Alkaline Trio - Nose Over Tail Lyrics




Crack my head open on your kitchen floor
To prove to you that I have brains
Meanwhile tin men are led by little girls
Down golden roads that lead to nowhere

Fine time to fake a seizure
Feel your mouth on mine, you're saving me

Whatever happened to that silly dream you had?
I want to make it real
I'd love to rub your back
Like a plane crash that never hits the ground
I fall in love with you
I'm nose over tail for you
Your voice like the sound of sirens to a house on fire
You're saving me

Alkaline Trio Nose Over Tail Comments
  1. Nelos 182

    Crack my head open on your kitchen floor
    To prove to you that I have brains
    Meanwhile tin men are led by little girls
    Down golden roads that lead to nowhere
    Fine time to fake a seizure
    To feel your mouth on mine, you're saving me
    Whatever happened to that silly dream you had?
    I want to make it real
    I'd love to rub your back
    Like a plane crash that never hits the ground
    I fall in love with you
    I'm nose over tail for you
    Your voice like the sound of sirens to a house on fire
    You're saving me

  2. silverscreen studios

    1:01 best line from alk3

  3. ALFAJERKBFH

    His play on words and all the puns makes for awesome song writing

  4. ALFAJERKBFH

    Whatever happened to that silly dream you had? I want to pop your pimples. I'd love to hump your dad.

  5. We Remotely Low

    Favorite song on here.

  6. Northernlights4

    Faking a seizure.... youre pathological!! Lmao

  7. horrorpunx

    If I had to introduce someone to Alk3 for the first time, this is the song I'd use to do it. It just perfectly encapsulates who they are as a band.

  8. cgungr yfcdjs

    in the long look, this is one of few songs from this band that has stood the test of time

    ThatDereKid

    All of the Asian Man stuff is classic.

    FallNorth

    I agree it stood the test of time, but the rest did as well :)

  9. Jake McMurray

    Lyrical genius

  10. chisel chin

    why do i hear two guitar players

    Tercio Santana

    Guitarists who play in power trios usually track from 2 to 3 rithym guitars before tracking solos and stuff... All for a thicker sound I guess. Almost every band does that.

    cgungr yfcdjs

    +Tercio Santana describe to me the difference between between a "power trio" and a 3 people in a fucking band?

    cgungr yfcdjs

    +Chisel Chin it's called multi-tracking, this band you may have heard called "The Beatles" first made it popular.

    Tony Bones

    it isn't live

    Tony Bones

    I believe this album was recorded in two takes.  I heard just for the extra guitar layer but it doesn't make sense to record the drummer only once

  11. Wakasaurus Rex

    This...is the original? It's just remastered, so the quality doesn't sound as bad. It was released in 2008 too...it's literally the same album.

    Nicholas Berlincourt

    The original is on the Self Titled before this album came out, and it is slower and a different recording. But yes, there is also the Damnesia version that is acoustic and newly recorded.

  12. Heatwave

    Geoff Ramsey!

  13. Tim Lundin

    It might also be a clever refrence to the lines before it

  14. heavenstreet

    "Nose over Tail" is a play on the phrase "head over heels." In the 2nd verse, Matt sings, "...like a plane crash that never hits the ground / I fall in love with you / I'm nose over tail for you."

  15. KirkusMan31

    This is my favorite album! the first song i heard was this could be love, then i went a bought some of their albums, and this one is the one i really liked the most.

  16. chavezroy

    congratulations. you deserve a medal.

  17. Only Way Is Linux

    @jungsbodyguard yep it's the b-side from the sundials single from 1997

  18. Only Way Is Linux

    Fucking intense! And I'm still listening to it all these years later. This is not the same version on their self titled and I'm really glad they redid it and it became this!

  19. Fikhri Amin

    is this song about skateboarding?haha..
    sk8board nose & tail

    Lewis Yates

    Fikhri Amin is this song about dogs? Haha...
    Dog nose and tail

  20. jenna theis

    throwback

  21. jungsbodyguard

    @xILiekCerealx An earlier version of this song is on the self-titled compilation album.

  22. Desiree Dawn

    Best Love Song Ever!!

  23. Nisaras94

    @PatrickTheHattrick92 I guess I should mention it in the description, but yes, this is the newer version from the re-release.

  24. PatrickTheHattrick92

    Oh also, this is the newer version from the re-release, isnt it?

  25. PatrickTheHattrick92

    @marcomora455
    I don't even know what rooster teeth is. Roosters don't even have teeth, do they?
    who doesnt know who alkaline trio is?

  26. CountDruckula

    What is Rooster Teeth? seems like nothing special!

  27. Laura Young

    I used to sing this song to my daughter every night putting her to bed when she was an infant, hell she got her name from a trio song Emma. Trio is the soundtrack to my life

  28. poisonrain87

    @jenifyer Now that is a man who knows the right way to share his feelings. Love him forever and get matching alk3 tats :-)

  29. Matthew Peterson

    @marcomora455 whats rooster teeth?

  30. watchthiscityfall

    @zomgitsashleyy It seems to be some sort of gaming and comic book web community? I don't fucking know i googled it and got roosterteeth(dot)com as the first result.

  31. Jonas Gaertner

    @buseyisgod the one your thinking of is a cleaned up version on there self-titled album...its has the cassette on the front cover

  32. buseyisgod

    the version of this song i'm used to sounds different, though i don't know if that's because it's an older version or cause it's on a cassette tape

  33. john king

    @marcomora455 What the hell is Rooster teeth?

  34. alkalinezombie

    @marcomora455 is correct, rooster teeth is basically the politically correct version of cock bite

  35. John Dukes

    reminds me of a girl named Tiana...shes fuckin REAL DAMNIT!

  36. Sean Colvin

    I'm nose over tail for you!

  37. Marc M

    Roosterteeth is a video game blog site where they show "Machinia-like" Halo videos called Red vs Blue. Some Admin called Geoff must posted this song in their vlog and obviously there has been quite a lot of people that have loved it. Go to the first comments of this video. However this song goes way back before even Halo existed and ,like me, many people have grown listening to Alk3 before youtube or other major web2.0 websites existed. Plz note: I'm not hating on RoosterTeeth.

  38. wastedruid

    I personally like the version from they're self titled album better.

  39. Marc M

    Thumbs up if you DIDN'T find this through Rooster teeth. ALWAYS knew about this great song from one of alk3 first albums

  40. RogueHippie13

    @comik300 ditto

  41. comik300

    wow. was not expecting this off geoff's blog, but i like it. a lot.

  42. kweston04b3

    ROOSTERTEETH

  44. Eric Kanis

    Theres something special about Matt's love songs, theres just this great underlying feeling that emanates from them

  45. gocsa

    Fine time to fake a seizure!
