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
One, 21 Guns
Lay down your arms
Give up the fight
One, 21 Guns
Throw up your arms into the sky

You and I

I think the only people that should have a responsibility for singing about social issues or politics or anything like that are the ones that aren’t full of shit about it you know? Or the ones that aren’t preaching. You know, I mean if you are going to write a political song it’s gotta come from the same place as where you write a love song. You know it can’t just be some empty rhetoric and a bunch of finger pointing, you have to have yourself involved in it. So it’s like when I have a song like ‘Don’t wanna be an American idiot’, I’m talking about myself and what’s going on in my country at the same time, how do I fit into it and how do I feel alienated from it at the same time. So it’s self-depricating but it’s also trying to empower yourself.
