Do you know what's worth fighting for,
When it's not worth dying for?
Does it take your breath away
And you feel yourself suffocating?
Does the pain weigh out the pride?
And you look for a place to hide?
Did someone break your heart inside?
You're in ruins

One, twenty one guns
Lay down your arms
Give up the fight
One, twenty one guns
Throw up your arms into the sky,
You and I

When you're at the end of the road
And you lost all sense of control
And your thoughts have taken their toll
When your mind breaks the spirit of your soul
Your faith walks on broken glass
And the hangover doesn't pass
Nothing's ever built to last
You're in ruins

One, twenty one guns
Lay down your arms
Give up the fight
One, twenty one guns
Throw up your arms into the sky,
You and I

Did you try to live on your own
When you burned down the house and home?
Did you stand too close to the fire?
Like a liar looking for forgiveness from a stone

When it's time to live and let die
And you can't get another try
Something inside this heart has died
You're in ruins

One, twenty one guns
Lay down your arms
Give up the fight
One, twenty one guns
Throw up your arms into the sky,

One, twenty one guns
Lay down your arms
Give up the fight
One, twenty one guns
Throw up your arms into the sky,
You and I

For Your Listening Pleasure

Reflections

Even though this song is about patriotism, the words I hear is of blind faith. Sometimes, not caring what the consequences are. Not weighting all the pros and cons. A horse with blinders just going forward, sometimes straight for the edge of the cliff and over. The momentum picks up, the ball keeps rolling, faster and faster down the hill, crushing everything in its path, no mercy for anything or anyone that stands in its way.

Facts & Figures

"A cell-phones-in-the-air anthem" is what MTV News reviewer called it. The second single from their 8th album 21st Century Breakdown, was one of the highest charting in their career. Sadly it was on e of their last too.
