Let's Go!
I kissed the scars on her skin,
I still think you're beautiful
And I don't ever want to lose my best friend.
I screamed out "God you vulture,
Bring her back or take me with her!"


Tear it down,
Break the barricade.
I wanna see what sound it makes,
I hate this flavor with a passion and I fucking hate the aftertaste!

How does it feel
(How does it feel?)
How does it feel well it feels like I'm on fire!
Wake up I know you can hear me!

Make me a promise here tonight,
Love like a tidal wave.
Dreamless in early graves, I never want it to be this way.
The chemicals will bring you home again.
This is it, when it's done we can say that,
When it's sudden death we fight back.

Oh yeah, pretend like I don't entice you,
I've seen you circling the sky above my head,
You traitor!

I will never be taken for granted again,
Keep digging holes in the desert!
Say a prayer for you,
I know that you're in pain, but if we die at the same time does it still scare you?


Make me a promise here tonight (Let's go!),
Love like a tidal wave.
Dreamless in early graves, I never want it to be this way.
The chemicals will bring you home again,
This is it, when it's done we can say that,
Oh my God, we're not gonna make it!

We will bring the tidal wave,
We will bring the tidal wave,
We will bring the tidal wave,
We will bring the tidal wave!

We will bring the tidal wave!
We will bring the tidal wave!
We will bring the tidal wave!
And nothing will remain!

She's mine!
You stay away from her, it's not her time!
'Cause baby I'm the one who haunts her dreams at night,
Until she's satisfied.

Make me a promise here tonight,
Love like a tidal wave.
Dreamless in early graves, I never want it to be this way.
The chemicals will bring you home again,
This is it, when it's done we can say that,
When it's sudden death we fight back!

Go!

Fuck it!

    "i wrote this song for my ex-girlfriend who has been fighting breast cancer. She recently finished her last chemo-therapy treatment and i wrote the lyrics about how proud i am of her for making it through all of the pain and the treatment all on her own. She's the strongest girl i've ever known and i am inspired by her everyday"

    Pretty sure its about vic's ex-girlfriend, he still cares very much for, who has breast cancer and hasn't died from it yet. But that's defiantly what its about.

    I love how Vic is constantly talking to God and even Death itself. When he said "You stay away from her its not her time" he is talking directly to death commanding him to spare his ex-girlfriend. And earlier he is seen calling God a "vulture" because he is just waiting for her to die and take her. This song is packed full of emotion and I absolutely love the story that is told. Even though I have cried listening to this song, it is still my favorite. I would also just like to say that Vic is so caring and his ex-girlfriend so strong. Great song, amazing people.
