Dead Here Anyway Lyrics

(Souvenirs of City Life Album - 2003)

Another day is here, but not quite 
I'm reminded of fear on the phone every night 
Hey, baby, anybody ever tell you your bark is worse off than the bite 
Then ends don't bend 
They break without the wrong and right 

So open up your heart and let it out 
Let your mind unwind 
We'll figure it out 
So when you open all the doors 
And see nothing but arrows pointing towards 
A future, tucked behind the clouds 

Chorus: 
'Cause when our sun stops shining our way 
I guess that it's time to get out 
Get out of this place 
'Cause when our sun stops shining our way 
We better turn and run 
'Cause we're dead and gone 
We're dead here anyway 
Dead here anyway 

Oh, Kings and queers and souvenirs of city life 
The skyline resembles chandeliers and colored Christmas lights 
And isn't it funny that the heart of this city 
Has the heart of my life 
She said, "Baby, the nightmares don't have to come every night 
So come on and open up your heart and let it out 
Make your mind shut up 
We'll figure it out" 

So when you open all the doors 
And see nothing but arrows pointing towards 
A sign saying, "Get out now" 

Repeat Chorus 

Losing our light 
Losing our light 
Losing our light 
Losing our light 
We'd better pack our bags and run 
'Cause I don't want to lose the sun 

Repeat Chorus 

I say we turn and run 
Turn and run 
Chasing after the sun 
That shined yesterday 
'Cause we're dead and gone 
We're dead here anyway
