"Nerve Gas" as written by and Bella/beaham-powell Russell....
Standing here
In the ballroom as
The dancers twirling everything
To the marching drums
Lying here
In your yard alone as all the
Old war pilots have gone
And oh this little bird heart got so cracked
But they'll sleep deep tonight
Oh yeah, won't they, for sure
While we'll just be sleep walking
These dirty streets

Yah, better eject
Oh as we are, nerve gas over us
Just leave the nerve gas on

Lying here in your yard alone
As all all the paratroopers fall
And oh this little bird heart got so cracked

I want to sleep deep tonight
Oh yeah, can't we, for sure
Just let us be tonight

Yah, better eject
Oh as we are, nerve gas over us
Yah, leave the nerve gas on

So just sleep deep tonight
Oh yah, can't we, for sure
Just let us sleep tonight

    General Commentagain a reaccuring idea in kh's songs...i believe this is also about drug use, but a lot about suicide. wanting to "sleep deep" is also a way of saying you dont want to remember, you dont want to deal. leaving the "nerve gas" on would imply that they dont want to "sleep deep" they really just want to die, and they no longer want to feel anything..because feeling is too much

    General CommentThis song sounds like it's from another planet. It's um... mystical, and whatnot. Words cannot properly describe this song. It's just... marvelous, and lovely.

    General CommentDrug use, loneliness, sadness, desperation, loss of faith and hope...these are the meanings (emotions) that I take from the song. Absolutely wonderful song...like americanmusic said above me, words cannot properly describe this song.

    General CommentThis song is just... I dunno. It's the embodiment of awesome. I can't even think of what to say (which is a surprise).

    'It's how this little bird heart got so cracked' - Is one of my all time favorite Kill Hannah limes.


    BTW, it goes:

    'Lying here, in your yard alone
    as all the paratroopers drop
    it's how this little bird heart got so fucked'


    I like it better because, in all their songs (beside Welcome to Chicago) there isn't much cursing. You expect him to say 'cracked' so that line catches you completely off guard. -^ o^-

    There are a few more mistakes, too. @ w@

    'So why can't we just carry on?' - Goes at the end of the song.
