don't be afraid
because there is no escape
and it won't be long now
won't be long now
they got you thinking
what you wanna believe
just to fall with no better way
when you wear the right clothes
sing the right songs
buy it and turn it on
when you date the right crowd
drive the right car
tune in and plug it on

came looking here for answers
and all you found was
questions for forgiveness
we're giving ourselves away
human life replacement
love is gone to waste
questions for forgiveness
we're giving ourselves away
human life replacement
love is gone to waste
but now
we're finding out
what we knew better
no number can ever replace me
we're finding out
what we know better
no number can ever replace me

first comes to school
then comes the job
wife and two kids
and a family car
we're all born in line
and waiting to die
and forward a block on the wall
and another new award
on a corporate statistic
of a government job
well I don't need no reading
for the beat of my heart
you nihilists working over
because you're tooting your horn
because your feeding is to
strangle art in every form

came looking here for answers
and all you found was
questions for forgiveness
we're giving ourselves away
human life replacement
love is gone to waste
questions for forgiveness
we're giving ourselves away
human life replacement
love is gone to waste
but now
we're finding out
what we knew better
no number can ever replace me
we're finding out
what we know better
no number can ever replace me

came looking here for answers
and all you found was questions
came looking here for answers
and all you found was

questions for forgiveness
we're giving ourselves away
human life replacement
love is gone to waste
questions for forgiveness
we're giving ourselves away
human life replacement
love is gone to waste
but now
we're finding out
what we knew better
no number can ever replace me
we're finding out
what we know better
no number can ever replace me

    General CommentI really suprised that there aren't more comments on this song. Rx Bandits is a truly great band, and this is one of my favorite songs by them. I've been trying to get their music to people I know. I'm really suprised that they aren't more popular. Anyway, kick ass song.

    General CommentI totally agree with Zephyr, spread the word. Those Bandits are great! They are my definite favorite ska band. The first song I heard from them was S.A.M, wow. I am totally infatuated with those guys. Matt is like a lyric master, his songs always hit me hard with their meanings. I live in MS, and there is NO ska scene here. I make sure all my friends hear the RxBandits, with it being in my truck or just me playing it at work. Spread the word, those guys are great. Peace out.

    General CommentI heard this was on a previous album, yet i can't find the older version of the song. I can only find it on The Resignation. This album is pure genius.

    General Commentthis is a really great band, one of the few that actaully writes lyrics about something meaningful like how fucked up society and the government is unlike other bands who usually just whine about girls and not being cool. this is also my favorite song by them they are awesome AND they are good acoustic too
