Rise Against – The Great Die-Off Lyrics

There’s a fire on the borders and it’s burning down the walls you built high
And there’s a steady stream of anger and it’s spilling from the coasts
A tidal wave

And the world says we reap what we sow
To where I bury you up in my home
The nights we’ll reclaim but we’re sick of the wait

We want it all and we want it now
Tonight I’ll watch your fires burn out
With guns in hand we pry these guns from yours
We want it all and we want it now
A tide has come in to drown you out
We make ourselves at home while your body’s still warm

Creation tell us that the rituals are only just clocks on wrong times
And something triggers each and every time I hear you say
“God bless this place”

But your numbers are dwindling now
Though endangered we’ll still hunt you down
With heads on a stake long may you reign

We want it all and we want it now
Tonight I’ll watch your fires burn out
With guns in hand we pry these guns from yours
We want it all and we want it now
A tide has come in to drown you out
We make ourselves at home while your body’s still warm

And there’s a fire on the borders and it’s burning down the walls you built high
And there’s a steady stream of anger and it’s spilling from the coasts
A tidal wave

We want the motherfucking world and we want it now
Tonight I’ll watch your fires burn out
With guns in hand we pry these guns from yours

No I don’t want to wait
I know I better way
So step aside, come on or better yet just go away
Our chance has finally come
Tomorrow I’ll be another one now
No I’m not gonna wait
We want it now
Yeah we’re dousing the flames
We want it now

[Lyrics to The Great Die-Off by Rise Against]

    I’m in high school and just reetlcny had my first homecoming, it was a blast!A usual high school dance consistes of:-The first 20 minutes everyone is meeting up with their friends, complimenting everyone on their looks, music is playing but only a few people are dancing (a mere foot tap)-The dancing: A lot of upbeat pop and hip hop songs are played, popular bands at the time are a must along with Lady GaGa, LMFAO, The Black Eyed Peas, Cha Cha Slide, You’re a Jerk (dances like those)The main type of dancing will be jumping with your hands up, moving your body with the beat, grinding, singing alon with the songs with your friends, people being forced to dance by everyone around them, no one really cares how you dance (unless your doing something big and embarassing)-There’s food spread out and tables with little party favors depending on the them. (i.e. zebra print glasses for a safari theme)It’s much better than middle school dances so have fun!
