​For Nothing

This song is by Love Division.

Have you come to understand
The water falls between your hands
The limits of the truths you reach
The numbered words that you can preach

Have you come to realize
The sad escape of compromise
The lost ambition in your eyes
The chances you'll be giving up

To keep believing
To try and never give in
To come an inch to seal it
Reach out and never touch again

All the way ahead you cross
Expectations made it worse
Gauging, forging nerves of steel
They should help out when you kneel

All those dreams of victory
Swallowed down in misery
"You won't know unless you try"
But trying made it suicide

To keep believing
To vow to never give in
To swallow down their pigskin
Reach out and never rise again

For Nothing
For Nothing

It's the singer, not the song
They'll make sure they prove you wrong
Sparking flames in paradise
The wrong advice to make it right

Trying to find but out of sight
Always more than meets the eye
Velvet flags when you die
When you die

It should be down to us, my friend
We make their numbers in the end
They'll put the flowers on your grave

To keep believing
To vow to never give in
To come an inch to seal it
Reach out and never touch again

For Nothing
For Nothing


... Martyrs die for nothing...
