Top 20 Songs of 2014: Against Me! - Black Me Out


This track has got to be one for the ages... Listened to it a thousand times, and will probably listen to it a million more; Outstanding song in so many ways.

Where a lyric like the song's chorus, "I want to piss on the walls of your house," sounding almost folky in an unplugged environment, it takes on a heightened drama amid the rumble of her and guitarist James Bowman's instruments. RS


I don't ever want to talk that way again,
I don't want to know people like that anymore.
As if there was an obligation,
As if I owed you something.

Black me out.
I want to piss on the walls of your house,
I want to chop those brass rings off your fat fucking fingers.
As if you were a kingmaker. Black me out.

I don't want to see the world that way anymore,
I don't want to feel that weak and insecure.
As if you were my fucking pimp,
As if I was your fucking whore.

Black me out.
I want to piss on the walls of your house,
I want to chop those brass rings off your fat fucking fingers.
As if you were a kingmaker.
Black me out.
I want to piss on the walls of your house,
I want to chop those brass rings off your fat fucking fingers.
As if you were a kingmaker. Black me out.

All the young graves filled.
Don't the best stars burn out so bright and so fast?
All the young graves filled.
Don't the best stars burn out so bright and so fast?
Full-body high. I'm never coming down.

Black me out.




Laura Jane Grace performed a brand new Against Me! song entitled Black Me Out before the Revival Tour in Atlanta.
