When It All Goes Down Verse 1 No one's going home tonight, we'll be alright here side by side. We should have another round and talk all night. We don't care who's listening because we know this means something and we all know this world's an ugly place. Chorus When it all goes down, can you see we're still around? Verse 2 Someone said you'll all die young. We said we hoped so, it's been fun. I hope we never learn how to be like them. What we know is what you can't teach. We all went to punk rock university so close your books and join us on the road. Chorus When it all goes down, can you see we're still around? Chorus When it all goes down, can you see we're still around?

If The Camels Die, We Die Verse 1 Did we come this far only to turn around and go back to where we started from? And even if we did, why does it still make this much sense? Because we're doing everything we can? Chorus These endless sleepless nights are bound to keep us alive and we got to keep moving on. Verse 2 After countless sighs of frustration, we know that this has turned into an obsession. We're doing everything we can. Chorus These endless sleepless nights are bound to keep us alive and we got to keep moving on. Bridge We got to keep moving on.

A Way With Words Verse 1 I have a way with ways of escape but only you can save me from myself. I won't even try to put you on and see if you'd mind. Chorus A way with words. You analyze my dreams. Dead on. Verse 2 You could call it love if you really wanted but half the time I don't know what's going on. I won't even try to lie to myself and see if you'd mind. Chorus A way with words. You analyze my dreams. Dead on. Bridge Dead On Chorus A way with words. You analyze my dreams. Dead on.

On The Town Verse 1 Hey, I was trying to be the one in this forsaken town that has some fun because it's all that I can do. Verse 2 I'm only trying to be a friend when this fucked town comes to an end because it's all that I can do. Chorus I do believe that we'll survive somehow and I'll save you from yourself if you want me to. Verse 3 Hey, I was trying to get things done And I was a friend to everyone. Chorus I do believe that we'll survive somehow and I'll save you from yourself if you want me to. Bridge So I will try to save you from yourself.

Be Better Than Me I've just lost my best friend. I've just lost your helping hand. I need to find a way out of my own skin. I hope you'll be what you’ve always wanted to be. I hope you see that you still mean so much to me. I hope you'll be what you’ve always wanted to be. Be better than me. I need to find a reason not to sleep all day. I hope you'll be what you’ve always wanted to be. I hope you see that you’ve always meant a lot to me. I hope you'll be what you’ve always wanted to be. Be better than me.

Skinny And Distracted Verse The colors all fade around me. My view is smoky and desaturated. I used to love the way we were back when winters were still haunting and blue. Bridge I'm lonely but not alone. I'm skinny and distracted. I'll be happy to hold back the tears because I haven't cried in years. Chorus 1 I don't feel like me anymore. I swallowed my anxieties and they've turned me inside out. I'm no longer waiting for you to call because I know you'll make me whole again. Chorus 2 I loved you from your hat to shoes, I miss you more than severed limbs. I want to sleep, I don't want to dream. I'd rather be thin than famous. Bridge I'm lonely but not alone. I'm skinny and distracted. I'll be happy to hold back the tears because I haven't cried in years. Chorus 1 I don't feel like me anymore. I swallowed my anxieties and they've turned me inside out. I'm no longer waiting for you to call because I know you'll make me whole again. Chorus 2 I loved you from your hat to shoes, I miss you more than severed limbs. I want to sleep, I don't want to dream. I'd rather be thin than famous.

One That Can See Verse 1 This really feels real to me and I'm fed up with doing pointless things. I don't understand why I should do what they do and what everybody does. In a world where everyone's asleep, I want to wake up and be in their dreams. Chorus I guess I've said this before but I can take it no more. It's nothing I can ignore, it's what I'm doing this for. Verse 2 This is not a game we play. They want us to reproduce and obey. I'm not a gambler and that's something I'll never be. I hear everybody is but it's gambling without the risks. Why am I scared to start my own family? Chorus I guess I've said this before but I can take it no more. It's nothing I can ignore, it's what I'm doing this for. Bridge I guess what it comes down to is, pack your bags and try your best to get away. Chorus I guess I've said this before but I can take it no more. It's nothing I can ignore, it's what I'm doing this for.

