"Live To Kill" as written by and Shane Told....
We live to kill each other
We are the wealthy and the poor
We shout but we don't listen
All we want is more

Shut the door
You're letting the darkness out
It's just about the time to watch you die
Close the blinds

We're hiding our skin from sun
Where you become yesterday's headlines
I never said that I was sorry

We live to kill each other
We are the wealthy and the poor
We shout but we don't listen
All we want is more

It will be beautiful
When I'm cashing in the life I stole
With the perfect sound at the perfect time
All the single words I forged to line

It is safe to say to forget your name
With the song I wrote on the stereo
I don't have to justify
Paying your dues is a waste of precious time
Why would you lead when you could follow?

We live to kill each other
We are the wealthy and the poor
We shout but we don't listen
All we want is more

More than we deserve
Realize our potential
Maximize our return
We'll conserve

A portrait of everything perfect
And aim every house has heard
I'd take it all and leave you nothing

We live to kill each other
We are the wealthy and the poor
We shout but we don't listen
All we want is more

We live to kill each other
We are the wealthy and the poor
We shout but we don't listen
All we want is more

All we want is more
All we want is more

    General CommentVerse correction -

    It will be beautiful when I'm cashing in the life I stole,
    With the perfect sound at the perfect time, while they sing the words I forced to rhyme.
    And it's safe to say they'll forget your name, when the song I "wrote" is The Stereo.
    I don't have to justify, paying your dues is a waste of precious time.
    Why would you lead when you could follow?
    We live to kill each other
    We are the wealthy and the poor
    We shout but we don't listen
    All we want is more than we deserve, realize our potential, maximize our return.
    We'll conserve a portrait of everything perfect, a name every house has heard.
    I'll take it all, you leave nothing.

    General CommentShane: "This song is taking a shot at the "rivalry" so many bands out there seem to have with each other. I find it annoying and childish when bands think they deserve more than another band, or are "bigger" or whatever. During the last 11 years, I've seen it all: bands come from nothing and turn into millionaires and lose it all just as fast. This song is about that, and about the greed so many artists have."
