It's no big surprise
We turned out this way
It's in our eyes
Like shallow graves
But we are one with the larva and dirt
We don't discriminate at all
For what it's worth

So live young, die fast
No one will last
So sit back and relax
Enjoy the crash
You're fading to black and you're gone
Live young, die fast
Die fast

Young easy life
And untimely death
This doesn't work at all for me
So save your breath
You took your time
And stashed it away
Deep down inside of a cardboard box
Marked "rainy day"

Live young, die fast
No one will last
So sit back and relax
Enjoy the crash
It fades into black and it's gone
Live young, die fast

And I feel a miracle
In every breath that I breathe
Won't let this miracle
End in tragedy
I sense a miracle
In all that I see
Won't let this miracle
Slip away from me

Live young, die fast
No one will last
So sit back and relax
Enjoy the crash
It fades into black and it's gone
Live young, die fast
Live young, die fast
Die fast
Live young, die fast
No one will last
So sit back and relax
Enjoy the crash
It fades into black and it's gone
Live young, die fast
Die fast

    General CommentLast year a girl at my school was at a party when some guy drove through everyone with his car, she died. And the next day i looked at her bebo page and it said "Live Young, Die Fast"

    This song reminds me of that.

    General CommentThe lyrics are wrong.
    This part:
    It's not big surprise
    We turned out this way
    It's in our eyes
    Like shallow graves
    But we are one with the lover and grace

    Should say this:
    It's no big suprise we turned out this way
    It's in our eyes like shallow graves
    But we are one with the larvae and dirt


    Just thought I'd fix it :)

    General CommentGood song, but the acoustic version is better. Has an extra verse at the end and a better flow. For those who haven't heard it, it does the first 2 verses in a row with no chorus. Then it has the chorus and some of the better lyrics in the song...

    Tomorrow night,
    This tragedy,
    Will be filed under distant memory,
    I bit my tongue,
    And I let it bleed,
    I've never been big on originality

    Good stuff!
