Streetlight Manifesto Lyrics


You, you try, You try to get by.
"You're never going to pull it off",
"You shouldn't even try",
"You're a wet cigarette",
"You're always second best",
But they're never going to give a shit
About anybody but theirselves.
You fight for them to realize;
There's more to life,
There's more to you,
There's more than meets the eye.
And when you're done,
The battle's been won.
You sit back, you smile
And this is what you hum, you hum:

Woah oh oh oh oh oh
1234 1234

You, you try, You try to get by.
"You're never going to pull it off",
"You shouldn't even try",
"You're a wet cigarette",
"You're always second best",
But they're never going to give a shit
About anybody but themselves.
You fight for them to realize;
There's more to life,
There's more to you,
There's more than meets the eye.
And when you're done,
The battle's been won.
You sit back, you smile
And this is what you hum, you hum:

Woah oh oh oh oh oh
1234 1234

The years go by,
The time it does fly.
Every single second is a moment in time
That passes oh, so quick
And it seems like nothing,
But when you're looking back,
Well, it amounts to everything.
I've got myself. I've got my friends.
I've got my little family, but that's not where it ends.
This one goes out to you, it goes out to everyone.
It's in the name of honesty because life has just begun.

Woah oh oh oh oh oh
1234 1234

Look around little brother, can you tell me what you see?
You're a big boy now, so take responsibility.
You never had it hard, but now it's getting tough,
So you whine, whine, whine and you say you've had enough.
You say I'm full of shit, That I'm a hypocrite
I shouldn't talk, when I can't take the advice that I give?
Well maybe you're right, but open your eyes:
The main difference here is that I try, try,

Woah oh oh oh oh oh
1234 1234

im forever grateful my dad took me to see them live for my 16th birthday. it was to this song that i had to be patched up in the bathroom by a kind man who accidentally elbowed my face. he almost knocked out my tooth. 10/10 would experience again!
