"Love Is to Die" as written by and Emily Kokal Jenny Lee Lindberg....
Your eyes stare
Am I humble as I go
I’m holding in tight
To something long as I go
Am I humble as I go
I found a way
To look towards this day
But it all hooked up
This could only go one way
I’m not alive, I’m not alive without you
I’m not alive, I’m not alive without you

Love is to die, love is to not die, love is to dance
Love is to dance
Love is to die, love is to not die, love is to dance
Love is to dance

All on my own, it's confirmed
There's no world to compromise
Tonight, you really see nothing of this girl
They work, they don’t know the roots behind
‘Cause I got a knife to cut out the memories
So carefully, too carefully, it’s not necessarily
To be so dark
Got to give in, got to give in
Learn to align, last time older
Got to give in, got to give in
Learn to the five

Love is to die, love is to not die, love is to dance
Love is to dance
Love is to die, love is to not die, love is to dance
Love is to dance

Love is to die, why did you not die, why don’t you dance
Why don’t you dance and dance

    Song MeaningThis song is about the ups and downs of love, but in a very optimistic fashion. It's about the give and take, the compromises, the valleys, the highs.

    The reason I think it's overall very optimistic is because of the last line "Love is to die, why did you not die", as if to say, "yes, that hurt, but we're okay, we didn't die and we love each other so...let's just dance."

    The one line that bugs me that I have no clue about is "learn to the five"

    General Comment"Learn to the five" is a direct relation to the five human senses, sight, hearing, smell, taste, and touch. Our eyes, ears, nose, mouth, and skin. I guess you guys can relate that to the overall song meaning yourselves.

    General CommentThese lyrics are so horribly wrong, it's ridiculous. Many lyric sites have the wrong ones, but here is a site that has the correct lyrics including " Got to give in, Got to give in, Alert to the night, The last time I alter my mind, I give in Got to give in To the fight" Hope that clear up the song a bit for all you people trying to figure out the "five" part which she doesn't sing.

    Song FactThe link I posted earlier copied wrong, here is the correct one.. genius.com/… and here are the correct lyrics:

    All on my own
    Here I stand
    Am I humble am I ghost
    I'm on a limb to climb
    To something lawless I hope
    Am I humble am I ghost
    I'll find a way
    To look towards this day
    Got it all hooked up
    This could only go one way
    Oh oh oh oh oh
    I'm not alive
    I'm not alive enough

    Love is to die
    Love is to not die
    Love is to dance
    Love is to dance and dance

    All on my own
    It's confirmed
    There's no world to compromise
    You really see nothing of this girl
    They look, they don't know
    The roots behind
    Cuz I've got a knife
    To cut out the memories
    So carefully
    To carefully
    It's not necessary
    To be so dark

    Got to give in
    Got to give in
    Alert to the night
    The last time I alter my mind
    I give in
    Got to give in
    To the fight

    Love is to die
    Love is to not die
    Love is to dance
    Love is to dance and dance

    Love is to die
    Love is to not die
    Love is to dance
    Love is to dance and dance

    Love is to die
    Why don't you not die?
    Why don't you dance?
    Why don't you dance and dance?

    General CommentIt's a total longshot, but the "learn to the five" could be a reference to the enneagram type five, which fits with Warpaint in some ways.

    General CommentIt should be noted that the lyrics at the end should be "Love is to die, why don't you not die, why don't you dance", as opposed to "why did you not die"
