This Is How It Goes
Every body is tired and poor and sick of trying!
If you see me on a corner will you stop or will you splash me?
Take a look at what we've become,nothing more than silhouettes of
A pretty family on a postcard picture perfect,I don't want it!

So I hold my breath until my heart explodes!
Cause this is how it is and this is how it goes!
You can steal my body but you can't steal my soul!
Cause this is how it is and this is how it goes!

shitty weather,Bad timing,lucky penny glued to the ground!
Dirty look from total stranger,hope you get lost and you're not found,
Take a look at what we've become,nothing more than silhouettes of
A pretty family on a postcard picture perfect,I don't want it!


So I hold my breath until my heart explodes!
Cause this is how it is and this is how it goes!
You can steal my body but you can't steal my soul!
Cause this is how it is and this is how it goes!

This is,how it,it goes!

So unscrew my head,and then rinse it out,
Polish my thoughts,turn into doubts!

So I hold my breath until my heart explodes!
Cause this is how it is and this is how it goes!
You can steal my body but you can't steal my soul!
Cause this is how it is and this is how it goes!back to top
Living in the Shadows
Constant quick fixes, they don't make no sense
Hop on bandwagons, you make me sick

Don't you tell me, what you think it right!
When you are living in the shadows
I can tell that, you have lost your sight!
When you are living in the shadows

Distant loud chuckles, keep me awake
Akward instances won't make you hip

Don't you tell me, what you think it right!
When you are living in the shadows
I can tell that, you have lost your sight!
When you are living in the shadows

We've said this all before, your shadow's at the door,
We've said this all before, your shadow's at the door,
There's darkness in the hall and we won't take the fall!

Don't you tell me, what you think it right!
When you are living in the shadows
I can tell that, you have lost your sight!
When you are living in the shadowsback to top
Try Honesty
Ok...I'm absolutely positive these are right because i read them on the
Billy Talent Official website and in the lyrics book with the CD.

I tripped, fell down naked
I scratched my knees they bled
Sew up my eyes, need no more
In our game, there is no score

Forgive me father why should ya bother
Try honesty, try honesty
Hop in your dump truck, reverse for good luck
Ride over me, ride over me
Take on the whole world, fight with the young girls
Die tragedy, die tragedy
Call me a cheapskate, come on for pete's sake
Cry agony, cry agony

Insane assault, so sly
Your well of lies ran dry
I cut the cord, free fall
From so high we seem so small

Forgive me father why should ya bother
Try honesty, try honesty
Hop in your dump truck, reverse for good luck
Ride over me, ride over me
Take on the whole world, fight with the young girls
Die tragedy, die tragedy
Call me a cheapskate, come on for pete's sake
Cry agony, cry agony

I'm insane, it's your fault... cry

Forgive me father, why should ya bother now
Forgive me father, why should ya bother now

Forgive me father why should ya bother
Try honesty, try honesty
Hop in your dump truck, reverse for good luck
Ride over me, ride over me
Take on the whole world, fight with the young girls
Die tragedy, die tragedy
Call me a cheapskate, come on for pete's sake
Cry agony, cry agony

Lies
Song:Lies
Artist: Billy Talent
Brought by Anthony D

I think eveything's right.

Verse 1
Forced conversation! (Lost!)
Hidden agenda! (Lost!)
You think we're stupid how dare you
The rug has not been pulled,over our eyes you fool!
We can see right through!

Tip toeing villain! (Lost!)
Eyes in the ceiling! (Lost!)
Your false intentions have worn thin
But we've been in your room, and your closet too!
We've got one on you!

Chorus
Lies make it better
Lies are forever
Lies to go home to
Lies to wake up to
Lies from the altar
Lies make you falter
Lies keep your mouth fed
Lies till your death bed
Lies

Verse 2
Inside an office! (Lost!)
A fallen angel! (Lost!)
A smiling Buddha with snake eyes
Creates the latest trends!
And I just can't pretend!
Don't call me your friend!!

Well all these..

Chorus
Lies make it better
Lies are forever
Lies to go home to
Lies to wake up to
Lies from the altar
Lies make you falter
Lies keep your mouth fed
Lies till your death bed

Lies they make it better!
Lies they are forever!
Lies to go home to
Lies!! to wake up to!!
Lies from the altar!!
Lies they make you falter!!
Lies keep your mouth fed!!
Lies till your death bed!!

Lies!!

Lies will come back to hunt you!
Bullet proof your limousine
Lies will come back to hunt you!
Hit and run a broken dream!

Lies make it better
Lies are forever
Lies to go home to
Lies to wake up to
Lies from the altar
Lies make you falter
Lies keep your mouth fed
Lies till your death bed

Lies they make it better!
Lies they are forever!
Lies to go home to
Lies to wake up to!!
Lies from the altar!!
Lies they make you falter!!
Lies keep your mouth fed!!
Lies till your death bed!!

Standing in the Rain
My head, it hurts, each day it's getting worse,
My looks and smile have now become my curse,
Tight lips, red skirt the never ending street,
Big car, little man, my lover for a fee...

