Toys In The Attic

Album: Toys In The Attic (1975)
  • In the attic lights
    Voices scream
    Nothing's seen
    Real's a dream

    Leaving the things that are real behind
    Leaving the things that you love from mind
    All of the things that you learned from fears
    Nothing is left for the years

    Voices scream
    Nothing's seen
    Real's a dream

    Toys, toys, toys in the attic
    Toys, toys, toys in the attic
    Toys, toys, toys in the attic
    Toys, toys, toys in the attic

    Lights
    Voices scream
    Nothing's seen
    Real's a dream

    Leaving the things that are real behind
    Leaving the things that you love from mind
    All of the things that you learned from fears
    Nothing is left for the years

    Voices scream
    Nothing's seen
    Real's a dream

    Toys, toys, toys in the attic
    Toys, toys, toys in the attic
    Toys, toys, toys in the attic
    Toys, toys, toys in the attic Writer/s: JOE PERRY, STEVEN VICTOR TALLARICO

  • Brian from Paris, TxThis song and this whole album kicks a$$!
  • Homer from Springfield, KyI always thought this was about literal toys in a literal attic. I guess I haave some Toys in my Attic.
  • Sam from Hipsville, CaPerhaps one of THE Best studio albums ever produced! Can remember when this came out, the follow-up of coarse to 'Get Your Wings'... and just totally blew me away. Virtually timeless as well, it sounds as fresh today as it did then.
  • Tom from Robesonia, PaREM did a good cover of this song.
  • Steven from Land O Lakes, FlThis could also be about changing from a child to a adult
  • Michelle from Bristol , PaYou need to see aerosmith play this live. The album recording is great but it doesn't even compare to how they do it live!!
  • Jason from Denver, CoThis song should have been called "Toys and the Addict".On the basis of TOYS=Drugs and ADDICTS= Aerosnith in the 70's and part of the 80's.
  • B-man from Detroit, MiI've seen them open a concert with this song on a stage thrust using just the basic instruments....completely mind blowing!!
  • Ozzi from Brookhaven, Payea this song rocks, the whole album rocks
  • Larry from Knoxville, TnThe most underrated Aerosmith song ever!
