[Maynard:]
Living on the street shores
He didn't learn and wanted children
Said, "What is there left to stay alive for?"
He doesn't wanna see it...

[Maynard:]
He didn't wanna deal with it
Here they come, feelings that come as natural
Whatever left, he considered a loss, y'all
He doesn't wanna see it...

[Maynard:]
Running away, getting some kinda cure
"What is there left to keep him alive?" she said
Give him your love, give him your love to save him
Give him your love, give him your love to save him

[Maynard:]
Give him your love, give him your love to save him
Don't run away, give him your love to save him
Give him your love, give him your love to save him
Give him your love...

[Zach screaming 2x:]
You can kill the revolutionary
But you can't kill the revolution
[Zach & Maynard screaming 2x:]
You can kill the revolutionary
But you can't kill the revolution

[Zach:]
Lies, negative indoctrination of our good selves
Promote feelings of such hopelessness, powerlessness
Suicide or a slower death from addiction
seemed to be the only way to stop the pain

[Maynard:] Running...

[Zach:]
Lies, negative indoctrination of our good selves
Promote feelings of such hopelessness, powerlessness
Suicide or a slower death from addiction
seemed to be the only way to stop the pain

[Zach:]
Suicide seemed to be the only way to stop the pain
Suicide seemed to be the only way to stop the pain

[Zach screaming 2x:]
You can kill the revolutionary
But you can't kill the revolution
[Zach & Maynard screaming 4x:]
You can kill the revolutionary
But you can't kill the revolution

    General CommentIt's not as good as 'Pretty Girls' but it's always heartwarming to see people rise above their disabilities. I hope they keep reaching for that rainbow and raise enough to pay for Maynard's surgery.

    General CommentI don't like this song :/

    RATM and Tool are just too different in my humble opinion. If not in their song meanings - but so very much in their musical style. And it just doesn't work in a way :o

    General CommentMusically Tool and Rage are actually quite similar. At least in the early days prior to Aenema. I don't think it clashes at all. Hey Ar3s what the hell are you talking about when you say theír song meanings are similar but their music is different. Tool has never written a song that's potically motivated. Do you people not like "Know your enemies" with Maynard. Tool puts off the sound of really beautiful(most of the time) singing with metal backing it up. Rage uses hip hop to stir things up. I don't really like hip hop, but I like rage and I think Maynard singing with
    Rage sounds fucking awsome. So yeah that's my humble opinion.

    General CommentIs this a live version? The quality is kinda crappy, and I can hardly understand what Maynard is saying, with lyrics.

    It's a good song though. Their different musical styles together is interesting.
