Lyrics for Heads Will Roll by Yeah Yeah Yeahs:

Off with your head
Dance ’til you’re dead
Heads will roll
Heads will roll
Heads will roll
On the floor

Glitter on the wet streets
Silver over everything
The river's all wet
You’re all chrome

Dripping with alchemy
Shiver, stop shivering
The glitter’s all wet
You’re all chrome

The men cry out, the girls cry out
The men cry out, the girls cry out
The men cry out, oh no

The men cry out, the girls cry out
The men cry out, the girls cry out
The men cry out, oh no

Ohhh, ahhhh
Ohhh, ahhhh

Off, off with your head
Dance, dance ’til you’re dead (dead)
Heads will roll
Heads will roll
Heads will roll
On the floor

Looking glass
Take the past
Shut your eyes
Mirror lies
Looking glass
Take the past
Shut your eyes
Mirror lies

Glitter on the wet streets
Silver over everything
The glitter’s all wet
You’re all chrome
You’re all chrome

Ohhh, ahhhh
Ohhh, ahhhh

Off, off, off with your head
Dance, dance, dance ’til you’re dead
Off, off, off with your head
Dance, dance, dance ’til you’re dead
Off, off, off with your head
Dance, dance, dance ’til you’re dead
Off, off, off with your head
Dance, dance, dance ’til you’re dead

Off, off, off with your head
Dance, dance, dance ’til you’re dead
Off, off, off with your head
Dance, dance, dance ’til you’re dead

Song Facts

A seductive and frightening mix of dance music and goth that confronts the deadly rave lifestyle without compromise or preaching, “Heads Will Roll” is the second single off indie rock band Yeah Yeah Yeah’s 2009 album It’s Blitz! The song peaked at #1 on the Dance/Electronic Singles chart in the U.S.A. and on Belgium’s Flemish Ultratop 50 chart.

The popular historical serial drama The Tudors used the song to promote the 4th season, which told the story of Henry VIII’s teenaged fifth queen, Katherine Howard, who was beheaded for adultery.

An episode of the TV series Glee featured a mashup of “Heads Will Roll” and “Thriller” by Michael Jackson.

Both the song and its video integrate Alice in Wonderland/Red Queen imagery with references to drug use at raves (although the term “rave” is never specifically used).
