#1

“Trash Bat”

Pulp in the slick
And you’re all I take to bed to read with me
Pulp in the slick
And you’re all I take to bed with me to

Once more with a smile
Broken teeth and bloody eyes
In my (mean light), my, my, my trash bat
Once more with a smile
Broken teeth and empty eyes
In my (mean light), my, my, my trash bat

Flies or the flames
Wear no halo round my head, oh blessed be
Flies or the flames
Wear no halo round my head, oh blessed be

Once more with a smile
Broken teeth and bloody eyes
In my (mean light), my, my, my trash bat
Once more with a smile
Broken teeth and empty eyes
In my (mean light), my, my, my trash bat

Keep it clean
Keep it clean for the camera
In my mean light
Keep it clean
Keep it clean for the camera
In my mean light

Once more with a smile
Broken teeth and bloody eyes
In my (mean light), my, my, my trash bat
Once more with a smile
Broken teeth and empty eyes
In my (mean light), my, my, my trash bat

“Break Angels”

I’m the young father of every great boy
Don’t let them catch you in my sights
Who’s seen my father sees nothing at all
I saw my father, he’s blinding

Over time, pretty lies
Break angels, break angels

On the holy night, no end of day
I felt the light, I lie awake
On the holy night, no end of day
You are the light, I am the way

I’m the young father of every great boy
Don’t let them catch you in my sights
Don’t say my father took any cheap whore
In me, my father’s still fighting

Over time, pretty lies
Break angels, break angels

On the holy night, no end of day
I felt the light, I lie awake
On the holy night, no end of day
You are the light, I am the way

Over time, pretty lies
Break angels, break angels
Oh, can you perfectly recite
So I may hear those pretty lies?
Break angels

On the holy night, no end of day
I felt the light, I lie awake
On the holy night, no end of day
You are the light, I am the way
On the holy night, no end of day
I felt the light, I lie awake
On the holy night, no end of day
You are the light, I am the way

“Back Into The Sun”

None of them
Some of us
Heard what you said
With the dust
In your lungs
And we hush
Show you my face

Each of us could respond to
Calls from great beyond

Our love must return
All has undone
Our love must return now
Back into the sun

Overnight
With restrain
Whispering strange
Still remains
Mispronounced
Each of us
Screaming with pride
In our hearts

In our hearts
And our hearts could soon respose to
Show much anyone

Our love must return
All has undone
Our love must return now
Back into the sun

Our love must return
All has undone
Our love must return now
All has undone
Our love must return now
Back into the sun

"The Missing Man"

Lights wanted, wailing we
Wept high as the sky
And the sky
Beloved, weeping eye
Gazed high in the sky
And the sky cried back

There’s a missing man
Easy to find (Easy to)
There’s a missing man
Easy to find, with eyes like mine

I’ve wanted orphan tears
Like mine, raise the tide
Raise the tide
Once-wishing, wistful eye
Sang high, raise the tide
'Til the sea’s mouth dried

There’s a missing man
Easy to find (Easy to)
There’s a dying man
Easy to find, with eyes like mine

Sickened by these sharks
Sickened by these crimes
Sickened by these eyes
Quite resembling mine

There’s a missing man
Easy to find (Easy to)
There’s a dying man
Easy to find, with eyes like mine

Also, dare I say that Break Angels has a touch of “Maria and the Diamonds” in Davey’s voice? … I am not complaining. I love it.


#3

I’ve listened to the EP at least 10 times now. Amazing lyrics, as always. However, in “Break Angels”, I’m pretty sure during the chorus he says, “Over time, pretty rhymes break angels”. Though, every lyrics site that I’ve seen says “pretty lies”. But if you listen to it closely, the difference is pretty clear. There are probably also other parts that whoever wrote those got wrong. Just saying, because it’s been bothering me what the correct lyrics might be. AFI songs deserve to be represented correctly.


#4

According to the lyric video you are right! It is ‘pretty rhymes’ not ‘pretty lies’ good catch!


#5

Haha the lyrics are so wrong. It really amazes me how even people whose native language is English have trouble understanding what Davey sings


#6

Alright so after reading the official lyrics it’s safe to say that the lyrics posted on the OP are hysterically hilarious


#7

Okay, so here are the lyrics from the lyric sheet:

Trash Bat

Pulp in the slick and you’re all I take to bed to read with me Pulp in the slick and you’re all I take to bed to … Once more with a smile, broken teeth and bloody eyes in my mean light, my trash bat. Once more with a smile, broken teeth and empty eyes in my mean light, my trash bat. Flies or the flames wear no halo round my head oh blessed be. Keep it clean for the camera

Break Angels

I’m the young father of every great fall. Don’t let them catch you in my sight. Who’s seen my father sees nothing at all. I saw my father. He’s blinding. Over time pretty rhymes break angels. Oh. No holy night no end of days. I fed the light. The light you ate. Not a holy night. No end of days. You are the light. I am the way. I’m the young father of every great fall. Don’t let them catch you in my sight. Don’t say my father took any cheap fall. In me my father is still fighting. Over time pretty rhymes break angels. Oh can you perfectly recite so I may hear those pretty lines break angels?

Back Into the Sun

None of them, some of us, heard what you sang with the dust in your lungs. And we hushed so you might name each of us who respond to calls from fraying wires. Oh I must return, all has undone. Oh, I must return. Now, back into the sun. Overnight. Thinly strained. whisper and trade stolen names. Mispronounced each of us, screaming with pride and I hush because who responds to charm much anymore?

Get Dark

I am not the father. I am not the son. I’m only a maker of useless things undone. I am not of mother earth nor morning son. I’m only a maker of useless things undone. Here’s one: Who do you think you are? Do you think you can get dark? I gave you faith and devotion, I gave you stranger days, you said you’d love me anyway. You gave back the emotion on the blank exchange. You said my love is like your faith. Tell me who you think I am. Tell me do you think I can get dark? Tell me do you think I am? Tell me do you think I can get dark?

The Missing Man

Once wanted, wailing we wept high as the sky and the sky… beloved, weeping I gazed high and the sky…cried back. There’s a missing man, easy to find, with eyes like mine. Unwanted, orphaned tears like mine raised the tide. Once wishing, wistful. I sang high. Raised the tide 'til the seas mouth dried. There’s a missing man, easy to find, with eyes like mine. Something about his shouts, something about his cries, something about his eyes quite resembles mine. There’s a dying man, easy to find, with eyes like mine

Please pardon any punctuation mistakes, if you have the record you know the black on dark gray makes it really hard to discern the punctuation. Also pardon any typos :slight_smile:

Wow, thank you so much for going through the hassle of typing them out!!


#9

You’re welcome! I usually write them out anyway to help myself memorize them, so it wasn’t that much of a hassle. Trying to read the punctuation though…tough on the black on dark gray!
