Lyrics Edit

Living in hysterical hills

Dying down in cliche canyon
Funny Lucas is fighting
Tiny little misunderstandings
It's not funny that you used my name
So you could get another prescription
Living in hysterical hills
Dying down in cliche canyon

Get out of the canyon
Travel to the euphoric heights
They throw such killer parties
Everybody gets pretty nice
People start touching people
People that they don't even like
We get out of the canyon
When we hike up to the euphoric heights

Goin' on a hike
We're trying to reach the peak of the euphoric nights
And that's right
We do it almost every night

We come out from the mountain
With a fond farewell from our hosts
They throw such killer parties
Everybody gets pretty close
I only know three sure things
The father, son and holy ghost
We look off at the mountain
At the bloodshed down below
There's blood down in the valleys

We come in to the prairie
Waiting out in the heat
A couple motels and a couple saloons
They can eat a couple of weeks up
I saw a small town parade and the lead majorette
She made me feel all weak in the knees

Hot shot in the city in the middle of the prairie
Waiting out in the heat

Waiting out in the heat
Cos you can't get to heaven from the cliche canyon
You get tired when you're halfway up the mountain

Goin' on a hike
Trying to reach the peak of the euphoric heights
That's right
We do it almost every night

When we get off everything's soft
Everything's just kind of floating
And everything is sparkling and everything's soft
Everything's just kind of floating

When we get off everything's soft
Everything's just kind of floating
And everything is sparkling and everything's soft
Everything's just kind of floating

We were hanging at a rock and roll club
It was painted just like hell
The bar was plywood painted black
They have skull mugs up on the shelves
They throw such killer parties
But some nights you don't feel so well
But you shouldn't be the singer in a be yourself band
If you don't want to be yourself

Analysis Edit
