A moment of silence please for those who never get the chance,
They show to the party , yeah, but they're never asked to dance.
The losers and the liars and the bastards and the thieves,
the cynicists, yeah the pessemists, and those who don't believe in nothing.

I never met a loser that I didn't see eye to eye with, I declare,
I stare into your eyes, you look right past me into the air,
What's it like to stand in your shoes,
To have never felt the belt of somebody's abuse,
And I, I take the bottle, yeah, I tip it to all my heroes that have passed,
Alas, you have left us but your stories they will last,
Uninspired by the recruiting call,
Independent we stand and independent we fall.

So tell me: how long do you think you can go before you lose it all,
Before they call your bluff and watch it fall?
I don't know, but I'd like to think I had control,
At some point, but I let it go and lost my soul.
Sit tight, but the revolutions years away,
I'm losing faith, yeah, I'm running low on things to say,
So I guess I have no choice but to regurgitate,
The tired anthem of a loser and a hypocrite.

Oh, to have died that night, I realize it wouldn't last,
Our days were numbered, yeah, the reaper tipped the hour glass,
The final mayday of our sinking ship had come and passed.
Oh, to the west you don't know what it is you're running from,
But everybody's laughing loud,
The last chance to make your mother and your father proud.

Woah, oh, oh
Woah, oh, oh
Woah, oh, ohoh
Woah, oh

A moment of silence, please, for those that never get the chance,
They'll show up to the party, but they're never asked to dance.
Oh, the losers and the liars yeah the bastards and the thieves,
The cynicists, yeah the pessimists, and those that don't believe in nothing.

They said "a pox, upon your house, upon your family,
And everyone you ever knew and everyone you'll ever meet."
I bet they think we wish we joined when we could,
But we do what we want, and we don't do what we should, yeah.
Everybody's laughing, yeah they're thinking they're in on something I don't get,
Don't forget, I connect and read every word you said,
Like a child who believes he was wronged,
If you hate me so much then stop singing my songs.

And tell me:
How long do you think you can go before you lose it all,
Before they call your bluff and watch it fall?
I don't know, but I'd like to think I had control,
At some point, but I let it go and I lost my soul.
Sit tight, but the revolutions years away,
I'm losing faith, yeah I'm running low on things to say,
So I guess I have no choice but to regurgitate,
The tired anthem of a loser and a hypocrite.

Oh, to have died that night, I realized it wouldn't last,
Our days were numbered, yeah the reaper tipped the hour glass,
The final mayday of our sinking ship had come and passed.

Oh, to the west you don't know what it is you're running from,
And everybody's laughing loud,
The last chance to make your mother and your father proud.

woah, oh, oh
Woah, oh, ohoh
woah, oh, ohoh,
woah, oh, oh
