about

The Dead Anyways Bromley, UK

The Dead Anyways are four friends from South East London. We play a kind of fast paced agitated pop punk with influences coming from all over the greater punk spectrum. We'd like to think we sound like a mixture of Bad Religion, Dillinger Four and The Lawrence Arms... We probably sound like something else entirely. ... more

Track Name: Direct Me Home
These feet have blistered over
On the streets of cities the world over
But this town is where they bleed out
I haven't given up looking for something
And stealing life from underneath deaths nose

'Cos I'm still here dreaming
'Cos I'm still here dreaming

Those words you left me with
Were smothered in night and snow
And hard to hear - Woah!
Without consideration
You cured me of that homesick feeling
By making it so I could not go home

That empty bottle still tastes of your lips
But I'm stuck with it anyway
Now every time you laugh
Feels like you're laughing in my face
And every step you take
Feels like you're stamping on my grave

But I'm still here surviving
But I'm still here fucking dancing

Those words you left me with
Were smothered in night and snow
And hard to hear - Woah!
Without consideration
You cured me of that homesick feeling
By making it so I could not go home

I've been lost for as long as my memory goes
You were never gonna direct me home
Track Name: Oscar Wilde At Heart
In the half light I see shapes against the wall
They remind me of times I once knew
Try to forget and leave those memories behind
To harden and not look in your eyes

Because everything that pulls us apart
Is a weight on my shoulders and a kick to my heart
The burden I feel seems to be all mine
Washed your hands of it
Left me to live with both our lives

Drinking to forget is sometimes
Better than forgetting to drink at all

In the morning I'll regret all of this
No matter how natural it feels when we kiss
How did we get here? How did it come to this?
When every word feels like the greatest and the worst thing at the same time

Just because I can't bring myself to cry
Doesn't mean I'm not dying inside

So I'll drown it
Its the only thing that works
I'll drown it
Gives me something else to regret
I'll kill it
Its the way that I was taught
But I have to live with it
And deal with this alone
It was always gonna be like this

Drinking to forget is sometimes
Better than forgetting to drink at all.
Track Name: Night Letters
I lost everything to you
Then I lost you too
I let you steal my heart
Didn't know you'd take my life as well
Cut down
Left in darkness in this tiny room
With no-one and nothing
With no-one and nothing

Time snapping at my feet
Ready to eat me alive
This is what was left
No-one and nothing
No-one and nothing
Not a lot is it?

When we come back home
With nothing but a wallet full of coins and the fear
When everything I own
Is sitting on the backseat of my car
And I don't see a sunset to drive towards
I don't see nothing at all

Time snapping at my feet
Ready to eat me alive
This is what was left
No-one and nothing
No-one and nothing
Not a lot is it?

I never had much beneath this mask anyway
Just a half considered act
And a knack to see the truth through you
Despite you
Despite yourself
Despite you
Despite yourself
Track Name: Lost To The Fog
One last look, one last time
One last chance to see your eyes
And touch your hand as it slips out of mine
Reminds me of the things we left behind
And the things we never tried when our lives
Touched and rhymed

We never rode the Ferris Wheel
By night or high
And the last time we touched
Felt like I was alive
One last time

A final touch, a final beat
Our hearts on fire
We're both absent tonight
In our hearts we've already left
When our tears expired
Love is all we have tonight

In that moment you broke my heart
Sat together but apart
On the couch we still both own
We're both skin and bone
Don't dare pick up the phone
Both looking for the words to say
The words already said, our life already made

Filled with regret and the wine from yesterday
Try not to meet each others gaze
I used to live under your watchful eyes
As you did mine
I miss that sometimes
But it won't change what we have to do
Sometimes I just miss you

A final touch, a final beat
Our hearts on fire
We're both absent tonight
In our hearts we've already left
When our tears expired
Love is all we have tonight

Dry your eyes on mine
Dry your eyes before you drive home
Dry your eyes before you lie
Dry your eyes one last time
Dry your eyes on mine
Its the only way I could bring myself to cry
Dry your eyes before you lie
Dry your eyes one last time
