all Anti-Flag lyrics



I Can't Stand Being With You
Everything that you did
Everything that you said
You may as well be down at the mall
Because that's no different,
Than being at the bar
I saw that look in your eyes
It made me realize
That you changed, changed from what you were
And now you're no better than a pop culture whore

I can't stand being with you
I can't stand that bar scene that you're into
Can't you see what you've become,
It's every fucking thing that you swore you'd always snub
I can't stand being with, being with

Sit there like all the old fools
Perched up high on your bar stool
One day you told me, "i'll never be like them.."
But i don't see a difference from the outside looking in
All the punks at the bar
Like they could start up a war
Revolution plotted in a bottle,
The thought makes me laugh and i turn on some nirvana

I can't stand being with you
I can't stand that bar scene that you're into
Can't you see what you've become,
It's every fucking thing that you swore you'd always snub
I can't stand being, being with you being with you, being with

I can't stand being with you
I can't stand that bar scene that you're into
Can't you see what you've become,
It's every fucking thing that you swore you'd always snub
I can't stand being with,
Being with you being with you,
Being with you, being withback to top
Their System Doesn't Work for You
"Their System Doesn't Work For You"

One day while sitting in my room
You came in preaching
Your words predicting doom
You've never once been
Happy with me,
Because I'm not
What you want me to be..No!!!
You tried to teach me
To pray and go to school
You tried to teach me
To be the system's tool
But you missed
What I was smart enough to see
That their system doesn't work
For you or me

Oh..Don't believe what they say is true
Oh..Their system doesn't work for you
Oh..You can be what you want to be
Oh..Don't have to choose

To join the corporate army
For god and country give up your life,
Don't try to figure out what's wrong or right
You never tried to stop, to look, to see
That you're exactly what you're told to be
You did everything fucking right
You followed the system's guiding light
And now you fucking bitch to me
To fucking get a job,
When you don't like
That life you've got
You fucking corporate whore
For you or me

Oh..Don't believe what they say is true
Oh..Their system doesn't work for you
Oh..You can be what you want to be
Oh..Don't have to choose

To join their corporate army
Don't have to choose
To join their corporate army
Dont have to choose, don't have to choose
To join their corporate armyback to top
We've Got His Gun
"We've Got His Gun"

Dad keeps a gun in the drawer in his room,
My best friend is coming over to play
yeah yeah
We got his gun
We're having fun
Tryin to find where the bad guys are
i pull the trigger and shoot my friend
oh no

oh no [x4]

run in the house grab the phone and call for help
they said "hold on, we'll be right there"
yeah
now help has come
they got the gun
try to bring him back to life
but its too late he is dead
oh no

oh no [x4]

I've watched the news
For many days
this happens every week
this happens in your town
dont keep a gun in your house
dont keep a gun in your house

oh no [x4]back to top
Born to Die
Hey i have this song tabbed for guitar so ill post that later
but for now you'll have to deal with this.

Verse 1:
He knew he was gonna get it bad when his dad bailed him out of jail
Leading him from the station by handful of his hair
He said, "What am i gonna do with you boy i jsut don't understand
what the hell makes you act this way"
And looking back this lost punk said he said

I found it dad
i found the meaning of life
Your only born so you can die

She was showered with money
She was showered with jewels
But her dad beat on her every day and night
And there wasn othing she could do
She cut her wrists at seventeen
Everyone wondered why
She had it all
She was rich and pretty but alone each night she'd cry

She found it now
She found the maning of life
You're only bor so you can die

Guitar Birdge thing

They found it now
They found the meaning of life
You're only born so you can die

That's it
if you have any ?'s (which i dont think you will)
regarding this or anything else i have posted email me at

The Truth
"The Truth"

They feed us brainrot, and tell us that it's true
Dan Rather is reporting something but it isn't news
It's molded, and folded, and beamed into your home
The next minute you find yourself dying for fucking oil...

