American Aquarium – Burn.flicker.die lyrics
[Verse 1]
Dollar bill prescriptions in the bathroom stall
Red-headed women and alcohol
Say it ain't so, say it ain't last call
A whiskey on the rocks and Adderall
A whiskey on the rocks and Adderall

[Chorus]
We're no different than the neon lights
When you turn us on we stay up all night
We do what we can, we put up a fight
Then we burn too long, we flicker and die

[Verse 2]
It's nights like these that the drugs don't work
It's gettin' in the way instead of pickin' me up
I wish my addictions didn't mean so much
But we all can't be born with that kind of luck

[Verse 3]
You can try but you won't fix what's wrong with me
Every night I'm my own worst enemy
I'll find a way to quit when they bury me
'Cause I can't turn down the drinks when they're free
No you can't turn down when the drinks are for free

[Chorus]
We're no different than the neon lights
When you turn us on we stay up all night
We do what we can, we put up a fight
Then we burn too long, we flicker and die

[Verse 4]
Every girl in that bar looked like nineteen sixty-five
With her sailor tattoos and her drawn-out eyes
Every now then she still crosses my mind
And by every now and then I mean most of the time
By every now and then I mean all of the time

[Chorus]
We're no different than the neon lights
When you turn us on we stay up all night
We do what we can, we put up a fight
Then we burn too long, we flicker and die

[Outro]
We burn too long, we flicker and die
We burn too long, we flicker and die
We burn too long, we flicker and die
We burn too long, we flicker and die
We burn too long, we flicker and die
We burn too long, we flicker and die
We burn too long, we flicker and die
We burn too long, we flicker and die
We burn too long, we flicker and die
We burn too long, we flicker and die
We burn too long, we flicker and die
We burn too long, we flicker and die
