21 Guns Lyrics Green Day

21 Guns Lyrics by Green Day from the new album 21st Century Breakdown

21 Guns:

Do you know what's worth fighting for,
When it's not worth dying for?
Does it take your breath away
And you feel yourself suffocating?
Does the pain weigh out the pride?
And you look for a place to hide?
Did someone break your heart inside?
You're in ruins

One, 21 guns
Lay down your arms
Give up the fight
One, 21 guns
Throw up your arms into the sky,
You and I

When you're at the end of the road
And you lost all sense of control
And your thoughts have taken their toll
When your mind breaks the spirit of your soul
Your faith walks on broken glass
And the hangover doesn't pass
Nothing's ever built to last
You're in ruins.

One, 21 guns
Lay down your arms
Give up the fight
One, 21 guns
Throw up your arms into the sky,
You and I

Did you try to live on your own
When you burned down the house and home?
Did you stand too close to the fire?
Like a liar looking for forgiveness from a stone

When it's time to live and let die
And you can't get another try
Something inside this heart has died
You're in ruins.

One, 21 guns
Lay down your arms
Give up the fight
One, 21 guns
Throw up your arms into the sky,
You and I

It probably wouldn't be on the radio? "Gun" isn't allowed on the radio. -_-

They just played this on the radio.....so I guess gun isn't an issue. Great song......heard it and came straight here. Hope they write a choir version.....i'd love to sing it with a group.

Yeah! Here in Mexico they've already played that song on the radio! Green Day Fucking Rulez! Green forever!

Yawn...one of the worst songs on the album. Green Day needs to steer clear of this type of song or they will quickly become predictable and irrelevant.

"Green Day needs to steer clear of this type of song or they will quickly become predictable and irrelevant."

What? This is exactly the type of song that will KEEP them relevant! As for predictable, well, did you expect to find a song such as Last Night On Earth on this album? 'Cause I certainly didn't! Songs like these tend to have a much longer shelf-life than songs joking about masturbation and using drugs!

OMG anyone that says that 21 guns is something they need to stay away from isa fucking asshole!!!!!!!!! ok, this is what is going to make billions of people love them, because they can appeal to EVERYONE ok. this is one of the best songs on this album and is almost the best (i personally like murder city) this is an awesome and if you don't like the new green day,well fuck off and go live in the past (and get a real life)

Love the whole CD. Saw them do 21 Guns on Sat Night Live this weekend - awesome. Don't mock me but I really would like to understand..... What does the 1 21 Guns mean? All I can think of is a 21 Gun Salute. Any help is appreciated. (Go Green Day - you're the best)
