Foo Fighters - Medicine At Midnight Lyrics






Making A Fire

Na na, na-na-na, na, na
Na-na-na, na, na, na-na-na, na
Na na, na-na-na, na, na
Na-na-na, na, na, na-na-na, na

I've been waitin', elevatin', hanging on a line
Hate to say it your new favorite's going out of style
Threw away those broken heroes, they're just wood and wires
Hallelujah, spread the news, but don't believe the hype

Alright
Are you afraid of the dark?
I know a place we can start

But if this is our last time
Make up your mind
I've waited a lifetime to live
It's time to ignite
I'm makin' a fire

Na na, na-na-na, na, na
Na-na-na, na, na, na-na-na, na

I was baited when I said I'd never tell a lie
Luck be damned I took a stand and finally hit my stride

Bye bye
Are you afraid of the dark?
I know a place we can start

But if this is our last time
Make up your mind
I've waited a lifetime to live
It's time to ignite
I'm makin' a fire

Na na, na-na-na, na, na
Na-na-na, na, na, na-na-na, na

Are you afraid of the dark?
I know a place we can start, yeah

Na na, na-na-na, na, na
Na-na-na, na, na, na-na-na, na
Na-na-na-na, na na, na-na-na, na, na
Na-na-na, na, na, na-na-na, na

So if this is our last time
Make up your mind
I've waited a lifetime to live
It's down to the wire

This is our last time
I've made up my mind
I've waited a lifetime to live
It's time to ignite
I'm makin' a fire

Na na, na-na-na, na, na
Na-na-na, na, na, na-na-na, na
Na-na-na-na, na na, na-na-na, na, na
Na-na-na, na, na, na-na-na, na

Shame Shame

If you want to
I'll make you feel something real just to bother you
Now I got you
Under my thumb, like a drug, I will smother you
I'll be the one
Be the moon, be the sun
Be the rain in your song
Go and put that record on
If you want to
I'll be the one
Be the tongue that will swallow you

Shame, shame
Shame, shame
Shame, shame
Shame, shame

Another splinter under the skin
Another season of loneliness
I found a reason and buried it
Beneath a mountain of emptiness
Oh, oh oh, oh, oh oh

Shame, shame
Shame, shame

Who? What? (Shame)
Where? When? (Shame)
Just move along, nothing wrong (shame)
'Til we meet again (shame)
I'll be the end (shame, shame)
I'll be the war at your door (shame)
Come and let me in (shame)
I'll be the one (shame)
Be the moon, be the sun (shame)
Be the rain in your song (shame)
Go and put that record on (shame)
If you want to (shame, shame)
I'll be the one (shame)
Be the tongue that will swallow you (shame)

Another splinter under the skin
Another season of loneliness
I found a reason and buried it
Beneath a mountain of emptiness
Oh, oh oh, oh, oh oh

Shame, shame
Shame, shame
Shame, shame
Shame, shame
Shame, shame
Shame, shame
Shame, shame
Shame, shame

Another splinter under the skin
Another season of loneliness
I found a reason and buried it
Beneath a mountain of emptiness
Oh, oh oh, oh, oh oh

Shame, shame
Shame, shame
Shame, shame
Shame, shame

Cloudspotter

Big baby running high
Hope it don't sting when the feeling dies
I got sweet dreams, tucked in tight
Silver screen sister in a suit and tie
Two lovers sick and tired
Standing in the mirror it's my good side
Match made in heaven, show me the light
Burn the night down like a house on fire
Cloudspotter (cloudspotter)
Cloudspotter (cloudspotter)
Burn the night down like a house on fire
Cloudspotter
Cloudspotter

Calling on someone else's dime
Put your two cents where the sun don't shine

Swing, swing guillotine queen
Swinging from the left to the right
Bang, bang, bang, you're so mean
Go and look good, go and look good
Swing, swing guillotine queen
Cut me back down to size
Bang, bang, bang, you know what I mean
Go and look good, go and look good
Cloudspotter

