Jonny Sniper
Enter Shikari Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

Rise, taste the air, lock and load, pull the trigger
Climb, to new heights, and tell me, tell me what you hear

A whisper from the wind, and I can't help but listen
It warns us of disaster, and I can't help but wonder
Can anyone hear the same distress call?

So this is a quest to save the world
And he'll always be here for another
Another day another chance to rescue

(Okay Jonny, lock and load)
This is all I need to feel alive
(Remember now, aim small, missed mark)

The crashing of white waves and I can't help but listen
The screaming of the Earth, and I can't help but

So this is a quest to save the world
And he'll always be here for another
Another day, another chance to rescue

This is all I need to feel alive, (oh yeah)
(Hey Jonny)
This is all I need to feel alive

Way to save the world
Way to save the world
Way to save the world
Way to save the world

So this is a quest to save the world
And he'll always be here for another
Another day, another chance to rescue

So this is a quest to save the world
And he'll always be here for another
Another day, another chance to rescue

This is all I need to feel alive
This is all I need to feel alive
This is all I need to feel alive
This is all I need to feel alive
This is all I need to feel alive
This is all I need to feel alive




This is all I need to feel alive
This is all I need to feel alive
