if you don't stand for what you want,
it won't be this good.
you won't feel alive,
you'll be barely there,
barely breathing.
you can't sell us out,
we won't compromise ourselves.
if you don't stand for something,
we'll fall for anything.

would you believe,
your words are not the same?
because i think you don't.

lights out but we'll keep singing,
we've lost faith in everything,
you can't save us,
but we can save ourselves.

even though we can't change,
the mechanics of,
you won't feel alive,
in this industry.
you're barely breathing.
now it's time to stop,
to stop buying into lines.

if we don't stand for something,
we'll fall for anything.
if you don't stand for something,
you'll fall for anything.

we can rely on you to keep us going,
keep us going.
so we put our dreams on tape for you.

we've lost faith in this industry,
we've lost faith.

    General CommentThis song is totally named after the local band in Ontario called Shotgun Rules, who the Fully Down are close friends with. I believe Shotgun Rules has a song named after the Fully Down as well.
    Such an amazing song.