Head ringing in the dead of night
Just a pair of lovesick parasites
Put me on hold, hold on tight
Everything's wrong when you've got no right
Cloudspotter (cloudspotter)
Cloudspotter (cloudspotter)
Everything's wrong when you've got no right
Cloudspotter
Cloudspotter

I need to know, but I don't ask why
Refuse me while I kiss the sky

Swing, swing guillotine queen
Swinging from the left to the right
Bang, bang, bang, you're so mean
Go and look good, go and look good
Swing, swing guillotine queen
Cut me back down to size
Bang, bang, bang, you know what I mean
Go and look good, go and look good
Cloudspotter
Cloudspotter

I need to know, but I don't ask why
Refuse me while I kiss the sky

Swing, swing guillotine queen
Swinging from the left to the right
Bang, bang, bang, you're so mean
Go and look good, go and look good
Swing, swing guillotine queen
Cut me back down to size
Bang, bang, bang, you know what I mean
Go and look good, go and look good
Cloudspotter

Waiting On A War

I've been waitin' on a war since I was young
Since I was a little boy with a toy gun
Never really wanted to be number one
Just wanted to love everyone

Is there more to this than that?
Is there more to this than that?
Is there more to this than that?
Is there more to this
More to this, more to this than
Just waitin' on a war?
Just waitin' on a war?

Every day waitin' for the sky to fall
Big crash on a world that's so small
Just a boy with nowhere left to go
Fell in love with a voice on the radio

Is there more to this than that?
Is there more to this than that?
Is there more to this than that?
Is there more to this
More to this, more to this than
Just waitin' on a war?
Just waitin' on a war?

Just waitin' on a war for this and that
There's got to be more to this than that
Just waitin' on a war for this and that
There's got to be more to this than that

(Oh, oh)

I've been waitin' on a war since I was young
Since I was a little boy with a toy gun

Is there more to this
More to this, more to this than
Just waitin' on a war?
Just waitin' on a war?

Just waitin' on a war for this and that
There's got to be more to this than that
Just waitin' on a war for this and that
There's got to be more to this than that
Just waitin' on a war for this and that
There's got to be more to this than that
Just waitin' on a war for this and that
There's got to be more to this than that

'Cause I need more
Yeah, I need more
Just waitin' on a war
Just waitin' on a war
Yeah, I need more
(For this and that)
(There's got to be more to this than that)
Yeah, I need more (just waiting on a war)
(For this and that)
(There's got to be more to this than that)
(Just waiting on a war)

Medicine At Midnight

Say a prayer, close the light, thumb upon a scale
The pillow is cold, that ship has sailed
Time has run the river dry, dry as a twisted trail
Into the bone, I'm into it

Ever get the feeling nothing else will do
I could hear you singing, painting her blue
Was the joke revealing, did you write your name?
On a dirty ceiling I can't explain

I need medicine at midnight
But it ain't no cure
Medicine at midnight calling
But it ain't no cure
I may be sick but you know I'm yours

I remember dancing hard under the dead moon
Howling with you howling

Ever get the feeling nothing else will do
I could hear you singing
I can't explain

I need medicine at midnight
But it ain't no cure
Medicine at midnight howling
But it ain't no cure
I may be sick but you know I'm yours

Rain on the dance floor, back against the ropes
Rain on the dance floor, back against the ropes
Rain on the dance floor, back against the ropes
Rain on the dance floor, back against the ropes
Rain on the dance floor, back against the ropes

Medicine at midnight
But it ain't no cure
Medicine at midnight howling
But it ain't no cure
I may be sick but you know I'm yours

Rain on the dance floor, back against the ropes
Rain on the dance floor, back against the ropes

No Son Of Mine

No son of mine will ever do
The work of villains, the will of fools
If you believe it, it must be true
No son of mine, no son of mine

