Lyrics for  Life

 

“The Press Corpse” by Anti-Flag

The {Downing Street} memo says…

…We gotta work to make the facts fit the false charges
Pull the wool over the eyes of the filthy masses
Stab the people in the back for the corporate choice
Roll the propaganda out using The People’s Voice

We don’t want to talk about it…

The press scribble scribble every half-truth spoke
Then shoot it round the country like an April Fools joke
Hype the nation for a Desert Storm love affair
Wave the stars and stripes like you just don’t care!

They talk it up all day, they talk it up all night
They talk until their face turns blue – Red white and blue!
But when the truth escapes the night and crawls into the day
We find the picture still askew

They don’t want to… talk talk talk talk talk about it
They wanna tiptoe, walk around it
Wave the flag and mindlessly salute
They don’t want to talk about it
They wanna tiptoe, walk around it
Wave the flag and cowardly salute

And on the TV screen…
…Diversion and aversion is the flavor of the day
Was it WMDs? Or Democracy?
Blame it on MI-6 or the CIA
The White House Press Corpse only has one thing to say…

“We don’t want to talk about it!”

The White House boils over, “Al Jazeera got it wrong!”
The Press Corpse jumps onboard singing the White House song
While over in Iraq thousands are dead because of lies
The spineless war drumming-press corpse have taken lives

They talk it up all day, they talk it up all night
They talk until their face turns blue – Red white and blue!
But when the truth escapes the night and crawls into the day
We find the picture still askew

They don’t want to… talk talk talk talk talk about it
They wanna tiptoe, walk around it
Wave the flag and mindlessly salute
They don’t want to talk about it
They wanna tiptoe, walk around it
Wave the flag and cowardly salute

Fires fueled on endless lies
Black shrouds coat desert skies
A nation’s viewpoint blurred and led
As embeds report what they’re fed

We don’t want to talk about it…
We don’t want to talk about it…
We don’t want to talk about it…
We don’t want to talk about it…

“Party At Sean’s House” by Broadway

Hey what’s up? How are you? It fells so good to be back
Oh geez, I missed all you kids. Did you miss me back? 
It’s been a long time since I’ve been here
But not a damn things change in these past 3 years

It seems like every time I come back home
All of my life was lived without me I’m alone

Wasting away in a tiny van
I’m waiting for breaks and a big big check
To clear all of my debt and this weight of my back
That is hurting from the angle that I sleep every night in
We’re always fighting
I can’t deny that
I feel like crying
Every time I come back

Cuz it’s four AM and I’m the only one sober
My friends are dancing on the living room sofa
It’s a good sign, no more bad times
I’ve made it home
It’s four AM and I’m the only one sober
My friends are dancing on the living room sofa
It’s a good sign, no more bad times
I’ve made it home

Well it hurts to look back and think of the times
That we all got together and spent the whole night
Trading stories of grandeur and possible fights
We never got injured but I did one time

You gotta admit you never felt so alive
When responsibilities were never in sight
Just preoccupied with having the time of your life

Wasting away in a tiny van
I’m waiting for breaks and a big big check
To clear all of my debt and this weight off my back
That is hurting from the angle that I sleep every night in
We’re always fighting
I can’t deny that
I feel like crying
Every time I come back

Cuz it’s four AM and I’m the only one sober
My friends are dancing on the living room sofa
It’s a good sign, no more bad times
I’ve made it home
It’s four AM and I’m the only one sober
My friends are dancing on the living room sofa
It’s a good sign, no more bad times
I’ve made it home

Okay, it’s past five and it seems like
I’m the only one to survive the night
Well maybe if life wasn’t so hard
I’d still be passed out in Sean’s front yard

It’s four AM and I’m the only one sober
My friends are dancing on the living room sofa
It’s a good sign, no more bad times
I’ve made it home
OHHHHHHHHH!
“Self Esteem” by the Offspring

I wrote her off for the tenth time today
And practice all the things I would say
But she came over
I lost my nerve
I took her back and made her dessert
Now I know I’m being used
That’s okay man cause I like the abuse
I know she’s playing with me
That’s okay cause I got no self esteem

We make plans to go out at night
I wait till 2 then I turn out the light
All this rejection’s got me so low
If she keeps it up I just might tell her so

When she’s saying that she wants only me
Then I wonder why she sleeps with my friends
When she’s saying that I’m like a disease
Then I wonder how much more I can spend
Well I guess I should stick up for myself
But I really think it’s better this way
The more you suffer
The more it shows you really care
Right? Yeah yeah yeah

Now I’ll relate this little bit
That happens more than I’d like to admit
Late at night she knocks on my door
Drunk again and looking to score
Now I know I should say no
But that’s kind of hard when she’s ready to go
I may be dumb
But I’m not a dweeb
I’m just a sucker with no self esteem

“Faces” by Scary Kids Scaring Kids 

Would you agree that we’re far from all right?
(We fall below the line! We fall below the standards!)
If only you could see
What we see through these eyes
(This plague is spreading, it will sink under your skin!)

I won’t believe the horror that I see
Is more than your poison inside me

Let’s tear away these faces we hide behind
Cutting through the airwaves
Open up our minds
Show ourselves to the world tonight
Cause we are.. No longer in disguise!

Well, I’m aware of your lies, how do you sleep at night?
(It’s all a matter of time, I think their catching on)
You dream of wars, that I refuse to fight
(While people disappear, another broken heart)

I won’t believe the horror that I see
Is more than your poison inside me
I won’t let go, though the plague is spreading
I won’t let go

Let’s tear away these faces we hide behind
Cutting through the airwaves
Open up our minds
Show ourselves to the world tonight
Cause we are… No longer in disguise!

We can save ourselves
(Rise Up!)
You can’t stop us
We can save our soul
(Rise Up!)
We don’t need your help
We can save ourselves
(Rise Up!)
You can’t stop us

Let’s tear away these faces we hide behind
Cutting through the airwaves
Open up our minds
Show ourselves to the world tonight
Cause we are… No longer in disguise!

Tear away these faces
Tear away these faces
Tear away these faces

We’re no longer in disguise!
