Pour Me is a song from Hollywood Undead's second album, American Tragedy.

Background

J-Dog told Artist Direct the story of this song: "We were messing around with chord progressions and that came out like a more major chord style than we were used to it. It's melodic and poppy sounding. We're talking about drinking obviously because all of us sometimes drink too much. It's one of those basic every day things that people go through but they don't know how to voice it or others around them don't know to voice it. It's almost like you're looked down upon, but no one actually talks about it."

Lyrics

Danny: Pour me, pour me, pour me another
It holds me, holds me like no other
One more drink, then I swear that I'm going home
Truth is I don't really have a place to go
So pour me, pour me, pour me another

Johnny 3 Tears: I wake up right about the mid-afternoon
With the sun in the sky, but night's coming soon
And I walk to the mirror just to fix myself
Yeah, life gets harder when you love nothing else
So I pick my pills from the counter drawer
Pick my self-esteem up off the fucking floor
I guess I'm a man of no recourse
As I crack another bottle, got no remorse
And I'll say a little prayer for the child in me
I swear I used to be one I truly believe
That I'm not just a man with these broken dreams
That even I can go to heaven if I part the sea, so

Danny: Pour me, pour me, pour me another
It holds me, holds me like no other
One more drink, then I swear that I'm going home
Truth is I don't really have a place to go
So pour me, pour me, pour me another

Johnny 3 Tears: People get sick and they'll watch you bleed
When you fell from the top, boy, you better believe
At the bottom they got just, yeah, just what you need
But at the bottom, you can't swim cause you drank up the sea
When we stop and we look up to the sky
They don't ask any questions, they ask us why
Don't have any answers, don't know what to say
Our knees are getting tired, too tired to pray
That's when we laid down, end of the road
We all seem to walk it, guess I walked it alone
And I'm not just a man with these broken dreams
Even I can go to heaven if I part the sea, so

Danny: Pour me, pour me, pour me another
It holds me, holds me like no other
One more drink, then I swear that I'm going home
Truth is I don't really have a place to go
So pour me, pour me, pour me another

Time just seems to go on and on
On and on and on and on
Life inside a bottle, all along
All along, the bottle's gone

Johnny 3 Tears: I'm not just a man with these broken dreams
Even I could go to heaven if I part the sea
Danny: (What's life inside a bottle if it's gone?)
Johnny 3 Tears: One more song and I'm finally free
I'll meet you here in heaven between the sea
'Cause I'm not just a man with these broken dreams
Even I can go to heaven if I part the sea, so

Danny: Pour me, pour me, pour me another
It holds me, holds me like no other
One more drink, then I swear that I'm going home
Truth is I don't really have a place to go
So pour me, pour me, pour me another

Pour me, pour me, pour me, pour me
(Pour me another)
Pour me, pour me, pour me, pour me
Pour me another
