02. Godspeed

Cities
by Anberlin



 

Burning down neverland (scatter the ashes)
White lines black tar the matches
Is this another death by misadventure
Tell me what you got, what you really got (hey hey!)
Weíll rest in our graves,
Lexington course your veins
Sleepers canít just wake the dead
When needles and lovers collapse on guilty beds

Fall asleep, donít fall asleep
Donít fall asleep

(They lied when they said that the good die young)

THEY LIED WHEN THEY SAID THE GOOD DIE YOUNG!
stay with me, stay with me tonight

Burning down bridges now (scatter the ashes)
Godspeed to all youíre after
Is this a life left just to remember
Tell them who you were, who you really were (hey hey!)
Kill yourself slowly over time, fashion statement suicide
Sheís still asleep in a Chelsea hotel
Bad turns to worse, and the worst turns into hell

Fall asleep, donít fall asleep
Donít fall asleep

(God save the eyes that dim tonight)

THEY LIED WHEN THEY SAID THE GOOD DIE YOUNG!
Stay with me, stay with me tonight

(Christian/Milligan)

Behind the Song:
'This song is about the Ďglamourousí lives of musicians that people seem to put up on pedestal and worship. Why? Sex, drugs, and rock and roll seem to get you to about the age of 27 and then you die. Tragically.

Neverland- I always felt like musicians live in a Peter Pan world, no one ever has to grow up (at least no one wants to, and no one wants them to).

White lines (coke) & black tar (heroin)

Death by Misadventure (Research Brian Jones)

Lexington (From the song ĎIím Waiting for my Maní, a Velvet Underground reference)

Fashion statement suicide- cigarettes

Chelsea Hotel- Sid & Nancy' -- Stephen Christian
