lyrics

Even if I've never been safe, I still know how to lie about it
You always have a laugh when I say there's no need to come down
When I come to, you're always pounding my chest 'cause I tested too much of the powder
And rock 'n' roll will save me, when you're not around

Along the line we forgot how to get to our knees, forgot how to lose it
I still hear you in dreams at night chiding me
Do you wanna ossify, some ancient corporate ruin
You don't strike as requiring that sort of equity

Well, all the kids are asleep in the Reichstag
They don't hear the alarm, the lullaby's playing too loud
Before the smoke has filled your lungs, your tongue has come unstuck
You say, “Rock 'n' roll will save you, when I'm not around”

It's too easy to give in to Hell, a place where you can't remember
The dance in your eyes the time that we met
You never thought that you'd get permission to enter
You thought it all day, but you didn't suspect

Like all of the other insanities that you invited
It was my pride and not our love that I wanted to crown
I kept you so close nobody can blame you for being shortsighted
And rock 'n' roll will save you, when I'm not around
