about

The original lyrics:

See the ashes fall
From the burning stage, you're crying
Here, the music died
With all the pretty pictures you wanted

So, we're here and now
But what's now is gone
Always
Wanting peace on earth
Until you see the birth
It takes some, some time

'Cause in this heartache
I'm finding what it is to be man

One two three four
One foot in front of the other
Kiss the pretty girl
Stand up and lead like the others

'Cause your idea's best
Your motive is best
I guess I'll follow this
All this motionlessness

Taking all the time
Being cute and shining
You're always
Going loud and strong
Let it pass
But you can't find it in yourself

'Cause in this heartache
I'm finding what it is to be man

One two three four
One foot in front of the other
Kiss the pretty girl
Stand up and lead like the others

'Cause your idea's best
All this motionlessness

One two three four
One punch right after the other
Stand up for yourself
Pick up the poor like you otta

'Cause what you've done is best
Your history is best
I have to follow this
All this motionlessness

Slam me down on the floor
Tear my heart out and roar
'Cause this motionless
Is all your motionlessness

If sane be war or peace
Choose I war or peace?
Truth seeks man or myth
Seeming more and more myth

I'll pick me up when I wanna
Put you down when I oughta
Curse and scream when I feel it
Use the words when I need it

I'll pick the worst of the fools
Speak my mind to the humble
Say I hate you when I hate you
I love you when I love you

I'll be a man like I see it
Judge a man like I see em
hear in a god like I know it
Curse the gods just to show it

Kill a man 'cause he hurt me
Kiss a man 'cause he cured me
Hear a fool 'cause he's worth it
Die for a man 'cause he's earned it

lyrics

See the ashes fall
From the burning stage, you're crying
Here, the music died
With all the pretty pictures you wanted

So, we're here and now
But what's now is gone
Always
Wanting peace on earth
Until you see the birth
It takes some, some time

'Cause in this heartache
I'm finding what it is to be man

One two three four
One foot in front of the other
Kiss the pretty girl
Stand up and lead like the others

'Cause your idea's best
Your motive is best
I guess I'll follow this
All this motionlessness

Taking all the time
Being cute and shining
You're always
Going loud and strong
Let it pass
But you can't find it in yourself

'Cause in this heartache
I'm finding what it is to be man

One two three four
One foot in front of the other
Kiss the pretty girl
Stand up and lead like the others

'Cause your idea's best
All this motionlessness

If sane be war or peace
Choose I war or peace?
Truth seeks man or myth
Seeming more and more myth

I'll pick me up when I wanna
Put you down when I oughta
Curse and scream when I feel it
Use the words when I need it

I'll pick the worst of the fools
Speak my mind to the humble
Say I hate you when I hate you
I love you when I love you

Be a man like I see it
Judge a man like I see him
Hear a god like I know it
Curse the gods just to show it

'Cause in this heartache
I'm finding what it is to be man
