On & On & On
Streetlight Manifesto Lyrics


I still remember that night, It was the fourth of July
It's still engraved in my mind and I'm not surprised
Gang wars, no guns, hand to hand
You're black. I'm white, he's purple
But I still don't understand
I'm going to be alright. I'm going to be okay
Everything is going to be fine
Back off. I want to be alone
I want to think it out and
I'm thinking that I want to go home

Look who's laughing now. I'll pull it off somehow
As I passed her by, I could see her cry
And I'll never forget the look that was in her eye
And the music you know it played on and on and on
So won't somebody tap her on the shoulder tell her life goes on

Three years, two months, one week, four days
I'm always counting down because there ain't no easier way
Trust me you know that I tried
And if I said it was easy then you know that I told a lie
I'm going to be alright. I'm going to be just fine
One down, five billion to go. Am I the next in line
And do I really want to know?

Look who's laughing now. I'll pull it off somehow
As I passed her by, I could see her cry
And I'll never forget the look that was in her eye
And the music you know it played on and on and on
So won't somebody tap her on the shoulder tell her life goes on

I still remember that night, It was the fourth of July
It's still engraved in my mind and I'm not surprised
Gang wars, no guns, hand to hand
You're black. I'm white, he's purple
But I still don't understand
I'm going to be alright. I'm going to be okay
Everything is going to be fine
Back off. I want to be alone
I want to think it out and
I'm thinking that I want to go

Three years, two months, one week, four days
I'm always counting down because there ain't no easier way
Trust me you know that I tried
And if I said it was easy then you know that I told a lie
I'm going to be alright. I'm going to be just fine
One down, five billion to go. Am I the next in line
And do I really want to know?

Look who's laughing now. I'll pull it off somehow
As I passed her by, I could see her cry
And I'll never forget the look that was in her eye
And the music you know it played on and on and on
So won't somebody tap her on the shoulder tell her life goes on

When I listen to this band, all my troubles seem small and I enjoy life.

Hell yeah brother

When first confronted with this version it felt blasphemous, I considered the original Keasbey Nights as the best third wave ska album. Over time though this version has really grown on me.

Alen -Spencer

Man, I just LOVE how they sing so freakin' fast :D

BigMonke

Alen -Spencer yeah it’s amazing much better than the stale catch 22

TheAllbrighton

Loving the use of Pachelbel's canon in this <3 it's subtle but such an awesome piece of music :D

TheAllbrighton glad im not the only one who caught that they snuck it in there

Parker DeRosier

My favorite band...saw them at a concert in october.

Nathan Coulombe

I love absolutely all of Kalnoky's work, but I still feel like BOTAR was his absolute musical prime in the regard of musical depth and complexity.
