Top 10: Favourite TAI Lyrics

On FB the other day, The Academy Is... asked what everyone’s favourite lyric from one of their songs were. Contemplating this, I realised I have a lot of favourite lyrics from TAI songs. So this week, keeping it short and sweet, 10 favourite lyrics...

You’re a stranger I know well, and not at all.
- The Test

You’re seldom known and barely missed.
- We’ve got a big mess on our hands

Always up or down, never down and out. Dream of demons while you sleep, they make you stutter when you speak.
- Down and out

So shut me up and bleed me dry, cheap champagne and complicated lifestyle.
- Chop chop

Every heart is like a house of cards when the walls cave down on you / Every heart is like a house on fire with escape routes in every room.
- Coppertone

Hold on, you haven’t heard the best yet, he writes good storylines, he’s got those honest eyes. So take him home for just 9.95, he’ll sing those songs you like, he’ll keep you warm at night.
- Classifieds

Let all your small steps expose your secrets, you don’t have to speak for me to believe it…Shaken and faint, you’ve got that feeling you’ve been followed under your skin, it will be weighing on your shoulders.
- Seed

Hollywood hills and suburban thrills, hey you, who are you kidding? I’m not like them, I won’t buy in.
- Slow down

Hold your head high heavy heart, so take a chance and make it big, cause it’s the last you’ll ever get. If we don’t take it, when will make it?
- The phrase that pays

So suck your so called pity down, hey that’s not so bad, is it? So take your cold, cold heart and drown, and don’t forget to take deep breaths.
- Checkmarks

Back down, cash out, that's the city for you. Break down, back out, get what's coming to you.
