinking at the bar
I don't know about you.
If you don't like my smoking, step outside.

Proposition, Schmoposition, Eenie Minie Mo
I didn't know I still had a voice.
Next time voting comes around, walk in and check that box.
'Get Out your fucking seat and Make Some Noise!

Raise your fist, cause it's time to fight!

The Whiskey's Pouring
The Beer is Flowing
Come Inside!

Here we are. So we meet again
As the giant sleeps the drills are at an end
So here we stand so tall and true
I can take you there. The rest is up to you.

Here we are. The Earth will sing your names.
Release the Hell inside. I want to see it on your face
So here we stand so tall and true
Steady your hearts and blades.
Your faith will see you through

This travesty is gonna make you bleed
Arise to free your sons tomorrow
Your enemies. You're gonna hear them scream.
You must take their heads then bring them back to me.

Here we are. The Earth will sing your names.
Release the Hell inside. I want to see it on your face

Don't lie to me Don't lie to me
Don't lie to me Your work is numb

This Old Curse

tell me about The Rabbits

Well she's calling out to an empty package inside of her purse
Keeps aching and shaking she's got that unquenchable thirst
Mumbles to no one my god this time feels like the worst
I'm beside of myself cause it takes one to know this old curse

This old curse
This old curse
It ain't easy to spot but believe me I know
This old curse

He moved from the country when things had begun to get tough
I leant him my six-string cause damn it boy he had it rough
Fingers unsteady his body is starting to hurt
I'm sick to myself cause it takes one to know this old curse

This old curse
This old curse
It ain't easy to spot but believe me I know
This old curse

Faint mellow pulse
Voice in my head
Telling me stories of skins that I've shed
I write my blues in black ink boy
When I speak it turns red
red Red RED!


Well this little light of mine still keeps the flame it held first
Itching my brainstem in places that don't even work
On fake suicide watch
So-called friends are all ran by the church
So I sigh to myself cause it takes one to know this old curse

This old curse
This old curse
It ain't easy to spot but believe me I know
This old curse

It ain't easy to spot but believe me I know
This old curse

To The End

tell me about The Rabbits

It's just us against the world
Still you're my little girl
We're running out of things to say
This old curse gets in the way

Do you feel it? Can you feel it?
Cause I cannot feel a thing

Love fades away
Love fades away
Love fades away in time

I see it coming but the smoke gets in my eyes
No one knows us like we know our alibis
You remember when this all began?
You were the only one I thought would be there to the end

What's happily ever after all?
One for one and none for all
The beads of sweat run down my spine
The golden boy has lost his shine

Do you feel it? Can you feel it?
Cause I cannot feel a thing

Love fades away
And I'll fade away
We all fade away in time

The wheels are turning and the pain is rough today
Our book is burning watch the pages blow away

I don't want to die all by myself
I'm tired of living life like someone else
I don't want to die here by myself
I'm sick of living life like someone else
I don't want to die
I don't want to die
I don't want to die

Do you feel it? Can you feel it?
Cause I cannot feel a thing

Love fades away
And I'll fade away
We all fade away in time

I see it coming but the smoke gets in my eyes
No one knows us like we know our alibis
You remember when this all began?
You were the only one I thought would be there to the end
