The Damnwells Let's Be Civilized Lyrics

There's a groom and a bride in my mind
Sending postcards and memories
There's a wicked witch
Suicide, cigarettes and climbing trees
There's a mountain and a valley and a little girl
Who is something sweet
She's a fortune-teller Sally
I'm a drunken clown, who always falls asleep

I was faking death to wake up new
'Cause I was too afraid to stand in my shoes
I called you on the telephone
Were you home?
It didn't sound like you

Set me up another shot
Close the windows, stop the clock
Let's sing Grecian lullabies
I'm Dionysus in disguise
No one's gonna rescue you
'Cause no one has a fucking clue
So let's be civilized
Let's say 'I love you'

There's a ghost in my seat kissing girls
And using up my stolen charm
He said he'll give it back, he was once an honest man
Before he bought the farm
I was seething with an impious rage
'Cause I was stuck inside a poemless page
I was conquered like the Byzantine on Halloween
And woke up in a cage

Set me up another shot
Close the windows, stop the clock
Let's sing Grecian lullabies
I'm Dionysus in disguise
No one's gonna rescue you
'Cause no one has a fucking clue
So let's be civilized
Let's say 'I love you'

Set me up another shot
Close the windows, stop the clock
Let's sing Grecian lullabies
I'm Dionysus in disguise
No one's gonna rescue you
'Cause no one has a fucking clue

So let's be civilized
Not so petrified
Let's be civilized
Let's say 'I love you'
