Friday Lyrics Mash: Dog Days Are Chop Suey!

Can you hear the horses?
You wanted to
The dog days are over
You wanted to
In my self-righteous suicide
The dog days are done
I cry when angels deserve to die
The dog days are done
You can’t carry it with you if you want to survive

Leave all your love and your longing behind
Run for your children, for your sisters and brothers
So you better run
Coming towards her stuck still no turning back
Run for your children, for your sisters and brothers
In my self-righteous suicide
You wanted to

Run fast for your mother, run fast for your father
Father, father, father, father
The dog days are over
You can’t carry it with you if you want to survive
The dog days are over
I don’t think you trust

Struck from a great height by someone who should know better than that
And washed it away down the kitchen sink
I cry when angels deserve to die
The horses are coming
She hid it ’round corners and she hid it under beds
The dog days are over
Why’d you leave the keys upon the table?

Why have you forsaken me?
In your thoughts forsaken me
Father, into your hands I commend my spirit
So you better run
She killed it with kisses and from it she fled
Hide the scars to fade away the shake-up
With every bubble she sank with her drink
Happiness hit her like a bullet in the back
Grab a brush and put a little make-up

Father, into your hands
I cry when angels deserve to die
You wanted to
You wanted to
Except everything you had and what was left after that too, oh

You wanted to
You wanted to
The dog days are done
In your eyes forsaken me
‘Cause here they come

In my self-righteous suicide
Happiness hit her like a train on a track
Grab a brush and put a little make-up
Why’d you leave the keys upon the table?
The horses are coming
You wanted to

Hide the scars to fade away the shake-up (hide the scars to fade away the…)
The dog days are done
In your heart forsaken me, oh
The dog days are over

Why’d you leave the keys upon the table?
Trust in my self-righteous suicide
Hide the scars to fade away the shake-up (hide the scars to fade away the…)
Run fast for your mother, run fast for your father
I cry when angels deserve to die
Here you go create another fable
I cry when angels deserve to die
Wake up (wake up)
Why’d you leave the keys upon the table?

‘Cause here they come
I don’t think you trust
Leave all your love and your longing behind
‘Cause here they come
Grab a brush and put a little makeup
The dog days are done
And I never wanted anything from you

Wake up (wake up)
Can you hear the horses?
Here you go create another fable
In my self-righteous suicide
Can you hear the horses?
Grab a brush and put a little make-up
Hide the scars to fade away the shake-up
