A Moment Of Silence

This song is by Dan P. and appears on the split album You By Me: Vol. 1 (2010) by Toh Kay and Dan P..

This song is a cover of "A Moment Of Silence" by Streetlight Manifesto.
A moment of silence, please
For those that never get the chance
They show up to the party
But they're never asked to dance
The losers, the liars, the bastards, the thieves
The cynicists, the pessimists
And those that don't believe in nothing

I never met a loser
That I didn't see eye to eye with
I declare
I stare into your eyes
You look right past me into the air
What's it like
To stand in your shoes?
To have never felt the belt
Of somebody's abuse?
So, I take the bottle
Tip it to all my heroes that have passed
Alas, you have left us
But your stories they will last
Uninspired
By the recruiting call
Independent we stand
Independent we fall

So tell me:
How long do you think
You can go before you lose it all?
Before they call you bluff and watch you fall?
I don't know
But I'd like to think I had control
At some point
But I let it go and I lost my soul
Sit tight
But the revolution's years away
I'm losing faith
I'm running low on things to say
So I guess I have no choice but to regurgitate
The tired anthem of a loser and a hypocrite
Oh! To have died that night
I realized it wouldn't last!
Days were numbered
And the reaper tipped the hourglass
Final mayday of our sinking ship has come and passed
Oh! To the west
You don't know what it is you're running from
And everybody's laughing loud
Your last chance to make your mother and your father proud

A moment of silence, please
For those that never get the chance
They show up to the party
But they're never asked to dance
The losers, the liars, the bastards, the thieves
The cynicists, the pessimists
And those that don't believe in nothing

They said: "A pox
Upon your house, upon your family
And everyone you ever knew
And everyone you'll ever meet"
I bet they think we wish we joined when we could
But we do what we want
We don't do what we should
Everybody's laughing
'Cause they're thinking they're in on something I don't get
Don't forget
I connect and I heard every word you said
Like a child
Who believes he was wronged
If you hate me so much
Then stop singing my songs

So tell me:
How long do you think
You can go before you lose it all?
Before they call you bluff and watch you fall?
I don't know
But I'd like to think I had control
At some point
But I let it go and I lost my soul
Sit tight
But the revolution's years away
I'm losing faith
I'm running low on things to say
So I guess I have no choice but to regurgitate
The tired anthem of a loser and a hypocrite
Oh! To have died that night
I realized it wouldn't last!
Days were numbered
And the reaper tipped the hourglass
Final mayday of our sinking ship has come and passed
Oh! To the west
You don't know what it is you're running from
And everybody's laughing loud
Your last chance to make your mother and your father proud