So if ya see me will ya just drive on by
Or will I catch the twinkle inside your eye?
And if ya want me, well, I guess I want you
Oh pretty baby how could you!

Standing in the rain...
Milk carton mug shot baby missing since 1983,
Standing in the rain...
20 years of dirty needles rain drops running through my veins!

My head, it hurts, each day it's getting worse,
No sun, my room has now become my hearse,
Cold sores, I'm beat got bruises on my feet,
My pride, these men have taken it from me!

So if ya see me will ya just drive on by
Or will I catch the twinkle inside your eye?
And if ya want me, well, I guess I want you
Oh pretty baby how could you!

Standing in the rain...
Milk carton mug shot baby missing since 1983,
Standing in the rain...
20 years of dirty needles rain drops running through my veins!

So if ya see me will ya just drive on by
Or will I catch the twinkle inside your eye?
And if ya want me, well, I guess I want you
Oh pretty baby how could you!

Standing in the rain...
Milk carton mug shot baby, mother I have lost my wayback to top
Cut the Curtains
My girl,you're so hot when you walk you melt snow
And now that disco has finally grown old
Let's buy back our souls

So let's see,we've got five bucks between you and me
My mental dishes are finally clean
So cleared are we

Cut the curtains the actros have gone home
Intermission's a mission on it's own

Now here,seems our wax wings have melted away
And we've only been here for one day
My faith fades away

So don't be,a gray cloud when there's none in the sky
We found there's no hidden treasures to find
At least we tried...

Cut the curtains the actros have gone home
Intermission's a mission on it's own
Cut the curtains the actros have gone home
Grab your suitcase,we don't have time to fold

There is no doubt you throw your inbox out

Cut the curtains the actros have gone home
Intermission's a mission on it's own
Cut the curtains the actros have gone home
Grab your suitcase,we don't have time to fold

We don't have no time to foldback to top
Prisoners of Today
I never bite off more than I can chew but then she came and bit me,
I never bite off more than I can chew but then she bit my leg,
She said "don't wanna work I wanna play and live my life like it was Sunday!"
"The only problem is that Sunday only comes now once a week and I'm a freak but..."

We're breaking up the city,
no time for wasting away,
so tell me why should we stay,
prisoners of today!

My body is tired my souls excited and I wish that I was gifted,
My body is tired my souls excited and I wish I had some spunk,
She said " I wanna run, I wanna hide, and leave this place just like it left me"
"The only problem is I need to find the balls to follow through and that's the truth now..."

We're breaking up the city,
no time for wasting away,
so tell me why should we stay,
prisoners of today!

When there's no time for one another?

Cause this is our time and our place...
History I can't erase!

We're breaking up the city,
no time for wasting away,
so tell me why should we stay,
prisoners of today!

When there's no time for one another?
There's no time for one another?back to top
Nothing to Lose
Lyrics inside {}s are spoken
Lyrics inside ()s are sung by back-up
Lyrics with ! mark at the end are shouted

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

{Need more friends with wings.
All the angels I know put concrete in my veins.
I'd always walk home alone.
So I became lifeless just like my telephone.}

(There's nothing to lose)
When no-one knows your name.
(There's nothing to gain)
But the days don't seem to change.

Never play truth or dare.
I'd have to check my mirror to see if I'm still here.
My parents had no clue.
That I ate all my lunches alone in the bathroom.

(There's nothing to lose)
When no-one knows your name.
(There's nothing to gain)
But the days don't seem to change.

(There's nothing to lose)
My notebook will explain.
(There's nothing to gain)
And I can't fight the pain.

Teacher said its just a phase.
When I grow up my children will probably do the same.
Kids just love to tease.
Who'd know it'd put me underground at 17?.

(There's nothing to lose)
When no-one knows your name.
(There's nothing to gain)
But the days don't seem to change.

(There's nothing to lose)
My notebook will explain.
(Theres nothing to gain)
And I can't fight the pain.

(There's nothing to lose)
When no-one knows your name!
(There's nothing to gain)
But the days don't seem to change.

(There's nothing to lose)
When no-one knows your name!
(There's nothing to gain)
And I just died today..back to top
Voices of Violence
Don't wait for,a knight in shining armour
Your savior's,reflected in the mirror
These flowers,have grown from bloodstains on the ground!

Go rake the,leaves of your grass and my grave
the fact is,Everyone bleeds when they shave
There's no use,So don't deny we're just the same!

We'll take it back!
Broken dagger,southern swagger
Voices of violence

These cowboys,will ride off in the sunset
Once their toys,have turned another profit
Back fire,their smoking guns will never rest!

Unleash the,skeletons from the closet
These stranger,are friend that you never met
They'll send them,sympathies with a hallmark card

We'll take it back!
Broken dagger,southern swagger
Voices of violence

Even after I'm dead and buried,I'll still remember
Even after I'm dead and buried,I'll come back fighting!

We'll take it back!
Broken dagger,southern swagger
Voices of violence

Voices of violence will always be heardback to top
