The Killers Lyrics


It had to happen eventually. When you survey previous
exports from the city of Las Vegas: an assortment of
suspect hair metal bands; one-hit wonder Toni Basil; err…
Andre Agassi… It was only ever a matter of time that a
group would emerge from Sin City to wipe the slate
ceremoniously clean, giving the inhabitants of that Nevadan
outpost some fresh hope and an escape from their culturally
underperforming past.

It’s evolution, see. The unique habitat in which our
subjects developed, their native characteristics shaped by

Review about The Killers songs
Jesus on the cross | Reviewer: anonymous
    ------ About the song All These Things That I've Done performed by The Killers

Even though I'm not particularly religious it occurred to me years later that this song sounds like it comes from Jesus while on the cross, both talking to himself to keep his courage up and to humanity to learn from his sacrifice:

(When there's nowhere else to run
Is there room for one more son
One more son)
The world has gotten bad enough "nowhere else to run" that there is one more of God's "sons", (Jesus) that will join it.

(If you can hold on
If you can hold on, hold on
I want to stand up, I want to let go)
Jesus telling himself to not give up even though it is difficult and also for his sacrifice to inspire future people.

(You know, you know - no you don't, you don't)
While he has lived as a normal person among people (you know), he is the only one without sin (you don't)

(I want to shine on in the hearts of men
I want a meaning from the back of my broken hand )
He wants his sacrifice to mean something, direct reference to his broken hand (part of the crucifixion)

(Another head aches, another heart breaks
I am so much older than I can take)
The weight of his sacrifice and his divine nature are weighing on him. Also, the blood drain and slow asphyxiation from crucifixion would likely cause headaches to say the least.

(And my affection, well it comes and goes
I need direction to perfection, no no no no )
A confession from him that internally his faith wavers sometimes as well, no more so than his final test.

(Help me out
Yeah, you know you got to help me out
Yeah, oh don't you put me on the backburner
You know you got to help me out )
A simultaneous plea to his Father to help him end the pain but also to humanity to not let his sacrifice be in vain, that people need to help themselves as well.

(And when there's nowhere else to run
Is there room for one more son
These changes ain't changing me
The cold-hearted boy I used to be)
Repeat of first stanza, and defiantly declaring that even this brutal death isn't going to change his divine nature. "Cold hearted boy" may be a stretch, referring to the missing period in his life from the Bible, possibly when he was younger and trying to deal with the revelation that he was holy and eventually had to be sacrificed.

(Yeah, you know you got to help me out
Yeah, oh don't you put me on the backburner
You know you got to help me out
You're gonna bring yourself down
Yeah, you're gonna bring yourself down
Yeah, you're gonna bring yourself down)
Repeat of the plea to be helped, but toward the end he reminds himself that he will bring himself down (come back down from Heaven after dying to be resurrected).

(I got soul, but I'm not a soldier)
He is fighting for humanity, but not in a physical way as a soldier. His weapon is his soul.

(Yeah, you know you got to help me out
Yeah, oh don't you put me on the backburner
You know you got to help me out
You're gonna bring yourself down
Yeah, you're gonna bring yourself down
Yeah, you're gonna bring yourself down)
Repeat of the above stanza, but I like to think this time instead of asking for help from God and reassuring himself he has accepted his fate and is now speaking to people and asking them to live better lives, to not forget his example, and to remember to not fall back into sin.

(Over and again, last call for sin
While everyone's lost, the battle is won)
He and the criminals crucified with him are about to die, but in doing so they will ascend to heaven and triumph over the sins of humanity with absolution.

(With all these things that I've done
All these things that I've done
(Time, truth, hearts))
A final reminder to remember his teachings, most importantly his final lesson (the sacrifice for mankind) and what he has given (time on Earth away from his Father, the truth about sin and forgiveness, and the heart to sacrifice for all the sinners)

(If you can hold on
If you can hold on)
With his final breath not asking anything from himself, but still encouraging and inspiring future generations to fight the good fight.


Anyway, just my two cents!

    ------ About the song Romeo And Juliet performed by The Killers

This song is so sad...I cried the first time I listened to it. The chorus was the killer for me and now I can't help but not listen to it after my tearful stage. I sing or listen to it at least once a week.It just hits me really deep for some reason. It's a beautiful song :)

    ------ About the song Sweet Talk performed by The Killers

I still don't get the meaning (actually, i speak spanish). But the first thing that caught my attention was the peaceful wave, that atmosphere that Brandon's voice offers. Just relaxing and so beautiful.

    ------ About the song Mr Brightside performed by The Killers

it's about a guy who likes a girl. they flirted; they kissed. she's with another guy. so he's singing about this girl and how he can't have her. It was only a kiss but he's fallen in love with her. He can never. sad.

    ------ About the song Mr Brightside performed by The Killers

I think they broke up but then he realized he should've stayed with her but now she is seeing other guys to try to get over him and he thinks she doesn't care so he's also pretending not to care by saying "coming out of my cage and I been doing just fine" but he's really jealous that she "doesn't love him anymore"

    ------ About the song Somebody Told Me performed by The Killers

This a real good song. It expresses the way American culture has lived it's better times through the music of our time. At the end, the songs make us remember our times. Just like if some songs were made to interpret our feelings through music. Gender is the last thing that matters. In my humble opinion, of course.

Soldier does not equal solder | Reviewer: Please read a book
    ------ About the song All These Things That I've Done performed by The Killers

In response to a review high up on the page (ABC 4/4/11).... You say that "he must be saying soldier as to melt two pieces of metal together" or some such nonsense.

The word soldier refers (as a noun) to an individual in the military or one wih similar attributes, and as a verb it can mean perservere. The other word you refer to has no i in it. It is solder, and its pronunciation rhymes with "fodder" - the l l in solder is silent.

It is irresponsible to publicly deconstruct language without a basic understanding of it.

    ------ About the song Goodnight, Travel Well performed by The Killers

I just lost a close friend of mine ... he was such a great guy ... I wish I've never turned him down ... I wish I've told him how much I cared about him ....I still can't believe he is gone.

Rest in peace W.A.G
