Legends That Die

This song is by Billie Ray Martin and appears on the album 18 Carat Garbage (2001).

Rats in the basement
The family upstairs

Grow, grow tall as can be for the family
On the fourth floor, oh
Everyone here will have love for sale

Today the stars are on the ground
The girl is on the game
If she don't get a job
She won't be back to play

Rats in the basement
The family upstairs
Food on the table
And strangers that swear
Doves in the attic
And dogs on the stairs
Legends that die
And live again

Wait, see
Peroxide and pearls oh they come and go
A knock on the door, oh-hoh
Who is outside
Is the dog all right

Dad's on the floor
These crumbling stairs
Are no solid ground
Heroes never fall
Legends never found

Rats in the basement
The family upstairs
Food on the table
And strangers that swear
Doves in the attic
And dogs on the stairs
Legends that die
And live again

Won't you come back again and take her hand
Won't you come back again and take her hand
Help them to understand what makes a man
And if they don't mind tell them to find

Rats in the basement
The family upstairs
Food on the table
And strangers that swear
Doves in the attic
And dogs on the stairs
Legends that die
And live again

Rats in the basement
The family upstairs
Food on the table
And strangers that swear
Doves in the attic
And dogs on the stairs
Legends that die
And live again
They live again
