  • Stranded in this spooky town
    Stoplight is swaying and the phone lines are down
    Floor is crackling cold
    She took my heart, I think she took my soul
    With the moon I run
    Far from the carnage of the fiery sun

    Driven by the strangle of vein
    Showing no mercy I'd do it again
    Open up your eyes
    You keep on crying
    Baby I'll bleed you dry
    Skies are blinking at me
    I see a storm bubbling up from the sea

    And it's coming closer
    And it's coming closer

    You, you shimmy-shook my boat
    Leaving me stranded all in love on my own
    Do you think of me
    Where am I now
    Baby, where do I sleep?
    Feels so good but I'm old
    Two thousand years of chasing taking its toll

    And it's coming closer
    And it's coming closer

    And it's coming closer
    And it's coming closer Writer/s: Caleb Followill, Jared Followill, Matthew Followill, Nathan Followill

  • Bigbadboodoodad from GeorgiaThis song is an ode to my days I would do heroin. Chasing the strangled vein. It showed no mercy. I’d do it again. I open my eyes and I see the beautiful face of heroin bleeding me dry as I cry. She would leave me stranded all alone. It’s better now that I’m old… Heroin Addict Legacy Song….

  • Rick from Landrum, ScI thought it was Bible prophecy. Storm bubblin' up from the sea... Anyways, a fantastic song.
  • Joel from Columbia, ScIt would be a good song for True Blood or the Lost Boys.
