"Blood On Your Hands" as written by and Christopher John Cheney....
Call to quit, stand up to vote
Before your dreams end up in smoke
Calling you out
All of your plans will be washed away
Washed away

Life is a sin (Life is a sin)
Living to win (Living to win)
And we're all sinners after all

We don't wanna listen to what you say
We're old enough to know better
You got blood on your hands
Can you hear me?
We don't wanna listen it's a waste of time
Are you for real?
You got blood on your hands
Can we be set free?

Fighting for peace with no identity
I know I speak for those around me
Calling you out
All of your plans will be washed away
Washed away

Life is a sin (Life is a sin)
Living to win (Living to win)
And we're all sinners after all

[Chorus]

When news becomes gossip
And the hounds begin to bleed
The rich man's inspiration
Becomes the beggar's greed
And there's no way to stop it
Servicing the need
'Cause the scared cry out
They possess an everlasting grief

Life is a sin
When you're not living to win
Life is a sin living to sin
We're all sinners after all

    General Commentamazing song. another great song, sort of like "prisoner of society" in staking the youth's claim in the world.

    not just the lyrics, but damn can TLE produce some great sounds or what?!

    General CommentWell that's what happens when you have enough skill and musical understanding to be able to blend all these different styles into one seemless sound: you get something that's sonically incredible.

    General CommentBaller is 100% correct. Anyway, love the lyrics, the base rocks on this song, i reckon the song isn't easily explained, their are a lot of hidden meanings to this one, well, maybe it's just me, i don't know... It rocks anyway, each verse, each riff, it's fucking awesome!

    General Commenti love all the different part sin this song! it just works so well together! yeah, it's like prisoner of society in relation to meaning, but the "can we be set free?" bit is kinda says that they are trapped. but lovin it none the less.

    We don't wanna listen to what you say
    We're old enough to know better
    You got blood on your hands
    Can you hear me?
    We don't wanna listen it's a waste of time
    Are you for real?
    You got blood on your hands
    Can we be set free?