No son of mine will ever need
To beg forgiveness, no wicked deed
Head full of evil, heart full of greed
No son of mine, no son of mine

Here we are, living dead
Hand to God with one foot in the grave
Age of lost innocence
Don't forget what your good book says

No son of mine
No son of mine
No son of mine
No son of mine

No son of mine will ever be
Under the power vested in thee
March into slaughter down on his knees
No son of mine, no son of mine

Here we are, living dead
Hand to God with one foot in the grave
Age of lost innocence
Don't forget what your good book says

No son of mine
No son of mine
No son of mine
No son of mine, oh

No son of mine will ever say
Words of illusion, oh, this I pray
Heretofore taking my name in vain
No son of mine, no son of mine

Here we are, living dead
Hand to God with one foot in the grave
Age of lost innocence
Don't forget what your good book says

No son of mine
No son of mine
No son of mine
No son of mine
No son of mine
No son of mine
No son of mine
No son of mine, oh

Holding Poison

I got this thing and I've been taking it out on you
Taking it out on you, oh you
Like a machine that's always breaking down on you
Breaking down on you, so true

I spin around, around, around
Spin around, around around
Spin around, around
Out of the blue

Holding the poison down
Holding the poison down
Something to drown you out
I'm holding the poison down
You know I want what I want, I get what I get
I know what I need, I know what I said
Holding the poison down
Holding the poison down

I get the feeling there ain't nothing that I can do
Nothing will get me through, so blue
Sometimes I dream, I can dream, I can dream
And then I bleed, and I bleed, and I bleed
I get the feeling that there's nothing that I can do

I spin around, around, around
Spin around, around, around
Spin around, around
Out of the blue

Holding the poison down
Holding the poison down
Something to drown you out
I'm holding the poison down
You know I want what I want, I get what I get
I know what I need, I know what I said
Holding the poison down
Holding the poison down

Stand around, around, around
Stand around, around, around
Stand around, around
Out of the blue

Holding the poison down
Holding the poison down
Something to drown you out
I'm holding the poison down
You know I want what I want, I get what I get
I know what I need, I know what I said
Holding the poison down
Holding the poison down

Chasing Birds

Chasing birds to get high
My head is in the clouds
Chasing birds to get by
I'm never coming down

My heart is six feet underground
The road to hell is paved with good intentions
Dark inventions of mine
The road to hell is paved with broken parts
Bleeding hearts like mine

Chasing birds through the sky
And deep into the black
Chasing birds, say goodbye
I'm never coming back

Here comes another heart attack
The road to hell is paved with good intentions
Dark inventions of mine
The road to hell is paved with broken parts
Bleeding hearts like mine

Chasing birds to get high
I'm never coming down

My heart is six feet underground
The road to hell is paved with good intentions
Dark inventions of mine
The road to hell is paved with broken parts
Bleeding hearts like mine

Chasing birds
Chasing birds

Chasing birds
Chasing birds

Love Dies Young

Love dies young and there's no resuscitation
Once it's done, no regeneration
It's a losing game that'll make you play
Your hand against your chest
Love dies young

Love dies young and there's no reanimation
Once it's gone, no regeneration
It's a bitter kiss that'll make you wish
You never had a taste

Love dies young, oh
Love dies young, oh
Please don't take my breath
Don't take my breath away
Love dies young

Love's so dumb so what's the fascination
Leaves you numb with a nasty reputation
When you lose your head and lights go out
You'll never be the same

Love dies young, oh
Love dies young, oh
Please don't take my breath
Don't take my breath away
Love dies young

Never-ending cemeteries, funeral parades
All your dreams are buried in their place

Love dies young, oh
Please don't take my breath
Don't take my breath away
Love dies young

Love dies young, oh
Love dies young, oh
Please don't take my breath
Don't take my breath away
Love dies young
Love dies young
Love dies young
Love dies young
Love dies young
Love dies young
Love dies young
Love dies young
Love dies young
