Underwater Bimbos From Outer Space

  • I want to be dead with my friends
    I want to be dead with my friends
    Wide-eyed, brilliant, tie them in rags
    I want to be dead with my friends
    I want to be dead with my friends

    When the iron sharpens the iron
    When the iron sharpens the iron
    When the iron sharpens the iron
    Sharpens the iron

    I want to be dead with my friends
    I want to be dead with my friends
    A vulgar, loud, unforgettable end
    I want to be dead with my friends

    Let boredom cease the beating of our purple hearts
    Against this, even gods fight violently in vain
    What chance could we have stood?
    We're the last of the lost
    But now we're the first of the fashionably late

    Loved ones decompose
    You'll dance around their bones
    Most of us are holy ghosts
    All of us are holy ghosts

    Loved ones decompose
    You'll dance around their bones
    Most of us are holy ghosts
    All of us are holy ghosts

    We made the scene when we made a scene
    And though it was brief, it meant everything
    Oh what a pity, now they're bound to make us saints
    Oh what a pity, now they're bound to make us saints

    Against this, even boys fight violently in vain
    What chance could we have stood?
    We're the last of the lost
    But now we're the first of the fashionably late

    I refuse to be the only man
    Put to rest in a mass grave
    I refuse to be the only man
    Put to rest in a mass grave
    I refuse to be the only man
    Put to rest in a mass grave

    You were all there with me
    You were all there with me
    You were all there with me Writer/s: Andrew John Williams, Jordan Taylor Buckley, Joshua C. Newton, Keith Michael Buckley, Ryan Kerry Rejan Leger
