Knights of Shame

Chords and lyrics for Knights of Shame by AWOLNATION

dance baby dance like the world is ending
dance baby dance like the world is ending
dance baby dance cuz the world is ending

this is who you are

ohh, ohh,

 
sit back  
F 
and look for the warnings
the futures bright and alarming
sit back and look for the warnings

Cool

Woo

Huh

Cool

Oh

they be walking around ya

 
with your head cut  
A# 
off
 
their power’s fear and  
F 
it surrounds me
there are signs you can see
one day we will wake the walking zombies
til then we pray

everybody, everybody

the king and his ghost are laughing at me

these signs you can see
one day we will listen for the sirens
’til then we pray

Skeletons march

A army guns
Drop your feet
I’m scared
I’m duke Ellington
 
My mother said there’d by  
A# 
things like this
 
But one of  
F 
the fires lit made her piss

Crawling are zombies all up inside me

 
Transforming vampires right beside  
A# 
me
And you can’t run
Cuz u do, you’ll be dead
 
And the walls  
Fm 
can’t roll from the side of my head

I beat the drool

I beat the ghouls
But his last kiss all suckers
They will cease to exist
I can’t entertain what it’d be to be human
Lay waste to cities leave towns in ruin
I. Am. A. Ro. Bot.

 
Whole  
F 
arsenal stock ready to blow
Lastly, you see my by 3 by 3
 
Firing  
C 
these things called  
F 
TNT

These things called TNT

These things called TNT
They call me TNT
These things called TNT

Ahh, ahh, ahh, ahh

Aw,

We can dance like the world’s over
Yeah it’s almost 2012 call your girls over
 
Let’s kick back,  
A# 
pop shots, have a ball
And if the world blow up, next life we’ll do it all over

Ah Yeah,

Let’s toast to the memory
I wrote my name in the sky
 
So  
Fm 
remember 
 
me
Baby forever we
Together we’ll ……..
I’ll leave my baby over something
Then hell’ll freeze

Froze.

This world cold like Natalie
So
Let’s lose our clothes like Adam, Eve
Back to the basics
Step out the matrix
Step out your cool baby
Get on my spaceship

I’ve seen her face lit

 
She seen the sound  
F 
like a basin
So ran home like a base hit
Safe!
Fm 
Life is whatever you think it is
So whatchoo think this is?

Oh, ah, ah

Oh, ah, ah

Aw

 
Yeah it’s all in  
C 
your mind baby
Am 
You gotta do what you feel like ……
You gotta spread your wings and just fly baby
You feel like you’re reborn?
C 
That’s my baby
Am 
Says she feel it in her soul like a vibrator
 
I  
C 
got some  
F 
things for your thoughts
We can try later
 
Let’s  
C 
hit the  
Am 
dancefloor
 
Right before we  
G 
outa 
 
town
And just party like it’s 1999

You know what prince said

Girl, you my princess
 
I  
C 
got the glass slipper
Am 
I hope  
Em 
the thing fit
 
F 
Your body on fire
Let me extinguish
Cm 
hop on this  
C 
white 
 
horse
Ride to the sunset

Is anybody really out there breathing?

 
Is anybody really sick  
Cm 
of 
 
breathing
 
So  
C 
come out scream to the sky this evening
It’s full of women
I’m a choice you’re feeling

Let’s stop today!

Cm 
Let’s stop today!
x2

 
F 
Stop today x2

The queens heart

 
The knights of  
C

So we
