"The Story" as written by Wesley Louden Borland, William Frederick Durst, Samuel Robert Rivers and Sam Siegler....
just live and let die
check, check, check, comon
if you could take a minute of your life
a certain minute when you feel the lightning strike
danger is the only level of that moment
but it's your moment and you know you'll fucking own it.
glorified in the grace by your victory
when your done, you escape without memory
blindfolded through this life as we learn
and consequences when the wrong pages turn

it's an E! true hollywood story
take a man down with his own glory
now guess who's next

at some point we come down from the highs
it's no big deal we move on with our lives ??????
and some of us let the last color cries ?????
do the math, you can laugh when I die
if life is just a fantasy life then could you
live this fantasy life for soemthing would you
just remember that the ??? are not posable
and the mother fucking heroes are dispsable

it's an E! true hollywood story
take a man down with his own glory
now guess who's next

it's an E! true hollywood story
take a man down with his own glory
now guess who's next

Just live and let die
just live an let
just live and let
just live and let die

Just live and let die
just live an let
just live and let

so what about the hardcore that ain't hard anymore
or the shit talkers who ain't shit anymore
or the old fighters that can't fight anymore
or the white kid's who ain't white any more
or the actors that don't act anymore
or the rappers that don't rap anymore
or the hipsters that don't hip anymore
or the limpsters that don't limip anymore

Just live and let die
just live an let
just live and let
just live and let die

Just live and let die
just live an let
just live and let

but no
it's impossible
just to live your live your life
and let us die
oh mother fuck that
you want to talk about some shit
let's talk about

the hardcore that ain't hard anymore
or the shit talkers who ain't shit anymore
or the old fighters that can't fight anymore
or the white kid's who ain't white any more
or the actors that don't act anymore
or the rappers that don't rap anymore
or the hipsters that don't hip anymore
or the limpsters that don't limip anymore

it's an E! true hollywood story
take a man down with his own glory
now guess who's next

it's an E! true hollywood story
take a man down with his own glory

    General CommentThis song is about how fame can often lead to your downfall, (take a man down with his own glory) and that hollywood, fame etc. is not as great as it seems

    "glorified and embraced by your victory
    when you're done, you escape that memory"

    When you're on top, you have the highest popularity, legion of fans and you're all over tv, but that popularity decreases, the fans move on, and you never get any time because of other, bigger stars.

    "blindfolded through this life as we learn
    and consequence when the wrong page is turned"

    You are blind to the fact that fame will soon fuck up your life, as your too busy enjoying the spotlight during your 15 minutes of fame, however make one wrong move, people will change their opinion and move on to the next best thing.

    "at some point we come down from the highs
    and so be it, we move on with our lives"

    Acceptance that your 15 minutes of fame are up

    "if life is just a fantasy life
    then could you live this fantasy life?
    If so, then would you?"

    He is asking if you could really take this brillaint lifestyle despite the horrific outcome.

    "just remember that the doors are not closeable
    and your motherfucking heroes are disposable"

    Saying once you go in, there's no coming back, plus you're hereoes are soon to end up fucked over because of this lifestyle everyone wants

    "let's talk about the
    hardcore that ain't hard anymore
    or the shit talkers who ain't shit anymore
    or the old fighters that can't fight anymore
    or the white kids who ain't white any more
    or the actors that don't act anymore
    or the rappers that don't rap anymore
    or the hipsters that don't hip anymore
    or the limpsters that can't limp anymore"

    About how the fans will abandon you in a heartbeat because of a new trend. Some really great lyrics in this song!

    General CommentI see you motherfucker suck because from your saying i understand you don't like LB.
    If you can think of anything you want why can't Fred think of a word f.e. "limpster"?
    This song is so amazing, i think it's just about understanding some purpose of life, "just live & let die" - shows that the artist agrees with life and he's no longer that angry.
    "Just live & let die" line is so amazing!

    General CommentWell you definitely live up to your name "Klown". "Limpsters" is not a f**king word... so you can't blame the first post for mockingly pointing that out! Anyways, on to the meaning.

    This song is about the second skin that comes with life in the spotlight and points out the fact that all the glamour (I'm Canadian, we spell it with a 'u') eventually comes to an end. He goes further to demonstrate that it happens everyday and it's a part of life, we all have a story (maybe not on E!Hollywood) and they all have a beginning, a climax and a conclusion. That's why you have to hold on to your greatest memories and cherish them, because social status doesn't matter... its all about what it means to you!
