Dying Light (The Good Die Young)

lyrics

either way
and we all live on while the good die young

there's no tomorrow guaranteed today- we're all gonna die anyway
roll the dice, you don't get to live twice
it's like smoking cigarettes and holding sticks of dynamite

round and around we go (spiraling towards the earth)
and nothin matters maybe don't you know? (i can't tell which is worse)

(either way) this life exhausts everyone
(either way) the light dies like a setting sun
(either way) until walking dead- we have become
(either way) and we all live on while the good die young

the time we borrow- is just wasting away
while false idols remain on display (FUCK KANYE)
genuine people are a dying light
if real recognize real, i must be losing sight.

the frustration's building up in me (can't you see?)
i'm not alone but it's all i can see (grab your kerosene)

(either way) this life exhausts everyone
(either way) the light dies like a setting sun
(either way) until walking dead- we have become
(either way) and we all live on while the good die young

it's hard to be a burning joint, in a world so cold
we are screaming for connection, but you're stuck on your phones
and if you haven't noticed, something's terribly wrong
we all wanna save the world but- we wanna be left alone

(either way) this life exhausts everyone
(either way) the light dies like a setting sun
(either way) until walking dead- we have become
(either way) and we all live on while the good die young

the good die young
the good die youngggg
the good die youngggg

rage. rage. rage.
they'll take and take and take and take
everything you have, everything you love, everything you are
till all you have is nothing left
nothing left to say, nothing left to do, nothing left to hide
but now there's nothing left to lose
let your light shine, let your light shine, let your light

about

Versa Nova Houston, Texas

We come from the land of the crack rock.

Twin chemical smoke stacks are the backdrop

We go to war, spit blood on the blacktop

We're kings of the kingdom of shit, and home is where the beat drops.
