Back to The Phoenix lyrics

The Phoenix (VEVO Presents: Live in London)

Put on your war paint

(Verse 1)
You are a brick tied to me that's dragging me down
Strike a match and I'll burn you to the ground
We are the Jack-o'-lanterns in July
Setting fire to the sky
Here, here comes this risin' tide so come on

Put on your war paint

Crosswalks and crossed hearts and hope to die
Silver clouds with grey lining

(Pre-chorus)
So we can take the world back from a heart attack
One maniac at a time we will take it back
You know time crawls on when you're waiting for the song to start
So dance along to the beat of your heart

(Chorus)
Hey young blood doesn't it feel like our time is running out
I'm gonna change you like a remix
Then I'll raise you like a phoenix
Wearin' our vintage misery
No, I think it looked a little better on me
I'm gonna change you like a remix
Then I'll raise you like a phoenix

(Verse 2)
Bring home the boys and scrap, scrap metal the tanks
Get hitched make a career out of robbing banks
Because the world is just a teller and we are wearing black masks
"You broke our spirit," says the note we pass

(Pre-Chorus)
So we can take the world back from a heart attack
One maniac at a time we will take it back
You know time crawls on when you're waiting for the song to start
So dance along to the beat of your heart

(Chorus)
Hey young blood doesn't it feel like our time is running out
I'm gonna change you like a remix
Then I'll raise you like a phoenix
Wearin' our vintage misery
No, I think it looked a little better on me
I'm gonna change you like a remix
Then I'll raise you like a phoenix

Put on your war paint

(Bridge x4)
The war is won before its begun
Release the doves
Surrender love

(Chorus x2)
Hey young blood doesn't it feel like our time is running out
I'm gonna change you like a remix
Then I'll raise you like a phoenix
Wearin' our vintage misery
No, I think it looked a little better on me
I'm gonna change you like a remix
Then I'll raise you like a phoenix