Immediate - Reaction, to the brainrot in your mind
Immediate - Subtraction, to the time left in your life
Immediate - Reaction, to the brainrot in your mind
Immediate - Substraction, but all we really want,
all we really want, is truth

Bred into silence by television sets
Accepting lies from media so soon we will forget
The lives that we spend as workers for the rich
You work so much there's no time left to realize
that you're in a fucking ditchback to top
You'll Scream Tonight
Last night i turned on my tv set
And i couldn't believe what was on
Some fucking rich kid crying cause her,
Her boyfriend left her cold
Well why the fuck is this shit playing over air?
To make us feel sorry for some fucking millionaire?
Well i was getting sick and i was getting mad,
I took a chair and smashed it right into the set
Some fucking businessman is crying "boo-fucking-hoo.."
As he stops and thinks of all the "poor suckers" he screwed
Well i said, fuck this propaganda,
Fuck the news,
It just controls your minds it fills your, head with crap!

You'll scream tonight,
So throw it away
You'll scream tonight,
So stay away,
Stay away

It's a commercial about some barbie type clone blonde
She's six foot four and only weighs one hundred pounds
She looks so natural like a fucking starving child
They sell her body and her self esteem out loud
Some old man sits the drooling at this fucking smut
"If she'd take off her shirt, well that would be good luck!"
"What was she advertising for anyways?"
He can't remember, "but she sure had killer legs..."
Degrading women well it's,
Nothing new he's got a hard on now
And that's just, fucking, "great news"

You'll scream tonight,
So throw it away
You'll scream tonight,
So stay away,
Stay awayback to top

20 Years of Hell
I've stood by and I've cried
While my friends have died
you ever have a friend kill
themselves, shot down, or
knifed?
just when I think it's happened
for the final time,
it comes knocking back again to
devastate my life
20 years of hell
20 years of hell
for I've been living for to long
and I wish that my life was done
I said, good bye to you on a
summer's night
now i wish that i had stayed
with you but oh it's too late
next thing I knew was that
you'd been in an attack
and you were laying in a cold
morgue stuffed into a body bag
20 years of hell
20 years of hell
for I've been living for too long
and I wish my life was done
I saw you last night you said I
was wrong and where'd I get the idea you
were gone?
I woke up to sounds of my own screams
I woke up in a sweat it was just a dream
and that dream goes on and on and on....
will it ever end? well I don't..I don't know
I don't...know...back to top
I'm Having a Good Day

I Don't Want to Be Like You
"I Don't Want To Be Like You"

see you there, youve got a cold blank stare
and you wish i was, but im not
and you? well now you just dont get it
its the hate in your eyes. its the hate in you heart
i stand there and laugh as they cut you apart
kill people for fun, kill people for sport

[Chorus x4]
i dont want to be like you
i dont want to control you

all day big brother schemes. and into the night
they push you down, push you around
grab on hold of your mind. over run it
and crush it(break you down)
but you dont know
because nobody know
because nobody cares
because nobody tries
they cut into your heart, they cut into your mind

[Chorus Repeat]back to top
Betty Sue Is Dead
Sittin' home on a Saturday night
I can't believe she called me
I've beening waitin' for my whole life
and now she's dead

Betty Sue..is dead!
Betty Sue...

Sittin' home on a Saturday night
I've got nothin' better to do
then to sit here and play with myself
now that she's dead

Betty Sue...is dead!
Betty Sue...

(speaking)This song is about my girlfriend from 1953.
She was the hottest girl in town. But nobody liked
her except for me.

She was bi-sexual...bi-sexual (no way) bi-sexual (heh wow)
there's no such thing as a bi-sexual in 1953!
(say that again)
there's no such thing as a bi-sexual in 1953!

She died yesterday (oh..oh) in a car wreck (oh..oh)
looking at her playboy..and now she's dead!

She died yesterday (oh..oh) in a car wreck (oh..oh)
a large price to pay to be a pervert

Betty Sue...is dead!
Betty Sue...

...to be a pervert!

Betty Sue...is dead!
Betty Sue is dead.

oh yeah she's one dead girl!back to top
