ceschi – take it all back (parts 1 – 4) lyrics

Loading...

[verse]
on the road again –
that was a reference to cormac mccarthy
thirty-three, still singing “f-ck the police”
while the mark of the beast
surrounds me through targeted marketing
awfully ominous, aren’t we?
i’ma be honest with all of these zombies
making a mockery out of humanity
thinking that a meme is a revolutionary strategy
please try to dream
bigger than a five inch screen
and i’ll fight and scream
even if they don’t hear me
never wanted to be anything better than anybody
only want to think up possibilities for everybody
getting a little more free
but we’re still trapped in a prison of debt
because of corporate greed
that’s gangster shit
keep most poor while the few stay rich
they tell me, “that’s how it is”
but i want to believe in more than this
been a captain of a slow sinking ship
got locked up ’cause a motherf-cker never snitched
life can change so quick
grandpas gone, little brother had a kid
still singing these songs
don’t know how to quit
they tell me that i got a peter pan complex
heading to my middle age, not grown yet
if growing up means settling for the least evil in a race between rats
i don’t know about that
i don’t know about that

[chorus]
was a straight edge youth with broken noses
watching friends throw away youth through overdoses
we sang minor threat while dad smoked crack in jersey
we sang bad brains pma, a, a
was a straight edge youth with broken noses
watching friends throw away youth through overdoses
we sang minor threat while dad smoked crack in jersey
we sang bad brains pma, a, a

[refrain]
take it all back
wish i could take it all back, take it all back
take it all back
wish i could take it all back, take it all back
take it all back
wish i could take it all back, take it all back
take it all back
wish i could take it all back, take it all back

[verse 1]
head in a lions mouth
oh, this silence feels so dumb
we’ve lost so many times
wouldn’t notice if we won

[chorus]
feel sorry for me
i am a human, self-aware
please don’t ignore me
i am a human, life’s unfair

[bridge]
one by one we’ll spill our guts
on the floor, whoa-oh-oh
one by one we’ll dry up

[verse 2]
children burst into flames
on a battlefield somewhere
but my insides are numb
and i’m struggling to care

[chorus]
feel sorry for me
i am a human, unprepared
please just reward me
i am a human, you should care

[verse]
is anything relevant?
is there anything else worth mentioning?
show me your belief and i’ll question it
while they’re waiting for jesus to resurrect
we’re stuck in a system that will never represent
most of us residents
i’m f-cked and a felon, tough luck
all the debt’s piled up to my neck, so what?
i’ll go a little bit insane
with a nine millimeter to the brain
every other rap is another bad attempt to redefine pain
teen angst never left these veins
guess that i can’t win if i don’t pay
the sting of failure never fades away
but it’s all okay
david bowie’s ghost told me that
we could be heroes one day
been this way since i can remember
really don’t think it’ll get much better
thirty-five candles dripping on a birthday cake
and i’m still living like a d-mn rebel
i don’t got a boss
don’t worship any corpse on a cross
never went to temple or mosque
i barely got a cause
but i still pray for the human race
in my own way
every word, each song

[outro]
take it all back
wish i could take it all back, take it all back
take it all back
wish i could take it all back, take it all back
take it all back
wish i could take it all back, take it-
