Roll On
*Note* Some of these lyrics are a little bit sketchy
but they sound alright so don't worry.

1 2 3 4!

Roll on!
Roll on!
Roll on!
Roll on!
Roll on!
Roll on!
Roll on!
Roll on!

We'll roll on
With our heads held high
Our conscience in the gutta
Our dreams up in the sky
We'll roll on
With our heads held high
Our conscience in the gutta
Our dreams up in the sky

The shipyards are deserted on the docks of Melvintown
The wealthy standing strong
They got it out to see what the Union had to say
There's too much work and not enough pay
SAY!

We'll roll on
With our heads held high
Our conscience in the gutta
Our dreams up in the sky
We'll roll on
With our heads held high
Our conscience in the gutta
Our dreams up in the sky

We're protesting peace, keep the whole thing quiet
The last thing needed is a wage field riot
'Cause they don't really care
They're always standin' there
Runnin' from the outside -
From the outside -
From the outside world (Alt: wall)

Yay!

Do you really care?
Why you standin' there?
Fearing from the outside world
Do you really care?
Why you standin' there?
Fearing from the outside world

Five weeks had passed when the union made it clear
Spirits slowly faded and the end was getting near
You see you're all expandable and when all is said and done
You'll go back to work tomorrow, meet your new replacement son

Roll on!
Roll on!
Roll on!

We'll roll on
With our heads held high
Our conscience in the gutta
Our dreams up in the sky
We'll roll on
With our heads held high
Our conscience in the gutta
Our dreams up in the sky


Roll on!
Roll on!
Roll on!
Roll on!
Roll on!
Roll on!
Roll on!
Roll on!back to top
Pictures in the Mirror
Living End - Pictures In The Mirror


Roll On - 2000

You know we tried to make you understand
We tried to make you realise
Her fame is down and time is up
But somehow it donít seem enough
ĎCos the world wouldnít listen anymore

Caught by social evil
Wasnít streetwise after all
Was she there at all?

Pictures in the mirror, pictures she never knew
Pictures in the mirror, always reflecting you
Not such an ordinary life

Pictures in the mirror (x2)

The sun goes down
The moon appears on the horizon
The streets are bare
She walks aloneback to top
Riot on Broadway
Living End - Riot On Broadway


Roll On - 2000

Pirate stations in the harbour
Sending a message to the wireless
A warning to all tonight
There'll be no remorse tonight
The flag is burning as we speak

So when the lights go out
You'll hear them scream and shout

Riot on Broadway
Lights out on the town
Riot on Broadway
Anger burns the city - to the ground

Secrets told and fears revealed
Peace is cheap and a smile's a steal
So the world lost it's beat
The world lost it's feet
Passed by while everyone was sleeping

So when the lights go out
You'll hear them scream and shout

Chorus

Well we won't run anymore, won't run
We won't run anymore
But we'll scream and shout

Riot! Riot!

Carry Me Home
Living End - Carry Me Home




He's gonna get you in the end
Then he'll be your only friend
There's nothing that'll save your soul
All you need is alcohol

Step right up and be a man (on your knees and pray)
Freedom's just another open bottle anyway

So one more round is all I need
Fill it up and let me be
It's getting late I should've known
Won't somebody carry me home?

Pick me up from my knees
Carry me home

We think you should know
It's time to go
No more to show
Yes it's time to go

6 AM it's closing time, the barman turns the lights out
I want another round so bring it on it's my shout

Don't leave me sitting here
Don't take me for a ride
Freedom's just another drink
Don't leave me hangin' dry

Step right up and be a man (on your knees and pray)
Freedom's just another open bottle anyway

So one more round is all I need
Fill it up and let me be
It's getting late I should've known
Won't somebody carry me home?

We think you should know
It's time to go
No more to show
Yes it's time to go

Don't Shut the Gate
Living End - Don't Shut The Gate




Isolate for protection
Put a gate on detention
Gotta make separation

Easy to slide and be hypnotised
Don't shut the gate

Investigate for correction
Single out a selection
Settle all apprehension

Easy to slide and be hypnotised
Don't shut the gate

Slam, shut, shut, shut, shut, shut, shut

Dirty Man
Living End - Dirty Man




Dirty man thinks he can get away with it
Not too bright, where's the light?
The occupant of his mind
Clean man, dirty thoughts should know better
After time he will find
That things don't work out his way

And if he were to be the public enemy
If he were to be the public enemy
And made a part of his (hey)
Made a part of his (hey)
Made a part of history

Like I was born on Saturday
Got buried on Sunday
Thought I'd never get caught
Feel like I just got married
And divorced in the one day
And it's not my fault
And it's not my fault
Now I've thrown it all away
And I have nowhere to go

Blind man, can't you see what you've become
All you made didn't pay
Now you're outside to dry
On the run, thought you could get away with it
Not too bright, where's the light?
The occupant of his mind

Like I was born on Saturday
Got buried on Sunday
Thought I'd never get caught
Feel like I just got married
And divorced in the one day
And it's not my fault
And it's not my fault
Now I've thrown it all away
And I have nowhere to go

Blood on Your Hands
Living End - Blood On Your Hands




Call to quit, stand up to vote
Before your dreams end up in smoke
Calling you out
All of your plans will be washed away
Washed away

Life is a sin (Life is a sin)
Living to win (Living to win)
And we're all sinners after all
We don't wanna listen to what you say
We're old enough to know better
You got blood on your hands
Can you hear me?
We don't wanna listen it's a waste of time
Are you for real?
You got blood on your hands
Can we be set free?

