Sleater-Kinney – Bury Our Friends Lyrics

[Tucker:]
Today I am stitched, I am sewn
Patch me up, I’ve got want in my bones1
Like some doll you thought you could throw away
I found my legs2

[Brownstein:]
Ready to climb out from under concrete
Only I get to be sickened by me
My body a smudge3
Can’t make out the details
Want to start over and come into being4

[Chorus – Tucker & Brownstein:]
Exhume our idols and bury our friends
We’re wild and weary but we won’t give in5
We’re sick with worry
These nerve less days
We live on dread in our own guilded age6

[Tucker:]
This dark world is precious to me
My scars make me breathe in so deep
My body has no need for sleep
This time around7

[Brownstein:]
Ready to find fragments of stillness
Only I get to be punished by me8
Your voice is a crumb, it leads me from the wildness
Wanna start over, forget everything9

[Chorus]

[Brownstein:]
Make me a headline
I wanna be that bold
Make me a spotlight
So I can see the gold

Make me a headline
I wanna feel that bold
Make me a spotlight
So I can see the gold10

[Chorus]

[Tucker & Brownstein:]
We speak in circles
We dance in code
Untame and hungry
On fire in the cold
Exhume our idols and bury our friends
We’re wild and weary but we won’t give in11
