Sit down, call off the cavalry
I'm stealing the jewels
In a slow motion action replay
Bar fight, I invented chivalry
Notch in my bed post
Slow motion action replay.

Sit down, call off the cavalry
I'm stealing the jewels
In a slow motion action replay
Bar fight, I invented chivalry
Notch in my bed post
Slow motion action replay.

Now the fog is rolling in
Bringing us that much closer to a senseless end
Oh please don't get up
I'll get that for you.
It's selfish to say I'll believe when
I believe all these lies
It's been long enough

Don't just lay on the ground, son
Don't just drown in the fountain
And I don't know you, I don't know you
You got stuck preaching action
I fell down using tact, son
And I don't know you, I don't know you

Don't just lay on the ground, son
Don't just drown in the fountain
And I don't know you, I don't know you
You got stuck preaching action
I fell down using tact, son
And I don't know you, I don't know you

Bring back this fight tonight
For all of these lies that I uphold (Don't mind them they can't elope)
For one good note (Leave them off of the great boat)
Bring back this fight tonight
For all of these lies that I uphold (Don't mind them they can't elope)
For one false hope (Leave them off of the great boat)
(One false hope)

Go on and fix your tie
And just lead the line out
Needless to say
I stumble, you play
All night long

Fix your tie and just lead the line out, needless to say
Fix your tie and just lead the line out, needless to say
Fix your tie and just lead the line out, needless to say
Fix your tie and just lead the line out, needless to say
Fix your tie and just lead the line out, needless to say
Fix your tie and just lead the line out, needless to say
Fix your tie and just lead the line out, needless to say
Fix your tie and just lead the line out, needless to say

Bring back this fight tonight
For all of these lies that I uphold (Don't mind them they can't elope)
For one good note (Leave them off of the great boat)
Bring back this fight tonight
For all of these lies that I uphold (Don't mind them they can't elope)
For one false hope (Leave them off of the great boat)

Now you'll find, as I rewind, now you'll find it's not the point
Now you'll find, as I rewind, now you'll find it's not the point
Now you'll find, as I rewind, now you'll find it's not the point
Now you'll find, as I rewind, now you'll find it's not the point

One Love

    General CommentIs it me or can any one else not get over the fact how random and obscure the lyrics in ALL dgd songs,
    its just fucking amazing, if any other band tried to pull it off nowadays, it would fair suck. But in fairness ATD-I and Cap'n Jazz did well at random lyrics in their heyday.

    Also, anyone else just dig the double bass pedal and the fast guitar in this song - the nice breakdown??

    My Opinionthis band is the best band ever.
    everything about it,
    my favorite is the killer guitar.
    drums are sick too.

    General CommentIt's pretty unique.. I mean, it has all the wailing guitars and fast drums and screams..
    But the lead singer's voice is one of the smoothest I've heard.

    The lyrics stump me, though.