Fighting for peace with no identity
I know I speak for those around me
Calling you out
All of your plans will be washed away
Washed away

Life is a sin (Life is a sin)
Living to win (Living to win)
And we're all sinners after all
We don't wanna listen to what you say
We're old enough to know better
You got blood on your hands
Can you hear me?
We don't wanna listen it's a waste of time
Are you for real?
You got blood on your hands
Can we be set free?

When news becomes gossip and the hounds begin to bleed
The rich man's inspiration becomes the beggar's greed
And there's no way to stop it, servicing the need
Cuz the scared cry out, they possess an everlasting grief

Life is a sin
When you're not living to win
Life is a sin living to sin
We're all sinners after all
We don't wanna listen to what you say
We're old enough to know better
You got blood on your hands
Can you hear me?
We don't wanna listen it's a waste of time
Are you for real?
You got blood on your hands
Can we be set free?

Revolution Regained
Living End - Revolution Regained


Roll On - 2000

They came in the evening
Looking for a fight
The foreign Militia
Stole away our right

Three thousand miles away
Revolution regained
(Eyes) Eyes that lie and skin that scars

No introductions
Nothing left to say
See the destruction
How could it end this way?
This way?

Chorus

And in the evening
Something is seething
(Eyes) Eyes that lie and skin that scars

Chorus

And in the evening
Something is seething
(Eyes) Eyes that lie and skin that scars

Read About It
Living End - Read About It


Roll On - 2000

No rest for the wicked
No mercy for the rotten
Go create some madness

More coverage than the homeless
Your image here to stay
Your photo on the cover of
Your photo can't get enough

You and I, we read about it
We idolise the criminal mind
Is there a method in our madness?
And we fantasise of committing crimes
And so we remain

You're taken by the story
No escaping from the glory
Never to be forgotten
Now you're believin' in your press
You're not going anyway

Your Photo on the cover of
Your photo can't get enough

Chorus

And so we remain
And so we became
History remains
History todayback to top
Killing the Right
Living End - Killing The Right


Roll On - 2000

Killing the right - I don't wanna be a stolen boy

Show me the days of lying in the sun
Of stolen memories
I struggle to retain one
Seems like a phase that only just begun
A secret that was told
A reason now to run

Well the speakers start screaming - whoa
For the neighbourhood's dreaming - whoa
'Cos there is no meaning - whoa
It's not right it's a fucking outcry

Killing the right - I don't wanna be a stolen boy

It's a mistake no reason why
How did we fade from black to white

Taken away from lying in the sun
The signal's interrupted - corrupted
Are we all the same, are we all to blame
Happiness a tease, misery cemented

Well the speakers start screaming - whoa
For the neighbourhood's dreaming - whoa
'Cos there is no meaning - whoa
It's not right it's a fucking outcry

Chorus

Taxi, get me out of here
The voices tell me to be on my way
To turn and forget it for another day
But I don't want to listen to the voices any more

Astoria Paranoia
Living End - Astoria Paranoia




Is there something going on around me?
Is there something I should know?
The ghost of paranoia slips into my mind
And the dust it settles in
It's getting harder to remember
Just what it is I need to say
Another shadow in the memory
I'll never be the same again

So tell me where the fire is
And why is everybody running?
For all I know I could be losing my mind
And the dust it settles in

Whoa, lost inside my mind

Is there something going on around me?
Is there something I should know?
Everything just seems to vanish in the haze
And the dust it settles in

Whoa, lost inside my mind

In my head
Long to shed
Now we all are one

Whoa, lost inside my mind
Inside my mind

Uncle Harry
Living End - Uncle Harry


Roll On - 2000

Whoa
Uncle Harry pissing in the bath
Whoa, pissing in the bath
Uncle Harry pissing in the bath
Whoa, pissing in the bath again

Oh Uncle Harry youíve done it all again
Youíre pissing in the bath every now and then
I caught you in the wrong place
I caught you out of line
I tell you not to do it
But you do it all the time
Do it all the time

Whoa
Uncle Harry pissing in the bath
Whoa, pissing in the bath
Uncle Harry pissing in the bath
Whoa, pissing in the bath again

Poor Uncle Harry lost his mind along the way
Poor Uncle Harry happened twenty years today
Comes around to say hello
Little did we know
Heís up to his old dirty tricks again
Oh Uncle Harry, youíve done it all again

Oh Uncle Harry
We really shouldnít laugh
But every time we turn around
Youíre pissing in the bath
Itís just a silly habit
And we canít help but remind
We tell you not to do it
But you do it all the timeback to top

MY BAND--- I SING DUDE!-- www.the_underachievers.tripod.com


here goes:


well we dont need no one to tell us what to do
oh yes were on our own and theres nothing you can do
so we dont need no one like You
to tell us what to do!
we dont refer to the past when showing what weve done
a generation gap means a war is never won
the past is in your head
the futures in our hands!
cos im a brat, and i know everything and i talk back
cos im not listening to anything you say


and if you count to three (1..2..3!)
youll see its no emergency
youll seem im not the enemy
just a prisoner of socieieiety (listen to song and ull understand)


well we dont need no one to tell us what to do
oh yes were on our own and theres nothing you can do
so we dont need no one like You
to tell us what to do!
cos im a brat, and i know everything and i talk back

and if you count to three (1..2..3!)
