A Dustland Fairytale
The Killers Lyrics


Dustland fairytale beginning
Just another white trash
County kiss
Sixty one
Long brown hair and foolish eyes
He looks just like you want him to
Some kind of slick chrome American prince
A blue jean serenade
And Moon River what'd you do to me
And I don't believe you

Saw Cinderella in a party dress but
She was looking for a night gown
I saw the devil warping up his hands
He's getting ready for the show down
I saw the minute that I turn away
I got my money on a pond tonight

Change came in disguised of revelation
Set his soul on fire
She said she'd always knew he'd come around
And the decades disappear like sinking
Ships we persevere god gives us hope
But we still fear
We don't know
The mind is poison castle in the sky
Sit stranded vandalized
The draw bridge is closing

Saw Cinderella in a party dress but
She was looking for a night gown
I saw the devil warping up his hands
He's getting ready for the show down
I saw the ending were they turned the page
I threw my money and I ran away
Strait to the Vally of the great divide

And were the dreams roll high
And were the wind don't blow
Out here the good girls die
And the sky won't snow
Out here the bird don't sing
Out here the field don't grow
Out here the bell don't ring
Out here the bell don't ring
Out here the good girls die

Now Cinderella don't you go to sleep
Its such a bitter form of refuge
Ah don't you know the kingdoms under siege
And everybody needs you
Is there still magic in the midnight sun
Or did you leave it back in sixty-one
In the of the cadence in the young mans eyes
And were the dreams roll high

it has everything to do with his mother's terminal brain cancer diagnosis and resulting death.

"Out here the good girls die...
Now Cinderella don't you go to sleep,
it's such a bitter form of refuge
ah, don't you know the Kingdom's under siege
and everybody needs you"

he's pleading for his mom to keep fighting and to not give up.

The Killers are the most underrated band.

Yes. No one buys their records or goes to their concerts. I hope they will make it someday.

@Jake Hixon them mean about Underrated in the sense of the popularity they're popular but no as the strokes or Arctic monkeys coz em from the same era 2000s
Arctic monkeys is the most Massive band from 2000s