Stay Down Stay Strong Verse 1 I'm at the bottom. This sinking ship is my home. The drinks keep floating and I don't really care. Did I meet you yesterday or two weeks ago? I don't know. Chorus 1 Stay down, stay strong. Am I the one? Verse 2 You walk like a dancer. I see your face everywhere. You act like a chancer and I fell victim to you. I'm a drunkard that never learned to be old. Chorus 2 Stay down, stay strong. Am I the one? Am I to blame (Try getting over me.) for everything you did. Chorus 2 Stay down, stay strong. Am I the one? Am I to blame (Try getting over me.) for everything you did.

Kitchen-Sink Drama Verse 1 Has everybody gone insane now? This is everything I know and love, so don't ruin this. I'm fucking pissed. Why is no one talking to me? Why is everybody talking about me when I'm not around? Chorus You people say I'm not that smart and that it's dumb to be in love with this but I have a conscious mind and I feel fine. I would never tell you what I believe you should or shouldn't do, so please could you do the same for me? I know we're smart. Do come around. Verse 2 Has everybody gone insane now? This is everything I know and love, so don't ruin this. I'm fucking pissed. Why is no one talking to me? Why is everybody talking about me when I'm not around?

I would never tell you what I believe you should or shouldn't do, so please could you do the same for me? I know we're smart. Do come around. Bridge Will you let me in? I'm coming home. Chorus You people say I'm not that smart and that it's dumb to be in love with this but I have a conscious mind and I feel fine. I would never tell you what I believe you should or shouldn't do, so please could you do the same for me?

30 Pills Verse 1 When he was young, he did most of the silly things that we all do but how could he have guessed that someday screwing around would be his doom? Bridge 1 He has been diagnosed HIV positive ten years ago come next June. Ten years in hell. Chorus He takes more than thirty pills a day and some only to prevent side-effects. So many pills and no cure in sight. Everyday it gets harder to hold on. Verse 2 Our society gave up on him and says he can only blame himself for drug abuse and sharing needles and homosexuality. Bridge 1 He has been diagnosed HIV positive ten years ago come next June. Ten years in hell. Chorus He takes more than thirty pills a day and some only to prevent side-effects. So many pills and no cure in sight. Everyday it gets harder to hold on. Bridge 2 We could make it easier for him and show him he belongs. Bridge 1 He has been diagnosed HIV positive ten years ago come next June. Ten years in hell. Chorus He takes more than thirty pills a day and some only to prevent side-effects. So many pills and no cure in sight. Everyday it gets harder to hold on.

Still I Persist Verse 1 The names and places might have changed but still the faces remain the same. I've said this a million times before and still I'm saying it once more. Bridge 1 I haven't changed. I haven’t changed. Verse 2 I wrote this song to feel alive, to stay awake and to keep in touch. My mind is clearer now because I wrote this one for myself. Chorus 1 And I'll try to stay awake. I guess I'm ok when I'm alone. Chorus 2 So I drink my life away and try to be someone I'm not but still I know that there's a place I can call home. I was told that I wouldn't get far but still I always knew better because I know a place I can call home. Bridge 2 Nothing has changed. Nothing has changed. Chorus 2 Still your eyes shine so bright tonight. Still I'm longing for your arms.
12.
You Are My Friend Verse 1 You've been here before and now you're here again. You keep coming back because you're my best of friends. Don't you wonder why we hardly speak of this? Bridge You are my friend. Verse 2 You call me up to see what I'm up to. I tell you I'd like to spend some time with you and that not much has every felt this right before. Bridge You are my friend. Chorus I wonder if all of this is over. Chorus I wonder if all of this is over and there you are, my friend.

about

Versus You Luxembourg

Since 2005 we've released some records, seen a few drummers come and go, played a hell of a lot of shows and toured Eastern Europe, Russia and the UK twice. We try to be honest and true to ourselves and everyone else and sometimes succeed and sometimes fail miserably. We're always broke because we put everything we got into this band. The name means absolutely nothing. ... more
