"Get Trashed" as written by Brandon Flowers, Dave Brent Keuning, Mark August Stoermer and Ronnie Jr. Vannucci....
Sitting here on the bed,
Trying to clear my head,
But Brooke you just won't budge,
So I look back instead,
Why'd you go away?
Useless when I say,
Hey,
Baby I'll be the best
'Cause I'm a jealous mess,
So wash your hands from all this dirt,
And take my words for what they're worth,
Baby I'll be the best,
But you stand to protest,
And my stomach has been so abused,
Your confusions got me so confused,
But everything will be alright
If I get trashed tonight.

Sitting here on the bed,
Trying to clear my head,
But Brooke you just won't budge,
So I look back instead,
Why'd you go away?
Useless when I say,
Hey,
Baby I'll be the best
'cause I'm a jealous mess,
And my stomach has been so abused,
Your confusions got me so confused,
But everything will be alright
If I get trashed tonight.

    General Commentbrandon sounds so miserable when he sings this song. it sounds like he's got a hangover! he's trying to put everthing out of his head, but brooke (the girl he liked) is just stuck in his brain and won't budge. I think it's about this guy who really liked a girl and told her he'd be the best but she went off with some other bloke (so he's a jealous mess) and it's doing his head in so he just goes out every night and gets totally trashed because it numbs the pain.

    General Commenti agree with fallen angel...i don't much like this song, because brandon sounds so whiny and the whole sound is just...i don't know. it seems like they were going for the same effect as "everything will be alright" and it just didn't come it right. still the lyrics are catchy. they could make this a good song if they wanted...

    General CommentYeah that weird percussion starts to 'grate' after a while, I wish it was slightly quieter. But it grows on you nevertheless, that whole jealousy thing really shows fallen angel nailed it.

    PS imagine if you were actually the girl Brooke (if thats her real name). How cool would that be?! But then again, she let him get away, haha!

    General Commentif the itunes thing didn't work for you, here's a clip: clearingmusic.com/lizardking/shop/samples/…

    The first time I heard the clip i wanted to cry, it was SUCH a disappointment. Most of the Killers' B-sides are WONDERFUL but this is just annoying. I can only hope that the rest of the song is some how miraculously better. And that Brandon and the gang made this a B-side for another country b/c they were trying to keep it away from their american fans.

    Everything Will Be Alright was my favorite song ever for a while. I have no idea why they recorded this..........
