Luke Siedle – I Don't Want To Be A Martyr lyrics

We were polishing our school shoes
And listening to the radio
And wondering where time would go
And if it would take us along
And thinking of assassinating
Presidents or movie stars
Go high or low, don't go at all
They'll make it worth your while to fall
But you and I just travelling
On some road to down below
They tell me that the only way
To get to heaven is through hell
So why don't we make a stop
At the petrol station for some coffee
Muse about the time when we were young
And when we thought we knew it all

I don't want to be a martyr for your cause

We were breaking into houses
And stealing television sets
And lying in hospital beds
Regretting all those cigarettes
Don't tell me how to live my life
You know I'm just gonna wind up dead
Look up there at the ufo's
They're coming down to save us
From the boredom of the planet earth
The strip clubs and the Sunday Service
Flush it all down the drain
It's not worth saving anyway
So why don't we go outside
The music in here is too loud
We'll talk and share a bottle
And maybe we'll start falling for...

I don't want to be a martyr for your cause

Let's just go, to where I don't know
There must be a place where we
Can laugh and cry and start a fight
Come on let's go, let's leave behind that load
There must be a place where we can feel
Like we're alive

We were blowing off our dates
To save the world from domination
But if we could all be superman
Then World War 3 is a competition
If only we could outrun
All the gunslingers and politicians
Rob a bank, and make a break
And drive our getaway car
Until memories all catch up with us
Tie us down, and wait for backup
If you could take my handcuffs off
Then I would wash away your makeup
Why don't we plead guilty to our dreams
And our convictions
If there's anything worth living for
It's not to be a victim anymore

I don't want to be a martyr for your cause
