The Classic Crime Lyrics


Sick with regret you sputter out
Your flame swallowed in doubt
Light the cigarette and take a breath,
The smoke inflates your chest and thins your blood so you bleed less inside

Left with the mess that came about
When you chose to live without out
On foreign shores you fight or die
Life's thrown before your eyes and leaves it's toll
On your calloused empty soul

[Chorus]
How long, how long will we be desperately alone,
How long, how long?
How long, how long will we have to pay for what we've done, how long, how long?

"What we would give to feel alive!"
Through the fog a muffled cry,
"The anchor's lost and so am I,"
We fall victims to the tide
I'm free to drift and free to die on my terms now

[Chorus]

Sick with regret you sputter out

One thing i love about this bad is that you can listen and think it has a good beat then go back and truely listen to the lryics and find its true meaning. i love bands like that.

Many of us serving overseas feel that this song speaks to us. I am wondering how long we will have to pay for this war, in blood, marriages, children... The versus are written to perfection.

M Richardson

same here! and i agree w/crazyfreak1919 with respect to matt mcdonald (lead singer) being my favorite lyricist- along with matt theissen. this band's songs actually have meaning, different from most secular music today, which i love and value greatly.
