Lyrics: “Painkillers” – The Strike

I watch your friends
At table three
Drinking away their jealousy

I watch your brother
Trying to hide
A case of wandering eyes

And your dad in the back is spending money that he don’t have
And your cousin in the front is spending time with another man

And they’re begging for painkillers
So we play the songs from when they were young so they won’t remember
That they’re begging for painkillers
So we play the songs from when they were young and we try to remember
We’re playing the painkillers

Get on your feet
Let’s start pretending
We’ll be the soundtrack for the scene

Where reality
Plays the enemy
Cuz we’re barely hanging on to the dream

Cast fate as the love that we’re fighting for
We have it all and could still use a little more

And they’re begging for painkillers
So we play the songs from when they were young so they won’t remember
That they’re begging for painkillers
So we play the songs from when they were young and we try to remember
We’re playing the painkillers

Tonight we’re gonna dance
Tonight we’re gonna dance our pain away
Tonight we’re gonna dance
Tonight we’re gonna dance our pain away
Tonight we’re gonna dance
Tonight we’re gonna dance our pain away
Tonight we’re gonna dance
Tonight we’re gonna dance our pain away
Tonight we’re gonna dance
Tonight we’re gonna dance our pain away
Tonight we’re gonna dance

Cuz they’re begging for painkillers
So we play the songs from when they were young so they won’t remember
That they’re begging for painkillers
So we play the songs from when they were young and we try to remember
We’re playing the painkillers

Tonight we’re gonna dance
Tonight we’re gonna dance our pain away
Tonight we’re gonna dance
Tonight we’re gonna dance our pain away
Tonight we’re gonna dance
Tonight we’re gonna dance our pain away
Tonight we’re gonna dance
Tonight we’re gonna dance our pain away
Tonight we’re gonna dance
Tonight we’re gonna dance our pain away
Tonight we’re gonna dance
