I’m sick and tired of the critics today,
All you cynics and you haters,
How you always act the same.
You open up your mouth but you’ve got nothing to say,
You can never make us go away, we will always remain.

We’ve got a chance now,
Shout it out, lay it down,
Everything we care about,
Now we do it for ourselves.
Yeah we do it for ourselves and no one else.
Not for anyone else.

Light, light, light this fire.
Turn it up, now, turn it up,
Louder than loud.
Please come back from the grave,
This time you can’t turn away.

You built us up just to watch us fall,
______________________________
We felt our world come to a stop,
Now we know that we are better off, yeah we’re better off.
You don’t know who we are, you don’t know who we are,
You’d best not tell us what we’re aiming to please,
But we won’t spend our lives on our knees.

We won’t give up, we won’t,
We won’t give up, we won’t.

Light, light, light this fire.
Turn it up, now, turn it up,
Louder than loud.
Please come back from the grave,
This time you can’t turn away,
Now we are destined to stay.

Light, light, light this fire.
Turn it up, now, turn it up,
Louder than loud.
Please come back from the grave,
This time you can’t turn away,
So step up, so step up, if you’ve got something to say.

We face our fears, chase our dreams,
We love our music, we love our fans,
When we go on tour we never hope it ends.
Every where we go, everywhere we’ve been,
This is who we are, this is all I am.

Light, light, light this fire.
Turn it up, now, turn it up,
Louder than loud.
Light, light, light this fire.

Light, light, light this fire.
Turn it up, now, turn it up,
Louder than loud.
Please come back from the grave,
This time you can’t turn away,
Now we are destined to stay.
Light, light, light this fire.

Turn it up, now, turn it up,
Louder than loud.
Please come back from the grave,
This time you can’t turn away,
So step up, so step up, if you have something to say.

    General CommentJust so everyone is clear, there were some words I couldn't quite pick up so I put in what I think. And one of the lines on there is literally a line and that's cause I didn't have a clue what they said. :P So if anyone picks up anything that's wrong with the lyrics, if you can comment them and I'll change them for you if I reckon you're right.

    As for what I think it means, I think they're talking about how much they love music and writing music, and people who criticize musicians piss them off a bit

    General CommentHey,
    well i think the part where it says You built us up just to watch us fall, goes on with " We all thought that we were good until we got that call" . Just searched on other lyrics sites where its not "good" but "gone" but i think it´s good and it makes more sense at all :D

    LOVE THIS BAND
