about

It's the Song of the Damn Hell Ass Summer from the Hell Yeah Babies.

lyrics

Blow the candles out
I don't even wanna see your face no more
I refuse to be a sad disgrace no more
I don't even wanna try
I was so devout
I was dedicated to your cause for sure
Blood was rushing I was mad and armed for war
I would set the world alight


But you couldn't fight for me
You'd rather wait and see
How long I'd stay content to be your soldier

So let slip your dog of war
Hang my leash on the door
Let the revolution work your will
If that's all I'm good for

Here among the poor
Sad despicable oppressive misinformed
Must be hard for you to bite your tongue secure
In the knowledge that you're right
And everyone is wrong, you know the truth
You decide what's problematic and uncouth
You're the voice of the dramatic tumblr youth
And you're marching in tonight


I'm not qualified to stand
Your second in command
I can only be a crying shoulder

So let slip your dog of war
Hang my leash on the door
Let the revolution work your will
If that's all I'm good for
So let slip your dog of war
Won't serve another tour
Let the revolution foot the bill
If that's all I'm good for

I believe in all the things that you believe
But you don't seem to think you need
Compassion for your enemy
Your enemy
And everyone’s your enemy

So let slip your dog of war
Hang my leash on the door
Let the revolution work your will
If that's all I'm good for
So let slip your dog of war
Won't serve another tour
Let the revolution foot the bill
If that's all I'm good for

about

The Hell Yeah Babies New York, New York

The Hell Yeah Babies are a big movie theater soda that you poured a pint of whiskey into and brought into a midnight showing of Mad Max: They're loud, they're fun, they're smarter than they look. Or sound. Or act. They're a four piece Rock 'n Roll band from Astoria, New York with that garage-glam power-pop thing that you like. ... more
