lyrics

Well we tore up the tables and broke out the lights
Got down on the floor to see everything right

I saw what I'd left and I couldn't stay down
I got shaky and scared and dropped what I found

But washed out of all color, the sky was too bright
I fell over backwards and burnt out my eyes

I remember the feeling, the sights and sounds
But the actual words I should've written down

Keep me alive for my blood and not for my skin
Keep me alive for my blood and not for my skin

I swear I'm better than that I just can't seem to stay
In one place long enough to make it okay

I'm trying to polite and keep my distance
But this casual dancing's got my stomach all flipped

Keep me alive for my blood and not for my skin
Keep me alive for my blood and not for my skin

No, I'll go
No, I'll go

I left it boxed in a house - you should burn it to soot
Don't let it sit wet rot till you gotta open it

You can take what you want but I probably pissed on it
Cause my body is going - my mind's got nothing to do with it

If I'm pushing up things tear 'em out from the roots
Who knows what they are - could be dangerous

That girl's got bat-shit eyes like she's won
And I know that she has and I know that I'm done

Keep me alive for my blood and not for my skin
Keep me alive for my blood and not for my skin

Keep me alive for my blood and not for my skin
Keep me alive for my blood and not for my skin

The Dancing Hats is a folk-rock n' roll outfit out of Portland, O.R. and they have the most fun. Forming over a weekend excursion to the 2010 Vancouver Olympics and soon adding anybody they could find (violins! trombones! mandolins!), the group stays up late playing anytime they can and would love to sing for you whenever you would like. ... more
