Anberlin - Godspeed

Burning down Neverland, scatter the ashes!
White lines black tar that matches.
Is this another death by misadventure?
Tell me what you got, what you really got. [Hey, hey! ]
We'll rest in our graves,
Lexington cross your veins,
Sleepers can't just wake the dead,
When needles and lovers collapse on guilty beds...

Fall asleep...
Don't fall asleep...
Don't fall asleep...
[They lied when they said that the good die young]
They lied when they said the good die young... [Woah-oh oh-oh]
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 you're after,
Is this a life left just to remember?
Tell em who you were, who you really were.
Kill yourself slowly over time,
Fashion statement suicide. [suicide]
She's still asleep in the Chelsea hotel,
Bad turns to worse and the worse turns into Hell.

Fall asleep...
Don't fall asleep...
Don't fall asleep...
[God save the eyes that dim tonight]
They lied when they said the good die young... [Woah-oh oh-oh]
They lied when they said the good die young.
Stay with me, stay with me tonight.

They lied when they said the good die young... [Woah-oh oh-oh]
They lied when they said the good die young.
Stay with me, stay with me tonight.

They lied when they said the good die young... [Woah-oh oh-oh]
They lied when they said the good die young.
Stay with me, stay with me tonight.

This song is about the ‘glamourous’ 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 ‘I’m Waiting for my Man’, a Velvet Underground reference) Fashion statement suicide- cigarettes Chelsea Hotel- Sid & Nancy
