Choke, tried to wash you down with something strong.
Tried, but the taste of blood remains
(of blood remains, of blood remains)
Cold, empty mattresses and falling stars,
My, how they start to look the same.

So keep in happiness and torture me while I,
Tell you let's go in style.
A million hooks around a million ways to die.
Darling, it's cold outside.

No, no more eyes to see the sun (to see the sun),
You slide into bed while I get drunk.
Slow conversations with a gun
Mean more than I've ever said to anyone, anyone

So keep in happiness and torture me while I,
Tell you let's go in style.
A million hooks around a million ways to die,
Darling, let's go inside, it'll be alright.

But last night,
You said you ended up in Palm Springs dancing on tables.
Almost fought some bitch at the club (yeah!),
Got kicked out of your hotel and lost your shoes.

Well fuck, what am I supposed to be impressed?
You're just another set of bones to lay to rest.
I guess it's time to say goodnight,
Hope you had a really good time, good time.

But I will soon forget the color of your eyes
And you'll forget mine

So keep in happiness and torture me while I,
Tell you let's go in style.
A million hooks around a million ways to die,
Let's go outside, it'll be alright.

But last night,
You said ended up un Palm Springs dancing on tables.

    To me, I think this song means something that anyone can connect to. I think in this context, it's supposed to be a break-up song, but, it can be taken any other way, for example, bullying. Talking to the gun would be thoughts of suicide, and sliding into bed while I get drunk are dark thoughts getting to you at bad times. But, Eventually, whoever or whatever happened to you, you'll soon forget and they'll forget about you. I don't know, but that is how I always interpreted the song.

    At the end of evey relationship theres that sadness that bring s you down and start thinking to yourself " what did i do for this to end so badly". You try to give your best but sometimes your partner get tired of you or have a giant whole where there heart should be.

    “I do a lot of writing while driving at night. During the time that I was at home writing lyrics for the album, I went on a few camping trips by myself along the coast. This song came to me while I was driving. It’s mostly wandering thoughts about my relationship with this girl back home. She sent me a blacked out drunk text once about some crazy party she was at, and it made me all over-protective and bitter that I wasn’t there. The title came from one of my favorite movies “Wayne’s World II.”

    And no. the song that you're talking about is "I Don't Care If You're Contagious"

    A break-up song, of course. Empty mattresses. I will soon forget the color of eyes. You slide into bed while i get drunk. Slow conversations a gun mean more than i've ever said to anyone.
