A Moment Of Silence

This song is by Toh Kay and appears on the album Streetlight Lullabies (2011).

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
And they're never asked to dance
The losers and the liars, yeah, the bastards and the thieves
The cynicists, yeah, 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?
And I
Take the bottle, yeah
I 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
And 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, yeah
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!
Our days were numbered, yeah
The reaper tipped the hourglass
The final mayday of our sinking ship had 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
Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa
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
Oh, the losers and the liars, yeah, the bastards and the thieves
The cynicists, yeah, 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
Now we don't do what we should, yeah
Everybody's laughing, yeah
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
And 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, yeah
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!
Our days were numbered, yeah
The reaper tipped the hourglass
The final mayday of our sinking ship had 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
Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa-oh
