Arctic Monkeys Fright Lined Dining Room Lyrics

[Verse 1]

You thrive on dancing in our laps

Before the more familiar chaps

And all the curtain leads to fever

We watched the womanizer cry

And in the last sip you and I

Declared we might require a breather

I am the truth true through and I

Convey excitement fluently

As solid as I can busk shock

With well presented merry men

And I know all too well

I shouldn’t break the key off in the lock

[Chorus]

And the tumble splits the fray

Revealing silk and fit

In the fright lined dining room

Throw a gaze towards them while they feast

[Verse 2]

The days drag their heels

When you’re not there to crack the whip

And the weeks wait to burst like a sache of brats

The old pantomime villian follows my coat

And he hides where it hangs and he spies through the slots

And meanwhile in the desert’s only costume shop

The cowels hide and wait to rot away

The identities of the willing

[Verse 3]

Drowned bags of sugar in the night

Rocketing shutter doors despite

The shop not opening for hours

You can itch, flap and whistle

And try to avoid the top

As I scribbled over dribble

You were snoring, showing off

[Chorus]

The tumble splits the frays

Revealing silk and fit

In the fright lined dining room

Throw a gaze towards them while they feast
