  • Down in the waves
    She screams again
    Roar at the door
    My mind can't take much more
    I could never drown

    They wanna get my
    They wanna get my
    Gold on the ceiling
    I ain't blind
    Just a matter of time
    Before you steal it
    It's alright
    Ain't no blood in my eye

    Clouds covered love's
    Barbed-wire fence
    Strung up, strung out
    I just can't go without
    I could never drown

    They wanna get my
    They wanna get my
    Gold on the ceiling
    I ain't blind
    Just a matter of time
    Before you steal it
    It's alright
    Ain't no blood in my eye

    They wanna get my
    They wanna get my
    Gold on the ceiling
    I ain't blind
    Just a matter of time
    Before you steal it
    It's alright
    Ain't no blood in my eye

    Gold on the ceiling
    I ain't blind
    Just a matter of time
    Before you steal it
    It's alright
    Ain't no blood in my eye Writer/s: Brian Joseph Burton, Daniel Auerbach, Patrick Carney

  • Mark from Toledo, OhThe cover art for the single of this song is an entrance of Rolling Acres Mall in Akron, Ohio, where the band is from.
  • Tom from Milton Keynes, United KingdomSong used Feb/March 2012 in the Cobra Indian lager ad on UK TV- set on a train going through India (presumably) and the association of the gold topped bottles and the gold lager are fairly obvious
