Better Off Dead – Lostprophets

I wanna talk about a sound, a voice, a freedom, rejoice.
I can’t stay silent while you take away our choice.
The guns, the armour, the gossip, the drama.
The innocent, guilty, we’re all free of karma.
The nation, the rules, the patient, the fools,
The picket lines inside, to close down schools,
A chance we take, the path we tread,
You can’t cry ‘freedom’, when you’re standing on the dead,
Nobody put this in me, I only wanna get free,
Battered out of hatred, jealousy, envy,
Liars, the fakes, the funerals, the wakes,
The life we live, you give, it takes,
The stones we cast, the future, the past,
The laws we break, too slow, too fast,
The highs, the lows, we fell, we rose,
Wi’ happiness or woes, we come and we go…

[Chorus:]
GO!
I sing revolution while you’re trying to silence me,
My resolution for a life I can lead,
Adversity has become part of my destiny
I’d rather die on my feet, than ever live on my knees.

And all I’m hearing is the news,
The shots, the bombs, the plots,
We separate and divide, the streets, the blocks,
The free, the brave, the dead, the grave,
Everyday combat, the ones you couldn’t save,
The scars, the cracks, the science, the facts,
Religion, control, the knife in our backs,
The found, the lost, we pay, the cost,
Genocide inside, we’re taken by the cross,
Somebody put this in me, I only wanted to see,
An end to all this hatred, jealously, envy,
The fires, the scrapes, the records, the tapes,
The weak, the strong, the love, the hate,
The sails, the masts, no future, no past,
Abuse we take, too slow, too fast,
The highs, the lows, we fell, we rose,
Wi’ happiness or woes, we come and we go…

[Chorus:]
GO!
I sing revolution while you’re trying to silence me,
My resolution for a life I can lead,
Adversity has become part of my destiny
I’d rather die on my feet, than ever live on my

I sing revolution singing ‘Oh, are you hearing me?’
My own solution for a new enemy,
I close your arms, fall on you, lost in this misery,
I’d rather die on my feet, than ever live on my
I’d rather die on my feet, than ever live on my
I’d rather die on my feet, than ever live on my knees.

All pray, judge and leaders
You made us, none believers,
These graves that you leave us, replace your promised freedom
All pray, judge and leaders
You made us none believers,
These graves that you leave us, replace your promised freedom
All pray!

A Thousand Apologies – Lostprophets

SO AFRAID!
Thoughts come my way,
LOSE IT ALL!
But it was nothing anyway,
WHAT’S DONE IS DONE!
And I know I’ll be saved,
In time you will,
SO MOVE ON!
God said he’d help me through,

And you’re all very proud,
When there’s nothing left to steal,
And I feel, so real, it scares me.

And have I ever asked for more?

BETRAYED!
My plans award me,
IT’S NEVER UP TO ME!
I know that I’ll break,
HOW FAR KID?!
Coz from here it looks like a long way down, I can’t climb back up,
That’s keeping me from you,

And you’re all very proud,
When there’s nothing left to steal,
And I feel, so real, it scares me.

And have I ever asked for more?
Was I that Insecure?

Can’t you stick out your fears, can’t you push them out some more, yeah
Can’t you stick out your fears, can’t you push them out some more, yeah

I…know…it’s…all…in there…but I…can’t see…
I CAN’T SEE THAT FAR!!
WOOOO!
Yeah!

Those who made up time, now what’s it gonna be? ARGH!
Something, something’s wrong, something’s wrong, something’s very WRONG! ARGH!

Please…can…I…have…more…time?
…If I see you again, I’ll laugh right in your face.

Burn, Burn – Lostprophets

Where do I begin, with this life we’re living in
Market youth their uniform, make us all fit in
But do you think, that we’re that blind?
That we can’t see through all your lies

[chorus:]
Cause it’s no good
Burn burn the stations
We’ll burn it down
Burn burn the truth
Enjoy the flames
In celebration
Enjoy the sound
For us, for them, for you

I know that I’ve been told
My intergrity was sold
Priced and placed upon the shelf
It’s worth it’s weight in gold
But do you think we’ve lost our minds?
Yeah we can see through all your lies

[chorus]

Burn burn the truth the lies the news
Burn burn the life that you cant choose
Burn burn the hate that gets you through
Burn burn for us, for them, for you [x8]

Cause it’s no good
Burn burn the stations
We’ll burn it down
Burn burn the truth
Enjoy the flames
In celebration
Enjoy the sound

For us, for them, for you [x5]

Broken Hearts, Torn Up Letters and The Story of a Lonely Girl – Lostprophets

Broken hearts and torn up letters
Girl you just can’t dance forever
If you want to make it better…

Her hands are in her pockets
And she’s scared to look
The picture’s frozen
And she’s closed the book
Jealousy has only got one friend
And Joey’s heart was never meant to mend
Walking faster now she holds him close
The timing matters just to take the dose
Empty pockets tell the stories..

And there’s no destiny when everyone’s your enemy
Take your jealous heart and cast it into stone
You’ll regret it all
Living behind your wall
And you’ll never fall in love
If you don’t fall at all

Broken hearts and torn up letters
Girl you just can’t dance forever
If you want to make it better…

The nights are getting darker
And the wind is cold
The summer sun
Has now become so old
Her closest friends
Were never meant to fade
With all these dreams
That didn’t make the grade
Close the doors but never look inside
Time will tell if all your love has died
Empty pockets tell the stories…

And there’s no destiny when everyone’s your enemy
Take your jealous heart and cast it into stone
You’ll regret it all
Living behind your wall
And you’ll never fall in love
If you don’t risk it all

Broken hearts and torn up letters
Girl you just can’t dance forever
If you want to make it better

Broken hearts and torn up letters
Girl you just can’t dance forever
If you want to make it better
Times like these won’t last forever…
