"Help Me" as written by and Danny Elfman....
Here you'll find me in between
Heaven and hell my dear where nothings what it seems
Its just as well up here I'm givin' you the creeps
And a farewell kiss to go into the unknown

Saw you standing there
Outside the music hall you come out for some air
Until your curtain call and everyone just stared
When you took the stage that night
Somethings not right

You're up there, took the stairs to the stars all alone
You left all the lights burning but nobodies home
I believe they deceived your tuneful heart to long

And they sing along
Help me, help me won't you?
Sing me, sing me one last song
Help me, help me, somebody help me
Save me from myself

Here I'll find you in between
Heaven and hell again where nothings what it seems
It's just as well my friend
I'm givin' me the creeps
And a farewell to arms and legs and heads and heart

You're up there, took the stairs to the stars all alone
You left all the lights burning but nobody's home
I believe they deceived your tuneful heart to long

And they sing along
Help me, help me won't you?
Sing me, sing me one last song
Help me, help me, somebody help me
Save me from myself
Take me from this hell

And they sing along
La la la la la la la la [x4]

You're up there, took the stairs to the stars all alone
You left all the lights burning but nobodies home
I believe they deceived your tuneful heart to long
And they sing along

Help me, help me won't you?
Sing me, sing me one last song
Help me, help me, somebody help me
Save me from myself

Help me, help me won't you?
Sing me, sing me one last song
Help me, help me, somebody help me (la la la la la la la la)
Save me from myself
Take me from this hell

    General CommentI'm loving the new sound of the Trio. This song kicks ass. I haven't read through the lyrics yet, so I'm not quite sure the meaning of this one, but I love it.

    General CommentIt sounds as if the central character left the world too early and had so much more to give to the world.

    General CommentAfter looking at some of the information on Ian Curtis, I'm inclined to agree, with constant. It sounds like it's written about him.

    General Comment"i believe they deceived your tuneful heart too long" not whatever you have about a tuned heart to loan.

    also, while he may say "dan sing" live (it would be clever), he says "they sing" in the real song each time.

    General CommentI love this song, if the rest of Agony And Irony is as good then I'll be very, very happy.

    General CommentAbout Ian Curtis?

    After Watching Control?

    I absolutely love Alkaline Trio for writing a song about him.

    Specially since i am obsessed with the movie and Joy Division.

    Can't stop listening to it, thank god (ironically) for Alkaline Trio.

    General CommentI'm honestly hoping that the rest of Agony and Irony sounds better than this song. I'm really not feelin' the new sound of Alkaline Trio. They're old stuff is amazing, but I just don't feel the same way about their new stuff.

    "help me help me won't you
    sing me sing me, one last song
    help me help me,
    somebody help me,
    save me from myself"

    Just not the most original or interesting piece of lyrics. They're capable of so much.

    Also, the "la la" chants are completely from their song "we can never break up"

    General Comment"and a farewell to arms, and legs, and heads and all"
    "and a farewell to arms, and legs, and heads and hearts"

    And I agree, they are capable of more then the chorus.
